The Butcher of Gadobhra

https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/43318/the-butcher-of-gadobhra

It's a rather refreshing look at the VRMMO genre with a lovely setting and very in depth and well thought out system. It is written really well, and I think the fact that not many people have read it is a crime. It's not that new but its to much of a shame that it doesn't have a following.

Please do give it a shot! (Also if you like to binge read it has 50 chaps as of now)

Open letter!

Dear Authors,

I am continually amazed at the varied perceived understandings of "NO SELF PROMOTION" in the post scriptum of my initial post. Please be so kind and move your self-promotion over to the dedicated thread by Wing -> Link here: https://www.royalroad.com/forums/thread/112469

Furthermore, @JackPembroke - your link leads to an "Access Denied" page...

Please be mindful of all the other authors who play by the rules and do not use this readers for readers thread for self-promotion to get one over your competition for attention.

Many thanks in advance,
Balthazar

So... I've recommended alot of stories on this thread over several years on 2 accounts, some have been good, some turned out to be only decent, some even turned out to be bad. But this is the best story I've read on this site and fucking amazing. Like stay up till midnight bingeing it amazing, like Magnus Archives amazing. Do not consider, do not read the summary, just start, it's fucking gold.

P.S. I was very excited and feel very silly for forgetting to actually link the fiction. Thanks GymRat!

What story are you recommending?

https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/45998/infernal-academia This one is pretty good, anime-like, it reminds me of Assassination Classroom + A World God Only Knows, just that the MC (the teacher) is not OP, but underpowered, but still cares a lot about his students. There's a tiny bit of ecchi to spice things up, and awesome fights. (But also zero romance, he's just trying to help them, not to seduce them). I don't think this will ever be a hit with 10k followers, but it could easily get to 1k or something like that. :)

Another one, it's huge already, but actually only 1 month old and only 19 chapters. https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/45534/this-used-to-be-about-dungeons I love it so much. It reminds me of Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash, which I loved so much. The writing is amazing, I love the characters, the worldbuilding is perfect, and the dungeon was tense and interesting. The pace is a bit slower, the chapters a bit longer, so this might not be for everybody. But I would rate it 10/10 any day of the week.

I'm excited to be finally recommending something to this thread. I've always wanted to, but I never read many stories on RR, and few have impressed me enough to pick up my lazy self to recommend somewhere unless directly asked by someone I know. Anyway, I found this through a free review I offered on my forum thread, and it greatly surprised me. But since the author doesn't post often, nor seems to market/advertise, that doesn't help for gaining reader traction in the algorithm/typical RR way. So, I hope for the author to find success!

Thank you so, so much for featuring my story (Doctored Chance: The Unpleasant Preceding of "Pajama Boy" and What Drove Him to Murder) on your thread! I am super excited about posting it here on RR, and will have the final chapters up within a few weeks. It hasn't had a lot of traction, so seeing it on this thread has absolutely made my day. Again, thank you!!
