>Fire>Air>Water>EarthPreviously, on Avatar Quest...... You spoke with your dad and told him you knew what he did. He gave a quick apology, and you accepted his apology while also kneeing him in the crotch. You asked where your mother and Sonyo were, and left once he told you. Both were thrilled to see you, but when you told your mother all that occurred in the city, she became furious that your father sold you out to the Queen. She demanded that you and Sonyo leave the building while she "discussed" things with your father. Of course, you disobeyed her and attempted to stop a fight from breaking out. You managed to do so, but greatly angered your father in the process. You left the settlement and came across Felna, who was practicing her Firebending while Bulo and Galda watched. Soon, the shark turtle arrived, happy to see you. However, soon, your father's soldiers arrived as well, telling you that your father ordered your arrest for treason. You surrendered, the others doing the same, and you were thrown into prison. You argued with your father about what he was doing before turning his guards against him, resulting in him killing them. You and your father fiercely battled before he managed the incredible feat of opening a massive pit beneath the prison, sending you falling into the abyss. You woke up sometime later, and quickly fell back to sleep, being greeted by the sight of the previous three Avatars
>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.

You're just so tired. You need to sleep. So, you close your eyes and let the darkness take you.When the next site you see is your predecessors standing side by side and watching you with sad expressions, you know that you have died.Well, at least you remember your name."You're not dead," your predecessor says. "Getting some sleep was a smart move," Gonyo tells you. "Yeah, not sure why you think you're dead," your predecessor comments. "What kind of idiot told you sleeping with a concussion was a bad thing?""Look, the point I, you came close to getting killed," Avatar Wan tells you. "Try not to monologue so much during fights.""Your father still needs to be stopped," Gonyo reminds you. "Are you ready to wake up and face him?">A. Yes (Wake up)>B. You have some questions first>C.

>>34702580>>34702517>>34702437You're ready to face your father, and so you wake up.You are still in the pit, and notice a few things immediately. First of all, the pit isn't nearly as deep as you thought. You can see the top of it just fine. Second, your head feels much better, and you seem to have far more energy.It would be a simple matter to Earthbend out of the pit, but if your father is still at the top, he could attack you before you get your bearings.As you consider this, some rage-filled yells grab your attention. The voices sound familiar, and you suddenly feel confident that your father already has his hands full.>A. Raise yourself out of the pit>B. Stay where you are>C. Dialogue writein

>>34702763>>34702751>>34702746>>34702711Stomping on the ground and thrusting your fists skyward, you raise yourself out of the pit on a pillar of sand. As you reach the top, you see the source of the commotion.Your father is under attack, moving quickly backwards as his foes pursue him. Felna unleashes a powerful blast of flame from her right fist that your father rolls to avoid, ending up in a crouch and stomping the ground, thrusting his fists downward and dropping Felna into a pit.He quickly thrusts his fists upwards and begins to raise himself on a pillar of sand.As Bulo raises Felna from the pit, Sonyo stomps on the ground and thrusts his fists towards the pillar, breaking it at the base and causing your father to fall. Your mother throws a sandblast at him as he falls, throwing him back several feet and causing him to crash on the ground.He gets to his feet as Galda and Lee move swiftly towards him. He hurls some sand blasts their way, but the siblings easily dodge his attacks. Galda reaches him first, and lets out a hateful yell as the slashes at his throat. Your father shifts, causing Galda to miss her target.Unfortunately for him, she still cuts deeply into his left cheek and across the side of his face.As your father screams in pain, Lee delivers a flurry of swift strikes that leave your father sprawling on his back. He slams his elbow into the ground next to him, creating an angular wall of sand over himself, guarding him from any attacks from the front of below.Galda and Lee begin to move around, when Felna rushes in their direction."Get out of my way!" she commands her siblings, who quickly do so.Felna lets out a hateful yell to match her sister's as she thrusts her fists forward, unleashing the largest, most powerful torrent of flame you have ever seen her bend. Your father's little wall is wiped out in an instant, and had your father still been there, his death would have been certain.However, when Felna halts her attack, yo-

The others quickly turn to face you as well, all of them quickly running to you. Felna throws her arms around you and hugs you tightly, crying tears of joy."I thought you were dead," she informs you before stepping back and wiping the tears away. "I'm so glad you aren't."Galda surprises you by hugging you tightly the second she reaches you, smiling as she pulls back.

