What Wikipedia Doesn't Know Can Hurt You: Writer Research Skills


If you only wrote what you knew, you'd never learn anything. But can you learn facts fast enough to make your game stand up to expert scrutiny? And when should you try? Chris Hepler gives his perspective switching from the "soft" space fantasy of Star Wars to the rocket science of Mass Effect. Learn how to manage the modern fire-hose of information, avoid common pitfalls, and sound like an expert even if you're armed only with a humanities degree.
