Item #: RPC-024

Object Class: Alpha

Containment Protocols: RPC-024 is located within a 4 by 4 kilometres sector in the ████ region of Northern █████, Canada. The area's anomalous properties are effective up to ten (10) meters above the ground. A chain-link fence, two (2) meters high has been installed around the anomalous area. An entry is located on the north side for testing purposes. This entry is to be secured by lock and chain. After incident 024-6, barbed wire has been installed on the top of the fence. Signs stating "Trespassers will be shot, êkâ pîhtikwê" have been placed at fifteen-meter intervals along the fence. The fence is to be assessed on the first of each month for damage. Any damage discovered must first be reported to a Security Director. If any deliberate cuts are found in the fence or barbed wire, a Security Director is to arrange an Authority Security Force to carry out Lost and Found Procedure.

Description: RPC-024 is an anomalous area of the Boreal forest. First discovered by the ███ people, records of this area date back to 1200A.D. Local tribes dedicated this area Sacred grounds and banned all entry until the land was signed over in the Authority Treaty.

Aerial inspection of RPC-024 reports no variation in appearance when compared to the surrounding land, though drones will malfunction if flown past 1250 meters.

The effects and properties of RPC-024 increase as personnel progress further into the area, and as time spent in the area increases. The meter clarification included in the document are used to identify the mark at which symptoms and properties are readily occurring.

Distance Recorded Effects
50 Meters Entry into RPC-024 both within fifty (50) meters of the fence - henceforth known as Meters Inside Area (MIA) - and within ten minutes of exposure reveals normal flora, including common firs, spruce, pine, shrubs, mosses and lichens. After ten minutes of exposure standing in the same place, D-Class personnel report observing changes in the types of plants that they observe in the area, though no precise changes are directly observed. An increase in hemlock, bracken fern and monkshood are most common, though it varies for each personnel. After an extended exposure time at sub fifty (50) MIA, D - Class personnel report experiencing decreased vision, lethargy, and vertigo.
100 Meters At one hundred (100) MIA, flora is observed to range further from the local variety, and plants are reported to shift or move when not being directly observed. The previously mentioned symptoms increase in intensity.
200 Meters At two hundred (200) MIA, D-Class report observing various items littered about the forest floor, such as dead animals (largely including small rodents and invertebrates), small pieces of garbage and various household items. All items found in RPC-024 are in various stages of decomposition. Side effects at the 200 MIA include headaches and slight confusion. Item and plant samples show no anomalous properties, nor do whole items that are taken from the area.
500 Meters At five hundred (500) MIA Trees and other flora begin to move and transform genus under direct observation, with heavy hedges and vines becoming increasingly more common. Often the flora begins blocking the area through which the subject entered. Items found at five hundred MIA generally include larger items such as furniture, vehicles and other deceased animals such as canines, bovine and equestrians. At this point, the weather inside the area begins to vary from the surrounding forest. The climate is reported to range from blizzard to sweltering conditions, record temperatures including up to █ Degrees Celsius, though temperatures do not normally range until further MIA. Side effects at 500 MIA include increased confusion, diminished vision, and lethargy. Up until the 500 MIA mark, all symptoms are able to be reversed with time, the length of which depends on how long the personnel was exposed. After the 500 meter mark, effects are no longer completely reversible. Increased confusion continues to the one thousand (1000) MIA mark.
1000 Meters At 1000 MIA, the landscape will physically transform into different terrains, often tumbling downhill, and shifting into rocky scree beneath personnel's feet. Items found in this area can notably include various human bodies of all ages that are not decomposing in any way, houses, and other various buildings. Side effects at 1000 MIA include excessive confusion, vertigo, blindness, and loss of motor control. Over ten (10) minutes at 1000 MIA will result in death.

Autopsies performed determined cerebral hemorrhage to be the cause of death. At approximately one thousand two hundred and fifty (1250) MIA, the furthest explored into RPC-024, sudden death will occur. All video equipment taken to this MIA will malfunction.

Addendum:
Testing is not ongoing in RPC-024 per Global Director order.
If testing is deemed to resume, all Class D personnel entering RPC-024 are to be equipped with a live feed camera, a GPS locator, and a rope lead. No other personnel are to enter RPC-024.
