(Currently an info dump, pending tidying up to be put into the Handbook)
Step the First: Dialogue should be placed in Google Docs (Or Google Sheets based on preference) for grammar editing. This does not need to pass review for claimant to start work on their claim, but needs to be included with final submission.
New NPCs and their dialogue are posted to claimant's own .esp.
Appropriate section file must be loaded while working on this .esp.
Dialogue placeholders must be put in section file before work can begin on claim. Check for: little advice, little secret, latest rumors, someone in particular, specific place, Background, my trade, any and all Greetings
Interiors are renamed by merger in section file. Claimer is NOT to touch cell names or BAD THINGS HAPPEN
ALL new NPCs need a map filter script. NO EXCEPTIONS!
Local, TR_Map is a condition that can be used to filter dialogue responses by map. Any responses not otherwise conditioned and that may include Vvardenfell specific dialogue (e.g. all common topics as well as "Morrowind lore" and "Solstheim"?) needs this condition.
