Re-imagined
Re-Create your favorite Marvel Hero (or Villain) Your Way
(Or create your own!)

First... this is long! But hopefully it will cover all the bases. Please read it all if you are interested.
Basic Game Info List - based on Moraline's outline for games!
Game: X-Men Reimagined
   
  • Game Section: Most likely this will go in NC-Exotic due to possible not-quite-human mutants and the like.
  • Who is the RP open to? This game is open to all sexualities, genders, and players of whatever type they wish.
  • Setting - Modern, slightly futuristic in an upper level high school/college based school
  • Plot Basics - This is a reimagining of Xavier's original school and class of mutants, brought forward to the year 2020. Mutants are still rare in number but some are well known in the world by now - think the Avengers on a much smaller scale. What you know from the comics hasn't happened -assume nothing. This is a fresh retelling of the X-Men and Mutant story with strong ties to the Movieverse and comics
  • Character creation info/guidelines: See below  for details, we'll be using a basic FASERIP style character sheet (Trust me it is easy and we can even do it for you! This is not a system game, we just like defined characters when powers are involved). All characters will be mutants or humans, non-mutants can be adapted to fit in. 
  • Required Resources: None! Everything you need is right here.
  • Game Pacing: This will vary by each thread and its participants. A minimum of once a week is expected, more often preferred.
  • How much sexual activity is likely to occur or expected, if any?   As much as each person wants. This game will be social. It is about day to day life at a school for mutants. Ideally there will be at more random chatter, banter, and friend making as there will be sex. But hey, feel free to write as much smut as you wish. This is mostly player driven so I imagine we'll see both extremes.
  • Whether tagging will be used or not: A basic character tag will be created and given to the players to use.
Game Master Info / GM(s) Participation Level (If/where applicable)
  • Will there be a Co-GM? Quite possibly depending on how many people we get.
  • How guided will the play be(sandbox, directed etc)? This game will be very sandbox with a side of plot. Players will be free to interact with eachother as they wish and there will be NPCs available as well. Plotlines will be run but will be fully optional.
  • What extent will players be allowed to create/use environment or setting details? Players will be able to affect the environment within the limitations for their characters, but anything major needs to go through a GM.
  • How NPC's will be handled. (If any) - (By GM and/or players, and what expectations): Basic NPCs can be created/used at any time but anything major should go through a GM. You can feel free to play in the sandbox wide enough to go rob a bank if you want... but we'll be the  ones running that once you get there :)
  • How active will the GM be?  Very active! I'm here every day.
  • Will there be an OOC thread? Yes! Ideally two: One for important announcements and one for random chatter.
  • How to contact/approach GM with questions? If it is something that everyone could benefit from please use the OOC thread, otherwise feel free to PM me.
  • How will decisions be resolved?  We value contributions from everyone and no opinion will be outright dismissed, but GMs have the final say, always.
  • Will PvP be allowed (if applicable)? Yes! We are giving players plenty of freedom... however character death won't happen unless agreed upon or through major plot (and will have plenty of warnings before it gets there). Also, remember there are always bigger fish in the pond with many ways of knowing things you want to remain hidden. Think twice before antagonizing your playmates (unless you have some awesome ideas, then work with the GM!)
Additional:
  • Please remember to always respect other's "Offs" (And "Ons!")
  • Everyone is expected to post at least once a week. If you're having any sort of trouble just let us know! We can skip over you or move you to inactive. People will not be penalized for missing this deadline unless it becomes a problem for other players.
  • Can I join the game after it has already started? ABSOLUTELY! It's a school, and new mutants are discovered all the time. Mid-semester transfers are fully accepted.
  • Expected Writing Style: All writing will be done in 3rd person. We won't nitpick, but we expect at least halfway grammar and spelling.   
WHEW! Ready for the real stuff? Read below!


The year is 2020. Everything you've read. Everything you seen. Everything you know about mutants is wrong. Or it hasn't happened yet. Or didn't happen... quite as you may think.

