    One way is to create your narrative in Arrow, then export and use it as a database for your runtime/interpreter. The official HTML-JS runtime is based on the same idea. Arrow uses this runtime to create playable exports (mainly for play-test and review). Yet it means you can use this runtime (with customization) to export text-adventures directly from the editor as well. Another way is to create multiple chapters, scenes, etc. and export them as assets for your game (e.g. each scene or branch as a dialog-tree for your RPG).

    Yes, it is developed in Godot v3.x and in GD-Script (everything but the official HTML-JS runtime used by the editor to export playable files).

    JSON is just a text file with some specific conventions to be easily readable by other programs. Though, I took a look at the Inky's JSON export, and it's kinda convoluted. In your case Arrow might be a better fit. You can also consult with your programmer, since he'll be the person implementing your dialogue in game.
