Getting Started

Post by Alora on Mon Jan 05, 2015 9:44 pm

Welcome to Avatar Legacy!

You have probably found your way here because you're new here or perhaps you are thinking of joining. If you haven't already, the first thing you should do right now is read the rules. Once that is done you will be on your way to roleplaying on this site.

Summary


"Earth. Fire. Air. Water. Only the Avatar can master all four elements and bring balance to the world."


The world is split up into four different nations, The Fire Nation, Earth Kingdom, The Water Tribes and The Air Nomads. Each Nation holds geographical land masses relative to their respective elements. The Water Tribes are located on the north and south poles of the world as The Fire Nation lays in the west and The Earth Kingdom with the largest continent in the east. The Air Temples are located around the world, all in places the can usually only be reached by flying bison or air bending.

Trouble is brewing amongst all the nations however.

The Fire Nation has recently launched an attack on the Air Temples, attempting to kill off the next avatar however the genocide wasn't a full success. The Air Temples took some damage but otherwise they are fine.. The only thing is that the avatar is missing.

As the news has spread throughout the world the nations are tense and people are fretting over the thought of war.

Will you help the missing avatar and try keep the balance? Or lean towards the ideals of chaos and war?

Character Creation

Important Topics
Character Creation
Character Sheet Sample
-

Character creation is a large part of nearly all roleplaying sites including this one. Here we have a different system to most sites. Instead of approval processes and set restrictions we have implemented a different system. With system you won't need to wait around for staff to get to your profile and let your imagination run wild with creation so long if its within the rules.

Though there is no more waiting, it is required that you create a character sheet before you can roleplay as that character. You can not start roleplaying until you have a character sheet up with the essential details in it.

If there is any confusion in the system or character sheet please message me or other staff with your queries.

Multiple Characters

With the system we have in place you are able to make as many characters as you like. If you wish to create a new account for a new character please contact staff and let them know, otherwise you can keep all your characters on one account.

Canon

Here we acknowledge an important concept known as canon. Canon are aspects of the series that are considered valid as fact, event, or etcetera. The canon we're following is that of the Avatar universe and as such it's important to avoid contradictions as well as inform other members when they are breaking it. For example, a bender is only able to bend one element so "Tracy is able to bend earth and water as her mother was an earth bender and her father a water bender" is invalid, as we see in the series despite Bolin and Maku having parents of different bending styles, they only became one type of bender themselves.

It is important to keep in canon with man-made creations too, in the series there are no guns, computers or technology of the recent age.

There is also site-canon. This refers to the events, facts and history that happens to the Avatar world on this site. They will be recorded in the Plots and Events section of the site for referral later on. If any part of the world map is destroyed and not repaired through RP, staff will eventually announce a reparation period for that part of the map.

Again, if you have any questions contact a staff member or me for assistance.

Spirits and The Spirit World

The Spirit world is a parallel plane of reality that coexists alongside the mortal world. To enter the Spirit World you can meditate, but you will be unable to use bending skills while there.

Spirits are immortal supernatural entities which often embody different aspects of life and nature. They come in different shapes and sizes with often unique properties.

Journals & Timelines

Important Links

Timelines & Template
Journals Guideline

A timeline is simply a topic with a timeline of links to topics your character has been in. It isn't compulsory for you to have one but it is highly recommended as to keep up with where your character has been and when.

Journals are topics where you can post your characters thoughts and entries about where they have been whether it be through RP with others or like self-topics. This is completely optional but can be fun for writing creatively as your character in first person.

If you are unfamiliar with the series there are sites that you can watch it on like watchcartoononline.com or an Avatar, The Legend of Korra Wiki you read to find out about more about the series for yourself.

Please don't hesitate to ask myself or other staff any queries you have and most importantly, enjoy yourself!
