comment Dresden RPG thaumaturgy conditional triggers
@TimothyAWiseman On the Jim Butcher site, there's an (unfinished) thread on a tutorial to DFRPG - jimbutcheronline.com/bb/index.php?topic=30499.0. There's also a couple of lists of resources: dfrpg-resources.wikispaces.com, evilhat.com/home/dresden-files-rpg-downloads. No official quick start- but those resources have a lot of meat to them, including the official 'case files' available on DTRPG and linked there.

comment Dresden RPG thaumaturgy conditional triggers
+1 Great answer! One addition, however. He asked about the effects of sunrise on the ward, and Sunrise can be considered to be a threshold, so that even though your ritual was to last for a few days, if you didn't power it enough, the weakening effect could in effect reduce it to less than the planned duration and/or dispel it. See YW230, and this was discussed in another question

comment Tree based tool to create dialog
@Jason_c_o - even though it's codified for the game-rec tag, pretty much any type of list type question should be considered to have the same requirements. To keep them from becoming just lists. Though... I'm conflicted, because that chat mapper is pretty awesome.

What gomad is getting at on this type of thing, is that in order to make these types of questions not just a list of links, RPG.SE does require that rec type questions are based on personal experience, rather than just linking something.

@gomad having friends that are writers that use it in the gaming industry, it's actually closer to what the asker wants than you might realize. It's a professional tool, and priced as such, but it is to handle the branching and scripting dialog in a plot in addition to other things.
