Water. Earth. Fire. Air.
Long ago, the four Nations lived together in harmony.
Then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.
Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them, but when the world needed him most, he vanished.
A hundred years passed and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar, an Airbender named Aang. And although his Airbending skills are great, he still has a lot to learn before he's ready to save anyone.
But I believe Aang can save the world.
As the Day of Black Sun approaches, the Avatar and those who travel with him have left the Earth Kingdom Capital of Ba Sing Se in the hands of the Earth King and his Council of Five in order to go train themselves for the coming battle. Unknown to them, the Fire Nation Princess Azula and her followers have learned of the invasion plans and infiltrated the capital in an attempt to stop the attack before it starts. The city of Ba Sing Se must not fall in order for the Earth Kingdom to be able to rally it's army in time to deal the Fire Nation it's death blow.

After vote close, B dies because he had achieved the vote total (5) before either of the other two. Simultaneous achievement of a tie (The removal of one vote on one player and the addition of one vote to another bringing them to a tie for first place) will result in both top players as well as the person who caused the tie
