X-Men rEvolution is a MUSH set in contemporary New York City. Our canon is free of years of convoluted comics canon. Our canon has a slightly more real-world feel to the setting than many other MU's geared away from the higher ranges of power - at least, as real-world as mutants with superpowers running around New York City can be. The tangled interplay of power moves back and forth as mutants and humans struggle for different goals: equality, mutant supremacy, human purity. Friends turn on friends, and enemies can be allies. It is a time where only a few can turn the path of history. Will you be one of them? Open since 2012, X-Men: rEvolution has held over twelve million words of roleplay across more than 4400 scenes. If you're looking for a place where roleplay happens, you've found your home with us.
Five decades ago, mutants were barely heard of. Four decades ago, rumours of people with superhuman powers were spoken of in hushed whispers, tabloid scares, superstitious warnings. Then the scientific research of Dr. Moira MacTaggart published out of Muir Island rocketed the knowledge of the X-Gene into scientific fact, and mutants were pushed from whispered rumour into a household word. Not, to be sure, a welcome household word. As the buzz spread, from nation to nation, continent to continent, countries were widely conflicted on how to deal with the mutant issue. Issue, problem, menace, even the language used to talk about mutants was telling. While a select minority saw them as the next stage of human evolution, a growing and vocal majority called mutants a problem, a danger, a threat to the very existence of society. New York City has long been a cultural hub -- of America and of the world. When it comes to mutants it is no different. In a city of millions of diverse people, it is easy -- or, at least, easier -- for a feared and hated minority to have a chance at blending in. From all over the world mutants have flocked to the city, hoping for a chance at a normal life. In the wake of Magneto and his Brotherhood of Mutants? recent attack at Liberty Island, though, that blending in is getting harder. Anti-mutant sentiment is reaching a fever pitch. While most mutants -- and most humans -- just want to keep their heads down and live a quiet life, there are those on both sides of the fight gearing up for what they see as an enormous threat to their way of life. Where will you stand when the revolution hits? --- X-Men rEvolution is an X-Men Movieverse MUSH set in contemporary New York City, shortly after the events of the first X-Men movie. With a movieverse backdrop, we both come unencumbered with years of convoluted comics canon, and also a slightly more real-world feel to the setting. Only slightly, though: we?re still running around New York playing mutants with superpowers; just without the aliens and magic. Set just after Magneto?s failed attack on the city, the New York of rEvolution is a city that is shifting towards the darker edge of the spectrum, especially when it comes to life for mutants. With a game geared away from the highest edges of power ranges, we?re looking to explore not just the interactions between superpowers and combat, but the interplay between human nature, social justice, and a city where one wrong interaction could push it over the edge. We have just opened in December 2012 and are welcoming players in all factions!
