MG/Emma - half the girl i used to be

Gone this weekend...

No comp access, but I'll try to get back to tagging ASAP.

BTW? If you haven't read Alexis as Kitty? Go read the current Emma/Kitty thread that is making my poor Emma speechless, literally!! *fangirls!!*

After talking with almost everyone, the consensus is that we'd all prefer a posting order. If you don't know what that is, here's an idea:

Peter/Piotr posts something that says ((Open to Kitty & Emma)). This would mean that even though I'm super-excited to be able to tag him, I have to wait until Alexis does first as Kitty. Then me, then Peter, etc. This game isn't a quick tag-back-and-forth style like other comms. We'd like for you to get into your character's head, dig a little bit deeper, etc. Questions? Comments?

Anyway, have fun this weekend while I'm gone, feel free to get on AIM and plot with other players (since you don't need the mods for that!), and keep up the good work everyone!

Oops our bad!

Sorry that Eric & I didn't post that we would be uber-busy this weekend! (Actually, all weekends coming up are busy for us, FYI!) We're trying to go through and catch up everywhere now, slowly but surely, and also see what mod stuff might need to be done.

A question to everyone - do you care about/follow posting orders when you normally play? Or do you prefer not to have posting orders?

Mod stuff

Hey folks--

Just to keep everybody up to speed, Deadly Genesis is unfortunately one player less, as we no longer have our Stepford Cuckoos. Kristi, if you'd like to repost Rogue or tag her into one of the existing threads, feel free.

Life at the Institute

Some very good questions have come up regarding the details of how the X-Men characters function in the context of the Xavier Institute staff. We agreed that it would be a good idea to have some kind of official word on how they all work, now that we can have folks back in the mansion.

Since we're pre-M-Day (and assuming, just before), there are currently 182 students enrolled at the Institute, all mutants. Every student above a certain age is assigned to a training squad, of usually 6 members, with each squad having an X-Man as a mentor. That mentor is responsible for keeping tabs on his or her squad members, and is the first point of contact in discipline issues. Scott and Emma, in addition to mentoring squads, are also co-headmasters of the Institute, meaning they have final say in all school-related issues.

For the purposes of our game, we're going to keep three of those squads exactly as they appeared in comic canon (from New X-Men: Academy X).

The "New Mutants" (mentor: Dani Moonstar/Mirage): Elixir, Prodigy (co-leader), Surge, Wallflower, Wind Dancer (co-leader), Icarus

The "Hellions" (mentor: Emma Frost): Hellion (leader), Dust, Mercury, Rockslide, Tag, Wither

The "Corsairs" (mentor: Scott Summers/Cyclops): The Stepford Cuckoos (co-leaders), Dryad, Quill, Specter

The comics have specifically given names and members and mentors for other squads, but those are the main characters for that book, and generally the most often-seen students. If you'd like to give your character a squad, you can feel free to pick and choose characters from this page: under the heading "Xavier Institute Students" or make up your own student NPCs.

In addition to mentoring duties, the X-Men are encouraged (but as far as we can tell, not necessarily required) to teach at the Institute. For example, Scott teaches Civics and Field Tactics, while Emma teaches English and Telepathy. Whatever class(es) your character might teach (if he or she does so) is up to you. If you decide to give him or her a squad and/or a class, please post it here so everyone can keep tabs.

Hope that gives everybody some more stuff to work with!

Questions and silly nitpick - Thanks in advance

FIRST! - thanks in advance for your patience...
and now my questions!

1. In Kitty's last post she references Peter being a teacher. I can't find (in 1-12 of AXM )where it is said that he is a teacher. Is he a teacher now (or was he), and if so.. what does he teach. I am HAPPY to have him teach something. I can make him a teacher if he wasn't already.. If I do that, what is he a teacher of?

2. I posted a question on the xmen board, and I would say Pete has been in the whole for 2-3 years... Can I get an official(for this game) Mod ruling on this.

3. Similar question... How long was Peter back before they ended up in Genosha. I don't care how long it "really" was in the comic, I just need something here for the game. Like.. As of the time they are arriving back at the mansion from Genosha... Peter has been above ground for x number of days or weeks.

4. Rogue question!! - I assume this is a comic canon Rogue? what powers does she have? is she.. "I sucked Carol Danvers dry" Rogue? or is she differently powered.. or what?

5. ok.. enough with the questions sheesh.. ok 1 last one.. can someone very briefly outline some major things that happened while Peter was in the hole (genoshan.. genocide is one thing) are there some others.. major xmen things in that timeframe of.. however many years...

ok.. the nitpick.. and it's a good natured one... and and um... if it was explained someplace... I apologize...
in the comic ... they are in the Reed Richard's jet because of what had happened with the x jet. in our rp I think it is referenced as the x jet in the beginning. Do we say that danger never possessed the jet, or do we say that while she possessed it.. once she was gone the jet was fine.. etc.
Kitty Costume


Got my internet back! What a mess. I didn't like being forced to see how reliant I was on things like TV and internet, but seeing as I couldn't even do something like check the weather all week, it really showed me how much I use both. But anyway, I'm back! As per queenemma's last post, I'd be up for AIM chats, but I just need to know when so I can actually log on.

Question for those in the jet: Will there be a clear moment when we all reach the mansion? I mean, should we wrap up what's going on there so the jet ride can end?

Little update

Our Stepford Cuckoos player hasn't posted contact info, so here it is in case you need it:

RPG LJ : the_supermind
Characters : Celeste, Mindee and Phoebe AKA The Stepford Cuckoos
PB : I believe it is comic icons only, but correct me if I'm wrong.
Email : posabie @
AIM : Posabie

For those of you unfamiliar with these characters, here's a brief bio:

There were originally 5 girls - Sophie, Esme, Celeste, Mindee and Phoebe - but both Sophie & Esme died. Sophie overdosed on Kick, but was nudged toward it by her sister, Esme. Esme was killed by Magneto, leaving the other girls as the "Three-In-One". The girls were Emma Frost's prize students until Sophie's death (which they blamed on her initially), followed by Esme's attempted murder of Emma with a diamond bullet. The girls are able to merge their psychic powers into one "supermind" that amplifies their own energy. They often communicate telepathically to each other, finishing each others' thoughts, etc. They are still students at the school, as of "Astonishing X-Men" #12, and most anyone would know of them since they are quite remarkable.

Hope that helps some people! I've also contacted our Logan player - Robert - and he will put his intro post up ASAP.

Any other questions? Ideas? Plotting stuff you'd like to see? Would anyone like to have an AIM chat where we all get some plot bunnies going? Please let us know!

Our Kitty player - Alexis - is having some internet issues at the moment and that's the reason she hasn't been able to respond yet. :) She managed to get an email to me quickly to let me know, so I'm passing this all onto you folks!

We'll be contacting the other players who haven't posted yet, though, to make sure they are still interested.

let me know

I just posted my first ginormous post.. I am real unsure of it since He is interacting with kitty.. without having talked to Kitty's player... I tried to be real canon about it, but if that doesn't work for ANYONE, just let me know.. also.. it is a bit longer than may be my usual post, since it's the first Peter post.. etc..

etc. etc.
just let me know.. I am more nervous about this than I figured I would be.
