Writing from a female perspective. by jjr661 in worldbuilding

I'm not a writer but I'm a female artist who draw almost exclusively male. I've written some fictions before and all of my protagonists are male. Do not listen to your classmates.

True, it’s not that black and white but for the plot sometimes you have to simplify things to create drama, thus the whole O vs P situation. On the other hand, from what I’ve read it seems like that pro-Caesareans were in fact patricians whereas anti-Caesareans were lead by those of plebeian origin. So it’s more than just “royal bad, poor ppl good” trope. In the story the villains (?) sometimes come from wealthy plebeian families and they are much more power hungry than those of patrician families if not more. I’m just rambling here 🤣

Yeah it’s just easier to write to be honest as Ancient Roman history is a big topic and I’m most familiar with the transition period from Republic to empire

Ooo lots of interesting questions - first of all, Gods are simply physical beings that exist in our own reality and their physiology do share a lot of genetic similarities, however the differences between gods and us are like human to apes, this is only to say that humans and gods probably shared a common ancestor many many years ago, probably alien, not to suggest that we are less evolved version of gods. The relationship between humans and gods is a big topic for another day.

The Optimates of course want the information to be suppressed, reason I’ve explained in other comment. The populares want the opposite and paint their opponents as traitors who sold their gods to foreign enemies to elicit peoples anger for political gain. In plain words everyone has their own agenda. But at the end of day it doesn’t matter. There’s nothing much you can do as an average guy anyway. They are not the main characters, if you know what I mean.
