Violence is very common
In mainstream media, social networks, videogames, movies
War isn't talked about much in the mainstream media. However, it's importance cannot be ignored.
In the story, it is taken for as a day-long chore that occurs a few times a month.
In reality it is a terrible occurance that ends with the death of many.

What is the Narrative Mode and Why?
War and Violence


Ignorance is Bliss



Realism vs. Illusion
"Those idiots…one of these days they’ll end up hurting someone’ he took my weapon, stood up and fired two shots into the air."
"Even here she won’t leave me in peace."
"We lay down for our afternoon nap and slept peacefully."
"At that moment we heard a crack and the whine of a bullet over our heads"
"The setting for the conflict was open country, on the outskirtsof the city. The battlefield was fenced off with barbed wire posted with signboards: WAR, KEEP OUT."
"The ground between the two trenches was strewn with debris: wreck armoured cars and tanks mingled with the bones of horses, a reminder of a time when the stuggle had been fierce."
"“How was the war?” the cheeky youth asked.
“Fine,” I replied “ Just fine.”"

The purpose of this was to create a fiction world where the reader would feel like they are in the story, experiencing it first hand from the choices that the character makes, his/her views, beliefs and knowledge.
