Academy of the Extraordinarily Gifted
A.E.G OOC

It is 2040. Xavier's school for the gifted, located in New York City, sadly is no more. It has been destroyed and the fabric between mutants and non mutants has reached a point of irreparable damage. With the wish for the safety of all parties involved, a new school has been erected in the vastness that is known as the Pacific Ocean, off from the Hawaiian Islands. Only accessible from boat or plane, what appears to be nothing more than a museum appears above the water. Concealed beneath is a home, a school, a base of operations for all whom have gifts viewed as abnormal or, mutant. This is the first year, the grand opening of The Academy of Extraordinarily Gifted. An invitation has been sent out to all Mutants around the world. This is one more chance for a safe refuge, a place to learn and grow together. One more chance to make the world a better place for mutants and non mutants to live in peace.

The services of the A.EG Ferry is available for picking you up from the Island and transporting you to the surface museum. From there a representative will be available to escort you down to the school. (Representative will be NPC)

r

Please read ALL of the rules as well. Most are General Role play rules that ever role player should know and adhere to. If, after you read and understand all of the information and rules we have provided here, please feel free to get in contact with one of the GMs.


Rules

All of Elliquiy's rules are in effect here. Without exceptions.

-Drama OOC and IC

- Respect the game as it is set up by the GM and do not complain about it in the OOC chat. If you have a question or concern, PM your GMs.

- If there is a problem with another player, we expect that it is dealt with in a mature, drama-free way. We are all adults here, after all. We GM's are always here, we always have an open ear, but we expect people to deal with issues on their own first.

- There will be one warning if someone causes drama. We do not want it in our game. It ruins fun for others, and if it happens, we will have to ask the person causing it to leave. If it keeps going, Elliquiy staff will be informed. We encourage our players to let the GMs know, if someone tries to stir up OOC drama.

- If there is any IC drama, do not bring it OOC. Also, do not take OOC issues IC. If it is felt that you are using your character as a vehicle for abuse, you could be asked to leave the game.

- There will be no use of OOC knowledge for IC purposes, also known as Metagaming. You will be asked to change a post.

- Respect

- Please respect your GMs and they will respect you. There are two GMs for this game, and only two, Kremsonbryar and Snickerz. Acting like you own the game, trying to throw your weight around, will only succeed in one thing; upsetting one or both of the Gms who have worked really hard to set up this game.

- Please respect your fellow players. If you do not have a players permission to do something in game that you know you should not do, don't do it. Don't get mad at players for things that happen IC. If you think someone is going against the game rules, let a GM know (we aren't mind readers) and we will handle it. Don't be mean or rude to fellow players. And please remember that RL comes first. Some people may take longer than others to respond. They have things in their real life keeping them from it and also have other games on E.

- No god moding
   
"God Moding" is in essence when someone’s character has the ability to do practically anything without limits or boundaries. And example is when they simply cannot be harmed by any and all means other RP-ers try.

-It can be killing or injuring a character without the player's express permission.
-It can be when they simply can’t be hit and dodge all attacks or anything for this matter aimed at them.
-It can also be using other characters that other people RP with. In other words, if you do not RP as
Legolas, then you cannot have Legolas say anything, or do anything, without the player's express permission.

The absolute worst is when they make out another character to be what they’re not, just to make their own character seem superior. They make others seem weak, screaming for help, when they’ve made it quite clear about their advantages and strengths. This is called power-play. It’s a strain of God-Modding, but instead of just being irritating, it’s offensive to boot.

This is a prime example of God Moding:

Player A: Punches Player B
Player B: Dodges attack, grabs Player A and throws him. Player A flies at Player B, who warps behind him and slashes Player A in the back.


- No Power Playing

Power playing occurs in role playing, and it's when you control someone else's character, as well as your own, without the other person's permission
Say that I play Bob, and someone else is Susie.

Bob watched Susie as she started to walk away. he ran up to her, the girl of his dreams, and yelled, "SUSIE, DON"T LEAVE ME!" She turned around, and glared at him, with resentment in her eyes, before walking up to him, slapping him, and then walking away again.

As you can see, if this were a post, I'd be typing Bob's actions, as well as Susie's. The fact that I'm typing Susie's actions is power playing

- Characters must be 18 years or older

- All characters must be original, player made. Though some it is acceptable to play former x-men children. Wolverine, storm, Gambit, Rogue, etc...

- Three Character's per player is the limit. However, each character must be actively played and maintained by each player. If you post as one, you post as the other. Do not post as one in the same scene twenty times and then post the other once unless there is valid reason to do so. Under certain circumstances one character could be more active than the other, but that does not mean neglect on one character is accepted.

