IN-GAME HISTORY

Post by Story Teller on Thu Apr 28, 2016 11:43 pm

From the perspective of a viewer watching Avatar, it is easy to piece together the rich history of this world. However, this is because we, the viewers, are given exclusive windows into character's lives and flashbacks to secret events, sometimes from over 10,000 years ago. The characters living in this world are not so lucky.

You will find here a complete history lesson - the same as the average character in the world of Avatar would have in the time of Avatar Korra. However, not all people have such information available to them. The ability Academics grants deeper knowledge of the history and lore of the world, and someone with a higher rating of Academics might even know about the ancient Lion Turtles, whereas someone with an Academics rating of zero would only know about current events, and might not even know about the hundred year war. Different historical events will be marked with an Academics rating from 0 to 5 to reflect at what level someone would know of this information.

FIRST AGE of the AVATAR: PRE-WAR (c.9,829 BG — 1 BG)

Post by Story Teller on Fri Apr 29, 2016 6:01 am

Unknown date before c.3,829 BG


  • Academics x4
    Spirit x2


    As humanity left the cities established on the lion turtles, they begin to come in to contact with each other. The different peoples begin to wage war against each other, forcing Wan to intervene in order to maintain peace. His efforts, however, are of little success. The violent conflicts continue until his death and beyond. The next Avatar is born into the cycle after Wan's death.



    c.3,829 BG

  • Air Nomad Only
    Academics x5
    Spirit x3


    The airbending Guru Laghima achieves weightlessness and lives his final forty years without touching the ground.



    830 BG

  • Avatar Only

    A past Avatar defeats Hundun and mortally wounds his brother, forcing the conjoined twin kings to retreat to the Spirit World.



    Unknown date before 345 BG

  • Academics x5
    Spirit x1


    Wan Shi Tong brings his library from the Spirit World into the physical world.



  • Academics x4

    Humanity splits into the four nations, each divided by the respective bending arts. The Air Nomads learn the art of airbending from the flying bison, the Earth Kingdom learns the art of earthbending from the badgermoles (Oma and Shu being the first known humans to earthbend), the Sun Warriors learn the art of firebending from the dragons, and the Water Tribes learn the art of waterbending by observing the pull of the moon on the ocean tides.

  • Water Tribe Only
    Academics x3


    A group of waterbenders from the Northern Water Tribe construct a large city out of ice in order to unite the various tribes inhabiting the North Pole region.
    Following a civil unrest, the Water Tribe —which was originally centered around the North Pole— splits into two groups: one stayed at the North Pole, while the other group went out to settle the South Pole. Relations with their sister tribe were later healed, and the two tribes would gather together at annual New Moon celebrations.
    A large group of waterbenders from the Southern Water Tribe, who are wandering through the Earth Kingdom, discover the Foggy Swamp and, comfortable with the large amount of water there, decide to stay, forming the Foggy Swamp Tribe. The Southern Water Tribe never learns of this offshoot and the Foggy Swamp Tribe itself later forgets its own origins.

  • Fire Nation Only
    Academics x3


    The Sun Warriors gradually fade into obscurity as their civilization declines, leaving many ruins across their island archipelago. The Sun Warriors are believed to have gone extinct, though in reality a handful hiding in the ruins would continue their culture for centuries. The art of firebending, however, was passed on to the other inhabitants of the islands. These would gradually coalesce into the "Fire Nation". Originally the Fire Nation was a spiritual people ruled by Fire Sages, much as the Air Nomads were led by their monks. Over time, however, one sage rose to prominence above the others, ruling the Fire Nation as a sovereign, and the office became hereditary, beginning the line of Fire Lords.

  • Earth Kingdom Only
    Academics x3


    The vast Earth Kingdom is gradually united under the political authority of the city-state of Ba Sing Se. The King of Ba Sing Se becomes Earth King, overlord of all of the smaller kingdoms within the Earth Kingdom, some of which retain their own hereditary lordship.

  • Air Nomad Only
    Academics x3
    Spirit x1


    Avatar Yangchen of the Air Nomads is born in the Western Air Temple, after the death of her predecessor. Her reign as Avatar is a peaceful one, due to her fierce dedication to keeping balance and serving the world.



    After mastering the 4 elements, her fist mission lead her to an island once watched over by a spirit named Lady Tienhai, and her former protector, General Old Iron, came to destroy the humans for killing her. Yangchen brokered a deal, banished all people from the island and promised no one would ever build on the sacred land again, and constructed a statue to Lady Tienhai. She also had the Air Nomads come every year to pay respect to Lady Tienhai and maintain her deal with General Old Iron. This is later called Yangchen's Festival.
    She dies around 345 BG, and Avatar Kuruk is born in the Northern Water Tribe.

  • Water Tribe Only
    Academics x3
    Spirit x1




    Avatar Kuruk tries to kill Koh, the Face Stealer, as revenge for stealing the face of his fiancée Ummi. This event is confusing to place chronologically, as if Koh's description of the event is taken literally, it would have happened c.800-700 BG, over three hundred years before Kuruk's death.

    312 BG — Year of the Dragon

  • Academics x4
    Spirit x1


    Avatar Kuruk dies; Avatar Kyoshi of the Earth Kingdom is born.

    c.270 BG — Year of the Dog

    Academics x5




    Avatar Kyoshi kills the warlord Chin and founds Kyoshi Island; the War of Chin the Conqueror ends with the victory of the Earth Kingdom government. The 46th Earth King restores his reign over the whole Earth Kingdom, though civil unrest begins to spread on the continent. The day of Chin's death is remembered as Avatar Day in Chin Village and Kyoshi Day on Kyoshi Island.
    Sometime after this event, a peasant uprising in Ba Sing Se spurs Kyoshi to create the Dai Li. In the process, the Earth Kingdom is turned into a constitutional monarchy.
