>Fire>Air>Water>EarthPreviously, on Avatar Quest....Summoned to the capital by the Queen herself, you were taken to the palace, where you met Queen Alara face to face. She discussed some of your recent experiences with you before asking for a demonstration of your Earthbending prowess. You gave her that demonstration by defeating one of her elite guards, and Earthbender, in the training ring. That evening, you were visited in your dreams by the previous Avatar. The two of you did not get along, and spent most of your time insulting one another. The next day, the Queen revealed to you that she knew your identity as the Avatar. The two of you discussed the implications before she introduced you to Lathic, the son of Avatar Gonyo. The two of you spoke about the Queen and your distrust towards her. Lathic explained the Queen's side of events, and you resolved to patch things up between her and her brother, Ren. You asked the Queen to let you explore the city, and, after giving you the bounty for Ming the Bandit King, she agreed, but requested that you attend a rally she wanted to know about. You agreed, and spent most of the day shopping before attending the rally, where you learned that the Bender-Non-Bender Alliance was plotting to overthrow the Queen. You spoke to their leader, and assured him that you would convince the Queen to change her ways. He wished you well, and you departed the meeting, finding yourself under attack soon after by a group of benders claiming to serve the Queen. You tried to retreat, but each attempt was thwarted. Things looked bad until Felna came to your rescue. The two of you decided to get to the bottom of things and went to the palace, where you got Felna in by claiming she was your girlfriend, much to her irritation. The two of you spoke with the Queen about the rally, and she agreed to change her policies. When she left the room, you and Felna discussed her before Felna decided to go to sleep.
>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
"Let's get you a room, then," you tell her. "I'll deflect if the Queen asks any questions about why we're not sharing a room. I won't even need to lie, I'll just say that your family would probably kill me if I made a move like that. Scratch that, DEFINITELY kill me."Her cheeks color a bit. "Not if I killed you first."She rises to her feet. "I'm going to go have a message sent to them, then ask about a room. Sleep well, Shin.">A. Go to your room and get some sleep>B.

>>33967894>D. Find LathicHe won't kill us himself in the queen's palace. Since we put him under scrutiny, he would become the prime suspect.If he's with us, he's not killing the Queen.
>>33967953>implying the guard isn't the assassin
>>33968035Look what you have done to us, Som. We can't even trust an NPC you haven't even named yet.Seriously though, if there was an assassin in place to remove the queen, it'd have happened already. All it takes is one loyal guard alerting her and she can bend her way out of the situation.
>>33968061>What is a sleeper agent
>>33968087Guys. He hasn't even mentioned a guard yet.I highly doubt one random guard is going to be a sleeper agent. Maybe one of those assigned to her will be, but not the first one we see.
>>33968035>>33968061>>33968087>>33968118Ahhh, now THIS is a Som quest. The first decision is a pit of paranoia and shitstorming to put /pol/ to shame.Smells like victory.
>>33968027>>33967976As Felna goes off to handle her business, you decide that you don't feel like waiting for the Queen to return. Instead, you wish to go find Lathic and speak with him.Rising from your seat, you make your way to the door through which Felna had disappeared moments ago and walks down the hallway to the stairs. Travelling down to the first floor, you walk outside and around to the back of the palace, where many of the guards are still training. You pass them without giving them much attention, figuring you'll find Lathic in his usual spot.And, that is exactly where you find him, sitting atop his rock, legs crossed, hands on his knees, and his eyes closed. Either he's mediating, or sleeping.>A. Ask if he's awake>B. Go back to the throne room>C. Go to your room>D. Dialogue writein>E. Go to the training area>F. Go to the kitchen>G. Go out into the city

>>33968419>>33968429Careful. We tell him too much and he is the traitor...I say >B. because at least then we can keep an eye on him.
>>33968408>>B. Ask him to train you in AirbendingNeed to learn some basics of air bending
You know, the other day I asked Som if Shin actually has a chance with the Queen. He said yes. I think we all know what we must do.
>>33968462But if he is the traitor then he already knows>>33968502It shall happen
>>33968514He may not know that Felna's here, however. Telling him will only lead to assassins around her.If we solo'd the group he sent, he might deem us too great a risk NOT to remove. And if we didn't we had help. Our help would be offed.
>>33968502fuck all three best girls?
>>33968551>>33968502>>33968514NOOOOO you'll upset the somdon't upset the som, it's suicide
>>33968551That works too. Just saying we should get started. We've already started on Galda and Felna after all.
>>33968550I wasnt saying we should tell him about Felna and if he sent the group he clearly knows the have failed as we are still alive

"Things are moving quickly, and I would like to at least learn the basics before the chance to do so is gone.""As you wish, Avatar Shin," he says, getting to his feet.

