Comic Based X-Men RPG!!
It is a dangerous time to carry the X-gene. M-Day has depowered all but a few hundred mutants. Newly strengthened mutant hate groups threaten all those who are left. A mutant messiah has been born and hunted. Xavier’s School has been destroyed ….again. This time, it seems that Xavier’s dream has been destroyed with it. The X-Men are left searching for a new dream to believe in and a new war to wage. After relocating across the country, they’re attempting to rebuild their team, their lives and their dream. In San Francisco, they've found a new home for all mutants and new allies in a city they've sworn to protect, but old enemies are around every corner, threatening to end the new dream and new team the X-men are building... out of nothing.Fandom:

Academy-X Unlimited welcomes roleplayers who love characters from the X-Men universe. This includes the wider network of mutant superhero teams that at one time or another have trained, allied, or fought with the X-Men. Aside from your pick of X-Men students and alumni, you can join up as a squad member from New Excalibur, Generation-X, X-Factor, X-Force, Hellions, New Mutants, or other teams from days of future past... We do it this way so the genre is focused enough, but the options to interact with other mutants are near limitless.
Continuity and timeline sets us before the events of "M-Day". No mutants have been de-powered. Though certain squads may have been decommissioned over the years, they never stay shut for long. This is your opportunity to join a new team or breathe life into an old one. We equally support canonverse as much as movieverse, but a healthy understanding of comic history is encouraged as we tend to defer to canon. We've been playing these characters for over ten years, we love the books and movies, and we're looking for interested folks to come join us!
When it comes to sowing conflict into the game, we'll manipulate the basic political, social, and environmental factors of the universe. The rest is up to you. There's no big story arc that limits your possibilities or forces you into an established plotline. (We respect that other games need that but it's not for us.) The world is yours to explore. The other squads are there for you to pay a visit. There's no one telling you to stay on the same squad forever.
Our moderating team believes in the importance of running a friendly community - we like to keep our game fairly relaxed, flexible, and simple. Whatever your roleplay experience...we prefer giving other writers like you ample creative freedom to take your characters in whatever direction you wish. Thanks for checking out our game and we hope you join us in helping to build a solid RP community!

An X-Men Movieverse Forum RPG - Set after X-Men: The Last Stand
HOME | AVAILABLE CHARACTERS | RULESSeveral years have passed since the battle at Alcatraz, but tensions have remained bubbling from opposing forces in both the mutant and human forces. However, there has been no wide-spread conflict for a while, and many are hoping the peace will linger. Xavier's remains a place for mutants in need, young and old alike, while many mutants have also set up their own homes in the state of New York. This calm isn't going to be long-lasting, however, as there's news on the wind of a virus coming to American shores, a virus too fast and too deadly to be natural. And what's worse, is that its target is mutantkind.
Known as the Legacy Virus due to its specific genetic target; symptoms include headaches, fever and sickness, the signs akin to that as the common influenza. Europe is already suffering from the pandemic, and there are fears it could kill mutants all over the planet. The rumblings between the human and mutant divide are growing stronger in light of this virus. However, while mutants are the most susceptible, a few humans carry an undeveloped x-gene that makes them vulnerable to contracting the sickness. There is a 60% chance of death if the virus is contracted, while others may recover, or some with stronger immune systems are able to avoid the worst of the virus' symptoms. The length of time between first symptoms and possible death varies between individuals, depending on their health and immunity strength. There is currently no available cure, but scientists are working as fast as they can to try and combat the illness. Military organisations are preparing to police the streets to aid regulation, while the government is considering a series of systems and monitoring with the medical authorities to try and control the virus. Quarantines are currently on a small scale, but are preparing for the worse. The Mutant Registration Act is looming as the President prepares to declare a State of Emergency.

|Mutants are gladiators.|
After the death of Charles Xavier, Revolve became the home for all mutants, whether they like it or not. Stripped of their rights, fitted with collars and powers suppressed until their matches, life on Revolve is difficult and rigid. Their days are spent training for fights, working at the island's amusement park or dreaming of some day earning the outrageous sum of money with which to buy their freedom.
What would you do? Would you play the game? Fight the system? Start a revolution? Plot your escape?
The future of mutantkind rests in your hands.

a movieverse role playing game
|Thursday, December 11th, 2008|
Let the Tournament begin!
There is still time to get into the game before the big tournament next Saturday. Mutant against mutant. Are you
strong enough to beat the King Fischer's pet?
|Welcome to Revolve...|
Man, I see...the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see squandering. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our Great War's a spiritual war... our Great Depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars. But we won't. And we're slowly learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.

Xavier's students role play.
Just trying to spread the word. We've got a great little community here and would like to get some more people involved. This role play focuses on the students. Teacher characters are mainly used for plot points. There is a two character limit per role player. If you have two characters... one MUST be from the comics and one MUST be an original creation. We want originality AND commitment to the source material. This group is really fun and we've got alot of major story arcs to set up. Hope to see some of you.
