Hello and welcome to an updated guide for the #1 branch on the server, the Research Division!

Research Branch, Division, Department, whatever you want to call it, this is the go-to branch if you want to have a great RP experience!

If you're reading this, you're probably a young scout who wants to make a difference on the server and/or experience something new, well I will help you accomplish these all the while making you the best researcher possible who knows what they are doing all in one thread! And who better to teach you than an ex-Head Researcher.


Why the Research Branch is Important to the Server:

Without the Research Branch, the server would be a stale MilitaryRP with anomalies, and sure that may sound appealing but have you experienced sitting around, maybe doing cleaning here and there, terminating 076-2? It gets pretty repetitive after a while doesn't it? (if you enjoy doing that, by all means, don't let me stop you) This is where research comes in, research creates new RP and can affect the server positively or negatively, all of which can be done by you! You, as a researcher, have the ability to change how the SCPs and anomalies here function, be it by updated and unique containment procedures crafted by yourself or a group of researchers, or to neutralizing/terminating SCPs, or even being able to debunk SCPs and explain them with science, which is a pretty big deal.

Research is the backbone of the server and without it, the server will not be able to function properly.



What to do in Research:

So you got your application accepted, good job! You're one step further in becoming a great researcher! But now what? You just flagged up and you're sitting in R-Wing, likely viewing the testing requirements and available SCPs, thinking of what to test and who to test on, but you can't seem to spark any ideas that won't get you beat into a pulp ICly and OOCly. We've all been there, and it sucks. But don't just stand there doing nothing, you can do many activities in Research that isn't just testing!

Here's a list of some things you can do that is not testing:

  • Doing SCP interactions
    • Feeding 2292
    • Having a D-class interact with SCP-1370
    • Playing with SCP-1048
    • Conversating with SCP-343
    • And so much more! You can interact with almost any SCP in the facility (minus the obviously dangerous ones like 096, 682, etc.). Interactions can be whatever you want it to be as long as they are in line with the Research Code of Conduct and Testing Requirements! Doing interactions can lead to sparking a good test idea!

  • PassiveRP
    • Talking with a fellow researcher, talking with a co-worker can spark many topics such as brainstorming testing ideas or just having a casual conversation, this might even give you a test idea.
    • Getting something to eat and drink in the R-Wing Cafe. And, if you're a level 3 researcher, getting a non-anomalous drink from SCP-294, like a cup of Baja Blast.
    • Taking a bathroom break.
    • Etc.
Remember, we don't pay you to stand around and do nothing!


The Do's and Don'ts of Research:

This is the Do' and Don'ts: https://www.concordiagaming.com/threads/research-code-of-conduct.21481/
Follow that and you shouldn't be getting in any trouble. They were generally built off of common sense, so if you have a lick of common sense you should do fine.


The Ranks of Research:

Ranks are important in the Research Branch, it shows that you are trustworthy, competent, and your authority. Here is a list of the ranks:

Research Assistant (Clearance Level: Usually Level 2): You're lower than a Researcher, you are there to assist other researchers that you are assigned to assist from the Head Researcher or Research Supervisor(s). When you join the Research branch, you start as a Researcher, so becoming an assistant...you don't really want to be in this position. You don't have any ability to test on SCPs since your only job is to assist other researchers.

Researcher (Clearance Level: 2): You're the first main rank in Research, you can test on the majority of Safe and Euclid SCPs. However, if you want to do Keter testing you will need to go here to get your test approved. You, unfortunately, don't have access to much in Research besides the handful of Safe and Euclid SCPs. However, you can still join projects. Though in my point of view, a Researcher is basically the testing phase, as we don't know how you will do in your research duties and if you prove yourself worthy, competent, and trustworthy as a Researcher, you will become a Senior Researcher in no time.

Senior Researcher (Clearance Level: 3): This is where the real fun begins, you have been promoted from Researcher to Senior Researcher, you can now test on most if not all of the SCPs in the facility. With becoming a Senior Researcher, you are granted instant access to the vault (more on the vault later). As a Senior you will also be more likely to partake in largescale and important testing/projects as you have proven your trust well enough.

Research Supervisor (Clearance Level: 3): This is the farthest you can go without becoming the Head Researcher. If you have been promoted to a Supervisor, you have proven that you are beyond trustworthy and a leader. You have shown your dedication and care for the Research Branch as well as demonstrating your expertise skill in researching the anomalies we have contained here. You are the right-hand man to the Head Researcher and you will be helping the Head Researcher with most of his/her tasks and managing the branch alongside him/her. You are also (depending on the Head Researcher) granted the ability to do Researcher Applications on the forums.

