Unbeknownst to the X-Men, or anyone else, Emma Frost has made a deal with the closest thing to the real life devil, William Stryker himself. For the past year, he's been operating his Purifiers from the shadows, while keeping up an organized front with his company, the Crusade. Now, he's taking a more active role in order to achieve the ultimate goal, which is complete eradication of the mutant race.
Before he will mount a larger attack, he intends to learn more about what he's fighting, to see if there's anything he can use against them--and he's been just served free-of-charge test-subjects.
#1 - ABDUCTIONTHY KINGDOM COME
Jean Grey is planning on taking a few students to Coney Island for some much needed fun but as you can tell by the introduction above, it's not going to go as planned. The thread is going to take place at the end of their little trip and as you might've guessed by now, be promptly kidnapped for some good times.
First part of the plot pertains to:Please answer in the thread if you want to participate! Optional, of course!
There's two choices here: First one is to have your student be kidnapped and brought with, the second one is for a student to break off to warn the X-Men although preferably this is just one or two students. If everyone wants to have their character with throughout the whole plot, alerting the X-Men will be done regardless (Chuck will do a cameo of some kind).
This will be one thread to start with and once they've gotten to the facility, we can keep playing around with interactions with Purifiers and Stryker, as well as some testing. Once the first thread is done, there will be a rescue that will be two threads, read more below.
#2 - RESCUE
For an extended period time now, the X-Men has been retired
. The past couple of years they've watched the public opinion regarding mutants steadily deteriorate, but still Charles Xavier has kept them back, for their own safety. This though, is personal and hits close to home, giving them more than enough incentive to make themselves known again.
Thanks to Jubilee, the X-Men has been alerted of the abduction of Jean and the other students. With Logan tracking their scent, they find their way to Tarrytown Lighthouse, which is an entry-point for an underwater testing-facility. It's been abandoned for years, as well as forgotten but through former military contacts is how William Stryker has been able to find this location.
This part of the plot will split up into two threads. The X-Men will divide in two groups, one with the objective of distracting/subduing bad guys (armed and dangerous Purifiers) and the other group will search for the kids. At the point of the rescue though, the students will be unconscious to prevent a too crowded thread, that way the still ongoing thread with the students can continue without continuity-issues. Group 1
- main objective is to find and secure the students, although these things are never simple so they'll only find Joshua Foley and Jean Grey. They are going to be hanging from chains in the roof, both unconscious. Group 2
- main objective is to cause a distraction but will by chance, to raise the stakes, come across Shani Katzin and Jay Guthrie, both in separate testing rooms, also unconscious both of them.
The threads should start with them having arrived and entering the facility through the lighthouse. Both groups are likely to encounter Purifiers, who's armed with a variety of weapons and armor, ranging from flamethrowers to rifles and plenty of protective gear. If need arises of NPCs in form of Purifiers, let me (Ruth) know and I will help out for more chaos, as we do have an account for them to use.ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWERBRING THEM HOMEQuestions?
