Great world building

Been through 2 episodes. Really enjoying the world building

Excellent story telling but…

While the story is very entertaining and attention grabbing it is hard to follow at time due to some of the names of characters and homelands being hard to distinguish from one another. While some of the characters names you identify right away Chris JoJo or Levina others I really had to stop and think to figure out who was speaking.
