This category of Storytelling Elements is populated with the motivations your characters may have to do the things you want them to do (or don't want them to do, depending).


For example, you may have a character that's participating in your story because they're being paid to do so. If the noble that was paying them met an "untimely" end and the pay suddenly stopped, the character may bow out and say some rude things to the rest of the group. 

These motivations and goals are the major influence in why your cast is acting the way they act and thinking the way they think. It's really important to consider the WHY behind the action before you plot out the action itself.
