El has been with the site for nearly two years now and has continued to prove her value. Currently, she is heading up our site event, Battle for Liberterram, on top of keeping up with her own personal plots.
Lux's posts are all wonderful to read. She has done a wonderful job of grasping the new universe and incorporating Peggy into it.
It's good to see Spidey back on the site. Watching him deal with the universe shift in his own snarky way has been nothing short of entertaining.
Eight O'Clock on the Dot!
El and Lux are making magic in this thread. Straight up fireworks, and the way they've played with drawing out the reveal is top class.
An excellent question. Mortal Ends has several member groups for its active characters in addition to supplementary groups. The application includes a Member Group field so that you can tell the admin team which group your character best fits in. If you are confused on this point, feel free to ask an admin which group best fits your character.
WHAT ARE ASSOCIATIONS?
These are groupings for characters that haven't quite merited a full "Member Group" but are still highly relevant to characters and their plots. Characters can still be messaged according to these associations and have a badge for them, but they will not be the sorted group for any character.
WHAT ABOUT BADGES?
Each member group has a corresponding badge. Characters will be sorted into a singular, primary member group, but will receive the badge for every group they are technically a part of. For example, Clint Barton would be sorted into the 'Avenger' group, but would receive the badges for both the 'Avenger' and 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' groups.
CAN GROUPS AND BADGES CHANGE?
Yes! As your character grows on the forum, their affiliation and groups can change with them. If you want to add a member group or association, you can simply do so from the "Groups" page on your profile (for instructions, go here). You can send a message to the group leader as well, telling them why you want to be in that group. Once that's done, let S.S.A. Erin know and she'll give you the corresponding badge!
The Asgardian group is specific to those characters that hail from the Asgardian plane. Characters canon to the Norse mythology or the Comics as Asgardian will be placed into this book. Original characters, however, cannot be Asgardian.
For anyone that is a citizen of Atlantis, whether Homo sapien or Homo mermanus, this is the member group for them. It can also contain people allied to Atlantis, although it would not be their main group.
The Avenger group is only for members of the Avengers Initiative. Characters can be invited to join the Initiative via plot on the board. The Avengers group will always be a character's display group should they qualify.
Characters that are not part of some kind of organization will be sorted here. These characters may have powers and the like, but they aren't members of the Government or organizations like SHIELD.
Anyone who works for their state's government as an Official of some kind can qualify for this group. Presidents, dictators, members of state committees; there's many ways to get the gavel.
All mutants will be placed in this group. While they are not necessarily a united front, it is their major qualifying factor and their are affiliations for groups like the X-Men and Brotherhood.
If your character works for S.H.I.E.L.D. in any capacity, this will be one of their member groups. This includes field agents, consultants, and just plain desk jockeys.
Characters that have powers not derived from a mutation or their Asgardian or Svartalfar physiology, will belong to this group. Inhumans are currently part of this group.
This is for characters that come from Svartalfheim. The Svartalfar are exempt from the overriding nature of the Villain group.
If your character is villainous in nature, this is the group for them. Servants of Thanos, members of Hydra, and other characters out to create mischief and mayhem will be sorted here. The Villains group is an overriding group unless your character is Svartalfar.
If your character dies in the course of the plot, this will become their new member group. They will keep the badge even if they should somehow be resurrected. Deceased characters can still be played in past threads that occurred before they died, but they do not count for a member's character count unless resurrected. (Please note that with Admin permission some deceased characters can be played in other instances as well, like in Helheim or other realms where the dead can walk.)
If your character is canon to the movies, the comics, or the myths, they will receive this badge to acknowledge that you've taken on that challenge.
If your character has been created as a complete original by yourself, they will receive this badge to acknowledge that you've taken on that challenge.
Each member of the Staff Team here on Mortal Ends has their own member group, but all of them have the above badge on an OOC account with their name prefixed by "S.S.A.".
New members that are still in the process of applying for their characters will be listed under this group in the member list. This group is barred from posting in the in-character sections of the site.
Members that have missed an activity check are placed in this group in the member list. Their names are colored black around the board and they are barred from posting in the in-character areas of the site until they contact a staff member with the intention of returning. You can request that a character be moved to this group if you don't feel like you have time to keep up with them at the moment but might want to pick them up again later.
Characters that are listed as inactive are considered as up for grabs and can be applied for by another member or potential member.
