A ring of alchemy? Neat.

It looks like a D&D item. Downvoting.
That is literally the shittiest reason to downvote an article ever.
I don't know about this one. It is interesting, but it seems too powerful.
I've done a major rewrite on this one since it's headed for the chopping block. I kept the basic concept, but i've added the detail that the ring draws on the environment for its energy source. This is my first crack at one of these, so let me know if it's an improvement.
A lot of people use Dr. Inserts… but Dr. Smapti does not sound like a name at all. It sounds like something cribbed from the Daily Show.
Seems like something that would exist in comparison to other SCPs. Perhaps more of a downside would make it seem less ridiculously useful. Similar SCPs make up for usefulness by having random/uncontrollable properties.
Could definitely be a Keter class weapon if it were brought next to, say, the sun? Or SCP-123, or the other black hole that I can't remember the number for (if a black-hole is in fact just a singularity of energy)?
Yeh, there's no way this one's anything remotely approaching keter.
So I removed the reference to it. I assume it existed once but was removed. For reference, what was it?
… Why is this positively upvoted?

I don't get why bringing someone back to life was so costly.
Reassemble the body, repair damaged tissues, apply movement to the heart and lungs, and there you have it.
Your dead because your brain gets damaged.
Not mine. They're dead?

Look for yourself. There, dead.
There, dead. Their dead? They're dead.
…I think I just hurt myself.
The idea I had when I re-wrote this SCP was that it chemically alters the subject at the molecular level, which would require a massive amount of energy for anything beyond the simplest of tasks. That's why the previous owner of it got himself killed - he was attempting what seemed to him to be a simple thing like "turning lead into gold", not realizing that the energy required to do so would kill him. Similarly, bringing a dead corpse back to life would require re-writing millions of dead cells into a living state, which causes whatever unspeakably redacted event that it did.
