If you could rewrite history, how would you do it? What would you do differently? An Avatar role play

Introduction

This role play is my attempt to rekindle an idea I liked from two previous role plays (you can check it out here, or here).

The Fire Nation has brutally attacked and destroyed the Air Nomad home. Fire Lord Sozin is bent on conquering the world, and will not hesitate to do the same thing to any who stand in his way. Avatar Roku - the world's best hope for peace - has vanished. The new Avatar is faced with a decision - will he (or she) run, or stand? Will they attempt to overthrow Sozin? Surely an entire people cannot be so cruel and bloodthirsty - there must be someone who can lead the Fire Nation to peace.
Will they try to convince Sozin to change his evil ways? Perhaps he should be given a chance. Or will the Avatar help him in his cause? Because Lord Sozin will stop at nothing to achieve conquest, and is hunting the Avatar in hopes of exploiting his (or her) power to do so.

Open Roles
Avatar's companions
Earth Kingdom resistance
Bending masters who might teach the Avatar on her journey
Any other bender or non-bender who would fit well in our story

You do not have to take one of the above roles, but those are the ones that need to be filled before we can begin

Toggle Rules

1. All Roleplaygateway rules apply

2. Post at least 1 paragraph (about 5 sentences). This gives your fellow roleplayers something to work with, and also makes the story more interesting.

3. If you cannot post at least 1 paragraph, take it to PM with all parties involved. Such situations may include fights, conversations, etc. Once the sequence is completed, post it on the thread. If my character is not involved in the sequence, you can PM me the completed post to put up or designate another player who participated.

4. Please use proper English spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Otherwise, your posts will be difficult to understand and follow.

5. Blood, violence, and romance are acceptable. Use discretion when deciding how detailed to get with the romance. In other words, if your characters have sex, simply stating that they did so is enough.

The soldiers were still tired and somewhat disorganized from the fighting by the time they started chasing Jin - and he thanked his lucky star for that, as the shouting and the spear tips eventually fell behind, and he thought for a moment that he was about to get away. But he was not that lucky, as a gout of flame suddenly made clear. Jin spun around, ready to clear a ring around himself as the flames caught on to the forest floor - only to find the flames died out before the touched the floor, nowhere near so recklessly thrown as he would have assumed. Looking over his shoulder, he found himself surrounded before he had a chance to try to run. Carefully moving to face his attackers, he swore inwardly and assumed a ready stance. That's what you get for showing yourself.

The eel hounds trampled the undergrowth as they circled him, leaving no useful openings. Jin's eyes darted from one soldier to the next and found - at a glance, at least - no one he knew. That was probably a good thing. For a moment he considered lying, telling them that he was a forward scout or spy, but he was a terrible liar and knew it. He turned back and forth, switching stances in indecision as he stared down the soldiers. Then they were ordered to take him, and Jin's fuse finally burned down. Spinning around again, he shot a short-lived circle of fire between him and the approaching scouts, singing speartips and threatening eyebrows, and as the clearing they caught him in was lit up by the flame, he spotted some tell-tale rank insignia. Jin raised his hands, and bright jets of fire sprouted from his closed fists as he faced the officer, glancing left and right to make sure he wouldn't catch a spear in the back while he talked.

"Captain," he said, "you'll forgive me if I don't bow, but I'm not a member of the army. All I've done is trek peacefully through these woods." He glanced over at the approaching mass of soldiers from the camp, "and maybe stop to help a fallen countryman on the way." Getting out from under dozens of soldiers surrounding him would be virtually impossible - especially as he'd rather not kill any of them. Dragging this out was the worst possible thing he could do. "There really is no call for this."

The scouts and foot soldiers stepped back from the flames that died just before reaching them, but did not lower their weapons. Sotaro stared down Jin. Had he not demonstrated his firebending, Sotaro would have been inclined to disregard his explanation. He had the vague look of a Fire Nation soldier, and spoke like one, but otherwise dressed like a hunter . . . or a vagrant. Deserter? If so, Sotaro had no choice but to take the man. Spy? If so, for whose side?

Sotaro considered. Under usual circumstances he may not have cared if someone decided to live as a huntsman, but this was not peacetime. A firebender trekking through the woods alongside an army looking like an Earth Kingdom hunter during wartime was questionable.

A dispatch of soldiers from the camp caught up to the band. There were perhaps a dozen, weapons drawn.

"Captain," breathed the one in the lead. "This one was caught trespassing after the attack. Lee claims he was trying to take his uniform."

Having no time or patience for needless indecision, Sotaro motioned for his men to close in.

"I don't care much for bowing," said Sotaro simply. "But these days, everyone is in the army. And considering recent events, I can't afford to let you walk."

The unarmed infantrymen surrounded Jin more closely while the spearmen formed a wall behind them to prevent escape.

If this man was telling the truth, Sotaro would have have some explaining to do. If he truly was treacherous, he would be in an even bigger bind. In any case, Sotaro was not about to risk a potential rebel bringing information to the enemy or leading another attack.

Re: Another Way

I hoped he wouldn't. Too bad Sotaro cannot afford to act the nice guy here. That wouldn't be any fun anyway. He's not so bad once you get to know him though, promise.

Re: Another Way

Fine by me. Jin isn't just going to stand by and let himself get captured, though - at least not without some powerful rhetoric. :P

Re: Another Way

I agree, Jin should go so that we can determine where to go from here. So, what do you guys think of my suggested course of action? If Sotaro does end up capturing Jin, that is the direction I will take things in. It seems like a reasonable way for most of the characters to get in contact with each other.

As for Azulon and Zerath, Redred, I can get Mei Rong (my second character) to send reinforcements or otherwise stir up trouble. I haven't done much with her since we started because she's currently with Sozin, who is played by Addrinvan. Addrinvan, if you post a response, I'll continue. Or, I could just make my next post with Mei, and you could follow.

