Time jump? I'd prefer a year. Heh. Fresh start...



Oct. 23rd, 2009


For the record, we now have a HELLFIRE CLUB page.

I had an idea the other day and I wanted to know if anyone else was interested: Now that the X-Men have been outed, I thought that a publicly announced private party thrown by Shaw to thank the X-Men would be in order. All of them would be invited, not just the ones who had gone on the mission to his estate. Something of a publicity stunt - mostly because he's involved with the government/sentinels scheme. Lol. But yeah. The party would be in early December and could be a topic of discussion for those who aren't ... having babies. Lol. After that, we'd do the big time jump. The Stryker mission to Alkali Lake is going to be summarized in a big OOC, so lemme know if you'd want your characters involved in that, as well.

- If anyone likes the idea of an HFC/X-Men party, it's doable.
- Also, if anyone wants their pups involved in the Hellfire Club, there are open spots for those who would be selected as members.
- Stryker mission - in or out?

Oct. 21st, 2009



Hey guys. Due to some members being MIA, we decided to summarize the attack threads and move on. We wanted to get past all this asap, but things were being draggy. So here are links to the summaries.

Manhattan (Wolverine's team)
Shaw's Party (Bishop's team)
Boston Shipyard (Diamond's team)
The Mansion (the aftermath)

In other news: IRON MAN!

After all the attacks, Tony Stark will be coming to the mansion to tell the X-Men where Stryker is located and that he'll help them if they need it. On the news, there were loads of reports and speculations about the footage of the X-Men who fought the sentinels. Xavier will come to the decision (after consulting the team) to out the X-Men as superheroes; working for the benefit of humanity (homo sapiens and homo superiors alike). Those who wish to remain unidentified/unregistered will not be forced to out themselves. For those who are fine with the spotlight: Get ready to be celebrities! Tony can relate (as well as the Fantastic Four?). We will play through December (in character) and most likely summarize the rescue of those who had been taken by Stryker and held at Alkali Lake. Several of the X-Ladies are with child, and those facts will all come to surface following the mandatory physicals post-Stryker (so in the weekend of the 21st and 22nd of November, 2009).

Work work work.

Hello lieblings. Just a few notes:

- We lost Kait/Iceman due to inactivity. So, Bobby's available. Also, please reuse the flister.

- We need to move things along in the attack threads (ie; get kidnapped if you're supposed to, escape if you're supposed to, get injured if you're supposed to). So, get'r'dun. Don't draw things out; there's a lot more stuff to get accomplished outside of these threads. XD

- I wanted to talk about time jumps and see how everyone felt. After these attacks, there will be a mission to rescue those who were kidnapped and to defeat Stryker. Beyond that, there isn't much planned aside "our take" on what happened in the films, and the aftermath of all of the Stryker / X / sentinels / etc. So, being that there are going to be some pregnancies at the mansion, I wondered if we wanted to take a 6 month time jump after December in the game, or even a year? Things could be backdated, of course. We haven't done a jump that big before, it'd put everyone with a clean slate and make us do something thinking. Let us know what you think.

Vroom vroom party starter.

Okay, so. I've updated the relationships list. Celebrities die in threes, babies come in ... multiples. There are going to be several pregnancies in the game, and we wanted to make mention that anyone else (in a position to do so) is welcome to join the baby boom. Lol... Yeah. It sounds chaotic, but after talking it out, there were several ladies who had been wanting to have children, and the game has been running for 7 months now. We thought they could offer each other support.

On a sadder note, we've lost Cross (Havok) and Laea (Wicked) to inactivity. Please be active and interactive, you guys. Please.

Also, not many people have expressed interest in the second Stryker attack. I might as well give some shout outs and ask for comments here so we can all be on the same page. If someone wishes to NOT write all of this out (sentinels, Stryker, kidnappings, etc), please let us know. But for now, can Kait, Amanda, Dan and Carley comment on this entry with questions, opinions, etc. We'd like to get those threads underway, but I don't want to rush anyone or involve anyone who doesn't want to write that stuff. So please comment here and we can all see what each other is thinking. XD For the record, the OOC pertaining to these attacks is here.

Updates, general chaos...

Foremost, we have some character/player changes.

