Great first volume...

So far so good. The dungeon story with unique own twist, while still in line with the genre. 

The main character background - as a legendary dwarf blacksmith - before becoming the dungeon, gives the story a chance to stand out.

He is a proud dwarven crafter who now has somewhat cheated death and became dungeon. He does carry over his personality and knowledge which should make things interesting in the future.

Also the way he expands and evolves his dungeon is something you would expect from a master craftsman. Without rush but with a solid plan. 

I'm still quite curious how the other character - the former dungeon now known as Echo will turn out. In a way in the beginning it was "dungeon fairy" replacement sort of thing - as a former dungeon who can share the knowledge and experience with MC. But later evolves into something more original.

Up untill the end of vol 1 the story was updated regularly, and the average chapter size was rather larger than most other works on this site. Grammar and style is fine. The plot so far is promising, and it seems author has planed ahead and has a clear direction in which it will be going. 


As for vol2, let's wait till there is more of it...


This could be very, very good...

In short : an artist builds a dungeon on cheat mode.

He is OP, of course, but the author has a real talent for describing atmosphere. You can FEEL the eeriness and majesty of the dungeon under construction.


Wonderful and professionally written. Love it. It can be somwhat poetic in the most amazing ways, and I find myself wanting others to marvel at Smit's craftmanship.         


I have a Love Hate relationship with this story

Reviewed at: Vol. 2, Chapter 14

 This is the first Dungeon Core story I came across, it is also my favourite. I started searching for Dungeon Stories just because I loved this one, but none gave me as much satisfaction as this one.

As a story I love this book, but as a reader can I ask why I always have to wait months and even years for the next Update?

Please keep your promise and Update at least once a week. I have been following this story for more than a year and it hasn't moved much since then.

That being said there are a few places that I would like to point out which seem to be slightly illogical, such as:

Spoiler: Spoiler

 Other than the above mentioned instances the story is one of my favourites. 



is it weird that when i read about him humming i imagined songs from LotR?

it would be cool if that becomes a habit of his, singing/humming ancient songs in forgotten languages that whisper on the wind for miles.


Honestly this was the first dungeon core story I ever read and it set the bar pretty high for those that follow it. I liked the overall story and the building up of the dungeon itself. The writing was good, the grammar was good and the overall story was good. I recommend reading it if you can find the full story.


I really love this one it never bores me every aspect well thought thru. I hope you'll keep on going.


One of these dungeon stories on this site that you just have to read. I'm not an expert in judging the quality of stories but this is so amazing that even I have to write something. If someone is reading this thinking about starting this novel then I sincerely recommend it because well, you will see yourself. Amazing work and once more keep going.


One of my favorites. Really enjoy the character of Smit.


This is a great story and I really enjoy it. also sorry someone did that to all the reviews (though honestly it seems kinda petty )
