However you tell stories, the deck can help.

For writers.

Start writing faster. Jumpstart your creative process and make the most of your writing time.

Create your best ideas. Create story seeds packed with interesting characters, motivations, conflicts.

Enjoy the time you spend writing. The deck relieves creative paralysis and helps you enjoy the creative process through a balance of story structure and open-ended play.

For D&D and TTRPG players.

Make your game sessions more dynamic. Captivate your players with new stories, characters, items, settings, and more.

Pull the party into the heart of the story. Use our "locked card" mechanic to create campaign ideas and NPC motivations built around your players.

Be ready for anything your players throw at you. If your story goes off the rails, you can create new plots, NPCs, items, and settings on the fly.

For artists.

Create instant artistic ideas. Give yourself engaging ideas for scenes or character concepts within seconds.

Expand your artistic range. Break away from your usual habits and introduct new elements of story, setting, character, and motivation into your scenes and portraits.

Make each prompt your own. Every prompt contains multiple cues to choose between. Customize every prompt to fit your goals and style.

For teachers.

Engage your students. The deck introduces an element of student-led play that hooks students into writing as a creative activity.

Introduce the fundamentals of story. The five card types introduce essential story concepts like character, motivation, setting, conflict, and description.

Support your curriculum goals. We offer a free set of lesson plans for integrating the deck in your classroom.