>>33968689>H, K"No, I said the BASICS, not how to get my ass kicked."
>>33968789We asked him to teach us airbending, not how to dodge shit.

>>33968689>E. Launch yourself back on a pillar of Earth
>>33968718>>33968736>>33968748>>33968762You stand your ground, not attacking, not bothering to dodge just standing solidly.This turns out to be a bad idea, as Lathic thrusts his hand towards you, throwing you backward with a strong gust of wing and causing you to land painfully on your back. Lathic slowly and calmly walks over to you, looking down at you with a mixture of amusement and confusion."Is there any particular reason why you didn't dodge my attack?" he asks.

>>33969099I want to vote for this one.
>>33969084>>33969122>>33969123This, but don't attackIf >>33969099 then also add on that since we could not bend air in battle, that we had lost already.
Do some of you really not get that he's doing the whole "training via combat" thing? He's not trying to attack us.
>>33969157This, blender mix everything
>>33969179I get it, I just like being an idiot towards mister monk here
>>33969157I can dig this.
why are we being an asshole we should just be like "oh this was a dodging exercise, now I know."
>>33969204I can support that. I voted C after all. It was more toward the people who want to full on fight and insult the guy.
Am I the only one that finds it weird that of the 4 airbenders we've met, all 4 have been very violent and aggressive, and not at all like airbenders?The first two tried to kill us and were bandits and tried to kill us. The third was pretending to be one of the Queen's men and tried to kill us. And now this guy just attacked us instead of actually attempting to teach us anything.
>>33969099that's pretty stupid reasoning.
>>33969278Theres a reason they all died later in history
>>33969323They were assholes?
>>33969366More or less
>>33969084>>33969099>>33969113>>33969122>>33969123"I don't respond to danger like a normal person," you tell him as you rise to your feet. "And when I spar with others for training purposes, I limit myself to the bending that I am trying to train. However, as it is, I don't know how to Airbend. I also trust those who fight me to make it clear that they are going to fight. You, however, attacked me without warning under the pretext of training. So, can you teach me how to Airbend yet?"Lathic throws back his head and laughs. "Your actions in response to mine, your stubbornness and aggression in regards to being caught off guard, and your pride attempting to justify it, no wonder you haven't figured out Airbending yet.">A.

>>33969434>B. Ask what he means
>>33969434>D. Uh huh, It also might have something to do with I don't know how to airbend, when are you gonna teach me?Act stupid about it, not aggressive
>>33969434>D. "Fine, fine...you caught me completely off guard when I saw clearly what you were doing..."
>>33969434>D. Dialogue writein"What pride? You asked why I did as I did. I answered. You have not answered my question yet, though. Shall we train?"
>>33969434Then teach me.
>>33969507This. Let's face it, it's what happened.He caught us off guard and we had no clue what to do, and we got knocked back.
>>33969459Don't see much point continuing the argument, he's just going to throw the same stubborn words back at us.So seconding this.
>>33969507>>33969434This. No use in antagonizing him.
>>33969434Then show me. If earth is stubborn, fire passionate, and water flexible then air is something I've never considered.
>>33969434Maybe but if you are air then I am earth. I expected difficulty.
>>33969434>D. Dialogue writein"Man, you're an asshole. No wonder the Queen suspects you of plotting against her. Whoops, did I say that out loud?"
>>33969459>>33969507Both of these.
>>33969459Passive as shit nigga, I like it
>>33969492>>33969541>>33969459In response, you just shrug.Lathic shakes his head. "Shin, each element has particular traits to it. Earth is solid and unmoving, stubborn, but strong. Fire is consuming, potent, dangerous, and powerful. Water is changing, adaptable, in many forms, flowing, and sometimes treacherous."He chuckles. "You certainly have strength and potency, but also stubbornness, and you are rather dangerous. And you seem to suspect treacherousness everywhere. As for air, it is an element of change, like water. It can come in the form of a gentle breeze, or a devastating hurricane. I would call it the opposite of Earth. Where Earth is rooted in one place, stubborn and stuck, air is always moving, changing, free. If you wish to understand Airbending, you can't think approach is like you do Earthbending or Firebending, understand?"He brings his fist back once again.>A. Dodge left>B. Dodge right>C.

