This set of oversized cards is designed to help writers outline or draft novels, screenplays, and other long-form fiction.
The Shine Storytelling Engine is a flexible system that provides a backbone to a story without forcing writers into rigid and uncomfortable story structures. The system focuses on common human patterns that readers will respond to. You as the author decides which card (each with a common human or storytelling pattern) you want to use, then prompt you with a series of questions to answer. Use Radiance to outline your novel concept or use it as you write your first draft!
When combined with The Radiance Adventure Engine, a writer can roleplay while they write their manuscript! This type of experience is sometimes referred to as a journaling game - or, as we call it, roleplay & write mode.
By utilizing The Shine Storytelling Engine to outline their work, and then Radiance to play out the scenes within the larger story, writers can deepen their enjoyment of writing. Alternatively, you can simply use Radiance’s story, path, and detail cards to prompts your creativity as you use Shine to create your work of fiction.
