    1. Re: Do Stats Really Matter In LitRPG?

      I don't like them. I feel the same about levels if they lets increase your hp etc. It's creates unneeded power-creep. Here is a video why https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6UV2gXwFPw


    2. Re: How many chapters does a story need before you would start reading it?

      At least one. However it also needs 40 pages or more. Under 40 pages, I’ve found that the risk of abandonment is high.  


    3. Re: What makes a good introduction?

      Her neck snapped with a audible crack. “Ahhh that’s the spot” she moaned. “A few more and you’ll feel like a new born” the chiropractor stated calmly.


    4. Re: Love interest

      If the story isn’t all about romance it doesn’t really matter or at least I don’t think so. However I reckon it’s useful to start early so you can related exploit conflict throughout the story.


    5. Re: Schedule changes, good or bad idea?

      Create a back log and see if you can handle it.  I.E try wrong faster but don’t post faster until you know you can handle it.


    6. Re: What's a good way to avoid info dumps?

      I’ve noticed a lot of the time the author explains things that are either obvious or unnecessary to know. Like if it’s a litrpg: strength increase your your ability to carry heavy things. Well no shit. (...)


    7. Re: Ideal Chapter Length?

      I will probably not read your story if you have less than 2,5k. In my experience it’s a sign of longevity and quality to have longer chapters.  More than 12k is a bit excessive.


    8. Re: Quick Q about Prologues

      I never read prologues. They are not part of the story.


    9. Re: Single Lead vs Multi-leads

      As a reader I can say that in a lot of novels even ones I would consider good, I simply skip chapters with povs other than the Mc. Like “so I’m a spider so what”. Simply because I don’t care about their (...)


    10. Re: Criticism leading to hiatus

      Thanks for the replies everyone.  Ironically my biggest take away is to provide more positive feedback to motivate the author to continue. It has historically not been some I’ve done much either.


    11. Re: How To: Simple Review

      To me as a reader, the most important part is a synopsis. Followed by your subjective options about The story. This because a lot of the time the authors synopsis doesn’t really tell me anything.


    12. Criticism leading to hiatus

      So I’m not one to state my option on particular stories. Besides spelling errors. However I’ve noticed a worrying pattern. It goes as following 1. The author release a new chapter. 2. A lot of readers (...)


    13. Re: Why do people like LitRPG?

      Litrpg is often done poorly however that could probably be said about any gender. For me the appeal is progression. The “self-insert door mat” isn’t usually that appreciated. The actual blue boxes themselves (...)


    14. Re: Possibility of the Introduction of a "Cultivation" tag

      A none-humanoid tag would be great also. Dungeon core/master also.


    15. Re: LITRPG STATS and items?

      I actually don’t like things like strength constitution etc. They create in my opinion unnecessarily power creep. I’ll explain let’s say you have mister stabbyface, he wants to kill the protagonist so (...)


    16. Re: How much can you write in a single chapter? -my curiosity speaking....

      I prefer reading stories with 2500+ words per chapter. If I notice that the first chapter is quite a bit less I won’t read the story. I’ve found that unreasonably short chapters is sign of poor quality. (...)


    17. Re: MC Development - What Path Do You Prefer?

      It depends on the story either make them op basically from the gecko or have them slowly acquire strength. Them starting out weak and than getting unjustifiably strong “just because” like op ability from (...)


    18. Re: Chapter Length

      I prefer 2500-6000 words per chapter.


    19. Re: Descriptions of Distance, Time, And Numbers

      A important thing people often forget is to write like the character would tell the story. A science guy would be more exact for instance.


    20. Re: To prologue or not to prologue?

      I don’t read prologues and will assume your story is worse if you write one. That being said there are situations where it would be appropriate. However most stories I read here on royal road don’t (...)
