Plot Type: Micro Plot

Mutants and those with powers run this world. Yet not everything is as perfect as it seems. Some will be living the dream, others will awaken and know that this isn't the real world. Who will you be?

The world is a very different place. Homo sapiens are the minority, and live as second class citizens. Mutants and those with powers rule the world. Opportunities, wealth, status and prestige are tied to those with extraordinary abilities.

This is the world of The House of M.

In the ‘80s one mutant came to the forefront, and a rallying cry came out as Magneto called the world’s mutants to unite and to fight against the corrupt system that held them down.

Some twenty odd years later, a mutant-human war later, and mutants (and those allies with powers) now rule the world. The roles have reversed with the release of an international conspiracy to rid the world of the X-gene and regulate powered individuals. The world is now a mutant/powered Utopia. With people trying genetic splicing and other interesting ways to fake being more than just human.

Magneto, King Magnus, now rules the world from his seat in Genosha, an island paradise that is a master of engineering, culture, art, science and the now center of world’s main super powers. Along with his family.

While a few countries remain independent (Wakanda, Latveria, Japan and Egypt) the US and other large super powers fell in the mutant-human war. Soon after, machines and tech that allowed anyone with even the slightest hint of the X-gene or other latent powers to become awakened, leading to a boom of powered and mutant people alike.

Mutopia is the cornerstone of power, celebrities and other rich and powerful individuals in the US. While now, humans, the unpowered and poor, are clustered into ghettos like Sapien town. Even worse, are the human centered ‘re-education’ centers where human ‘criminals’ and miscreants are sent to become reprogrammed to something more affable to the new world order.

Yet there are grumblings of rebellion in this house of cards. Some humans and powered individuals know the world is wrong. That something must be done about the House of Magnus, before humanity goes extinct forever. These rebels might be willing to fight, but at what cost? Especially with rumors of genetic bombs that can target mutant genes, or hints that the few free countries on the planet might yet band together against the House of M?

Either way, there will be giant robot death matches and some excellent entertainment. In this dream within a dream, who will awaken from this dream to the reality?


RP Hooks

Here are some ways you can get involved:

OOC: This is a vaguely House of M inspired plot. There will be creative license that will tweak the world of House of M to make it more available and open to those characters that are not Marvel properties, or even those that might’ve been dead in the original comics. There might be stories that work within the comic origins, but these are entirely based on who is interested in being part of the plot. All of this does not take place in the main universe, so don’t feel tied down to limit your rp (it takes place over a single night icly).

Anyone is welcome to join, powered or not, just give me or Scott a poke, as he is helping run scenes as well. There will be events posted for major events, as well as more individual scenes for those interested.

This is meant to be a free-form plot, open sandbox, where people are encouraged to play with and in the wider world of The House of M as they want (You do not need me to run things if you want to play around in, just make sure to tag the log).
