So has Ba Sing Se been founded yet? if so who currently controls it?our world map should provide a kingdom/empire name if it has been.
>>603543how dare you
So SOMWhat are the chances of us stumbling onto a new kind/rare type of bending?Like >>600797
Mauya's departure effectively leaves you alone to watch over Lantana until she wakes up. You're far from alone, as many villagers stop to stare at the unconscious girl, whispering about the amazing things she did with her bending. Like Mauya, a few even stop to get confirmation that Lantana is, in fact, the Avatar. You're as polite as you can be, generally giving short, direct answers to their questions and getting them to leave as quickly as possible. Finally being left mostly alone, you think a bit on what Mauya had said. "It looks like she's been keeping secrets from you."Lantana did claim that she only knew how to Earthbend, yet she used Waterbending against that monster, and it looked as if she used Airbending as well. She couldn't have just learned to use that kind of bending out of nowhere, could she?A groan pulls you from your thoughts, and you look down to see Lantana's eyes fluttering open. With a gasp, she bolts upright, looking around frantically. When she sees you standing over her, she calms down, but looks extremely confused."Sei?" she asks in a befuddled tone. "What happened?">A. She doesn't remember?>B. She beat up the monster with Waterbending>C. (Lie) You saved her from the monster>D. You don't really know>E. Something else
>>603586We would have to be in a pretty shitty situation to discover metalbending.Something like toph's situation, essentially.Trapped in a metal fuckin' cage.
>>603593>B. She beat up the monster with Waterbending
>>603593>D. You don't really know>A. She doesn't remember?>B. She beat up the monster with Waterbending
>>603586I'm not going to say no to all of those, you could theoretically pull an Iroh and develop some tricks by watching other benders, but it will not be easy.>>603584Ba Sing Se is its own kingdom
>>603593>A. She doesn't remember?>B. She beat up the monster with Waterbending"But how? You said you only knew earthbending, and i've never seen you use anything else before.">>603614With metalbending, you aren't actually bending the metal itself, you're just bending the impurities in the metal. You don't need some special powers to do it, you just have to be a really good earthbender and get lots of practice.
>>603593A and B
>>603593>A. She doesn't remember?>B. She beat up the monster with Waterbending
>>603625According to Legend of Korra (I know, I know), only one in a hundred benders could actually metalbend after it was discovered
>>603614Making earth flow like water wehnTigerdillo wehnEarth swimming wehnEarth armour wehn
>>603593>>A. She doesn't remember?>>B. She beat up the monster with Waterbending
>>603625"You don't remember?" you ask Lantana, suddenly feeling just as confused as her.She shakes her head. "No...I remember falling into the water, and then that thing coming at us, and then I woke up here."Picking herself up, she gives you a curious look. "Did you beat the monster?"Now, you're even more confused. Nevertheless, you explain to her that she was the one who defeated the monster by using a mix of Earthbending and Waterbending. Lantana listens to your story, but you can tell she's having some serious trouble believing it, and unless she's a magnificent actress, her reaction tells you that Mauya was wrong about her keeping secrets from you. "But, I don't know how to Waterbend," she reminds you. "And I've never done anything like that with Earthbending. How is that possible?"You watch as she tries to come up with some sort of explanation, but it quickly becomes apparent that she isn't having any luck. In the end, she simply shrugs it off."Well, we're alive," she tells you optimistically. "I guess it doesn't really matter how it happened.">A. You guess not>B. You disagree, you'd really like to know how that happened>C. Suggest changing clothes>D. Suggest talking to Yun to get across the river>E. Mention that Mauya's a Waterbender>F. Something else
>>603638"Despite how widespread metalbending would become over the next 70 years, it is noted that only one out of a hundred earthbenders ever master the art, though metalbending master Suyin Beifong believes the only real limitation in learning the ability are the ones a person places on themselves. When Suyin first taught Korra metalbending, she got her to feel the fine pieces of earth inside a metal meteorite sculpture."http://avatar.wikia.com/wiki/Metalbending
>>603771>D. Suggest talking to Yun to get across the river
>>603771>B. You disagree, you'd really like to know how that happened>E. Mention that Mauya's a Waterbender>F. Find out what the fuck the thing that attacked us was
>>603771B and E
>>603771>B. You disagree, you'd really like to know how that happened"Well maybe its something only you can do since your the avatar, I mean you were water bending and air bending a while go. Any ideas?">E. Mention that Mauya's a Waterbender
>>603771>A.>E.Feeling better today Som?
