The story has key things that can't happen in the real world. (magic/sorcery)
Problems are normally solved with heroism or acts of kindness with a description of good or bad.
It is simple and often based around:
- a time schedule like birth, growth, death.
- the seasons.
- a hero's quest or journey.
The character's actions are normally based on traditions or prophesy instead of there own motivation.
