ARTIFICIAL MAGIC

For the longest time, I have wondered what would be a realistic way to introduce my Dark Lord and his minions in my fantasy series. The first two books revolved around vengeful dynastic feuds between kings and emperors, which was largely based on real-life medieval history. Therefore, how does one introduce such a sinister enemy after two books that were mostly grounded in realism. I turn my attention to magic, which is a mere flicker of what it once was in my fantasy series. What if certain experiments were conducted in an attempt to restore magic to its former glory? What if those experiments produced faulty results that lead to something ugly? Compared to natural magic, I think artificial magic would be more dangerous and unpredictable. Just as Dr. Frankenstein created an artificial human that ran amok, I think the remaining magicians would make something run amok by creating artificial magic. I will tinker with this further as I continue to write my third fantasy book.
