She became a dungeon core.

Everything pointed Delta to murdering her way to success. People were just mana farms, right?

No, that was wrong. Delta refused. Then everything became odd.

Hey, you know all those dungeon stories where the dungeon proceeds to murder without regret? Well in this story the dungeon puns and makes friends instead.

 

Stewart mixes together Pratchett and modern Isekai to produce something special in this wonderful story.

lovely story about a pacifist dungeon

(as of chapter 67)

'There is no Epic Loot here, Only Puns' tells the story of Delta, a young Dungeon Core (that was a human gamer girl before and retained some RPG-related memories). Instead of doing what every dungeon core does (lure in people to kill and feed on them), she is a pacifist. So Delta creates a peaceful dungeon with friendly monsters and places for people to relax, also befriending the people from the strange village outside (which is full of powerful retired adventurers). And she likes puns, horrible horrible puns, infectious puns...

Style: Told in third-person internal style from multiple points-of-view (Delta, the Dungeon-Menu-turned-sentient-entity, some of the monsters and people). Often there are multiple scenes in one chapter. The flow of the words is fine with much variety.

Story: Delta's pacifist-to-a-fault attitude can be a bit difficult to relate to when an experienced dungeon story reader thinks about the murderhobos that might lurk around the corner just waiting to burn everything down, but it is a refreshing and very cute story. The inhabitants of the dungeon are supported in their dreams by their loving creator-mother and the positive results that develop from that warm my cold and disillusioned heart. There is a large focus on the living but the tiny details of their surroundings aren't neglected either. The puns, well, either you love puns or you hate puns depending on your personality, but they are high quality (that water in my eyes is, um, just the rain. Really!).

Grammar: A few times per chapter there are slight oversights like a missing word in a sentence, a typo or a clause-change mid-sentence. Sometimes the wording is a bit unhandy. Nothing that couldn't be rectified by a strict proofreading though.

Characters: Wow, just wow! Everybody has their own personality and quirks, from the monarchist spiders in the first room to the dungeon notification system to the friendly simple-minded child of overpowered village inhabitants. Some of them are very strange but they fit the story well. The characters feel really alive and are believable.

In total, a very recommendable story with a light and friendly tone and an unusual take on the dungeon core theme. And with puns, I think I didn't mention them before. Extra points for the map!

I have to be honest, when I read the synopsis of this story did I expect it to be the mainstream dungeon story that appear very frequently on this website.

I am glad that the author proved me wrong.

I am now at the latest chapter, 19, and I can honestly say that every chapter is entertaining and written in a way that draws you in.

It's impossible to stop reading and I look foward to future chapters.

Just Shut Up And Take My Heart

 

I am writing this advance review after reading till chapter 36(44 and the omake and interlude).

Style:

The way you write is AWESOME.

Story:

The story is amazing wheter it is the overall plot or the drama and backstory of the character, the comedy and the pun that can make the spiders cringe, or even the slice of life days.

Grammar:

There are a few grammatical error in the story but that's probably typo or you were tired. Overall there aren't any error that broke the immersion of the story.

Character:

The character... Oh the character the way you write them makes them so realistic and full of life. They are not some cookie cutter serve only to make the MC looks good they give meaningful interaction, awesome backstory, and many more.

 

All in all this is a story that I will recommend to people to read because it turn a classic story about dungeon into something so much more. Give it a try will you.

I like dungeon stories, but I've always felt they tend to jump straight into being an adventurer from the other direction. Straight into killing people for resources. It's really nice to see a new angle. That said, it's still very classically dungeon-y. Monsters, traps, the usual.

Still, there's a lot of potential here. Our Main Dungeon does want to seem to spice things up, and I'm hopeful as things develop the formula will get more of a shake-up, and we'll get even more puns.

Get Ready for Epic Pun-ishment

Reviewed at: 83: The Fortress of Silence

TLDR: Stop in for the click-bait title, stay for the funs.

Ever enfolding builder scenario of increasingly numerous and lovable characters. I was a little concerned that the author had bit off more than they could chew with the continuous puns that the premise seemed to be based off, and boy was I... totally wrong to be. There are puns everywhere. Puns for days. Puns for miles. Puns on puns. Puns in building, puns in eating, puns in combat. I love puns.

Written in a narrative sort of way that has a few different perspectives of wonderful recurring characters, tremendous witticisms that seem straight out of a pratchett or gaimon book. Give it a shot for a 'meh' moment and wind up 75 chapters in.

once upon a time, the world decided to hide its greatest monsters, its greatest heroes and its greatest enemy all in one location, and hoped they would fade away with enough time... they shouldn't have hoped. 

This is the story of Delta, a sentient and sapient dungeon who grew strong way before she was supposed to in a location that the rest of the world would like to forget existed. Trouble is, she doesn't like to kill like a dungeon should. she doesn't like others killing in her new body either. An idealist who has the strength to back up her ideology in the face of unspeakable evil.

This is the story of all the monsters who call the dungeon core their mother, who have shown more emotion and character than any side characters i've seen in any professional work. They are just too easy to love, and I love every single one. This pun-loving family of goblins, trolls, skeletons, a mime, a duck and legion of mushrooms has made me smile no matter how sad i've been. 

This is the story of the residents of a town who the world wanted to forget- ancient powers who have awoken thanks to delta's presence, who are ready to fight against evil once more. A stroy about every single one of them, and how this world has hurt them, and every dungeon that lives in this world out of greed. 

this is the story of the children, the new heroes of this world, who would do anything to protect delta, the kids who are set to inherit the greatest darkness the world has ever known, just before it's about to strike.

Now ask me tell you, have you ever had a villain make you cry from something you've seen them do? i'm not talking tears at their own death. i'm not talking about some misguided tears of joy from their demise or watching them kill someone important. I mean genuine, heart-felt tears of fury and hopelessness over something a villain has done that just made you curl up and die inside for a while. This story gave me that. it's good. 

just... just read it. enjoy my punny children. i love them all.

I have just finished catching up to where the book is currently at chapter 27. I really enjoyed this book because it has a steady and realistic progression of the main characters abilities and dungeon. Also as was mentioned in another review it has an understandable map and not long list of stats and stuff. But the part I like most about this story is that is one of the few books on the site that makes me laugh out loud as opposed to just finding something funny. the characters are lovable and there are a lot of things I want to hear more about like the town and her goblins  lives . It is definitely worth a read so why don't you try it!

A soaring epic with a lot of heart

I have to be honest and score low on grammar and style. The errors appear consistently in every chapter, but I honestly don't even care -- this story is that good. The characters are defined and unique, with unexpected motivations and flaws. With a good editor this could easily be a top-selling ebook.

I implore you to look beyond the spelling, grammar, and occasionally clunky sentence structure. This is well worth a read. You won't be able to stop.
