Welcome to the frequently asked questions for The Elementals
____________________

HOW DO I ROLEPLAY?

Click "Roleplay Area" on "The Elementals" page. Now decide where you want to roleplay. For example, want to roleplay in the WaterClan Camp? Then click "WaterClan Camp" on the forums. Once there click "create topic", from here you can title your roleplay and type your post in the blank area. ALWAYS COPY YOUR POSTS! Webs is notorious for eating them.


HOW DO I FIND A ROLEPLAY PARTNER?

You can ask right! In the boxes, through private message, skype, deviantArt notes, don't be shy to ask! You can also post HERE to find a roleplay partner or if you're looking for people to take part in a mini plot.


HOW DO I BEND?

Humans bend through their body movements, mostly arms/legs. Unfortunately because cats are four legged animals it would be extremely hard, if not impossible, to replicate how the humans bend. Because of this we let YOU decide how you want to bend your element, the only thing you're not allowed to do is mind-control your element (unless stated otherwise). Using simple to heavy movements however you want can control your element. We feel as though if we made a lot of rules / guidelines to how to bend, it might be confusing and complicated for members. Because we want you guys to have fun and for it to be easy, we leave it up to you! For example, your cat could flick their tail and send a water whip towards your target. Be creative! (continued through next question)


HOW DO I FIGHT?

Imagine the fighting like Pokemon. When a fire Pokemon uses a fire attack on an earth pokemon, it doesn't actually burn them up and kill them. This roleplay is similar to that. For example if a firebender cat used fire whip on an opponent, the opponent doesn't actually catch on fire, burn up and die. Keep in mind, they can set objects on fire, but their attacks would not set a flame to other benders. Attacks do harm one another, in a manner that it drains energy and causes physical pain, depending on the attack. The way your character performs the skills / bends their element is personal preference, however they do not and should never say the name of the attack to perform it. The most proper way for a character to bend an element in The Elementals is to gather strength to conjure / perform their attack. This can be done through thought, movement, emotion and by gathering all their inner strength through standing still. Like stated above, how you bend is your personal preference.


HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO WINS A FIGHT?

Roleplayers are to decide when their character's energy is so far drained they can no longer function, preventing them from further attacking. Please be respectful of each other when fighting, and don't be too unrealistic with how much your character can handle, it's alright to lose. Also keep in mind, superiors by default are stronger than subordinates. A warrior wouldn't stand much of a chance against a leader. There is one exception to this however, for example if the leader is completely drained of energy and/or beaten down, in this case the warrior could be stronger. Older characters are also most likely to be stronger than younger characters (with the exception of retired cats / cats without powers). The older they get, the better they are at bending and mastering skills.


CAN I JUST SPAM DEFENSIVE ATTACKS TO WIN?

No! If you're constantly only using defensive attacks, this is not fun and not very fair. AirClan is an exception to this, they rely on being evasive however be fair with it. If you use a defensive skill like Fire shield, as soon as the shield serves its purpose it would disappear. Your character cannot constantly have a defense system up.


CAN I SPAM ONE STRONG ATTACK TO WIN?

No! Strong attacks require a lot of energy, by constantly using one your character would become very tired and drained of energy fast. Be creative with your fighting.


HOW DO I JOIN?

Please read through the Join page!


CAN MY CHARACTER BEND MULTIPLE ELEMENTS?

Unfortunately no. Only the Avatar will be able to bend multiple elements. Right now there is no Avatar, we will be picking someone deserving of the role in the future!


CAN I BE A ROGUE / LONER?

As of right now we don't offer rogue or loner roleplay! Maybe down the road.


WHERE IS EARTHCLAN AND FIRECLAN?

Right now The Elementals is in a test run to see if it can be active enough. If it proves to be active and people enjoy it we will add FireClan and EarthClan! Until then we have WaterClan and AirClan to roleplay in!
