Production History

Foundations of Stone promotional poster

Promotional material for the "Foundations of Stone" season finale.

Avatar: The Legend of Teru was inspired by many pieces of fan-fiction works on Avatar Wiki, in particular, Avatar: Wanted, the first Avatar fan-fiction read by creator Rassilon of Old. Taking inspiration from television series such as Doctor Who, it was decided that the Avatar origin series was to be released in serials.

Shortly after the first chapter (doubled as prologue and Christmas Special) was released on Christmas Day 2010. Due to the creator's complete lack of time management skills, the series was heavily affected. Each chapter's release date began to stretch from weeks, to months, and as a result, the series was cancelled and reduced to a mini-series of just five chapters. The final two chapters in Foundations of Stone were expected for release in September 2011.

After months of hiatus and no progress made on the serial finale, Rassilon of Old began work on the series again as a past time and form of "constructive procrastination". The final two chapters in Foundations of Stone are currently in writing stage, with a following serial, The Apparition Arch, currently in production. The Foundations of Stone finale will be released sometime in February 2012.
