X-men Forever RPG: (90`s Era/LGTB Freindly) OPEN
« on: May 30, 2015, 09:56:50 AM »
An X-men Game set during the 1990s era of the comics. Inspired by the resale of the new X-men 92 comic. Just to be clear, this game is set before the AGE OF APOCALYPSE, ONSLAUGHT, SEARCH FOR XAVIER, E IS FOR EXTINCTION, HERE COMES TOMMROW, HOUSE OF M, MESSIAH COMLEX, MESSIAH WAR and all the story's that followed it.

As far as the X-men are concerned the legacy virus hasn't been infected into the mutant population and their oldest enemy Magneto was killed during their last battle on Asteroid M. X-force are out fighting for Xavier's dream in a more violent style, The Hellfire Club has disbanded after the deaths of the Hellions, X-factor is working for the government and Genoshia is a mutant graveyard.

I WILL accept more recent characters from the X-men universe like say X-23, Hellion, Pixie etc etc. But we will need  to figure out together how to bring them into the fold in a new and exciting way.

I am also open to created characters but the same applys to them. They will need to be RECRUITED into the fold.

The Game will it be a cross of sandbox and GM-driven. The first Story Arc is already been planned out.
Violence and sexual content is Encouraged but as is story development and plot.
It is a Freeform  game, combat will be resolved via a polling system or done privately between the GM and the players depending on the seize of the battle.

 STORM


CHARACTER NAME: Storm
REAL NAME: Ororo Munroe
AGE: 28
SEXUAL ORIENTATION: Bisexual (Leans heavily towards men)
HEIGHT: 5`11
WEIGHT: 127lbs.
AFFILIATION: The X-men
PLAYED BY: loislanekent
FACECLAIM: Halle Berry

APPERENACE:







HISTORY:

Ororo Munroe, also known as Storm, is the descendant of an ancient line of African priestesses, all of whom have white hair, blue eyes, and the potential to wield magic. Born Ororo Munroe, her mother, N'Daré, was the princess of a tribe in Kenya, who married the American photojournalist, David Munroe, and moved with him to Manhattan, where Ororo was born.

When Ororo was six months old, she and her parents moved to Cairo, Egypt and, at the age of five, a plane crash destroyed their home. Ororo's parents were killed, but she survived, buried under rubble near her mother's body. This traumatizing effect left Ororo with the severe claustrophobia that still afflicts her today.

She became a thief and was the first of Xaviers students to encounter him. But despite offers she didn't return to America with him.
Months later, however, Professor Xavier was left with no choice but to recruit Storm, as he called her, and other mutants from around the world into the X-Men in order to rescue his original students from the threat of the sentient island being, known as Krakoa. Prof. Xavier explained to Ororo that she was not a "goddess", but a mutant and had a responsibility to use her abilities to help the world, just as she had helped the local tribes. Curious, Ororo accepted Professor Xavier's offer and was given the codename "Storm". After most of the original team left, Ororo, along with fellow new recruits Nightcrawler, Colossus, Wolverine, Thunderbird, and Banshee stayed as members of the new X-Men.
After serving with the team for two years, Storm was appointed leader of the team following the departure of former leader, Cyclops, after the apparent death of Jean Grey.

Soon after, the X-Men encountered the underground community of mutants, known as the Morlocks, who had kidnapped one of their former members, Angel. To save her friend, Storm challenged the Morlock leader, Callisto, to a duel and bested her in hand-to-hand combat. As a result, Storm became leader of the Morlocks and she ordered them to cease their hostilities against the surface-dwelling humans.
When the X-Men later traveled to Japan to attend the wedding of their team member Wolverine, Storm first met the ninja named Yukio and the X-Men battled Viper and Silver Samurai over control of Clan Yashida. A friend of Wolverine's, Yukio was the most carefree spirit that Ororo had ever met and the two became fast friends. Yukio influenced a major rebellious change in Storm's attitude towards life and she took to wearing leather and shaved her hair into a Mohawk.

Storm later had her powers accidentally neutralized by Henry Gyrich with a gun invented by the mutant machinist, named Forge, who took it upon himself to nurse Storm back to health. During her convalescence at Forge’s headquarters in Eagle Plaza in Dallas, Texas, Storm and Forge fell in love, but their relationship was cut short after Storm learned Forge had created the device that stripped her of her powers.
She However continued to serve as leader of the team without her mutant gifts.

