In order to create consistency among all the cards, we need a generalized story format which includes The Hero's Journey story arc and Elemental characteristics.

The Hero's Journey

    • character background
  • Call to action
    • something forces the character to leave on an adventure
  • Tension

The Hero's Journey in this case should be written from the perspective of the Haunted Spider.

  • Confident
