>Fire>Air>Water>EarthPreviously, on Avatar Quest...After a discussion that left Bulo still confused, you decided to go back to the lake and practice your bending. You found Galda waiting for you, and, after assuring her that you were alright, you suggested sparring. She agreed, and was somewhat surprised when you decided to fight without bending. You fought surprisingly well, able to get some good hits in on Galda. However, the two of you decided to call it a draw before things got out of hand. You briefly spoke with Bulo again on your way home, and had a conversation with your mother over breakfast the following morning. She informed you that she had sent word to the Queen about what had occurred, and confessed a lack of knowledge of what would happen when the Queen responded. After breakfast, you headed to the lake.
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
>>35439820>There are no write-ins unless explicitly statedDidn't you change that?
>>35439839Not exactly. I said that you can make small changes to available options.
You finish your meal in silence before getting up and leaving the house. Passing Felna and Galda's house, you make your way out of the settlement and to the lake. You figure that this is a good time to practice your Waterbending, but what should you try?>This is the first case of a new system; bending training>In situations like this, you may writein whatever it is that you wish to practice or attempt. Once an option has won, I will assign a roll for success. If any of the first three rolls succeed, then you are successful in your attempt. There are no crits. >If there is no winner after ten minutes, the standard deadlock rules will apply.Start now

Perhaps you should start with something smaller?Then again, you recall that your waterbending wasn't at its best yesterday. You can't helped but wonder what that's about, and if you should even bother with Waterbending at the moment. Perhaps one of your past lives could give advice?>A. Waterbend (writein)>B.

>>35441767>>35441728>>35441726You give it another try, and it goes about as well as it did before; that is to say, it was a complete failure."You know, I don't think trying the same thing over and over and expecting different results is very smart," Felna says as she walks up to your side. "I think you should try something else."She smiles. "Would you like to do some Firebending training?">A. Yes>B. No, you're done training>C. Tell her you want to be alone>D. Dialogue writein

>>35441943Oh Gif Anon, you're so forward...
>we could have been doing Avatar things in the Southern Kingdom right now>Instead we are just fucking off alone next to the lake constantly failing trying to train.
>>35442160Well, blame that on "Hurr, DC doesn't go down and because you failed by 2 points YOU FAILED TERRIBLY"
>>35441888>>35441991>>35441912"You're probably right, but I feel something calling me to do this," you explain.She raises an eyebrow. "Some sort of Avatar wisdom is compelling you to....what are you trying, anyway?"You explain that you want to part the lake."That could be useful," she admits. "I don't think the Shark Turtle would appreciate it, though. Besides, this seems like a really difficult trick. Maybe you should work your way up to it.">A. She's right>B. You're not giving up>C. You'd like to practice Firebending>D. Dialogue writein
>>35442194>D"You're right, but I'm so close, it almost feels like I could have done it the last three times I tried."
>>35442194>A. She's right>>35442206Did somebody say namefags?
>>35442194>>35442208Fine. Eventually it'll happen might as well do it and move on.
>>35442261>>35442236>>35442208"You're right, but I'm so close," you assure her. "It almost feels like I could have done it the last three times I tried."She rolls her eyes. "Shin, do I really need to explain to you what's wrong with that thought process?"Inevitably, you refuse to listen to her and continue attempting the trick, never really getting anywhere with it.In just over a week, you get your response from the Queen; one that was hardly expected.A shadow falls over the lake as you try your trick for the umpteenth time that day, drawing your gaze skyward. You see a large, hairy, six-legged beast with a large flat tail descending from the sky, coming to land a few feet from you.Queen Alara, her Waterbending bodyguards, and Lathic dismount from the horned creature, which, you note with some amusement, has an arrow on its head not unlike Lathic's.Alara smiles kindly. "It is wonderful to see you again, Avatar Shin.">A. Likewise >B. Ask why she's here>C. Ask what that creature is>D. Dialogue writein
>>35442471>A. Likewise>D. It is always a pleasure to see the beautiful visage of my Queen
>>35442471Wow, that railroading.
guess what those 6 posts of training achievednothing
>>35442601I know right?It's almost as if the training didn't do anything, like lower the DCs over time despite being always under 10 points from achieving it.
>half the thread spent training only results in nothing happening, a week passing, and then getting shoved back onto the plot railroad.
>>35442689>>35442575>>35442499"Likewise," you reply. "It's always a pleasure to see the beautiful visage of my Queen."She grins, and you think you see her cheeks turn a little pink. "Flatterer."Lathic approaches and bows respectfully. "It is a pleasure to see you again.">A. Likewise>B. Ask why he came>C. Ask what that creature is>D. Dialogue writein
>>35442745>A. Likewise>C. Ask what that creature isCan we reciprocate the bow too?
>>35442745>DRepeat his gesture"I always thought myself both a bore and a buffoon, I am glad others do not think the same way.
>>35442795>>35442768You bow in return, and tell him that it's nice to see him as well."You know, I always thought myself both a bore and a buffoon," you comment. "I'm glad others don't feel the same.""I feel the same," Kana comments in a flat tone.Ignoring her, you ask Lathic what the creature is."A sky bison," he tells you. "His name is Laka, and I would like you to have him.">A. Why?>B. You don't want him>C. Say nothing>D. Dialogue writein
>>35443127Shut up and take the fucking bison
>>35443058>A. Why?Not saying no, simply curious.
>>35443210>>35443127"Why?" you ask."Because I believe that, as the Avatar, it is important for you to see the world," he answers. "It's a great opportunity for learning, and you could help many people.""It might also be good for relations between the three kingdoms if you're helping in more than just mine," Alara adds. "I can't thank you enough for all you have done, but it's made some people think that you support this kingdom alone.">A. You do>B. But you don't>C. Where should you go?>D. Dialogue writein
>>35443434>C. Where should you go?
>>35443434>>35443487>C. SEE YOU LATER SHITLORDSFTFY
>>35443434>>C. Where should you go?
>>35443564>>35443506>>35443487"Where should I go?" you ask."There are plenty of cities an villages scattered across the kingdoms for you to visit," Lathic tells you. "Explore; learn about the world. Meet new people, help where you can. I think it might be exactly what you need.""Your majesty," your mother greets the Queen, bowing. "It is an honor.""None of that, please," Alara responds. "I'm sorry that my visit isn't under happier circumstances, but I wanted to do this in person. Effective immediately, you are governor of this settlement, and any others that your expedition creates."Your mother bows again. "I will not fail you, your majesty."The Queen smiles. "I know you won't. Now, I would like to speak privately with you. Shin, I imagine that you need to have some discussions with your friends and brothers.">A. She's right>B. Why?>C. What does she need to talk to your mom about?>D. Dialogue writein
>>35443817>A. She's right>C. What does she need to talk to your mom about?
>>35443817>A. She's right
>>35443876>>35443923"You're right," you admit. "But what do you need to talk to my mom about?"She raises a brow. "If I could just say that, I wouldn't need to talk to her in private.">That's it for tonight, the thread will be archived shortly>Follow me @starwarsfands for updatesAny questions?
