  • 1. THE ORDINARY WORLD. The hero, uneasy, uncomfortable or unaware, isintroduced sympathetically so the audience can identify with the situation ordilemma. The hero is shown against a background of environment, heredity,and personal history. Some kind of polarity in the heroʼs life is pulling in differentdirections and causing stress.2. THE CALL TO ADVENTURE. Something shakes up the situation, either fromexternal pressures or from something rising up from deep within, so the heromust face the beginnings of change.3. REFUSAL OF THE CALL. The hero feels the fear of the unknown and triesto turn away from the adventure, however briefly. Alternately, another charactermay express the uncertainty and danger ahead.4. MEETING WITH THE MENTOR. The hero comes across a seasonedtraveler of the worlds who gives him or her training, equipment, or advice thatwill help on the journey. Or the hero reaches within to a source of courage andwisdom.5. CROSSING THE THRESHOLD. At the end of Act One, the hero commits toleaving the Ordinary World and entering a new region or condition withunfamiliar rules and values.6. TESTS, ALLIES AND ENEMIES. The hero is tested and sorts out allegiancesin the Special World.
  • 7. APPROACH TO THE IN-MOST CAVE. The hero and newfound alliesprepare for the major challenge in the Special world.8. THE ORDEAL. Near the middle of the story, the hero enters a central spacein the Special World and confronts death or faces his or her greatest fear. Outof the moment of death comes a new life.9. THE REWARD. The hero takes possession of the treasure won by facingdeath. There may be celebration, but there is also danger of losing the treasureagain.10. THE ROAD BACK. About three-fourths of the way through the story, thehero is driven to complete the adventure, leaving the Special World to be surethe treasure is brought home. Often a chase scene signals the urgency anddanger of the mission.11. THE RESURRECTION. At the climax, the hero is severely tested oncemore on the threshold of home. He or she is purified by a last sacrifice, anothermoment of death and rebirth, but on a higher and more complete level. By theheroʼs action, the polarities that were in conflict at the beginning are finallyresolved.12. RETURN WITH THE BOON. The hero returns home or continues thejourney, bearing some element of the treasure that has the power to transformthe world as the hero has been transformed.