But her powers were eventually restored by the time the X-men temporarily moved to Australia. Throughout the ever changing roaster of the X-men over the next few years Storm remind a loyal member. She was assigned as leader of the GOLD team recently.

POWERS/ABILITIES:

A) Weather Control;

Storm has demonstrated a plethora of abilities, most of which are facets of her power to manipulate the weather. Storm possesses the psionic ability to control all forms of Weather Manipulation over limited areas. She has been able to control both Earthly and extra terrestrial ecosystems on several occasions. She can modify the temperature of the environment, control all forms of precipitation, humidity and moisture (at a molecular level), generate lightning and other electromagnetic atmospheric phenomena, and has demonstrated excellent control over atmospheric pressure. She can incite all forms of meteorological tempests, such as tornadoes, thunderstorms, blizzards, and hurricanes, as well as mist. She can dissipate such weather to form clear skies as well.

B) Electromagnetic;

Also known as Electromagnetic Radiation, EM Energy is the mixture of electric fields and magnetic fields combining together causing the flow of electricity to generate multiple effects. The electromagnetic force is second in effective strength only to the strong force and is infinite in range. Storm has a direct relationship with this source of energy. By using him as a lightning rod, Storm was able to focus a massive amount of EM energy through Colossus, and then into herself, and has also shown the ability to create EMPs of varying degrees. Electromagnetic radiation is classified according to the frequency of its wave. One classification would be gamma rays. Using a combination of gamma radiation and kinetic energy Storm was able to deflect solar flares from the sun around the entire planet. Since Electromagnetism is one of the four fundamental forces of the universe, Storm is also able to use this source of energy to amplify her other abilities to incredible levels.

C)Radiant/Solar Energy;

Radiant Energy is the energy of EM waves and can be transmitted in the form of electromagnetic radiation. The Sun as well as other stars produce radiant energy and given the right circumstances Storm can manipulate this energy on a large scale. Outer Space contains elements of much larger quantities and potency than that on Earth, which is why Storm's powers are seen as amped during her time in space. Storm was able to manipulate the radiant energy from the solar corona of the sun and convert it to Solar winds to fly in space, as well as create a Force 12 Gale to destroy a sentinel backed by the full power of the sun. Both are impressive feats but the most ambiguous display occurred when Storm summoned the full power of an entire galactic core, millions of stars and suns within a close proximity, within herself to stop a brood transformation

WEAKNESSES:

A)Claustrophobia: (Practically formerly) Having been trapped under rubble for three days while her mother lay dying, Storm's claustrophobia was once so severe, it rendered her completely helpless. However, she has more or less conquered her fear, though tight spaces still make her uncomfortable.

B)Emotional Influence:(Practically Formerly) Storm's ability to manipulate the weather in her immediate vicinity is affected by her emotions; hence, if she does not maintain control, a fit of rage might induce a destructive storm. As a result, Storm has in the past kept a tight rein on all extreme emotions.

C) Physical Condition:(Practically Formerly) Storm is limited by the force of her will and the strength of her body. It once took her several hours to put an end to a savage blizzard sweeping over much of Canada, and she nearly killed herself from exhaustion in the process.

PERSONALITY:

A passionate and careining nature. A born leader and mother figure. She has a passionate side.
Storm was formerly in a serious relationship with Forge.
Ororo lost her virginity to T'Challa, at age 12.
Storm is claustrophobic due to her traumatic childhood experiences in Cairo.
Ororo was best friends with Jean Grey who she considers her *sister*
Storm is also very close with Wolverine (friends with benefit's), Colossus, Nightcralwer, Kitty Pryde, Gambit and Rogue.
Ororo considers she and Cyclops to have a healthy sibling like rivalry with each other.
Storm considers Charles Xavier to be second farther to her.

EQUIPMENT:

Storm often carries lock picks. Also formerly a knife for protection when she lost her powers. and M'Rinn gave her a Cameo Crystal that could detect and allow Storm to get to M'Rinn's dimension.

KNOWN ENEMIES: The Shadow King, Mystique, Calisto and The Man Ape.