For most of history superpowered beings and mutants have been the stuff of myth and legends. Heard about but never verified. That is, at least, until one came to the forefront of the public eye. In 1920 a hero was born, though it wasn't until 1941 that his true powers were given to him and Captain America came to the forefront of the American people. He was the world's first exposure to Superpowers, technology finally advancing to the point where his feats could be shared through photos and movies. Other, lesser known heroes such as Wolverine cropped up, minorly influencing world events but for the most part Mutants and their like remained the stuff of imagination. There were occasional sightings, occasional 'events' that were quickly covered up, but these were extremely rare. What few mutants there were generally remained hidden after seeing what happened to the few who did make a splash. They were few and far between and rarely did one Mutant every meet another.

That is, at least, until the mid 2000's. At first there was just a few, but significantly more than in the past, they seemed to spring up all at once. Charles Xavier, a world class telepath of remarkable ability, was the first to notice the increase thanks to his powers and technology. He reached out to the ones he could find and found them before they could cause trouble and he gathered them together. Xavier taught them to use their powers and acted as their moral compass and eventually this small team became known as the X-Men. They made occasional headlines as they helped to defeat minor threats, but their identities were never revealed and they were never found by the government or general populace. The public has become more aware of Mutants, and they have continued spreading but are still one in a million. Some hide amongst the populace, some hide underground, others attempt to use their powers for good or evil.

But as the numbers of Mutants continue to grow, Xavier has decided to step in again and has begun contacting more Mutants, often just as their powers first manifest. He offers them a place amongst others like themselves, where they can learn to control their powers while still leading a normal(ish) life. This is the story of those mutants who have decided to attend Xavier's School for Gifted Children. Unbeknownst to even the great telepath, someone else has started collecting Mutants as well, and his goals aren't quite so magnanimous. 

So What Kind of Game is This?
X-Men Re-imagined will be a sandbox game with plot. This means there is an emphasis social interactions with other players and you are encouraged to make your own schemes and plots. This doesn't mean you run off and create teams of badguys to decimate and loot, but rather you can explore the world, interact with other people nearly anywhere within the limits of your character(s). There will be storylines and plot added in, but they will generally be fully optional to participate in.

So! What are we looking for?
We're looking for both Canons and Original Characters. This world is brand new - nothing from the comics is sacred other than what has already been mentioned. This is your chance to play 'What If'. What if Emma Frost was a fresh faced 18 year old under the tutelage of Charles Xavier? What if Jubilee was one of the initial X-Men and was now the teacher? What if Jean Grey was actually... John Grey? You are free to modify, reinvent, and reimagine your favorite X-Men. BUT they must still, at their core, be the same character. Keep the same powersets, keep the same basic personality, but feel free to alter age, gender, or history within reason. This isn't the chance to go hogwild, if someone encountering your character has no clue who it is, it will not be accepted - but this is your chance to recreate a Marvel character your way. Characters can be brand new to the school this year or they can have been at the school for a while.[/s]
  • Students: Mutant powers in this world start to manifest towards the end of puberty. This means all characters are conveniently 16+ and students may range into their mid 20s. Xavier's School serves high school through college courses. Students may simply be looking for a safe place learn among their own kind, or they may be trying to become the next generation of the X-Men. Training is certainly provided for all scenarios... Do you have what it takes to lead your own squad?
  • Teachers: Teachers can be nearly any age. They can be one of Xavier's original X-Men or simply an older mutant who has remained hidden until Xavier found them and invited them to come teach.
  • Staff: This would be any adult or teenager at the school who is not there for schooling. Mutant arborist/gardener? Non-mutant 18 year old janitor (have a good reason!)?
  • Other: Got ideas? Ask! But remember... our story is about the Mutants at Xavier's. A Morlock would be very lonely skulking around underground off in the city.
How Many Characters Can I Play?
Two! And you can add a third after two weeks if you've shown that you can actively maintain the first two. Since this game is mostly about the students, no more than one of them can be a Teacher/Staff member unless you have super duper awesome bios or fantastic reasons. I may also allow people to create NPCs for GM use or adoption based on their favorite Marvel characters.

