Using a stage play metaphor, the Epic Adventure provides a format for role-playing adventures which maximizes the use of available material and maximizes the participation of the game master.
In 4 Acts, most of 5 Scenes (more or less), the Players encounter a variety of facts and circumstances which ultimately lead them to a resolution.
Each Act typically occurs in sequence, but the Scenes within an Act can occur in any order. When all Scenes in an Act been completed, the Scenes in the next act become available. When all Acts have been completed, the stage is set for the Climax, which resolves the situation.
