If so, how? If magic is involved, can that be misused to damage the physical world it’s set in? In my novels, I’ve set up barren areas, made that way by having too much magic pounding them. This has a knock on effect in forcing populations to move away and into other areas, causing tensions between the different groups (the sprites are generally condemned for having an irresponsible attitude to sex and reproduction - they are at it like rabbits!).
What are your world’s customs?
What does it do/say to those who rebel or don’t follow the customs “correctly”? How does it react if someone shows up one or more of the customs as wrong? Is there a history of dissidents or have you got a character blazing the way here?
Is the media controlled, directly or subtly?
With FNN I have a snobby goblin, Roherum, keen to please the Queen so he’s not going to rock the boat. Could someone be placed by your authorities deliberately to manipulate matters on their behalf?