>>603818Better than yesterday
>>603824"There's nothing very dangerous in the lake" -Lying ass fishermanTime to be mildly upset.
>>603829It's a river, and he did mention Catgators
>>603829You dont expect a sea monster to swim up the god damn river.
>>603836Was that a catgator though?I remember very little from yesterday or whenever it was due to reasons.But that thing just started eating people, man.
>>603614But is there war there?
>>603815>>603812>>603791Lantana's trying to shrug this off as no big deal, but really only because she doesn't have any answers. You tell her that you'd like to know what's going on.She sighs. "So would I, but I don't know how to figure it out. I mean, I think whatever happened happened because I'm the Avatar, so I don't really know who to ask about something like that."That is a fair point. You doubt that you, or anybody else in the village would be able to tell her too much about what she did. The stories you've heard about the Avatar mentioned the ability to use all four elements, but Lantana says that she has to be taught to use the different kinds of bending. Maybe she's wrong, and she's known how to use all four all along, but you somehow doubt that's it. She seemed almost like another person at the end of that battle with the monster, and she claims not to be able to remember any of it."Sei?" she asks, drawing out out of your thoughts.Lantana looks at you with a worried expression. "Are you okay?">A. Yeah, you're just thinking>B. Tell her that if she needs to learn the other elements, there is a Waterbender in this village>C. Suggest crossing the river now>D. Something else
>>603847Yes it was.Also another thread so soon. You are spoilling me SOM.
>>603871>A. Yeah, you're just thinking>B. Tell her that if she needs to learn the other elements, there is a Waterbender in this village
>>603847No, it was not a catgator>>603889Don't get too comfy, next thread after this won't be until at least friday
>>603906>>603889Then i definitely want to find out what the fuck that was.We should talk to the fisherman and that girl we saved, i guess.
>>603871>A. Yeah, you're just thinkingAnd yes that is why you are smelling something burning.Or. I guess my hed is way to rock hard to think about this.>B. Tell her that if she needs to learn the other elements, there is a Waterbender in this village
>>603906B-b-baka it's not like i enjoy your quests or anything.
>>603937Well then, you should be fine
If we get good enough with earth bending, can we go green lantern with it?
>>603962I think we could but it would take a lot of training. You mean creating whatever type of constructs our imagination could think of right? I just kind of want to make giant fists.
>>603880>>603896"Yeah, I'm fine," you assure her. "I'm just thinking."Lantana gives you a nod, and you decide to change the subject, telling her that, if she really needs to learn to use the other three elements, this village has a Waterbender.Her face lights up with wonder, and the excitement in her voice sounds not unlike a child on their birthday. "Really? A Waterbender?""Yeah," you tell her. "Mauya.""Mauya?" Lantana asks, sounding a bit surprised, but extremely excited. "Well, let's go find her, come on!"She dashes past you, rushing through the village in search of the young Waterbender. You follow along as she makes her way from building to building, asking people if they've seen the other girl. Eventually, you're directed to the river, where you see Mauya putting a fishing spear into a canoe."Mauya!" Lantana shouts, rushing toward the girl.Mauya turns toward Lantana's voice, giving the other girl a confused look. "Yeah?" she asks, curiosity in her voice."Is it true you're a Waterbender?" Lantana asks.Mauya throws a look your way before nodding at your friend."Yeah," she answers.Calming down a bit, Lantana asks if Mauya would be willing to teach her Waterbending.Mauya fidgets a bit, looking somewhat uncomfortable. "Well, I'm not that great of a Waterbender. I only know the basic stuff.""That's okay," Lantana assures her."I don't know any of it!""But, what about what you did to that monster?" Mauya counters."I don't really know how I did that," Lantana admits. "I don't even remember doing it.">A. Tell Mauya she doesn't have to help>B. Tell Mauya that Lantana has to start somewhere, and that even the basics could be useful>C. Keep out of the conversation>D. Something else
>>604000>B. Tell Mauya that Lantana has to start somewhere, and that even the basics could be useful
>>604000>D. "We won't force you or anything, but we'd be in your debt if you could even teach her the basics. It'd be really helpful if she could use waterbending consciously. Plus, you'd be the one that taught the avatar how to waterbend."
