Mmmmm. Do you smell that? Well, I hope not, because this is the internet. If you are smelling something, check your motherboards. You should be metaphorically smelling a tasty dessert that had to bake for 2 months to develop the right flavor. In other words, the egg timer is has dinged and it’s time for the season finale of Defiance! More after the break.

The first step to building any story is determining its scope.  Do you want a small, intimate tale, where the plot revolves around the PC’s personal lives (Tier 1)?  Are they caught up in bigger events that affect the entire city or kingdom around them (Tier 2)?  Or do their actions shake the very foundations of the world, and make an indelible mark on history (Tier 3)? Whether your campaign matches one of the above descriptions or runs through all three, these articles go over the details that will help craft a story in each tier, and great ways to transition from one to the next as the campaign goes on.  Join us after the break for a run down on Tier 3 storytelling!
