Use time-tested story structures to create better adventures!

All great stories need a beginning, a middle, and an end. On that basic structure writers and storytellers throughout the ages have woven variations and created masterpieces. We keep coming back to the same foundations today for one very good reason: those structures are versatile and continue to work. This book helps you leverage basic story structure and use it to your advantage. Tell the story you want to tell while keeping your audience engaged. You’ll have new tools in your storytelling toolbox, along with the knowledge of how and when to use them in your own creative works. 

Designed for creative writers and tabletop roleplayers, with clear step-by-step instructions you can:

  • Utilize the traditional three-act structure
  • Learn what belongs in the beginning, middle, and end of your story
  • Cut down prep work by focusing on essential elements
  • Create a coherent, interconnected campaign or series of stories

Story Structure is system-agnostic and can be used with any game system, setting, or work of fiction.

Any plans for a POD version? :)

I bought Story Structure, but it seems there's less than half of what's promised in page 7 of the Full Size Preview "Using this Book".

On that page it says: "the major sections of this book are:
* The Three-Act Structure - actually PRESENT in the document
* The Three-Tiered Campaign - PRESENT
* Story Structures (How different types of stories provide variations on the three-act structure, required elements, templates) - MISSING
* Scenes (How to craft effective scenes, the elements necessary to the creation of those scenes are provided.) - MISSING
* Story Techniques - MISSING
* Conflicts (types, ways that they can be used for the main story, subplots, and character arcs) - MISSING
* Goals and Rewards - MISSING

Do I have the wrong version of the files?

That description was for an earlier playtest draft of the book. None of the material you describe is in the table of contents. The section on the three-tiered campaign in the version released is greatly expanded from what was originally announced, which would have increased the planned page length and increased the price point. A choice had to be made to either cut down the three-tiered campaign section, cut some of the less relevant material and save it for a future release, or increase the price. The campaign material was deemed to have more utility than the other sections. I apologize for any confusion.

Are those other topics covered in one of your other books? I'd be interested to read what you have to say.

The story structures have each been spun off into the STORY STRUCTURE series. 20 of them are planned, and at around 20 pages each you can see where that would have bloated this book. Most of them are out now, and the rest will be released over the first quarter of 2017. The other sections will likewise be expanded into separate books, which are planned for 2017 and 2018.

Original electronic
Livres Scannés
Ces livres électroniques ont été créés physiquement en scannant les originaux et en utilisant les images obtenues pour faire les pages pdf. Chaque page est passée par un programme de reconnaissance optique ces caractères (OCR) afin d'essayer de déchiffrer le texte imprimé. Le résultat de ce procédé OCR est situé de manière invisible derrière l'image de chaque page scannée, pour permettre d'utiliser des recherches de texte. Cependant, un texte dans un livre donné sur un fond graphique ou avec des fontes manuelles ne sera probablement pas reconnu par le programme OCR, et ne sera donc pas pris en compte dans les recherches. Aussi certains livres imposants peuvent être redimensionnés pour correspondre au système, et peuvent ne pas avoir cette fonctionnalité de recherche de texte. La plupart des livres les plus vieux et en rupture d'impression sont dans le format images scannées.
Format électronique original
Ces livres électroniques ont été créé à partir des versions électroniques, et permettent donc d'utiliser pleinement la fonction recherche. De plus, la taille de leur fichier tend à être plus petite que celle des livres scannés. La plupart des livres récents sont dans le format électronique original.
