Plot Type: Macro Plot

Beginning with a single and deadly act of terror, the world once again begins to cast its suspicious gaze on the powered individuals around the globe.

What do you do when someone has the power of an atom bomb locked away in their genetics? How do you protect yourself when some unknown stranger has the ability to control your very thoughts? After nearly three years of a fairly even keel, these issues have come surging again to the fore in American thought and politics.

Meanwhile, the rest of the international community is very keenly observing, looking at the U.S. as the bellwether of the future of politics and policies for the powered community.


RP Hooks

Here are some ways you can get involved:

• Public Events! This TP will have plenty of them and they are the easiest way to get involved, so please keep an eye out for the public events that make the most sense for your characters.

• Are you an investigative sort? We have two terrorists out there who need finding so that they can face justice.

• Are you a social activist? There's definitely a wide swath of people here who have their rights jeopardized.

• Are you a mover and shaker who wants to push or fight registration behind the scenes?

• Are you someone who wants to help cause some chaos to express your feelings against registration / humans / whatever-cause-you-want-to-hitch-up-to-whatever-this-is that the Maximoff twins started?

December 15, 2017: Holly and Hellfire

The season is in full swing, and the Hellfire Club is known for its lavish soirees. The HFC's Yule Cigar Party is a ever-so-slightly more public event than is typically their habit, where members can drink, smoke, rub elbows with their fellow rich snobs, and bring a friend.

Take out the finery! It's time to indulge!

November 24, 2017: All For Transparency!

GMs: Emma Frost, Pietro and Wanda Maximoff. In the wake of the gala attack weeks ago, someone has (with suspicious expedience) gotten together the permits required for a formal protest. On the agenda? Changing hearts and minds to embrace a message of inclusion and transparency. Of course, we're talking about the transparency that can only come of required registration for the powered community.

Because required registration of a minority always breeds a spirit of inclusion, right?
