>Fire>Air>Water>EarthPreviously, on Avatar Quest.....Soon after your father left you, your mother, and Sena in charge of the settlement in his absence, you fell under attack by a group of bandits. After a fierce fight, Felna managed to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, killing several bandits and forcing the rest to retreat. Knowing it was only a matter of time until they returned in greater numbers, you and the others created a sand fortress on the beach and trained for the upcoming battle. Traps outside kept the bandits from making it into your base, until a pair of Airbenders joined the battle. They caused chaos in your base before being killed and fed to the Shark Turtle. You then confronted Ming, the bandit leader, who challenged you to a duel. It was a fierce battle, but eventually, you gained the upper hand, and Ming died of a mixture of injuries and exhaustion. For the next few weeks, nobody went far from the fortress, and your father soon returned. You were informed that the Queen wished to meet you, and after saying goodbye to those you wished to say goodbye to, you departed. After being escorted to the capital, you met the Queen in her throne room. She was very happy to see you, and she acted very pleasantly towards you. After answering a few questions, you demonstrated your Earthbending for her against one of her guards. The two of you spoke for a while longer before she showed you to your room. Falling asleep, you were confronted by the previous Avatar, who seemed rather unimpressed with you.

"Sounds like the Avatar State is the kind of thing I'd want going all the time," you tell him."No. Gonyo told me that is a VERY bad idea," he says. "I don't remember why, though....""Wait, in the Avatar State, I can draw on your memories?" you ask."I don't think it works quite that way," he responds. "Did you even remember what happened after you went out of the Avatar State? It's more of you stepping back and letting the rest of us work.""So, what else have Gonyo and Wan told you?" you ask. "What am I supposed to do now that I'm the Avatar?""Well, Wan and Gonyo spent their lives trying to stop war between the three kingdoms," he answers. "Gonyo ended the war, while Wan died in the beginning of it. Wan mentioned something about being "the bridge between worlds". Gonyo talked about maintaining peace. Seems kind of pointless; it's only been a little over thirty years since he died, and everyone is ready to go to war again. And if they do, well, you're no Avatar Wan, that's for sure.">A.

You're not really sure how you feel about somebody who can't remember his own name thinking that you're inferior in terms of intelligence."You really think that just because I died young, I'm the worst an Avatar can be?" he asks.

Let me tell you from experience that pissing off dangerous women carrying daggers is a BAD idea. I have to admit, I was really pissed seeing my successor almost die the same way. You need to work on being more diplomatic. Getting angry, insulting, and confrontational can usually get you killed. Play nice with everybody like you do with the Queen and Felna.

>>33827541C and A
So guys, are we going to fuck up in a period of two threads again?How long will we last?
>>33827738I think about two threads sounds right, Queen gets pissed at us cos she is waiting for us to tell her we are the avatar and locks us away then mind breaks us to become her slave
>>33827738We stopped worrying about combat rolls, but step up stupid decisions that get us killed....sounds about right, 2 threads it is.
>>33827840I'm half expecting that she actually won't do anything anytime soon. Let us get away with thinking we deceived her while she sends troops to take our family hostage. Then she confronts us.
>>33828092I don't think so. I think she would only do that if we actively deny that we are the Avatar.As far as she knows, we've been a pretty perfect guest so far and she would be to on our good side as long as possible.
>>33828130Thoughts on what we should say if she confronts us? I'm thinking we should admit to it and if she asks us why we hid it, explain that we are worried about being taken from our family and paraded around.
what would you guys think of seducing the queen then marrying her and assassinating her soon after that, then marrying Galda and having her be queen while keeping Felna on the side?
>>33828130That's the way I hope this is going, at least that's my plan on voting.
>>33828265Why would you do such a fucking thing
>>33828265Galda suxxxxxxKeep the plan, but make Felna queen and throw Galda in the nonbender dungeons.
>>33828265>keeping Felna on the sideNOFelna best waifu
>>33828226I agree, but we should also try to get a good grasp on what she's about first.
>>33828226Would be the only way I see us keeping our head.
>>33828265You are the worst
>>33828265I'd be up more for having Galda and Felna as co-queens/concubines. They can rule together and balance eachother out
>>33828265>waifuing>GaldaIt's like she didn't even try to kill is in a psychotic episode.
>>33828226I'd suggest something about how we simply wanted to come into our powers fully before we revealed our self to the world. It's not that we wanted to hide it from her, but we knew that if we worked for her as the Avatar we'd make enemies. We wanted to be strong enough to face those enemies first.
>>33828265Anon pls I want to be Avatar Zhuge liang not Avatar Cao cao Either Grill is fine though
>>33828404>Not wanting to be Avatar Sima YiDo you even want to reunite the Three Kingdoms before your dumbass descendents burn it all to the ground?
>>33828351B-but don't you love me...?>pic related>>33828368Good point as well. I'm sure she'll understand that.

