Avatar: The Last Airbender
Nearly a decade ago, Avatar Aang, Katara and Sokka of the Southern Water Tribe, Toph Beifong of the Earth Kingdom, Fire Lord Zuko of the Fire Nation, and Suki the Kyoshi Warrior, successfully ended the century-long war between the Fire Nation and the Earth Kingdom. Withthe defeat of Fire Lord Ozai, peace was established at long last throughout the world. However, with the Avatar now missing, tensions between the Fire Nation and Earth Kingdom growing, and non-benders growing increasingly hostile to their fellow bender citizens; the world teeters closer to war after what feels like only a mere moment of peace. Called by Avatar Aang’s wife, Katara, delegates take the role of representatives from the varying nations to address the crisis that the Avatar’s disappearance has thrown the world in to. Will you be able to successfully dissuade a conflict between the nations? Or, will the world be once again faced with war? It is up to the delegates to decide the fate of the nations. The Last Airbender did not ignore his call to restore balance, will you?
This committee is advanced and will be run at a faster pace; it is recommended that inexperienced delegates do not participate.
