The Art of Bending
Bending is a -10% modifier. It encompasses environmental effects, exotic countermeasures, and the need to perform gestures (-6 to for any use without body wide gestures). Rolls to bend may be made against a Meditation (plus talent) instead of IQ (plus talent).

Meditation may be taken as an optional specialization of Bending at an average skill. As a specialized skill it can only be used for Bending.

Abilities marked with an asterisk (*) may be not be purchased at a level higher than Mediation + Talent - 10 (Binding and TK may be five times this). Abilities marked with a double asterisk (**) cannot be higher than Mediation + Talent -15.

Any of the advantages under each style's advantage list may be taken as an alternate ability to the most expensive bending advantage. All the normal ready rules apply and only a ready ability may be used for an active defense.

Attacks that are blockable (-10%) may be blocked or parried with no modifier to parry. If the target fails a bare hand parry the attack may be taken against the parrying limb instead of the original target (as normal).

Control, DR, and Innate Attack may make defenses based Meditation (if higher). If the DR has the Active Defense limitation it can only Power Block with an AoD. Control provides DR 2 per level using a Power Block.

Cinematic skills included in each style seem to fit the world. They should be allowed with a Unusual Training perk.

I haven't bothered to calculate style costs, but it would be one point for style familiarity (perk), one point in each primary skill, at least one level of talent, and at least one level of the primary advantage.

Anyway, tell me what you think...

Air Bending (Aerokinesis)
(Loosely based on Pakua, but tailored for Aang's training).

Tactics: Gate guards stand atop the stone gates and use their bending to open and close the gates. They generally work in teams of 4+ depending on the size of the gate. Offensively they can work large amount of earth, but only close up. They can perform a ripple slam doing 3d with a move of 3, create a -3 penalty to those within 3 yards, or drop 90lb rocks on those below.

Attributes 5 + Advantages 7 + Earth Bending 54 - Disadvantages 7 + Skills 6 = Total 65 points.

Skills: Innate Attack (Projectile)-14 (DX+2+Talent) [4]; Karate-12 (DX+1) [8]; Meditation (Earth)-13 (Will+Talent) [4]; Soldier-10 (IQ) [2];

Tactics: Earth bender soldiers stand their ground. They prefer to wait, evaluate, and aim before attacking. At a range they rely on their 2d crushing attack (throwing a chunk of rock!). Up close earth benders typically with either a bare or stone covered hand. Earth benders do not retreat (for a defense bonus) without routing, though they often use a defensive stance.

Attributes 29 + Advantages 7 + Earth Bending 13 - Disadvantages 7 + Skills 18 = Total 60 points.

Tactics: Captains do slightly more damage with greater skill than soldiers using the same tactics. Captains also have the ability to create stone barriers which can help direct battles and provide necessary cover. Many captains use an Earth Hammer (sw+1 cr, not unbalanced) instead of fighting bare handed though it's more symbolic.

Attributes 56 + Advantages 8 + Earth Bending 77 - Disadvantages 7 + Skills 23 = Total 157 points.

Earth Hammer. This small blocky iron hammer (Axe/Mace, Sw Cr+1, MinST 11, 6 lbs) is the signature weapon of Earth kingdom warriors. Benders that can wield them typically choke up on the handle and wield them as small balanced weapons (using smallsword). Wielded individually or in pairs, these weapons are often used to parry heavy (rocks!) or damaging (fire!) attacks that a broadsword could not.

Dai Li (Earth Kingdom Secret Police)
ST 10 [0] DX 11 [20] IQ 10 [0] Will 11 [5] HT 10 [0]

Skills: Karate-12 (DX+1) [8]; Meditation (Earth)-13 (Will+1+Talent) [4]; Philosophy (Dai Li)-8 (IQ-2) [1]; Stealth-12 (DX+1) [4].

Tactics: Dai Li agents prefer creeping (clinging and stealth) then striking at a distance with a stone fist.

Attributes 25 + Advantages 7 + Earth Bending 42 - Disadvantages 22 + Skills 17 = Total 69 points.

Stone Fist. Dai Li agents practice manipulating a 10 lb stone fist until it becomes an extension of their arm. While active, it's used at a ST 12 (Th 1d-1 Sw 1d+2) Move 12 ST12 and can do anything the Dai Li could do including grapple and punch (1d+1 cr) though it cannot move farther than 10 yard away from the agent. It can also be hurled (TK throw) for 1d-1 cr damage up to 12 yards.

I saw the thread title and thought "I'd do it as a set of powers." And what's the first thing I see? You did it as a set of powers. AND as a set of martial arts.

Amazing. Enlightening. So very appropriate.

I heartily approve. You should archive that!

I've been meaning to do this as soon as I had the books. Now I don't have to, as I doubt I could improve upon your writeups.

Update: I've watched to where they have met the Earth King. I'll probably see the remainder of season 2 sometime this week (after which I'll doubtlessness need more updates). I'm open to any criticism though.

Update: I've created a number of citizen templates. I started stating out some master, but I realized that they weren't going to fit a generic mold. Every master in the show has a different area of expertise so they would better as one-off characters. I figure I can start adding NPCs.

At 50-60 points, the low end templates make good fodder or good starting points. I figure most entry PCs will be 150+ points and the guys that I've stated in that range tend to be reasonably cool.

Er, Ba Gua maybe? MA has it listed under the name Pakua - ba gua being the pinyin translation. It's on page 187.

Missed that.

EDIT: More closely based on Ba Gua plus most of Quarterstaff. Made a few alternations:
-Acrobatics because it fits and Aang uses Acrobatic Stand.
-Attack from Above and Breakfall because they are natural leapers/fliers.
-Perks to balance against other bending styles. The existing one didn't fit this campaign and the other styles have similar amounts.
