  • Revising and editing our narrative pillars as we gain greater insight into our characters and worlds.
  • Meeting with the cinematics team to kick them off on a new character that you just completed with the characters team.
  • Meeting with a level designer to come up with creative fictional plusses for a map. Then writing up an idea for a new world because the conversation was inspiring.
