Would anyone be interested in a free form role play set in the world of The Last Airbender or one similar to it?

I certainly would, so long as you're referring to the show over the movie!

Absolutely, I'm pretty sure that movie is objectively terrible.

Alright, so I like the idea of the story taking place during the 100 years Aang spent in the iceberg. Also I think it would be cool if we started in Ba Sing Se, and we could have a murder investigation or maybe play with some noir themes. But what do you guys think?

You can and it would basically be a detective game set in the Avatar-verse. However it might limit our options somewhat since during that time no one trusts a firebender (remember how Zuko was treated once he used his firebending?) and the Water Tribes are largely under siege or relatively isolationist. The Airbenders are also gone so it's just earth benders. In universe the police force of Ba Sing Se ultimately end at the Dai Li; we could play the local beat cops versus the more morally shady federal agents but during that time frame the Dai Li would be immensely powerful and corrupt. They would easily stymie any investigation they are displeased with and our characters would be at risk of being arrested as "subversive elements". Might make for an interesting game theme but I am unsure if that is what everyone wants out of an Avatar-verse game.

I like the idea of an Avatar game, but I agree that the time period is pretty limiting.  PCs are effectively limited to Earth Benders or normals (even if a Fire Bender was allowed, it would make social situations effectively near impossible).  That's kind of limiting on the concept and team structure right there.

It also takes away a lot of the flexibility of things discovered during the Avatar series.  There isn't any Metal Bending (Toph discovered it), Blood Bending is a secret held by Hama in a Fire Nation prison, and of course the Air Benders are gone.

I'd suggest moving the setting to either post-Korra (if you've seen and liked the series) or move it some time after Avatar and declare Korra to not have happened in your universe to maintain flexibility.

Very interested. I'm probably unimaginative but I don't know where a post-Korra adventure would go, although I must admit it could be easily set in the time after she walks through the portal, since the avatar has effectively left the world to itself while she is on holiday.  Or alternatively, it could be set in the period when she was in recuperation.
Post-aang and the founding of republic city may also work, but we would have to ignore the comics. Also, everything Briel suggested.

I regret to inform you that I will not be running this game. I simply lost interest in running it and have decided to run a solo Mage game with another forum frequenter.