WEIGHT: 127lbs.
AFFILIATION: The X-men, Excalibur (formerly), SHEILD (formerly)

FACECLAIM: Lyndsey Foncessca

APPERENACE:




HISTORY:

Kitty was born in Deerfield, Illinois. When she was 13 years old, she began getting headaches which were the result of her mutant powers starting to manifest. Both the Hellfire Club and Professor X pursued Kitty to get her to join their cause. Kitty did not like Emma Frost or her attitude which made Kitty feel uncomfortable around her. It was an easy decision for Kitty to go with Xavier and the few X-Men accompanying him. One of the X-Men was Storm, and they quickly became friends.

The X-Men were abruptly attacked by mercenaries sent by Emma Frost. They battled and The X-Men defeated them easily, but Emma used her telepathy to freeze everyone. Kitty was able to slip away during the confusion and contacted Cyclops, Jean Grey, and Nightcrawler. They arrived soon after and Kitty helped them rescue the captured X-Men. Xavier returned Kitty to her parents who were furious that their daughter had been missing for an entire day. When Professor Xavier requested that she be allowed to study at his School For Gifted Youngsters, Kitty's parents refused, and expressed their fear for the danger they felt he represented to their daughter. Jean Grey erased their memories and replaced them with false ones, thus changing their perception of Professor Xavier. Kitty's parents relented, and she was allowed to join the school, becoming the youngest X-Man ever.

While in the X-men, Kitty developed a relationship with her (older) team member, Colossus. She also became close friends with his sister Illyana Rasputin. Initially, Kitty was also uncomfortable around mutants with irregular physical features such as Nightcrawler. Eventually she overcame this problem as she got to know him, and the two became close friends. During a mission in space, Kitty befriended an alien dragon named Lockheed. They gained a psychic bond with each other and Lockheed became extremely loyal to Kitty. To this day the two are nearly inseparable.

While dating Colossus Kitty met Douglas Ramsey, a bright young man who shared her love for computers, science fiction, and arcade games. The two seemed an ideal pair; both notably bright (Kitty has been said to possess 'genius-level intelligence', Doug being on par), from similar backgrounds, and close in age.

This was not lost on Colossus, who sometimes wondered if he, a 'simple Russian farm boy', could make Kitty as happy as her new friend seemed to. The White Queen stated that Kitty had feelings for Doug when she tried to persuade the young woman to transfer to Massachusetts Academy. Despite all this, Kitty and Colossus remained close, often going to Salem Center on dates. Colossus, despite having stated that he and Kitty had already talked about having a life together once she was old enough, developed feelings for an alien named Zsaji whom he met during the Secret Wars. At first he thought the feelings were due to the side-effects of her healing powers, but he eventually realized them as genuine emotion. The object of his affections, however, died in battle, a loss that affected the young Russian profoundly. Once back on earth, he confessed to Kitty that he had not been faithful and cheated on her with Zsaji. This ultimately ended their relationship.

When Kitty's father, Carmen Pryde, ran into trouble with the Yakuza, she went to Japan to investigate. She was kidnapped and brainwashed by a ninja Yakuza boss named Ogun. Using a combination of brainwashing and training techniques that bordered on magical, Ogun turned her into an assassin and she single-handedly killed entire groups of ninjas. When he felt she was ready, Ogun ordered her to kill Wolverine. Kitty nearly did kill Wolverine before his friend, Yukio, beat her senseless, allowing Kitty the opportunity to defeat the brainwashing. Kitty realized that she had been turned into a killing machine and tried to run away, however Wolverine stopped her and forced her to confront her issues. Kitty, Wolverine, and Yukio battled Ogun together and defeated him. Defeated and humiliated, Ogun tried to kill her, but impaled himself on Wolverine's claws as he passed through Kitty's phased form. In the end Kitty decided not to kill Ogun which convinced Wolverine that she was herself again.

Together, Kitty and Wolverine helped her father recover, eventually returning to New York City. The two have since developed a big brother/little sister relationship. She also adopted the code name Shadowcat after this event.

During the Mutant Massacre, Kitty was badly injured saving Rogue from Harpoon. Her injury made her unable to un-phase and she was rushed to Muir Island to be treated by Dr. Moira MacTaggert. Moria was able to stop her from losing physical substance which would have made her cease to exist, but was not able to do more. Kitty was still intangible and had to make an extreme effort of concentration to become solid. At first they went to Mr. Fantastic for help, but he declined, claiming that he did not know what he could do for her. The X-Men turned to Doctor Doom, which angered the Fantastic Four. The Fantastic Four then tried to stop Dr. Doom from treating Kitty, believing that Doom had an ulterior motive, and they battled the X-Men. Franklin Richards stopped the two teams from fighting and made everyone come to their senses, in the process bonding considerably with Kitty herself. Reed Richards saw the error of his ways and decided to help the wounded young mutant, saving her life.

