Fantasy Fights

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Fantasies often have fighting, from the hero and the monster going hand-to-hand to tavern brawls to massive battles between multiple armies. We'll discuss weapons, conceiving fights and battles and how we actually write the choreography and strategies that make fights come to life. Other topics will include challenges incurred by killing off and injuring characters, how such fights inform the character and when details are integral to the plot.
