PCs are all orphaned and are sent to live at the local Monastary on Unity Island. They live, eat, sleep and learn from the monks.

A blog for your campaign
January 02, 2011 00:10
Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!
While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!
The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!
Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.
One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.

(This game takes place 88 years before the television show: Aang <the> has just disappeared)
In a lost age the known world is divided into four equal powers: Water Tribes, Earth Kingdom, Fire Nation and Air Nomads. In each nation there’s a group of gifted people known as Benders who have the ability to manipulate their native element using martial arts and elemental magic. For thousands of years the nations lived together peacefully. But then disaster struck. The young ambitious ruler of the Fire Nation, Fire Lord Sozin, began a war of world conquest. The only one who could have prevented it was the Avatar. The Avatar is the human incarnation of the spirit of the world; he alone can master bending all four elements. But he has disappeared and the war has begun.
The Fire Nation launches a genocidal campaign on the Air Nomads. The current Fire Lord Sozin did this because after killing Avatar Roku, who was native to the Fire Nation, he realized the next one would come from the Air Nomads according to the Avatar cycle. This way he could ensure the next Avatar would not try and foil his plot for world domination just as Avatar Roku had done.
The arrival of Sozin’s Comet signal the start of the Fire Nation’s War. The comet was renamed after the Fire Nation attacked, originally it was called the Hanku Comet and it was time of great religious celebration. It was a symbol of renewal and atonement.
Fire Nation Wars: Avatar Lost
The Fire Nation forces mass in secret (disguised as celebratory troops for the up coming Hanku Comet) all around the known world weeks before the arrival of the Hanku Comet. Key military forces stand ready for a blitzkrieg attack on strategic areas. The Hanku Comet comes every 100 years it’s always been a time of religious celebration, but this time it is the signal for the Fire Nation to attack and conquer all the other nations (The Hanku Comet is renamed after the attack to Sozin’s Comet after the Fire Lord). They seek to immediately subjugate or kill all Air Benders; they must prevent the rise of the next Avatar.
Along with the complete elimination of all the atrocities of the inhabitant of Unity Island; the island is to be cleansed of the intermixing of clans the spread of this behavior will not to be tolerated. The ideas of this bastard island are a complete abomination and its people must never be allowed to contaminate the rest of the world.
The FN will take advantage of any technological advances in science and weaponry. They will seek allies in all corners of the known world and beyond. Seeking allies in the Shadowlands and dark sorcery; combat mages and bounty hunters will become ruthless minions of the Fire Lord. They will track down fugitives in all corners of the new empire.
The FN will take the best Fire Benders and form Elite Squads to be feared and to enforce the new Fire Lord doctrines. They will be tenacious in their duties and missions their uniforms will be equipped with new tech to allow them to bend lightning. All benders of all other nations will be registered, this will include magic users and psychics as well, and then they will be incorporated or eliminated. No one will be allowed to stand in the way of the Fire Nation’s complete dominance.
Concentration camps and slave labor facilities will be a part of the new ways of life for those not worthy of having the honor of being born to the Fire Nation. Special troops will seek out any and all occult and religious objects of power to help establish the new world order of Fire Lord Sozin’s vision.
The Earth Nation will become the primary focus after the Air Benders have been eliminated. The known world will be called Rokugan.
