Water, Earth, Fire, and Air. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony, but everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them. But when the world needed him most, he vanished. The world slowly smoldered as the Air Nomads were eradicated by the Fire Nation, leaving nothing but empty homes in their wake. The Fire Nation has already started a full-scale campaign on the Southern Water Tribe, beginning the cycle of death anew.Fifty years this war has raged, scorching the forests and destroying lives. Many have died and all hope of the Avatar's return has been extinguished, but life goes on. The walls of Ba Sing Se, Omashu, and the Northern Water Tribe have held the Fire Nation at bay, seemingly nothing can penetrate them. As always, there is also solace in wandering.But this isn't a story about the Avatar, or a king, or even a hero, this is the story of Kuo, a wandering Firebender.>Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Hundred+Year+War+Quest>Thread 2 because 4chan broke: http://archive.4plebs.org/tg/thread/42620238>Character sheet: http://pastebin.com/dvvubPQK>The Cast so far: http://pastebin.com/VTf6evPR
You wake up particularly well-rested and look over on the floor of the room to see Shinji stretching out and yawning. The hot sunlight shines in through the window into a patch of golden color on the floor, showing you that the sun has just risen. Shinji finishes his routine and looks up at you with a small bark. You take a small piece of jerky from your bag and give him a small bit of water from your canteen. The wolf-raccoon now seems satisfied, and begins wagging his striped tail.You pull on your tan clothes, still perfectly suited to the heat, and brush your hand against a new piece of paper in your bag. You pull it out and it has the White Lotus symbol on it, but it lacks an envelope, simply seeming to be a note."Do not seek us out, or else you may lose your opportunity. A word of advice, keep an eye open as you sleep."It seems the two men you saw here payed you a visit.>Fill your canteens and set out (1 gold)>You probably have enough water, set out>Go shopping>Look around town for something interesting>Try to find the old men>Write-in

Going to write this, be glad you rolled well.
You should probably fill your water and head out, Ba Sing Se is still a long way off and across an inlet. You know that getting water from the oasis costs a gold, practically robbery but absolutely necessary. Then you realize something very important, you don't have Earth Kingdom currency and Fire Nation coin would not work here. Then you have a brilliant idea, you take your coins and place them between the palms of your hands. Your palms heat up and the gold begins to flatten into uniform discs, scouring Azulon's face off the coins.By the time you do this to all of your coins, you're certain that these will work out here in the country, but Ba Sing Se may be another story. You pick up your bag and Shinji follows you out to the bar, the place is deserted, save the innkeeper, and you hand him the keys to your room.The sun burns your eyes as you exit the shade of the inn, and you got to the middle of town and fill your canteen. The attendant doesn't even bat an eye at your coin.The Oasis dissappears behind you as you begin walking north to Ba sing Se.>Roll me 1d100 for an encounter.

The sands roll on for miles and miles, and you walk for two days, resting during the high noon. You walk forward at a steady rate, waiting for the fringes of the day to make your trek. The canteen the Sandbenders gave you runs out just as you reach the river leading out from Full Moon Bay to the sea. You continue walking east, along the river towards Serpent's Pass. You hope to find a ferry before you make it close to that damnable strip of land, but it might be a necessity.As the sun begins to set, you see a large, red boat on the shore next to a huge red and white striped tent. The wind blows your way and the sound of bouncy music reaches your ears. This must be a circus, you've never seen one before, but you hear of them all the time. You hear constantly that they're fun, maybe you should go. They must be resting to practice, there's nobody here but you.>Go check it out>Walk past and try to find a ferry>Write-in

Okay, time to write.
You walk up to the tent and the music gets louder, to the point of almost being deafening. There is a flap open to the tent so you go inside, and the smell of fried food, makeup, and burnt hair fill your nostrils. A man runs past you with his hair on fire and jumps into the river, breathing a sigh of relief as his head slightly smokes."Dammit Po, stop trying to blow fire, it's a terrible act. We need somebody who could actually do it, and I don't see any Firebenders around who aren't going to actively try to kill us." A man in thick makeup with a thin, twirly mustache is standing next to you. He speaks in a way that sounds like he's trying to sell something."Toto, at least I'm trying. If you were the one who had to come up with acts, we'd still be on the "amazing" Earthbending squirrel!""Hey, it wasn't my fault Tipi tripped and the rock squashed it! We could have got a new one but noooo, 'We don't want to traumatize more people, let's leave this be.'">Interrupt them and ask for passage across the river>Mention that you're a Firebender>Walk away slowly>Write-in

