Okay, since we've now had two emails concerning the x-men canon, we have to now revisit this plot and address the game as a whole.
We've been asked why we did not bring this plot to the game as a whole to allow it to be debated, and the answer to that is a simple one. For starters, we have run other games in the past (together and apart) where making plots like this open to voting and discussion has either resulted in in-fighting, or absolute deadlock (or disinterest). Also, when we've made huge choices like this in the past (for example: allowing a large group of pups be heavily involved in a government that effects the whole game), there were no complaints. We assumed that meant that as long as no one was directly effected by the plot, no one would mind.
Clearly we were wrong.
As a result we have returned to the plot and have made some tweaks. These tweaks are not up for discussion as they are now part of the game rules.
New game rule: When bringing a pup who's background has game wide effects on other pup's pasts, they MUST come from an alternate time line or parallel world. No exceptions.
In the case of the xmen plot, all events listed on the previously linked wiki page took effect in an alternate time line that merged with the game's time line during the mind wipe. All those events still happened, but unless you want your pup to come from that alternate time line, these events did not happen to them at all.
Hopefully this makes everyone happy.
We run this game for fun guys, between jobs, family and school work. We do our best to make everyone happy, but that just is not possible. While we will, in the future, consider opening large plots like this up for discussion, we hope you respect the choices we make while trying to craft an interesting and fun space for you to play.
