Gods' Games

God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players (i.e. everybody), to being involved in an obscure and complex variant of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time. (view logs)


Friends Of Humanity

Sticklers for the norm have taken it upon themselves to join forces with one another, calling themselves the 'Friends of Humanity'. Their tactics are harsh, their message is brutal, and their delivery is murderous. They will be heard. They will be felt. Woe to any Mutant who stands in their way. Will they be stopped, or will the death toll of the innocent continue to rise?

Artifice and Selection

Someone's been experimenting on mutants.

Whether they've escaped or someone's letting them loose into the world for their own purposes, a series of incidents slowly reveals mutants who have been altered through surgery and strange science. Some have been made more powerful. Some have been transmogrified into something far, far from human. Some are just victims, pitiable things begging for release.

They all agree on a single detail - one man is behind it all and that man has plans for mutantkind. And some members of mutantkind in particular.

Sometimes evolution needs a push. (view logs)

Them!

Top10_1950s_them.jpg

There's a new plot in town! Several people have experienced it first hand, but if you've missed it, it's called Them! and it's being run by Anya (me!).

So there's a villain called Beatrice. She was in the Bugle. Her power is that she grows insects to be really big, like ants and beetles the size of cars. And she controls lots of them.

So! If you feel like having a scene where you battle some giant insects, feel free. Most them are bullet proof, and super strong. Feel free to do with that as you will. Just tag your scene for the Them! plot page please.

Beatrice and her named lieutenants will be reserved for when I'm running a scene, but any other bugs are fair game. Feel free to let me know if you want something run, or if you want to borrow a lieutenant. We can work something out.

Have fun!

***Since it came up today, feel free to describe big, car-sized bugs as weighing anywhere from 2-4 tons, with beetles on the heavy end, and skinny stuff like ants, or fliers, on the low end. For storytelling, assume the fun side of things: if the normal bug can lift heavy loads, so can the big one, even more! If it's super fast, it's probably still fast.

1)If you're having fun, you're doing it right.

2)If you're doing math, refer to item #1.

(Plot open to all November 2016. Check with Anya for more information!) (view logs)

Paperclip

In the late 1940s, an untold number of brilliant minds who were loyal to (or, at least working for) the Nazi party were all convicted of war crimes. They were incarcerated for their varying crimes against humanity and their genius was removed from the world. Now, almost twenty years later, NATO seems to have concluded that their brilliance is too important to have lost to decades old loyalties. With the air and space programs coming up in the world, the competition between the east and west about who will reach the moon first, and various other threats greater than human nature, it has been decided that certain repentant scientists can be freed in exchange for their service to humanity.

Now, SHIELD has been assigned five ex-Nazi geniuses to both babysit and assist in creating great scientific endeavors. While many in SHIELD are unhappy — several members having been the ones to put some of these scientists behind bars — NATO has not given SHIELD an option. SHIELD now must figure a way to baby sit these geniuses without making it look like they are still being imprisoned. Will this risk SHIELD's future directives? Will they be able to control the scientists enough to protect the world? What great discoveries will come out of these newly freed minds? Stay tuned to find out… (view logs)

(R rating.) (view logs)


Lethal Magnetism

A series of carefully orchestrated paperwork errors have misdirected nuclear weapons from military bases all over the continental United States, combining into an unthinkable result: fifteen hydrogen bombs, stolen.
