Obsidian Twilight: Outline

When working on any RPG setting from the ground up I use a simple ouline to help with the basic "skeleton" and framework. Once I know what is in my outline, I build the world from there. Here is the standard outline I always start with:

1. Introduction

  • Overview of the setting
  • How to play in the setting

2. History of the Setting

  • 20 years ago
  • 10 years ago
  • 5 years ago
  • 1 year ago
  • Now

3. PC Materials

  • Epic Items
  • Feats
  • Prestige Classes
  • Races
  • Skills
  • Spells
  • Wondrous Items

4. GM Materials

  • Environment
  • New Rules
  • Special Situations

5. NPCs

  • Major NPCs
  • Minor NPCs

6. Adventures

  • Adventure Plot
  • Sidetrek Adventure
  • Complete Adventure

7. Extras

  • Character Sheets
  • Initiative Cards
  • Tokens

Talk to you later...
