You are so immersed in the world that your mind fills in gaps that readers will see. I find other readers can help, although a good editor will be of great value.

World Building: Spirituality

The need for humans to believe in some being greater than themselves is very strong. For most of our past, religion has been a big factor in culture, laws, art and daily life. Sometimes for good, more often as a tool to control others.

“History may be just bones and ruins to you, but it is people, Janet. People loving, hurting, and dying.”
Cindy Tomamichel, The First Journey

“Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing.”
Robert E. Howard

“It was no ape, neither was it a man. It was some shambling horror spawned in the mysterious, nameless jungles of the south, where strange life teemed in the reeking rot without the dominance of man, and drums thundered in temples that had never known the tread of a human foot.”
Robert E. Howard

“But not all men seek rest and peace; some are born with the spirit of the storm in their blood, restless harbingers of violence and bloodshed, knowing no other path....”

“Lift that scimitar against me, you Hyrkanian pig and I'll gut you where you stand!”
Robert E. Howard, Conan : die Original-Erzählungen aus den Jahren 1932 und 1933

“Let me live deep while I live; let me know the rich juices of red meat & stinging wine on my palate, the hot embrace of white arms, the mad exultation of battle when the blue blades flame crimson, and I am content.”
Robert E. Howard