During a fight with the Adversary (Kitty was not present due to her injuries from the Mutant Massacre), the X-Men made a sacrificing move to defeat him. This was televised live and it showed the X-Men being killed while defeating the Adversary. They were later resurrected and decided to keep a low profile so they could have the advantage on their enemies. This meant they could not contact friends, family or even Kitty. Thinking her friends had died, Kitty was devastated. She left the X-Men mansion together with her long time teammate Nightcrawler and her pet dragon, Lockheed, and went to Britain. There she helped form the superhero team Excalibur which included new teammates Captain Britain and Meggan.

She and Rachel Summers (an old X-Men teammate) were good friends, however, she was annoyed with her a great deal sometimes as most men they met were only interested in Rachel. Wanting to be like Rachel, Kitty dressed up in one of Rachel's costumes, strapped some high heels on, painted her face and went out on the town.After some time with Excalibur, Kitty learned that the X-men, who she presumed dead, where still alive. While being happier then she had been in a while, she and Nightcrawler choose to remain with Excalibur. 

POWERS/ABILITIES:

Kitty Pryde has the ability to pass through solid matter by allowing the molecules of her body to travel through the space between the molecules of whatever solid she is traveling through. In A+X she explains she used to hold her breath or she thought she had to but after the initial shock wore off, she can now phase through solid objects while breathing and talking. She can also render other people and objects intangible by touching them. When phasing through extremely dense materials, such as adamantium, Kitty experiences pain and disorientation as well as those with dense metals in their bodies ( Wolverine, X-23, etc.) should she phase through them. For some unknown reason, when Kitty phased through Garokk, it caused him intense pain. The reason for this is unclear. Kitty is capable of phasing any amount of her body through objects as well as humans leaving them unconscious.

Kitty can disrupt electronic devices by passing through them in this manner without harm to herself. When she uses this ability in the opposite direction she can levitate herself by walking on air, as if she were walking up a flight of stairs. In her intangible state she is weak against certain energies, psionic and mystical attacks. While in phase form Kitty has demonstrated a remarkable resistance to psychic probing and psionic attacks, but she can be hurt by the Soul Sword and remains vulnerable to magic-based attacks.

WEAKNESSES:

Kitty sufferd mental torture under the hands of Ogun and never really got over it, she considers him her greatest foe.
She is susceptible to all magical attack and telepathic assaults. Kitty would die for her friends and they are her greatest weakness.
Kitty feels guilty for the death of her farther and thinks she could have saved him If she hadn't been so proud when they fell out.   

PERSONALITY:

A trained dancer and gymnast.
Has a passion for the theatre and music festivals, loves to travel.
She wears her Jewish Star under her uniform.
Kitty never really stopped loving her first boyfriend Piotr Rasputin.
She sees Logan and Ororo as surrogate "parents".
Kitty is also close with Cyclops, Nightcralwer, Rachel Grey, Illyana Rasputin, Captain Britain and Megan. 

EQUIPMENT:

Kitty dosent really carry around weapons but she is trained in all types of weaponry.

KNOWN ENEMIES: Ogun, Magneto, Nimrod, and others.

Possibly Longshot. I know we briefly talked about Spidey too, though I guess you're centring on the mutants, thats cool.

Seeing a few fun folk in this thread.  It's been a while since I've played Banshee.  How much leeway do we have with our characters?  Thinking of Ewan MacGregor for the faceclaim and dropping the accent, with a bit more history in the US as opposed to the UK.

I would potentially be interested in Gambit, Warpath, or Quicksilver.

I still have not managed to make images work on here if that's a deciding factor. I'm a lot more a writer than a graphics guy I guess.

I look forward to hearing back.

lois, I've replied to your PM about Longshot and Legion, my face-claims I've shown are more a starting point, you're pretty good at suggesting people so I'm open to see if you can think of people better suited.

