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.
