Established in May 2003, X-Project is a journal-based RPG on Dreamwidth. We use a combination of in-character journals and third-person, co-written logs (think cooperative fanfic). Our players hail from a combination of the comics fanfic lists, Livejournal RPGs, and a variety of RL backgrounds.
We're looking for active players who want to write their own stories collaboratively with others while utilizing amazing characters and their even more amazing powers. We work as a group to bring major, gamewide plots to fruition while also encouraging smaller plots and one-on-one, two-player logs. We have a central reading community where you can keep up with everything that's going on, two OOC communities on DW for public and player-only discussions, and a thriving Discord community for players to share ideas, ask questions, or just chat about their day.
We take inspiration from all Marvel properties: comics, television, and movies. Want to bring some of the X-Men: Apocalypse characters into the present day and see how they work? Please do! Loved the mutants in Runaways? So did we! Character canonically dead? Doesn't matter! Even the most obscure Marvel character is appable, provided they're a mutant and have a reason to stay at an institute for mutants. There's even precedent for giving a non-mutant powers to make them playable! Additionally, we have a variety of ways to play - you can be a superhero with the X-Men, a spy with X-Force, a private detective with X-Factor Investigations, or a dimension-saving oddball with eXcalibur!
If you have any questions about the game, Phase 1 versus Phase 2 characters, the application process, or anything else, please feel free to contact us. We're happy to help in any way possible. We encourage all kinds of activity and appreciate all voices who want to contribute to our ongoing story.
Please Note:</b> The MCU's Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man, and Thor are modsock NPCs and unavailable for applications. That said, if they're needed in a plot and you're a player, don't hesitate to put your name in the ring for socking duty.
