Plot Point
For the role-playing games concept see Plot point (role-playing games) In television and film , a PLOT POINT is a significant event within a plot that spins the action around in another direction. Noted screenwriting teacher Syd Field discusses plot points in his paradigm , popularized in his book Screenplay: The Foundations of Screenwriting . There he proposes that a well-structured movie has two plot points within a three-act structure. The first plot point occurs 20 to 30 minutes into the film (assuming a standard 120-minute running time), and the second one occurs 80 to 90 minutes into the film. The first plot point ends Act I and propels the story into Act II; likewise, the second plot point ends Act II and propels the story into Act III.

In Dark Horse Comics ' definition of a limited series, "This term primarily applies to a connected series of individual comic books. A limited series refers to a comic book series with a clear beginning, middle and end."

Role-playing Games
A ROLE-PLAYING GAME (sometimes spelled ROLEPLAYING GAME and abbreviated to RPG) is a game in which players assume the roles of characters in a fictional setting . Players take responsibility for acting out these roles within a narrative, either through literal acting or through a process of structured decision-making or character development. Actions taken within many games succeed or fail according to a formal system of rules and guidelines. There are several forms of RPG. The original form, sometimes called the tabletop RPG (TRPG), is conducted through discussion, whereas in live action role-playing games (LARP) players physically perform their characters actions. In both of these forms, an arranger called a game master (GM) usually decides on the rules and setting to be used, acting as referee, while each of the other players plays the role of a single character
