"...reported sightings of the fugitive mutant supremacist leader Claudine Renko remain unsubstantiated. A S.H.I.E.L.D. spokesperson assured the press that all plausible leads are being investigated, but declined to comment on her most likely whereabouts. Anonymous sources have sent News 10 the following photos, showing Renko or someone bearing a strong resemblance to her in a Mexico City cafe, and later in an airport near Cape Town, South Africa, leading to widespread speculation that she's on her way to Genosha. Anyone with knowledge of her whereabouts is again encouraged to contact..."
 
"...team of medical experts working alongside the Xavier Institute's Henry McCoy have put forth that the disease exclusively affects people with active X-genes -- in other words, mutants. While it has continued to spread like wildfire through District X and other mutant enclaves, no related cases have been confirmed among baseline humans. With the death toll at home rising and new cases beginning to be reported around the world, a travel advisory has been put out discouraging mutants from traveling overseas in hopes of slowing the disease's spread..."
 
"...Travel restrictions to the notoriously closed-off country of Genosha have been tightened even further in light of the mysterious virus affecting mutants around the world. In a personal statement, Magneto stressed that since the concentrated mutant population in Genosha puts them at greater risk from this disease, 'measures must be taken to prevent any contamination within Genosha's borders'. Many high-ranking Genoshan diplomats have gone further and offered their condolences to the families affected by the disease, as well as applauding President Kelly's executive decision to channel funding towards treatment and research of the disease. A number of Genoshan doctors and scientists have left the country to collaborate with the researchers studying the virus..."
 
"...vigils held around the country this weekend in memory of the virus's victims..."
 
"...meteorologists scratching their heads about the sudden storm near an Appalachian town in southern Virginia last week, where record levels of rainfall caused flash flooding and mudslides. Other nearby towns were completely unaffected, and experts say that the prevailing weather conditions don't line up with such a dramatic downpour..."
 
"...Senator Graydon Creed appealed to his major constituents during last night's primary debate with his usual hard line on social issues and mutants in particular. However, businessman Norman Osbourne has risen in the polls after claiming that Creed's proposed policies, including the Mutant Registration bill being debated in the House, don't go far enough. Osbourne promised that, if elected, he'll introduce legislation aimed at deporting all mutant foreign nationals to their home countries, drawing applause from the debate's live audience and an outcry from leaders of the mutant refugee community..."

"... since X-Day, it would appear that activity of both the Friends of Humanity and the Mutant Liberation Front have been largely contained. Authorities still urge caution, of course, but as far as the continuing violence is concerned, the streets are a little safer now. However, the leaders of both organizations are still at large. The FBI, along with SHIELD, have requested that any information to the whereabouts of MLF or FoH leadership be brought to them as quickly and discreetly as possible..."


"... holding her first concert since the violence broke out and her original tour was cancelled. Tickets to victims of anti-mutant violence were given entirely for free. Dazzler herself was quoted saying that now was a needed time for healing, and music plays an important role in that. She wants her fans to know that she is here for them, and she will do everything she can to help mutants still struggling in the wake of hatred and violence..."


"... Stryker has said that his vigil, continuing again after being released from the hospital, will continue until Claudine Renko, whom he holds personally responsible for the death of his son as well as the X-Day riots, is brought to justice. Senator Graydon Creed and the other Last Stand lawmakers have said they will stand with Reverend Stryker for the same goal. Creed went on to say that the only way from preventing something like X-Day from happening again is to pass the Mutant Registration Act, finally..."

The Passover Accords, as they are being called, were signed by both President Kelly and President Lensherr, sealing an agreement of non-aggression between the two powers, even if only temporarily..."

John Sublime plead guilty to all charges, and expressed his regret that his obsession lead to such horrible acts. He reiterated that all he wished for in his Third Species movement was for peace between human and mutant, and a better understanding of each other..."

WHO: Those selected for the mission, plus general attendees at the rally.
WHAT: The Mutant Liberation Front is having a major rally in District X tonight.
WHERE: District X
WHEN: Evening
WARNING(S): Will get violent.

The tension in the air was palpable. The crowd that had gathered was massive, many of them wearing MLF armbands and face masks. Signs were lifted, chants were heard, there was even a nearby bonfire with scarecrows being torched, their faces covered in photographs of Graydon Creed and William Stryker...

The stage set up was crude. There were only a few spotlights, and a rudimentary PA system. A few people had already spoken, but there was still a rumbling in the audience. They all knew that SHE was here. The woman who had thrown the first stone. A woman whose name they had all come to respect. They chanted for her.

Ren. Ko. Ren. Ko. Ren. Ko....

It was as if she was some sort of mutant messiah, and these were her disciples...


[[ The first top level will be for general rally mingling. The second top level will be for Xavier's peacemakers. The third for Emma's Hellions. And finally, after some time, a new top level will go up when the Friends of Humanity inevitably crash the party. Have fun! ]]

"... the hashtag has inspired several high profile mutants in the entertainment world, particularly mutant pop star Dazzler, to put up personal accounts of the discriminations they've faced growing up as mutants. However, the Mutant Liberation Front, or at least hackers claiming to be them, have seemingly hijacked the movement on several social media sites, using the hashtag while "doxxing", defined as "sharing the private personal information of an individual or group, anyone that has publicly spoken out against mutants. The internet has become a battleground like any city street..."


