WHERE: On any television, radio, or computer screen
WHEN: All week
WARNING(S): If a thread goes into warning label territory, either throw it in the subject line or take it to a separate log.

"... uncertain of whether or not wanted Mutant Liberation Front leader Claudine Renko is alive or dead. The FBI offers no comment at this time, and attempts to find source's in Xavier's Institute of Higher Learning, where the incident took place, have also turned up nothing..."

"... have called for Charles Xavier to be subject to government investigation. Creed said that the citizens of the United States can no longer trust mutant institutions in America, and that Xavier's willful harboring of Claudine Renko, and the violence that occurred there, is proof that said trust no longer exists...

"... plans to hold a concert in Central Park and is offering free admission and VIP passes to anyone currently living in District X, as well as the students and faculty of the Xavier Institute. Dazzler said that she spent part of her teenage years in District X, and Xavier gave her a safe place to live until her music career took off. She wants to give back to those that supported her, in their time of need..."

"...responded to the rumors of Claudine Renko being alive and having been given asylum in Genosha, stating that they have a publicly known policy of offering citizenship and sanctuary to all mutant refugees, Claudine Renko herself has not applied for citizenship within their borders. We remind our audience that as part of the Passover Accords, Genosha and the United States are both required to keep public record of their immigration policies with regards to mutants..."

"... so far have stated that only mutant patients have reported symptoms of the new virus spreading within District X. Leading medical experts are still researching the pathology, but feel that there is no panic needed, and that the medical community was prepared for the possibility of mutated viruses that have evolved alongside mutants..."

WHO: Students and faculty of the Institute, plus some unfortunate SHIELD agents caught in the crossfire
WHAT: Sinster did something, ah... sinister... to Martha, and now the school security systems are attacking anyone and everyone that might interfere with his um... sinister... plans.
WHERE: The Institute
WHEN: STILL ON THE 25TH. TRUST US.
WARNING(S): Violence hooooo

As a reminder, there are THREE ways to be involved with this event:
1. Help the SHIELD agents on the front lawn survive against the school security systems! This will be combat heavy and will involve NPC assists from Nick Fury

2. Help protect other students, and those who can't fight, get to safe places! Not every section of the school is as automated as others and there are places that Sinister's infection of the security systems hasn't reached. This can be combat heavy or not at all, and will involve NPC assists from Storm

3. HELLIONS your girl No Girl needs help. Also the Professor and Logan. Your job is to head to the sublevels and break in to the most heavily secured area of the school and stop whatever is causing things to go haywire, and possibly stop Sinister himself from whatever he has planned. As usual, you will be assisted by Emma.

WHO: Director Fury, Xavier, Logan, Renko, and someone else...
WHAT: The time as come for Renko to turn herself in
WHERE: The Institute
WHEN: ACTUALLY ON THE 25TH, WE PROMISE
WARNING(S): Violent imagery

SHIELD Quinjets made surprisingly little noise. The one that landed itself right on the Institute lawn was almost silent, only making the most noise as it began preparations to land and empty outs its load of heavily armed agents, and of course Director Fury himself. As they emptied out onto the grass, he turned his gaze towards the impossible to ignore statue of Jean Grey, and the emblem below that marked this place as the supposed sanctuary it was to all who sought it.

He didn't look happy. He shouldn't be. This wasn't the sort of job he liked doing, even if it was a matter of national security. He and Charles had worked amicably for years and years. He had turned his blindside to the man so many times when the activities of the X-Men went into legally questionable territory. But his hands were bound... And he had no more choice.

Xavier and Logan met him on the lawn. Alone.

WHAT: The news of the world, brought right to your school!
WHERE: On any television, radio, or computer screen (assuming they're on a news site)
WHEN: All week
WARNING(S): if a thread goes into warning label territory, either throw it in the subject line or take it to a separate log.



"... 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..."


"... Gabrielle Haller claiming that she and Genosha leadership have come to an agreement to stall potential international aggressions. 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..."


"... was released from SHIELD custody today and will stand trial for multiple accounts of fraud as well as the attack on the Xavier Institute of Higher Learning. 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! ]]

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. ]]
