I came across Goblin Stumper awhile back, and find his journal interesting. As he works on his RPG Maker, he blogs about it.
The game he has titled and developing is
GoblinStomper. The link provides his current updates, thus far. You have to start at the bottom of the page and read up, unfortunately. However, as he creates his game, he reviews the core processes. These include storyline, maps, events, switches, and additional outside links for references.
I find it an interesting read, and will probably share his future updates on my site as well, giving him credit.
While working with RPG Maker, he also utilizes Scrivener, a writing software for authors. Check him out.
For the best reference book out there, check out my Utilizing RPG Maker VX Ace Lite book.
