Alright guys I need some assistance in filling in the gaps for my book. Here's the basic information you need to answer me questions. Hayben(Main Character) is a warrior who is training and eventually joins the Aincaad Empire's forces to become the best there is. Didren(Main Supporting) is an orphan who trains and becomes a mercenary in order to earn a living. Didren and Hayben cross paths and end up following the same goal, to learn about an ancient civilization that's covered in mystery, and to uncover the location of a special book and its secretes. throughout the story Didren has flashbacks of his past, of his parents that he never knew about. Their faces were always blurred in these flashbacks. In the middle of the book he is told that his parents were in fact the King and Queen of the Aincaad Empire. His parents were ambushed while traveling, his mother killed instantly and his father was forced to hide Didren. In order to protect him from the people hunting down the king, he left him at the front door of an orphanage. The king has passed away and Didren is expected to be the heir to the throne as is expected. Didren refuses the crown feeling unfit to be king not only because of the things he had to do to survive as a mercenary, but because he let three people die in his travels with Hayben. Also Hayben has always been the one to lead the way and direct them to what was next every time they were in the middle of a problem. Didren offer's Hayben the crown. Hayben Accepts. The spots I have to fill in the story: How does the king die. (keeping it simple with death by old age/illness, or complex with assassination) How does Didren learn that he is the heir the the throne and he must take action. (should it be simple and obvious to get to the main story of their travels, or should it be more complex/detailed) I guess my main question to you is, what would you like to read that would keep you interested? Would you like these gaps to be filled in with treachery, assassinations, and political power aside from the main story of Hayben's and Didren's travels together? Or should I keep these gaps simple and to the point with some background story in order to stick to the main objective of the book which is Hayben's and Didren's travels.