Can't we just marry the Queen? She has been pleasant so far.
>>33828471>implying Liu Bei was actually related to the Imperial ClanLiu Bei's basically a Trickster Hero
>>33828490Liu Bei claimed as such, and so it shall be. It's more that Zhuge would advocate it
>>33828483People thought Hitler was pretty pleasant too anon. A single conversation means literally nothing.
>>33828483up until the moment she goes Yandere anon>>33828431not really I mean Zhuge liang was above all a Statesman, inventor & Scholar which kind of blends well with the way we have played Shin of late.>Inb4 BENEVOLENCE.Webm>Implying the Avatar isn't the biggest moralfag out there
>>33828595I'd rather be a Lu Su, that guy was cool and actually benevolent in his personal life as well.
>>33828746Zhuge Liang was also morally objectionable, if anything he'd want us to woo the Queen for a better political position, rat out Galda to gain favour with her, as well as do everything else needed.
>>33828821>Mfw Lu Su and Lu Bu meet in three kingdoms questThat's gonna be awkward
>>33828881Lu Su would be awesome though. We have a really strong top general and administrator core, just got get some military strategists. We lost a lot of middle rank generals though, would be nice to get few of those types as well.
>>33828850>Zhuge Liang was also morally objectionableHe was? please tell me more, most of my knowledge comes from the Dynasty warriors games & barebones research.
Well this is one way to keep a thread alive
>>33828974His plan for winning Liu Bei the Threekingdomb owl was to backstab Wu for Jing, backstab Liu Zhang for Yi, and then ally with Wu to take down Cao Cao.His treatment of Wei Yan was terrible as well. Basically slander Shu Han's most successful general so that your chosen successors can take over. Was he a bad person for the era? No, I think it was necessary. But he's not a Saint.
>>33828974Remember when he advocated invading Liu Bei'd relative's land? Or that time when in spite of his lord dying, and all of his brothers to Wu, he glossed over it and allied again?Or perhaps those times when he didn't stop mobilising the entire of Shu to attack Wei?Or perhaps that time he advised Liu Bei to effectively burn an entire city to the ground so Wei's forces would be delayed?And later in that event, when Liu Bei forced him to take the peasantry from said town with him, he advocated leaving them behind and riding ahead?
>>33829112>His plan for winning Liu Bei the Threekingdomb owl was to backstab Wu for Jing, backstab Liu Zhang for Yi, and then ally with Wu to take down Cao Cao.site a source on that? because if thats the case why did he go & Ally with Wu if thats what he was planning or even bother with the Northern expeditions?
>>33829203He allied with Wu so Cao Cao's million or so troops didn't curbstomp the shit out of Wu, and at that time, the absurdly tiny Shu.

>>33829203http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longzhong_Plan>The idea of seizing Jing Province in the Longzhong Plan was a flawed concept because Sun Quan would never accept Liu Bei in control of this critical area, crucial for the security of his base in Jiangdong. In essence, Zhuge Liang is charged with failing to make an objective analysis of the political situation in 207.Allying with Wu was always a necessity as Shu was always the weakest of the three powers. The Northern Expeditions was just a dumb idea. He had really no way of maintaining the campaign, his supply route was terrible, and he was horribly outnumbered. It set a precedent that would eventually destroy Shu.>>33829250>A. Ask what they told her

>>33829570>>33829583>>33829614>>33829663You remain silent, and the Queen gives you a disappointed look, letting out a sigh."I had hoped to let you simply tell me about this on your own, but it seems waiting around isn't going to yield any results," she tells you regretfully.

"And why is that?""I was trying to keep that relatively secret until I had a firmer grasp on my abilities," you explain. "You may or may not know the last Avatar met an early end. I don't intend to follow in his footsteps."She sighs. "I had assumed that was the reason there hasn't been an Avatar in so long. I heard the rumors of the young man in the Southern Kingdom who was said to use other elements, but was then killed. Most others assumed that either there was no new Avatar after Gonyo, or that the new Avatar had simply decided not to reveal himself.

