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

It's back! X-Men Re-Imagined has been around for some time (amassing over 10,000 posts) and while it went on a hiatus for a while, we are back and ready to get rolling again and we need you!

We are currently accepting all character types (though preference is given to students at the moment). Read below for more information!

If you want to get an idea of what things are like you can visit our forum here or our OOC thread here. There's a ton of old threads to read through if you'd like, or you can just take a look around. (Our old recruitment thread is here as well.)



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. 

Unfortunately not long after the school year began in 2020 Things Started to Happen. Raids across the country, and across the world in smaller numbers, happened pretty much overnight. Many of the few known mutants were rounded up and disappeared. Some fought back and generally were captured or killed, many others kept themselves even more hidden than normal. The school remained, still secret, but most of the X-Men split away to help Mutants in unknown ways as a team. Erik Lehnsherr remained behind to run the school as Xavier's absence (though he himself is often absent).

Some students left, some new ones have arrived. Either way, the school year goes on and mutants gather to learn about themselves, and their powers.

So What Kind of Game is This?
X-Men Re-imagined is 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. In essence, characters can be modified most ay way but they should be recognizable still. Characters can be brand new to the school this year or they can have been at the school for a while.
  • 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.

Is this a movie-verse or comic-verse game?
It is a bit of both. We have a lot of canon Comic stuff, but we work on a slightly more toned down movie-verse scale. There's no mountain throwing hulks in this world. There's also no magic, no aliens, and no other races. All characters will be mutants.

How Many Characters Can I Play?
Two! And you can add more 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.

Currently 'full' on:
Telepaths
Telekinetics
'Unlimited'Shapechangers (Defined as characters who can change into many undefined things. Someone who, for example, changes into various felines or into objects based on touching them, etc. would still be considered.)
Backgrounds with any sort of military, martial arts, militaristic street gangs, mafia, etc. (In other words: We want 'normal' people, not Rambo)

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. You don't even need to fill it out if you don't want to - I can do that for you. 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.

[i]POWER NAME1[/i] - Power description here. Include skill level, limits, disadvantages, etc. The more detail you go into the better off you'll be in the long run. Example [i]SUPER SPEED[/i] - : Quicksilver’s Superhuman Speed allows him to run at upwards of 770mph with effort and he can maintain this speed for several hours before needing to rest. He can also use this speed to do things like run across water or straight up walls given sufficient space to ramp up to full speed.

[b][u]HISTORY:[/u][/b]
Please include a history of your character includes how/when their powers manifested (Age 16 or older!) and anything else that helped to shape your character.

FASERIP Tier System
FASERIP is basically just a 10 point scale with cool names for each level to help give things a better feel. Examples for each stat will be below. The scale is here:

5 - Excellent

Sounds interesting !

a) as far as the system goes, will each person have a certain amount of points which we can place in different categories ? If so how many points ? Do students have less then staff ?

b) Can I be a non-cannon character that is a hermaphrodite or is that too strange, too weird (or too sexual?) ? I was hoping for something sociable as well as smutty.

I can answer your first question. No there isn't, but the stats must reflect your history and powers well.

As BH said, no specific points. In the comics you have some characters that are pretty Typical across the board while others might seem a bit more Amazing, but in the end they each add to the story.  There's no rolls or anything of the like, so don't worry too much about it. It is mostly so we have some easy to find limits and whatnot.

And a hermaphrodite would be fine - I don't think we have one technically, but we have a couple changelings who probably have played with similar conditions. :)

Online Lockepick

For what it's worth -- I believe my character (Mirage) is the only one to even slightly interact with the FASERIP system in comparing stats -- and that only came up because the two players weren't sure if his power should or shouldn't work or not -- so we fell back to the numbers there.

Mystique is currently sex-less, but I think she's the only one currently outside of the two party system of gender.

So...

What you're saying is that I can re-create Storm or create a Storm like character?

Indeed - though unfortunately we have a Storm character in the works already. You could certainly do something similar though :)

Will you allow a Darwin or is he far too OP? Seeing as comic wise he is just plain unkillable that's just his power.

He'd be acceptable as long as things weren't abused (luckily he doesn't always get to choose how his powers manifest  >:)).

Offline vatovie

Actually he never chooses. It's a part of his brain he has no control over. I'm totally cool with the GMs picking how his power reacts to things when it matters. The only thing being his powers will never let him die. It can suck in a million ways but he can't die. He also can't exactly use it in a fight. :)

Offline RubySlippers

Any room for a generally average mutant?

I'm thinking mostly typical and good abilities and powers but might have several from poor to good maybe just fun ones or silly, well not all powers are going to be winners.

Nevermind then....Great idea though :3

Actually he never chooses. It's a part of his brain he has no control over. I'm totally cool with the GMs picking how his power reacts to things when it matters. The only thing being his powers will never let him die. It can suck in a million ways but he can't die. He also can't exactly use it in a fight. :)

Exactly - its happened a lot in the comics that it doesn't always have such a great effect. Sometimes saving yourself means abandoning teammates, or turning into a puddle of water mid battle :( oops! :D

Any room for a generally average mutant?

I'm thinking mostly typical and good abilities and powers but might have several from poor to good maybe just fun ones or silly, well not all powers are going to be winners.

Hi Ruby! It depends on what you've got for an idea. Feel free to shoot me a PM. The powers themselves don't really have ranks, but we can figure something out.

Nevermind then....Great idea though :3

You sure? There's plenty of other options :) And while we have a Storm in the works, someone could still have things like Aerokinesis or Lightning type effects and whatnot.

Nah, I'm good. It would've been fun for me - but I don't want to be a copy cat if someone is already working on a Storm character.

Looks like we now have an Iceman, a Shadowcat, and a couple new OCs!

Still plenty of room for more.

p.s. @ la dame en noir - It looks like Storm will be open, the player swapped over to making a version of Marrow I believe.

We'll be around for a while if you change your mind :)

Of course! Feel free to shoot me a message if you want to bounce ideas off me.



We just added a couple OCs, Iceman, Shadowcat, and have a few more in the works. Get in and join the school while the getting is good, folks! :)

I think I want to create a character who has control over Biology...or Hormones. :3

Or possibly just a shapeshifter. :3

Hormones would be interesting for sure - we don't have a version of Wallflower yet.

We've  got a couple shapeshifter-like types already, but depending on what you had in mind it could still work (for example someone who takes on properties of what they touch, or only specializes in certain types of things like wild animals only, etc)

Lots of ideas still open! :)

I was thinking or a power, just one, not under her control Probability Manipulation (good luck, self-only, no control) but would overall a pretty average character on FASERIP (F2, A3, S3, E4, R4, I3, P3) would likely be a good student with no combat experience or training. Likely her resources will be good she tends to win Lotto scratch off games and prizes, and in a casino tends to win more than she loses by a fair margin. Not sure why she is just "lucky" that way.

Offline Wolfy

Well, I was thinking more in the way of Hormones or Biology and being able to control it completely...as in able to change Genders as well on a whim. xD
