The Master Fantasy Plot Generator is a HTML5 application that is designed to be an aid to role players as well as writers. With of the click of a button you can have a basic campaign arc with a few supporting adventures which could also easily become a story outline.

As a HTML5 app it can be used on any computer, tablet or smart phone with a web browser as long as you can store files on the device. This package contains a zip file which contains a "MFPG" folder and within the folder is the webpage and supporting files. Simply unzip the file, move the folder where you want, and click on the webpage (html) file within the folder to launch the generator.

The format of the adventure arc takes a queue from screenwriting as well as pulp adventure novel writing. The overarching story of the arc is set in motion by a central villain who is trying to accomplish his schemes which are integrally tied to a location. To kick off the arc the players or the hero are pulled in by a hook. As the heroes go about trying to foil the nefarious schemes of the villain they will continue to encounter various supporting characters and thematic forces that may aid or oppose them.

The arc, the heart of the story, is based off of Lester Dent's "Master Fiction Plot" method for writing pulp action stories. There are four acts which continue to heap trouble upon the hero. The fourth act concludes with the climax where the hero confronts and overcomes the villain. This app represents the Master Plot by generating three supporting adventures - each with its own subplot, location, opposition, forces, complications and a twist. The fourth act is the resolution of the overarching plot which takes place at the focal location and involves the main villain.

If you don't like the plot the app allows you generate another one on the fly. You can also add more adventure legs into the arc, so you are not limited to three if you want a longer story or campaign. A sample short story arc (The Fall of Merkule) that is based upon a generated plot is included with the app to demonstrate how the generator may be used.

Please let us know if you have any issues - formatting, programmatic, etc - with the generator. We will patch and update the generator as required.

We are open to suggestions. Also, if you are a publisher and want to have a generator tailored to your campaign setting please contact us. Jteamwebdesign (at) gmail (dot) com

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