Being a '90s game... My pics for those two are pretty... '90s...  ::)

CHARACTER NAME: Banshee

REAL NAME: Sean Cassidy
AGE: 41
SEXUAL ORIENTATION: Heterosexual
HEIGHT: 6'0"
WEIGHT: 175
AFFILIATION: X-Men
FACE CLAIM: Ewan MacGregor
APPEARANCE: Banshee is possessed of a light build, being one of the weaker X-Men in terms of upper body strength.  His hair is noticeably starting to gray, something he's resigned himself to.
POWERS/ABILITIES: Superhuman hearing, Sonic screams, Flight, Concussive blasts, Sonic energy lances, Ability to cause nausea, disorientation, or unconsciousness, Immune to powers of known family members
WEAKNESSES: His powers are tied into vocal chords, meaning that they are subject to fatigue and he loses the ability to maintain frequency when strained.  He is also not immune to his own powers if he pushes them beyond his normal limits.
HISTORY: After growing up in Ireland, Sean moved to New York when Black Tom inherited Cassidy Keep.  He started working for INTERPOL, quitting after a few years due to a failed mission (botched by Deadpool).  While doing freelance detective work, he stumbled across Factor Three.  They found a way to mind control him, leading to his first fight as a mutant, that fight against the original X-Men team. 

For the next couple of years he continued in New York, living a somewhat normal life, his abilities aiding him greatly as a detective.  When the original X-Men team became captured, Banshee was one of several enlisted to help save them. 

Over the remaining years, Banshee lived a mainly normal life, interrupted by occasional stints as an X-Man or helping the team as he could, at times limited by temporary losses of power due to over stress.

PERSONALITY: Banshee is something of an outsider among the X-Men.  Though only Cyclops and Jean Grey joined before him, his off and on status along with being a decade older than the original class always set him rather apart, and he never felt really close to them.  He did feel a semi-kinship with Wolverine, both of them being experienced combatants and older than their students, having joined at the same time, and neither being full-time members, though Wolverine seemed to eventually find his place among the team.  Banshee often keeps to himself, playing on the piano, reading, working out, or listening to music while he works Sudoku puzzles.  He is a generous friend, dependable in any situation, and an excellent listener, though he can be a bit awkward at times.

EQUIPMENT: Banshee always carries a simple sidearm on him, and occasionally a handful of assorted grenades.
KNOWN ENEMIES: Black Tom

CHARACTER NAME: Gambit
REAL NAME: Remy Etienne LeBeau
AGE: 26
SEXUAL ORIENTATION: Heterosexual
HEIGHT: 6'2
WEIGHT: 189lbs
AFFILIATION: X-Men, Thieves Guild, Marauders
FACE CLAIM: Channing Tatum
APPEARANCE:

Gambit is about 6'2, 190lbs. He works out all the time so you can see how muscled he is; he's more of a racer than bodybuilder when it comes to body type. He's incredibly handsome and has wooed women just by looking at them before. He has an almost always present scruff on his face, like a 5 o'clock shadow that won't go away; it works for his charm though. His eyes are unique, in that his sclera(white part of the eye) is black, while his irises are a vibrant, glowing red. He's had that mutation since he was born, and it was the reason he was abandoned as an infant.


POWERS/ABILITIES:

Molecular Acceleration - Remy has the power to take the potential energy stored in an object and convert it to kinetic energy thus “charging” that item with explosive results. He prefers to charge smaller objects, such as his ever-present playing cards, as the time required to charge them is greatly reduced and they are much easier for him to throw. The only real limitation to this ability is the time required to charge the object. The larger it is the more time it takes. He can charge a rock as big as a small house in the matter of seconds. Most charging takes place through direct skin contact. The power of his explosions is dependent on the mass of the object he is charging, for example, a charged playing card explodes with the force of a grenade. Gambit can also use his powers to accelerate an object's kinetic energy instead of converting its potential energy, for example, he can charge his bo staff with enough power to level a house.

Enhanced Agility - Gambit's ability to tap energy also grants him superhuman agility and dexterity which gives him an added edge he has used to his advantage by developing a unique acrobatic fighting style. Gambit is so fast he can easily block automatic gunfire with his staff and has avoided being hit by a room full of lasers all pointed at him.

Static Interference - Creates natural mental static, because of the charged potential energy always in his body, that shields his mind from intrusion by telepaths. Can increase the effect by holding a charged object near his head.  Although reportedly uncomfortable for the parties involved, this shield does not totally prevent telepathic invasion.

