>Fire>Air>Water>EarthPreviously, on Avatar Quest.....After interrupting a meeting between the adults to discuss building a settlement, you were berated by your father for expressing your opinion when it was not asked for in a meeting that you were not a part of. When Lee spoke up on your behalf, things quickly deteriorated, and the two decided to duel one another. Lee quickly gained the advantage; dodging your father's bending attacks and managing to knock him onto his back. But, your father gained the advantage when he lifted himself into the air on a pillar of Earth and began raining attacks down upon Lee. Worried about someone getting hurt, you stepped in, prompting your father to attack you. During the ensuing fight, you revealed that you were the Avatar. Your father panicked and prepared an attack that would have killed you, had your mother not intervened. Your father went off by himself, and you spoke with the others for a time before going to speak with him. The two of you reconciled, and he placed you and your mother in charge while he left to deliver a report to the Queen. At your recommendation, he also put Sena in charge. That night, under the moon, you successfully Waterbended for the first time before going to sleep, awakening to find bandits attacking.
>Welcome to Avatar Quest. Here are the rules.Decisions are made by vote. Each vote has a ten minute interval, after which, the option that receives the most votes it the one that is chosen.There are no write-ins unless explicitly statedSome options require rolls. In that event, rolls will be out of 100. Whether rolls succeed or fail is decided by the first three rolls. If one passes, then you succeed regardless of the other two. Rolls will really only occur during training, or when trying something new.All decisions are final. If you regret voting for something, too bad. Think carefully before you make decisions.Try to keep waifu bullshit to a minimum.>All threads are archived on suptg
You decide to get your day started, and get up. When you're greeted by the sight of your family and friends fighting for their lives against bandits, you know it's going to be an interesting day....Your mother, Sonyo, Sena, and Ren are all trapped in nets. The others are busy facing off against a dozen bandits.Bulo is using his Earthbending against a group of three men wielding swords. He is having little success against them, as his limited abilities are less effective with sand. However, he manages to knock one of his foes onto his back with a sand blast, but the other two are quickly closing in.Felna and Galda fight side by side, each unarmed but still extremely dangerous. As you watch, Felna sweeps a bandit's legs out from under him, and Galda stomps on his throat when he hits the ground, crushing his windpipe. Their other two opponents back away slowly, looking fearful.Lee skillfully evades the strikes of his foes, catching one man's arm and quickly breaking it before falling back into his evasive pattern.Away from the others stands a man with a bald head and a dark mustache, observing the fight with a frown.>A. Go try to free the others>B. Help Bulo>C. Help the girls>D. Dialogue writein>E. Help Lee>F. Attack the bald man
>>33522375>F. Attack the bald manTake out the leader and the rest should scatter
>>33522375>E.Create short ledges and walls to the side which lee can use to get more leverage. Help out our strongest first, then progress will pick up. I vote going for Bulo after, then heading for the others.
>>33522375>>D. Dialogue writeinFIRE SO MUCH FIRE!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFnnNijn_OI
>>33522375>>A. Go try to free the others
>>33522375>F. Attack the bald manLet's firebend the shit out of this
>>33522375>D. Dialogue writeinYell for our lake buddy
>>33522375>B. Help BuloWe help Bulo since he's struggling. The enemy are normal humans or benders at best, but they'll still be heavily weighed down if they ran and tried to take the full grown adults in nets with them.
>>33522398>>33522404>>33522451>>33522500You figure that the bald man is the leader, and decide that the wisest course of action would be to take him out. He sees you as you run towards him, and sends a blast of sand in your direction. You leap out of the way and counter with a sand blast of your own, which he dodges in a similar manner. Before he has the chance to counter, you fire a blast of fire at him.His eyes widen in shock, and he barely manages to avoid the attack, leaping out of the way and landing on his side. He punches the ground, creating a wall between the two of you.Glancing around, you see that Felna has been caught under a net, while Galda continues to fiercely battle with two opponents. Bulo has been captures as well, and Lee is desperately trying to evade the strikes of his foes.>A. Pull the wall down>B. Lift yourself up high with a pillar of sand to see over the wall>C. Go try to free the others>D. Dialogue writein>E. Help Galda>F. Help Lee>G. Surrender
>>33522679>C. Go try to free the others
>>33522679>C. Go try to free the othersOk, now we're running out of fighters. Time to free some people
>>33522679>C. Go try to free the othersDamn hes a bender
>>33522679>>C. Go try to free the others
>>33522679>CWe probably shouldn't have revealed our fire bending yet.
