When crafting your own adventures, how do you keep everything straight? I'm trying to create a complex storyline involving dozens of now deceased NPCs (not all named), multiple projects, decades of timeline, heaps of handouts (written, audiovisual, etc.) and a large building and I'm finding it hard to figure out exactly how to avoid continuity errors, mistaken details (referring to the wrong person in the wrong handout) and plain old getting things wrong.
Granted, this is a bit unusual in that it's a weekend LARP (set in Adelaide, Australia, I'm afraid for all your potential and actual LARPers overseas) and therefore a little more self-directed than your usual tabletop game and with far more handouts, but I'm imagining a lot of the basics remain correct. How do you error check? How do you make sure all of the props hang together well enough -- especially when you're even making props for various documents that would normally just be "filler" in a tabletop game?
Especially when you're one lonely little LARP writer. I'll have helpers on the day but they're not really the error checking dozens of documents sort of people.
