The Misty Palms Oasis is a small village located on the southwestern edge of the Si Wong Desert. Hosting a seedy cantina crowded with traders, soldiers, and wanderers of the Si Wong Desert, the Misty Palms Oasis garners significant traffic from a diverse crowd of mostly Earth Kingdom citizens. This is the final stop to rest and buy or trade anything before venturing into the desert. As such, travelers often stop in this village to stock up on supplies.[2]

History

Before the Hundred Year War, the Misty Palms Oasis was an icy, refreshing spring. However, as time passed, the spring gradually melted away and the oasis was converted into a rest stop.

Before making plans to find information about the Fire Nation, Team Avatar decided to take "mini-vacations". For hers, Katara chose to visit the Misty Palms Oasis, as it sounded refreshing. Aang stated that he had been to its "pristine natural ice spring" once before, commenting that it was "one of nature's wonders". However, much to their disappointment, the oasis had deteriorated into a state far less stimulating than it once was, with the ice spring having almost entirely melted away. Here, the group encountered Professor Zei before heading off into the desert in search of Wan Shi Tong's Library.[1]

Several days later, Zuko and Iroh met up with Fung inside the cantina and had a run-in with bounty hunter Xin Fu and earthbending instructor Master Yu. They were able to avoid capture by initiating a bar fight.[3]

Description

An outdated drawing of the Misty Palms Oasis preserves the image of a once bountiful spring.

The cantina's trademark is its selection of frozen beverages, served by its skilled bartender who dices fruit with dual katanas. The ice is carved from a subterranean iceberg just outside the pub at the center of the oasis, which for the most part is still preserved beneath the hot desert sand.[2] According to Avatar Aang, the iceberg was once one of the world's natural wonders, but after one hundred years, the iceberg became part of the surrounding cantina and was cut down due to the high demand for the frozen drinks.
