I really want to handle this delicately. Right now, my story's flow is pretty fast paced, and I think that's good. I am currently at a scene where two characters are traveling, and they make it to a new city. So it's a party of two until they get to the new city. When they arrive in this new city, they meet two new characters who are introduced here, AND at the same time, they run into two old characters who the MC hasn't seen in a month's time. So there is a lot for the MC to fill in for the old characters, and I am trying to introduce the two new characters simultaneously, as they continue on their path through a thick and dangerous forest. I've read some on introducing too many characters at once. It's something I do not like to do. But this is the right way to do my story. I know that much. The good news is that (as I mentioned before) two of the characters, the reader is already familiar with, but just hasn't seen in a few chapters. The other two are introduced here. So my problem is now I have a party of six characters traveling together. How do you keep things interesting and involve all of the characters? I don't want any one particular character to fade into the background or to be forgotten. Help?