Rob has created an OC counselor for everyone to vent to. The OOC addressing this character is here and his journal is [info]mr_feelgood.

Leigh has a new OC as well, who communicates/shares abilities with animals. The OOC pertaining to Vivien/Pride is here and her journal is [info]pride_.

Min is no longer with us, and I've chosen to pick up Emma. Husk is now free, however, and has been added to the holds page. My Emma is a bit different, but still very much canon (Min borrowed a great portion of my bio for her Emma, so there aren't too many differences). New Diamond journal is [info]whitediamonds.

Rob, Leigh and I have all updated our wanted scenes to reflect our new additions.

Joan and I have been discussing the possibility of Siryn (age 5) coming into Sean's custody. She would have been the daughter of Black Tom, and gone to Sean after Tom's death. This transition would be played out in game, I assume. So, if anyone has any thoughts/ideas/comments, feel free. She's added to the 'taken' page and has icons under [info]genesis_npcs. If anyone would like the password for that journal, I'll gladly IM or e-mail it to you.

The activity check / character summaries are nearly all up. So if you didn't do one, at least read over the monster. Lol. Here is that thread.

Finally, it's come to my attention that rapid-fire attacks/chaos would be a little trying on everyone, so I'd like to suggest that we have the 'second attack' occur after the Halloween party at the mansion. There's also the option of having the attack happen during the party and making everyone go fight sentinels in their costumes, but that's just mean. XD I think a larger time jump (ie; the end of October) would do us some good, as well. Lately time in the game and real time have been sneaking too close together, in my opinion. I don't want things to get confusing. But for the record, 'time' is addressed in the rules page if anyone is curious. If anyone would like to thread about the attack on the mansion (reactions, etc), please do so. I know there are a load of people with vendettas against Stryker at the mansion now, thanks to XMO: Wolverine. So that should be fun. Wolverine's not in his boat alone anymore. Lol.

For specifics about the Halloween party, Leigh and I have been discussing the when and the how, etc a bit, but feedback / fresh ideas are always welcome. Here's some of what we have so far...

Being that there are children at the school, and that we'd probably want our folks to be able to drink/have fun as they'd like, there should probably be a separation. My thoughts were that the X-Men (of age) could have their party in the gigantic gym downstairs (the one with the speaker system and the pool, etc). They could set up tables and couches and a bar and rock out, that way anyone under 18 could be kept out. As for the younger students or people who didn't want to attend, I think making the grounds 'haunted' would be cool. Then the younger students would have something to do and the teenagers could scare the bejesus out of them.

My other thought was that it could be warm out (50-70 degrees - hey, they do have Storm) and they could do a Playboy Mansion style party outside, with gigantic tents and seating and pillows and tables of food and drink, etc. Example. And the kidlings would be indoors at a "rated G" party.

Either way, doing a "haunted labyrinth" needs to go down, simply because they already have a hedge maze. XD

Because Leigh and I have no lives (well, we don't), we've picked out a number of our characters' costumes. Feel free to comment and stake your claim on ideas for your own pups. And don't worry about doubles (especially with stuff like vampires, pirates, cowboys, etc). It's bound to happen.

Activity Check + Attack Thread Summary

Aloha. *is Beck* I just wanted to say "tag!" for the activity check in hopes that everyone will respond with some sort of thought(s) about how their characters fared in the attack on the mansion. It's been just over a week, but there hasn't been activity in a few days. So, I'm going to assume that we're either bored or confused or lost or a combination of the three. So, this is less of an "activity check" and more of a "please take pity on the mods and respond with your thoughts" entry. Lol. I have the most characters, so I'll comment asap if anyone wants an example. It'll help me figure them out, too.

We've moved ahead in time, as well. So, any late August/early September birthdays are gone (feel free to backdate). We're in mid-September and I'd like to get to early October as soon as possible. That's when the second attack will go down. If we don't feel like writing that out, we don't have to, but I think it would involve four different threads, so it wouldn't be as confusing. Or maybe four would make it worse. Lol. We can decide when we get there. Since this one didn't go over so well, I say we just get past it (it'll be happening in early October) and say Stryker came and succeeded and then we can send a team after the kidnappees. All of that information (a little outdated) is here.