>>604000>B. Tell Mauya that Lantana has to start somewhere, and that even the basics could be useful>>604023I like this
>>603771>F. Something elseSuggest that we ask Mauya to help us get across the river.It would be handy to have waterbender on board if another fish would decide to make snack of us.
>>604000A and B"You don't have any reason to help us, but even the basics could really help"
Imma change this >>604040 to this >>604023
>>604023>>604020"Lantana has to start somewhere," you tell Mauya. "We won't force you or anything, but we'd be in your debt if you could even teach her the basics. It'd be really helpful if she could use Waterbending and still remember how she did it afterword."Mauya looks less confused and nervous at the idea, more like she's mulling it over."Plus, you'd be the one who taught the Avatar to Waterbend," you add.A large grin slowly appears on Mauya's face. Clearly, that suggestion pleases her quite a bit. Whether fame's a motivator to her or if there's something more to it than that, she seems to have been convinced to give it a go."Alright," she tells Lantana. "I'll teach you what I know. Like I said, though, it's not a whole lot."Lantana is beaming once again. "Thank you so much."Mauya can't resist smiling back. "Don't mention it.">A. Ask when they'll be starting>B. Ask if you can stick around and watch>C. Give them some privacy and go find something else to do>D. Something else
>>604086>>B. Ask if you can stick around and watchmaybe we'll learn something
>>604086>C.>D. Practice earthbending
>>604086>B. Ask if you can stick around and watchMight as well start now if we're going to try this thing
>>604086CD practice We have no reason to watch them as we would just be a distraction We should try to hone our own skills
>>604099Hey, no, you're not allowed to be sensible
>>604086Disregard women. Acquire gains!>>604099
>>604086>A large grin slowly appears on Mauya's face. Clearly, that suggestion pleases her quite a bit. Whether fame's a motivator to her or if there's something more to it than that, she seems to have been convinced to give it a go.Saying it right now. Either we max out her social link or she betrays us later. I played that drum before
>>604099Not like we can apply the water bending basics yet, first we have to focus on actually getting better at earth bending instead of trying to become a jack of trades early.
>>604133But Som what about the gains, and teaching someone is a little intimate.
>>604086>>604133>B. Ask if you can stick around and watch>D. Practice Earthbending (stone bullet)
>>604165Gonna count this as a vote for practicing Earthbending
>>604086>>604099>>604130>C/D. Give them some privacy and go practice earthbending Particularly our fine control over earth, so we can make spikes and do other high skill feats.
>>604176Just let it happen, som.>>604182We want the stone bullet technique.
