Overview: Using Fallout: New Vegas DLC's Dead Money as a test case, creative director Chris Avellone runs through the process in creating a small RPG game narrative from pitch to completion, detailing all the tasks along the way: Pitch docs, narrative standards docs, thematic design, maps and level layouts, bug fixing and more until your game story is finally in a player's hands. Focus and questions include specific studio tools and techniques: story flowchart creation, building emotional vistas, script proofing, and text editing and lockdown sessions.