"Avatar Wan stopped the dark spirit Vaatu from bringing ten thousand years of darkness to our world, and separated the humans from the spirits. Avatar Gonyo spent his life ending a war between the three kingdoms that could have been the end of us all."She rises from the table and turns around, taking a few steps towards her throne before turning back to you. "The Avatar has always been more than an individual who can simply bend all four elements. The Avatar is meant to be a bringer of peace. Wan brought us an era free of Vaatu, one where humans and spirits were no longer in constant conflict, one that was supposed to be full of peace. When the peace failed, Gonyo saw to it that it was restored. Evidently, the next Avatar died too young to do his job, and so the peace has begun to fall apart once again. Since the War of the Three Kingdoms ended, my own kingdom has been ravaged by bandits and civil war. The Civil war ended many years ago, and the bandit threat has been reduced somewhat, but now the three Kingdoms are on the verge of fighting each other once again.">A. You still don't understand>B.

War won't delay so you can train, the world needs you, Shin.""You seem to have a plan in mind, so enlighten me," you instruct."I believe that war is not inevitable," she tells you. "I believe that you can help stop it before it starts. During the War of the Three Kingdoms, many people saw it as hopeless trying to bring about peace. After all, Avatar Wan died in its opening battle. If he could not stop it, who could? Then Avatar Gonyo came along and brought the war to an end. I believe that if you reveal yourself to the world, the world will look to you for guidance. So many people have resigned themselves to the idea that war will come no matter what, but if the Avatar tells them that peace is possible, they might believe it, and work to make it so.">A.

>>33831427So are we gonna get her to spill the beans to us about how bad a person she is?
>>33831200Why do I get the feeling the queen is the equivalent of Cao cao? can we go serve benevolent not Liu bei?
>>33831461Yeah, at least Liu Bei is a bro.
>>33831501Cao Cao was the bigger bro to his men.
>>33831447They'll come spilling out on their own soon enough.
>>33831549I think we should spill inside her instead.
>>33831461Cao Cao was actually a great leader, a friend and had a great taste in wine, poetry and, not to mention, he wasn't some sort of evil dictator.He was fair and rightous for the time, he was not corrupt, and he supported cunfusction values.

"However, my elite guards consist of some of the greatest benders in the world. All four kinds of bender are present, and I imagine they can teach you quite a lot."She smiles a bit mischievously, as if she has a secret she can't wait to surprise you with. "And as for what being the Avatar means, I think I know someone who can help you figure that out. Of course, I can't bring one of the old Avatar's in to speak with you, but I do have the next best thing.">A. You aren't interested>B. Ask what she means>C. What, like one of their descendants?>D.

>>33831647>>33831715>>33831720>>33831760"What do you mean?" you ask."Avatar Gonyo had a son," she explains. "He has lived here since I was a little girl.

>>33831715don't get me wrong I respect that history & the novel are much more Realistic[?] I guess when it comes to how Shu was forced to act due to how poor it was, It's just I want to enjoy a romanticised version of it from time to time.also completely respect that hate for Zhuge liang he's a bit all over the place in terms of depiction so its hard to get a good idea of how he was in life like nearly all other characters in historical records.
>>33831896>>A. YesMight as well
>>33831896well duh, of course. >we husbando in here
>>33831896>B. No, you aren't interested>D. Dialogue writein"With respects, no. Gonyo himself is already being plenty judgmental of me, I don't want to see what his son is like. I swear, you get your throat slit just once and suddenly you're unworthy to be the Avatar. I survived, didn't I? Stupid ghosts, visiting me in my dreams to nag."
>>33831896>B. No, you aren't interestedOh, no. No no no. You don't get involved with your past lives' family. That would just get way too awkward. We're not Gonyo's legacy or any crap like that. We're Shin, and interacting with people who remember the last Avatar is just going to be weird.
>>33832134i actually possess great respect for what this young homie said. change my vote to this, we will hear Gonyo's guidance, but we will forge our own way in this life.
>>33832134so all of korra is just weird? she LIVES with the avatars son
>>33832303Yes all of Korra is weirdThough for different reasons
>>33832303Yes. Have you seen the series? Living with Tenzin drives Korra crazy.
>>33832134yeah this because honestly we are avatar Shin not avatar Gonyo 2.0>>33831896>B. No, you aren't interested
>>33832321nope! the shitty romance sub plots made it unwatchable.
>>33831923>>33831927>>33831961>>33831969"Yes, I would," you tell her."Very well, I imagine he's down by the training area," she tells you. "I'll take you to him."She leads you out of the throne room and down the hall, down the stairs to the second floor, and down the stairs to the first floor. As the two of you make your way outside, she speaks again."His name is Lathic," she says. "He is a powerful Airbender, and has been one of my advisors ever since I became Queen. When he's not offering advice to me, he can usually be found meditating near the training area."She leads you past the training area, where her elite guards practice their bending. Some simply working on their technique while others battle in the ring. You see a large stone nearby, atop which sits an elderly looking man with a bald, tattooed head and a clean-shaven face. He wears rather plain looking clothing, and sits with his eyes closed, legs crossed, and hands on his knees."Master Lathic, I do not wish to interrupt your meditation," the Queen begins."Yet you do, just the same," Lathic replies without opening his eyes."Well, you're always meditating, I need to interrupt any time I wish to speak with you," the Queen says, defending her actions.Lathic chuckles. "That is true." He opens his eyes and gives the Queen a kind smile. "So, what can I do for you, your majesty?"The Queen chuckles. "I've told you, old friend, for you I am simply Alara. You've known me since before I could even form a coherent word, after all."He gets to his feet and steps down from the rock. "Well then what can I do for you, Alara?""There is somebody I would like for you to meet," she answers, gesturing to you. "Master Lathic, meet Avatar Shin."Lathic turns to you, surprise registering on his face. He loses that look quickly, however, and bows in respect."It is an honor to meet you, Avatar Shin," he tells you in a humble tone.>A. Tell him the honor is yours>B. Dialogue writein

