Welcome to Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters

Charles Xavier had a dream, a dream that one day mutants and humans would share this world as equals.

Twenty years ago, Charles Xavier achieved his dream.




STORY: After a long struggle, mutantkind and humankind were able to finally come together peacefully thanks to the efforts of Charles Xavier. To achieve this goal he combined the goodwill of his X-Men team with marketing and advertisments to create the idea of mutant as celebrity. Using this newfound fame, his dream was finally achieved and his School for Gifted Youngsters became a franchise.

Twenty years later, the youngest students at his school have all grown up to become to next generation of X-Men, while an even younger generation has come to the schools seeking help to control their powers. While there are schools all over North America and parts of Europe, the original Westchester Academy remains an elite academy, which serves as the training grounds of the next generation of X-Men. The students at this academy are the best of the best, many of which are the children of former X-Men themselves.

However, although the two races are at peace, it does not mean the world is yet safe for mutants. Various mutant hate groups, although small in size, still exist and a new, more radical, Brotherhood of Mutants has just begun to make their presence known, in deadly ways.



ABOUT THE GAME:
This is a high caliber role-playing game loosely structered around the X-Men Comicverse. The players in the game take on the roles of originally made mutants who are enrolled at Xavier's School. The RPG will focus on action-based missions, social character interaction and being thrust into the public limelight. The media will play a vital role in this RPG, many actions that a player does may end up in the tabloids under such headings as "Alcohol Use Rampant at Xaviers" or such things like that.

This game runs rapidly, not unlike a comic book. Chapters are like storyarcs and a couple of games would go together to make an "issue." If you are not prepared to do a comic-heavy RP, then please do not join. We are looking for people who can juggle both combat and character development at a rapid pace. Information on the setting can be found here

CHARACTERS:

We are currently accepting applications for the following types of characters

TEACHING STAFF
The teaching staff of Xavier's School for Higher Learning are comprised of various retired X-Men who have dedicated their lives to working with the next generations of X-Men. These are all to be canon X-Men characters such as Emma Frost, Cyclops, Kitty Pryde, etc.

X-MEN
The current roster of X-Men are comprised of former students who have worked their way into the position. They will also be responsible to an extent for helping the current students in the field and with various assignments. These characters can be either canon or original. We will also allow characters from the original "Xavier's School" game to be brought in as adult X-Men. These will be characters such as Jubilee, Husk, Cannonball, Moonstar, Hellion, X-23, etc

STUDENTS
The students at this particular school are all original characters, many of whom are "legacy" characters, meaning they are the children of canon superheroes. These can be the children of ANY Marvel Superhero, or can simply just be original characters with no ties to canon.

BROTHERHOOD OF MUTANTS
The new, younger, more radical Brotherhood of Mutants are the most diverse group, allowing original characters, legacy characters AND canon characters.

THE AVENGERS
The Avengers, the Earth's Mightiest Heroes, are now available as characters as well. For the most part, we are looking for Canon characters to fill in the roster, but will be open for exceptional OCs.
