Canon Overview


There are a lot of ways to describe what F120A is actually about. "The modern-fantasy canon." "That canon about Fae and Children of the Night." "The canon in which the Foundation is trying to be good." "The canon about Site-120." And, in a sense, all of them are right. If I had to describe it with one sentence, though, it would be this: "An attempt to create a main canon (not the main canon; just a very large canon that encompasses a lot of elements and other canons, series, characters, and articles) in which the Foundation realizes it must adapt its ways to the often-changing world of magic around itself, and it must either change, or become obsolete."

For years, "morally gray" was the dominant mindset of the Foundation — but with discoveries of the world's true nature, this had to change.

With Esterberg's accidental destruction and the Third Great Diaspora before it, the SCP Foundation realized it can't stay that way for much longer — the anomalous world is near a critical point of no return, where the only option will be an all-out war on all-fronts-anomalous. And it's certain the hateful gods of the Fae Empire would like to use this potential conflict to bring Earth under their dominion once more. To avoid the worst possible scenario, the Foundation has to change its approach towards the anomalous.

With the help of the oddball Site-120, other Groups of Interest, and the people of Esterberg themselves, the Foundation must try to better itself. It will take a long time, but only time and cooperation can heal these scars. It can no longer afford to be just a prison, containing the numerous horrors leftover by the dissolving of the Fae Empire millennia ago, because an uncotrolled outbreak would destroy reality as we know it.

This canon is about that — the Foundation coming to terms with its ways being outdated in the modern world. It's about the Foundation trying to better itself through cooperation, magic, and acceptance. It's about the anomalous coming to terms with accepting reality and working towards making itself fit within our ever-changing society. It's about the anomalous affecting our world and said world changing around us. It's about the people the Foundation employs realizing they don't have to stay silent, and making a change. It's about these people having their own lives worth living. It's about magic, horrible gods, ancient wars, and the past that the Three Diasporas were not being dealt with just yet. And it's about the Foundation finally realizing it's been wrong for a long, long time.


Site-120


Site-120 is the most important part of the Foundation's plan to change — as one of few Sites actively encouraging the usage of the anomalous and the main observation center for Esterberg, it's where most of the action happens. Seemingly in the center of all of this, Site-120 has almost no time to breathe — there's always something on the horizon — one more place to explore, one more life to save, and one more anomaly to study.

Most importantly though, Site-120 is magical — metaphorically and literally. With a majority of its personnel either using magic or being anomalous themselves, life in it never seems to be normal. But even then, its people try — living their own lives worth describing, meeting each other on a regular basis, trying to make sense of the chaotic world around themselves. They try, because they know that they are the only thing stopping all-out pandemonium, they try, because they need to, but most importantly, they try, because they deeply care about the anomalous that surrounds them.

Site-120 is much different than other Foundation Sites — it's not cold. It cares for its people and it acts as their home. It doesn't stand by idly as bad things happen, because it can't stand seeing people it cares for hurt.

For more in-depth information regarding Site-120, refer to its dossier.


Esterberg


Imagine that one magical and crowded as hell market you visited when you were a kid. Even if there were so many people there, it was filled with magic, and you wanted to be there, because it somehow felt exciting, almost, exciting due to its magic. Apply that logic to a large city located in a pocket dimension, filled with hundreds of years of the untold history of the anomalous — and you've got Esterberg.

Esterberg is, first and foremost, a city. A Free Port, to be exact. Just like Site-120, even if the bigger picture still exists, it's at its very core filled with humans. Well, not exactly. Housing humans, Children of the Night, Fae, and whichever anomalous races hide themselves in its pocket dimension, Esterberg is also about the people in it. They live their lives in one of its many districts, doing their jobs whilst finally being able to express their anomalies without the world judging them for it.

The most important part of Esterberg is the fact it's magical. No, really. It's a weird fantasy-like city that is meant to inspire wonder, as the safe space for everything weird contrasting the gray realities of Poland. When everything around it is bleak, even normal people aware of the anomalous seem to want to live there — be it anartists, activists, thaumaturgists or just regular normal humans wanting to be a part of this fantasy too.

For more in-depth information regarding Esterberg, refer to SCP-5373.


The Outside World and the Multiverse


map2.png

The map of the closest alternate universes to From 120's Archives (TL-1911); the Metafoundation multiverse.

Naturally, the world doesn't only revolve around Site-120 and Esterberg. Somewhere out there, the scattered ruins of the horrible Fae Empire lay, hidden throughout the world to most, but still active, binding its time until its leader may return. The outside world of F120A mainly focuses on the interactions of previously known locations with the ancient horrors of the Great Diasporas and Esterberg's fall, the fallout of the events, and the people it wronged.

Beyond baseline reality, however, the Multiversal Compass lies. A collection of all realities to ever exist, it accounts for all possible outcomes whenever a choice gets made, splitting the world into two separate timelines. The further away from a universe a reality is, the harder it is to get to it, and the more it differs. Theoretically, somewhere out there, a world where everything has gone perfectly exists. But so does a world where everything went horribly wrong. With a near infinity of possibilities, the only limit is your technology and sanity. The Foundation did not dare to enter this multiverse of chaos in search for a better future. Not yet, at least.

For more in-depth information regarding the Multiversal Compass, refer to SCP-6172.