Something Leigh and I have been kicking around: a mansion-wide Halloween party. We didn't get to write out our BBQ, so we thought this would be more fun anyway. Costumes mandatory. Bwahaha! Feel free to discuss that here, too.

Aug. 23rd, 2009


Hey guys. :) Beck here. I just wanted to make a few notes.

1) The attack thread is moving a little slowly, but that's okay. We've gotten fifty posts done in just half a week. That's not so bad, is it? If anyone would like to figure out conclusions to their "threadlets", comment here and hopefully those involved can get back to you. If everything is discussed in public, all the various parts of the thread will hopefully be more cohesive/easier for us to write. :D Scott/Forge have put Mars in charge of leading people around, so he's sort of the operator for the whole thing, seeing as he knows where everyone (even the students) are at all times, and has cameras in front of him and a headset on. So, if your pups need a little help, they can request guidance via headset. We do need to make sure that one of the blackhawks escapes so that Stryker survives, lol. So I think we may be at our limit. But feel free to destroy some Hummers. And for the record, just as in X2, the children are going to passage ways that lead AWAY from the school, under the woods and to the highway where they're just outside of town. So, no one is headed to the basement except a few (crazy) techies who need to be there (or people who don't feel like hiking it to town... *eyes Kiernan*).

2) Joan (our new Banshee!) is under the weather and will be tagging folks back as soon as she feels well again. Get better, Joan! ^_^

3) Minka (Scoot) will know be called 'Tempo' on missions, etc. I've changed her tag in both IC communities, so, that's that.

Mansion Attack Thread, IC Date: September 7th, 2009

OOC Date: August 19th, 2009 (yes, today!)

Anyway, this is a place for you to make comments about the thread, ask questions about locations/specifics and to let Leigh and I know who and what you plan to include and exclude. So, comment at will. But not the Will. He's busy fighting.

TO KEEP THINGS ORGANIZED: Please reply to a comment that your character could help turn into a thread (their roommate, a common Danger Room partner, etc). If two threads cross, unite them into one. We'd like to keep things as less confusing as possible.

So, to start a new area of the mansion or a new thread in general, click 'post a new comment'. It looks like this:

(Post a new comment)

To reply to a previous comment and continue a thread, find the bottom most reply (the latest one) and reply to that by clicking 'reply to this'. It will be in the bottom, left hand corner and look like this:

Thanks guys! Good luck. XD

Activity check + plot discussion.

Excluding Jordan, I just wanted to see who all was still around/active. I know time is getting short for a few of you, so I wanted to see what was up and if you still wanted to play. Please respond to this by Monday, if so.

As for the plot discussion - Leigh and I have been brainstorming today and beyond the Stryker stuff, well, we wanted to have some goals/plans. We tossed around a few ideas about Jean and who/what "the Phoenix" is, so that could all be lined up to use. Or we could save that until a later point (when it's even LESS convenient for the X-Men, lol). Here are some of our options - the first group of which can be used simultaneously, or with one of the latter, grand schemes.

The Basics:
• The Mutant Registration Act
• "X"
• Sentinels
• MRDs
• The Phoenix
• The Hellfire Club
• Morlocks
• The Mutant Massacre
• Psylocke/Kwannon
• The death of Xavier (power struggle for leadership?)

Grander Scale:
• The X-Men come out as superheroes (those who so choose) after being seen on the news fighting in swarms against the Sentinels during Stryker's second attack (personal fave of Beck/Leigh)
• Wanda transforms Xavier's into an Olympus of sorts, while humankind looks upon mutants as God-like (caused by the death of Pietro, maybe?) Mutants keep their memories and wonder why people are leaving them gift baskets all of a sudden. And why they're in togas (personal fave of Beck)
• Wanda creates the Savage Land
• Magneto "sets up" Genosha

Aug. 14th, 2009


Hello all. I just wanted to say that I'll be playing Magneto as more than an NPC in the future - a decision that no doubt urge Rob to pick up the Professor. I think he was scared Mags might go unchecked. Bwahahahaha! Anyway, lol, he'll eventually be coming to the mansion. I have his wanted scenes up. Comment here or there if you have any thoughts/requests/etc. I'm open to suggestion.