Head Researcher (Clearance Level: 4): If you become a Head Researcher, congratulations, the Research Branch is now in your hands. You're the DVL, the head honcho, the big man of Research. You do what you want with it, but be careful in your choices as you can be booted out of your position by the Area Director. Do your best as everyone is looking up to you.


Research Projects:

Projects are important to the Research Branch as it helps in pinpointing a problem and having a group of researchers, big or small, solve it. Research Projects are very impactful on the server as they are usually based on an issue that needs to be resolved. Some examples being: Terminating 682, neutralizing 019, finding a cure for XYZ-009 "The Black Crab Disease", and other problems. If you want to make a major difference in the server this is where to start as projects are usually large. Projects do require a lot of permission sometimes and also require intensive RP (but that's what you're here for...right?). If you believe there is something that needs to be done with a group, researched heavily, and dealt with, don't hesitate to propose the project idea to your local Supervisor or Head Researcher, they don't bite.

Projects are mainly posted here so take a gander at them when you're ready, in your respective clearance level of course.



XYZ Anomalies:

These are the anomalies I personally enjoy researching. XYZ Anomalies are unknown anomalies, mainly deriving from SCP-914 or starring in a canon event held by staff and/or Xyz, the head developer. XYZ Anomalies have no official SCP Classification, hence the custom classification they are given. These anomalies are custom to the server so when you're researching the anomalies you truly never know what is going to happen as you can't just go onto the SCP wiki and look at its document, which is very thrilling and exciting. These scream the reason why this server is unique and why you will have the best experience while working in Research.

Dealing with Unknown Anomalies
As a researcher, you're not fit to deal with containing anomalies as you're just a nerd with a lab coat and a shank-like pencil. So when you see an unknown anomaly causing a ruckus in the 914 room or another location, scream in the radio and run in the opposite direction, this technique may save your life one day. Once you get to a safe location inform on the radio (using /f) to tell SID that there is an unknown anomaly in [insert location here]. SID will then attempt what may be hours of trying to contain the anomaly. However, once a leader steps in and saves the day, you should make an anomaly log on the unknown anomaly. Make sure you be as descriptive as possible when describing it as it will be useful later on, also make sure that the number you are classifying it as is in the correct order (so if the most recent anomaly is XYZ-043 make sure you make yours XYZ-044). You logging the anomaly will likely increase your chances in testing on it, but that may not always be true.

So SID contained it and you logged it. You've done testing on it in the LCZ Testing Chambers and you've done all you could currently think of. Now what? Well, now it either gets moved to the vault or destroyed (It is usually destroyed if it's a 914 anomaly and it is known what outputs it). Which leads me to my next topic.



The Vault:

The vault is a sanctuary for all 914 and XYZ anomalies alike, where they are stored in lockers or humanoid chambers and tested on. This currently is its second rebuild as the first one was caved in due to certain circumstances, the current one is much larger than the first one so a benefit was received at least. If you are a standard Senior Researcher, you are able to access the entrance to the vault and only able to be in the foyer of the vault as you can't access the other doors. The vault also has its special security, Vault Security. These are level 3 personnel (mainly SID, and Gensec SOC) who signed up to take the role of Vault Sec. They maintain the vault and take care of the anomalies that need to be taken care of, like feeding and whatnot. If you are doing testing in the vault they will likely be there.

Some Researchers get full access to the vault and its anomalies and if you become one of these researchers, great job, a whole new path of experiences has opened up for you. But heed my warning, some of the anomalies we have in the vault are very dangerous and can lead to catastrophes on the facility and you will be blamed for it, speaking from experience here. Just be careful and think about what you're doing before you do anything as they aren't called unknown anomalies for anything.



Testing on SCPs:

The main gig here in the Research Branch is testing. It's what gets stuff done here. Though you can't just go up to a Keter SCP and do testing on it, we have procedures and requirements here at Area-XYZ, these should be followed and ordered strictly as they are there for reason. For example, if you want to do testing on SCP-682, you will need to follow the requirements which are linked here.

There is something important that needs to be addressed, RP Mods. RP Mods are staff members (usually Trusted Admins+) that basically moderate your test and give you a correct outcome based on the lore of the anomaly and server. So when you're doing testing, make sure to have an RP Mod so you can get an accurate test rather than you doing a /me that says: "682 dies from being mushed into a pulp by a hydraulic press", this is not accurate as this would not happen, thus why we have RP Mods to give you an accurate outcome on what pressing a hydraulic press does to 682.

