Item #: RPC-XXX

Object Class: Alpha

Containment Protocols: RPC-XXX is to be stored in standard containment locker ███-██-██ on Site-02. Researchers are to obtain permission from the current lead researcher before initiating a test using the object.

Description: RPC-XXX is a standard acoustic guitar matching no known brand. Samples taken from RPC-XXX show that its wooden components are composed primarily of carved silver birch (Betula pendula) and its metal parts consist of partially oxidized, but mundane steel. The strings have not been tested to avoid damaging the anomalous effect playing the instrument generates.

When RPC-XXX is played by a sapient entity possessing moderate or greater skill with stringed instruments, the surrounding area is affected in several ways.

After an average of seventy seconds of playing RPC-XXX, with a period lacking operation lasting no longer than thirty-seven seconds, a bundle of wood (found to be a random assortment of pine, birch, and soapwood) manifests two meters forward of the performer. The amount of wood ranges in size, from an average of 846 cubic centimeters to a far positive outlier of 3 cubic meters.

Twenty seconds after manifestation, the wood will proceed to ignite. It will burn for as long as the instrument is played, appearing to not consume the wood while doing so. This fire is considered to be the center of the anomaly. The area affected by RPC-XXX ranges in size correlating with that of the fire. An average diameter of 16.2 meters has been recorded through extensive testing.

After RPC-XXX's effect has been maintained for an average interval of eight minutes, ambient light within the area of effect is reduced by an estimated sixty percent. Light produced by the fire appears to be exempt from this, however.

If objects are within the area of effect that could be considered seating (chairs, fallen logs, boulders, etc.), various entities (with no consistent appearance) will manifest in a seated position and remain for an indeterminate amount of time, or until the effect ends, whichever occurs first. These entities are referred to as RPC-XXX-B. The form of RPC-XXX-B appears to be loosely dependent on the music performed using RPC-XXX. Instances of RPC-XXX-B will rarely respond to attempts at communication.

Notable tests and successful interactions have been recorded for overview. The subject refers to the person operating RPC-XXX.

These are concepts that I've got a vague idea of, without profound definition.
