I made up a HUGE spreadsheet to organize what goes where in my story. So far I have 80% of Dale's story done.
However... I have redesigned how I'm doing stats so I'll have to look at it with new eyes.
Now the emphasis of the story is that you have to make choices. Are you an Indoor person, or an Outdoor person? Are you a Lone Wolf or a Social Butterfly? Are you Reckless or Cautious? The target guys have their preferences, and that will affect how they react to you in the story. It will also affect the options you get towards the end of the game. If you have made cautious choices all along, then try to do something reckless... things might not work out so well.
