I'd really like writer feedback on my proposal for how stories will actually be added to the game. You can find the link here:

http://wiki.parpg.net/Proposal:Story_Engine

If it seems unclear anywhere, please say so I can hopefully refine the wording.

This sounds right on track with how I would see the story progress.
Goooood Work.

I've got most of a parser for a story file format that I'd like feedback on. I haven't finished the wiki page but it's already pretty long, so there should be enough to at least give a flavour of it.

Feedback appreciated! Bear in mind the complexity of the things it has to cover; I've tried to go with "simple things are easy, difficult things are possible" but this was quite a difficult task here.

So FIFE doesn't have a story format?
Or it is an incomprehensible morass of punctuation marks that you realized 99% of people would flee from in fear?

There's no fife story format; it doesn't even have a concept of "character" or "object" it just has "things to draw."

I greatly extended the story format page today

http://wiki.parpg.net/Proposal:Story_Format

bringing it up to date with the discussion so far, and fleshing out postconditions, variables, properties, string handling and processor instructions. It'd be great if more interested writers read it; if you don't understand it, it obviously isn't a very good reference and I need to try to fix it, but without more information I don't know where to start.