>>604155Chill a little with the paranoia anon.Maybe she just like some mud-shipping
>>604099>>604130While the girls begin their Waterbending Practice, you decide to go work on your Earthbending. You tell them that you'll see them in a bit, then go to find some place out of the way to do your training.The question you consider as you find a spot is what kind of Earthbending you want to do. You could go over the moves you already know. Practicing them will allow you to use them more easily.Then again, you could try and come up with a different technique. You aren't sure if you can make something up in the time you have, but it might be worth a try.>A. Work on improving what you know (23)>B. Stone Bullet: Hurl a tiny stone with the might you usually use on larger rocks, creating a surprising and painful attack (80)>C. Stone Armor: Coat yourself in armor made of stone, making you more resistant to attacks (85)>D. Stone fists: Coat your fists in stone, allowing you to use strong and painful melee attacks (74)Note: pick only one
B-But if we leave the girls will bond without usWe can help with the training, provide targets and such with earthbending
>>604220>A.I vote in the hopes it would lower the rolls for the others I really want those earth fists. Sooo badly
>>604220>C. Stone Armor: Coat yourself in armor made of stone, making you more resistant to attacks (85)Walking tank incoming
>>604220>A. Work on improving what you know (23)Since if we score better, the more we improve.
>>604220>C. Stone Armor: Coat yourself in armor made of stone, making you more resistant to attacks (85)
>>604220>A. Work on improving what you know (23)
>>604220>>A. Work on improving what you know (23)
>>604220>85Shit, we have to get better at bending before we can learn anything.>A. Work on improving what you know (23)
>>604220>A. Work on improving what you know (23)Start with basic, others option's high DC is likely to waste our training session, and maybe if we get better in general then DC for specialized technique will be lower.
>>604220>A. Work on improving what you know (23)DC for the others is a bit high. Better work on the basics.

>>604381Earthbending is hard
>>604353>>604357>>604361There's really no way of knowing if you'll have enough time to actually teach yourself any new techniques, so you decide to simply practice what you know. What was it your dad used to say? "Don't fear the man who has practiced a thousand techniques once, fear the one who has practiced one technique a thousand times."It's not quite a thousand times, but you do go through what you know multiple times, practicing everything from hurling rocks to making pits. How much time passes, you really aren't sure, but you figure sometime around an hour. You work up a healthy sweat, and finally decide that you've done enough for now. It's been a long day already, and there's no telling what else waits for you. Calling it quits for the day, you make your way back to the spot where the two girls were practicing Waterbending. Mauya and Lantana stand side by side, manipulating the water in front of them, pushing and pulling to create their own small tides. You somehow doubt that's all they've been doing for the past hour, and figure they must be ending their training with something simple. "Alright, I think that's enough for today," Mauya says, turning to Lantana. Your friend has a very disappointed tone when she next speaks. "Do we have to stop? This is great.""Sorry, but I have work to do," Mauya tells her. "If you're still around tomorrow, we can practice some more.">A. Ask how it went>B. Tell Lantana that the two of you should really get going>C. Keep out of the conversation>D. Something else
I just realized our mom thinks we're dead. probably should have left a message or something so that she would know we didn't die.

>>604414>A.That's good advice from dad
>>604419That army had it's shit pushed in.We killed their fuckin' leader.They chased us into the woods and continued to look for us after we escaped.They don't give one rat fuck about an empty village after that.
>>604416Mom, most likely was captured and tortured untill death by the airbender lady.
Rolled 39 (1d100)>>604414C
>>604414>A. Ask how it went>D. Ask her if she can help teach you combat bending, since she's better than you anyways and you don't actually know anything but the basics (be sure to tell her that, since she might not realize)
>>604436I expect them to keep our family alive to use as leverage for the avatar
>>604435>>604435You must be new to Som's quest. I give it one more day at most till the army comes
>>604441>admiting your weakness to a woman>you cray cray dude?
>>604449Of course they're still coming, but they probably left the village alone.Maybe raided it for supplies, but they would have left quickly to search for us.>>604453She's the avatar.
>>604448Well they already have dad. So they don't need ALL of our family to have such leverage.
>>604462So was Korra.
>>604494Yes? And?They're both badass.If there was ever a woman to admit you're weaker than, it'd be the avatar.We don't know shit about earthbending really, we're just natural at it.If there was ever someone to learn bending from, it'd be the avatar.
