when you add an event there is a box for something called "Tension." What do you use that for?

For now you can set the tension levels as percentages, 0-100% or even 200% etc. Tensions for now are just a way for an author to set a visual reminder, per event, of how much the tension is progressing or regressing throughout the storyline. Eventually, Matt has suggested, down the road, he'd like to have a way to graph and then display these tensions, to give the user a visual tool to map out where their timeline may need some work etc.

Come on Matt, the graph of tension by event would be really great.

Hi, A graph of numerical data tied to events (such as tension) has been requested before and is on our list of possible features to consider adding in the future. Jess
