    1. Re: Question regarding what makes a LitRPG

      There's usually an entire continuum between simple fantasy/sci-fi and litrpg (with gamelit being a kind-of midpoint). It's not helped by people having different ideas on what slides your story from one (...)


    2. Re: How Do You Find Web Fiction Off RR to Read?

      Note that if you go to r/litrpg on Reddit, don't just barge in and ask for recommendations. That happens about twice a day (at least), so people tend to simply copy-paste. Just check the subreddit first (...)


    3. Re: Text Color in Tables?

      @batotit : The properties offered are background and border, but not foreground. So you cannot set the text color for all text in a table. And yes, for some reason, the color you set for individual (...)


    4. Re: Ya Know What? Go Ahead And Plug. Show Ya Stories

      I realize I probably haven't plugged in my second (and ongoing) series: The Infinite Labyrinth ( https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/27263 ) Genre: Alternate-History, Steampunkish, Reality-based Litrpg (...)


    5. Re: NaNoWriMo Hype, anyone?

       I wasn't on the writhatlon, as I was mostly doing draft one of my second book in the silvergates story, which meant offline work. And it was a disaster, because there's a massive blockage on an arc (...)


    6. Re: Do you perform Post Mortem's on your completed stories?

      I did that for Silvergates book 1. I wrote an Author's note as I was publishing each chapter, updating based on feedback and what I agreed and disagreed about those (I mostly agreed - there's several mistakes (...)


    7. Re: Recommendations

      Recommendation systems are usually better based on people's behavior rather than people's talk. The reason for this is that you harness more people rather than relying on a small fringe that does recommendation (...)


    8. Re: Reincarnated into a Machine/Tech/AI

      You should post this in the proper forum section rather than technical support.


    9. Re: How to fix table text colours?

      As for myself, I haven't been able to do a proper black-and-white tables on RR. Selecting a white background and a black text on the properties of the table yield a gray on lighter gray result.


    10. Re: Developing a System

      The other way to use CHA, I believe, either to call them Presence. You can’t always talk your way out, but, your presence can most likely increases your party moral, attract animals, intimidating other (...)


    11. Re: Advice on Reading for Writing Style Inspiration

      That's what editors are for. They'll spot those tense/perspective problems, and you can fix them. But it's unfortunately rare to have that already done by the time you post on RR.


    12. Re: Bookmarks: Jump to last read

      One of the problems with the Continue Reading is that often, this brings you to the last chapter you've already read, since it was the last that existed. Unless you're facing Randidly "I'm posting 14 chapters (...)


    13. Re: How to turn your webnovel into a published novel.

      When you go to apply for your book to be enrolled in KU, the system will do an online search for your book. It can't be on RR or anywhere else, and if the system flags you, your book won't go on KU. (...)


    14. Re: Trending Fictions

      Getting into trending requires getting stars quickly. Staying into trending requires getting stars at the right moment. Two different extreme scenarii (pure math, totally fictitious): - You start (...)


    15. Re: Which characters are basically the same?

      I'm going to say that if you can switch a character from a story to a different story without changing the character or the story, then 1) It's probably a 2-dimensional cardboard shadow of a character (...)


    16. Re: New author here, can anyone help correct my synopsis? I want to it make more interesting.

      Blurb. Not Synopsis! Blurb! Arrrgh. Remember: A synopsis summarizes the story. A blurb teases the story. (kidding. But it's important. Blurb. Definitively not synopsis)


    17. Re: What kind of worlds do most people write in?

      Mixed themes are usually more interesting but also harder to do. What distinguishes cultivation themes vs progression themes is the focus. Cultivation is based on oriental philosophy, and has the character (...)


    18. Re: New author here, can anyone help correct my synopsis? I want to it make more interesting.

      Going to show you how it's done with The Tethered Mage a classic fantasy book: Magic is scarce in the Raverran Empire, and those born with such powers are strictly controlled -- taken as children and (...)


    19. Re: New author here, can anyone help correct my synopsis? I want to it make more interesting.

      Going to repeat a previous post on blurbs (don't call them synopsis; they don't tell the story, they're supposed to sell the story). Good, efficient blurbs tend to harp on 4-5 elements, usually in that (...)


    20. Re: What kind of worlds do most people write in?

      There's multiple subgenres around on RR, but the most popular ones are, in no particular order: - VRMMO LitRPG : stories where the protagonist plays/gets stuck/is forced in a computer game with enough (...)