>>604423"How did it go?" you ask, approaching the two girls."Not bad," Mauya answers. "Lantana's a fast learner."Grinning at the compliment, Lantana tells Mauya that she was a good teacher, then proceeds to ask how your training went. You tell her that you just practiced the basics, but add that you think you've made some improvements."Good," she tells you with a smile. "Keep up the good work, okay? It's kind of nice having someone to watch my back.">A. Likewise>B. Suggest moving on>C. Ask if she'd be willing to help you train in Earthbending>D.

>attempt to launch a slab across the river and land it softly on the other side
>>604671Hi there anon. Are you OK?
>>604695>>604703He's talking about training by skipping giant slabs of rock across the lake and trying to fight against the momentum to make them land softly. Basically to get better at controlling our stone throwing abilities. Or maybe not.
>>604695>>604703Wasn't paying attention to the time. Idea to get across quickly if we can do it.
>>604550>>604555>>604569>>604589>>604591"Likewise," you tell the Avatar. Lantana smiles wider at this, and you decide to make a request of her. Your Earthbending has been improving, but she just seems to be at a different level altogether from where you are. With that in mind,you ask if she'd be willing to help you train in Earthbending.Lantana seems taken aback. "You need my help? But you're already good at Earthbending. Remember how you killed Jungo?""You mean when he got lucky?" Mauya corrects. "Even he admits that.""Well, if you really want some help, then sure, I can train with you," Lantana answers. Speaking of training."Mauya, why don't you come with us?" you request of the Waterbender.Now, it's her turn to be taken aback. "Me? Why?""To keep teaching Lantana Waterbending," you explain."So, you want me to just leave home and go Spirits-know-where with you?" Mauya asks. "And you know I'm not very good at Waterbending; I doubt I'd be much help.">A. If she comes with the two of you, she could learn to be a better Waterbender (74)>B. It'll be an adventure, much better than living here (80)>C. It's a chance to go on an adventure with the Avatar and save the world (53)>D. Please, the two of you need her help (71)

>>604723>>B. It'll be an adventure, much better than living here (80)
>>604723ALL OF THEMThey're all good reasons."Haven't you ever wanted to see the world beyond your village? To know what's out there? And it's not like you'd be leaving forever, you could go home whenever you wanted to, if you really felt like it. It'd be a good chance to polish your own skills, and you'd be making a big difference in the world, changing it for the better. You don't have to answer right away, just think it over."

>>604807>>604811>>604740"It's a chance to go on an adventure with the Avatar and save the world," you tell the girl.Mauya mulls it over for a moment. "Let me go talk to some of the others, I'll meet you back here soon. Don't go anywhere."As Mauya walks away, Lantana looks over at you. "So, is that why you're travelling with me?" she asks. "So you can say you helped the Avatar save the world?">A. Yes>B. No, you want to stop that army>C. Does it matter?>D. You want to find out what happened to your dad, and keep your mother safe>E.

>>604949>E. Something elseDC to follow her unnoticed?I ain't having this
>>604949>D. You want to find out what happened to your dad, and keep your mother safe>E. Something elseAnd we make a good team. I like someone that enjoys my rocking puns.
>>604949>E. No, I'm not traveling with you so I can say I helped the Avatar save the world. I'm traveling with you so I can help *you* save the world.
>>604949>E. "Not really, not that it isn't a nice bonus. With that army after me, my village is in danger if i stay there, so it's best to stay on the move until the heat dies down. Plus, my traveling companion is pretty cute too. There weren't many women my age back in the village. Why do you ask, though? Would my presence be less welcome if i were just in it for glory?"
>>604975this also because i know its a bad idea
>>604949>B, D, I don't know where the rest of my village went, and it's nice having someone around that laughs of my rock puns, even if they aren't marblelous
>>604949>>604994Okay changing my vote to this.