Hypnotic Charm - Subliminal psionic talent channeled through his voice that allows a subtle influence over any sentient mind. This power allows Gambit to compel others to believe what he says and agree with anything he suggests. More powerful minds have proven immune to Gambit's charm, and people who are consciously aware of what he's doing can shake off the effects.

SKILLS:

Master Thief - Gambit was groomed to take over the Thieve's Guild back in Louisiana since he was taken in as a newborn. He was literally raised around thieves and criminals. His training was intensive and due to years and years of it, Gambit is one of the best thieves in the world, even  without his powers. He can sneak into practically anywhere, bypass or disable any type of security system, etc... Simply put, if Gambit can't find it, steal it, or break into somewhere...it can't be done.

Martial Arts Expert - His training also included combat, and Gambit has mastered the French form of Savate(French Kickboxing) as well as Bojutsu(using a staff in combat). He knows many more styles, but those two are his true area of expertise, and his powers make him even more formidable in a fight.

Expert Marksman - As evidenced by his choice of projectile(throwing cards), Gambit is a master at hitting his target, whether it's with a gun or cards or knives. If it can be used as a projectile, chances are he's good at using it.

Multilingual - Gambit is fluent in both English, and Cajun French. He speaks, reads, and writes several other languages as well.



WEAKNESSES: Due to the extreme potential of his powers, for a time Gambit couldn't control them. So he had Sinister remove a portion of his brain. Because of this his powers are weakened and he can't charge anything without physical contact. Despite his powers, he's not much more durable than a normal person, so pretty much anything that can kill a normal person can kill him as well.

HISTORY: Remy LeBeau is a mutant who was trained to be the leader of the Thieves Guild. Abandoned at birth due to his burning red eyes, the child who would one day become Remy LeBeau was kidnapped from his hospital ward by members of the New Orleans Thieves Guild who referred to the child as "le diable blanc" - the white devil. They believed he was the child that had been prophesied to unite the warring Guilds. Soon after, Remy was placed in the care of a gang of street thieves who raised the child and taught him the ways of thievery.

Later, when he was around ten years old, Remy attempted to pick the pocket of Jean-Luc LeBeau, then-patriarch of the Thieves' Guild. Jean-Luc took the boy in off the streets and adopted him into his own family. As part of a peace pact between the Thieves’ Guild and their rivals, the Assassin’s Guild, a marriage was arranged between Remy and Bella Donna Boudreaux, the granddaughter of the head of the Assassins Guild. However, Bella Donna's brother Julien objected to the marriage and challenged Gambit to a duel. Remy killed Julien in self-defense, but was excommunicated and banished from New Orleans in an attempt to maintain the non-aggression pact between the two guilds.

Remy wandered the world as he plied his skills as a master thief, aided by his mutant power to charge objects with explosive energy. He employed playing cards he charged with kinetic energy as his trademark weapon. At one point Remy had approached the master geneticist Mr. Sinister for help in controlling his powers. Sinister removed some of Remy's brain tissue to reduce his power levels, thus affording him a greater degree of control.

As a result, Remy was now in the geneticist's debt, and Sinister subsequently charged the thief with assembling the team of assassins called the Marauders. Remy did not realize that Sinister would employ the Marauders to massacre the underground mutant community known as the Morlocks. Seeing the horrific results of his actions, Remy attempted to stop the massacre but was almost killed by the Marauder named Sabretooth. However, he did manage to save one young Morlock girl who would one day grow up to become the X-Man named Marrow.

Eventually, Remy encountered Storm, a member of the outlaw team of mutant adventurers known as the X-Men. Storm had been transformed into an amnesiac child who had turned to theft as a means to survive. Remy helped her escape her enemy, the malevolent psionic entity known as the Shadow King, and they became partners. Later, when the X-Men's founder Professor Charles Xavier returned from a long period of traveling in outer space, Storm sponsored Remy's admission into the X-Men.

Remy soon fell in love with his fellow X-Man, Rogue, blessed and cursed with the ability to absorb other mutants' thoughts and abilities through skin-on-skin contact. The feeling was mutual, but the two soulmates were condemned never to touch.

Despite his loyalty to the X-Men, Gambit still spends lots of time with the Thieve's Guild as it's second in-command and interim leader when Gambit's adopted father Jean-Luc is unable to give orders for whatever reason.

PERSONALITY:

Gambit is an incurable flirt and will hit on practically anyone provided they are 1) female, and b) attractive. Meet those two requirements and chances are at some point the Cajun will try and chat you up. Due to being trained by the Thieve's Guild, Gambit is a somewhat secretive individual.

