Been so long since ive had a change to play. Is it plausible to squeeze me in?? If not watching how everything unfolds is still entertainment enough

You're in. We still have room for at least 4 more and maybe a few more than that if I reduce the rounds.

I want to warn everybody that hasn't played before or hasn't played in a while that with close to 20 players, expect a majority of your team to be more obscure characters. Don't expect that you'll get more than a handful of big name characters unless you're really lucky.

I have a great idea for a Cyclops, Storm, and Wolverine team. I'm pretty excited about it.

Working through the UXN's character glossary, I found about 590 mutants that could be used. Indeed some of these are very obscure, like the members of that shortlived Brotherhood series, the many rejected X-Statix recruits and the multitude of background Morlocks.

I will use some Neos too, they are mutants anyway. So Lavettye can pick all the morlocks

Maybe the largest in awhile. We use to have a cut off of 20 players. The last draft where we had 20 was I think x-men Draft 2.0.

This is sort of X-men Draft 3.0 but I didn't want to call it that.

Funny, how you remember things.

X-Men 2.0 felt much lighter than X-Men Editorial in terms of player counts, I would never have guessed they had the same number of players. The latter felt like an EPIC draft - in a good way. It's still probably my favourite draft (as a player) to play so far. Though Warped was great for the player creativity shown.

I have now closed sign ups for the draft and posted the randomly generated order of the 17 players. The first player is Lavettye and you can start now or wait until Monday. I will not start the 48 hour skip clock on anyone's pick until Monday starts in America where I am located. I will check in fairly regularly to cross off the names of the players each round and to add to the list of mutants already chosen on the threads first post.

I want to stress that if a character's status as a mutant is unclear and they have not showed up on Krakoa, either choose a different character or message me directly if you really want to use that character. I will try to be objective in denying or allowing that character using what tools I have but if UncannyXmen.Net says they are a mutant we count that as canon for this draft's purposes.
