Years ago, after witnessing and being subject to unjust cruelty, a mutant named Charles Xavier opened a school for mutants. His hope was to educate mutants in conventional means as well as to help these young men and women to understand, harness and control their powers. Xavier brought these young men and women together with the hope that they would learn tolerance and coexistence with their human counterparts; to silently undermined the fear and mistrust humans showed towards mutants.
Xavier began small; first he only took on two students, adults already possessing education, and helped them to harness their abilities. Slowly, he began to take on more students, and eventually teachers. Soon, his school had blossomed from two to dozens of students and half a dozen teachers.
Searches for new students and protecting the school soon became top priorities for Xavier, as well as becoming increasingly difficult. Along side his original students and a few of his teachers, Xavier recruited more mutants and created a team known simply as the X-Men.
It is the job of the X-Men to protect the X-Mansion and those who live within as well as to find new students with the help of Xavier.
This simple life cannot remain simple in the current world. Anti-mutant campaigns and demonstrations have become increasingly popular in the past few years, while more new mutants appear every day. Government officials threaten the safety and rights of mutants more and more.
Mutants, stepped upon, feared and threatened are forming Homo Superior groups, bent on wiping out the human race before it happens to them. The X-Men have become crusaders for their cause, protecting humans and themselves from rationalist groups.
The X-Men: Mutant Institute is a Play By E-Mail Role Playing Game (PBEM RPB) based on the adventures of the X-Men and their friends. We do not stay to the Marvel set X-Men, anyone can be an X-Man.
