Last week we played with options for creating an interaction between the Adventurers and an angry barkeep, Bigren the Bitter.  You, oh clever quest author, have established conflict in your story and must now determine which options to give your adventurers to resolve it!  Selecting 2-3 of these allows you to create an "Action Chain" that will prompt roleplaying or a skill check (d20 roll) with a game effect (combat, Loot gain or loss, roll bonus or minus, etc.).

The * is used to begin decision scripts in the Quest Creator, and the **goto  ** creates a pathway leading to a card/screen for describing that choice's consequences.  Replace the X with the name of the card/screen once you've written it.
