DETAILS



OVERVIEW


No Return is the canon that follows on the heels of SCP-6500: Inevitable, but you already knew that right? This canon is concerned with consequences first and foremost; when we were writing SCP-6500 it became clear that whichever timeline the reader chose, the concept of the Foundation was going to be irrevocably changed. Which is fitting, as Inevitable is a pretty stark climate change allegory. We wanted to create a setting in which would foster further stories, leading off from either timeline.

So, what is No Return? It’s life after the tipping point, along two very different causal paths. One where the Foundation maintains its iron grip on the anomalous world, but those in the know are aware SCP-6500 was the SCPF’s fault and another in which the Foundation dissolves, forming a new organization with various groups of interest (read Emissary!) to try to educate the public about the anomalous world.
