X-Factor Solutions is a year-old company located in Mutant Town. It employs a wide variety of mutants and offers their services for sale. No job too big or too small.
Purpose & Goals
Right now, X-Factor employees are just trying to make a living in a world where finding employment as a mutant is hard.
X-Factor is low on resources, but it does have an office in Mutant Town with a small gym, a conference room, a lounge, and several oddly-furnished offices upstairs.
Jeremy Wallace is the primary 'boss' of X-Factor Solutions at startup, being one of the founding members and the guy behind the scenes who knows how to work the bookkeeping software and the spreadsheets.
Employees of XFS are of roughly equal footing.
Bringing in a job for the team earns an employee a commission bonus in addition to pay for taking part in the job, so you eat what you kill. Basic pay and extremely limited benefits are all we get at startup.
Jobs can be just about anything that people will pay us to do (within reason, like, okay, nobody take out a hit on somebody or anything all right). An active roster of XFS employees will be maintained at the office, and a team from that roster will be assigned to assist with a given job inside their skillset (hopefully).

- September 2045: X-Factor is founded.
- All plots centered around X-Factor Solutions, which means that we encourage all players to have at least one character who is at least a part-time employee.
- Getting Hired
- - Hiring on is generally done off-cam - you can presume that you have been hired and provided a contract as soon as you hit the grid. If you want some contact with XFS employees before hand, that's also fine, but the actual 'signing up' should be assumed off camera.
- - Staff often posts job lists which are available for RP. Feel free to RP completing any of these jobs and to make up details surrounding it unless specifically stated otherwise.
- - Characters also bring in their own business, so you can RP completing jobs which are not listed.
- - Players should feel not only welcome, but encouraged, to GM jobs both for themselves and for other players. It's part of what keeps the game moving!