"This time, I'm going to make sure this NEVER happens again. Leave this to me.""Mom, it's probably a trap," Bulo tells her as she approaches the pit. "Of course it is," she agrees. "But, it is a trap set for Lee and Galda, the two who were closest to him when he made the pit. He's cornered down there, and won't stand a chance against me.">A.

>>34704231We're in charge of the settlement now that the previous governor has gone insane. We do need to deal with it. Even ignoring the fact that the Queens army is pretty far away, and he will have escaped long before they arrive, and then the Queen will be like wtf why did you just leave one person alone for days while my army travelled over there, you're not in charge anymore. And even that is assuming he doesn't come back to kill us in our sleep.tl;dr: ur dumb

"An interesting suggestion from you, Shin.""That carries risks of its own," your mother cautions. "We might not be able to tell if we hit him.""Then why not just open pits everywhere until we find him?" Sonyo asks."That gives him too much chance to fight back," your mother tells him."We've already proven that we can take him easily if we can force him into head-on confrontation," Galda reminds her.>A.

You mentally scared Shin so bad with this father betrayal shit that you turned him into a complete pessimist, I hope you're happy Somnius.
>>34705099>>34704959>>34704917"I'm tired of being patient with madmen," you tell the others, not really giving much thought to how insistent you are in murdering your own father."Good call," Bulo tells you. "Let's end this now."You begin the attack, stomping forward and thrusting your hands upward, raising two massive pillars of sand near the pit before slamming them back down to the ground. Your mother and brothers begin imitating you, and soon you have done this to a wide perimeter around the pit."If he didn't escape, he's dead by now," Galda tells you, sounding a bit sad.

>>34705924You deserve to have your vote counted as the opposite of what you meant if your reading comprehension is this shit."Go with it" is voting for monologuing like a bitch.

Broken and lifeless, he is already lying in a hole. Perhaps you should just bury him again and make it his grave."Well, we got him," Bulo says, sounding a bit relieved, but also sad. "Good; the last thing we needed was him coming back once our guard was down," your mother says, perhaps a bit callously. "Should we just rebury him?" Bulo asks."I say feed him to your pet turtle," your mother answers.Lee looks at you.

Well since everything seems to be going back to the status quo were no situation (even his father's death and betrayal) has any bearing on Shin's personality I can see we didn't learn anything over our short death and hiatus.