 He plays his cards close to his chest almost always, and it's rare that anyone, even Rogue knows exactly what it is he wants or what his motivations are. Despite that behavior, he is loyal to a fault, and will follow his friends into the depths of Hell even if it's not expected of him.

He's cocky and confident almost to the point of arrogance it seems, and while he truly does believe in how amazing he is. However a good thief knows when to cut and run. He has no problem leaving a battle because it can't be won, and he'll argue with the others to get them to realize the same thing.

EQUIPMENT:

Bo Staff - Gambit's prized possession is a collapsible bo staff made of an unknown metal that is not only durable enough to take all the punishment in the line of duty, but to get charged with Gambit's energy and survive the explosion.

Playing Cards - Gambit has a seemingly endless supply of playing cards that are used as his primary weapons.

Armor - Gambit's uniform is armored in several places, so he can take a bit more of a beating than normal.

Tool Kit - No master thief is ever without his tool kit, which holds all that he'd need to break into a place at any given time. His is usually kept in his trench coat.
 
KNOWN ENEMIES: Belladonna Boudreax(sometimes), Assassin's Guild, Mr. Sinister, Marauders, etc...

CHARACTER NAME: Warpath (former alias Thunderbird II)
REAL NAME: James Proudsar
AGE: 22
SEXUAL ORIENTATION: Heterosexual
HEIGHT: 7'2
WEIGHT: 350
AFFILIATION: former member Hellions, former member New Mutants, X-Force
PLAYED BY: Caradoc
FACE CLAIM: Booboo Stewart

        
APPEARANCE: Proudstar is a huge Apache warrior. He has dark skin from being outside so much, and black hair worn to his neck.

POWERS/ABILITIES: Warpath is incredibly strong and tough. He’s in the upper levels for both characteristics. He had phenomenal endurance, both from his powers and training. His senses, particularly sight, hearing, and scent, are sharper than human, although not as acute as Wolverine or Daredevil. He can run at up to 90 miles per hour. He is very hard to hurt, but when it happens, he heals abnormally fast, although not as rapidly as Wolverine.
   Warpath is a skilled hand to hand combatant and knife fighter. Warpath was also trained on the staff by Shatterstar. He is an adept tracker, hunter, and outdoorsman. He speaks English, Apache, and some Spanish.

WEAKNESSES: Warpath’s enhanced senses make him somewhat more susceptible to things like flashbangs. He can be proud, stubborn and vengeful.

HISTORY: James Proudstar grew up at Camp Verde, Arizona, on the Apache reservation. He idolized his older brother, John, pestering him to take him hunting and teach him traditional Apache ceremonies. James was surprised when his brother was recruited by Professor Xavier into the X-Men. James had barely started to get used to the idea of his brother being gone when he received news that John, as the X-Man Thunderbird, had died on a mission.
   James was devastated, and blamed Xavier. His rage and grief made him easy to manipulate, and he was recruited by Emma Frost into her Hellions, taking his brother’s codename, Thunderbird. James was fueled by a desire for revenge against Xavier and the X-Men. Eventually, James came to accept his brother’s death, to question Emma Frost’s motives, and finally left the Hellions to join the New Mutants as Warpath. Shortly after he joined the team became known as X-Force.
   Tragedy continued to follow him. James returned home for a visit to find his family had been slaughtered. He blamed the Hellions initially, but Emma Frost eventually convinced him of her, and their, innocence. The murder of his family remains unresolved.

PERSONALITY: Warpath can be stubborn and vengeful. Despite this, he is loyal to his friends, family, team, and tribe. He is a warrior who fights for his friends and protects the innocent.

EQUIPMENT: Warpath has been known to carry two large bowie knives made of vibranium, and occasionally employs a staff. 

KNOWN ENEMIES: Count Nefaria (killed his brother), Sentinels (hunting all mutants)

CHARACTER NAME: Domino
REAL NAME: Neena Thurman
AGE: 32
SEXUAL ORIENTATION: Heterosexual
HEIGHT: 5’8”
WEIGHT: 120 lbs.
AFFILIATION: X-force
FACE CLAIM: Charlize Theron
APPEARANCE: As a result of her mutation, Domino has chalk white skin. She also has a tattoo around her left eye from her days in a Mutant Breeding Program.



