Plotbuilder is designed to help you create story arcs for any purpose, whether you’re a role player, a writer, into theatre sports, or something else entirely. Setting agnostic, the cards are able to quickly generate plot frameworks regardless of period, style or background specifics.

Each deck has 72 cards, comprising six categories of twelve options each. Along with your pledges you will receive a high quality PDF of the cards to do what you want with. Get a 12-sided die and you can generate plots that way too.

Usable at any stage of story telling, from a blank page to on-the-fly development, the Plotbuilder deck can be targeted as required. Need the primary driving force for a character? Draw a Motive card. What about a victim for the antagonist to pick on? Draw a Character card. How about a plot bubbling in the background that the protagonist might bump into? Go the whole hog and do an entire Plotbuilder story!

Millions of plot combinations can be made with the Plotbuilder deck by drawing just one card from each deck, but many cards instruct you to draw more. You won’t have the same story twice!



Plotbuilder cards are definitely useful for all writing styles, for anyone who has ever been stuck developing a plot. This can be used in any setting or genre needed, the cards work for fantasy/ historical, modern and scifi.  Also good for writers block, to help get those ideas flowing again.
