Welcome to X-Men: Avalon, an online collaborative writing experience

"When An Individual Acquires Great Power, The Use Or Misuse Of That Power Is Everything."

~ Professor Charles Xavier


The year is 1992, and the world is trying to cope with the x-gene, a new step in human evolution, according to some. An abomination to nature according to others. Tensions have been on the rise for years, and it all seems to come to a head with groups of mutants across the world revealing themselves.

The Avalon Institute is an educational facility in Scotland financed by an anonymous source and under the leadership of Claire Cavendish the school aims to teach young and developing Mutants not only the regular high school curriculum required by the UK government but also covering the special challenges that the fledgling mutants have to deal with in their lives.

Join the brave and passionate faculty today and impact the minds and hearts of tomorrow!


X-Men: Avalon is based on the X-Men: Animated Series continuity, but all players are asked to create Original Characters for the purposes of the game. We avoid crossing paths with established characters to allow for our creativity to run rampant. Join us today and add your unique X-Person to the team.

X-Men: Avalon is a proud member of Obsidian Fleet

It always seemed that the auditorium was in use for one thing or another. Claire could barely remember the last time she sat here and watched a film. The big projector screen and the audio installation really added an extra dimension that she couldn't get from her shoddy CRT. A…

The last weeks were weighing heavily on Claire's shoulders, and when yesterday the government announced the establishment of the Genetic Oversight Unit she knew that it was going to get a lot worse before it got any better. The vision of Phoebe was still fresh in her memory, and there…

Claire stood in front of the doors that were labelled 'Maintenance'. It was a simple placard with the attention to have prying eyes slide over it and think no more of it. The door was locked with a thick key, one of those that seemed like it would belong to…
