I want to write a book in a similar style to Game Of Thrones so that there are multiple story lines that interlink and other peoples actions affect others. My world is magical although magic itself is not a big thing as it has not been around for a long time. My world is run by Dragons in human form who can shape shift but these men stay far from humans and rule from their castles or something - I need a little help developing this for some creative ideas that can be revealed later on in the book. The MC is a boy who is 10-15 years old - something happened to his family which is also something i need a point in a direction with. His family is said to be able to communicate spiritually with animals and humans not full conversations as such but kind of make them realise something when they are miles away from one another. With animals it is more of a they think of the animal doing something and the animal indirectly does what the person wants. I was taking some inspiration from King Henry VIII and the "King" (Not one of the Ruling Dragons) beheads his wife or someone of a family with extreme power. From here there are two paths I could go: Path 1 - The family starts an uprising civil war and that's how my MC family die - because they lost? Path 2 - The family is not related to my MC and they stop supporting the lands ruled by this king so that the people begin to starve. Either way this causes extreme havoc in the world and the Dragon Rulers have to come from hiding to sort things out - maybe releasing their true form to the world. Everyone would be scared of dragons and therefore would let them rule and take all the power until you get the wannabe hero possible one of my future MC's or the MC I have already described. - Any help in developing the history of this world to lead to this type of setting would be much appreciated. - Any help in developing new MC's that could come from distant places and they somehow all meet up be it through war on sides against one another or another reason.
