About the Card
The Rising Action is the part of the story where the stakes increase and the tension builds. The Hero has accepted their quest and is actively pursuing their goal, but the journey is far from easy. They may face obstacles, enemies, and setbacks that test their resolve and challenge them to grow even stronger. Each challenge they face raises the stakes and brings them closer to the climax of the story. The Rising Action is crucial to the overall narrative as it keeps the reader engaged and invested in the outcome of the story. Without it, the climax would lack the emotional impact necessary to satisfy the reader's investment in the Hero's journey.
