Registered Phenomena Code: 036

Object Class: Omega Yellow

Hazards: Geological Hazard, Memory Alteration Hazard, Extra-dimensional Hazard, Ideological Hazard.

Containment Protocols: It is currently impossible to contain RPC-XX. Undercover Authority agents are to be deployed to heavily populated and important settlements around the globe. These agents are to monitor for advertisements, recruitment attempts and any suspicious activity related to RPC-036.

Upon receiving reports of anomalous activity or recruitment efforts related to RPC-036, MST Uniform-42 "The Lurkers" are to be deployed to the location accompanied by no more than 3 D-classes as soon as possible to carry out Procedure M-404.

In the event Procedure M-404 is carried out successfully, Authority undercover agents are to monitor the area for the remainder of the week until the nearest Sunday, in case RPC-036 manifests again on the same location. Temporary containment is to be considered successful if no more activity related to the restaurant is reported for the remainder of the week.

In the event Procedure M-404 is unsuccessful, undercover agents are to be stationed around the globe. M-404 is to notify a possible teleportation to their territory and to remain alert for anomalous activity.

Personnel or civilians that enter RPC-036 are to be considered lost and no attempt at rescuing them is to be made.

Description: RPC-XXX is a small, derelict building resembling a contemporary fast food establishment. A sign nearby designates the building as "Mr. Bogart". The location covers an area of approximately 6 square meters. The source of electricity and running water is currently unknown as it is not connected to any power supply or water reserve upon manifestation. The location of RPC-036 does not remain stagnant, as it has the ability to manifest at a random location bearing a high population. However, after a week, RPC-036 will proceed to materialize in another location. RPC-036 has a greater probability of materializing in densely-populated, urban centers. When manifesting in a city, it will modify its menu contents and language according to the region it appears in.

Items produced by RPC-036 produce no notable effects on the consumer, with the exception of the Bogart Burger. The Bogart Burger has been observed to maintain a continuous appearance on the menu produced by RPC-036. Other Items in the menu are observed to have anomalous effects like Bogart Burgers, changing the effects depending on the consumption.
Upon consuming the item (Bogart Burger), the individual will experience the following:

  1. A feeling of euphoria followed by accelerated heart rate, and an increase in dopamine, endorphin and oxytocin levels resulting in an intense feeling of joy.
  2. Dilated pupils
  3. Repetitive speech patterns.
  4. Immediate personality change.
  5. Loss of recent memories.
  6. Defensiveness towards RPC-036

Repeated ingestion of the object will result in a marked increase of the cited effects:

  • Heart attack
  • Hyperthermia
  • Symptoms of addiction
  • Accelerated onset of obesity
  • High blood pressure
  • Hyperemesis
  • Erratic behavior
  • Diabetes
  • Fainting
  • Hypercholesterolemia

Upon initial manifestation, RPC-036 does not contain any individuals. The first five people to enter its interior will be placed under a memetic effect. After approximately 30 seconds, the memetic effect will take full effect and the affected individuals will assume a job that relates to that of a casual restaurant worker. While devoid of staff, RPC-036 will start to produce RPC-036-1. RPC-036-1 are small advertising notices that appear in local journals, street billboards, and signs outside the restaurant door.

Any RPC-036-1 instances will subconsciously draw individuals using memetic effects, regardless of gender, race, or age. This effect decreases after the 5 staff members are chosen. After the exact one week period is over, any person who worked inside will return to their state before being affected by the memetics. All memory of the restaurant will become distant.

When questioned, all subjects recount their experience within RPC-036 as an event occurring several years ago, regardless of recency. When questioned, all subjects will express a detailed account regarding their desire to consume RPC-036's "famous burgers." Subjects additionally express their experience within RPC-036 as "one of the happiest moments in their life", and further note their appreciation of Mr. Bogart. The owner is described as a "gentle, happy old man", allegedly measuring exactly 1.62 meters, and weighing 58 Kg. This individual has been described as wearing dark glasses and having a sturdy build. Every appearance of Mr. Bogart will result in the announcement of the end of the restaurant operations. In the exact time of 17:43 of the day Mr. Bogart arrives, it will request for all staff to leave the establishment.
All the reasons cited for the incident will be "bankruptcy". Attempts to stay after the time limit of one week will result in disappearance through anomalous means. (See Addendum 3).