>>33970353>>33970076>>33969981>>33969941You dodge this time, leaping to the left as he thrusts his fist forward, his gust of wind going right past you, not affecting you at all."Very good," he compliments. "Now, keep it up."He thrusts his fist towards you again, and you dodge the gust of wind once more, then he thrusts with his other fist, and you are forced to dodge once again, and again, and again. He changes things up a bit, swinging his arms outward in an arc, and creating an arc of wind to match it, causing you to have to duck rather than move left or right. "Very, very good," he tells you. "Now, are you ready to try to Airbend?">A. Try to Airbend (90 or higher)>B. Not yet>C. You don't get the point of this>D. Dialogue writein

>>33970488>B. Not yetYou know, getting into the mindset like he says will probably bring that DC down.
>>33970488>B. Not yetNo. Keep working on getting fluid motion down before we try it.
>>33970488>DI dodge all the time, why's it so special I magically learn airbending when it's with you?Hell, I also use earth to fly through the air, doesn't that mean that the DC should be 80 at least?
>>33970488>B. Not yet>C. You don't get the point of this>D. Dialogue writein"I really don't feel like this is going to help. I dodge plenty, that thing earlier was just me being petty. Do you have any other ideas on how to teach me to think like air?"
Hey, do you think this mindset thing is why the firebending DC kept going up that one time? Or maybe that was just exhaustion setting in.
>>33970734Wouldn't aggressively trying to fire bend make it easier?
So gentlemen, should we be the first to figure out lava bending, ice bending, or lightning? I vote anything besides the last one cause I don't think Shin has the right mindset for that
>>33970734exhaustion affects fire the most. You need a bonfire to kill someone easily, not a bed of coals
>>33970793Ice. Ice is an essential component of the waterbending skill set. The others are advanced moves with situational uses, but ice is always relevant to a waterbender.
>>33970679>>33970673>>33970606>>33970586>>33970564"Not yet," you tell him. "Really, I don't get the point of this. I dodge plenty, that thing earlier was just me being petty. Do you have any other ideas on how to teach me to think like the air?"He chuckles. "Does the air think? I was not aware of that. Honestly, were you to try right now, I sincerely doubt that you would succeed. I do not believe that you are yet ready to learn Airbending. It is the virtual opposite of your personality.

This is definitely good encouragement to not mess around, and for the next several minutes, you dodge a variety of his attacks, tiring yourself out a bit in the process.

>>33971634>>33971609>>33971562>>33971533Having had enough of training for tonight, you figure that you should probably go back to the throne room and speak with the Queen.

"I thought someone was trying to kill you.""Nobody has yet," she answers, rising from her throne and clenching her fists. "But if someone is in my palace killing my people, I am going to introduce them to a whole new world of pain."She quickly strides across the room and pushes past you, running down the hallway. Of course, you decide to follow her, catching up with her as she makes her way down the first flight of stairs.From the second floor, you can see two figures making their way swiftly out of the palace. The Queen begins to move down the stairs after them.>A. Follow her>B. Stop her>C. Stay where you are>D. Dialogue writein>E. Try to open a pit beneath them>F. Firebend at them

>>33972743We'll do this full disney style. Once things calm down we ask what she does for fun. When she says "nothing" we spirit her away in disguise into the city to woo her.pic related once we learn airbending
>>33972766>E. Try to open a pit beneath themI fully expect those guards to be the assassins, with Galda and her father actually protecting the Queen

>>33972795>>33972815>>33972826>>33972840>>33972844>>33972877You figure that the best method of stopping them is to open a pit beneath them. But, given that you're on a wooden staircase, you have to wait until you reach the first floor to do so.When you reach the bottom of the stairs, the two have already made it outside, forcing you to follow them out of the palace before you can do anything. You step outside and attempt to open a pit, but they are simply too far away and moving too fast for you to make one beneath them. Improvising a bit, you create a pit right in front of the two, but they react incredibly quickly and leap right over it. The Queen, meanwhile, is ahead of you, and brings both of her fists back before thrusting them towards the retreating figures. A massive jet of blue fire pours from her fists and rapidly moves towards the two, who split up and move to avoid it before rejoining one another at the gate once it evaporates. After a moment, the pair pass through the gate and out into the city.>A. Follow them>B. Tell the Queen that the two of you need to stop>C.

