Episode 13 - Starting Your Story

January 15, 2020

We put our money where our mouths are this month! Writer, streamer, podcaster, and game designer Emma Larkins has come to us with the very beginnings of a time travel story, and we apply the principles we've worked out over the last year to help her figure out where to take it, and how to start it. This might be the best episode we've ever done, and we're really proud of it.

New Rule: 

Solid time travel mechanics do not a story make - Time travel is a tool a writer uses to tell a story, not the other way around.
