Drive Books

The Drive book you choose shows your character’s goals and driving force for where they are going and why they do what they do. When reading the title of any Drive book, you’ll want to start off by reading “It is my goal and drive to…” and finish the sentence with the title of the Drive book.

Every Drive book has requirements built into it that must be met in order for that Drive book to be “opened”. Each move inside the book also has a requirement that must be fulfilled before it becomes available for use by the player. Advancement in the game is handled mostly by means of “opening up” new Drive books.

All requirements are things that must be done or portrayed by the character in the fiction. Once all the requirements are met, the Drive is opened and a player can start working towards the moves within the book itself.
