The SCP Adventure Writing Contest
November 3, 2023
MTF Gamma-9 (“The Silent Partners”) are a newly formed Mobile Task Force, created for the upcoming book SCP: The House of Solomon. They operate at the behest of the O5 Council, with handler Robert Edwards at the helm, executing assignments of critical importance to The SCP Foundation with stealth and precision.
In The House of Solomon, players are catapulted straight into the heart of the action, as they work to unravel a sinister conspiracy poised to eradicate the Foundation entirely. But before this team was the best of the best, what did their first assignment look like?
With the SCP Adventure Writing Contest, we invite the community to envision what this first mission might have entailed in a self-contained one-shot adventure.
This one-shot should be written as a complete adventure, with a Summary, Setup, Key NPCs, and breakdown of Important Locations. This assignment should allow the individual members of The Silent Partners (the players) to meet for the first time, and bond over the course of the mission. This assignment must be accessible to both combat and stealth approaches, and should deal with an SCP. The chosen SCP should pose a manageable threat to ensure the adventure remains concise and completable within a single session—avoiding apocalyptic SCPs or insta-kill entities that could potentially derail the narrative.
The winners of the competition will have their adventure included as a prologue in SCP: The House of Solomon, and will be duly credited for their contribution. In addition, winners will receive a digital copy of the book before its official release, followed by a physical copy upon its release.
We are excited to see the adventures you'll bring to life!
Your submission should revolve around the first assignment of The Silent Partners, laying the groundwork for the narrative of SCP: The House of Solomon.
