"Imagine that you got a piece of land in your possession," Omah began to explain the basics of his former religion. "You remove excess vegetation, and possibly all of it if you want to build, for example, a multi-story building, or a warehouse, or a plant. At the same time, you see that some malicious insects live on your land, and every time they come in your way they try to bite you or somehow hurt you in another way. Maybe they are just unpleasant to you. What would you do with them?"
"I think I would kill them," answered Ghom.

Hi Oleks,

I would certainly describe myself as an animal lover! However, (like Ghom) I'm always prepared to kill any irritating insects that bother me haha!

Please see some of my comments

  • Imagine that you got a piece of land in your possession - Imagine that you had a piece of land in your possession [you are describing an improbable situation, so you need to use the conditional tense]
  • You remove excess vegetation, and possibly all of it if you want to build, for example, a multi-story building, or a warehouse, or a plant. - You would remove excess vegetation - possibly all of it if you wanted to build, for example, a multi-story building, a warehouse or a plant.[same here]
  • At the same time, you see that some malicious insects live on your land - At the same time, imagine that some malicious insects lived on your land.
  • and every time they come in your way they try to bite you or somehow hurt you in another way. - and every time they got in your way, they would try to bite you or somehow hurt you in another way.
  • Maybe they are just unpleasant to you - Maybe they would just be unpleasant to you

"Imagine that you got had a piece of land in your possession," Omah began to explain the basics of his former religion. "You remove excess vegetation- (a dash or semicolon would be better here) and possibly all of it if you want to build, for example, a multi-story building, or a warehouse, or a plant. At the same time, you see that some malicious insects live on your land. Every time they come in your way they try to bite you or somehow hurt you in another way. Maybe they are just unpleasant to with you. What would you do with them?"

"I think I would kill them," answered Ghom.

Nice job, small changes
