I am currently working on a fiction novel. The way the world (magic, technology, government, species etc) works is extremely complicated.
Basically, the idea is to reveal the mechanics bit by bit . The problem is how much should I reveal? If I reveal too much the tension would be gone and there wouldn't be the unknown factor. On the other hand if I reveal too little no one would understand what is happening.
I am scared of not revealing enough, because I know how it works and it would seem to me that a given portion of information is enough although it isn't.
I am sorry for any mistakes in the question, English is not my mother tongue, if any clarifications are needed, pleas say so. [:
