    1. Re: political fantasy / court intrigue / preferably epic fantasy recs?

      Fancy seeing you here lol. Have you tried a Journey of Red and Black which gets into political intrigue later on in the novel or Knight & Smith which is more of a traditional hero’s journey? The Beast (...)

      https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/28808/the-fragmented-six-six-chances Foreshadows and leaves hints like crazy. Converging parallel plot lines require big brain energy. Supported by a wonderful cast of (...)



    3. Re: Fictions where MC is Person of Color

      https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/28808/the-fragmented-six-six-chances Black, Hispanic/Latino, middle eastern MCs. Black, Asian (from east to south) side characters. Probably helps that author is POC. (...)


    4. Re: What is your favorite POV?

      I prefer third-person limited because it has the best of third-person narration and personal first-person POV. I like getting into the character’s head without actually ‘becoming’ the character with (...)


    5. Re: What is your favorite POV?

      I prefer third-person limited because it has the best of third-person narration and personal first-person POV. I like getting into the character’s head without actually ‘becoming’ the character with ‘I’. (...)


    6. Re: How do you feel about having different human races in a fantasy setting

      I think it’s natural to have different ethnicities and races. I mean, going back to teh continent conversation. It takes billions of years for evolutionary change to happen. So different groups of humans (...)


    7. Re: releasing my first fiction

      Congrats!! Hope you’re having fun writing!


    8. Re: My third 0.5 in a row in a span of 2 wks

      That was kinda mean... Anyway, I feel like the only stories that do review swaps on here are the newer stories that don’t have that much of a following so they need encouragement/feedback. Larger stories (...)


    9. Re: How many words per chapter is TOO MUCH?

      The Wandering Inn which is one of the most popular stories on this site has chapters that are sometimes 20k words. One of my favorite stories on here sometimes has chapters above 8k+ words. Edit: and let’s (...)


    10. Re: The Fancy Pants Kids of RoyalRoad

      I haven’t come to this forum thread in months. Good to see it going strong still lol. Did the title of the thread change?


    11. Re: A newbie writer has appeared!

      Welcome to RR! I hope you have a great time and good luck with your story!


    12. Re: Does a writer have to be popular to be good?

      Most popular things (even most of the popular stories on this site) are very generic and average imo, but the producers of those things—writers in this case— have good knowledge on what vs what’s not marketable (...)


    13. Re: Writathon woo!

      Congrats all!


    14. Re: Let's Talk Chapter Lengths

      Yeah agree with Kurm. Chapter length doesn’t matter to me. As long as the author gets what they need to across. I mean, the Wandering Inn has MONSTROUS chapters but look at its following and popularity. (...)


    15. Re: What makes you dislike the MC?

      I don’t think it’s as simple as values life=BAD CHARACTER or kill kill no value life=BAD CHARACTER Realistically, people wouldn’t want to up and murder people until pushed to the absolute brink or if (...)


    16. Re: I think my review made someone quit the site

      Please keep in mind this is an amateur writing site. Some of the authors posting here could be in their teen years or younger. Constructive criticism is key. Constructive point, positive point, constructive (...)

      Congrats everyone!


    18. Re: My third 0.5 in a row in a span of 2 wks

      I'll never understand people complaining about an anonymous 0.5 stars review but being completely fine with good anonymous reviews. It's like they want all the benefits but none of the negatives.  :peoconfused: (...)
