Horror Stories (Genre Structure Vol. 1) helps you to develop and tell frightful tales of dread and darkness. It is an essential sourcebook for creating fiction and tabletop adventures. A sampling of short horror stories is provided. These stories can be deconstructed by you using the methods discussed previously in this book. Mine the stories for ideas, remixing, reimagining, and presenting the ideas in new and original ways.Written for writers and roleplayers, with clear step-by-step instructions, you can:

  • Determine which horror genre elements you wish to include in your story
  • Work with a variety plot types to create a story that is unique and original to you
  • Structure a scary beginning, middle, and end to your tale
  • Deconstruct existing stories to remix and reimagine elements for use in your own story

Premise: Horror – 100 Plot Ideas A premise is the heart of a story summed up in a single sentence. It should provide a general overview of what happens, without spoiling anything. A good premise contains, explicitly or by implication, four key elements of the story: who the protagonists are, what the goal of the story is, the sorts of obstacles that need to be overcome in order to achieve the story goal, and who the antagonist is.

Each premise provided in this book is more than just a story hook or adventure seed. It is the beginning of a story, your story, that you can flesh out and develop to suit your specific needs. These can be used again and again by varying the details, changing the four key elements, and altering details like locations, themes, and the rewards and complications that stem from whether or not the protagonists can achieve the story goal.

Story Design: Curse Stories covers all of the elements you need to prepare in order to tell a metamorphosis story. It’s based on concepts explored in Story Structure for Writers and Roleplayers, also published by Dancing Light Press.  It’s a big book that goes into greater detail on how to get the most out of the three-act structure, as well as developing a three-phase series (campaign, if you prefer) with a clear beginning, middle, and end. If you want to use your favorite roleplaying game system to tell stories with more depth than kill monster, get treasure, repeat (not that there’s anything wrong with that), it is worth looking into.

Story Design: Mystery Stories covers all of the elements you need to prepare in order to tell a question-driven story.