>>33522769>>33522741>>33522739>>33522736>>33522725>>33522711>>33522707>>33522701Things are looking bad. With only three of you still fighting, the battle is looking impossible to win. With that in mind, you rush to free the others from their nets.Turning your attention away from your foe proves to be a huge mistake.As you make your way to the nearest netted person, Felna, you give Galda a little help by knocking one of her foes away with a sand blast. Galda continues fighting standing between the enemies and you as you move to free Felna. Before you can do much of anything, however, a large sandblast knocks both you and Galda to the ground. Before you can get up, a net is thrown on top of the two of you. It quickly tightens, squeezing you and Galda together and immobilizing you to the point where you can't Earthbend. The bald man approaches, chuckling darkly."Well, we hit the jackpot today," he comments. "Some pretty women, some strong benders, and the Avatar."He kneels in front of you. "Ming is going to be VERY happy with us. Of course, he'll be most happy if we don't have to kill any of you. I don't want to disappoint him, but if any of you cause trouble, you are going to die. And Avatar, you're too valuable a prize to kill. But, if you cause any trouble, I'll kill one of your friends, starting with the girl you were trying to free.">A. Tell him you won't cause trouble>B. Try to melt through the next with fire (This likely won't work, and even if it does, you will almost certainly burn Galda)>C. Ask who Ming is>D. Dialogue writein>E. Stay silent
>>33522970Welp quest over, see you guys next time
>>33522970Seriously?>C. Ask who Ming is
>>33522970Lets beg for are life then get are throat cut.
>>33523012What? Turning your back on your opponent was stupid.
>>33522970>E. Stay silentWith how Sithquest & apparently the prototype turned out I don't think we should push our luck.
>>33522970Fuck, let's bide our time for now.>A
>>33523026>looking at the fight frowning>does almost nothing to us>erects a wall between usSure seemed like a hostile target
>>33522970>>E. Stay silentI hope they don't rape our mother in front of us.
>>33523062He was a bender that did attack you, turning your back on him was not a wise move.
>>33522994It's not over yet. We've used Avatar State once, it might save us again! R-right?
>>33522970>BToo bad Galda, you'll have to take one for the team here.
>>33523079No, its over, you know it, som knew it since the beginning, and now we get to watch bandits rape everyone we love before we die
>>33522970>>C. Ask who Ming isHey Som, think we might be able to do some impromptu airbending?
>>33523079The failed water bender used the avatar state once, but that didn't save him when that woman killed him.
>>33522970>C. Ask who Ming isMaybe Felna will take a reveal for the team.
>>33522970>C. Ask who Ming isI guess?You'd think we'd at least get a roll or something
>>33523026Just frustrated that the fight ended so quickly and that we are no longer in control of our own destiny.
>>33523079our life isn't in danger yet so that's not likely.>>33523092yes let's trigger the Berserk ptsd riddled girl who nearly killed us.
>>33523134Well, I mean, after she killed you, she might still have enough rage induced strength to kill the bandits.
>>33523125On the plus side, at least we won't get the "everyone's retarded but me" posts since everyone voted C. We are all in this nice boat together now
>>33523171I missed the vote, so I'll still call all these faggots retarded.
>>33523201And it takes a minute for this guy to roll in
>>33523220So you see you can't escape people childishly pointing and going 'neener neener'.
>>33523171yeap. Frankly it still seems like the reasonable option, but whatever. I didn't think it'd result in instant capture.