- If you are going to include a player in your story, ask the player, do not add them without their consent. At the same time, if you would like a connection with one of the NPC we already have set in the game such as; Parents who are already claimed, Beast, Xavior etc, then you must contact a GM.

- You are asked to use correct grammar and spelling as well as to provide a minimum of two paragraphs per post. For those of you who are unaware, one paragraph consists of at least four sentences or more. People work really hard

- Please pay attention to what is happening in the game and use a bit of common sense. You must know and manage your characters limits and restrictions, at any time during the game a GM may give you an added bonus to help move the story along, in which case it should then be added to your profile for future knowledge.... An example of this would be if the school begins taking damage, if we do not already have someone available to repair the damage and/or scare away the damage such as a shark or whale, that doesn't mean that whoever wishes can all of a sudden breath under water, someone will be appointed to have that ability, based off ranking (within the game), previous skills and abilities, and activity in the group.

- To join, submit a character application using the following form to Kremsonbryar or Snickerz. Please use the Character Sheet form we have provided.

AEG O'ahu: Largest populated island, has state capital

Haha, sorry my dear, yes we would allow that... Wolverine was genetically altered with his claws, so long as you didn't go completely overboard (which I honestly don't believe you'd do) It will be original... That's what we'd like... Unique. :-) Allows for people to do more their own thing.

Awesome! Got a couple of options with her and where she came from. One is a alternate universe (my preference and I know they had them in the comics) due to the nature of her story and the fact that she was originally created for a none X-men mutant group of mine. However, I can probably twist it so she's from this world too. Whichever y'all prefer, I'll do.

*~* IMPORTANT NOTICE *~*

We do ask that you be creative, and unique... However with there being children of the original x-men allowed, we ask that you see if any of the parents are taken so that you can work something out. Those will be a first come first serve basis, and we don't want to overwhelm things.

Thus far parents taken


Storm and Nightcrawler: Parents to Jordaine and Kat played by Kremson and myself
Wolverine and Fox: Parents to Lyla played by Ember Star
Wolverine and Storm: Parents to Runa played by CurvyKitten
Gambit and Magik: Parents to Arkane played by apygoos

kckolbe Brings up a good point... We are not going to dissect your profiles, however, we would like to take a quick run through at least your powers, we may ask you to limit them or even add a second section for your weaknesses to counteract them.

Also... I don't think we stated it anywhere... At this point we do allow multiple characters, long as you can keep all of them active, and don't confuse them haha (I do that sometimes.)

My concern with later generation RPs is that you end up seeing a lot of char concepts that end up being the children of two powerful mutants that has the powers of both (but not as strong, I promise) that then immediately start learning to control both sets of powers to an amazing degree.

Basically, since this is freeform, will there be anyone keeping characters somewhat balanced?  It's amazingly frustrating to join a game and then another player joins that seems to be able to do everything your char can and more.

Yes, Kremson and I will be keeping an eye on that... We're both against the aspect of god moding... And I'm not a huge fan of super heros (all mighty and completely unstoppable)
Everyone should have limitations... If it comes down to needing to add weaknesses to counteract the abilities we will work on making that happen. We don't want people to try and outdo anyone else. This is for fun, but nobody has fun at the bottom of the heap.

haha, well I'm glad I was able to answer your question... Your parents can be brought in as NPC, so they can still pop into your life once in a while, because you are the first to claim them they are yours to decide what is done with them, where they are, jobs whatever. If someone wishes to share a parent with you, we will not approve it unless you do. As for the powers I think they look just fine. Just don't over do things and remember that you will want permission from the character before you hypnotize them. Keeping them in the loop will help make you look better. ;)

As soon as you settle on a name please let me know so that I can put it into the thread as claimed. :-)

his hypnotic charm is something he wont have total control over, the way i envision it, he historically thus far has only really used it to stress safety concerns, or, be an attractive flirty man. Thanks to the soul sword, his  abilities and whatnot, while they can be extensive, he reserves it to more hand to hand combat/tarot card flinging. The sort of inspiration for the character is actually League of Legends' very own card master, Twisted Fate, just have the Xmen parents to pull it off, hehe. more infusing magic into the cards than kinetic energy.

This is kind of what I mean.  You have 4 separate powers, none of which really go together.  Even the inspiration for your character only had half of those powers, with one of them very limited (only teleporting to enemies).

Trusting people to be smart is important with role play, otherwise it sucks all the fun out of it. If for some reason Mr Apygoos gets out of hand he will certainly get his hand slapped. Kremson and I did just leave a role play and started our own because people were treating the role play like military boot camp, we do not wish to do that with our role play and therefore will not.
