    1. Re: Is this good?

      I like the background. The Dale is almost invisible over the black cloud. Try changing the color of the letters to something lighter or adding a white/light contour to them. As for the shadow of the man/thing (...)

    2. Re: Help for map

      Inkarnate is great, but be warned that Inkarnate holds the copyright to your maps(even for the paid version, iirc). If you ever plan to make money with them - you basically can't. Hmm, I might need (...)

    3. Re: Help for map

      I highly recommend Inkarnate. It has a free and paid version, but even the free version is enough to do a cool map. Here is mine (though I used a bit of Krita for some minor improvements):,h_774,q_70,strp/norden_by_kitanokata_ddzncyz-pre.jpg?token=eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJzdWIiOiJ1cm46YXBwOiIsImlzcyI6InVybjphcHA6Iiwib2JqIjpbW3siaGVpZ2h0IjoiPD0xMjAxIiwicGF0aCI6IlwvZlwvN2Q2NzBlZjMtNmNkZC00MWEzLWExNTQtMjcxNjc1OTBlNzJmXC9kZHpuY3l6LWVlZDVjODBkLWVhMTktNDdlYy05NjM1LTAwMDA4M2Q0NjRhYi5qcGciLCJ3aWR0aCI6Ijw9MTYwMCJ9XV0sImF1ZCI6WyJ1cm46c2VydmljZTppbWFnZS5vcGVyYXRpb25zIl19.ZpG1EheYm-yheHYePYRjh1eJbdveoZKsp2WCjJJrdlA (...)

    4. Re: How do you create your stories?

      I think I like to mix it up. It can start with a very rough character, just a simple sketch - a girl and her pet-tiger living on a snowy mountain with her tribe. Then I think of a story that can fit them (...)

    5. Re: A useful writing platform!

      Another nice editing software is!home It additionally has features showing you how your sentence length varies and gives you information about readability, adverb use, vocabulary (...)

    6. Re: What is a debate? Debate.

      Debate - when two or more parties representing different ideologies exchange opinions on a common topic and try to convince the rest of the participants of the truth/validity of their standpoint. :peogentleman: (...)

    7. Re: How thick is your author skin?

      Paper-thin. I am an author, after all :peolaughing: . Although... I feel that it is sand-paper.

    8. Re: Why aren't people reading on?

      If anyone can find a video of someone shredding on a violin, I'd really like it. Do you accept cellos?

    9. Re: Recs for a good ol' vengeance story

      Does it need to be wuxia? Otherwise, this is a nice revenge story with excellent grammar:

    10. Re: Why aren't people reading on?

      1. Only 10 days in and 2 follows is extremely good! 2. First chapters always get a ton more reads - some read to have a taste of the prose, some like to re-read to remember details. 3. There are readers (...)

    11. Re: Authors

      Btw do you commission an artist to make your cover? It looks really great. No, I do my covers myself and have done covers for some other works here on the site: (...)

    12. Re: Authors

      When you write a novel do you just wait for the algorithm to do you a favor or do you do some advertising yourself like inviting people from Facebook pages and subreddits? The more advertisement the (...)

    13. Re: Authors

      I'm trying to write an original action light novel, any tips? I'm planning to upload weekly here and on my own website.  Write something you'd enjoy reading. That's most likely the best tip. (...)

    14. Re: Authors

      Ohhh ok thank you for all of your suggestions. I'm actually curious about how stories are being told and at what perspective. Do you authors go from telling it as a narrator then switching into a per (...)

    15. Re: a little help is needed

      Everyone else has given good answers about the copyrights and asking permission for printing/binding books. Therefore, I am going to give you some info on the technical aspect of binding since I have experience (...)

    16. Re: Authors

      First of all, Welcome to Royal Road! :DrakanWine:  Second, your question is a bit vague for a good and in-depth answer. What are the exact points where you need assistance? In any case, any novel starts (...)

    17. Re: How much depth do you put into your stories?

      Interesting question. My answer would be –I see a story like a painting. You paint with words. Therefore, different authors and styles equal different kinds of paint and finished pictures. I like when (...)

    18. Re: Free Comments on First Chapter

      Having read your first chapter, would I be inclined to continue reading? Yes. Hints/foreshadowing. Easy, enjoyable read. Funny character/characterization (MC+mentor doctor). The ending was a tad weird. (...)

    19. Re: Fantasy Map!

      Cool! If I am not mistaken, you used Inkarnate, right?

    20. Re: Free Comments on First Chapter

      Hmm, if it is not too late, I would like to hear your opinion of my first chapter too. Many thanks in advance.