Secondly, I'm sure she'll be posting her own OOC with further details, but Jordan will be out of town this weekend and part of next week. Michigan, ho!

Thirdly, I've updated several of the pages to exclude an active Cyclops, as Chaku has decided to bow out as our Scott due to time constraints. I suppose Scott will be NPC'd by me (and anyone who wants to mention him) since we already have his journal ([info]seeing_red) and it's up to date with the filmverse/this game. I'll have to tweak it a bit, I think. It's more than likely that I'll end up taking him on if we don't get a replacement soon, so Leigh and Min (as well as Cross!), feel free to make your thoughts/opinions known. I'm open to suggestion, but I tend to prefer him to have loyalties to Jean, and be wooed by Emma, while Wolverine woos Jean. It's like it was PLANNED! omg. Anyway, lol, here's a parting message from Chaku so you all know what's goin' on. Thanks. XD

From Chaku: Hey guys. I just wanted to drop you a PM because I thought I was going to have more time this summer to get all RP-y, but I didn't. My summer semester just ended and now My fall semester is set to begin in less than a month, so it's about to get even busier. I don't think it's fair that I've been so inactive with Scott thus far and think I should let him go. I like this game, but I'm falling behind at my own game as well and don't think that's fair to my players or to you all. So I'm going to drop my claim on Scott. <3 Good luck with the game, it was amazing while I was here.
-Chaku [Scott]

Liberty Island Outline

The following will be an info!dump - a compilation of all the threads/pieces for the Liberty Island 'story arc'. Leigh and I would like everyone who wishes to be involved (or is for sure) to comment with their thoughts/hopes/suggestions.

FRIDAY (07-31-09, late night): Sabretooth hires Deadpool to help protect Magneto at Liberty Island, as well as with a kidnapping (of Mars and Zap). Deadpool agrees and they leave.

SUNDAY (08-02-09, late afternoon): Trance, Mars and Zap go to the mall in Westchester. Deadpool, Toad and Sabretooth sedate and kidnap Mars and Zap. Trance is let without transportation. He phones the mansion to let them know what's happened and for a ride back.

SUNDAY (08-02-09, late afternoon): While they were out, Mystique infiltrated the mansion and used Trance's appearance as a cover, since she knew for a fact he wasn't present. Raven sabotaged Cerebro and left. She relayed the information of the trio's departure from the school to her colleagues and they intercepted them at the mall.

SUNDAY (08-02-09, early evening): Senator Kelly will arrive at the school, having been kidnapped by Magneto and treated by his 'machine'. He escaped and will come to the school for (medical) help. He will be treated by Jean and Brian, and will explain to them about Magneto's plans. The Professor will go to Cerebro to locate Mars, Zap or anyone in the Brotherhood and will be injured due to Mystique's meddling with the machine.

SUNDAY (08-02-09, evening): Cyclops should decide to take a team to rescue their fellow X-Men and to attempt to stop Magneto from mutating the UN world leaders at the summit near Liberty Island. The team should be composed of: Himself, Jeanix, Storm, Diamond, Nightcrawler, Omen and Havok?. If anyone else would like their X-Man involved with this mission, please comment here.

The way things will pan out is up to everyone involved, but here are the facts...

Present Brotherhood: Magneto, Mystique, Sabretooth, Toad, Noir, Dukes, Deadpool (self-associated), Rogue?.
Present X-Men: Cyclops, Jeanix, Storm, Diamond, Nightcrawler, Omen, Havok?, Mars, Zap.

Mars and Zap will be unable to fight unless freed.
Emma and Jeanix's powers (telepathy) will not be able to be used against Magneto or Deadpool, and in turn, Emma cannot control minds while she is in diamond-form, so keep that in mind, baddies.
The Brotherhood will have placed Zap in/near the machine and threatened to kill Mars if she didn't power it. He should be chained somewhere near/on the torch.

Kurt would really, really like to bamf! Deadpool into the open water to get rid of him (for a while).
Omen and Nightcrawler would be a good team to face Deadpool.
Emma (or Storm) and Noir could be interesting adversaries.
Dukes will be sabotaging Magneto's plans at some point, so if you have any suggestions for time/actions, let me know.
Summers brothers/Sabretooth could be interesting.
Toad/Jeanix is canon. What.
