      Like 300 pages (and ongoing) of Pirate LitRPG Fantasy Adventure?  Pirate Wizard might be up your alley. https://www.royalroadcdn.com/public/covers-full/pirate-wizard--aadazbfkwra.jpg?time=1639496421 (...)


    2. Seeking recommendations for CULTIVATION or CRAFTING

      Been reading lots of different stories here, and I had a question to throw out to the veteran readers...what is 'cultivation' versus 'crafting' in a story? Does one refer to an MC seeking to raise their (...)


    3. Re: Doing well on rising stars.

      Your reverse-engineering makes sense. What are your observations for the Trending list? - Sparks2020


    4. Re: Doing well on rising stars.

      Hey, Congrats Jemini! Here's to continued success. I like your explanation of how 'Rising Stars' works. It seems that several lists like Rising Stars and Trending are algorithm mysteries. I don't know (...)


    5. Re: Alien Diaries - completed plus stats

      Congratulations! 65 chapters is a huge accomplishment. Love your cover too. Just put your story on my 'to read' list! - Sparks2020


    6. Re: How to get onto Trending?

      As DrBuller and ParkerTAllen have said, trending changed and they're keeping it under wraps. (And yes I just scrolled through six pages of topics to find the last time I pasted that link. 😆) (...)


    7. Re: A newbie writer appears!

      "A newbie writer appears!" - He's very effective! (Sorry, couldn't help myself, lol.) Welcome, I hope you enjoy posting your material here as well as on SCP. I've read a fair number of SCP entries, (...)


    8. Re: Help me with a couple LitRPG genre in-jokes?

      Thank you Brian! The cilantro thing does make sense, I've read about the genetic component aspect. Apparently I'm on the opposite side as you; I quite like cilantro as a garnish or in Vietnamese pho, but (...)


    9. Help me with a couple LitRPG genre in-jokes?

      Hi Everyone, Just wondering, I keep coming across certain in-jokes in the LitRPG genre, but where are they from?   Examples of ones I *do* know: Gnomes Rule: from Aleron Kong's 'The Land' series (...)


    10. Re: For a novel to get a large audience, is the goal getting to Rising Stars/Trending? What factors influence (...)

      Re: quality and ratings matter  "No, it doesn't, and no they don't. I have seen three star crap stick in the middle of rising stars for a week." Brian Murphy nailed it on that one, I've seen the (...)


    11. Re: I've finally begun releasing my story to the world!

      Congratulations, a lot of us new authors are in the same boat, I wish you success. Update: I read several chapters and gave your story some love. Paragraphs are a bit chunky in spots but nice work! (...)


    12. Re: I love BBQ, Sushi, LitRPG reading, and LitRPG writing. Not necessarily in that order!

      Welcome! It's your intro thread, you get to make the rules. 😅 I hope you enjoy RR and your fiction finds an audience. Thank you! From your lips to God's ears, as they say. :-) I've got my eye (...)


    13. Re: I love BBQ, Sushi, LitRPG reading, and LitRPG writing. Not necessarily in that order!

      Now that's why most people choose to remain lurkers. Once out in the open, you're subjected to stuff like the above. However, it's a small price to pay to enter the Ranks of the Authors (Ideally there'd (...)


    14. Re: I love BBQ, Sushi, LitRPG reading, and LitRPG writing. Not necessarily in that order!

      Welcome! May you find many a plunder of magical rings and staves. Thank you for the welcome!


    15. I love BBQ, Sushi, LitRPG reading, and LitRPG writing. Not necessarily in that order!

      Hello Everyone, I'm a long-time reader and lurker, who's just decided to put my first 10 chapters of an attempt to write in this genre I've come to enjoy so much. Don't think I'm allowed to mention (...)


    16. Re: Dungeon core novels that are NOT gameLIT/litRPG?