Shitty character will not be MC.">>34707732You really can't do surppressed emotions very well, can you?>>34707750Example A) of bad monologuing. Example B) Was revealing we were the Avatar to the crowd.
>>34707750Monologuing is fine, what happened with the advisor was the result of poor planning and not enough information
>>34707718>character isn't developing the way I want him to>Better bitch and moan about no character development
>>34707773It was obnoxious, which is what a monologue is. Unless you're in the middle of a debate or an oration, you should always have small statements that leave others a chance to respond."
>>34707762>You really can't do surppressed emotions very well, can you?There's no implications that it's suppressed at all.
>>34707750That was more one guy making baseless assumptions, and everyone else bandwagoning because he looked like he knew what he was talking about. If people had slowed down and thought, "Hey, do we really know that all the stuff this guy is saying here is true?" rather than screaming THIS, that wouldn't have happened.
>>34707799>what is sad and angry and hurt and lonelyWe just killed our dad after he tried to kill us. That we aren't scorching the landscape in white fire is proof enough of suppressed emotions.
>>34707827I didn't mean us, I meant everyone else.
>>34707820It's what I see happening for every one of these monologues. Seriously...I put up a few large posts during the debates that go well, and everyone assumed a monologue is perfect.I've been doing one line posts this entire thread, and they were taken at the start, but now we can't seem to shut the fuck up for a few minutes.Even now, we have the option, right there, to shut up and brood over our father's grave after we kill him...and what happens? Monologue. Keep talking. Fucking shit character, man.
>>34707875I think the monologues are retarded too. I just got in this argument because >>34707526left the impression that he believed we would die or something if we monologued again, and I try to never miss an opportunity to call someone a retard.
>>34707933>mfw I got quoted twice in that post.>mfw I apparently gave the wrong impression...awkward
...I-I just want to sing about falling leaves
>>34708016Same, same...Alright, all votes for sad song?
>>34707985Hell yeah you did! If monologuing just sounds bad than you are you calling someone a stupid shit? Just say that what they wrote sounds fucking stupid, god damn it!
>>34708087Annoyance. I'm actually going through wanting my dad dead for reasons. He hasn't come at me, but it's been close.Ergo, I'm trying to use this to vent.
>>34707462>>34707526>>34707633>>34707715>>34707762You stand over the grave of your father, and find a familiar song coming to your head. You remember singing it with Galda and Felna after they lost their own father. It only seems appropriate that you sing it about yours."Leaves from the vine...." you begin."Falling so slow..." Bulo adds."Like fragile, tiny shells...." Sonyo chimes in."Drifting in the foam...." Lee sings."Little soldier boy...." Felna adds her voice"Come marching home..." Galda sings solemnly as she approaches behind you. "Brave soldier boy," you sing as one, "comes marching home...."A single tear falls down your cheek, leaving your face and soaking into the sand beneath which your father sleeps forever more.Galda puts a hand on your shoulder, her expression one of sympathy and understanding of your pain.>A. Stand there>B. Go back to the settlement>C. Go to the lake>D. Dialogue writein
>>34708575>C. Go to the lakeTake our mind off of it with bending. Let's try and keep quiet while we do it.
>>34707784>Father betrays Shin and Shin is forced to kill him>Shin acts just as he always has with no anger or hurt, without even a single moment of introspectionthis is wrong in so many ways.
>>34708575>C. Go to the lake, work out grief by firebending into it
>>34708637We can dive into being the Avatar. Personally, I want to aim for, "I must be strong enough to be the Avatar."
>>34708575>C. Go to the lake
>>34708637I don't like it either, but that's what the majority of people are voting for.
>>34708575If losing our father they way Shin has doesn't affect him any longer than that single post i'm going to be extremely disappointed, losing a Father the way Shin has should truly be a life changing event.
>>34708652>Firebending>not earthbendimgPLEEEEEEEEEEEEEBBBBBBB PLEEEEEBBBB
>>34708734>Not waterbendingWhen are we doing that?
>>34708768I'd like to you know git gud in the element we started with first. Instead of flip flopping like a flaccid object over the others we're meh tier at earth.
>>34708734Didn't you ever see X-Men 3? You gotta blow up the lake 'til it's boiling when you're sad.
>>34708575>>C. Go to the lake
>>34708697It's just the people who want to sweep everything under the rug and continue what they want to do, they don't actually care about Shin's feelings or the turmoil he goes through, they just want to get gud at bending and care little for actual character development.
>>34708575>>C. Go to the lakewe can work out our feelings and bend to help us think
>>34708885You sound pretty heavily invested for a stupid quest thread, go read a book faggot.
>>34708885Ok. Possible solutions? Maybe while we're emotionally disturbed we face the same problem Zuko did when he switched sides and his bending got shitty? How about it Som?
>>34708885Nigga I been wanting to swim through the fuckimg earth like a goddam earth shark on cocaine for 29 threads. I still voted to stand over the grave of the father we just brutally crushed to death
