New Comm?

I come offering the notion of a new kind of land comm geared only for a certain fandom, or a certain type of fandom. A land comm is basically a community where members are divided into teams and take part in fulfilling certain challenges, usually varied amongst fan fic, art, captions, and games, to see who can reach a certain score point first, but though the members are divided and all are trying to bring their team to reach the goal first, they remained united in their love of the fandom. For the type of land comm I'm suggesting, members would still be divided into teams and would still be trying to see who could score the big number first, but the challenges would all be fic based. Read on if interested.Collapse )

I was on Marvel.com earlier, perusing the comics that will come out tomorrow, and I saw Husk #1! After an all too brief moment of excitement I read the description and realized the book has nothing to do with dear Paige. :( Booo!

Anyone else miss seeing the Guthries in the comics? Sure, Sam's in New Mutants, but what happened to all the rest?

Hey y'all, friendly neighborhood moderator here. I realize I've been slacking in my duties, namely in keeping this comm lively. I hereby rededicate myself to the comm and will be looking to shake this place up a little! I'll see what I can do to breathe some life into the place. I know we're small, but we can still have fun! If anyone has suggestions, feel free to comment or drop me a PM.

My reason for posting this is the realization that our only posts over the last few months have been pimpage for other communities. I don't want to see this become a dead comm used only for advertising space. So, starting now, all community promos must be approved by a mod before posting. Failure to comply will result in said promo being deleted.


Let's have some fun!

On that note, fic/art/discussion prompt: In the original New Mutants series, Sam's teammates visited the family farm a number of times. During Generation X, Paige is seen at her family's home only once, with Jono. What do you think would have happened if the GenXers had visited the Guthrie home?
Out Of Nothing X-Men RPG

An X-Men Movieverse Forum RPG - Set after X-Men 3

Several years have passed since the battle at Alcatraz, but tensions have remained bubbling from opposing forces in both the mutant and human forces. However, there has been no wide-spread conflict for a while, and many are hoping the peace will linger. Xavier's remains a place for mutants in need, young and old alike, while many mutants have also set up their own homes in the state of New York. This calm isn't going to be long-lasting, however, as there's news on the wind of a virus coming to American shores, a virus too fast and too deadly to be natural. And what's worse, is that it's target is mutantkind.

Known as the Legacy Virus due to its specific genetic target; symptoms include headaches, fever and sickness, the signs akin to that as the common influenza. Europe is already suffering from the pandemic, and there are fears it could kill mutants all over the planet. The rumblings between the human and mutant divide are growing stronger in light of this virus. However, while mutants are the most susceptible, a few humans carry an undeveloped x-gene that makes them vulnerable to contracting the sickness. There is a 60% chance of death if the virus is contracted, while others may recover, or some with stronger immune systems are able to avoid the worst of the virus' symptoms. The length of time between first symptoms and possible death varies between individuals, depending on their health and immunity strength. There is currently no available cure, but scientists are working as fast as they can to try and combat the illness. Military organisations are preparing to police the streets to aid regulation, while the government is considering a series of systems and monitoring with the medical authorities to try and control the virus. Quarantines are currently on a small scale, but are preparing for the worse. The Mutant Registration Act is looming as the President prepares to declare a State of Emergency.
