    Hey, don't hurt me! It's not my fault that everyone not in this Phalla fails at life!
    I actually know someone who once said, in response to a similar phrase, "You fail at being queer!"

    I kid you not.

    ...What? o_O

    So, if I fail at... then... I'm... not gay?

    Or am I gay, but can't get any. Thus, making me a failure at being gay?

    Wow. My mind. It has been blown.

    typically between 50-60. 45 is probably just the lowest he could go without it horribly unbalancing.

    Some main games get larger (see suikoden, fire emblem, persona), some are smaller.

    It all depends on balance. I'd say he's hoping for around 50.

    50 was my short end. I'd've had to actually do work if I didn't get 50. On that note, signups are at 49. Role PMs will very likely go out tomorrow some time.

    And I was all looking forward to waking up to my role PM. Silly people for not signing up faster.

    Sir Fabulous, there's an easy fix for this. It's called Netflix.
    If you have a subscription with Watch Instantly (are there any that don't anymore?) I think the first season is still up on there. For a while you used to also be able to watch almost every episode on the Nickelodeon site as well, though the quality wasn't as good and their player is really, really shitty.

    Hey,
    Malkor, Jack, and Forceperson.

    You can probably still sign up.

    I don't think he's closed them yet, so there's not need to reserve unless you have to.

    All right, I should probably watch this and get at least some backstory before the game starts.

    Awesome, 50 players means the game will definitely start tonight. I will post later when I start assigning roles, so until then signups will still be accepted. After I post, only reserve spots will be available.

    One of the things that always puzzled me about Avatar is why, in a setting that so heavily borrows from chinese history, mythology, and martial arts, would they depend on western concept of elements?

    Air is not an element in the classic chinese genre. Fire, earth, wood, metal, and water are the five elements.

    +1

    Also air may be a little easier to grasp for kids as an "element" than metal or wood...

    Because it doesn't work as well thematically? Fire, earth, water, and air all have distinctive styles in the show. Wood and metal wouldn't add any variety really (plus they'd take away from the awesomeness of Toph :P), and then you'd miss out on air, which is rather distinctive.

    Just because they borrow from Asian elements and whatnot doesn't mean they need everything. Pick what makes the show the best!

    Also could you imagine wood bending or metal bending?

    It could lend itself pretty well to horror. Vines and stakes for wood benders. Tons of impalement and ensnaring.

    Plus metal bending would be like Magneto, possibly gruesome if an extremely powerful metal bender could manipulate metal in the blood stream O_O

    Or possibly encase himself in metal.
