Hey all, pleased to meet you, looking forward to roleplaying here, yadda yadda, the usual salutations and felicitations.
I'm KartoffelFogel (that's German for Potato Bird) and the story behind that peculiar username is both long and boring. Most people just call me "Kart." I'm a seasoned roleplayer, although never before have I found a site this active. I can tell I'm going to have a lot of backstory and reading to catch up on. And despite my German name, make no mistake--I'm Filipino, not German. I just happen to speak German. I'm actually quadrilingual--I'm conversational in English, German, Tagalog, and Spanish.
I've been a fan of Avatar since the first episode of The Last Airbender, all the way to the season finale of The Legend of Korra. I've always had a special place in my heart for Earthbending (and the Mantis-style Shaolin it originated from). I'm a martial artist as well as an Avatar fan, and I like catching the little nuances of each bending art. My previous experience with martial arts includes Taijiquan (aka Tai Chi, the art that Waterbending is based on), Wing Chun, Arnis, and Aikido.
I look forward to diving headfirst into this Avatar roleplay!