>4th or 5th session>have met 3 females around MCs age>trying to waifu the first one who was around more than three updatesWe did this with Tofoo, and we missed out on Misa, Suno, Lazuli, and Lapis. Stop it.

>>604949E. I-It's not like I like you or anything! Baka!
>>605028Do we pick just one? If it is just one i will go with>A
>>604949>E. You look cute when you're flustered ;)
>>605071Then i keep my vote.
>>604949>>D. You want to find out what happened to your dad, and keep your mother safe
>>605037>>604994"No," you answer. "I want to stop that army, find out what happened to my dad, and keep my mom safe. Besides, I don't know where the people from my village went, and it's nice to have someone around that laughs at my rock puns, even if they aren't marbelous."Lantana laughs, and you can't help but smile. You've only known her for a day, but you get the feeling that the two of you have already become good friends.When she stops laughing, she gives you a smile. "Thanks for being honest with me. So, why did you want to bring Mauya? She told us she can't teach me much more.">A. The two of you need all the help you can get>B. You think she's pretty>C. A little bit more training is better than none>D. Something else
>>605161>A. The two of you need all the help you can get>C. A little bit more training is better than none"Plus it wouldn't hurt to see how other benders do their own bending, who knows there might be something there I can use to help improve my earth bending to an unknown area that hasn't been tried yet."
>>605161>B. You think she's prettyThis answer is calling to me
>>605161>D. Something else"Keep your friends close and... Well you know the rest"I'm not falling for it
>>605161A and BNEVER DEVIATE FROM NEG AVENUE
>>605161>A. The two of you need all the help you can get
>>605166>A. The two of you need all the help you can get.
>>605161>A. The two of you need all the help you can get>C. A little bit more training is better than none
>>605161>A>CNeed the help. Your skills will grow together too.
>>605161>A. The two of you need all the help you can get>C. A little bit more training is better than none>D"Maybe we can learn from each other, improve our bending with knowledge of others. I'm sure we could come up with some cool Earthbending techniques inspired by Waterbending."
>>605161>A, C, and maybe from watching Waterbending I can figure out how to Mudbend
>>605161>C.>D. We're all learning, right? That way we can improve ourselves through competing sort of, when we go to find your masters.
>>605013Wait there were 2 chicks named lapis and lazuli? Were they twins?
>>605013>>605286Lapis was a dude
>>605311We're they twins tho
>>605286No, Lapis is the brother. I think he meant to type Lunch.
>>605173>>605184>>605186You answer that the two of you need all the help you can get, and that Mauya providing her with a little bit of training is better than no training at all. "Good point," she agrees. "I just hope she knows what she's getting into. You and I both know this won't be easy; I hope she knows that, too.""I'm ready to go!"Looking over, you see Mauya approaching. A spear is clutched in her right hand, and a bag bulging with supplies hangs from her back. She seems to have packed all that she'll need."That was fast," Lantana comments, impressed."Not really," Mauya answers. "Anyway, are we leaving now?">A. Yeah, ask if she can get you across the river>B. Yeah, head South and go through the Serpent's Pass>C. Something else
>>605321>B. Yeah, head South and go through the Serpent's PassWhat could possibly go wrong
>>605321>>B. Yeah, head South and go through the Serpent's Pass
>>605321>B. Yeah, head South and go through the Serpent's Pass
>>605321>A. Yeah, ask if she can get you across the river
>>605330>>605327>>605333Gonna be a long trip, guys, you sure you're up for taking that route?
>>605321>A.I thought we were going north to the temple
>>605321>>A. Yeah, ask if she can get you across the river
>>605346I just want to make things as hard as possible desu, more fun that way
>>605321Cross the river.That thing already fucked off, so it's probably safe now.Speaking of, WHAT THE FUCK WAS IT?
>>605321>>A. Yeah, ask if she can get you across the riverCome on you assholes we all know what the serpent's pass is
>>605359No its not, especially when we have no reason for it IC since we are trying to get away from the army and head to the North Temple as fast as possible.
