I'm going to be my own kind of princess
On April 27th, 2018 The Mad Titan named Thanos fulfilled his life's mission. It was a snap not heard but felt throughout the universe. It was felt as a sudden death for half of all life ; grief and chaos befell the other. The survivors were not comforted by the years after wherein nature was revitalized.
Five years passed, and there was another Snap which brought back all who were lost; and The Universe rejoiced.
On Earth something else happened as a consequence of it being the nexus of three uses of The Infinity Stones. The stones had granted powers to humans in the past, and when used in concert on a grand scale such a thing was inevitable as their energies washed over the globe and out to the rest of the universe. Some saw instantly they had been enhanced; others would not know until they became parents to truly gifted children.
The Earth was by then no stranger to these fantastical beings. They raised many of the same questions as those centered on The Avengers, and newer more uncomfortable points of if they need to be regulated, and how that should be done. The Sokovia Accords needed to be revised and expanded.
This is the story of the individuals faced with the choice of accepting these new Accords, or rejecting them.
So this is the basic premise. The RP starts 4 years after the 'Rebirth', when the universe was restored thanks to the efforts of Earth's Avengers. There will be multiple groups in play, some pro-Accords and some opposed to it. One of the main groups will be one helping those superpowered beings evade the enforcers of the Accords. It will be based in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with an additional component: Mutants. Humans who have had their DNA mutated or a mutant gene activated through the 'snap'. We have a number of plots we could go through.. I mean we have practically the whole of the Marvel universe to play with. But the struggle and oppression of those with powers will be an overarching idea.
Players are allowed two characters, (1) Canon and (1) Original Character or both can be either.
Infinity War (IW) refers to the period of time between Thanos snapping half the universe out of existence to his final death.
Pre-IW characters are people who were alive and had their powers before those events.
Post-IW characters can have been alive prior but did not have their powers.
Canon and Originals can be either of these, with this stipulation.
- If claiming a Pre-IW character you will have to work with us to best explain what they were doing in the lead-up to those events why they did not participate or were mentioned. Please note we won’t accept that someone like Doctor Doom “Just didn’t feel like getting involved and did his own private thing until now he just feels like it.”
In short we want to give everyone the opportunity to play a character canon to the Marvel Comics universe in the MCU, or an original character with elements of what is partially canon to the MCU. But we don’t want overpowered or overplayed characters to bog down the narrative.
Questions? Please let us know! We very much look forward to crafting this story with you!
