The Last Airbender: Total War V0.83 Released!

AV header

Welcome to the release of the new version (v0.83). After the release of V0.80 I got many requests and feedback to add and change things like better balancing regarding the economy and public order. Aside from the need for balancing I have added many new things such as more heroes, mercenaries, new buildings and ancillaries. Now parts of Book 1 are also incorpirated into the main campaign in the form of roleplay with ancillaries and traits. Want to find Momo? or kill the moon with the great admiral Zhao? It is possible. In future releases this will be expanded on much further. Various other things have been changed as well to improve stability, tanks now work and have spinning wheels. The catapults have been removed as they are still bugged and will be replaced with new ones further down the road.

or:

instead of:

../rome total war/alexander/avatar
