Episode 8 : Endgame
Mutant Freak Academy was originally started by another GM. It went on for over 10,000 posts (I forget how many) before I took over with Mutant Freak Academy Elective Classes which survive approximately 3,800 posts. I'm not going to continue this game, I can't really do so with the time constraints. I think the best thing to do with the game at this point is end it. While this is a sad thing, I intend to give some level of closure. We have all written out the stories of our characters in our minds, but having it up here has always meant something to me. I feel like it meant something to you to I hope.

I left dozens if not  hundreds of clues about the next chapter and here I would like to post epilogue for these characters that we have grown to know. Ultimately this is the omega the game deserves. If you want some input here, they are you characters too. Post the final posts in this game. So here it goes. Episode 8: Endgame.

Episode 8 : Endgame
Dean Elsa Reign was one of the most powerful mutants on the planet. Recent days saw her powers wane until they faded away. Combined with a growing rift between her and Dean Jericho, this represented an alarming loss of power of the Academy.

Her disappearance was the result of her kidnapping by an insidious group known as EDEN. A apocalyptic group of highly intelligent evil scientist hell bent on restarting humanity and society to their own super powered ends. They intended to use her as a base DNA template for a race of superhumans to repopulate the world after they sufficiently cleansed it. They had tried this before and were largely respoisble ffor creating Joshua.

Ultimately the heroes of the story saved her and stopped EDEN. Elsa would return to the Academy.

Episode 8 : Endgame
Lazarus was a soldier in the army that fought for the mutants back in the gene-war. He was never satisfied that the human scum he wanted dead had survived the war. He wanted it to go on and fought to destroy those he believed brought pain onto mutant kind.

His violent tendencies would have him clash with the mutant Academy time and time again until the heroes finally defeated him. For the many dead left in his wake, he was sentenced to life in prison.

He will spend the rest of his days in a facility bitter about his defeat. The nullifier would not cause him terrible harm like the older models would. He would live to see the day the Academy succeeded in ending the tension and violence between humans and mutants.

Episode 8 : Endgame
Watching his son Jason fall into yet another power induced coma became what many considered a breaking point for Rylis Jeremiah Jericho. As a veteran of countless shadow wars, he decided to go after his enemies in ways he was always accustomed to. Rylis used the army of mercenaries and ex-hunters he gathered to strike at the Exchange and other anti-mutant groups.

When he learned prominent members of the United States Congress were among those who had in part helped engineer attacks on mutant kind, their public station did not stop him. His campaign of murder turned on elected officials, they branded him a criminal. Two days before his trial, all charges were dropped. His long life of war had left him with enough blackmail to free himself from even that.

Rylis was assassinated a year later. Evidence suggested that his operation continued for two years after his death. Nearly three quarters of his army met a similar end. Their violent contribution is something of a black mark on the reputation of Reign Academy despite him leaving. Yet there were many unwilling to condemn him. There were no less than four separate extinction level events Jericho and his shadow army had prevented.

Episode 8 : Endgame
Lector was a monster. When the gene-war ended with the armistice accord, he wanted to send the message that humans would never accept humans. To do this he carried out the horrific act of finding the leaders of the mutants and brutally murdering them and their family in their home. Lector murdered the powerful mutants Battleborn and Lighthawk, also known as Gregory Hallite and Julia Reign. Then he murdered their daughter in leaving only their son David as a survivor, not before crushing David's hand and forcing him to build a prosthetic.

For this awful act, he was hunted down by the MHA and caught. When Lazarus caught wind of this, he tried to have this man killed, but the MHA did what they could to hide him in Reign Academy. Lector survived and told the MHA about the existence of the 13th lab the Exchange had, which ultimately saved the life of several mutants including Nodoroc, Johnathan Harmath, and Rebecca Brown.

He died alone several years later under the MHA witness protection program.

Episode 8 : Endgame
After Lector was saved in Reign Academy, David Hallite left to work for Zack Stormm. He was terribly shaken by seeing the man who crushed his hand and murdered his family walk free. The injustice led him to try to find a new way even if it meant separating himself the people he loved, especially Mercy Winters.