>>34708636>>34708652>>34708657Leaving the others, and the grave of your father behind, you slowly walk over to the lake. Standing on the shore and looking out at the water, you try to clear your head, but find it exceedingly difficult.Pleasant memories of your father dance through your mind, stretching as far back as you can remember. You remember he and your mother teaching you to read, to Earthbend, playing with you in the city, taking you for walks through the forest and telling you all about the animals. You remember them telling you stories about your adventures, and your father always telling you how proud you made him, and how he knew you were going to do great things.Thinking of all the good times makes it hurt so much worse when you consider how things ended between the two of you.You need to find a way to come to terms with your emotions, or at the very least identify them. You stand where you are, trying to figure out, until you finally figure out how you're feeling.>A. You feel drained; you've been hurt and betrayed by so many people you cared about>B. You feel resolve to become a better person than you are, to make the father you knew proud and stick it to the man he became>C. You feel simple bitterness. How could your own father do that to you?>D. You feel nothing but anger>E. You're hurting, but at the end of the day this changes nothing; you still love your father and won't let his actions change you
>>34709069>B. You feel resolve to become a better person than you are, to make the father you knew proud and stick it to the man he became>E. You're hurting, but at the end of the day this changes nothing; you still love your father and won't let his actions change you
>>34709069>B. You feel resolve to become a better person than you are, to make the father you knew proud and stick it to the man he became
>>34709032>What's a shark?
>>34709069You feel, hurt, bitter, and angry at your Father and the choices he made, but at the end of the day who he chose to be doesn't change who you are. You feel resolve to become a better person than you are, to make the father you knew proud and stick it to the man he became
>>34709069>C. You feel simple bitterness. How could your own father do that to you?>A. You feel drained; you've been hurt and betrayed by so many people you cared about
>>34709069>A. You feel drained; you've been hurt and betrayed by so many people you cared about>C. You feel simple bitterness. How could your own father do that to you?
you can tell the people who vote B are the people who just want to git gud at bending and care for little for else.
>>34709286>>34709263>>34709219>>34709117You understand what you're feeling; bitterness. The betrayal stings. How could your own father do that to you? The more you think about it, the more you realize it wasn't just him. You've been hurt and betrayed a lot lately. Ren, a man you considered a friend, betrayed you, tried to use you as a pawn, and ultimately tried to kill you. The Queen, despite all you did for her, kicked you out of her palace. Felna threw you under the bus to avoid being caught in a lie.This constant betrayal and hurt just leaves you feeling drained.>A. Try Earthbending to keep your mind off of it>B. Try Firebending to keep your mind off of it>C. Try Waterbending to keep your mind off of it>D. Dialogue writein>E. Go back to the settlement>F. Try to call the Shark Turtle>G. Wander the woods
>>34709069Shit I don't know man I'm just a fuckimg dog
>>34709377>>C. Try Waterbending to keep your mind off of it>>F. Try to call the Shark Turtletime to ride the Turtle
>>34709317>If they're not doing it my way, it's not character development
>>34709377>D. Dialogue writeinSleep we had a long ass fuckimg day
>>34709317yeah they are a bunch of metagaming fucks who always pick the option that steps on the least toes and causes the less amount of drama regardless of the situation.
>>34709377>C. Try Waterbending to keep your mind off of it
>>34709377>>C. Try Waterbending to keep your mind off of itIf we git gud at waterbending, we can at least start airbending
>>34709400taking sides today Somnius, you think that is truly wise?
>>34709446I've never exactly been a paragon of wisdom, have I?
>>34709446Som always takes sides. Also, I want to protect that smile.
>>34709377>C. Try Waterbending to keep your mind off of it >F. Try to call the Shark Turtle
>>34709426But airbending's tricky
>>34709461yeah you can tell from the last few threads.
>>34709578Because it's our opposite element. If we can learn to be more fluid through waterbending, it'll start getting easier
>>34709606But you gotta learn things in this order:>Earth>Fire>Air>Water>Earth
>>34709396>>34709417>>34709426>>34709553Wanting to take your mind off of things, you decide to practice your waterbending.Holding your hands out towards the lake, you slowly raise them, water following your motions and lifting into the air before abruptly falling back into the lake.Irritated, you give it another try, with similar results. You try again, and the same happens. That just figures; nothing can ever go right, can it? >A. Try Earthbending to keep your mind off of it>B. Try Firebending to keep your mind off of it>C. Try Waterbending again, resolve not to stop until you can waterbend>D. Dialogue writein>E. Go back to the settlement>F. Try to call the Shark Turtle>G. Wander the woods
>>34709698>G. Wander the woods
>>34709698>>C. Try Waterbending again, resolve not to stop until you can waterbend>>F. Try to call the Shark Turtle
>>34709698>F. Try to call the Shark Turtle
>>34709698I vote that we meditate. Get in touch with ourselves, the spirits, and our past lives. Perhaps there's some wisdom and comfort from such introspection.The previous avatars helped us get out of this, maybe they can help us figure out how to deal with it.
>>34709698>>G. Wander the woods
