Magpie Games is excited to bring you Avatar Legends: The Roleplaying Game, the officially licensed tabletop roleplaying game set in the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra!
Avatar Legends: The RPG is a heroic fantasy game set in the universe of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra in which you and your friends take on the role of young heroes from across the Four Nations who have joined together to make the world a better place. It’s a game for people of all ages who want to look at the world beyond. The scope of the existing stories and explore the meaningful actions heroes take for the good of others.
Above all, however, it’s a game about balance. Your hero fights for balance in the world, but also wrestles with maintaining balance within while trying to achieve the goals they’ve set for themselves. The villains of Avatar Legends: The RPG are never simply monsters, never mere antagonists who must be struck down by blasts of fire; they are instead people with their own desires, personal struggles, and goals, no matter how misguided.
Thus, achieving true balance isn’t easy. Whether you play a bender, martial artist, merchant, or craftsperson, you’re constantly being pulled between two important principles in your life as you face problems in the world. If you delve too deeply into one or the other forgiveness over action, force over care, tradition over progress. It throws you off-balance, and you must work to regain your composure and sense of self.
Luckily, you’re not alone in this journey. Together with your fellow heroes, you’ll soar on the backs of flying bison, defeat devious foes, and discover the true meaning of balance. Perhaps even help to save the world!
In Avatar Legends: The RPG you play one of the many heroes of the Four Nations—or perhaps Republic City or the Fire Nation colonies—a young hero who has sworn to protect the world from harmful threats and stand up for those without the power to stand up for themselves. You fight on the side of what is right. Even if that is the most difficult path to take. And you understand that to achieve peace there must be balance.
No matter what type of character you decide to play. A bender, martial artist, or technological savant—your character is integral to the story you’re playing. Each character has strengths that complement the others and everyone has something valuable to add each session.
The life of an Avatar Legends hero is never easy. There’s always someone who needs to be smuggled out of Republic City. A stolen artifact that must be recovered for the Southern Water Tribe. Or a new warlord terrorizing the good people of the Earth Kingdom. Every adventure is a new story waiting to happen, and the stories of Avatar Legends: The RPG need heroes just like you!
But most problems you’ll encounter in the Four Nations can’t be fixed by a simple fight. The Avatarverse and the people who live there are too complex for that. You might have to investigate the problem. Speak to people about their needs, and strive to understand the nuances of the situation at hand. Embracing the diversity of the Four Nations and learning to accept others who may not share your world views are all part of the heroism central to the game.
But if it does come down to a fight. When you’ve tried every possibility and the villain you’re facing refuses to let go of their tyrannical ways—you’ll be ready. Armed with a customized mech suit you’ve built. With a skillfully forged spear or powerful firebending, your heroes will utilize their training to win the day. And if you don’t win then you and your friends will have to pull yourselves together. You need to recover from your defeat, learn new skills and techniques, and come back stronger than you were before!
