Xavier's Institute For Higher Learning ~ RECRUITMENT THREAD! v2
« on: October 26, 2016, 05:57:19 PM »
History & Setting

Charles Xavier, an extremely powerful Alpha level mutant, created Xavier's School For Gifted Youngsters. The school is a mansion that belonged to his family for 10 generations. After the first two generations of X-Men who attended the school became adults, the school was renamed to Xavier's Institute of Higher Learning. Most, if not all, of the former students returned to become teachers to the later generations of mutants.

But, the world has changed. People have changed. After mutants became known to the public, there were those that opposed them. Called them "freaks", "abominations", and were afraid of them. It's true that not all mutants used their abilities for good. There were fights; wars even. Sadly, there were casualties for both humans, and mutants.

However, in the end, Xavier and his team were able to put an end to the seemingly never ending battle between the two opposing sides of mutants. As well as swaying the human opinion of mutants. At least, the majority of humans were swayed. There are still hate groups that despise mutants, and wish to see them wiped out.

There are still mutants that oppose Xavier's views to coexist with regular humans.

Magneto, whose complicated relationship with Professor X is known to many, saw himself as the most superior mutant. He surrounded himself with other powerful mutants, who shared his beliefs that humans should not - and will never - be considered equal to them. That was the sole purpose for the major strain on their relationship.

Magneto, Emma Frost, Mystique, Sabretooth, Juggernaut, and Pyro (along with many other mutants they had influenced) launched at attack on the school. Thankfully, no one was killed. Although there were many injuries to students and staff alike. Following the attack, Magneto, Juggernaut, and Sabretooth were all successfully captured and contained in special cells to prevent them from using their powers. Emma, Mystique, and Pyro managed to evade capture. No one knows their current whereabouts...

Injured Mutants
This should be taken into account when creating your character.
  • Angel
  • Havok
  • Iceman
  • Magik
  • Colossus
  • Gambit
  • Marrow
  • Banshee
  • Kitty Pryde
  • Dazzler
  • Jubilee
  • Bishop
  • Northstar
  • Armor
  • Pixie
  • Several possible OCs

Information and Rules

  • So, what kind of character can I play/make? Mutant student or teacher! Omega level mutants will not be available for play at the start. Players must maintain an active presence in the game in order to be eligible to play such a high level character. (This includes any kind of OC Omega characters.)
  • I have an original character I want to play. Is that alright? Of course! Feel free to make whatever kind of character you like. Just don't make your character too overpowered.
  • Will there be combat? Yes!
  • How will combat work? The people involved in the fight will let the GM know who the winner will be, and just play out the scene as they wish. If they can't come to a decision, I'll be happy to step in and help resolve the situation. But, PvP will not be the primary focus of this game. So I doubt there will be any issues here.
  • I wanted to play "insert character here". But you have them listed as a villain. Sorry. I know some villains turn into heroes at certain points in the Marvel Universe, but that won't happen so much in this game. I have a specific set of villains in mind for this game.
  • OK. But you have some former villains listed as playable heroes now. Like I said, I have a specific set of villains in mind for this game.
  • Holy mother of god-modding! What's the deal with Layla?! I created Layla because I wanted a character that was on the same level as Apocalypse, but is a good guy. She's a GM only NPC. As of right now, she is listed as having every power in existence. However, I will not be using her as some kind of "everything proof shield". She's a powder keg, essentially, and Professor X will be keeping her in check.
  • Can I play an Avenger/other Marvel character? No. This is an X-Men game. Sorry.
  • I have an idea for a class/club that you don't have listed. Tell me! I'm open to any suggestions!

