Here's a link to an awesome script-writing program. This really helps when creating a story-based campaign with a lot of dialogue. It's just a demo, but it's actually the full working version that doesn't allow you to go over 40 pages, you can't copy+paste from it to another source and when printing it there is a large watermark. It's pretty expensive to purchase, but the demo has enough in it for what we do.

Once you learn how to use it it's a breeze. It remembers characters names and does all the formatting for you...you just have to fill it all in.

Not a very complex, but still definitely useful trigger work for future designers:

Hi Adder,

got two:

Example Scenario for Newbies about triggers:
http://empires.heavengames.com/downloads/showfile.php?fileid=1902

The Scenario includes 17 examples of trigger settings, explained in detail in attached PDF.


Example about text formatting in campaigns:

I'll check them out, thanks.

Edit: No offense or anything but I don't think I'm going to update the second one, I already have the formatting commands up there and your second link only reinforces them, I have yet to play the first...Okay, I've played the first, the PDF file was okay, the scenario was lacking though, no objectives, empty spaces of the map (Although there was terrain variation which is a plus), blocky forests, just not something I'd want to give as an example scenario, if you change the things I mentioned give me a shout and I'll look at it again.

Since I see you've already been directed to the one in the Scenario Design Library; try this one basicically it's the same except for different wording. If you don't understand it after reading both the articles I doubt I can explain it any better than the articles can.
