I like reading fantasy stories and procrastinating. You might have seen posts from me where I point out typos because those pain me. You might also have read my reviews.
In my reviews I try to be honest and I use the five star scale in a way that is (at least since about May/June 2019) rather strict and lower than the usual ratings on RRL. To all those authors where I dragged down the average rating, I'm sorry, the RRL rating system is just bad. A rough explanation how I use it would be: 5 stars means "a great story, fitting for the literary hall of fame, a must-read for everybody"; 4 stars means "good but with flaws, enjoyable, you should read it"; 3 stars means "interesting story, serious flaws but can still be fun to read". The overall score is a mix of the technical subscores and how much I like the story.
Note/disclosure: The number of "follows" below is lower than the truth, I made a secondary account where I follow those stories (currently more than 50) that I presume dead, on the off chance that they are revived. I don't want them to clutter the list in this account. But all favorites are still marked with this account.
You're still reading this wall of text? Impressive. Then I want to reward your patience by telling you about some stories that don't receive the amount of readers their quality deserves. They are listed in my favorites but the authors need additional help:
* 'Pirates of the Milky Way' (jaxonreed): an epic space opera, with adventures and interesting characters and space pirates;
* 'the Acts of Androkles' (Ryan English): in a world modeled after Ancient Greece, a grizzled war veteran sets out to reclaim the family honor, has to overcome mythic and worldly obstacles on the way;
* 'the Adventures of Einarr Stigandersen' (AlleneLowrey): in a world modeled after Viking Scandinavia, the grandson of a thane sets out to reclaim the usurped ancestral seat, has to overcome (mostly) mystic obstacles on the way.
