Overview: In this talk, the Lead Writer and Lead Narrative Designer of the Dragon Age franchise will take you through the process they used to develop the core narrative and thematic moments in the Trespasser DLC. They'll talk both about the ideas that went from ideation to ship in more-or-less the same shape as well as those that were born, lived, and died within the space of a day - and how they were able to tell the difference when it was still early enough to make the necessary changes.
