Yep, its why if I want stuff outside the threads tying to the main plot, then Ill do a side series or anthology of short stories within Uplift Protocol at a later date. Yea, the side cast for UP will be pretty big but they all will tie into pulling the main narrative forward with Eliza and her Golden Redeemers at the heart of it all. That show def. lost its main draw. Even with the few episodes I saw. Not that the side cast will be idle. Y'lansa's mother will play a role with the Mavricks/Golden Bulleteer's team on Earth while crazy is happening on Typha. Multiple POV is fine. Just keep the plot moving. LOTR did have short stories in its appendixes as well. :D

So wanted to talk about the web series RWBY. Mostly of its effect on Star Warden. Using the image of their outfits from Volume 1-3 because those are good times. The rest of the series so far has been from not bad to just downright bad. It is not over yet but the journey to get there has mostly lost its luster for me personally. Mostly RWBY is an example of how not to tell a story. It is also why I don't have an ensemble cast. Mostly because this and other examples use that as an excuse to sideline the main character way too many times. RWBY also has a problem of disconnecting its main team from the plot. The plot of RWBY is focused mostly on one member of its side cast and the main villain with the main team tangentially related to the story. So I made sure that Sam and Kaguya would be tied to the main plot and can't get sidelined even when the side cast grows and joins them on adventures. But more importantly, the reason I brought this subject up is because of what happened that led to change my opinion on RWBY. Volume 1-3 took place in the world of Remnant in a Kingdom called Vale at a school named Beacon. After that, the story takes them traveling the world. Unfortunately, the rest of the world is boring and the main team got split up which divided the focus on the plot. Not to mention they never really focused on the characters in the rest of the world and the characters mostly stayed in their house and the fights got less and less frequent. Why do I all bring all this up? Minor spoilers. Star Warden Book 3 is going to have something similar done to it near the end. It will alter the status quo and leads to the rest of the series until its conclusion. Since I know @fiannawolf cares about endings this post might interest her. That means more on the space opera front something similar to Buck Rodgers (TV series) or Flash Gordon post-Mongo or Ratchet and Clank. More traveling throughout the galaxy and continuing the main quest for the rings. My plan is to basically ensure the readers that I plan to keep on track with the main plot. Even with all the new stuff, I'm bringing in Post Book 3. I originally did not plan for space opera shenanigans is because I didn't want to waste any reader's time by faffing about. I like worldbuilding and I like to get detailed. Sci-fi and space opera are like moths to an open flame for me when it comes to worldbuilding. But my readers who have jobs won't care how much I enjoy being creative. They have a fifteen-minute lunch break and just want to know what the story is. This is why I skipped the origin story and kept the focus on Aetherium for the first three books. Also why Sam's stuff is mostly flashback RWBY is kind of a warning for me to not faff about and if we're going to a new location. Try to flesh it out a bit more not have the main cast sit in a house all day until the plot comes to their door. Especially when you start the plot off on them being pro-active. Moral of the story is: Have fun world build away. Just remember you have a story to tell. Save the super detailed parts for the appendix section or have them play a role in the plot.
