    Official POT Seal of Approval



    This RPG will take place before all the mutants of the X-Men universe met. Magneto has just left his friendship with Charles Xavior and has started to form a mutant army. Charles Xavior has finally founded his school for gifted children.



    The first part of the RPG will be the mutants forming sides. Since none of the mutants have met yet, other than Magneto and Xavior, it is your choice to whom you want to be allied with. Magneto is one choice and Xavior is the other.


    Rules:

    1. No GMing
    2. No posting other peoples damage
    3. No unappropriate language/situations ;)
    4. Only join if you will post at least once every two days
    5. You must be a mutant
    6. Some mutants are invincible, so if you choose one that is, I'll have to ask you to change your cahracter.
    7. I may have to limit your mutant powers if they get a little out of hand.
    8. Everybody dies, so if you get into a situation that there is no possible way of getting out of, just die. You can come back as another character.
    9. One character per person please.
    10. Use proper grammar, we're all over 13 here.
    11. RPG's are like storys, and each person plays a part of it. I'd like this RPG to be played in third person, meaning, Magneto then said, rather than, I then said. You are not the character, you are telling the story of the character. If you are having troubles figuring out what I mean by this, ask an verteran RPer.

    Here's mine:

    Name: Eric Magnus Lehnsherr
    Aliases: Magneto, Creator, Erik the Red, White King, Grey King, Michael Xavier, White Pilgrim
    Physical Description: [image=http://images.google.com/images?q=tbn:Km9m9bsKvcEC:heroes.chez.tiscali.fr/g-spotl/images/magneto.jpg]
    Strenth Level: Magneto possesses the normal human strength of a man of his own age, height, and build who engages in moderate regular exercise. Magneto can use his magnetic powers to increase his physical strength up through the "Class 100" level (being able to routinely lift over 100 tons) and thus can lift a maximum of 30,000 tons.
    Weapons: None
    Mutant Powers: Magneto is a mutant with the superhuman power to control magnetism. He can shape and manipulate magnetic fields that exist naturally or artificially. It is unclear, however, whether he must draw magnetic force from outside himself (if so, then he can do so over vast distances), or whether he can also generate magnetic force from within himself. Nor is it clear whether Magneto's power is psionic or purely physiological in nature.
    Although Magneto's power is not on the level of the Silver Surfer in his prime, it is for all practical purposes limitless. Magneto can lift a cargo freighter weighing 30,000 tons 50 feet into the air from a distance of 300 feet away. Moreover, Magneto can use his magnetic powers in more than one way simultaneously. He can completely assemble a complicated machine within seconds through his powers. He can erect magnetic force fields with a high degree of impenetrability around himself for protection. Although Magneto often gestures when using his magnetic powers, he can utilize them fully even when standing totally still merely by concentrating.

    Although Magneto's primary power is magnetism, he seems to have some ability to project or manipulate any form of energy that is related to magnetism. He can fire a bolt of electricity and create enough intense heat to destroy a metal door. Heat, or infrared radiation, is part of the electromagnetic spectrum, which also includes visible light, radio waves, ultraviolet light, gamma rays, and x-rays. Magneto can project any of these. He can create an anti-gravity field, and does so whenever he levitates a non-magnetic object. Hence, Magneto may be living proof of the long-sought Unified Field Theory that all forms of energy are related. However, Magneto almost always uses only magnetism since it is more difficult for him to manipulate other forms of energy.

    Magneto has exhibited powers of astral projection and telepathy, and has claimed to be able to control the minds of others. His abilities along these lines are minimal, however enough, perhaps to protect himself against mightier telepaths, but not of great use otherwise.

    Magneto's ability to wield his superhuman powers effectively is dependent upon his physical condition. When severely injured, his body is unable to withstand the strain of manipulating great amounts of magnetic forces.

    Abilities: Magneto is an expert on genetic manipulation and engineering, with knowledge far beyond that of contemporary science. He may be a genius in these fields. He can mutate humans in order to give them, superhuman powers, or create adult clones of human beings and then manipulate the genetic structures of these clones during their development. He has learned how to create artificial living beings.
    Magneto has mastered many technological fields as well: for example, he has designed magnetically-powered skycraft and spacecraft, complex robots and computers, and magnetically-powered generators. Magneto is an excellent hand-to-hand combatant.

    able to manipulate magnetic currents to gain total control over all forms of electromagnetism, allowing him to levitate and manipulate all objects made of metal, project concussive blasts and force fields, selectively generate heat and electricity, manipulate bloodflow to the brain to cause aneurysms or unconsciousness, and increase his power to absorb cold and electricity

    Real Name: Nathaniel Christopher Askani-son Dayspring Summers

    Powers: Cable is an awesomly powerful telekinetic and telepath. However, the majority of his power is concentrated on keeping his techno-organic infection from spreading.

    Significant reletives: Cyclops (Scott Summers, Father) Madylene Prior-Summers (Mother, Clone of Jean Grey, Deceased), Corsair (Major Christopher Summers, Leader of the Starjammers) Havok (Alex Summers, Uncle), Racheal Summers (Half-sister and god-mother in the futer), Slym and Redd Dayspring (Adoptive parents, actualy Cyclops and Pheonix in different bodies). -phew-!


