Why We Write Stories. Check out part 1 and part 2. The Quest is a search for a place, item, or person that requires the hero to leave home in order to find it. Either way, the hero is leaving home to find whatever the heck the story demands, and we get to come along for the ride. The rest of the party generally takes one of four appearances: Kickstarts the plot and gives the hero and the rest of the party a mission to accomplish.
The Journey Obviously our heroes are not going to get to their end goal that easily. Most of the journey is over enemy territory or hostile land, and obstacles pop up left and right, like dandelions in the spring.
Amid these tests come periods of rest where the party can regain their strength or count the bodies, if the party is the third type.
Our heroes can see the Emerald City! Our heroes still have some work to do before they actually complete their Quest. The Final Ordeals Now come the final tests of our heroes. Often these come in sets of three, like in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
Usually our main hero is the only one who can complete the final test. And then our intrepid band of heroes or just one hero, in case everyone else is dead makes an amazing escape from death, either by running away or by killing whatever bad guys are left. By varying the elements of the Quest story, the plot type can still stay fresh.