Its all overYou couldn't have stopped thisDon't call it a grave its the future som chose
>>33523283certainly seems like it
>>33522970>D. "You've got a family of lordlings and relatives of the queen herself, along with the Avatar. Maybe you can barter with the queen for a rather nice ransom, but chances are more likely you'll all be crushed under sixty feet of solid rock. If we all suddenly disappear from this region, the queen will send an army to find you, and she will find you, and you'll all be hung before the month is out. And if you just let us go and walk away, we won't say a word.Really, it's in your best interests to leave us be. We have little valuables with us, and we intend to set up a city. In exchange for our lives...I'm sure an understanding could be reached concerning your activities and trade routes to the capital. Things I won't talk about at sword-point."For the record, my plan is to play hardball, and then when they get all mean, "Friends, friends, we can't expect negotiations with all of us angry like this. These are large matters, and negotiations may take a few days...instead of getting violent, lets take a night to mull over what was said, and take a fresh, calmer look in the morning." The idea is to delay until A) Their guard is let down, or B) until Daddy comes home.Other ideas involve going to their camp as a hostage for negotiations, leaving everyone else here (to attack from without, we can also take Galda or Lee for protection), or launching them all into the lake at the first oppurtunity.
>>33523265Yeah, I was expecting there to be at least a roll to avoid capture or counterattack or something.
>>33523265A hostile bender appears who can do more advanced tricks than our parents, who are moderately famous soldiers, and you ignore him. Very reasonable.
>>33523283>everyone rolls C>Som chose this, guys!
>>33523315>I am worth lots of money, everyone here is worth lots of money, but you should totally fear the monarch who isn't going to do shitshut up
>>33523342>Worth money>Person they're trying to ransom us to won't do shitPick one.
>>33523315Fuck no, that's the worst thing to be saying right now
>>33523342If you have a better idea, then go ahead and post
>>33523338>implying anything we could do would save usNot my fault people chose the quickest path to death
>>33523315Sure what the hell. After who the fuck ming is
>>33523315That seems like the type of dialogue that Som would punish us for and rightfully so. We have literally no leverage here, threatening victorious bandits is the dumbest thing we can do.
>>33523265You didn't think turning your back on a person we just engaged in combat would be a bad idea to help our allies who were faltering due to us not helping them in the beginning?
>>33523366Every other option than B would be better than the write-in.
>>33523347>>33523315On one hand this could get us a stay of execution in order to try & get shitloads of money, however we risk the queen giving zero fucks & getting killed anyway on the other they may enslave/rape/murder us anyway because they are brigands and give zero shits.
>>33523382We A) Make it seem like killing or ransoming us is the worst thing we could do...then B) Offer up a large, LARGE amount of future profits, which we will negotiate over as a delay tactic.
>>33523315No.Just no.If a person already has you captured, improving your value only gives them a reason to keep you captured.If a person has gone so far as to attempt to harm, or even kill, there can hardly be reasoning with them, as that is likely their purpose.Also, the queen would have no reason to suspect any foul play, let alone that this one shit was responsible.
>>33522970>D. "Let them go, and I'll do anything you want."
>>33523433We aren't relying on that. It's just a delaying tactic.
>>33523012>>33523109>>33523121>>33523125"Who's Ming?" you ask.The bald man throws back his head and laughs. "Who's Ming? Do you really not know? Ming the Bandit King, the mightiest criminal in the Northern Kingdom!"Now you remember; you've heard stories of Ming. He rules over many bandits with whom he terrorizes the kingdom; robbing, kidnapping, murdering, and so on. Some say that even the Queen fears him."Well, he knows who you are," the bald man tells you. "That is to say, he knows who the Avatar is. He's going to be very glad to meet you."Suddenly, he scowls. "Will you idiots stop messing around and catch that brat?"Moving your head, you can see that Lee is still fighting, though clearly losing."We don't have time for this," the bald man grumbles, leaving you and going to help the other bandits defeat Lee."If they take us to Ming, we're pretty much done for," Galda tells you. "We'll be killed, sold as slaves, or forced to join him.""AHHH!" you hear from the Bald man, drawing your attention away from Galda.You see him fall to the ground, smoke rising from his back. Felna steps over him and regards the other bandits, who have knocked Lee to the ground and are preparing to net him.Three of the bandits rush towards Felna, while the others finish netting Lee. As they approach, Felna takes a deep breath. Once they get a bit closer, she breaths out with what sounds like a roar as flames come pouring from her mouth, engulfing the bandits, who fall to the ground, screaming in agony.The other nine bandits back away slowly, but Felna doesn't let them get far before she begins firing a barrage of small fire blasts at them, scorching the flesh of many while the others flee. One drops his sword close to Lee, who manages to grab it and cut himself free with it. He stands and prepares to fight any of the bandits who weren't smart enough to run.Felna takes a deep breath, this time to calm herself, and turns towards you, smirking."I told you I ha-
>>33523468Delaying for what?
