This tag should be used for questions about fights of any scale - from small-scale fighting scenes in your action packed fantasy novel to large-scale wars between the nations of your modern alternate universe dystopia.

This tag should be used when you are asking a question about fights. Whether you are writing a small-scale fight scene in your fantasy novel or a large-scale war between the nations of your modern dystopia there is a difference between writing dialogue between characters in a relaxed atmosphere, and showing the reader how a battle plays out or what your characters feel while they are being attacked by a villain.

When asking a question about combat you should mention what genre you are writing in, what specific problem you encountered with combat in your literary work and how you identified this problem. For example, you should mention what kind of feedback you got from beta readers if you have gotten such feedback, and how you tried to change your writing based on it.
