Xavier's School For Gifted Youngsters

The private boarding school in Salem Center, NY is in reality a training facility for heroic mutant advocacy and activism for peaceful coexistence between humans and mutants. Unknown to the public, senior students and graduates of the school have went on to become crisis intervention specialists affectionately known as the X-MEN.

In the dawn of the final decade of the 20th century, the first class of X-Men went missing with the lone exception of their field leader, Cyclops. Professor Charles Xavier, unable to locate his missing students, was forced to rebuild his team. This time, however, he looked beyond the walls of his academy and recruited mutants from wherever he was able in order to form an ALTERNATE CLASS. In time, it is hoped these new mutants will continue the fight for the future of peaceful coexistence between mutants and humans, and perhaps discover the fates of their predecessors.

X-MEN: ALTERNATE CLASS is rated 16+ for content. RPG Rating 2 2 2

The annual Tournament of Sims (called the WarGames this year) hosted by Ongoing Worlds had 70 entrants this year with only 25 winners. X-MEN: ALTERNATE CLASS was among them. Posts were submitted from last year around the time of the battle at the X-Mansion and the aftermath last year which is why 2022 features awards for 2021. Only two judges provided feedback which I'll pass along here:

Positive: Great use of established cannon and characters with newer ones as well as fresh ideas. Enjoyed Magneto's Speech. Excellent.
Improvement: Although a fan of JP's once you reach a certain number of participants it makes the post very unmanageable.

One thing they could work on is the posts with action sequences are a bit hard to follow as they involve a large number of characters in a large number of locations. Considering what is going on, it might be good to break it down into smaller posts with groups, but there was a lot of fluid motion which is hard to capture and contain.

For more information on this year's tournament, check out the link below. Congratulations!

With the publishing of Monster Mansion, I am pleased to announce the Episode 1: X-Odus draws to a close. Thank you to everyone who helped make it happen!

I wasn't sure exactly what to expect with this motley crew of ours, but that turned out to be much longer and far better than anticipated. I wrote up a little episode summary which can be read at that link for anybody who wants a little bow wrapped around our shared collaboration. Otherwise, clap each other on the back, try to avoid Leadfoot's duct tape, and let me know if there's anything else you'd like featured in addition to the new episode (Northern X-Posure) we've just started.

Remember, Episode 0: X Lang Syne allows for flashbacks, flash forwards, side-flashes, or whatever else, so if you've got an interesting idea, don't by shy with it.
