Agents of the ASCI and Unusual Incidents Unit with SCP-4256 following a raid on a Chicago Spirit operation, 1932. ASCI和特异事故处的特工与SCP-4256,在一次对芝加哥鬼灵的突袭后,1932年。

Item #: SCP-4256

Object Class: Thaumiel

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-4256 is contained in Wing B of Site-19's production area. Spare parts and tools relevant to the maintenance of SCP-4256 are kept in a specifically marked container. Use of the object is restricted to personnel trained in the operation of AutoVariable printing presses. Assignments for SCP-4256 are to be given to personnel with sub-60 scores on Foundation Loyalty Examinations, or with a history of continuous code violations.

Completed orders of SCP-4256-1 are to be placed on palettes and labeled for delivery.

Description: SCP-4256 is an antique industrial printing press, built in the late 1920s. Affixed to the top of SCP-4256 is a brass plaque reading "For R.C. - Kowalewicz."
描述:SCP-4256是一台古董工业印刷机,建于1920年代后期。SCP-4256顶部贴有一个黄铜匾牌,上面写着“致R.C. - Kowalewicz”。

Individuals who operate SCP-4256 for prolonged periods (typically longer than a week) undergo a cognitive change, characterized by a decrease in or complete elimination of anti-establishment desires and behaviors. It is believed that SCP-4256 converts the desire to act in a rebellious manner into mechanical energy, as there is no visible method by which to power SCP-4256 using mundane means.

SCP-4256 is capable of converting inserted paper material into SCP-4256-1. SCP-4256-1 is a form of paper which is capable of converting items inserted into it into either two-dimensional images of that item, or text which describes that item.

SCP-4256 accepts all paper items for SCP-4256-1 conversion, even if they would normally be incompatible with an industrial printing press. Items such as newspapers, magazines, brochures, origami sculptures, several-page unbound manuscripts, and multiple copies of The Bible have been converted into SCP-4256-1 with no obvious issues from SCP-4256.

The amount of matter that can be inserted into an SCP-4256-1 instance is only limited by its surface area. However, animals are completely incapable of surviving inside SCP-4256 for prolonged periods, usually expiring due to a lack of oxygen. SCP-4256-1 instances can then be reached into in order to retrieve the items. Due to its space efficiency and ease of transport, SCP-4256-1 was used commonly by members of the Chicago Spirit to smuggle alcohol and weapons. Factory actors also utilized SCP-4256-1 to discreetly deliver products to clients.

Destruction of an SCP-4256-1 instance results in anomalous effects. Tearing an SCP-4256-1 instance will result in the expulsion of materials within, usually damaged in a manner corresponding to the tearing of the material. Burning SCP-4256-1 instances results in the items within being ejected, and the force of the ejection causing massive topographical anomalies. Areas in which SCP-4256-1 is burned have disproportionate interior and exterior dimensions, a phenomenon which was exploited by members of the Chicago Spirit.

Addendum 0.02- History: Civilian reports of suspicious individuals producing objects ranging from vehicles and weapons to pieces of machinery and entire mills from folded papers had been recorded since 1932 in Chicago and other known areas operated by the Chicago Spirit.
附录 0.02- 历史: 自1932年以来,在芝加哥以及芝加哥鬼灵经营的其他已知地区,已记录到关于可疑人员用折叠纸生产物品的民间报告,物品的范围从车辆、武器到机械零件乃至整个工厂。

The first captured instance of SCP-4256-1 was secured in 1933 by the United States Bureau of Investigation's1 Unusual Incidents Unit, following a raid on a suspected paracriminal hideout in Swine's Den Meat Packing Facility prompted by the sudden death of an investigating agent. The location was discovered to be a large spacial anomaly owned and operated as a front by the Factory. Due to devastating losses experienced by the UIU, assistance from the American Secure Containment Initiative was requested upon discovering the Factory's connections to the Chicago Spirit via a signed letter found in the Master Foreman's office.
第一个被捕获的SCP-4256-1实例于1933年被合众国调查局2特异事故处在突袭“猪窝”肉类包装设施内一处嫌疑犯藏身处后取得,这次突袭由一名调查特工的突然死亡引起。该位置被发现是一处大型空间异常,被工厂的一个前台组织所拥有和经营。由于UIU遭受了毁灭性的损失,在通过总领班办公室里找到的一封签名信发现工厂与芝加哥鬼灵的联系后,美国安保收容倡议会(American Secure Containment Initiative)被请求协助。

Thanks for the press.
As a gesture of appreciation for what you've done for me, I got you a present. The spook that's been snooping around your joint won't be bothering you anymore.
为了感谢你为我所做的一切,我给你一份礼物。 在你的地盘周围窥探的幽灵不会再打搅你了。
You should put him to work soon.

Of note, the above document was discovered soaked in blood, presumably belonging to former UIU Agent Michael Boskovich.
值得注意的是,上述文件被发现时浸满血液,可能属于前UIU特工Michael Boskovich。

SCP-4256 was recovered and contained in 1934 following a joint ASCI-UIU raid on Richard Chapell's safe house3. A series of correspondences with various individuals were discovered, including a chain of letters with the Master Foreman of the Factory location.

FROM: 发件人:

BODY: 正文:

Mister Chapell,
It is with great pleasure that I write to you today
in celebration of the five-year anniversary of our
business relations. As a present, the Factory and
I bestow upon you this extravagant printing press
capable of recreating the properties of the paper
used to deliver it to you. For additional mileage
of the gift, I recommend having your least
enthusiastic men use it. This will correct
unwanted behaviors quickly.

Here is to another five years.



SCP-4256's cognition-altering properties were discovered in 1936, and widespread use of SCP-4256-1 instances by the ASCI followed, with J. Edgar Hoover often personally selecting individuals to operate SCP-4256 based on their loyalty to him and the organization as a whole. Due to the cognition-altering capabilities of SCP-4256, it is believed Hoover utilized the anomaly to suppress the spread of rumors of his alleged relationship with Bureau of Investigations Associate Director Clyde Tolson.

Under the ASCI, SCP-4256-1 was commonly used to facilitate the discreet transport of resources such as ammunition and emergency provisions, as well as larger items such as vehicles and, in one case, construction supplies. Following its integration into the modern Foundation, usage of SCP-4256-1 continued, and it was later integrated into the containment procedures for three SCP objects necessitating containment in a two-dimensional space.

SCP-4256-1 usage was largely discontinued for purposes outside of containment following the advent of stable wormhole generation in 2005. Despite this, all Foundation panic bunkers are equipped with a modified SCP-4256-1 instance containing 5 years worth of water, food, fuel, as well as tools and means of communicating with other sites.

An estimated 89% of Foundation personnel within the continental United States (including at Sites 17, 19, and 77) are currently under SCP-4256's effects. Plans for implementation in the containment of humanoid anomalies are currently in development.
据估计,美国大陆(包括Site 17、19和77)89%的基金会工作人员目前处于SCP-4256的影响之下。将其应用于收容人形异常的计划目前正在制定中。
