I like to have a story, but the players and games should contribute to it.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Angel Barracks Inactive Member wonders...

I am just embarking on a new 6mm sci-fi project. I have the rules and almost have enough toys ready to play a few games.

I have done some very brief background around the major two forces that will be used, so that I can understand their motives and reasons for conflict.

I have done a bit of background/fluff on the planet on which most of the battles will be fought.

What I have also done is written a brief story arc and decided how the future of the next year or so will look like.

I have not written the outcome of the story, as that I want to achieve through game play.

How much story writing and emphasis on a story arc do you do when gaming?
story arc is pre-determined
Do you just have a series of battles, with no single battle affecting the overall story?
no story arc
Just one-off battles that have no bearing on the world's future
ending is pre-planned
Is each game like a chapter in a book, and drives the story forward to a pre-planned end
games determine the story arc
I start with the premise of the campaign itself and go from there