>>33523469ha-FUCK SHE DIES
>>33523433Yeah. If we go missing, I can sooner see our dad suggesting to the queen that Galda's family killed/kidnapped us all and ran than expecting bandits
>>33523469>ha-no pls no
>>33523469>and turns towards youShe turned to face us, time for Som to arbitrarily kill her because killing people and denying his players real choice is how he getms his jollies.
>>33523490nah, Som just hit the text limit she'll die next post
>>33523485Either dad to get back or someone more combat minded to get a way out.
>>33523469>Felna takes a deep breath, this time to calm herself, and turns towards you, smirking.>"I told you I ha-
>>33523469>"I told you I ha-i'ts j-just a break r-right?
>>33523506As funny as that would be, he probably just ran out of space.
>>33523469Oh god... I swear you feed off our anxiety.I don't blame you. Its delicious
>>33523469Don't you do it Som you cocksucker
avatar rage state incoming
>>33523531She's dead, Jim
>>33523574It won't be worth it
>>33523469>>33523012>>33523109>>33523121>>33523125-d a few more tricks," she says, setting to freeing you and Galda, who stares at her with a stunned expression.Once the two of you are free, you get to your feet. Galda starts to speak, but Felna interrupts her."I'll explain everything later," she tells her sister. "For now, we need to free the others and decide what to do next."Before anybody can respond, an arrow strikes the ground in front of your feet. Looking in the direction it came from, you see an archer in a nearby tree, already pulling back another arrow and aiming at Felna's head.>A. Use your Firebending to blast at the archer>B. Use your Firebending to blast at the tree>C. Jump in front of the arrow>D. Dialogue writein>E. Create a wall of sand between Felna and the archer>F. Open a hole under Felna
Game over, right?
>>33523595>F. Open a hole under Felna
Rolled 25 + 12>>33523595>E
>>33523595>A. Use your Firebending to blast at the archer>B. Use your Firebending to blast at the tree>C. Jump in front of the arrowWe can heal with water, remember that
Saving Felna is top priority. We should vote F, right? Firebending is unreliable and he might still fire the arrow.
>>33523595>>E. Create a wall of sand between Felna and the archer
>>33523595D. Create a pillar under FelnaShe wanted to try this, didn't she?
>holes or walls>protecting from an archer at an elevate positionno
>>33523595>>F. Open a hole under Felna
>>33523595>E. Create a wall of sand between Felna and the archer
>>33523595Ah, no, that's right. She couldn't die THEN, because THEN it wouldn't be as a direct consequence of us choosing the "wrong" option.Not sure why I even came back after all the other bullshit.
>>33523629We did that on Avatar State fueled instinct, we don't actually know how to do it
>>33523663Angles and distance, son.
>>33523707>anything stopping som from killing someone
>>33523651>>33523683You do realize that Sominus never takes write-in actions when it says "Dialogue Within"? That happened last session too. Not voting since I'm pretty sure whatever I'll vote for will kill Felna
>>33523675>I make it just happen without an option right before itHurr durr, we have no control>I give you options as a chance to prevent itHurr durr, he wants to make it our fault
>>33523663It'll buy us time
>>33523725Everything is kill
>>335235>A. Use your Firebending to blast at the archer>B. Use your Firebending to blast at the tree
>>33523749you know you would do it if we wouldn't notice
>>33523749We have no control and you want to make it seem like it's our fault.I'm not sure why 'Hurr durr' immediately makes that untrue.
