The Periodic Table of Storytelling

Screen Shot 2014-09-23 at 2.07.00 PM

This site provides links to the breakdowns of various storytelling tropes: story structures, plot devices, character types, etc. On each of the character trope wiki articles, there’s very descriptive breakdowns of the rules/expectations of those characters. It also comes complete with examples in film, literature, manga, animation, etc. It’s a very comprehensive wiki.

I’ll definitely be using this moving forward for characterizations! Looking forward to this!
