Requirements and Options

Postby Geoff1975 » Feb 28, 2013 10:35 am

I've been wondering about options. Many times, do the prerequisites and requirement types indicate the kinds of options in a movie? For example, if the prerequisite and requirement is Gathering Information and Understanding, have you noticed the options will involve ways of doing that?

Good question. I don't think I've made that correlation before and don't know if it works like that. My gut tells me that the link would be more likely tied to Requirements of anything, but I suspect it's independent of other story points. That said, I don't see why you couldn't do double duty in the storytelling by combining them when you want.
