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

Amazing to see the momentum continuing with Hope Ross joining the institute as our resident sawbones!

The good doctor will endeavour to keep us all healthy and happy as we are bound to get into scraps and tussles. With powers of Telekinesis, she doesn't even need a nurse! And if you don't want to tell her what's wrong, she might just pluck it from your mind with her Telepathy.

Welcome to the staff. We're all looking forward to writing with you!

As the first new joiner in 2023 we're super happy to welcome Donald "DJ" Johnson to the Institute as our resident bard and Music teacher!

No need to sit in the front row of class as his powers of Soundwave Manipulation will make sure he can be heard loud and clear in the back of the room.

Welcome to the staff. We're all looking forward to writing with you!

» Jhanvi Dhar joins Avalon

Posted on Sat Dec 17th, 2022 @ 13:36 by Claire Cavendish in Sim Announcement

Going into the weekend ready to welcome a new list soul to the flock (was that too culty? It felt a bit cult-y.) Welcome Jhanvi Dhar to Avalon as our resident secretarial hand.

Let's hope she doesn't have to call on her powers of Metamorphosis to screen calls and maintain liaisons with the outside world as she helps Claire run a tight administrative ship.

Welcome to the staff. We're all looking forward to writing with you!

» Reagan D'Angelo joins Avalon

Posted on Fri Dec 16th, 2022 @ 17:22 by Claire Cavendish in Sim Announcement

A warm Avalon welcome to Reagan D'Angelo who is joining us as the resident Biology teacher!

With her powers of Phasing and Bio-electricity we hope that she'd sooner shock our students with amazing biology facts than feel the need to have the ground open up beneath her.

During more clandestine operations she'll be showing our enemies all corners of the room as our Close Quarters Combat specialist!

Welcome to the staff. We're all looking forward to writing with you!

"What took you so long? I thought you were the 'fastest man alive'?" Jonathan remarked jovially.

Leaning against the workbench inside the Institute's extensive garage, he hadn't actually been waiting long; he was actually early for a pre-arranged meet-up with the resident mechanical speedster. Getting there early was his way…