>>605321>>A. Yeah, ask if she can get you across the riverWhy would we take a land route when we can just cross the river here?
>>605321>"Not really," Mauya answers.
>>605369We do though, people saw the avatar trying to cross the river and beat up a giant snake, you think no one is going to hear about that?
>>605368Not in-character>>605350That is the most direct way, or you can go South, over the Great Divide, through the Serpent's Pass up near Ba Sing Se, then up to one of the narrower bodies of water or up and around them to reach the mountains
>>605321>AWe killed the river monster, we get to travel safely.
>>605376How much do you expect a peasant to have?
>>605381What's the expected difference in time between the two trips?
>>605388Several weeks to a few months
>>605384Enough to kill us
>>605335>>605356"Yeah," you answer. "Can you help us get across the river?""Sure," Mauya tells you, strolling past you and Lantana as she makes her way toward a canoe. "That thing swam off, so we should be fine."She throws her things into the canoe, and the three of you climb aboard, setting out across the river. This time, no monsters attack you, and no fishermen get thrown from their canoes or bore you to death with long stories. It's a simple, peaceful trip, and when you reach the other side, the three of you grab your bags, staring out at the landscape ahead of you.There's no forest, not really even any trees to speak of. All you see is an endless, grassy plain. "Wow," Lantana gasps. Mauya rolls her eyes. "Trust me, it's not that exciting.">A. Ask if she's been here before>B. Head North>C. Something else
>>605467>>B. Head North>C. Something else>It's all about perspective ya know
>>605467>A. Ask if she's been here before>C. Something tells me our trip will be very exciting
>>605467>>B. Head North
>>605467>B. Head North>C. Begin whistling a cheery adventuring montage tune
>>605467>A. Ask if she's been here before>C. Something elseHide the canoe somewhere near by, away from the shore. >B. Head North
>>605481>>605491Something like this
>>605486>>605491>>605493"Have you been here before?" you ask Mauya."Sure, plenty of times," she answers. "When people from the village get tired of fish, we sometimes come hunting here. These plains stretch all the way to the next river in the East, and the mountains to the North.""Wow, I've never seen anything like that," Lantana comments. "Most places I've been were covered in forest."You nod in agreement, while Mauya shrugs. "Well, you'll get to see plenty of it. I haven't gone too far; like I said, these plains stretch on a long way."The three of you start North, following the river toward the great mountains which house the Air Temple. Mauya may take the place for granted, but you find yourself greatly enjoying the sights as you make your way. Birds of many colors fly high above, an Ostrich Horse drinks from the river, ignoring the three of you as you approach. Boar-q-pines growl and fight one another in the distance, and you spot a Catgator plunging into the river to find its dinner. Lantana seems enthralled by all of this, and even Mauya seems somewhat interested. As for yourself, you can't help but whistle.The three of you are in for an adventure.>End UpdatesThat's all for tonight, guys, sorry it was a bit short, but my computer was giving me troubles.Follow me @qmdralo to see when new threads are up.I plan to run this Friday, and I will probably stop in here a few times between now and then to address questions and such, or for short sessions.As is my custom, I will stick around for a whileI hope you all had fun

>>605590If we survive long enough, are the arcs going to be broken into books?If so what book are we in right now?
>>605608That remains to be seen, but either Air or Water>>605607I try
>>605590Is our village still empty or the people slowly coming back if the army left.
>>605623Mostly empty, but a few people stuck around

Thanks for running Som, I look forward to the next obstacle. Is there going to be a rival or some sort of enemy lieutenant that we will continually cross paths with?
>>605711Loved the quest SOM. Keep the good work.
>>606697I will try>>605882PossiblyProbably
Som I noticed a lack of tigerdillo posting this threadTigerdillos when
>>607816Don't you mean Armadillo Lions?
>>607833you running today?
