Hello fellow researchers! It’s Wednesday, and you know what means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more terrifying SCPs. Now, grab your Class S protective equipment, and let’s begin!
- SCP-1182 The Clockwork Octopus Object Class: Safe
Description: SCP-1182 is a small octopus sculpture approximately 171 mm in length and 76 mm in breadth, weighing 312 grams. It is constructed from a combination of wire, copper, and titanium alloy. The head of the octopus contains a clockwork contraption that serves no documented purpose. When held by a subject (who will henceforth be referred to as SCP-1182-1), SCP-1182 and SCP-1182-1 will become effectively invisible. SCP-1182 causes the subject to camouflage perfectly with their surroundings. The sculpture causes an as of yet unexplained reaction on SCP-1182-1’s pigmentation, giving it the properties of an octopus in disguise. This also means that the subject can only achieve full invisibility while naked, as the effect does not extend to clothing. The camouflage is distinctly much better than that of a common octopus, as SCP-1182-1 blends in to the point where it is impossible to distinguish their position. If SCP-1182 is released, the subject appears to “blink” back into existence. The last thing to note is the mental effect that the SCP has on the subject. When held, the SCP will give the subject to perceive the room as being filled with water. The effects only occur if SCP-1182 comes in contact with skin.
- SCP-548 The Ice Spider Object Class: Euclid Description: SCP-548 is a female cobalt tarantula (Cyriopagopus lividus), 7.3 cm long. Its venom undergoes a highly endothermic reaction on contact with living tissue; a single bite, injecting less than 0.5 mL of venom, causes an average temperature drop of 38OC in the affected area. One bite is sufficient to cause localized frostbite in a human, and may even be lethal should the venom reach the central circulatory system. Victims smaller than SCP-548 are frequently frozen solid. SCP-548’s feeding structures are normal for a spider of its species except for the maxillae, which are extremely hard and serrated. It feeds by delivering a venomous bite, then dragging the prey to a safe place while it cools. While secluded, it proceeds to grind the prey’s still-frozen tissue into edible fragments. This feeding style requires unusual mouthpart strength.
