Who knew Air Elementalists could be so kick ass?

One of my oldest and most beloved AD&D characters was Mister Wu. Mister Wu was a Wu-Jen Fire Elementalist. Back in my RPGA days I played him in all the "Living city" tournaments in Hawaii. I always figured Fire Elementalist was the way to go (with Earth Elementalist a close second). But after watching Avatar: The Last Airbender, playing an Air Elementalist is looking kinda cool.

While I'm not a fan of the Anime style of animation, I have been pleasantly surprised by the animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender. I caught an episode the other night on Nickelodean and got hooked. since it's now in it's third season I had some catch up to do. I tracked down the first season and have been watching it with the minions. It's a great story, awesome premise, involved characters, yet it's at times goofy like a kids show should be. It's good family fun and gamers will relate to it from the opening credits.
Oh and it features one of Mako's final roles before his death, which is a +5 to the geek coolness factor right there.

Ok I will not make a snap decision on the long awaited Dragonlance movie. But I will say that I'm not liking the mixing of CGI and animation that this one is showing on the trailer. Being a gamer I've gotta wish it the best. fingers crossed.