>>33973103>D. Dialogue writein"We probably shouldn't follow them-it'll be easier for them to ambush us out there. But if you want to follow them, we should probably take Lathic and a few guards."
>>33973103D.this was probably a diversion, they're doing something inside
>>33973103Theory: Galda saw Felna come in with us, had a fit of stupidity, killed guards and scared the shit outta Felna (hence the scorch marks), and now broke her out.Suggestion: Next time we see Galda, break her thumbs. She just killed two people, took two LIVES, because she felt like it. Noone who can murder an innocent man so casually...she should be executed, but taking her ability to hold a weapon should keep Felna from getting too pissed at us.
>>33973395Let's not break people's thumbs because you think they might have killed someone.
>>33973395I'm sorry at this point we can't defend her, it's one thing for her attempting to kill us, its another for to actually murder someone.
>>33973156>>33973181>>33973203>>33973250"We have to stop," you tell the Queen. "There could be more out there."She turns to you, grinding her teeth, a look of pure outrage marring her beautiful face. "Get your most trusted men together, I need to check something," you conclude."Be careful," she warns before turning back towards the gate and taking a deep breath.With a loud roar (or as close to a roar as she can produce) a massive jet of flame (normal colored this time) gushes from her mouth and ascends high into the air, illuminating the sky all around you. It doesn't take long for half a dozen guards to come running."We've had intruders in the palace," Alara tells them. "At least two guards are dead, and, judging by how quickly the intruders got through the gate, two others better be as well. We are going to search the palace, as a group since these two seem perfectly capable of killing even benders of your caliber.">A. Go to your room>B. Find Felna's room>C. Go to the training area>D.

>>33973501>>E. Follow the intruders to the city, and try to find them
inb4 B actually means to go with all the guards to Felna's room. Also now I'm pretty convinced it was Galda trying to save Felna and she thinks we turned her in, but I'm a pessimist.
>>33973515>>33973517>>33973531>>33973533>>33973534After asking the Queen where Felna (whom you still take care to refer to as Kurna) is staying, you rush into the palace and climb to the second floor. Locating the room Felna was given for the night, you open the door and find it empty. There are no signs of a struggle, in fact, other than the covers having been moved, there are no signs that anyone was even using this room.>A. Find the Queen and her guards>B. Go to your room>C.

What exactly are we going to tell them, these votes are vague.
>>33973820>>33973816>>33973814>>33973790You run to find the Queen and her guards, who are currently examining the scene on the first floor. The Queen looks at you as you descend the stairs and approach."Did you check what you needed to?" she asks.>A. Tell her Kurna is missing>B. Tell her Felna is missing>C. Say nothing>D. Dialogue writein
>>33974002>D"Indeed I did.""Can I ask if you've alerted the kingdom as to the change in bender laws yet?"
>>33974002>D. "Yes. This has got to be the BIGGEST misunderstanding ever...you see, Kurna's brother wasn't exactly happy with the no-bender policies before I left. Apparently, he's been going to the rallies...and if he saw his sister come into the palace, he might have assumed she was...well, prisoner. And foolishly decided to 'liberate' her."
>>33974063At that point we might as well come clean
>>33974002>A. Tell her Kurna is missing
>>33974089yeah, lets spill the beans and hope it doesn't screw us
>>33974169>>33974140>>33974089>>33974115You realize none of these votes actually count, right/

>>33974018>>33974140>>33974239"Indeed I did," you tell her. "Can I ask if you've alerted the Kingdom as to the change in bender laws yet?""I sent out orders all over the Kingdom," she tells you. "And, as I said before, I will make an official announcement to the city tomorrow. Tell me, is your girlfriend alright? I'd figure she'd be with your right now.">A. Come clean about everything>B.

