Plot - please read.
I just wanted to give everyone a timeline of things that will/have come to pass. Parts of this have already been posted.
The Professor wakes up on Tuesday, August 11th (2009), and is back around the upper levels by late Wednesday, August 12th (2009). That's ten days he was unconscious and without Cerebro being used (by him).
Forge, Mars, Matrix and Zap get Cerebro back up and running on August 7th (with the feedback of Emma/Jean now and again).
On Monday, August 3rd, political supporters of the Mutant Registration Act spoke out across the country (with anti-mutant sentiments across the globe). It is back up for vote Friday, August 17th, 2009. Senator Kelly had been whipping up support for the MRA (and himself) in this thread.
Magneto has been apprehended and is in jail ala X2. The Brotherhood has been separated. It seems that our group of players here isn't really keen on the Brotherhood in the first place, so we're finding places for them to be / purposes for each of them after Magneto's gone. Mystique will be attempting to spring Magneto.
After discussion with Leigh and a few other players, it seems like the idea of a school BBQ on the lawn (and a chili cook-off: enter here!) would be good to celebrate the Professor waking up. This would probably take place Saturday, August 15th, 2009. So we could have swimming and a massive thread so that everyone could have a chance to interact if they so choose. Besides Liberty Island, we haven't really had a thread of that manner yet.
While Magneto is in prison, Stryker will be visiting him. These visits will happen through the month of August. Stryker will launch an attack on the X-Mansion in hopes of obtaining what was necessary for him to make his own Cerebro, and fail. There are far too many X-Men for him to succeed in the confines of this game. This will happen in early September.
Throughout the month of September, the Mutant Registration Act will be passed and school (the fall semester) will be starting for Xavier's Institute. The use of sentinels will go public.
In early October, several simultaneous attacks by sentinels will occur in the New York area. During this evening, the X-Men will be separated into several teams to help control the damage and (hopefully) take out the sentinels. This is when Stryker will return to the mansion to finish what he started. He will succeed.
So, we'll have three groups. Two groups will be fighting sentinels and one group will be defending the mansion. If you don't want your character(s) involved at all, you can say they're out of town.
It's confirmed that Britannic, Colossus, Warpath and Dukes will be fighting sentinels. It doesn't make sense for them not to.
So I need to hear from all of you if you wish for your characters to be out fighting sentinels or in fighting MRDs/Stryker. Super-powerful mutants or those with great control shouldn't be left at the school. The Professor/Phoenix/Diamond should be gone as well, whatever they're doing (sentinels or not). Please let us know what you think and where you'd like your characters to be!
INDIGO = NPC.
THE SECOND ATTACK ON THE MANSION (OCTOBER)
