Getting started

For some general introduction how to get started, check out How to contribute.

Current tasks

The easiest way to find out who's currently working on what in the writing department, is to check out the list of Current tasks. Active developers should add themselves and the tasks they're looking into or working on there.


These are more or less completed, or at least, accepted proposals.


Main Story Line

Smaller stories and ideas

NPCs and Locations

The Player Character and Origin

This overlaps heavily with the Mechanics section. Character_generation_and_stats#Character_Origin The general idea is to have "multiple" back stories, customized to some extent, for individual PCs. The may lead to "several" initial starting locations (than can be merged into the main "Trunk" of quests)

Writing dialogue for PARPG


Idea dump


Dialogue creation

The current dialogue interface is to create specific YAML files containing dialogue mixed with simple gamestate interaction callbacks and conditionals. Currently, the interface is being extended to handle more complicated quests. A GUI editor has been proposed as well (see above)

Writing elements
