The first step to story coding are so called "story events". They can be found in XML files like Story_sandbox_56_Empire.XML

Which story file is used by a faction is specified in the GC code in Campaigns_Underworld_GC.xml.

Story coding doesn't only consist of story events, though. There are still LUA scripts which give you a lot more control over the game than story events. To create proper tactical missions you'll also need an extra map for each mission with all the necessary markers placed on it.

Here are two tutorials about story events: Part I Basic Event scripting tutorial

Part II Event Scripting Tutorial Part 2

And these two are about LUA scripting: Part I Lua Story Scripting Tutorial