>>33523740That just ensures nothing fun will ever happen.>>33523725If it's right in front of her, a wall just a head higher would probably be fine unless the shooter was right overhead.
>>33523782>Six options>No controlPick one

>>33523841To derail? I don't think he has so complex and useless a motive.Just a bone to pick.
>>33523841Hey man, he responds to you when you vote with the majority.
>>33523809Don't you see Som, all options result in deathSeriously don't worry about it. Shadowrunners will shadowrun. Just don't respond to it.>>33523856Then fuck off and leave or admit that you're just trolling so Som will just ignore you.

>>33523856If you won't enjoy it then just leave, there are plenty of other quests.
>>33523887>Then fuck off and leave or admit that you're just trolling so Som will just ignore you.>>33523897>why are you even here in this thread then?Eh, I just pop in every now and then to see if Som's busted out of his shitty 'I will fuck my players over in any possible way and it'll be their fault because they're stupid lelelel' mindset.
>>33523897See, there's a difference between effect and intent.Person bitches for the sake of bitching, and even if that bitching derails the tread, it wasn't his intention.Does the thread remain derailed? Yes. But that wasn't the argument.
name fagging again look som Hatters gona hate just ignore them unless its constructive complaints
>>33523809He's probably saying that he doesn't trust you as a QM to not fucking him over. Which leads to the question: Why follow a quest when you don't trust the QM? Makes no sense. >Eh, I just pop in every now and then to see if Som's busted out of his shitty 'I will fuck my players over in any possible way and it'll be their fault because they're stupid lelelel' mindsetSo not even following the quest, don't engage the meta and just move on.
>>33523830>>33523620>>33523624>>33523650>>33523672>>33523673>>33523680You quickly create a high wall of sand in front of Felna, yourself, and Galda.This sudden obstacle causes the archer to hesitate, and gives Felna the chance to duck. When the arrow is fired, it flies harmlessly over her head and into the lake. The archer has no way of knowing whether or not he hit Felna, but it's likely that he'll turn his shots on the others, who are still visible to him.Taking a little peak around the wall, you see the archer taking aim at Lee, who strolls slowly towards the tree, a look of quiet fury on his face. The archer fires, but Lee has already begun leaning to the side, and catches the arrow by its shaft. He stares up at the stunned archer and breaks the arrow in two.The archer desperately knocks another arrow.>A. Shoot a fire blast at the archer>B. Shoot a fire blast at the tree>C.

>>33523595>E. Create a wall of sand between Felna and the archerMost reliable option.
here is a compromise save the complaints and criticisms of som's writing till after the thread so as to not muck up the thread
>>33523959I think noting a lack of effective player agency is fairly constructive.But being an ass about it, of course it's not going to do anything.
>>33523977>A. Shoot a fire blast at the archerDistracts him from Lee and won't get in Lee's way.
>>33523977>A. Shoot a fire blast at the archer
>>33523977>F. Launch yourself at the archer with a pillar of sand
>>33523977Lee confirmed for a total badass not voting because I picked dumb options the last two times
>>33523977>B. Shoot a fire blast at the treePanic the archer, force him to leave the tree, let's Lee have some time to shine with his bagua.
>>33523977>>A. Shoot a fire blast at the archer
>>33524029We definitely need to train with him. he's probably our best option for figuring out airbending without actually having an airbender to learn from.
>>33523977>You quickly create a high wall of sand in front of Felna, yourself, and Galda.>This sudden obstacle causes the archer to hesitate, and gives Felna the chance to duck.Let's examine this post for a moment, shall we?All this wall of sand did was 'give Felna a chance to duck'. This shows that the wall - on its own - would not have been enough (in Som's estimation) to save our friend.However, I suspect he didn't feel able to kill her at this point because he's determined not to show how his detractors are right about his ridiculous habit of antagonism toward his players. So she 'ducked'.
>>33524067Martial arts in general would be useful as well
>>33524067Personally, that makes me think of water more than anything else.
