There is an answer here from FraEnrico which is the cause for my question: What is the difference between character-driven stories and plot-driven stories?. Here he explains a bit of what an "arena driven story" is, but I wanted to know more.
What is an arena driven story? (As the structure of it is around the environment like FraEnrico said.) I've searched for it on google but have not found anything good about this theme, so I'm here asking you guys what you know about it.
Still, my question looks too wide, so you can try to answer my doubts and wonderings:
- How can the environment be the antagonist?
- What the characters/protagonists are doing and what they want to achieve?
- Their motivations, they want find peace in this world? (like, purifying and saving it) Or maybe they just want survive? (because the world is doomed)
- Can you give examples from these kind of stories? (especially from literature, if you can)
