Okay — we're all ready for the Legend of Korra to come out, and as we all know, that day couldn't come soon enough. Last night I had this idea, and I think you guys might just like it. Maybe it will help pass the time, somewhat.
Firstly, you should know that this idea is completely a derivative of an online game called akinator. Akinator is a basically a 20 questions game that can identify just about anyone who is well known. For some reason, I thought about hosting an Avatar version of this game, but then I wondered, how?
How it Works (General)
After thinking about it for a while, I thought of the answer. Each question will we a yes or no answer. First you must think of a character in your head, and answer questions in the way that would describe that character, just like 20 questions. The first question will have many possibilities (all of the Avatar characters, major and minor). The second question will have half as many possible answers, as the first question will be, "Is this character male or female?".
How it Works (Advanced)
Each question will be a collapsible table. The question will be asked, and then you'll see a "Yes" and a "No" tab underneath. You click the "show" next to each option, and another question will be shown. Each question will narrow down the possibilities, until there are only two possible answers. The last question will determine which of the two characters you were thinking of.
Throughout the next few days, I'll be hard at working putting together this game. For now, it will only be Book One characters, and later it will be expanded into Book Two, and later Book Three. Someday, I plan to expand it until the game includes more than characters, but that will certainly be farther down the road.
The game will at first be in a blog post, and after a day or two it will be available to play in my userspace. I will be using Sandbox A for my testing, so go ahead and check out my progress, but don't expect for it work completely in the testing phase.
Hopefully you guys like the idea, it should be pretty fun once I'm finished with it.