>>33524113This, feel the flow of the world nigga
>>33524113Nah. Water is about redirecting force. Lee's been avoiding it entirely. We haven't seen him do any throws or counters, just dodging attacks until he gets close enough to retaliate. That plus his utter calm suggests airbending to me rather than water.
>>33524174MGQ? I don't know that one. What's it about?

>>33524018>>33524014>>33524003>>33524028>>33524033You take a deep breath and bring your hands in, lowering them in front of you.The archer fires another shot, which Lee dodges, getting closer to the tree.As the archer prepares another shot, you thrust your fists towards him, unleashing a torrent of flame that strikes him directly, causing him to scream in pain and shock as the fire engulfs his body and he falls from the tree, the now burning branch falling on top of him.Lee looks in your direction and gives you a nod of thanks before moving over to the fallen archer."Nice shot," Felna compliments.>A.

>>33524223>B. Free the othersLee got that handled

>>33524209Oh, that. I've heard of that. What does it have to do with this conversation? I'd rather know ahead of time before I start looking through the wiki for it. Don't get me wrong, I like fluffy tails as much as the next guy, but I'd prefer not to have to spend too much time hunting for the relevant page.
>>33524239>>33524245>>33524247>>33524256>>33524257>Free the othersDon't you guys remember what happened last time?>Hurr durr you turned away from the fight
>>33524249Surely, it would be wiser to try to free the others and get our combat strength up instead of seeing whether this guy survived being engulfed by fire?
>>33524285Lee will beat the shit out of him if he tries something.
>>33524280You can summon the water spirit and go into a tranquil state allowing you to avoid ALL attacks
>>33524285Lee (and Felna if my suggestion goes through) are taking care of the Archer, I think we're good
>>33524285This is this and that is that. There's two action options since dialogue is not an action. Why exactly would we go to the archer?
>>33524295Wiser yes but curiosity has damned me to taking the latter option.
>>33524280What you described in the post before you were told to play the game was basically what using the element of water was all about.Air did the same thing, but used speed as the means rather than tapping into tranquility.
>>33524308>>33524334Ah. I see. Well, water in Avatar certainly isn't about calm. If anything it's the angriest of the elements. We have yet to meet a waterbender who didn't have some sort of anger issue.
>>33524325also I may add >>33524285 has a tiny bit of merit to it, a tiny bit not a lot.
>>33524364Water in Avatar is about change, though.And you can do two things with regard to change. You can try to fight it: anger; or you can yield to it: calm.Avatar is all about Chinese mythology. Yin and Yang only make sense.

Galda, on the other hand, stays behind, and helps you release the others from their nets."So...since when can Felna Firebend?" Sonyo asks."That's what I want to know," Galda tells him."We can discuss that later," Ren tells the pair. "First, we need to make sure we aren't going to be attacked again.""Several of the bandits escaped," your mother points out. "In all likelihood, they'll get help and come back.""True, but we should make sure we don't have to worry about an immediate attack before we decide what to do next," Ren says"If that archer survived, he might be able to tell us some things," Sena suggests."Well, he didn't survive," Lee says ad he and Felna approach. "Between the fall and the fire, he died."Galda sighs. "That figures.""Then we must act under the assumption that this spot could be attacked at any time," Ren says. "We should pick up camp and leave.">A. And go where?>B. No, you should stay and fight>C. You should bring the fight to Ming>D. Dialogue writein>E. Say nothing
>>33524445Oh, I know, I was mostly making a joke. Water in Avatar is about change, and that's why it's not very good at avoiding attacks. It's much better at accepting the energy of the attack and redirecting it to transform defense into offense. You want to dodge attacks you go air, block attacks you go earth, redirect attacks you go water and preventing your enemy from getting a chance to attack is fire.
>>33524502>B>D "If we can set a successful ambush, we can decimate most of them."
>>33524502>E. Say nothingSay nothing, do nothing, give no sign you even heard.That way nothing will be your fault.
>>33524502>D. Dialogue writeinWhat about the fact that we just sent out a messenger to the queen telling her that this is a great place, and the fact that he will be returing to this place
>>33524502>A. And go where?>D. Dad and the Queen are expecting us here after all.
