Two: Character-based World-building
The book presents a broad setting, with many different cultures and subcultures. This world-building is generally shown through the crew members’ backgrounds and experiences.
- What did you think of presenting the setting in this way?
- What parts of the setting did you particularly like or dislike? Why?
- Were there certain characters you particularly liked or disliked?
- The crew of the Wayfarer are not the central, motivating figures of this setting. They are simply people doing a job. How does this working-class perspective influence the way we see the setting?