>>34709698>A. Try Earthbending to keep your mind off of it >C. Try Waterbending again, resolve not to stop until you can waterbendWe mustn't tackle Waterbending with stubborness, we must learn how to flow, and when we learn how to make the water flow with earthbendng, we can try waterbebding.
>>34709698>C. Try Waterbending again, resolve not to stop until you can waterbend>F. Try to call the Shark TurtleWe're frustrated and tired, call Sharky to relax for a bit, maybe meditate before trying again. Who better to help with Waterbending than our amphibious comrade
>>34709772Sure we can try to meditate why not maybe get some bending tips
>>34709772plus we need to figure out the avatar state eventually. our dad coulda killed us, so it might not be a bad idea to talk to old wan and gonyo
I guess all people care about is bending instead of going on a spiritual journey of introspection through the woods.
>>34709892You know what's in the woods? Cougarwolves and Bearverines.
>>34709892>spiritual journeyor getting surounded by wild animals and dying, that sounds much more likely to happen in a Somnius quest
>>34709947Eh I stopped sperging the fuck out over all the little details a while ago. Doing that drains the fun.
>>34709767>>34709770>>34709795>>34709816You resolve not to stop until you've managed to successfully waterbend. Unfortunately, it seems your resolve just isn't enough.You spend hours upon hours attempting to waterbend, but, rather than slowly getting better and managing to do it, you seem to be getting worse. It eventually reaches the point where you can't even make any water raise into the air. Your frustration and bitterness grows, until finally, there is a change.A section of the lake freezes solid.Beyond the surprise of what you just did, you also feel a bit uneasy. You get the feeling someone is watching you, but your friends and siblings returned to the settlement long ago.>A. Look around>B. See if you can freeze more water>C. Try to break the water into shards>D. Meditate>E. Return to the settlement>F. Call for the Shark Turtle
>>34710085>EI got a bad feeling Scoob
>>34710085>B.We icicleman now
>>34710085>CBut physically, no bending
>>34710085>E. Return to the settlement
>>34710085>>E. Return to the settlement
>>34710085>>C. Try to break the water into shards>>F. Call for the Shark Turtle
>>34710085>>B. See if you can freeze more waterits either a really good someone watching us, or we should get ready to fight
>>34710105>>34710124>>34710190You get the feeling that it would be in your best interest to return to the settlement. Unable to shake the feeling that someone is watching you, you keep ready to fight as you begin walking away from the lake and towards the safety of the settlement.As you walk, you think you see movement out of the corner of your eye. Turning to look that way, you see something leap out of the trees and move into the forest. If you go after it now, you could probably catch it.>A. After it, you want to know what's going on>B. Keep going to the settlement>C. Go back to the lake
>>34710361>>A. After it, you want to know what's going onshit, fine I'll bite
>>34710361>BNah I'd rather we make sure everything alright back home
>>34710361alright, so is itA. Dad somehow faked his deathB. Bandits in the woodsC. Ren's lackys come for revengeD. a Monkey
>>34710361>A. After it, you want to know what's going on
>>34710518>D. a MonkeySo, you've got it all figured out. You just couldn't leave well enough alone.
>>34710518E. Spirit shenanigans
>>34710518Could also be strange spirit shenanigans.This is why we meditate!
>>34710361>>A. After it, you want to know what's going on
>>34710564not the first time I'm afraid
>>34710564I'd like to have a monkeybro
>>34710518>>34710564the fuck is a "Monkey?" you mean a spider monkey right? or a squirrel monkey, or even a crow monkey right?
>>34710672Nah just a monkey
>>34710702like a badger monkey? or a monkey dog?
>>34710637I'd really really like to have a wolfbro
>>34710579>>34710546>>34710430You want to know what's going on, so, you decide the best way to find out is to follow the mysterious figure into the woods.You don't get far before something lands on your back, knocking you forward onto the ground. You feel the weight get off of your back, and look up to see a woman standing over you.She looks perhaps a year or two younger than the Queen. Her brown hair stops about an inch above her shoulders, and her brown eyes focus on you as she gives you a predatory grin."Were you following me?" she asks sweetly. "I'm flattered; always nice to have men chasing me.">A. Ask who she is>B. Ask what she's doing>C. Open a pit beneath her>D. Dialogue writein>E. Launch her on a pillar>F. Firebend at her>G.

"Reminds me of one of my mom's cheesy romance scrolls."The woman laughs, giving you an amused look. "I suppose it does rather sound like that. And I can only imagine what the mysterious woman would do to the young man now in one of those stories, but, that's not why I'm here.""Who are you?" you ask her."My name is Yulni," she tells you, walking slowly around you, a spring in her step as she does so.

>>34711734do you even anime logic anon? This chick is going to obviously be super l33t skilled since shes so mysterious
>>34711760not saying we'll be safe just cause we can bend, if she works for who I'm 90% sure she does then she's more dangerous then she seems. Bending just helps in case we fuck up diplomancing
>>34711821Who do you think she works for?

>>34711835the monkey obviously, right guys?
>>34711981great, so its either revenge seeking cultists or another royal person trying to weasel in on the Avatar>>34711982OH COURSE, HOW COULD I HAVE BEEN SO BLIND!?
>>34712107No, neither of those are quite it.
>>34712137its more people trying to rope Shin into their problems/schemes, so whatever it is I'm loath to have any part of itDamn it Somnius, we're gonna get stabbed in the woods again aren't we?
