About the Card
In every great story, the Hero must face external conflict - a challenge that arises from an outside source, whether it be a person, a group, or a force of nature. This external conflict often serves as a catalyst for the Hero's journey, forcing them to leave their Ordinary World and embark on a quest for resolution. The external conflict can take many forms, such as a battle against a physical enemy, a struggle for survival in the wilderness, or a race against time to prevent a disaster. Regardless of the form it takes, the external conflict requires the Hero to demonstrate courage, strength, and resilience.