"... special diplomat Haller faced many questions arriving back in the United States today. She has stated she had no comments on Genosha's threat of war against the US. President Kelly's diplomatic relations with Genosha have largely been criticized as failures, and many in congress and in the public in general seem to be in favor of preparing for the inevitable..."


"... Reverend William Stryker, uncle to the late Donovan Zane, has lead a vigil lasting several days now on the steps of Congress and refuses to be moved until Mutant Registration has been passed. Public support is turning overwhelmingly in favor of registration as the nation mourns the young man, Donovan Zane, whose life was taken in the midst of a violent protest..."


"... with the coldest temperatures on record. Volunteers are urging everyone in District X to be extra careful as the season progresses, to regularly visit the shelters and soup kitchens, and to not try to brave the winter storms alone. They have also put out a mass call to anyone willing to help out, with food, blankets, and/or warm clothing..."


"... a nation on the brink of war. President Kelly addressed the nation saying that 2019 will not be a repeat of historical mistakes or tragedies. He says he refuses to believe the spirit of the American people are so willing to give in to bigotry and surrender to what is perceived as an inevitable war with Genosha. It can be stopped, he urged. He said we all have to look at ourselves and find the courage to do the right thing and love our fellow person, no matter what the circumstances. President Kelly continues to believe in his vision of hope for humans and mutants..."

WHO: Reki and anyone she knows
WHAT: A unique tradition and a way for her to play off expressing how she feels to people
WHERE: Wherever your character happens to be
WHEN: New Year's Eve
WARNING(S): May get sappy

If you know Reki, she's showing up at your doorstep or wherever you can be regularly found. A strange little nut rattle is pressed into your hand. Depending on your relationship to her, the color will be different.

"Here. They're kindof a tradition where I'm from. The different colors represent what you want to express to the receiver."

Yeah, she's playing it off all tsundere. It feels less soul baring/emotionally vulnerable that way to her.

[OOC: Depending on the replier, I'll choose a color for them; the color of the bell nut is different depending on what sentiment the giver wants to convey]

"...demonstrations quickly broke into violence as members of both Friends of Humanity and the Mutant Liberation Front attacked one another in various scuffles all throughout the evening in various locations around the US, particularly in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and Washington DC. Police have attempted to keep the situation under control, but neither group has made it very easy..."


"... President Kelly's return has also brought on several questions about the Genoshan situation and now the current strife in the US has effected those negotations. Kelly has simply stated that he has faith in the ambassadors still in Genosha and in the American people to come to a peaceful resolution on the mutant crisis..."


"... in an extremely rare interview, Shaw told Rosetta Riley that, in his view, Mutant Registration was the precipice of the not just the new decade, but what would shape the way historians looked at the early 21st century entirely. He said that while he regrets his company in their involvement in Project Wideawake, he still supports Registration on principle, he just feels the federal government has very little in the way of resources to enforce it the way it would be needed to fairness and liberty for mutant citizens...."


"... soup kitchens across District X were defaced overnight with anti-mutant graffiti, much of which parodying the now famous MLF logo. Some of them even had their food stocks tampered with, forcing organizers to scramble to make up for the damaged food..."


"... found dead after the protests cleared out, with the MLF logo spraypainted on his back. Relatives and mourners described the young man as a positive force in his community. He had many mutant friends as well, who described his death as unjustifiable and proof that the MLF is as dangerous as those they claim to fight against..."

WHO: John Sublime, "No Girl", the U-Men, and their unfortunate target... The Insitute
WHAT: Sublime's U-Men attack the school. They're aiming for the sublevels. Stop them at all costs!
WHERE: Throughout campus
WHEN: Past midnight, Wednesday-Thursday
WARNING(S): Gonna get violent.


The time was now. The media attention over his followers actions was too much. And after all, Xavier's little henchmen in London had figured it out. He was sure of it. There was no more time to bide. No more room for hesitation. It was act now, or the revolution would end in a prison cell, festering away in the disgusting care of this unclean world. Sublime couldn't stomach it. Couldn't fathom it. And whatever god help those who stood in the way of him and his dream of Homo Perfectus.

"All units are in place," Sublime whispered, peering out over the immaculate green, covered in moonlight, staring a drilling, piercing hole into the mansion. "Martha... it's your turn now," another whisper, as the floating apparatus before him, holding a strange glowing orb, began to shine even more brightly.

Just like that, the security systems failed. And just like that, Charles Xavier gasped and sent out a short, psychic burst to all X-Men, perhaps to everyone in the school, before he was overwhelmed and silenced, collapsing from his bed to the floor, stunned into sleep by a psychic force even he was not prepared for.

"This is it, Martha... our dream... U-Men! Bring me the Ashes of the Phoenix!" And like that, dozens of the men from the blurred video that Glamour and Spy had managed to obtain swarmed the ground, organic and mechanical, using a plethora of stolen mutant powers, attacked.


[[ This is it! Our first major action post, and in X-Men tradition, it's a direct attack on campus. Feel free to start your own threads. The U-Men will be NPC'd by the mods. Their ultimate goal is the filed away genetic samples of Jean Grey in the sublevels. They must be stopped, before someone uses them to integrate Jean's powers into a U-Man. ]]