Game:
  • Section the Game will be placed in and whether it is a system game or not. Probably Bondage.
  • Who is the RP open to? (Gender, Sexuality, etc..?) Anyone and everyone. :-)
  • Short Summary of Player Roles and General Story/Plot. Players can make a mutant student, or teacher. (Youngest is 16, as per Elliquiy rules.) The game will deal with the characters and the aftermath of the attack on the school, and everyday life in New York. (Humans might become available for play some point during the game.)
  • Setting. Modern day New York.
  • Plot Outline. Following an attack on Xavier's school, students try to resume going about their normal activities. Nevertheless, on edge wondering if another attack will occur.
  • Character creation info/guidelines if any. The character sheets.
  • Required Resources (If any) (If a system game - What books(ver.) or links to information needed such as an online guide or wiki?) There are numerous wikis available for people unfamiliar with the X-Men. Please use characters from the Earth-616 category! You may edit the history of canon characters if you'd like. The GM is slightly knowledgeable as well. Otherwise, she wouldn't be running this game. ;)
  • Game Pacing. Players should post when they are able to.
  • How much sexual activity is likely to occur or expected, if any? I don't want this game to be smut-driven, but I'm not leaving out the sexual element. Use in moderation. I will make a thread dedicated solely to sexual encounters, so as to not disturb the flow of the game.
  • Whether tagging will be used or not. Yes. I will provide a code in each IC thread.
Game Master Info / GM(s) Participation Level
  • Will there be a Co-GM? Not officially. I have someone I defer to for questions and opinions, but I will not be burdening them with the responsibilities of a co-GM.
  • How guided will the play be? Mostly freeform. I'll add in some major, and minor, events to keep things interesting.
  • What extent will players be allowed to create/use environment or setting details? Creating environments and setting details is something I'd like for the player to run by me first.
  • How NPC's will be handled. GM created NPCs should only be controlled by the GM(s), unless otherwise stated. Players creating NPCs can determine who controls them.
  • How active will the GM be? Very.
  • Will there be an OOC thread? Yes.
  • How to contact/approach GM with questions? OOC thread, or PM.
  • How will decisions be resolved? If players cannot reach a conclusion, then I will step in and do my best to help.
  • Will PvP be allowed? Yes. (See first section.)
Additional:
  • Familiarize yourself with The Oath of the Drake, and Ember's Guide to RP Etiquette.
  • Please make note of other player's ons and offs. Blatant disregard of this rule will not be tolerated.
  • Player Participation Expectations. Players should notify the GM, and other players they are interacting with, if they will be gone for an extended period of time. I feel that after a month of unexcused inactivity (IE: just disappearing without notice), the character will either be: placed as inactive, or open for new players to play. This depends on whether the player is playing as a canon character or not, and if other players (new or current) have expressed interest in playing said character.
  • Discuss how new players will be brought into the game. I'm debating on having constant enrollment and recruitment, or using a "year by year" style of recruitment.
  • What Writing style/POV. Third person, past tense is preferred.

Is this an X-Men universe with other races/cultures/aliens? For example, if I played Hulkling would he still be part Kree here, or do the Kree as an alien race not exist and he'd just be a mutant? The main focus is on X-Men type characters. If the character is a mutant, but has DNA of another race mixed in, that's OK. I just didn't want people bringing in Avengers, or Fantastic Four members. Things like that. If a character is classified as a mutant, then you're good to go. If someone wanted to play a straight Kree, or Inhuman, then that wouldn't be accepted.

TL;DR - This game would like emphasis to be placed on mutant genetic. Tone down anything else.

How far can we bend canons? Can their gender be swapped? I'm not opposed to that at all. I think it's an interesting concept, and not something a whole lot of players would try to do. If you feel more comfortable with playing Angel as a female, or Blink as a male, (for example) then I say go for it. I don't like putting strict limits on player's creativity.

Are there any particular 'kinds' of characters you'd really like to see? Antagonistic types, more teachers, etc.? I wouldn't mind if you wanted to play a student that's maybe a bit of a trouble maker. Or a teacher that's not so friendly with the kids, but still gets his point across. As we all know, not all of the X-Men are happy sunshine and rainbows. *coughLogancough* :P

You have X listed under the Omega level mutants. But he/she isn't really like that. The list of mutants in the Omega section (as well as the other sections) are mostly there for examples. So people creating original characters can look at the lists and compare their creation to what's already established. Since this is a game based around a school, and mutants learning to control their powers, canon characters that are listed as Omega can be toned down to Alpha level or lower and be played as a student. I have plans for certain events to happen (later in the game, mind you) that can give characters a chance to be bumped up a level. This really only extends to toned down canon characters.

Deadpool! OMG DEADPOOL!!! Good lord. OK, here's the deal. Deadpool is a possibility for play. He's usually always connected to the X-Men in some way. That being said, I would prefer if new players wouldn't apply for this character just for the sake of having him. He would also most likely be an "in and out" character at the school. He's a mercenary, and is pretty much always doing his own thing without regard for authority. He would be some kind of staff member, but most definitely not a teacher.

Where is this going? The game? Well, I have long term plans and ideas about how down the line students who graduate can become teachers. This is far down the line, though. Events that happened in the comics may happen throughout the course of the game, as well as events of my own creation. I hope they're as fun for you players, as they were as fun to come up with. ^^

I think this is a great idea with a lot of potential for fun and mischief. I would love to see some new characters joining in the fun.
