Greatest idea ever!


Gamer Talk


Kung Fu Panda meets Avatar the Last Airbender = legen...wait for it...dary! Just think of it anthropomorphic animals doing kung fu elemntal bending styles. PLEASE NO APPLAUDS (applaud loudly) I know greatest idea ever!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Are the animals going to be seperated in their different styles of bending?

Salamander = Fire Bending
Crane = Air Bending
Snake = Earth Bending (Special ability: Poison Bending)

Oooh, Or they can all bend but have special abilities (Such as Blood bending, Lightning, Steel, etc) based on their race O.O


No no no don't make bending racially dependent. That way anyone can play any animal they want as long as it is on the chinese zodiac. The combos can be fun, and or silly. Also not every animal has to be a bender. They could be other asian themed classes or classes that work in that area...thoughts?


Ok, using the twelve zodiacs as races and then incorporate the five elements as classes. Should be simple enough.

There are several very well done websites I found just searching real quick on google with bender classes 3.5 style. they could be easily upgraded to pathfinder by speeding up what they get. pathfinder seems to get bonuses faster than 3.5.

I mentioned a couple years ago to a friend that I had never seen Avatar but kinda wanted to, maybe.

He asked if I had remembered the crap-bag movie, Dances With Wolves and I said, "Of course I remember."

And he said that I'd seen Avatar then. Just without the special effects.

So glad I didn't waste any time watching it since I'd seen the early 90s version.

I had a 5 minute conversation on the bus once about Avatar with someone before we figured out we were talking about totally different Avatars. He was really surprised to hear that there was a (much better) tv version, and I was surprised that there was lots of linguistics in the world building that I hadn't even noticed. :P

Anyway, re: zodiac animals, the cat is also an option—it replaces the rabbit in the Vietnamese version of the zodiac. I somehow imagine cats as water benders, striving to keep the hated substance away from themselves.


All I can picture is a rooster earth-bender.

He wakes you up by flipping your house over.


I'm thinking like turtles or tortoises or reptiles for dragons. My idea would be to essentially use a human template on the animal. Then if you wanted to be a bender as a group choose one of the pdfs above.

Oh, I see what you did there

Personally, I would play a Sheep Fire/Lightning bender. It sounds freaking awesome.
