So while we have yet to reach the conclusion of Korra's story in The Legend of Korra, this idea came form me wanting to play an OC Avatar. This though of course prompts the possibility of a good small group game. how so? well you might have guessed it, a new Team Avatar. what I'm interested to see if maybe four or five people would be interested in this role-play/collaborative story. Character building, world building, that's all part of it.
This will be an Avatar world about 18-25 years after Korra has passed on, so you might be able to take a guess how old the new Avatar might be~ I'm not quite sure where in his avatar journey he would be, but as we all know, friends help it quite a bit ;)

I'll join with a character I had in another Avatar rp. Badass Earthbender who I'd like to be a child of Toph or Lin if that's possible.

Love the Idea Apy, I could step in and be your fire bender! :D Since fire is my element and I love it's destructive capabilities I think i'd do very well at playing a fire-bender.

well while interest is still trickling in I should make a few things clear.
While it is in fact an RP, I view it as a collaborative writing between us. This Game I want to go very long term, and really get to dive deep into the world we create.
where I'm at in my own characters construction is:
He is a 23 year old earth nation boy, born to a firebending father and an earth bender mother. Very similar to Korra, he demonstrated great aptitude in bending his parents elements, already being a master earth bender that many compare to the Beifong bloodline. Soon enough he had to begin his travels to learn to master the elements. His father taught him the basics of firebending, but told him of a place in the Fire nation to seek out a stronger master that might better handle the power of the avatar [a few other reasons too, but id rather that  come out in RP]. Airbending is his challenge and he took several years mastering. I am considering making his story pick up either at the tail end of his Airbending training, or he just then "mastered" airbending, and now takes the next step to learn water bending.
alot of this is subject to change and/or expansion. this is just where I am currently.

I need you guys' advice, since takun isn't being useful (glareglare!)
Should I play a chi blocking warrior badass type, like the kind that can hold her own or beat most benders? Or should i play an air nomad? I got the basic char figured out, like look and personality. Just need to figure this out..

I was thinking of an Earthbender descended from Toph. Either Lin or Suyin's grandson, and he is the current "prodigy" of the Beifong's, able to utilize all the sub-sets of Earthbending due to natural talent and a lifetime of training. Maybe he and the Avatar could be friends, and the reason he's so often compared to the Beifong's is that he and my character spar all the time or something.

I'm very interested in this game. I, like the familiar face I see in here (hey Jugg!) was part of another avatar game that has since died down.

If possible/allowed I would like to play an air nomad! Or if that spot is already taken, a fire bender!  :-)

Awesome! Thank you so much!
Here's my possible character sheet if the air nomad idea is okay :)


Name: Mei Yun (Which means Beautiful Cloud)

Age: 18

Nationality: Earth Nation

Bending arts/sub bending style [if applicable]: Air bending

Personality traits: Mei Yun is a sweet girl; kindhearted, quiet, and calm. As a pacifistic she would rather talk out disagreements than fight or be part of a confrontation. She also loves to meet and make new friends with people, spirits, and animals alike! (Brief Bio: Standing at 5 feet 8 inches she weighs approximately 120 lbs. She is physically fit and has great flexibility and agility. Her hair is a short pixy cut style the color of snow. Her eyes that of faded jade, warm and always happy. She wears the customary colors of the air nomads; garb consisting of yellows, oranges, and reds.  Also, on her left wrist she bears a tattoo of the air nation emblem of the spiral orb.)

History: Mei has been an orphan her whole life. Growing up with nothing she was accustom to not owning any worldly possessions and being in solitude. As a child she loved hearing stories about the avatar before she and the other children would be put to bed. Fascinated by the air nomad culture, Mei would get her hands on every book she could find to learn more about them. Soon she became well versed in air nation culture, history, and habits and around age 4 found she had the abilities of an air bender. Mei spent most of her energy trying to become one with the spirit world through meditation and practicing her air bending. Through her rigorous meditation sessions she developed a strong bond with the spirits that inhabited the world. Her dream has always been to travel to the air temples but her ties to the Earth Nation has always kept her grounded. Wanting to give back to her former place of residence, Mei has been teaching the current orphans how to read and write since the passing of her former instructor. 

Connections: Possible connection with Jugg's character? That's up to him though. Otherwise, no connections :)

Name: Lu Ten Beifong
Age: 21
Nationality: Earth Nation
Bending arts/sub bending style [if applicable]: Earthbender (Metalbender, Lavabender, Sandbender)
Personality traits: Lu Ten seems to have inherited a mixture of personalities between his grandmother(Lin), grand aunt(Suyin), and great grandmother(Toph). During training or combat situations, he mostly maintains a very serious demeanor, trying his hardest to overcome the situation. At times though he'll slip out a joke or do something silly in the middle of a fight. Outside of training though, it's very easy to see Toph in him, and he's just a joker who likes to have fun. And his dedication to family and friends is unwavering. He'd die to save any one of his friends if it was necessary.

History: While many thought it wouldn't happen because she was too dedicated to her job and too tough, Lin Beifong finally found a husband who accepted and loved her for who she was; a man named Fong who'd come from Zaofu to join the Republic City police force after seeing Lin in action during the attack by Zaheer and the Inner Circler of the Red Lotus. He quickly worked his way up and caught her attention. They began to spend time together and it wasn't long before they fell for one another.

 After a few years, Lin got pregnant. She and Fong remained in Republic City and started a family, and Lin opened her own branch of the Beifong School of Earthbending after retiring from the Police Force. She and Fong raised their kids in a loving, yet somewhat strict environment. And their youngest, Shang, set out on his own when he was 18 to see the world. It's clear he got that from somebody in their family. He finally settled down years later, and he had a son he named Lu Ten in honor of Iroh's friendship with Toph.

 Lu Ten was born with a rare form of Albinism that caused him to have white hair and red eyes, but his family didn't love him any less. Lu Ten from a young age heard countless stories of Great-Grandma Toph, Grandma Lin, and Auntie Suyin; even stories about Opal and the others. This caused him to want to make his family proud, so he trained and trained and trained since childhood to make them proud of him. It turns out he was a prodigy, and soon became known far and wide for his mastery over seemingly all forms of Earthbending as he grew. He participated in tournaments across the globe, and even took his Pro-Bending team, the Beifong Bruisers to two championships.

(I'll edit his story once I work out how he and the Avatar are going to meet, or if they already know each other)

Name: Akari

Age: 20

Nationality: Water Tribe

Bending arts/sub bending style [if applicable]: Water Bending

Personality traits: Akari is a very caring, very compassionate young woman. Her friends sometimes call her the ‘mother hen fish’ type. She does worry, but she also knows how to have fun. She is always cheerful, and always trying to look on the bright side of things. Even when things seem their bleakest, she seeks the positive. She is a very talented Water Bender, one of the strongest of the Southern Water Tribe. She is good in a fight, often finding inventive ways to come out on top.

History: Akari was born in the Southern Water Tribe to Takret (mother) and Nilak (father). Before she could even walk she showed signs of being a Water Bender. And by age 6, she had become the most talented of the Water Bending apprenticesin her age group. Her life growing up wasn’t anything out of the ordinary, really. She is an only child, but her parents didn’t want to spoil her. They taught her the value of hard work, of being a responsible part of her village. She has dabbled in the healing arts, but it’s something she still needs a lot of training in.

Connections: None Yet
