Additional Information

Site-CN-71 can be said to be the Site with the longest history in the entire Chinese Branch. Its establishment far precedes the establishment of the Chinese Branch itself.

At the end of the 18th century, the hands of the British Empire began to reach for the lands of East Asia. When the British established large-scale intercontinental trade with the Qing Dynasty, one of the precursors of the Foundation, Her Majesty's Foundation for the Secure Containment of the Paranormal, brought the Queen's grace to this part of the Asian continent, and attempted to introduce their knowledge of the anomalous to what was thought to be a "virgin land".

But their efforts were stopped from the beginning by the Abnormality Institute, the paranormal organization of dynastic China, which had the support of generations of elites and even the highest ranking officials of the Chinese. Their history far predated the Qing dynasty that ruled China at the time, and although their power had declined by the Qing dynasty, the Institute was the most powerful paranormal organization in China. The HMFSCP had to wait for an opportunity — but they didn't have to wait long.

In 1842, the Opium Wars broke open the gates of China. The Qing Dynasty conceded to the British in the first of many unequal treaties, and began what is now known in China as the Century of Humiliation. At the same time, the HMFSCP gained the opportunity to set up operations in China. They set up their first base of operations in the Far East on Hong Kong Island, which they had taken from the Chinese in the treaty, and used it as a point of transfer for anomalous items seized from China and brought to the British Isles, or to one of their many colonies. Soon after, they set up similar transfer sites in the concessions of Guangzhou, Beijing, and Shanghai.

Regardless of this, because of the limited size of Hong Kong Island, the transfer site had difficulties processing the volume of anomalous items being exported out through it; in addition, it suffered attacks from the Abnormality Institute and other Groups of Interest active in China. That all changed in 1898, when the British obtained the New Territories. The New Territories was a large area, with many mountainous regions suitable for setting up a permanent Site. Under the guise of construction works for the Kowloon-Canton Railway, the reorganized SCP Foundation excavated a large facility under Beacon Hill2 based on a proposal by Dr. Sherlock Howard. This facility would take over the role of transfer site from the Hong Kong Island site. This site would come to be designated Site-906, and would later become Sector C of Site-CN-71.

Although the altitude and distance from the ports slightly increased the cost of transport compared to the old transfer site, Site-906's location on the inside of a mountain made it one of the most secure and secluded in the Far East. For the Foundation, whose containment efforts in the Far East had been troubled by unknown causes, Site-906, located in a British possession, was their greatest asset on the Asian continent, where many SCP objects retrieved from the mainland were taken for research and sent by sea to other Sites as required.

At the end of 1941, Imperial Japan took control of Hong Kong, and within a month were the new rulers of the this island. Site-906 also faced attacks from the Japanese; after holding out for half a month, it fell to a poison gas attack, and Dr. Howard and 108 other personnel defending the Site were killed3. In 1945, after Japan's surrender, Site-906 once again returned to the Foundation's control. Based on leftover documents retrieved from the occupied Site, the Japanese had given the Site to "Unit Negative Numbers", and was used as a research facility.

On 5 January 1946, the Foundation once again activated Site-906. As the Republic of China had taken back all concessions after the end of the World War II, the Foundation lost all their sites in China save for Site-906. In the following 40 years, the Foundation used diplomatic relations with the Republic of China — and later, the People's Republic of China — to once again set up Sites in the Chinese mainland4. At the same time, Site-906 underwent two large expansions, once in 1948 when a larger area was excavated (now Sectors D and E) to contain more anomalies transferred out of Mainland China as a result of the Chinese Civil War, as well as increasing defenses in anticipation of a possible attack from Communist forces; and once in 1978 when the Site was expanded with further living facilities (now Sector B) and coverup facilities (now Sector A)5, the latter in response to demand for development in the Beacon Hill region.

In 1984, the United Kingdom and the People's Republic of China signed the Sino-British Joint Declaration, returning Hong Kong to China. At the same time, the Foundation and the Chinese government secretly signed [REDACTED], in which one of the stipulations was "to transfer the management rights of Site-906, currently under the Main Foundation, to the Chinese Branch." This went into effect alongside the handover of 1 July 1997, at which point Site-906 was removed from the main database of the Foundation and renamed Site-CN-71. The former vice director of Site-CN-21, Lam Jun-kit, replaced Site-906's director, Lockhart Patten, as site director.

The current Site-CN-71 is one of the largest sites of the Chinese Branch. Due to its unique position as a former transfer site, many of the objects contained here are portable, low-risk Safe or Euclid-class SCPs. In addition, the high-class residences used to cover up its existence also lend well to housing personnel from the Main Foundation or other branches. With the discovery of the Hong Kong and Hong Shing-based Group of Interest "St. Christina College" in 1992, as well as the beginning of public involvement in the Location of Interest "Hong Shing" in 2010, the Foundation's Chinese branch has put in plenty of funds and personnel into Site-CN-71's security and research capabilities, including Mobile Task Forces such as MTF-Beta-10 ("Frigidity"), the construction of an electronics containment zone and the Internet Security Department, and a further plan to expand the Site's area in Q4 of 2017.