>>33974337>A. Come clean about everything''I thought I could trust her....''
>>33974337>A. Come clean about everything>>33974379don't fucking say this. We don't know shit about what's going on
Why are yall assuming that she can't be trusted. just because she wasn't in her room doesn't mean she killed the guards.
>>33974337>>A. Come clean about everything>>D. Dialogue writein"I want to believe this is all a big misunderstanding. I want to trust them, trust her but I feel as though that decision has been made for me already. Come, the only way we'll both have our answers is to find them before they do something they'll regret furthur"
>>33974443You've got a point, can I retract that last sentence?
>>33974443but it does mean that it was likely Galda and she went with her without any word.
>>33974337>A. Come clean about everythingand none of this crap about not trusting her. WE still have no reason to distrust her
>>33974443If she's Innocent her behaviour is highly erratic.
>>33974337>A. Come clean about everythingDo not throw Felna under the bus. We don't know her situation at this time after all
>>33974493While I doubt it is Galda either, she is much more likely.
>>33974443we know Ren and Galda came with her, we know Ren is working against the Queen, we can guess it was Galda who back stabbed the guards, and Felna wouldn't just disappear with an intruder unless it was Ren or Galda. if she isn't too blame she NEEDS to explain this shit cause its not helping her family's case
I think we can all agree, the best part of A is that the Queen will know we're single
Can someone reminds me why we even brought Felna to the castle anyway?
>>33974584Your waifu a shit, Shark Turtle for life
>>33974576>we know Ren is working against the Queenno we SUSPECT him of it
>>33974600She saved us from the attack and we were worried she'd get attacked out on the street.
>>33974576While that may be partially true, we shouldn't throw her under the bus until she has had time to explain.
>>33974619Felna told us he's worked with the group before, even said the leader's name was familiar to her. if he's not then he needs to stop shadowgaming with Gadla and Felna before they all get over their heads
>>33974350>>33974358>>33974363>>33974379>>33974427>>33974438>>33974466>>33974499>>33974526You proceed to explain everything to the Queen; that Kurna was really Felna, her own niece. You tell her about pretty all of your experience with her family in regards to this situation; their feelings towards her, their reactions to what was done to Galda, Galda's attitudes towards Benders, Felna's fear of her, that Ren may have been attending rallies, that Ren and Galda are also in the city.The Queen listens, her expression growing more and more stony the more you say. When you finally finish, she speaks up."This is not good, Shin," she tells you. "I am disturbed that you would keep this from me."Before you can protest, she raises a hand to silence you. "I can understand you not telling me that Ren, Galda, and Felna were in the city; they have just as much right to be here as anyone else. I can understand you not telling me Ren attended rallies; my goal has been to avoid conflict with that group, not eliminate it. I can understand you not telling me Felna was a Firebender; I can see why should would fear me knowing. But to bring my niece into my palace, my home, and not even tell me it was her, that is not simply omission of details; you gave me a fake identity for her, and now she vanishes, and this happens!"She takes a moment to compose herself. "No, this situation is not good at all, Shin."(To be continued)>That is it for tonight, did everyone have fun>Thread will be on suptg shortly, if you liked it, give it an upvote>Follow me on twitter @starwarsfands for updates and schedule changes>Next update will likely be either Friday or Saturday.

