CHAPTER ONE: GANGS IN GAIPAN Part 2: The Bandit in the Wilds
Gaipan's heroes find a secret in the Spirit Wilds...

Zhi-Yuan's retaliation has come, and hits hard. However, our heroes manage to fight them off, with rock walls and some flying, flaming, ostrichhorse dung. The time has come to take the fight to them.

The five kids travel to Wildguard, Zhi-Yuan's fortress built among the eaves of the Spirit Wilds. Undaunted by the rumors and legends of the notorious jungle, our heroes use scary noises and cunning theatrics to send the bandit guards running for the hills. As they do so, they spot Zhi-Yuan and his earthbending lieutenants making a run for it through the jungle. They follow in hot pursuit.

With the help of Junzo's powerful spirit sense, they track the bandit and his lackeys through the jungle, evading a spirit bat menace that tries to make them into a meal. They find the Bandit Lord in the ruins of a large stadium. They give battle in spectacular fashion, defeating Zhi-Yuan's henchmen and holding their own against the bandit earthbender himself.

In an act of desperation, Zhi-Yuan touches a mystical tree in the center of the stadium. He vanishes, banished to the Spirit World. Then, Ona feels prompted to touch the tree, and absorbs some kind of powerful force from within the tree. She falls unconscious, and the rest of the team take her back to Wildguard. While there, Ona receives a strange vision, and accidentally reveals that she has the ability to earthbend.

Questions abound as to what new powers Ona may have acquired, and what enemies this power will create. Has Ona become the long-forgotten Avatar?

CHAPTER ONE: GANGS IN GAIPAN Part 1: The Bandit's Tax
Five kids discover a small town's desperate plight...

The town of Gaipan has fallen on hard times. The Bandit Lord, Zhi-Yuan, has moved into the area, and has set up a system of taxation on the town. Basically, if you don't pay me tribute, my bandits destroy your town. That kind of taxation.

Meanwhile, five young travelers visit the town of Gaipan from separate journeys. They come for different reasons, but all become involved in the goings on in town when a young boy approaches them for help. Through his mother, they learn of the town's current situation and Governor Shen's need for aid. They have arrived in the nick of time, it seems, when Zhi-Yuan's thugs arrive in town to collect their "tax".

The kids, however, are more than they appear. The two brothers, Tora and Junzo, are firebenders from Fire Nation aristocracy. Kalden, the traveling bard, is an airbender and nomad. Kodama is an earthbender from the big city, Ba Sing Se, to the east. And finally Ona, a waterbender and healer from the north. Together, they are more than a match for the thugs.

The team scares them off, but soon realize that more bandits will come in retaliation. They prepare to defend the town against the brigands, but what can five kids do to stop the Bandit Lord of Gaipan?
