Okay I understand you want to build a mutant saga here but don't you think its better to start out small and build one story at a time? also since we are thinking big are you planing on dealing with just the xavior institute and its day to day functions or are you planning missions, adding in foes or a alternate school like in the evolution cartoon? Will we be adding cannon characters, groups and locations, like the Morlocks, the savage lands, Shield, The sentinels,The the brotherhood of mutants, the hellfire club, Alternate time lines and Time-jumpers, the Shi'ar, Brood, Mr. Sinister, Candyman, and Apocalypse. Alternately will we build all new characters, villains and heroes, using the rules, categories, and world view of X-men? If so will their be teams, elected leaders, the opportunity to change sides, etc. or will you as the GM be controlling all the major foes as well as the schools administration? also will we be playing this before or after House of M in the time-line? Just a few questions from an old fan.
