Today's Topic – Fantasy Storytelling and 7 Highly effective combat scene tips

As humans, we are always looking to improve ourselves. We go online or read books that will help expand us. As fantasy world builder’s, we also look to do the same for our crafts. Part of that craft is storytelling.
We might write, run tabletop games, or create another form of media. However, we need an outlook for our world. We either interact with players or readers through the story to accomplish this. One of the most important ways we interact is fighting scenes.
Join Jeffery and Michael as the cover seven habits that are essential to all fighting scenes. Do you follow these habits? From battles to one-on-one combat, do not forget these steps to get the most of your fictional stories.
Plus, a bonus story about the first meeting of the Norman war machine and the Turks in Anatolia that could forever change your mental image of knights charging into combat.
