If you're familiar with Avatar and/or the Legend of Korra, then you can skip over the basic world introduction and move on to the plot introduction. If not, read on:
Twenty years ago, Korra lost her bending to Amon in a duel. While the Equalist leader spared the Avatar's life, she began to waste away and died just over a year later. In this nineteen year span, no new Avatar has been found. Amon is dead as well, and his young son tries desperately to lead the army he was left with, though he cannot take away bending like his father.
A school has been set up in Republic City known as Siang Wang Academy, which accepts talented benders and non-benders alike to make them great warriors. Its true goal, however, is to find the Avatar. The Academy sends out search parties to find the Avatar, and tests each student for their potential to master more than one element. These methods have lead to some students being able to learn more than one element, though these students are rare, and they never fully master their secondary element.
This RP will focus on a group of students sent out to search for the Avatar. These students will be challenged by the Equalists, bending gangs, and several other groups who are against the return of the Avatar. A few among them will be non-benders, some dual-benders, and the rest benders.
Do keep in mind, however, that dual-benders cannot master both of their elements. If your "learned" element is fire, you cannot create lightning. If it is earth, you cannot metal-bend.
I will be hoping that someone wants to play Amon's son, but if not, I will make a CS for him, and it would be nice to have some characters not from the Academy (a Pro Bender or two, maybe an ex-Equalist or a street urchin). Be creative with your sheets!
If you're interested, please leave a comment. I've got a little more planned, and time to answer questions. Here is a CS skeleton in case you have a character already planned:
