Avatar: The Dying Art iCheck
The world has come a long way since the days of Avatar Korra 200 years ago. However, with the death of Hiroshi, the Avatar who succeeded Korra, no new Avatar was born among the Fire Nation. Had the line been broken somehow? No one really knows. Nevertheless, technology continues to grow, and as it does, the ancient arts of Bending slowly diminishes in its wake. Where Benders were the dominating force of the old Hundred Year War and at the pinnacle of debate during the Equalist Crisis, now they seem to be all but extinct. Only the most dedicated of traditionalists still remember the ways of the Earth, Fire, Water, or Airbenders. During all of this, the lack of a new Avatar instigated a reformation in Republic City. With benders becoming so few in number, the council can hardly keep its membership full. Because of this, the Republic was officially reformed into the World Empire approximately 20 years ago. With this change, Republic City was re-dubbed Empire City, the supposed "Capital of the World". When Sheng, the first Emperor, passed away, his son Yang succeeded the throne, becoming the second Emperor. Yang almost immediately sought to expand his power, claiming that it had been his father's dying wish that Empire City spread it's influence across the land, and become the World Empire. Now poised to start a war with the rest of the world, Yang almost eagerly awaits the opportune moment to strike.
During the time of this RP, it's been 200 years since the events of Legend of Korra. Republic City, as you read, has been turned into an Empire, and is poised to begin her expansion across the world. Bending has become a rare, almost dying art that few still practice. After all, with technology like Satomobiles and Airplanes, what need does the world still have of the old ways?
