Dunno if I should put this here exactly, but Fantasy is known for having more large casts than other genres. If it belongs somewhere else, I’m sorry but I’ve been trying to think of where in these wide forums to stick it for days.
There are so many writing advice posts I see talking about “main character this” and “protagonist that”, and every time I see those terms I’m like, “But what if you don’t have just one main character, or even a central trio?”
I have seven main characters in the first part of the Sisterlands Sequence, and also seven only slightly less prominent characters who do stuff too. Then there are the relatives both adopted and by blood, some friends, new allies acquired throughout the series, and I’m not even getting to the family of villains yet! I don’t have one of anything!
Is there anyone else who’s in the same boat?
