It is 2021, and most of the X-Men known and loved by a generation have retired, died, or are fighting the good fight in distant parts of the world. After Professor Xavier's death at the hands of the Phoenix and subsequent resurrection, he stayed with Dr. Moira Taggert, leaving his School for the Gifted in the hands of Storm and Beast. The name has changed to the Xavier Academy, but the curriculum and the mission remains the same: To train a new generation of mutants and give them the skills to control their powers. From each graduating class has come new X-Men, young men and women called to answer the mission of protecting Earth from all those who would threaten it.Game Notes
This would be a loosely system-based game. By that, I mean there is a progression in ranks that would determine how powerful and what abilities a mutant could have. For instance, a telekinetic mutant might only be able to lift other objects at first rank, but by the third he could lift himself. This is just an example and would very much so be open to negotiations. The rankings are determined by participation in the game, with players advancing at their own rate as they want. Higher ranking players, IE those that have been around for a long time, could be invited to present mission ideas, lead them, or even join as a co-GM.
The general flow of the game would be "Month On, Month Off". Every other month, a "mission" would be available to the players, and each person would have the choice to participate or not (though it would be highly encouraged), and between missions would be considered free-time. This helps to keep the game fresh, provide opportunities for people to develop their characters and abilities, and still participate in the X-Men Universe.Characters
Being an Academy for young mutants, all characters would still have to be above the minimum age of 16. Short of that, any ability or power would be considered, though not all might be accepted.