"Hey, could you guys ferry me across the river, I'd be willing to pay." They both turn to you and in a unified tone shout."NO! We're closed!""Well that isn't very nice, I just wanted t-" You feel the ground beneath your feet shudder and the next thing you know, a pillar of earth shoots you into the air. The wind whizzes by you as you fly over the river and the opposite side grows closer. The last thing you see is the ground come up under you and you black out."H.y.I..ou.d...meth.ng!" What was that?"I.s.a.per...!" Your eyes flutter."G.t..el.!" You see a figure standing above you and sleep claims you again.You feel vaguely aware of a pain in your arm.>Roll 1d10 for how long you are out.

You wake up in a bed you are unfamiliar with, but with a familiar feeling on your chest. Shinji is resting on your chest and when your eyes open his tail starts wagging and barks at you happily. You bring your arm up to pat his head and are immediately shot with an immense pain as you rotate your wrist. You bring it up to look at it and it seems to be in a makeshift splint.The door opens and a small voice rings out, "Dandelion, stop barking, the rest of us are trying to sleep." A small boy with a candle walks in while rubbing his eyes. Then he realizes you're sitting up and rushes out of his room. A few minutes later a woman, obviously a farmer, walks in and speaks to you."Utemi found you out in the field, you were just lying there and your wrist was turned all the way around. The doctor said you were really lucky, you could have lost your hand.">"Thank you, where am I?">"Thank you, but I have to leave?">"How long have I been out?">Write-in
>>43109371>"Thank you, where am I?">"How long have I been out?">Circus people are assholes.
>>43109371>"Thank you, where am I?"
>>43109371>>43109397I'll back this whole selection.
Okay, writing. This should be the last update, wasn't kidding about this being a short thread.
"Thank you, where am I? How long have I been out for?" Your head hurts like it got put in a vice."You were out for 3 weeks, my daughter Utemi found you in the fields and brought you to the village doctor. This is Wūgòu Village, not much to speak of, nothing much happens here. Though that may change soon, word has it the Fire Nation is making its way here from the east. Where are my manners? I'm Wisho, my son who you just saw was Haah. Utemi is asleep right now, and my husband Fih is getting the doctor.""I'm Kuo, and this is Shinji." She smiles a bit."Haah insisted on calling him Dandelion, where are you from?" Your heart skips a beat even though you end up telling the truth."Omashu, but I've been pretty much everywhere.""Well, get some sleep, you need to heal up before you can get back to travelling. The doctor should be here soon."Your eyes feel heavy and you pass out again with one thought.Circus people are assholes.>Thread end, sorry for the length, twitter is @xLostCowboyx, will stop by and answer questions occasionally. Did not plan any of this.
>>43109856Short but weird. Fun.On the plus side, we now have an undercover name for Shinji.Now we just need to come up with something for us. Something suitable. Manly. Inspiring. Earthy.We shall be Dong Rock, Hero of the Earth Kingdom.
>>43110031That's stupid, a plan like that could never work.
>>43110310Dong Rock does not understand your negativity. Only justice.
>>43110404In Chinese, Dong means both Cave and Thoroughly, so you might be "Cave Rock" or "Thoroughly Rock".
>>43110501HA! It's actually a viable name.
>>43110501Dong Rock is thoroughly rock. He is solid to his core.
I'm late, darn.Concerned-Kun, regarding last thread (I missed two in a row now, damn), to delete a post from mobile you have to scroll to the bottom and disengage mobile viewing. After deleting from the full site, you can reenable mobile from the same spot.
>>43108202I'm kinda hoping we get to train in Pai Sho with some of the old farts from Last Airbender, before they were old.>>43108721>>43108734Wait, we best of five? I thought it was best of 3.>>43109856Damn, I missed it altogether. That's three now.Dong Rock is a fantastic undercover name though.
