    Hey guys,

    I'm struggling with Pages as of now and wanted to check if some of you have a suggestion.

    What I currently have is:
    - a list of characters with their descriptions in one pages document
    - a list of battle formations/options in the second file
    - the history of the world in the third file
    - the current timeline of in the fourth file
    - the "cinematics" in the fifth file
    - the dialog in the sixth file

    And I still didn't start with the spells, names, cities, bestiary and so on. I would actually be happy to do it in an offline wiki file, but I'm not sure if that's the best thing to do.

    Any recommendations from your side, what would be the best way of writing this? Thanks...

    As I mentioned above, I have everything scattered around in documents and no way of interlinking it like a Wiki page to get a better overview. I installed Scrivener right now and experiment a bit with it, but any other suggestions are welcome.

    LOL I didn't see having separate files as a problem.

    I recommend something like a mind map or even a network diagramming tool. That offers a visual depiction of the interconnections.

    Yeah it can be a pain in the ass once you want to reference something and then find it under all these documents... Ok, will try, thanks!
