So how exactly is he able to overthrow the king then? You cannot overthrow a whole kingdom's government with just one person. Unless you're talking how theyre super OP, has some shiny magic, or is demigod or god themselves.Am planning to do that
The MC is insane, but not smart.
Regarding to someone saying just farmer is stale and you say he is but you don't want him to be a generic one...The motivation is that they want to do it. It can not be expanded anymore. Consider MC to be psychopathic
But he is! There isn't much fun if I make it into a generic one...
Kinda sounds contradictory Agentt. You say he is just a farmer but also don't want him to be just a farmer...
Well I guess your story is trying to go for an unrealistic but comedic fantasy effect. To wage war and just call it a day for the simplicity sake of it.Naw, he is just bored. He just wants to wage some wars and call it a day.
He's not like a king trying to boost ego either that he is strong so he go attack other nations to make him not look weak in front of others. He just a farmer. How is he going to overthrow besides just knowing that he is insane and he does what he wants?
Ngl, but it sounds like the advice people give you - you're just pushing it away. If you already know what your story is like and dead set in how you want to write it as (insane, non smart farmer who uses religion as a plot to overthrow the king) then just go write it already. Why ask for writing tips.
Either that or what ideas are you're trying to look for? The person is just insane and throws over the king. The end. Not much development beyond he just insane and wants to overthrow so he just does it. Unless you're trying to say how he slowly unravels into insanity and thinks the king as the enemy and while the public has a good view of the king, the moment they see the king as a thorn to their religious views, they'll abhor and remove him? What other motives besides religion too? Because like it or not, a lot of others use the cover of "religion" to get something more, be it resources, get away with things, etc.
And unless your MC totally believes in that religion him being insane but also using religion as an excuse to rally support to overthrow the king is a smart move. He may be not that smart, but he ain't a dumb nutcase either.
