    The Legend of Korra takes place 70 years after the events of Avatar: The Last Airbender and follows the adventures of the Avatar after Aang – a passionate, rebellious, and fearless teenaged girl from the Southern Water Tribe named Korra. With three of the four elements under her belt (Earth, Water, and Fire), Korra seeks to master the final element, Air. Her quest leads her to the epicenter of the modern “Avatar” world, Republic City – a metropolis that is fueled by steampunk technology. It is a virtual melting pot where benders and non-benders from all nations live and thrive. However, Korra discovers that Republic City is plagued by crime as well as a growing anti-bending revolution that threatens to rip it apart. Under the tutelage of Aang’s son, Tenzin, Korra begins her airbending training while dealing with the dangers at large.
    The title "The Legend of Korra" is a working title and may change.

    Oh, like the inclusion of "steampunk" I am seeing that a lot in urban fantasy and paranormal books and see it being the start of a trend just like vamps and werewolves were a couple of years ago.

    Steampunk | Define Steampunk at Dictionary.com

    Main Entry: steampunk
    Part of Speech: n
    Definition: a genre of science fiction set in Victorian times when steam was the main source of machine power; also written steam-punk
    The movie Steamboy (2004) is a great example of steampunk also spelled steam punk.

    Another good definition:

    The Best Steampunk Movies

    Steampunk movies are films set in a past era (or in a world resembling the past), in which technological discoveries occurred earlier in history than they really did and were accomplished using the science already present in that time period.

    Much of steampunk is set in Victorian-era settings, in a world where steam power and clockwork is the norm.

    That's a pretty general description of what it's all about, as "Steampunk" means different things to different people and encompasses a wide scope including literature, art, design, fashion and even a whole "lifestyle" subculture.

    Although originally conceived as being Victorian-era science fiction only, the term "steampunk" has become common use for many related forms of "speculative fiction" set in the pre-Electric age.
    What Is Steampunk?

    Steampunk = a "retro-futuristic" genre of fiction/fantasy featuring wildly imagined inventions and anachronistic technology

    I forgot I had created a Legend of Korra thread and had been posting comments about Avatar: The Legend of Korra on the Avatar: The Last Airbender. All the posts about Korra are now on the correct Legend of Korra thread.
