How do kingdom invasions work? For those playing games like Final Fantasy XII, they would know that in fantasy stories/games, a kingdom would wage war against their neighboring kingdom in order to "take it as their own". 1. What are some reasons why a kingdom would invade the neighboring kingdom? 2. Also, what happens next after the war is over, with the invading kingdom being the winner? Does the new rulers immediately hold a public appearance in front of the entire people to tell them "the new rules, etc.."? 3. If a resistance against the new rulers is formed, what could be an ideal motivation for this resistance? How do they go about "resisting"? I'm not actually looking for the true answers.. I'm just trying to find out about the more ideal ways to write it.