Re: Another Way

I figured Jin would go first. I just have some stuff to get through before I post.

Re: Another Way

I'm going to wait until morning in the RP to make my next post. I can't imagine there would be much to say for Azulon or Zerath; they're just moving through Yu Dao with a gigantic army heading East.

Re: Another Way

So who's going first? Qin or Jin?

Re: Another Way

A parlay would be great. That was the general idea. Sotaro may or may not capture Jin. If he does, the Avatar can be close enough to hear the commotion and intercept or run into the Fire Nation the following morning. Perhaps she can try to free Jin (she and Qin can team up if you'd like). Actually, I have an idea for this - if you all agree to go that route, I was planning on having Sotaro try to convince Yuzaku to heal the soldiers infected by those spiked bamboo rods (thanks, Qin ;) ). Presuming he has any sort of healing ability, that is. That is up to you, Alliqua. He'll probably refuse either way, but Jangmu may sway him to do it for Jin's freedom. Just an idea. I know part of the fun of a roleplay is to create the story as we go, but this may be a good way for several of our characters to interact.

Otherwise, the game will go wherever we take it. As GM, I take into account everyone's suggestions and sometimes try to guide the roleplay in one direction or another for the purposes of a linear story. However, since this is an open world type of roleplay, no one is obliged to go with it. We're rewriting history, after all.

Re: Another Way

I didn't assume that's where this is going. Sotaro has no benders with him, only scouts, and conservation of ninjutsu is on my side. Maybe we can parlay. :P

I'm fine with that too, though, although I'd like all of this to get me in contact with the avatar and friends in the end.

Re: Another Way

Ok, response is up. Thank you all for your patience.

My hope is to actually get the army moving again. Presuming that Jin remains captured, do you want to have Qin infiltrate the camp at Fei Long as the troops are getting across the basin? There would be enough time, considering that they have heavy machinery and some are injured. This would move the timeline to early the following day.

I'm not sure how far away you want Jangmu and company to be, Alligua and Resurgam. They can be camped close enough for any or all to intercept now, or at Fei Long.

Re: Another Way

You know, once Jin's captured, Qin could infiltrate the ranks and bust him out. Just a thought though.

Re: Another Way

That could work

Re: Another Way

Jin could have been dragging corpses around for some time before he was discovered, and even if Sotaro spots him from some distance away, I'm sure eel hounds can easily catch up with a man on foot. That's only one possibility, though, and I'm fine either way.

Re: Another Way

Seems like Sotaro and his troops have one thing after another. Can an army not just pass through the countryside in peace? (nudge nudge, wink wink - intonations are difficult in writing).

In any case, it seems like Jin arrived at the camp before Sotaro went off to run Qin down. We have a few options - Sotaro can return to camp and track Jin down once he sees the uproar (this would require a bit of a stretch in terms of timeframe if Jin arrived shortly before Sotaro went after Qin, but you said that an indeterminate amount of time has passed), or the two could cross paths on his way back.

Alliqua, if you're up for it, we can have Jangmu and Sotaro intercept Jin near the Fire Nation camp.

Re: Another Way

Well, I had my character cause a bit of a ruckus in the army camp after an indeterminate amount of time. If anyone feels so inclined, the chase would not be very hard to notice, what with soldiers yelling and running around with torches and what not. Sotaro could very well run him down on his eel hound, and I'm sure an air bender could easily catch up as well. If anyone wants to link up, and wants me to change my post in any way to accomodate them, I'm all ears.

Re: Another Way

Alright sounds like a good idea to me Resurgam. :)

Re: Another Way

Alliqua, Jangmu is going to be very slow to trust, although she knows they need to recruit allies to stop the Fire Nation. I'm thinking maybe if we put our group in the path of Sotaro's troops, a little skirmish with the Fire Nation could give Daichi the opportunity to ease Jangmu's mind by defending the Avatar/doing some damage to Fire Nation forces?

I'm also thinking that maybe we should write our next post together through PM's so we can post the whole conversation that determines what Jangmu and Yuzaku do with Daichi at once instead of it being spread out over several posts.

Re: Another Way

Sorry I was gone for so long, my internet killed itself... as in my dog pissed on my router. Back now though.

Re: Another Way

I didn't want to send the prince of the Fire Nation down to Omashu and potentially hijack your operations there. Azulon (remember that I've kept him as an NPC, so you and Addrinvan can make him act as you please) can certainly send some reinforcements that way. A more active presence on the battlefield by the Avatar would certainly call the landing army's attention. That, and between the Western coasts and Ba Sing Se is a big stretch of land; it'll probably take a long time even by foot to get there.

Aside from that, Azulon's landed in already conquered territories. His presence and movement right now has no real impact to what's happening with everyone else; Roku should be able to catch up time-wise anyways. I was just making a post, keeping up with the time you're in so I can introduce my character into the RP.

Re: Another Way

Just saw your post, Redred33mer. I presume you'll be headed across the Earth Kingdom by land once you've reached the shores? Omashu is the next target for the Fire Nation at this point, and a couple of contingents are headed that way. It seems natural to go there first, since we are all in that general area at the moment. Ba Sing Se is a pretty big target so early on, but we'd definitely get there.

The end of my last post was intended to allow Roku the opportunity to allow his characters to gather themselves, and for the Avatar and her crew to catch up time-wise. The plan is to meet up around Omashu, where there will hopefully be more action.

Re: Another Way

Sounds good. I was only covering all my bases - Zerath will be an interesting addition.

Also, I have tagged my posts accordingly. The tagging option on this site has not been cooperating very well with m computers recently.
