Bringing it Together:
Start at Session Zero (collaborative world/settlement building).
Focus on fleshing out the Community, esp Rumours.
Any time you’re adding a character, creature, or faction – ask “why is it here?” and “what does it want?”
 Keep Threats connected & flexible, and use clocks / timers. 
Think about Conspyramids and Look For Patterns.
Ground PCs in reality and focus on downtime and mundane interactions.

86: Bringing the Environment to Life

In Episode 86, Matt interviews Liam about how to bring environments to life. Here are some notes:

Urgency: Don’t give too much detail when the PCs are in a hurry
Just Enough: don’t aim to cover everything
Leave Gaps: so the players can interact with the environment
Pace Yourself: describe the important / evocative things and then back off – build on it as the players interact.
Senses: Lead with and focus on the non-visual senses (esp smell & touch). 

Questions to ask yourself when prepping a location:
What purpose is this scene filling?
What mood am I trying to evoke?
What am I trying to establish or achieve?
Is this interesting?
What’s unique about this scene?
