Amazing! Co. Star Marbles





Registered Phenomena Code: RPC-184

Object Class: Alpha-Yellow Alpha-Black

Hazard Types: Grouped Hazard, Ballistic Hazard, Transmutable Hazard, Extreme Temperatures, Gravitational Hazard, Info Hazard.

Containment Procedures:
Instances of RPC-184 are to be stored within standard Alpha secure containers until testing. Any damage to RPC-184-1 is to be reported to Site-054. Motion sensors in the containment area are to be monitored by assigned personnel in shifts of 4 hours, and cycled accordingly. Inspection of motion sensors must occur every 90 days. Motion sensors must be replaced every 180 days. Damage, malfunction, or other issues are to be immediately reported to Site-054 Director Klaus ███████.

In event of a containment breach, Site-054 is to be locked down and local ASF units in heavy protective gear are to verify that RPC-184-2 has ceased motion. Upon verification that RPC-184-2 has ceased movement, RPC-184-2 fragments are to be destroyed by manner of caustic spray consisting mainly of sulfuric acid.

Instances of RPC-184-1 are to be kept separate from other instances of RPC-184-1. RPC-184-1 instances are not to be handled and are to be individually stored in standard Alpha secure containers. Individual containers are to be fitted with motion sensors. Monitoring of motion sensors is to be carried out by assigned personnel in shifts of 4 hours, and cycled accordingly.

In event of containment breach, Site-054 is to activate localized thermobaric charges within RPC-184's containment area. On-Site ASF units are to verify destruction of RPC-184. If multiple RPC-184-2 instances complete transformation into RPC-184-4b, an end-of-the-world scenario is to be considered likely. Due to the nature of such an event, no protocols are in place to prevent RPC-184-4b from increasing in size.

Monitoring of ██████ General Retail Stores are to be carried out by Site-054, with all instances of RPC-184 to be recalled. Any retailer questioning the recall is to be given an alibi concerning damaged marbles.
In the event of RPC-184 being purchased before proper containment can be enacted, MST X-Ray-6 ('Annulifiers’) are to locate and retrieve RPC-184. Should RPC-184-2 be handled, MST X-Ray-6 are to activate a localized thermobaric explosive device located under the ███████ General Store.


RPC-184 is divided into two four objects, identified as RPC-184-1, and RPC-184-2. RPC-184-1, RPC-184-2, RPC-184-3, and RPC-184-4. RPC-184-4 is further broken down into RPC-184-4a and RPC-184-4b.

RPC-184-1 is a plastic resealable bag containing 25-30 instances of RPC-184-2. The bag is labeled as standard Hasbro brand marbles, with large print reading “Amazing! Co. Star Marbles”. RPC-184-1 is always marked at $0.99 USD. Markings consistent with the Amazing! Co. Group of Interest are present on both sides of the bag.
The mailing information has been replaced with a disclaimer written in fine print.

RPC-184-1 has no anomalous properties unless holding instances of RPC-184-2, or if being directly viewed by sapient beings. When RPC-184-1 comes into contact with RPC-184-2, RPC-184-2 will not manifest anomalous properties and will remain inert until removed from RPC-184-1 or RPC-184-1 is damaged. RPC-184-1, when directly viewed, creates a compulsion to purchase RPC-184 consistent with Amazing! Co. products, and then open RPC-184-1 and handle RPC-184-2 irregardless of warning or knowledge of RPC-184-2’s anomalous effects. This effect is based on line of sight, and will not trigger when viewed through electronic devices or when recorded.

RPC-184-2 refers to glass marbles painted to resemble known astronomical bodies within the solar system. RPC-184-2 instances measure █ cm in diameter, weigh 5.5 grams, and correspond to a Mohs hardness rating of 5.5. When RPC-184-2 is removed from RPC-184-1, RPC-184-2 will manifest its anomalous properties. RPC-184-2 instances, when thrown or rolled, ignore friction and continue to gain speed even if contact is made with another object. RPC-184-2 will usually shatter upon reaching a speed of 30 m/s. Fragments of RPC-184-2 will then embed in soft objects and cease movement. Fragments of RPC-184-2 will then embed in soft objects, but will continue to shatter otherwise. Further breaking down of the material eventually creates a coarse powder that continues to accelerate at an exponentially increasing speed. Coming into contact with the powder via skin, or inhalation is invariably fatal due to the speed at which the particles within are moving.

RPC-184-2 instances that continue to fragment are then identified as RPC-184-3. RPC-184-3 refers to a cloud of RPC-184-2 fragments that behaves in a manner similarly to stellar nebulae. The size of RPC-184-3 instances varies based on the amount of RPC-184-2 that has progressed to this stage, and can measure between 2 cm and ██ m in diameter. RPC-184-3 instances then heat up to a temperature of 10,000° K within ██ seconds. RPC-184-3 will then form miniature T-Tauri1 stars which undergo rapid stellar evolution, quickly progressing to main-sequence2. RPC-184-3 instances that progress to this stage are identified as RPC-184-4.

RPC-184-4 measures between 0.3 and 1 cm in diameter. Temperature and luminosity of RPC-184-4 cannot be recorded due to the destructive nature of RPC-184-4, though RPC-184-4 appears to be within the A0 Stellar Class3, and has a theorized luminosity of 80 and temperature of 10,800° K. RPC-184-4 will begin nuclear fusion and continue to move erratically. RPC-184-4 quickly forms and depletes its outer layers of hydrogen, forming a core of denser materials until the star eventually collapses. RPC-184-4a refers to RPC-184-4 that undergoes a supernova4 event, quickly expelling all of its mass. RPC-184-4a is then considered neutralized with leftover superheated particles showing no anomalous movement or increase in speed. RPC-184-4b refers to an instance of RPC-184-4 that crosses its Schwartzchild Radius5 and becomes a miniature black hole. RPC-184-4b is theorized to have an event horizon of 0.000001 µm, but due to the nature of its transformation and speed this cannot be confirmed. RPC-184-4b continues to move erratically, absorbing matter over the course of 10 seconds until it ‘vaporizes’ and is considered neutralized. See Addendum 184-01 for more information.


RPC-184 was discovered on 4/25/19██ following an incident in the local ███████ General Store in ████, Mississippi, when RPC-184-1 was breached and RPC-184-2 was handled, resulting in 42 casualties and 21 deaths. MST X-Ray-6 (‘Annulifiers’) were dispatched to the location following the deaths of 2 Authority informants and the news coverage of the event. RPC-184’s latent anomalous properties were discovered after X-Ray-6-1 accidentally interacted with an instance of RPC-184-2, resulting in 2 more casualties. After visual confirmation of Amazing! Co. Group of Interest markings and confirmation of associated infohazards, MST X-Ray-6 applied memetics to the entire township of ████ and distributed standard wide-area-coverage amnestics via aerosol dispersal to the entirety of Forrest County.
