Description Cards - Storytellers Deck - Environments Excerpt

Describing Landscapes

It’s important to give your audience (readers or fellow gamers) a sense of place. That is, a landscape they can identify with and/or visualize. The difficultly here is placing a feature, a moment or a mark on the landscape that's memorable and (more importantly) indigenous to the landscape. This is exactly what these cards provide--distinguishable moments, marks and features of the following landscapes:

  • Swamps Mountains Deserts/Plains and Forests
  • Thoughtful descriptions of sights smells, sounds and sensations from mountains, swamps, deserts and forests.

This storytelling tool:

  • ...offers writing examples to add depth and drama to your story.
  • for Tabletop Gamers and Gamemasters who wish to keep their landscapes fresh or give a special place a special identifying feature which the players will remember.
  • ...can tip your essay, blog, novel or gaming table from good to great!
  • ...allows you to flip through the cards at random to inspire new plot twists and dungeon features.
  • written for any genre.
  • system neutral and super flexible.
  • both a reference and a brainstorming tool.
  • chock-full of sights smells, sounds and sensations.
