[nah, no need to have guests spamming things up (most would just advertise anyways). deleting accounts is fairly easy, yo. xD]

As the all-seeing eye and all-knowing presence on this site, I've got answers for each and every question.
1. Gender discrimination in the Northern Water Tribe has been fully eradicated. Men are often still encouraged for combat and women for healing (kind of how any society sort of makes these "Gender roles"), but it is fully legal for women to go into combat (or even men to go into healing. I have at least one of both such characters).

1a. That's a question you'd have to ask Bryke. I assume it was appeal to tradition, which, after the wars, was sort of done away with for practical reasons. And to those who think that time-honored traditions can't be so swiftly done away with... look up Chinese Foot Binding, which lasted for over 1,000 years and then was swiftly ended around 1911.
There exists plenty of waterbenders on this site that know a bit of both, and it's just a sitewide assumption that the Water Tribes allowed the two to merge simply because of the aforementioned practicality. Bloodbending, however, ios in fact illegal in the Tribes (and illegal to make as a character because of how OP it is)

2. Characters can develop on this site through good writing and RPing (something the writers of Korra should take a hint from), and some can in fact develop or create new abilities (some already have). Obviously it would depend on the ability, but if there are reasonable explanations as to both how it works and how your character learns it... I will generally give it the green light. It also depends on a person's RP skills. some people tend to go for OP stuff more than others, so the more I know a person, the more accurate I'll be able to be.

3. Ice is ice, and while there are variables depending on the level of ice, some can start as early as intermediate or even beginner (thawing and freezing water, at least). Generally, if you can get it to fit in context of your character's span of abilities, it is okay. I've never heard of crystal before. it sounds like little more than fancy-looking ice.

4. hrm... I never got that impression, but on here, it is far from the truth. In fact, most of the Earth Kingdom's strongest forces are female as of right now, and it is currently being ruled by a queen who appears to have no significant other. I think you might have dreamed it all, yo. xD (besides... Kyoshi Warriors, anyone?)


Hope that clears a few things up. Welcome aboard, kiddo.

I can answer 3 and 4 pretty well...

3.  Basically anything that causes a certain amount of character control will be something we won't allow.  So bloodbending, spirits that can take over bodies, etc.  And while we don't usually get it, certain abilities might be far too Godlike to be allowable like...I don't know...meteor bending or something.  I can't think of anything else off the top of my head.

4.  Yeah, change your account name all you want.

For 1 and 2, to the best of my knowledge, the forum is in a state of peace right now.  Big plots are hard to take on because a lot most of our characters are not military or world leaders, so it ends up being like 5 people making war posts.  Zul can probably fill you in on the site canon far better than I can.

crystals are just fancy rocks, so yeah. earthbending.

fanfiction can either be really awesome (rare) or downright crud (sadly, common).
to answer the other questions...

1. here is where you can get an overview of what has happened. It is very easy to find given that it's a global announcement and is therefore viewable on all boards. Otherwise, Umbra/Loki's right. owing to lack of activity/dedication, we mostly just sandbox it around here, focusing more on individual characters and their development.  However, we usually make announcements when anything important happens, so yeah.

2. the political status quo is about equal. the Earth Kingdom is militaristically powerful, but are passive, and therefore there is little to no trouble apart from everyday crime you'll find just about everywhere. the Water Tribes went through a string of succession crises, but those have been resolved and all seems to be well enough.

3. Umbra pretty much answered that one. Just nothing game-breaking please.
4. you can change the name if you want. as long as it matches the name of your character.


[and remember that whole thing about me being the all-seeing eye? well... I can see you even when invisible. I wasn't joking. Razz]

we have a few people that have sort of tried starting groups like that, but none stayed active enough for them to take off.
cactus juice is legal, and so are most drugs and alcohol xP.

there are a couple of underground societies, some rumored to be linked to prominent people such as the Earth Queen or the Avatar... but it's hard to tell.

Otherwise, feel free to start making a character and whatnot.
