i dont think Aang would use his energy bending power like that. if he did, that wouldve given the equalist more evidence to prove that benders were an elitist class oppressing the commonfolk.

I agree with Apygoos and Mai :o I'm sure if Aang was going to give others airbending, he would have. It's a bit too far off the logical idea xD

I'm making the thread now, and I will link it here. So if I need to change something we can discuss it here too.

Here is the link to the character thread, which also has links to the roleplay and OOC threads.

I am not 100% sure since most people don't like anime characters, if I should allow them or not. Please put your opinions here or in the OOC thread for me, thanks. ^^

Were you still intending to go with a younger Lin as Chief?

Yes. Since Korra isn't there yet and Aang is gone, Lin is still chief though a little younger than in the current season.

Alright. Just trying to decide how old to make my character if I want her to be a student of Lin's rather than her mother before her.

I'm just having a hard time finding a good male picture for a water bender >.<

What does everyone think of having artsy pictures? Not fully Real life, not completely anime? It'd be nice if everyone's were about the same. (Like no anime and human right next to each other xD)

I would like it if people could plop down an opinion for this. Since Republic city is an anime-like city but many people don't like anime-characters, I was hoping a happy medium might suffice? xD

hey Xen... http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs18/f/2007/176/e/3/Neo_Avatar_Waterbender_by_RacoonFactory.jpg

far too Asian for me. XD I cannot see the character I'm thinking of being Asian at all.

I think I'll just try to work my imagination a bit, and allow both rl and "good" as Apygoos calls it, anime pictures.


Amon's picture is perfectly fine as long as its not the same name xD

Actually, thanks to this I remembered someone that does really nice fantasy like art where the men in their drawings are usually oriental looking. So I found this, http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=29p92dh&s=3#.UoJoRJ4o7cs :D
Makes me want to have him run a tea house or something and be very spiritual like. Since I remembered that Unalaq (Spelling?) Was a spiritual waterbender, so could my character :O

Yep. After Aang and before Korra. ^^ That way, it leaves a lot of room for plot that goes on in the city without having to be entirely based on the show. (LIke no worrying about Amon or Tarloc or anything.)

Posting my interest.

So republic city is the setting?

Also is the game limited to just water, fire, earth? (Since Tenzin and his kids are the only known Air Benders?)

Yes and Yes, however, Fire Benders can know Lightning since its more common now, (As one of the characters already is working at, theres power plants and such for lightning benders to work at.) And Metal Benders are allowed if they apart of the police force. ^^

Also, if anyone wishes they COULD do blood bending but it IS illegal still IC. Also, The ability to do it without a full moon was in Tarloc and Amon's family only, so, it'd have to be during a full moon for anyone in Rp :P

I was thinking a firebender who works in construction.

Spends his day on the high rises welding steel girdles in Republic city's growing sky rises.

I have a question since my interest was peaked. What about the aspects of characters that have been touched by spirits like the moon spirit and so on. I have a idea of firebender along those lines.

Well my character is very in tune with spirits, though I haven't decided whether or not he's been touched by one quite yet. I don't I'll have him be, though I've no idea how he got his silver hair. xD

I think it should be fine. I don't see anyone arguing. It's already been shown that not just the avatar or his/her offspring can be involved with the spirit world so I don't see any issue. Especially since in the beginning, Yue turned into the moon after she gave the life of it's spirit back and she had no involvement with the avatar. So, yeah, go ahead.

Apygoos is too fast for me. xD The character thread also has links to the rp and the OOC. After you post your character you are free to post, since I don't think I'll need to look it over. The details and "rules" are laid out and if anyone has any questions ask me. ^^