Alright guys, I'm not going to vote yet, but my current idea is that we stay, have the Earthbenders fortify the area, and fightwhat do you think?
Everytime I see these threads, I get sad because Humble is gone and will never return.Then I get angry because I remember all that's left is Somnius.
>>33524502>D. Dialogue writein"What about my father? He's expecting us to be here when he returns. Should we send someone to catch up with him? It's only been a day, we can probably reach him if someone leaves now."
>>33524583I like the idea. I expect we could build a veritable fortress in a day or so.
>>33524502I'm not sure as to our course of action but the bandits likely know the area better than we do.
>>33524597Actually, he will be back
>>33524502>B. No, you should stay and fight>D. Dialogue writein "We'll need to be better prepared, we should raise some earthwalls around the area and fortify ourselves"
>>33524615I'm not sold on it. The bandits have earthbenders, too. Probably not many, but an earthen structure is potentially vulnerable. So is a wooden one, if they have firebenders. Though we have been joking that this place is the future site of Ba Sing Se, so if we could build a fortress and defend it we'd go a long way towards establishing it as the Impenetrable City.
>>33524583>>33524615We'll be heavily outnumbered. Our opponent is Ming the Bandit King.>He rules over many bandits with whom he terrorizes the kingdom; robbing, kidnapping, murdering, and so on. Some say that even the Queen fears him.He can easily overwhelm us in numbers and he knows we are an incredibly value target since he knows we are an Avatar.
>>33524615>>33524671>Build channel through which water can flow>Build base of wall over channel somehow >???>PROFIT!
>>33524502>>A. And go where?
>>33524714Well, running will just get us ambushed or something and going directly to him is a complete dumbass move. Hell, if we get a lucky waterbend roll or something we can flood them while we're safe in our fort
>>33524502>A.If we don't like it...>BWe cab bend the water nearby, we can solidify hard-to-bend sand into damned hard walls, and we have turtlesharkbro
>>33524824We can barely waterbend, and we haven't yet learned how to fuse dirt or sand into stone. We have a ways to go before we can make a fortification that easily.
>>33524548>>33524567>>33524578>>33524613>>33524668"And go where?" you ask."Back the way we came from," Ren tells you. "Towards the capital.""They probably know the woods better than us," your mom tells him. "We wouldn't make it.""And besides, my dad and the Earth Queen are expecting us here," you point out. "We could probably have someone reach him to warn him if we move fast."Your mother shakes her head. "Going off alone right now would be suicide.""Then let's stay and fight," you suggest."Yes! Let's kick some bandit butt!" Sonyo agrees gleefully."We barely managed to beat the last group," Ren points out."They attacked when most of us were asleep," Galda reminds him. "This time, they won't have that advantage.""We'll need to be better prepared," you say. "We should raise some Earth walls around the area and fortify ourselves.""Well, some of the bandits we took down had weapons we can use," Felna says."And some of the others dropped their weapons and fled," Lee adds.Galda grins. "I'm gonna go see if I can find a pair of daggers."She runs off to inspect the corpses, and both Ren and Sena go off to arm themselves as well. Your family gather around you."If we're going to fortify this place, we should do it fast," your mother tells you.>A. Use your bending to fortify the base>B. Tell the others to set up the defenses while you plan a strategy>C. Dialogue writein
>>33524862>>A. Use your bending to fortify the baseLet smart people think of a strategy. We have plenty of combat veterans, they should assume the command.We are a strong bender, we need to fortify the base.
>A. Use your bending to fortify the baseWe can have the adults plan things out
>>33524862>A. Use your bending to fortify the baseWe are the Avatar after all. Maybe we can get lake guardian's help too

>>33524862>>A. Use your bending to fortify the baseNot sure why that was even a question.People have been clamoring to build with bending for several threads.>>33524884>We have plenty of combat veterans, they should assume the command.Only our mother, that I know of.
>>33524862>A. Use your bending to fortify the base
>>33524862>A. Use your bending to fortify the baseA central fortress surrounded by staggered walls and trenches. The idea should be to make it slow going to get close enough to the walls to attack them. And see if we could make punji traps with earthbending. It should be within our capabilities.
