The Shepard and his Sheep


Registered Phenomena Code: XXX

Object Class: Beta-Orange

Hazards: Extreme Temperatures Hazard, Ideological Hazard, Sapient, Aggression

Containment Protocols: RPC-XXX's perimeter is to be maintained at all times. Every hour, assigned personnel are to check RPC-XXX with thermal binoculars for any activity. If signs of activity are found, it is to be reported to your superior immediately, especially if RPC-XXX-2 is involved.

Only teams of 5 people or less may be sent into RPC-XXX at once. Due to high fatality rates, these teams may only be comprised of D-Class or low risk personnel. The equipment to be supplied per person includes: 1 lighter, 1 set of matches, 3 food rations, 1 water canteen, and a heavy winter outfit. Additional items can be assigned as seen fit.

Any letters for RPC-XXX-1 are to be reviewed by a Level 4 official before delivery. The same applies to any received letters from RPC-XXX-1.

Description: RPC-XXX is a circular radius of 2,000 km located in Antarctica. Below are some of the anomalous properties inside of RPC-XXX. It should be noted that the list is subject to change.

  • The average temperature within RPC-XXX is -105°C1, deviating heavily from the surrounding area's temperature (-49°C).
  • It is impossible to generate an electric current inside of RPC-XXX, with the exception of bioelectricity2.
  • The plant life inside of RPC-XXX consists of multiple pine tree and shrub species not native to Antarctica. This flora creates a large, dense forest encompassing most of RPC-XXX.

Two known entities are present inside RPC-XXX, which are to be referred to as RPC-XXX-1 and RPC-XXX-2.

RPC-XXX-1 are sapient humanoids that are dressed in colonial era clothing3. A community of RPC-XXX-1 are located in a settlement roughly 5km from the northern edge of RPC-XXX. The area around this settlement is warm and humid, with plentiful amounts of grass and crops covering it. RPC-XXX-1 refuse to exit RPC-XXX, even when presented with both threats and bribes.

RPC-XXX-2 is an entity with an undocumented appearance that exhibits mental control over other organisms. It is presumed that it uses this ability in order to subdue prey for consumption4. All major expeditions (6 or more personnel) into RPC-XXX have been halted due to interference from RPC-XXX-2. However, RPC-XXX-2 is much less likely to interfere with small operations (1 to 5 personnel).

Anomalous Phenomena Acquisition Society (APAS): T-02


Overview: The APAS is a non-profit group dedicated to the collection of anomalies for entertainment purposes. The members of the APAS are those who are considered to be in the highest level of society. Going into specifics, many of their members fall into one of these categories: celebrity, CEO, kingpin, or politician. As for their relationship to the Authority, they have managed to raid several of our sites and transports, stealing RPCs in the process. These attacks are carried out by paid mercenaries (usually veterans and ex-cons) who are fed information from an unknown source. How this information is leaked is also unknown.


The Philosopher Device


Item #: RPC-XXX

Object Class: Alpha

Containment Procedures: RPC-XXX is to be housed at Site-88 in a locked containment chamber of 10m x 15m x 5m. No personnel higher than level 3 are permitted to enter the cell under any circumstances. Researchers and guards assigned to RPC-XXX are to be rotated out every 2 weeks, and given psychiatric evaluations.

Instances of RPC-XXX-2 are to be taken off RPC-XXX, and given a vacation week to recover.

Description: RPC-XXX is a alchemy based machine produced sometime during 174█. RPC-XXX is composed of beakers, flasks, and primitive versions of modern chemistry equipment5 laid out in a circular fashion on various tables. Most of the technology RPC-XXX is composed of was not available in the 18th century.

In the middle of RPC-XXX is a slab of stone with engravings on it, this is the primary input. To the left of the stone is a crushing mechanism meant for hard materials, this is the secondary input. The output is located at the back of the slab.

The purpose of RPC-XXX is to create gold through a chemical process, which the exact science of is unknown. The secondary input is reserved for lead, which is crushed manually in the mechanism, then placed into a beaker filled with water. The primary input is 1 live human(now referred to as RPC-XXX-1), which is to be placed on the slab, and [DATA EXPUNGED]. The beaker with lead and water is to then be [DATA EXPUNGED]. The contents of the beaker are then funneled into the rest of RPC-XXX, until the gold is produced.

Additionally, prolonged exposure to RPC-XXX makes individuals experience a strong desire to be put into RPC-XXX, and are now referred to as RPC-XXX-2. RPC-XXX-2 instances become increasingly more obsessed with RPC-XXX the more they are in contact with it.
