Tales of Chance the Mage draws its format from the movie serials from America, - from the middle of the 1900's especially.

The Tales are a 'Fantasy Soap Opera' - 'ripping' adventure, battle, love, and peril - with 'astounding' images. And the story is episodic.




From Wiki:
"Also known as 'chapter plays,' they were extended motion pictures broken into a number of segments called 'chapters' or 'episodes.'

Each chapter would be screened at the same theater for one week. The episode would end with a cliffhanger in which the hero and heroine would find themselves in a perilous situation from which there apparently could be no escape.

Viewers would have to return in subsequent weeks to see the cliffhangers resolved and to follow the continuing story.

Serials were especially popular with children, and for many youths in the first half of the 20th century a typical Saturday at the movies included a chapter of at least one serial, along with animated cartoons, newsreels, and two feature films."