    After Jean Grey was thought dead (See Dark Pheonix Saga), Cyclops meet Madyline Prior, a lookalike for Jean Grey. Cyclops married her, and together , they had a son, Nathan. When Jean Grey was discoved alive, Cyclops left Maddie and Nathan, and Maddie in turn took Nathan.
    Discovering she was a mere clone of Scotts true love as orchestrated by Mr. Sinister, she started calling herself the "Goblyn Queen", and tried to let a bunch of goblins and demons invade earth by sacrificing baby Nathan. The X-Men and the newley formed "X-Factor" whupped her, and Scott and Jean raised Nathan as thier own.

    As usual, tradegy struck. Apocalypse, realizing that Nathan could be a very poweful mutant, tried to kill him by subjuecting him to the Techno-Organic virus (A robotic virus which slowley assimilates its host into a robot). Cyclops could only save him by sending him 2000 years into the futer, into the arms of his time-traveling daughter from an alternate futer, Racheal (Now calling herself the Mother Askani). Not that he knew that, of course.

    A few years later, some gun-nut named CABLE started causing all sorts of trouble in Charles Xaviers name. He eventualy mellowed out a little bit, and took over the reigns of leadership of the New Mutants, renaming them X-Force, after Magneto went evil again. Cable dissapered soon after, and re-appeared with a new team calling themselves "Six Pack" Including Domino and his son from the futer, Tyler.

    Name: Alex Summers
    Aliases: Havok
    Physical Description: 6 feet tall, 175 pounds, Blonde Hair, and Brown Eye
    [image=http://www.scott.linkt.com.au/bios/havok3.jpg] (current costume in RP)

    Mutant Powers: Solar Generated Plasma Blasts. Havok has the ability to absorb ambient cosmic energy, and release it in waves that heat the air in their path, turning it to plasma. These waves emanate from his entire body unless he specifically controls their path (usually along the length of his arms). Havok is immune to the heat he generates, although it is not yet known if he is immune to other sources of heat. Havok's body constantly absorbs radiation. When his body reaches its maximum limit, he begins to emit the energy in negligible amounts. If Havok completely depletes his power, it takes about 16.5 hours to fully recharge.

    Bio: Alex is the youngest of two sons of Christopher Summers, a test pilot. His family was flying back from vacation when they were attacked by a Shi'ar scout ship. His mother pushed him and his brother Scott (Cyclops) out of the plane with the only available parachute. Scott and Alex believed their parents had died, until they were reunited with their father in their adulthood. The two boys were hospitalized with their injuries from their landing, and both suffered traumatic amnesia. Alex was discharged from the hospital two week later, while Scott remained in a coma. The two had no further contact until years later.

    Alex did not become aware of Scott's mutant powers or his role in the X-Men until his own powers began to develop. An archaeologist named Ahmet Abdol, also a mutant, discovered a link between himself and Alex. Unable to control his powers, Alex chose to remain in the Egyptian desert rather than returning with the X-Men. He was soon captured by mutant hunting Sentinels, and taken to their headquarters. Here he was given the code name Havok and a costume that monitored the build-up of energy within his body. When the X-Men freed him and the other captive mutants, Alex returned with the X-Men to begin training to control his powers.

    Name: David Cresh
    Aliases: Sandstorm
    Physical Description: Blue on blue eyes(think Fremen, Frank Herbert's Dune) Shock white hair, Light tan skin
    Weapons: none
    Mutant Powers: He can disolve himself into a whirl of sand and sandblast his enemys. He can simply blind them, or scoure the flesh off their bones. He has a unique silicone based body, becoming almost invinciable against physical attacks, even being able to "pull himself together" after the most brutal of attacks. His great weakness is his respect for life, he will never kill or fight unless given no other choice. He prefers to run if confronted.

    Hope this is ok.

    Well, first we need an Xavior.....


    For the people who chose either Waterfall, Sandstorm, or Inferno, are those actual mutants from either the comics or the TV show? I've never heard of them. You have to be a already stated mutant.


    We'll start soon.

    Well if this is before any of the comics/movies/tvshows took place, then isn't it possible that some mutants died before that, or went into hiding? Why must we be stuck within the pre-imposed boundries of someones elses immagination? That is like saying that Microsoft can make the things it already has better, but cannot create anything new. My creations are just as good as anything on paper, with the minor problem of my being artisticly challenged.

    I agree, but if It's a problem, someone make up a character sheet for Pyro, and I'll play him. That's why I picked Inferno, because I knew nothing about Pyro.

    If you just switch the name from Inferno to Pyro it'd be ok. The profiles are just about the same. :)


    On the subject of making your own characters, I just dont like the idea of having characters that no ones ever seen/heard of before. This is an Xmen RPG, there are plenty of other mutants to choose from. If you have any more concerns, please PM me.


    EDIT: Im waiting on four people then we can start.
