    1. Re: Goblin Isekai

      The Goblin Nation Apparently coming off hiatus this Monday and there are 711 pages to read in the meantime. https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/22042/goblin-progenitor Probably won’t be updated again but (...)


    2. Re: Looking For English Light Novels To Read (Self-Promotion Allowed)

      It’s such a great series. Actually https://www.royalroad.com/profile/159171/fictions does an excellent Overlord fanfic which he has started moving over from fanfiction.net to this site. (https://www.fanfiction.net/u/9039586/atheistbasementdragon) (...)


    3. Re: Looking For English Light Novels To Read (Self-Promotion Allowed)

      I think you’re likely to find a lot of stuff the more you dig. You’ve also got some great recommendations for additional sites to check out for more content.  A sizeable chunk of authors on here were (...)


    4. Re: There should be a recommendation/suggestion list under each fiction

      I’m afraid it’s not still running. I also haven’t give it any new data in months so there are piles of great new fictions that it wouldn’t  even know to recommend.  In theory I had hoped synopses would (...)


    5. Re: There should be a recommendation/suggestion list under each fiction

      I actually built a prototype recommendation engine for Royal Road several months ago and briefly had a demo running on my discord server. In which you could enter a fiction name or ID and get several recommendations (...)


    6. Re: Bad-Good Reviews and Salty Authors

      I like the idea of reviewer rating in general. When we were talking about it on the discord I also mentioned that it might be interesting to include a reviewer’s average rating across all fictions at (...)


    7. Re: Continue...? A weekly reviewing service.

      Updated with a review from Acacia Chronicles


    8. Re: Debate This: Shaming Review Swap Scammers

      The you need to review x number of fictions before your fiction goes up for review is a solid strategy. We do have a never ending throughput of people looking for reviews, it also avoids some of the (...)


    9. Re: Continue...? A weekly reviewing service.

      Review is completed for Book of Dreams: Staff and Sword


    10. Re: Rate or Review an Unsuspecting Author's Story

      I’ve got a lot of joy from reading Scales of Trust, and writing up a detailed review for it is on my own personal to do list. An excellent story about a dragonman who finds himself in a Stone Age fantasy (...)


    11. Re: Continue...? A weekly reviewing service.

      I’ve updated the thread with my review of The Warrior Orphan.  It’s one heck of a good book. Check it out


    12. Re: Continue...? A weekly reviewing service.

      Finished my review for Minding Other’s Business just under the wire. If you’re in the market for an adventure story featuring black-comedy with a touch of madness this is the fiction for you. 


    13. Re: Continue...? A weekly reviewing service.

      No review this week, my apologies, I’ve been frantically polishing up documents in preparation for a committee meeting and haven’t had the energy to sit down and focus on other writing related projects. (...)


    14. Re: Continue...? A weekly reviewing service.

      I’ve slipped my review for Qleehl in just under my self-imposed end of the week deadline.  I’ll add among monsters and men to the original list.  However, I’m closing the list to new entries for the (...)


    15. Re: View count stuck?

      I witnessed it myself last night. I posted a new chapter and spent a few hours tweeking* it. I would reload after an edit; there would be a few visitors on the page; this made me naturally curious about (...)


    16. Re: View count stuck?

      Well it definitely isn’t stuck.  It’s gone up around 100 since I last looked. Things to note, visiting the fiction page doesn’t count as a view. Only reading the chapters. And there is some deduplication (...)


    17. Re: An unusual request: reviews review

      Everyone else has already said so many useful and insightful things so I’ll keep this brief. Looking over your reviews nothing jumped out at me. One possibility I hadn’t seen mentioned is you may have (...)


    18. Re: Continue...? A weekly reviewing service.

      Review for Arcadis Park is done, if you like murder mysteries you should probably give it a shot. 


    19. Re: POC/Interracial Novels

      There are a lot of Japanese light novels with the premise of a Japanese person gets dropped into another world (usually a western style medieval world). They do often touch on the idea of foreignness. (...)


    20. Re: Continue...? A weekly reviewing service.

      Hey there! I'm sure it'll be well into book 2 by the time you get to me but that's okay, I'm patient :) lol Anyway, I'd love it if you could give my work a peek. It's a character driven, female-led (...)
