Secure. Contain. Protect.

"Good morning, and congratulations on your successful recruitment to  The Foundation. As you have all discovered or been shown, there is more to the world that we live in than the public knows. Anomalous objects, locations, and subjects are appearing with increasing frequency, and our mission of protecting the world by securing and containing them is more important than ever. Whether it's a sponge that can absorb seemingly unlimited amounts of water without gaining mass or a cult around a reality bender trying to rewrite the fabric of reality, it's our job to stop it. There are other... organizations, but their methods and ideology place us and the world in danger more often than not, so be wary. Report to your teams, get your full orientations, and try not to die in the first week."

What you get!

When you purchase this, you are getting a rules-lite tabletop RPG.
Format Size: US Letter
Length: 10 pages cover to character sheet


Take on the roles as members of the SCP Foundation in this rules-lite tabletop RPG! There's six jobs, each with a separate special skill to help them succeed in the dangerous environment of the SCP Universe!

  • The Researcher
  • The Field Agent
  • The Containment Specialist
  • The Security Officer
  • The Tactical Operative
  • The D-Class (good luck!)

As individuals or as teams, the players will have plenty to do, as the Breathless System offers a lot of flex to cover the events common and uncommon in a world where anomalies are very real.

The Engine

Based on the successful engine of Fari RPGs' amazing Breathless System, this game is made for people looking for less crunch in their SCP gaming experience.

What is the SCP Foundation?

That's a tall order that's outside the scope of a rules-lite TTRPG! The short of it is that the SCP Universe is a shared creative space with a canon-lite continuity. It skews in terms of genre towards science-fantasy mixed with horror, but can cover a lot more! That's why I picked the Breathless System as a baseline for it, to give players and GMs alike a high degree of flexibility that's in keeping with the general vibe of the universe.
