I realized something that can be a serious game-changer in my fantasy book. When the two kings declare their respective claims to the throne, the loyalties of the various nobles will be tested and they will each choose a side. These nobles have the power to control their respective kings’ numbers and resources so it will be anyone’s game. In the end, one side may have a larger army and richer resources than the other they will be the deciding factor. Other factions may remain neutral until they know without a shadow of a doubt who will be the winning side. It is going to be a complex piece to an ever-growing puzzle and I cannot wait to tinker with it.