Can I Make a Villain?
No! Or at least, not really. This isn't a Player Versus Player game. Can you make someone just who would never qualify as a hero? Yes. Can conflict arise between characters? Absolutely. But no serial killers, murderers or the like. No Brotherhood or similar members either. Basically you can do what you want - but this game takes place at Xavier's school for the most part. Do something that would get you kicked out would probably make the game a lonely place for you. Luckily this Xavier doesn't snoop too much (or so it seems), so you don't necessarily have to play a 'good' character, you just have to find a way to fit in. Rivalries (or outright hatred!) is encouraged. Frenemies are the best!

Canon Characters
You may 'claim' a Canon character you wish to create and you then have one week to submit a workable character sheet to me. After this week the character goes up for grabs to anyone else who might want it.
Additionally: If you are playing a highly sought after Canon character and you go inactive for weeks without telling me it may be put up for adoption.

Character Sheet
First of all: Don't be intimidated by the character sheet. There's a decent bit that goes into it, but in the end it will make for a much more well-rounded character. Especially don't be intimidated by any of the required Stats. There are no rolls in this game, there is no knowledge of any gaming systems required, and these are not finite limitations. They are simply there so we have well defined characters and they help us create more dynamic bios. They also give us a very awesome and clearcut way to grow characters! Feel free to only fill out the basic info and I will help you with the rest! Seriously! If you send me an awesome concept,  I will make it work for you.

Background Info/Timeline:
Throughout much of recent history there's been rumors of weird people/mutants here and there, but not much in the way of anything confirmed, and things have a habit of.. disappearing. There has been the occasional mess, such as a mutant out of control, or a helpless non-human looking one being attacked, etc. but they usually end up covered up as something.

Timeline:
1941 - Captain America comes to the limelight, source of his powers never mentioned, later assumed mutant
1980-2000 - Mutant sightings/rumors rise, but things are still very quickly covered up
2006-2011 - Xavier gathers his first team, the original X-Men (Members: NPCs TBD) and trains them as Mutants become more common
2011-2015 - More visible mutants come to light, usually alone and letting power go to their heads. The X-Men are seen publicly and help take care of these problems as they arise, nobody seems to know where they're from. Rumors of the Brotherhood emerge.
2015-Current - As more Mutants come to light (though still very rare, one in a million), Xavier begins actively seeking out as many mutants as he can for the school, wanting to hone them, teach them to control their powers, and instill a sense of morality before they end  up trying to use their powers for evil.

What Does the School Teach?
In short... most everything one way or another.
High School: Teachers are on hand for high school classes, generally a teacher per 'grade' will cover all the basics with some extra standins occasionally.
College: It varies - A mix of online courses, individual/small class instruction. Some teachers are at the school 24/7, others come into a couple times a week from town.
All teachers are, of course, fully vetted by Xavier. Funny how safe that makes things. :) Tutors and specialized instruction are provided as needed. All 'tuition' is free.

So interested in this! Mind if I hold down She-Hulk? No possibility for a second character as of yet.

So interested in this! Mind if I hold down She-Hulk? No possibility for a second character as of yet.

Sure thing! Just be sure she's adapted slightly for the setting, such as a younger version as a student, or as a teacher, etc. Just make sure to adjust skill/power levels as appropriate for her level of experience in this new timeline.

Also with no Hulk in sight at the moment, her origin may simply be a typical Mutant if that works for you :)

I will tweak her age and her history a bit to fit in with the setting. I could possibly give her a different origin story. I will think on that. Don't worry I'll make her to scale her properly! If there is anything else I should keep in mind, let me know. If not the I can have a C/S up soon!

EDIT: Amelita, you are going to jump in on this also? *Squee* So awesome!

Also, this goes for most everyone: Just one thing to remember is, particularly for most students, this is all pretty new to them. Mutants are pretty unknown, there's no military training organizations, etc :) So keep that in mind when making believable people who suddenly just got some powers, though they may have training if they've been at the school for a few years, etc.  Think of this like the very beginning of it all!