>>33974776what happens when we hit 0/10
>>33974709can we just skip right to actually finding them next tread, cause at this rate it'll be days before we find them
>>33974709So...are we going to get out of this situation without someone dying?Can you see it actually happening?
>>33974665Yes but as far as we [shin] knows he is a supporter of the Non-Bender Alliance not a collaborator of the coup, that said our pool of suspects is shrinking rapidly so its going to come to a head sooner or later.>>33974709Thanks for running Som 1. shit getting real next time y/n?2. would it be possible for Shin to want but not have Polygamous relationships with Galda & Felna on account of their feelings, because you know shifting character dynamics and what not?3. how long have you planned this quest to run for?
>>33974798What was with the airbending shit? I really don't get it.Not only did he attack us out of nowhere with little explanation, but suddenly when we don't think we're good enough we have to go and leave?
>>33974709Next thread we should probably start with our suspicions with her after our run in with her supposed city guards.Also, more intrigue, fucking yay.Just kill everyone Shin, it's easier that way.
>>33974709>you gave me a fake identity for her, and now she vanishes, and this happens!">She takes a moment to compose herself. "No, this situation is not good at all, Shin."And Shin TOLD her he wasn't ready for this kinda shit but queeny said tough shit. now look where we are, having the Avatar around sure is fixing all your problems huh your majesty?
>>33974803Game over>>33974805Nope>>33974807Possibly I don't know, but I'm not optimistic >>33974836Things are in motionTo want? YesI have a few plots in mind for if you survive this one>>33974841Airbending is an element that requires you to be fast on your feet and able to move around well.>>33974863>The genocidal AvatarVaatu would be proud>>33974867Yeah, but this is a situation you sort of fucked up yourself. She just asked you to visit a rally and tell her what you heard. You chose to speak up and confront the leader at that rally, making yourself a target. You chose to bring Felna into the palace. This stuff is on your head.>Any more questions?
>>33974798>>Any more questions?not really a question Som, but I'll be honest. This shit is infuriating. Every good choice we try to make turns bad, and every bad choice gets worse. Granted this is still at least 100x better then the last Avatar quest but god damn it I've never wanted to say (IC) "Fuck this, I'm leaving" so badly. Still enjoying myself besides all that crap so looking forward to next time
>>33974951Well, that's partially the player's fault for making some poor choices, but you also have to keep in mind that you have people working against you, trying to make things go badly for you. You have to push through and outdo them.
>>33974901when can we just leave, pick up our Shark Turtle, and have adventures like a real Avatar?
>>33974951I get the feeling that a lot of the 9 options we usually get a land mines and it makes me uncomfortable.
>>33974995If you told the Queen "fuck this, I'm out" and left, you could do so at any time.
>>33975004that's because they usually are
>>33974901>To want? Yes>MFWIf we survive this I look forward to the aforementioned developments & Felna & Galda's reactions if we ever bring it up.>Avatar Shin spends his life flitting between both sisters>wants polygamy but both girls say no>Shin can't decide best human girl>Dies alone
>>33975012sounds great, let's do it
>>33975012well first we have to get our girls and Ren, but then I'm all for this
>>33975039Try it next time>>33975027Oh please, I have much worse ends in mind.>Any last questions?
>>33975055okay, so rough guess. say we don't completely fuck everything up and resolve this whole situation, we talkin' a couple threads or Planet Namek
>>33975055why do you hate fun?
>>33975055>I have much worse ends in mind.NO SOM! NO!
>>33975055>Try it next timegood, better then anything else going on
>>33975054>And RenW-what?>>33975083You mean for this arc to be resolved? That depends on you.>>33975089I don't, my idea of fun is evidently different from yours. >>33975096It's Som time!>>33975111Good luck, and nice trips
>>33975055is it possible for you to run a quest without all the kind of stuff you through in the last 2-3 threads or is it just a fetish? cause I could believe either at this point
>>33975155What things, specifically?
>>33975133>That depends on you.me personally? great, next thread it is then
>>33975012will this immediately result in Bad End? Because it sounds like something you'd have us killed for choosing
>>33975201Would YOU die? Probably not, at least not from the Queen. A LOT of people would die though.>>33975189Funny
>>33975172specifically, the point this changed from "Young Avatar in the woods learning bending and having a pretty nice life Quest" to "Trapped in kingdom politics you want nothing to do with, and btw everyone you trusted is quite possibly fucking you over Quest"
>>33975133 we're going to have to kill them aren't we?
>>33975233Oh, Anon.... Maybe >>33975231You guys made that transition through your choices
>>33975222i try, nice trips
>>33975222>We tell the Queen we want no part in this shit>She wipes our settlement off the face of the earth>Genocide Avatar is a goI can dig it
>>33975253>You guys made that transition through your choicesand the two waterbenders who showed up and told us "You're coming with us" had nothing to do with it, cause I'm pretty sure it did
>>33975253no we didn't. I don't mind the change, but we were basically forced to come to the capital, and everything has gotten worse since we've gotten here. Even when we make smart choices.
>>33975292Those Waterbenders would have never done that, had you been more careful in revealing your bending.>>33975255Thank you, nice dubs>>33975256Good
>>33975253Fuck we Romeo & Juliets now
>>33975313>Those Waterbenders would have never done that, had you been more careful in revealing your bending.you mean if we hadn't trusted our father. Which is someting that, IC, would have made no sense for us to do.
>>33975313or our dad not ratting us outor Shin saying no and them immediately knocking him out and taking him anywayor just slaughtering all the bandits so no one would ever know
>>33975313>had you been more careful in revealing your bending.you're right, everything that happens when Shin isn't there is his fault. he should've just never been born a bender in the first place and saved himself the trouble
>>33975391and then we could have just murdered people with Galda. And then had crazy sex on rooftops and in corpse piles
>>33974901>You chose to speak up and confront the leader at that rally, making yourself a target.But if we hasn't then the crowd might have started a riot against the Queen!>You chose to bring Felna into the palaceTo protect her from the fake 'guards' who attacked us!Lying with her to the Queen about her identity, that's on us though..
>>33975391>>33975446now there's a quest i can get behind
