The X-men run missions and work together with the NYPD, striving to maintain a peaceful balance between humans and mutants. When it comes to a fight, they won't back down from protecting those who need their help.
Haven presents itself as a humanitarian organization for activists, leaders, and high society, yet mutants are the secret leaders working to protect and serve their kind. Behind the scenes they bring their goals into reality.
The Syndicate works to help bring mutantkind to the forefront of the world. They work from the shadows, a beacon of hope for mutants, but a bane to mankind. With their guiding hand, humanity will finally find extinction.
Since the existence of mutants was first revealed in the nineties, the world has become a changed place. Whether they're genetic misfits or the next stage in humanity's evolution, there's no denying their growing numbers, especially in hubs like New York City. The NYPD has a division devoted to mutant related crimes. Super-powered vigilantes help to maintain the peace. Those who style themselves as Homo Superior work to tear society apart for rebuilding in their own image.

Magic and Mystics
After the events of the 2020 Harvest Moon and the following Winter Solstice, magic has started manifesting in the MROvere! With the efforts of the Welldrinker Cult, people are being converted into Mystics, a species of people genetically disposed to be great conduits for magical energy.
The Welldrinker Cult
A shadowy group is gaining power, drawing in people who are curious, vulnerable, or malicious, and turning them into Mystics. They are recruiting people into their ranks to spread the influence of magic in the world, but for what end goal?
Are They Coming for You?
There have been whispers on the streets lately of a boogeyman... mutant and humans, young and old, all have been targets of trafficking.
What if the human race began to adapt to the mutant threat? What if the human race changed ever so subtly... without the x-gene.
The lost city of Atlantis has been found! Refugees from this undersea mutant dystopia have started to filter in to New York as citizens and businessfolk. You may make one as a player character of run into one on the street.
Got a plot in mind?
MRO plots are player-created the Mods facilitate and organize the big ones, but we get the ideas from you. Do you have a plot in mind, and want to know whether it needs Mod approval? Check out our plot guidelines.
Unfortunately, Hist is right. When I made this site a trillion years ago, the colors were that of the old X-Men; red, blue, and yellow. When I created the skins after that, those colors weren't really a problem because there were only two factions at the time and we didn't have them grouped in separate colors. I was the only Mod for a while... So the need to have different colors regarding memebrs, visited links, etc. wasn't an issue. We only had our titles changed to let others know what faction we were in.
After another makeover down the road, the default became the 'moveposter' skin and thus, all the colors we have now work with its theme. I suppose I could go down the list of skins and change the colors of everything...
I totally hate that orangey-goldish puke for the Xs. If you guys really wanna do some form of gold... please GOD not that color. It's changed to that color however since it was voted upon. Just figured I would throw my opinion out there. *shrug*
OOC: Some of you may know, some of you might not. Neena will be absent for a while, so do not include her as being in the room any longer. Here we will begin our training session. It's open to anyone from the X-Men, trainees, and prospectives. Tric will start the intro and then you may freely post. Seeing as this thread will be going for a while, try and keep the posts a few paragraphs so everyone doesnt have a novel each time. )
The X-Men are heading to King's Pharmaceuticals to try and release the kidnapped mutants, including some of their residents. They will be facing The Order and possibly some of their own, including Iris, Sentinel, and the unknown mutant, Haywire a.k.a. Jack. They don't know that Iris has been sent to the mansion and will become a threat to all who are there.
Now that The Order successfully 'retrieved' Jack, she'll be taken to King Phameceuticals for further testing. Dorian King plans on testing Jack's full capabilities by using her mutation against others' mutations. Thus, he is 'kidnapping' neutral mutants throughout New York to see what powers would be best for his intentions when around Haywire.
Charles Xavier has found out about Jack's, and the other mutants', kidnapping from the facility. Tricity is planning to send a couple of the X-Men to The Sanctuary in hopes of finding out more about Dorain King and The Order.
*Neutral mutants who haven't PMed me yet to be taken by The Order, let me know if you would like to participate.*
The mutant called Haywire is Jacquelyn (Jack) Guy. She is currently 13 years old and is having terrible problems with her mutation. When around humans, she causes them to go deathly ill, and when around mutants, she makes their powers go...well, incredibly haywire.
Her parents took her to doctors who began studying her in an isolated room. After some time, an unknown 'rescuer' came and released her from the labs. This rescuer has been psyching Jack out and she is now angry with the doctors and for the misunderstandings and judgement she receives from others. Unaware of the rescuer's true intentions, Jack is being used for her powerful mutation for greedy purposes.
*This plot will start out with Jack's 'escape' from the labs by her rescuer and accomplices. (Participators include: Oppressor-give me a PM, his crew, and Jack who will be controlled by Daria for now.)
Next, a mass meeting in the living room of the mansion will be held about a newspaper clipping with the escape of Jack from the labs that Tricity finds. (Participators include: Anyone living in the mansion.)
Those members who do not fall into those categories will have to be patient for now till the plot gets rolling, though you may certainly continue personal plots and a knowing of the escaped mutant by the media.*
