*NOW GAG, THIS IS WHERE I NEED* YOUR HELP!!
1) Now even though the cause of this tragic calamity is because of what this evil cult did, I'm still having trouble coming up with HOW they rose to power! GAG, I'm HOPING you can HELP me with that!!! (HIGHLY IMPORTANT)
* For this novel series, I'm focusing HEAVILY on character development and any insight you could give me would be invaluable! (I really wanna focus on race diversity in the characters and thier origin).
*I'm also doing HEAVY research on the weapon usage in this time period. I want to stay away from guns, but I like the idea of cannons though. Any insight you could give me would be greatly appreciated!
*Got any ideas for monsters? No* Twilight shit!
(No Vampires and Werewolves) Use your EPIC imagination!
**I'm really excited to start this book** and can't wait to hear your feedback!

You could look back at history and read up on how the Nazi's rose to power or ISIS or ancient empires or something to get realistic ideas for how stuff like that happens. I used to write a lot when I was younger, but I'm much more of a science person... so if you ever run into a part of your story that might need some science I'd be of much more help XD good luck!

Sorry took long worked a 10hr shift plus walking in The cold. Now character development. Bleh luckily for me I'm a novelist. I like to call it character arc.
1) the reason your botched on this part cause never answered why are they evil in the first place. Demons serve no point to no your plot. Now to fix this you gotta know what's there goal and back story. In real life demons goal is to take on gods angels, why? Cause they disagree with only one God can serve for humanity. So they voew to take revenge on the Angels.
Your story case. The demons wants to rule over humanity : goal: " to control humanity."
Back story: cause years ago shamans and demons never really got along. One day a war broke out and no one knows who won. All was calm before the storm until they voew to return.
(Shamans are humans that can contact the dead and seal them away as well. )0