"I was hoping you could help him learn.""Being the Avatar is something I have never experienced, and even my father expressed doubts about whether he fully understood it as well. I am not sure that I can truly help," he tells her. "But, I am willing to try."She smiles brightly at him. "Thank you, Master Lathic.""If I am going to simply call you Alara, you must simply call me, Lathic," he says. "There is no need for titles between friends."She nods and bows respectfully. "As you wish, Lathic."She turns to you. "Lathic is a wise and kind man, as well as an incredible Airbender. He has much to teach you, if you are willing to learn.">A. You are>B. You are not>C.

>>33833053Good enough for me.
>>33833130Can we do this but swap the end for something more diplomatic? Like "He doesn't seem like a good adviser"
>>33833238No, let's be honest. Avatar Number Three sucks.
>>33833230>>33833120>>33833092>>33833053"I honestly don't know," you answer. "I've known her only a day, and all I have to go on are the accounts of others. I've heard enough to know trusting her could put myself and others in danger, yet I feel she truly wishes to do good.""Cautious, yet optimistic," Lathic comments. "A respectable way of looking at things. Speaking as someone who has known her for many many years, I can assure you that she wishes to do good. Of course, right and wrong vary based on who you ask, so that answer might not reassure you."He chuckles a bit. "Of course, you are right to be concerned about what trusting her could mean. She is a royal, and things tend to be...complicated where they are concerned. I mean, just look what happened to her mother.">A. Ask what happened to her mother>B.

>>33833520>>33833513>>33833499>>33833439>>33833370>>33833366"What happened to her mother?" you ask."At the end of the civil war, after the rebel army had been defeated, a small group of its remaining members infiltrated the palace in the dead of night," he tells you. "They murdered the Queen in her sleep. Alara and her brother, Ren, awoke and confronted the assassins, killing them all before any of the surviving guards could get there.""So, why did you choose to be the Queen's Advisor?" you ask. "Alara's, I mean.""I was her mother's advisor, and when she died, Alara needed help," he tells you. "She was about your age when she became Queen. She needed guidance, especially after things between her and her brother fell apart.""You keep talking about what happened to her mother, but I'm more concerned with what happened to her niece," you say.A look of profound sadness comes across his face at that, and it is several seconds before he can regain his composure."If you wish to hear Aalara's side of the story, you should ask her," he tells you. >A. You will (Go to the throne room)>B. Perhaps later>C. So, he admits that it did happen>D. Dialogue writein>E. Say nothing

>>33833672>>C. So, he admits that it did happen>>D. Dialogue writein>>33833751
So what's the over/under on Ren being the bad guy here? I'm expecting that it'll be something like that he brainwashed Galda into trying to kill his sister so he could inherit the throne? Or at least, I'm expecting that to be what we're told from the Queen's side of the story.
>>33833839>>33833834>>33833751>>33833730>>33833722>>33833709"So, you admit that it happened," you point out.He sighs. "If you are referring to what happened to Galda when she was a little girl, then yes, it happened. But, as I said, if you want the Queen's side of the story, I sugges-""I didn't say I wanted her side of the story," you interrupt. "I want yours. What happened?"He turns around and climbs back onto the stone, taking a seat. "This is something of a long story, as there is much you must know for much of what happened to make sense. Do you have the time and patience to listen?">A. Yes>B. No>C. You don't want backstory, just exactly what happened when Galda came to the palace>D. Dialogue writein

