More Crazy SCPS (Every Other Wednesday This October)

Some readers may find this disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised!

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.

More Awesome and Unique Board Games (Every Other Tuesday)

Hello fellow gamers, and welcome to a familiar topic! Board Games have always interested me, and I keep finding new ones to talk about. This post, as before, will be covering some of these games, including the rules, pieces, and publishers. Now, let’s play!

 

  • Pandemic (2008) Type: Medical, Strategy, and Family Mechanisms: Hand management, Movement, Cooperative Play 2-4 Players Playing Time: 45 mins Ages: 8+ Designed by: Matt Leacock Artists: Josh Lappel, Tom Thiel, Christian Hanisch, Chris Quilliams, and Regis Moulun Published by: Z-Man Games

Pandemic is a fast-paced Strategy game that puts you in the shoes of a disease-fighting specialist. A vast array of diseases have spread to various parts of the world, and it’s up to you and your group to eradicate them before they become incurable. You take turns drawing cards from the deck, however not all of them are beneficial. Mixed throughout the deck are dangerous cards that can accelerate and boost the disease’s spread and power. Each specialist has a very unique skill that can help everyone out in their time of need. If you manage to destroy four diseases, you win the game, however all is lost if time runs out, or if the disease becomes immune to everything. (This sounds like a ton of fun!) The game has 6 expansions, and has won many rewards throughout the years.

Crappy Video Game Art (Every Other Wednesday)

Hello fellow video game fans! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more crappy art. Now, let’s begin!

  • Mystery of the Druids For The PC Release Date: September 14th, 2001 Rated M Developed by House of Tales Genre: Adventure

Mystery of the Druids is a buggy mess of a Point-and-click adventure game. The characters look like shit, and the game crashes quite often. It has gained infamy among the internet for having one of the worst covers in video game history. The cover depicts a supposed “druid” with an incredibly stupid expression on his face. I definitely don’t want to play it after seeing the cover.

  • Dr. Sudoku for the Game Boy Advance Released: August 26th, 2006 Rated E Published by 505 Games Genre: Puzzle

This is a very obscure GBA game with a pretty horrible cover. It features a Japanese man with a cartoony mouth. Various numbers are spewing out, and the title of the game is erupting out of his head.

More Crappy Yu-Gi-Oh!Cards (Every Other Friday)

Hello fellow Duelists! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more crazy cards. Now, let’s duel!

  • Flame Ogre Type: Fiend/Effect Attribute: Fire 7 Stars Appearance: A red ogre with bulging muscles and green eyes. ATK/ 2400 DEF/ 1700 Effect: This card cannot be Special Summoned. When this card is Normal Summoned, draw 1 card.

For something that looks so awesome its effect sure sucks! First, its stats are terrible for a 2 Tribute monster. Second, not being able to Special Summon it limits its playability. The only good thing about this card is its draw ability, and still there are many eras cards that are much better than this.

  • Swordsman From A Distant Land Type: Warrior/Effect 1 star Appearance: A strange samurai with bright yellow eyes. ATK/ 250 DEF/ 250 Effect: If this card attacked an opponent’s monster, after damage calculation: Destroy that monster during the 5th End Phase after the attack.

Wow, this card is garbage. Its stats are completely abysmal, and the death after five turns is way too long. The monster will probably be tributed or XYZ summoned before the effect goes off anyway. I don’t recommend play it at all.
