What chance can mere mortals have against a force from beyond? Letthe special effects begin. lly Goin~ on tlere? Players and characters both like to feel that they make a difference, like they're actually going out and saving something or keeping a specific person safe. Dramatic roles, capable characters - such things make a game worth playing. However, occasionally reminding characters and players that there are greater powers and plots out there than themselves has great dramatic impact. Even though they have the power to shape reality at will, the characters aren't always as pivotal as they might like to believe.

You don't have to look any more. '" Everyone knows how movies go. There's a Movie Plot Handbook out there and there are only about 25 basic plots and a few subplots in it. So when you start a movie you can usually figure out what kind of story it's going to tell within the first half-hour - if not the first 10 minutes. There are patterns called genre conventions. They create rhythms in a story and they complicate the plot. You know what they are, even if you've never really thought about them before: in comedy, the unsuspecting twins who happen to end up in the same city; in horror, the pretty student who goes down to the cellar to investigate noises; in mystery, the smoking gun that bears the fingerprints of a variety of suspects.

Simple:Keep it human. A major crisis or two is fine. An earthshaking plot can be fun. Even a little Pulp Fiction-style violencecan make for an entertaining session. But most eventsshould occur on a more subtle level, even in Dark Adventure. Between universe-shattering dangers, stage more "manageable"events - saving a hardcase kid from the streetsor making a significant personal discovery that forcesthe character to re-evaluate his place in the world. Keepthe posturing to a minimum; strive for subtlety over the preposterous.
