SPC-4003 - On Striking, Sharkicism, and Selechians
rating: +2+x


SPC-4003 is currently ACTIVE. GOLDEN DUKE is being held at the Shrine of the Righteous and Harmonious Fists. All Centre pugilists are to undergo mandatory visits to the Shrine biyearly.

Project #: SPC-4003

Selachian Pugnātorial Capabilities: SPC-4003's discovery has led to a better understanding of Selachian entities and the science of pugilistic potency. Pugilists exposed to SPC-4003 experience an immediate increase in pugilistic prowess, durability, stamina, and speed; regular exposure to active Marine Fighting Teams is recommended to occur every two months.

In spite of this, SPC-4003's existence has raised doubt in fundamental areas of the Centre's operation and the core aspects of the organization. Key points of confusion include:

  • The source of the Pugilist Manifesto's writings;
  • The cause of the Centre's CONTAINMENT INITIATIVE1 uprising;
  • The uncertainty over the existence of precursor Centre organizations and whether they even engaged in Selachian pugilism;
  • The rumoured love affair between Centre High Pugilord Will-helm Frederick and Abyssal Sharkicist Grand Sauroid Proton.

The Order of Parapugilists is undergoing extensive deliberations in the House of Judicial Combat to verify the full extent of SPC-4003's effects on the integrity of the Centre.

Project Component(s): SPC-4003 consists of several artifacts discovered in a cave off the coast of the state of Atlantos. These artifacts include cave wall writing in the Selachiosk Pungix Combin script and a thaumaturgic weapon, the GOLDEN DUKE.

Since the cave's initial discovery in 1947, the cave writings have been deciphered and translated into the ANTI-SELACHIAN HYMN: a Centre original chant and official anthem used to motivate pugilists in the field. The text's composition was first discerned to be of the tongue of an ancient Selachian pugilistic group; extended observation reveals the text frequently shifts between dialects. While all text makes reference to the origin of pugilism, the text of some languages places the genesis of pugilism as hundreds or even thousands of years before other dialects, often with anachronistic terminology.

GOLDEN DUKE is a gauntlet weapon fist first alluded to in CICAPOCO Archives but not discovered until the acquisition of SPC-4003. The Archives state that GOLDEN DUKE could engage in autonomous pugilism without the interference of any licensed Pugilist. GOLDEN DUKE is associated with an auditory squaloidhazard2 heard only when in close vicinity of the object. The squaloidhazard manifests in the form of auditory hallucinogenic diatribes against the philosophy of Selachian Pugilism, leading to anger in almost all documented cases.

CICAPOCO claims the squaloidhazard a potential threat against the Centre, considering this level of aggression to be against the organization's Pugilist Rights protocol. The Command Office has launched an official investigation into the nature of the squaloidhazard and is locating potential parties associated with its existence.

Any conspirators are asked to turn themselves in.

Nascency Impetus: According to the Sesquipedalian Department3, GOLDEN DUKE was once used to combat the ancient Selechian menace of the Megalodon (Carcharocles megalodon). Sacred texts in CICAPOCO Archives corroborate this and posit that the Great Megalodon was pummeled into submission at the climax of the First Deviant Crusade in 1293 BCE. The archives allege that the Great Megalodon cursed the GOLDEN DUKE shortly before its death, manifesting its energies into the rogue squaloidhazard.

Deployment Record: The Sesquipedalian Department has proposed the use of Poseidon Laboratories time travel technology to discern the origin of the ANTI-SELACHIAN HYMN and GOLDEN DUKE. The Xyank-Tyson Temporal Pugil is a time travel device co-developed by Drs. Thaddy "The Daddy" Xyank and Michael Gerard Tyson.

The Sesquipedalian Department's Temporal Fighting Team PUNCH-CLOCKERS have been selected for the exploration of this project.