Eventually he realized his terrible mistake and requested to leave. Zack while sad to see his old friend leave told him he needed to do what would be best for his own life. David Hallite left to a jewelry store, bought an engagement ring, and went to propose to Mercy Winters, the love of his life. Because he was largely considered to be the smartest man in the world, he was kidnapped by the EDEN group so his intelligencce could be harnessed. The heroes saved him and returned him to Mercy Winters.

When he arrived, he married the woman he loved. Completed the project to make human nullifiers, and raised a family at Reign Academy. He faced terrible sorrow in his life, but grew stronger than his pain and experienced happiness once again in his life.

Episode 8 : Endgame
Calvin Trask AKA Brimstone,
Virginia the mind controller,
and Legion...

They were a few of the people known as 'the Outsiders'. Each one wielded terrifying power, yet weren't actually mutants. In fact, they did what was possible to kill as many mutants as they could and turn public opinion against them.

They were beings from another dimension who wished to conquer this reality for their own. The tip of the spear of an inter dimensional army. When this reality sensed their intrusion, it started to mutate humankind into the meta-humans of the day.

During the 'Outsider Incident' they opened a gate in an attempt to overtake our dimension. Only the heroics of those at Reign Academy held them at bay.

When Victor Havoc was left with the decision to help Rylis Jericho in his Shadow War or stay with Reign Academy and defend it, she was instrumental in swaying his decision to stay (along with two other important factors). Stay stayed at Reign for many years to come taking what used to be Mercy's position before she became the head of the Academy.

"It was like a giant panther with six legs."
"Chitonous plating and like freaking bug wings on his back."
"It was the scariestiest thing I ever saw, but then I think he just wanted to be pet."
"It stole all my cat food."

History may never know exactly where this bizarre creature comes from...

Strange reports suggest he this monster may have been involved in some of the adventures of the heroes of Reign Academy.

Episode 8 : Endgame
Dr. Victor Havoc was presented with a difficult choice shortly after the coordinated attack on the 13 labs. On one hand Victor wanted to support his oldest friend as he engaged in what was to be his final war. Yet Elsa Reign had myssteriously disappeared as threats kept mounting up against the Academy. Dr. Elizabeth Temple and the imprisoned mutant Pandora did what they could to convince Havoc that he was needed to defend the Academy.

Ultimately the largest factor was his unwillingness to abandon the young mutants he had learned to care for. Despite their reservation towards him, Kayla and Kimberly represented a shot at correcting a mistake from his past. Jason was still recovering and as his godfather, he needed to keep the boy safe. Finally Joshua was the closest thing he had to a son.

He remarried Pandora in what was considered the second most beautiful and most chaotic event at Reign Academy.

Time marched and Havoc found his redemption in defending the Academy from it's constant threats. He grew old and saw his legacy of mad science taken over just in time to face a new wave of dangerous threats.

Episode 8 : Endgame
Joshua Masters took the name Blackhole as he became one of Earth's greatest defenders. After training under the insanely powerful Elsa Reign and the powerfully insane Havoc, he was considered to be one of the most dangerous beings on the planet, either unarmed or de-powered.

He managed to come to terms with the absence of his parents for some time, with Dr Havoc becoming a surrogate father in the interim. They forged a powerful partnership, with Joshua a quick study as it was discovered that he also had the ability to leech skills and talents from others. The longer he spent at the university in the presence of minds even greater than his own, the more cunning an intellect he fostered.

Eventually his impetuousness mellowed, and his youthful impatience was replaced by a thoughtful care and love for his fellow mutants. His true background was never really explained, but he knew that he had somehow been artificially created using DNA from multiple mutants. Apparently even some of Elsa's DNA had been used in the process, which explained some of what he could achieve.

Although never quite the genius that David himself was, Joshua has had his hand in a number of warp created devices that lent their unique properties to complement some of David's tech. He hasn't found love just yet, but he lives in anticipation of the time where he can let down his guard with a mutant powerful enough to withstand his embrace.

He led a life of many adventures along side his friends and to this day fights for continued peace on earth and occasionally other dimensions.
