Hello everyone,

My name is Aorii. I've been a longtime veteran of the novel-writing community. First started as a translation-editor back on Baka-Tsuki to work on my language skills (worked on the original SAO project and is proud of it). Starting posting my novel Daybreak on B-T back in 2013.

I've been resisting coming to RR for years due to its... questionable reputation (=P) but Kanadaj finally convinced me to come over and I've been pretty impressed by his work at the site.

Not really sure what's the best way to make use of these forums so advice would be welcomed =)

Welcome,

Your customized introductory package includes:
  1. https://www.royalroad.com/account/signature has a new feature to auto-generate a signature for your fictions, it's based on Xian's detailed signature creation guide (https://www.royalroad.com/forums/thread/107061) just in case you want to do something more advanced in it by hand. 
  2. Once you get a fiction going, there are several thread offering help with a free cover for any fictions that have been complaining that they don't like their current cover, or you feel like you'd like a second cover opinion  Jack0fheart is closing in on 100 covers  in use https://www.royalroad.com/forums/thread/108672  Or I may be able help you out if you want a different style https://www.royalroad.com/forums/thread/109422.  If you want custom hand drawn work there are a couple of artists doing that as well: https://www.royalroad.com/forums/thread/109500 and https://www.royalroad.com/forums/thread/109466 Appears to be handled.
  3. One unquestionably bumpy, questionably cleaned, definitively dry DrakanPotato  ℝ𝕖𝕡-𝕠𝕥𝕒𝕥𝕠™.
Happy Writing!

Just nosey about and add replies to existing topics that interest you till you get a feel for it, I guess.

I hope you enjoy RR and your fictions find an audience.

Welcome to the website! Not the business tho.

Veterans are, of course, respected here. 

Questionable reputation though? You make one communal sacrifice to b̴̛͎͈̮͒͊̈̚o̴̪͉̮̽̑́̔̆̆̕͝l̶̢̥̻͑̒̉͆̃̏̂̚o̵̢̻͍̙͐̂͑͊ğ̸̨̻͖̎͛̿̚͝n̷̡̛̺̠̻̽̌̐̓͘̕͜ȩ̸͉̱̱͈̺̊͒̎͐̆̚͠s̷̩̄͠e̶̝͍̿̽́̂͗ and then everybody gets iffy about it. s/

I do hope you enjoy your stay!

  • Thanks gej. I've actually been wondering what to do with the cover. It's the only completed cover from my old artist before we broke off. It's also... something I'm afraid might be misleading because the cover is significantly more lighthearted (and cutsified) than the story itself.

    Is the first link the cover advice thread? xD