>>33833990>>33833968>>33833961>>33833959>>33833948>>33833940"Yes, I do," you tell him, pulling a chunk of Earth up behind you and sitting on it in the same position he meditated in earlier.He smiles at the gesture, and reassumes that position. "Alara and Ren were the children of a Firebender, their mother, and a nonbender, their father. Only Alara was born a bender, but their parents never treated them unequally. Ren learned to fight at a young age, and became incredibly skilled at it as time went on. The two of them were very close as children, though I suspect Ren always felt some resentment towards his sister for having bending when he did not. Two years after the War of the Three Kingdoms ended, the Great Civil War began. If I am not mistaken, your parents fought for the Queen in that war. Alara and Ren were confined to the palace during that war, which lasted fourteen years. Their father chose to fight, and was slain shortly after the war began. The two were left with only each other, and their mother. When she died, Alara became Queen. Alara and Ren worked together at first, setting to rebuilding what was destroyed during the war. However, Alara soon became concerned with another issue. Bending had become less and less common as the years went on, and many of the benders that lived in the Kingdoms were killed in the War of the Three Kingdoms. Even more of the benders in this Kingdom were killed during the Great Civil War. Alara feared that bending would soon die out, which she thought would be a horrible tragedy. So, she began enacting laws that she believed would help the remaining benders survive, and the number of benders in the Kingdom to grow. "He closes his eyes and takes a deep breath before continuing to talk. "Ren, however, saw these new laws as oppressive to nonbenders. He and Alara debated this rather often, each argument worse than the last. It eventually reached the point where the two fought physically, at which point-
>>33834297>So, she began enacting laws that she believed would help the remaining benders survive, and the number of benders in the Kingdom to grow. "The key here is what kind of laws these were. I think Ren is probably likely to be right here without knowing anything else.
>>33834297>>33833990>>33833968>>33833961>>33833959>>33833948>>33833940-Ren told Alara that she needed to be removed from the throne, and that he would do whatever was necessary to see that happen. The Queen, understandably, no longer felt safe with Ren in the palace, and so sent him out to live in the city."He opens one eye to make sure that you are still paying attention. When he sees that you are, he closes it and continues. "Alara grew paranoid in regards to her brother after that. Having her own brother, with whom she had been extremely close for so long become her enemy was rather difficult for her to come to terms with. Rumors reaching the palace of Ren gathering followers for something didn't help matters, either. Still, it was nearly a decade before she had any sort of contact with Ren or the family he had started in the city."He sighs, reaching the part he clearly doesn't want to talk about. "When Galda came to the palace, she somehow made it past all of the guards and found her way to the throne room. The Queen didn't know who she was until she identified herself as Ren's daughter. The Queen became visibly nervous when she heard that, but I do not think things would have happened the way they did had the guards in the throne room not discovered that Galda was armed. Alara believed that Ren had sent his own daughter to kill her. So, she had her tortured to find out why Ren had done it and what else he was planning, but over the course of it discovered that Galda truly had no idea what she was talking about. Alara was absolutely horrified by what she had done, and sent Galda back to Ren, desperately wishing she could take back the mistake she had made. But, the damage was done. She and Ren had no further contact until she sent him and his family to help yours in the expedition.">A. Tell him that Ren was right about the Queen>B. Ask what the Queen would have told you differently>C. Say nothing>D. Dialogue writein
>>33834555>B. Ask what the Queen would have told you differently>D. Well thats a rather horrible thing to do to a child, if an understandable mistake. My experience with Galda certainly colored my perceptions of the Queen, even though she did slit my throat.>>33834505I'm in agreement. I want to know what sort of laws were made. if they were rather reasonable if annoying then Ren was just being a douche, and we need to know that.
>>33834619I would agree to all of it except the understandable part

>>33834555>B. Ask what the Queen would have told you differently

>>33834555>B>D"I can understand her mistake but, such a thing cannot be easily undone or forgotten... for either of them. The Queen says she wants peace, you say she feels shame and regret for what she has done. I might not be a full Avatar, but helping them is a start"

>>33834619>>33834627>>33834656>>33834658>>33834688"What would the Queen have told me differently?" you ask."Honestly, I cannot say for certain," he answers truthfully. "The only way to know is to ask.""I understand her mistake, but that's a horrible thing to do to a child," you tell him. "Such a thing cannot be easily undone or forgotten by either of them. My experience with Galda certainly colored my perceptions of the Queen, even though she did slit my throat."He opens one eye again. "She did what?""The Queen says she wants peace," you continue, ignoring the question. "You say she feels shame and regret for what she did.

"Being here is little better than a gilded cage, and makes her policies little more than words on paper."He nods. "I understand. Try speaking with the Queen, see if you can convince her to let you roam the city. If not, come tell me and I will try speaking on your behalf. Or, come speak to me if you ever need advice or simply want to talk.