We need to get Lee to train us at somepoint, I like the cut of his jib
>>33524962And it turns out all of their children know some type of bending and that Galda's just repressed hers.
Can we also use our Lake pal to help us out?
>>33525006God, I hope so.
>>33524113>>33524174Speaking of, I can't help but think of pic related every time I see Best Girl's name.
>>33525047I fucking love her
>>33524862>Bend some traps. Underground tunnels that can be collapsed for quickly-made, large-scale holes under the surrounding trees.Step 1: Ignite treesStep 2: Collapse tunnelsStep 3: Laugh as flaming trees fall on the horde of bandit scum while the earth is ripped up from under them, all survivors shitting themselves and running the fuck away because HOLY SHIT THE AVATAR REALLY IS A BADASS

You set to work immediately.Your mother, being a war veteran, is able to give you some direction. She tells Felna and Ren to run off and gather all of the large sticks and branches they can find, Galda to use her daggers to sharpen them all. She then instructs you to build large walls around the beach, which will at the very least keep any archers from getting a clear shot."If Mind gets word that you're the Avatar, he will certainly want to capture you, rather than kill you," she explains. "He won't just order his archers to fire blindly into the base; too much risk of you getting hit and killed."You create a high wall of sand in front of the trees, and a high wall of sand on each end of the beach. You don't bother putting up a wall right at the lake. They most likely won't bother coming that way, and leaving it open gives you water to bend."Sand walls won't hold them well, but if there's an entrance, even a small one, their first instinct will be to go for that rather than to attack the walls," she tells you.Taking her advise, you carve a small doorway out of the wall in front of the area that the bandits retreated in.Galda, in the meantime, sets to sharpening everything that is brought to her, soon having a large pile of sharp sticks."Now, we want to make it as hard as possible for them to reach us," your mother tells you. "The less we have to actually fight, the better. Make some deep trenches around the base."You do so, creating deep trenches all around the base, except in the lake, of course.She then gets Galda, and the two of them soon come over with the sharp sticks."Rise the Earth at the bottom of the trenches," your mother instructs.You do so, and both she and Galda begin planting the sharpened sticks in it before you lower it back do-

>>33525443What kind of monster DOESN"T tell his mother he loves her, every chance he gets?I'm going to call my mom right now, just to spite you.
>>33525321>. Go talk to Felna
>>33525443We don't know he's dead, don't say that yet. Unless we see a body, I'd say we give him at least three weeks before we make any assumptions. A week to get back, a week to talk with officials, a week to return. It would probably take shorter to get back, actually, since he's not being slowed down by bringing less seasoned travellers with him. But he'll have an even larger group when he returns, so I'm giving him the extra time.
this sounds like the beginning of Ba sing Se
>>33525482The kind who knows that loved ones die right after you tell them you love them before the big battle. Do you even waste countless hours on tvtropes?
>>33525133Can we ask mom about this
>>33525337>>33525351>>33525360>>33525382Not wanting to stand around and do nothing, you decide to speak with Felna, who is standing on the far side of the base, going through the motions of Firebending without actually creating fire, just going through the techniques.She stops when she sees you, giving you her full attention. You can see that she's afraid, but that she's as prepared as anyone else to see this thing through."Hey, Shin," she greets. "Do you need something?">A. Thank her for saving you earlier>B.

"I couldn't keep it a secret forever.""Thank you for saving me," she tells you. She smiles. "You're welcome. I'm happy to play the hero every now and again.""So, I was wondering if you could teach me to breathe fire," you tell her.She chuckles. "One final lesson before the big battle? Alright. Like I told you before, Firebending comes from the breath. You need to take a deep breath, and where you would normally let the fire it fuels within you escape through your hands, you instead unleash it through your mouth. In my experience, adding a roar helps.">A. A roar? Seriously?>B. Ask where she learned to do that>C. Try it (75 or higher)>D. Dialogue writein

It builds in your chest, growing stronger and stronger until you release it with a roar, letting a torrent of flames shoot from your mouth and into the air.Felna grins from ear to ear.
