Quick and Dirty tutorial on how to use Plots
I just made this this afternoon. A bit rough, but it should help new people who are less familiar with the tool.

UPDATE: I have updated the videos to get rid of the annoying hum. I also shortened the demon down to three videos.

Thanks Seregil. There was some good information in there. I purchased RW last week and yesterday was just thinking about how to use plots. It was the next area for me to investigate and your tutorial gave me some solid direction.

Thanks Seregil, I found this helpful.

No problem, it was my pleasure. I have to redo them after Christmas with a better microphone to lessen the humming in the background.

Nicely organized and easy to follow along. I like your pacing.

I've been entering module material so I'm actually starting with the Storyline and Scene structure then building the plot by linking those together on the Storyboard. It was nice to see your approach for brainstorming new plotlines using the Storyboard rather than my current "build the pieces and then link them together" approach.

Your linking of plots to subplots and back again was very nice. I've been building all the subplots but wasn't reconnecting them back into the big picture to create one storyline for all navigation. I'm betting that was in the manual that I didn't read.... ;)

Actually, I didn't read it either. I'm in IT, we only read manuals in dire, life threatening emergencies.

But you DO read the forums. That's the same as reading the manual...

You read here about features that were described in the manual. It just takes longer to get the information you want this way, and you don't get it as completely as you would if you simply read the manual. You know, the thing we spent lots of time and effort on so that your lives would be easier? :P

Alright, I'm going to bed. I'm exhausted and this is quite frustrating right now... <sigh>

Don't despair, Rob. Please.

I promise that I'll read the manual tonight. Cover to cover. I might even print it out for easy reference.

It's the bane of all documentation: odds are that nobody reads it, even as a primary source.

That doesn't mean it's not worthwhile to have. Just that users are lazy and often stupid.

Please don't get frustrated with us, we're just being typical users.