POWERS/ABILITIES:
1.   Domino is a mutant with the ability to subliminally and psionically initiate random telekinetic acts that affect probability in her favor by making improbable (but not impossible) things to occur within her line of sight, thus causing her to have "good luck" and her opponents to have "bad luck." D

2.   Due to her time in the super solider program she is also a very skilled in hand to hand combat as well as proficient with various weapons including guns and knives.


WEAKNESSES:
She can’t consciously control her power as it only takes effect if she is in a stressful situation (such as running or fighting) and it only affects her.
She is terrified of chickens.
Her thrill seeking ways often cause her to put others at risk of injury or harm

HISTORY:    
Domino was the result of a top-secret government breeding program known as Project: Armageddon, which was made specifically to create the perfect weapon and genetically engineer fighting soldiers. Out of the test subjects, Domino was the only survivor but her powers of 'good luck' was deemed a failure in the case of meeting the project's goals.

She was freed from the project by her biological mother who left Domino with Father Rudolpho Boschelli, leader of the cult called the Church of the Sacred Heart which was based in Chicago. Domino lived within this cult until she turned thirteen and escaped. She decided to become a freelance mercenary and worked with various government agencies.

While working for the NSA, Domino was tasked to guard the genius, Dr. Milo Thurman, whose analytical ability made him too dangerous for the government to set free. While guarding him, Domino and Dr. Thurman somehow fell in love with each other, even going so far as getting married, apparently officially. When A.I.M soldiers raided the facility, Milo and Domino separated, with Milo believing that Domino was killed during the raid.

PERSONALITY: Domino is brash, headstrong and very tough. She is a no nonsense mercenary and fighter as well as an experienced thief and killer. She hates it when somebody wastes her time and doesn’t admit to weakness. Domino is also a thrill and adventure junkie she receives a huge rush out of taking risks and will often launch herself into dangerous maneuvers trusting her power to keep her from harm.

EQUIPMENT: Various weapons including but not limited to knives and guns.

KNOWN ENEMIES: Agent Briggs, Arcade, Bantam, Baron von Strucker, Barrage, Bastien, Bella Donna, Black Mamba, Chimera, Copycat and Deadpool.

An X-men Game set during the 1990s era of the comics. Inspired by the resale of the new X-men 92 comic. Just to be clear, this game is set before the AGE OF APOCALYPSE, ONSLAUGHT, SEARCH FOR XAVIER, E IS FOR EXTINCTION, HERE COMES TOMMROW, HOUSE OF M, MESSIAH COMLEX, MESSIAH WAR and all the story's that followed it.

As far as the X-men are concerned the legacy virus hasn't been infected into the mutant population and their oldest enemy Magneto was killed during their last battle on Asteroid M. X-force are out fighting for Xavier's dream in a more violent style, The Hellfire Club has disbanded after the deaths of the Hellions, X-factor is working for the government and Genoshia is a mutant graveyard.

I was looking through my X-books earlier... I can see you're going for an alternate universe with the removal of the Legacy Virus. I can see canon isn't a thing, but I wanted to quickly say Genosha's fall and E for Extinction is a 2001 storyline for New X-Men after all (it's a great story, either way). :)

I was looking through Generation X and thought of the potential they had... They do fit in with your timeline with the Hellions being passed on, if you wanted that extra option of characters.

Just a thought. :)

Question: With characters from several teams in the same game, how much room will there actually be for all these characters to interact?

I realize that going into details may reveal some parts of whatever plot is planned, but perhaps you could give us some general idea at least?

Y'know Excalibur were still kicking around if the Government X-Factor are about in this timeline too, so that's another team right there. I'd have gone with Nightcrawler of Excalibur also if they were a team.

EDIT = I somehow didn't see Excalibur up there, good to see they're about! xD

Basically the game will run on a week by week basis, meaning each post will have a time stamp so we know when which characters interacte when. As for the storyline, lets just say the game takes place loosely after the events of  "X-Cutioners SOng" which was a storyline which saw the Xmen, X force and X factor team up against Apocalypse and Stryfe.

With some members recuperating at the mansion and Cable deciding maybe it is best to follow Xaviers lead from now on. That X force carnt just go out and do what they ant with the consequences be dammed, the story opens the week after with the school rather full, but some brutal attacks on mutants ill cause the  X family to return home but not everyone will stay.
