Avatar the Last Air bender Idea
I like to draw and art stuff. But I don't have all the much patience to sit down and organize the many, many thoughts. So I was wondering if you guys would be interested in working with me on this idea.
Basically, if you follow the Avatar the Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra Series [SPOILERS--->]
Korra loses her bending powers right? Right, so my idea is that during that time the "avatar spirit" or whatever it is considered in which the user is allowed to use all the elements, is sent into another child of the next nation. This would mean the child is born of the Earth Nation. But my idea is that he is born similar to Aang with heavy influence with the spiritual world. This being said, this new "demi-Avatar" is kept a secret, from a secret order.
If you are familiar with the Legend of Korra, it took place during perhaps a early 20th century theme. I love that type of theme and would like to follow through with it. Since this guy is born during Korra's teenage years, it means korra would be in her 30s-40 by the time this "demi-Avatar" becomes of age to start his actions. Whether we keep Korra in or not is up to you guys, but I feel it would be interesting to have her killed, and the world is left avatar-less once again but a powerless baby, or so they believe.
Sorry as I said, I'm awful at organizing my thoughts... Going back to the following through, I would like to either include a finding of a "new world" which may be far-stretched. But I'd like for these peoples to be "uncivilized" or labeled that way. And the citizens do have powers as well, but of a certain different nature. I kind of like the idea of incorporating an additional deity type thing. Instead of following Buddhist beliefs, it will have more of a western approach.
And the other feature, I would like to incorporate is possibly a war like the early 20th century included. This additional "world war" similar to the past problems- but this time is caused by this new approaching world. (Kind of like finding america, but it's a later date, which is why I say far-stretched.../it might just be to much going on)
Anyways I have so many thoughts rush in my head considering this world, so if anyone would like to discuss it and edit the plot holes and add to it I would love the collaborative discussion.
Finally if you're thinking there's a main character so how exactly is this a roleplaying? Well I figured we could start a little community towards this project where the people roleplay the characters that will appear in artwork. Whether a full-fledged amateur comic or simple mini comic strips and fanart.
Lead character roles are of course open, because I really am not one to play a lead role .-. I'm more of a sideline dude or semi-in there.
Just because there are a couple main characters, doesn't mean everyone else would be "side characters" For starters I really like the idea of the main character being a "bad guy" that sees himself as solely a weapon. And you find out how the "bad guy becomes what he is" However, there will also be huge development on the person playing korra or the replacement avatar of Korra. And the new world will open up enormous oppurtunities that can grow as the idea progresses or even whie the roleplaying is in play. And the story will be heavily influenced by the other characters involved in the story.
This could be an interesting idea, and would say canon characters should be kept out of the RP so would be good with the Korra dying thing. While finding a 'new world' type thing in the avatar universe feels a little world with how big and how many nations/continents are around, it could still be an interesting dynamic meeting the avatar world with a vastly different culture.
I really don't think that the Avatar spirit works that way. From what we've seen in the series, it transfers after death, and after death only. Of course, this is non-canon, so do whatever you want.
BUT... if you're fine with alternate plots, here's one:
Monozygotic (identical) twins. I know this is over-used, but bear with me. Since identical twins are developed by the same zygote, they are technically the "same person." How this would transfer to Avatar spirit/power duplication and/or slippage, I have no idea. You could do dual Avatars, two half-Avatars, one primary Avatar with slippage to another (there you'd have your original Avatar + demi-Avatar dynamic), etc.
Just an idea! I enjoy the series, so I'll keep tabs on this.
