X-Men Generations Draft

Post by Magik84 » 24 Mar 2020, 21:12

Hello, so I'm next in the draft line-up. Mine is pretty straightforward and will just be 7 rounds, so should go quick.

The idea is picking an X-Men team with the restraint that you can only pick 1 character from each decade, so usual teamups like Beast & Iceman or Nightcrawler, Colossus & Wolverine won't be happening. (Lavettye pointed out to me it's could look like the new X-Factor book by Williams)

Couple of things to know -
I'm splitting the groups by the characters first appearance, not by when they joined, so for example Magneto will be in the 1960s not the 1980s group. There will be 6 groups, (<1960s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s, 10s) and therefore 6 rounds where you pick from 1 of these groups no restriction what order you pick them in. There will be 1 free agent round where you can pick any Marvel character not on the list (including alternate versions) for your team.
I'm finalising the lists at the moment, I'm trying to keep each decade even enough so around 25 characters per group, I am also working first off characters that were on main x-men teams, in decades where not a lot of new characters I will expand out. At the same time when there has been too many characters (*cough* 00s) I've just chosen a selection, so not every x-student character will be there but that's what the free agent round is for!

So if people want to sign up, I will say up to 15 players and then we'll start Monday (30 March)

UPDATED:

Usual rules apply, player at the end gets a double pick. If there is 2 day gap between picks, player will be skipped, you can pm me with choices if you think you'll be busy.
You must pick 1 character from each decade (there are 28 characters in each decade), you can pick from any decade any round. ROUND 5 will be free agent round, you can pick any marvel character that is not on the list already.

ROUND 3

Nope, there are more than you'd think:
O5, Xavier, Magneto, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Juggernaut, Banshee, Mimic, Changeling, Polaris, Havok, plus a few villians such as Toad, Mastermind, Unus, Vanisher, Sauron and the first set of Savage Land Mutates.

Depending on where 1970 falls (60ies or 70ies), you'd also have Sunfire.

Plus characters who pre-dated the sixties, including Namor and Doctor Nemesis. There might also be characters who've served on splinter teams who debuted in the 60s (Black Knight in Excalibur for example).

I wouldn’t mind if we start earlier too, but only if you have the preparations already done of course.

I've had a lot on this week, so I'll finish prep at the weekend, and I'll leave starting it for Monday as planned, and that will give chance for any last minute joiners too.

So I finished list yesterday and although I said I wouldn't start until tomorrow, as there are already 14 players, happy to start today, if people are ready. Updated the first post with the character list and player order. Player order randomised somehow Anna Raven got 1st spot again, randomiser must like him!
Have fun!

Good list. I like that it even includes a few non-mutant allies and members…. but while Captain Britain and Cerise are on the list, a few mutant members of the first Excaibur aren't:

Meggan (1983 - Mighty World of Marvel #7)
Kylun (1988 - Excalibur #2) and
Micromax (1991 - Eccalibur #44)

Was that an oversight or on purpose ?

I wanted to keep lists even, so I had those on list of potential characters (Vindicator, marina and puck are notable absent from alpha flight too) but in the end they didn't make the cut
The 80s was particularly hard to cut down! Tried to get a bit variety too, always going to end up leaving off some characters, that's why free agent round is good to have.

Sorry, I read over the part where you said that it was the exact same number of characters in each group.

Just to clarify - in the free agent round we have to take someone not listed, or would it be okay to take a second character from one of the decade groups?
