Monthly Tip: Kinds of Conflict

There are three major categories of conflict. One is war/conflict with evil. We have some of it in Narnia, but canon limits it quite a bit. The second kind is environmental (frosts, floods, famines, etc). Canon and realism restrict this also, outside of minor problems presented by varying seasons and medieval life(which you should definitely embrace!). The last is relational conflict. RC is generally caused by two things: romance and interpersonal problems. Romance is the simplest conflict to create, but in interpersonal conflict you have more freedom than any other kind, so don't limit yourself to what is simple. Conflicting personal beliefs make great RP, and irritating-but-not-evil characters can lend to some of the most interesting and even funny RP.
