Writer’s Digest editor Moriah Richard previously invited her fellow authors of magical fiction to determine which of two systems their novel would use.
Once they've made their choice, she says, the next step is to focus on the details of that system.
Richard offers a few big-picture questions to ask — such as where the magic comes from and who can/can't use it — along with follow-up questions and examples of how the games World of Warcraft and Dungeons & Dragons answer those particular questions.
Head to (of course) Writer's Digest for the latest installment of her series on worldbuilding in magical fiction.