>>607990He isn't running until Friday
>>607990Afraid not, sorry, anon>>608242I'll hang out for a bit if anyone has questions or anything, though
>>608353Which girl would you prefer we waifu?
>>608386I really don't care, that's not exactly the most important part of the quest to me.
>>608242Zuko has some mediocre taste in waifus
>>608415Idunno, Mai was willing to do pretty much anything for him, so at least he chose one who was devoted.
>>608402do you hate earthbinders because you hate city planning and landscaping or because they throw rocks and make pillars?
>>608445Their powers just seemed the most boring to me. But I wouldn't say I hate Earth, it's just probably my least favorite of the elements
>>608418He has shit taste for not picking Azula
>>608538>IncestCome on now
>>608554Step out of your comfort zone. You might like it.
>>608454What's your favourite element then?
>>608806why are you running an earthbender quest if you hate earthbending?do you just want to watch an overconfident earthbender die?
>>608418Except he didn't choose Mai. >>608454>>608806Objectively shit tastes. >>609014People voted for Earthbender over Waterbender.
>>608806>>609014>Korrafag>KatarahagfagfaceI'm so disappointed in you SOM
By the end of this quest i want us to be pushing around mountains, Also we might be able to invent magma bending as magma is just superheated Stone
>>608454See Thats why i want to try and create magma bending, We could become a walking volcano
>>609258OP, pls nerf>>609014Anons voted for it, and again, I don't hate it, it's just my least favorite>>609130P-pls no bully
>>609253>>609258Still not sure where you guys think all the magma is going to come from but if we get to do it just one time after am eruption or something I am all for it.
>>609521We shall see
>>609521Well we could try to create molten rock by stirring a sphere of rock around itself, the friction generating heat, If we do it with sand we should get molten glass.
>>609687Unless my physics classes have failed me I think it would take more pressure, speed, and friction then we could produce currently. Now I may be wrong since its been a little bit since then. We might be able to if we are able to produce enough heat but it could also backfire on us. Now if we were somehow able to learn firebending, yes I know that we arnt the legendary one, we could do it safely to an extent.
>>609687>>609761It's still possible to make an earthbending vibroblade/ thermal blade with that amount of molecule quickening.
>>609761That is the thing, it would take alot of effort but would be worth it,
>>610156>>609805I have also noticed in alot of fights where we should be using lethal attacks we aren't Like the goat gorilla fight, If our aim is to kill we should show it, i doubt it would take much to make stone spears raise out of the ground. it would have helped while fishing too.
>>610184Instead of blundgeoning enemies to death, slash and stab. Or constrict.Shouldn't be hard to bend, slice, knap or press our projectiles into more lethal instruments. We're not restrained like in an animated show for young demographics.
>>610213Exactly. When we fight it should be with the determination to kill,
>>610184Because we have zero combat earth bending experience, there is a huge difference between us a village boy being taught the basics by our father and somehow having the same abilities of a trained earth bending soldier. The dice are going to be high since we never done things like that before.
>>610354The utilitary reasons for being able to produce an edge or a spike on command are innumerable.
>>610238>>610606The quest hasn't even been running for a week, m8. The rolls to pull that stuff off are too high to risk in critical moments. I'm sure it'll get easier to pull off moves like spikes once we gain more experience.
>>610631Oh, I'm talking about before the quest, as a young earthbender in a self-sufficient village. Day-to-day chores need specific tools, and what better tool than one you don't have to bring along all the time? An edge to fell trees and cut firewood, a spike to affix rope/ nail wood structures, prickly soil for practical pranks towards the drunks.With only two teenagers in a village, there's much time to learn about oneself and train.
Isn't the next step in the cycle Fire?AirWaterEarthFireWaterEarth + FireAirWe should be headed for a firebender next.
>>612217Yeah but she wanted to learn airbending. Hell with the rules. Maybe she can learn to fly and drop rocks on people
>>613073We're doing the backward order now.Look at him. Sei Fon is now the Captain.
