In one of my previous blogs, I discussed the religious structure of my novel Kingslayer. And the truth is, creating an entire religion–whether based on real religions or not–is a huge undertaking. You have to decide what is ethical in accordance with its teachings, and you have to decide how the religion is organized, and so on and so forth.
The truth is, the hard part is deciding what the people of your world believe, because that will ultimately impact how your characters behave. What do they eat? How do they eat it? What do they wear? These are all questions you’ll have to ask yourself, aside from what goes on in the church (or other holy temple).
It should also be stressed that if your fantasy world has religion, there is likely to be disputes over how the religion ought to be practiced. This is a big part of Kingslayer, as a matter of fact.