We'll be kicking off the first threads as the start of a fresh new school year so you can be a returning student/teacher or a brand new one.

Alsoalso, yay for everyone else who is expressing interest as well. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Oh and just to put it out there, I will be bringing in 2 PCs of my own:
Marcel St. Croix (a gender bent version of the lovely Monet)
and Daken (so if someone is thinking of picking up Wolverine, please shoot me a PM!)

After speaking with Orange Marmalade, I'm claiming Wolverine - female.

Don't worry.  You still have my character who is most emphatically male.

Could always be an X-23 male floating around to offset the female Wolverine. 

That said I'm still thinking.

Club Memberships or Sponsorships:

STATS:
Fighting: 4- Agility: 5 - Strength:8 - Endurance: 8 - Reason: 4 - Intuition: 3 - Psyche: 6

POWERS:
SUPERIOR STRENGTH, DURABILITY, AND ENDURANCE- She-Hulk's strength,durability, and endurance is on a far superior level. She is able to hold her own easily against other beings with superior strength for a long while. Though already powerful, She-Hulk has yet to determine how strong she really is.
HEALING FACTOR - She-hulk possesses a great healing factor. She is able to mend cuts and scrapes in minutes, while cracked, splintered, or broken bones take upwards to a few hours to heal completely.

ADVANTAGES:
High Alcohol Tolerance - While in She-Hulk form, her body's metabolism increases exponentially, thus making her incapable of intoxication unless she drinks an almost obscene amount of alcohol. Needless to say, this makes her the ultimate party girl.
Optimistic - Jennifer is surprisingly optimistic despite the hand life has dealt her. She always tries to find the best in people or in sticky situations.
Studious- Jennifer takes her studies very seriously. When she is not in class or the weight room, she could be found studying in the library.

DISADVANTAGES:
Personality Disorder - Jennifer has two distinct personalities in her human and She-Hulk form. While as a human she tends to be shy and introverted, as She-Hulk she blossoms into the life of the party.
Uncontrollable Transformations - Jennifer is not yet able to control the switch from herself to She-Hulk and vice-versa. When she does transform into She-Hulk she has a hard time transforming back because she prefers the form of the giantess and her rather buxom attitude rather than herself. 

SKILLS:
Aspiring Combatant: - Jennifer has learned some boxing skills from her father, who before becoming sheriff was a boxer of some renown. She is hoping to learn more so she is better able to utilize her newfound gifts.

HISTORY:
Jennifer Walters is an orphan, losing both of her parents in an unfortunate car accident when she was seventeen. She was nearly murdered by her late father's old nemesis, the mobster Nicholas Trask. When taken to the hospital it was discovered there was no blood that was compatible to her type. Luckily her cousin Bruce Banner was close by and since they shared the same DNA and blood type her provided his own blood for the transfusion. His radioactive blood combined with the inner anger Jennifer had always felt transformed her into the She-Hulk. In her first transformation she breaks out from the hospital and succeeds on getting her revenge on Nicholas Trask.

Jennifer has always had problems controlling her more savage counterpart. She decides to attend the Xavier School for Gifted Children, learning that the mutants there could possibly aid her in controlling her newfound power.

(I didn't change the history too much. I actually kind of like her origin. I'm going to assume for this universe that Bruce went missing shortly after giving her some of his blood.)

I'm in love....

I'm going to bow out, guys. I didn't realize the game was going to be in the NC forums and I'm not comfortable playing there.

I know you're going to have lots of fun with this game. I ran a Marvel board on Yuku for eight years based on this premise of reimagined characters and it was amazing.

Are you still looking for players? I adore the X - Men movieverse and I have a couple of OC's that I created, if there's still room.

Offline Amelita

I'm kind of thinking about a male Storm or a Black Panther.

But I'm also kind of thinking Hawkeye or Gambit.


And... I can't decide -snicker-

Gonna think about it some.



Or ooooooh if Wolverine is back up for grabs...