Here's a step-by-step process on preparing for a test on SCP-682, this also applies to all other SCPs:

  1. Get approval from a Research Supervisor+, this can be done by either using the test requests document or going to a supervisor or the HR directly and informing them of your idea.
  2. Get an RP Mod. (Suggested you notify one 5-10 minutes before you conduct your test)
  3. If it gets approved, gather four personnel, these personnel must consist of SID and MTF. Two of these personnel must be heavies, so either two SID Heavies, two MTF Armored Units, or both. You can have more than four personnel, this is just the mandatory requirement.
  4. Have SCP-999 at 682's CC, I recommend having it outside 682's CC.
  5. Now you're ready to begin testing! Take notes and be careful and make sure you log it after!

Doctrines:

A doctrine is a field of science that you may freely choose for your character to have a degree in. The doctrine roster is how we know what field your researcher excels at since it is what he/she has a degree in. This makes it easier for us to assign researchers to specific tests and projects that they specialize in for an in-depth analysis. If you do a test based on what you have a degree in, you're likely to get more detailed responses from RP Mods.

Biology- the natural science that studies life and living organisms, including their physical structure, chemical processes, molecular interactions, physiological mechanisms, development, and evolution. An example of biology being used on the server would be researching what SCP-939 evolved from or closely relates to.

Chemistry- the scientific discipline involved with elements and compounds composed of atoms, molecules, and ions: their composition, structure, properties, behavior and the changes they undergo during a reaction with other substances. An example of chemistry being used on the server would be looking at the unknown molecular components of SCP-096's blood

Biochemistry- the branch of science concerned with the chemical and physicochemical processes and substances that occur within living organisms. An example of this being used on the server would be researching how 682 regenerates its flesh and whatnot.

Physics- the natural science that studies matter, its motion and behavior through space and time, and that studies the related entities of energy and force. Physics is one of the most fundamental scientific disciplines, and its main goal is to understand how the universe behaves. This would be used on the server in explaining how SCP-106's PD works as it conflicts with space and time (kinda). Could also be used in determining the number of force SCP-076-2 has in breaking downs doors.

Botany- the science of plant life and a branch of biology. Can be used when researching SCP-550.

Medicine- the science and practice of establishing the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. This is used when finding a cure with XYZ-009.


Neuroscience- is a multidisciplinary science that is concerned with the study of the structure and function of the nervous system. Could probably be used when working on SCP-426.

Mechanical- is the discipline that applies engineering, physics, engineering mathematics, and materials science principles to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems. This field would be used when working on robotics like SCP-1370.

Linguistics- the scientific study of language and its structure, including the study of morphology, syntax, phonetics, and semantics. Basically can be used when translated unknown languages that anomalies speak in.

Material Science- is an interdisciplinary field involving the properties of matter and its applications to various areas of science and engineering. It includes elements of applied physics and chemistry, as well as chemical, mechanical, civil and electrical engineering. You would probably deal with what people with physics, mechanical, and chemistry doctrines deal with.

Geology- the science that deals with the earth's physical structure and substance, its history, and the processes that act on it. You'd be dealing with anomalous rocks, like XYZ-021.

Formal Sciences- is an area of study that uses formal systems to generate knowledge such as in Mathematics and Computer Science. You will be dealing with computerized/digital anomalies, like SCP-079.

Choose what doctrine you specialize in wisely, because it will affect you in the future.


Research Meetings:

As a Researcher, you are expected to make it to meetings, which are at 7:30PM EST / 4:30PM PST every Friday. If you can't make it to a meeting, post your absences here, this is more for the Seniors+ as it is important you are at the meetings. In Research Meetings, we discuss the happenings in Research, promote and demote researchers, addressing issues within Research, and other topics that you don't want to miss out on.
Showing up to Research Meetings shows your dedication and care about the branch, so coming to meetings increases your chances of getting promoted. Going to meetings is also the perfect time to converse with your higher-ups and get to know them better.

As of now, research meetings do not occur as Weekly Research Reports have taken place of it.


_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Here at the Research Branch in Area-XYZ, we're all family, we need to look out for one another as Area-XYZ is a hellscape that we have to work in. Be competent, stay imaginative, uphold your leadership and trust, and you'll be the best researcher you can be.

Secure. Contain. Protect.

Secure. Contain. Protect.


Let me know if I need to edit or add anything, I'll be keeping this updated.
To add something very quickly, if you ever have a question about something regarding the server or the general etiquette that comes with being a researcher, do not feel like you can't ask your higher ups. Most of us really do care about you and your tests, and will always be willing to help you out if you need some assistance. We maintain a certain degree of professionalism ICly, which can throw of newer players who don't know what's going on, but believe it or not we're actually real people who were once new to the Research Division and the server as a whole. Patriot is constantly looking out for researchers, as is Pownage and myself. If you're still in doubt, ask a Senior or someone with a bunch of experience in the branch, like Soles or any number of other researchers. Feel free to poke any of us on Teamspeak, PM us on the forums, or just talk to us on the server if you have any questions.
