Campaign of the Month: November 2011
Avatar: Conquest of the Imperial Order
CONQUEST OF THE IMPERIAL ORDER
Note! Currently on hiatus. See my new campaign I am currently working on as well, Godlands, Rise of the Blood-Moon Kings
2,600 years before the time of Avatar Aang, the four nations we know do not yet exist. Instead there are waring Factions, all grasping for power and independence as the Bending Arts, increasing in number in the gene pool, are becoming the prominent culture, ruling class, and military power. The current avatar, Avatar Jaraiya, is a Firebender who stands with the Dragons of the White Lotus in creating a world where all cultures can grow and live independently. The Fellowship of the Imperial Order seeks instead to unite the world under one banner and one rule, theirs. The chaos and bloodshed is disrupting the delicate balance, and is weakening the veil of the spirit world. As the veil grows weaker good and evil spirits alike are able to gain more influence in the physical realm, some even being able to take up physical form, and the weaker the veil gets the easier it will be for stronger spirits to get through. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, with the help of those brave heroes that would follow him, can stop the ripping of the veil and restore balance to the world. This is the state of the world when our young heroes meet for the first time in the World Youth Combat Tournament, little did they know that they would soon be fighting for, and influencing, the fate of the world. For better or worse, remains to be seen…
Currently the campaign is on hold due to college, jobs, and other life concerns. However, we have the group members Aumanil, Fang Po Po, and Fow Bang Chow all here going to school in the same city of Corvallis OR and we intend to pick up their story in the very near future.
At the top of the Avatar banner four Chinese characters in classical form. They form a couplet that can be translated as:
- 降卋神通 – the divine medium who has descended upon the world (the Avatar).
The four inscriptions below the banner title refer to each element, and can be translated to:
- 水善 – Water is Benevolent
- 土強 – Earth is Strong
- 火烈 – Fire is Fierce
- 气和 – Air is Peaceful
I am the Dungeon Master of this campaign based on a combination of D&D 3.5(e) and the Avatar d20 system, which can be viewed or downloaded in PDF format here: Avatar d20 PDF. Here is the official website of the Avatar d20 system.
This Avatar d20 system and this D&D campaign, Avatar: Conquest of the Imperial Order, are based off of the Nickelodian television series, Avatar The Last Airbender which can be watched online at http://allnewepisodes.com/p150/Avatar-The-Last-Airbender/
