    1. Re: Any untold rules here in RR? What to not write?

      No, but it's in poor taste and not widely regarded by any authors with even a little skill to use rape and violence as a way to make a character interesting (especially a female character) because you (...)


    2. Re: I hate the 'everyone just gets along in the end' cliche

      Is your lead: 1) Young (under 30)? 2) Purposely written to be attractive (especially to the male gaze/audience here)? 3) LitRPG/progression/harem? 4) A lesbian? 5) In need of being rescued by a (...)


    3. Re: I hate the 'everyone just gets along in the end' cliche

      There's a term for a mindset like this and it begins with "i" and ends with "l". One of the reasons I don't post my work here; there's a lot of young boys and men who have a massive grudge (...)

    5. Re: I hate the 'everyone just gets along in the end' cliche

      I blame this on the inability of writers to grasp how crappy human nature (assuming the actors in the story are mostly human) really is. That's just like... your opinion, man. You do realize this (...)


    6. Re: Is there a place for other genres than LitRPG on RoyalRoad?

      I asked this question a few months ago and got some frank answers that traditional novels don't do great here. Which is why I decided not to post my re-boot weird western novel series here; there's no (...)


    7. Re: Is this site still mostly LitRPG stories, or did the Wattpad exodus open the door for traditional fantasy (...)

      No. You must have missed the part where I said repeatedly I checked around the site for a while myself and came to the same conclusion. I was simply thanking that poster for being upfront and honest. (...)


    8. Re: Is this site still mostly LitRPG stories, or did the Wattpad exodus open the door for traditional fantasy (...)

      The "Wattpad exodus" is utterly irrelevant. Sure, maybe 10 or 20 or 50 authors moved to royalroad. Out of them, there's maybe a few notable fictions. So, no difference. And I very much doubt it that (...)

    10. Re: Is this site still mostly LitRPG stories, or did the Wattpad exodus open the door for traditional fantasy (...)

      Yeah, I'm not sure I want to fight for readers on what's a heavy LitRPG site though. I really wish there was a more adult-oriented writing site out there. I'm also seeing there's some form of gatekeeping (...)

    12. Re: Is this site still mostly LitRPG stories, or did the Wattpad exodus open the door for traditional fantasy (...)

      Thanks for the info. The last time I poked around here (admittedly years ago), it was almost entirely LitRPG and harem stuff, which is fine, but not my target audience, so I was wondering if things had (...)


    13. Re: Is this site still mostly LitRPG stories, or did the Wattpad exodus open the door for traditional fantasy (...)

      They still tend to be the most popular, but it is not really a set rule. Beware of Chicken has taken the site with storm, as an example No LitRPG, no harem, and while technically a xianxia, it is more (...)


    14. Re: Is this site still mostly LitRPG stories, or did the Wattpad exodus open the door for traditional fantasy (...)

      What the question said. I published a story here years ago but not much outside of LitRPG and harem stuff was getting many views in those days. Has that changed or am I better off publishing new fantasy (...)


    15. Re: Good grammar, ongoing stories.

      You can give mine a shot-- grimdark sci-fantasy with a western twist (think Deadwood meets Dune). I have two books up here--just need to finish uploading the second one, or you can grab both on Amazon (...)


    16. Re: Anyone one know a story with a straight female mc on here

      I have a multi-POV story on here with a straight female protag (two, actually-- the second book has another--she's introduced in book I but gets her own chapters in the sequel). It's not LitRP, however, (...)


    17. Re: looking for psychological grimdark anti-hero novel.

      Give mine a shot if you want.  It's a grimdark sci-fantasy with a western motif. Think Deadwood meets Dune meets a wee bit of fantasy tossed in. Multi POV--every POV is a varying shade of gray (there (...)


    18. Re: Ya Know What? Go Ahead And Plug. Show Ya Stories

      Well, my series has gore, profanity, sexual situations (no sex scenes, however), and it's NOT LitRPG ;) which is an auto-pass from the majority of readers here. The series was originally picked up by a (...)


    19. Re: Mature and sexual contents

      No smut, but DEFINITELY mature themes and content otherwise. https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/10083/salt-in-the-water--a-lesser-dark-book-i-second


    20. Re: Fantasy with no Game elements

      I don't write LitRPG so if you're looking to avoid computer screens and all that-- well, my series is more along the "traditional" literary angle. Not game based, original world/characters/etc.  Grimdark (...)
