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.

Overall

So this is a dungeon story, cliche I know; however, this one is different and much better than many others. 5/5

Style

So this story is the common trope of someone turning into a dungeon, but there are twists. This dungeon doesn't suddenly want to murder everyone and their grandmother after becoming a dungeon. The POV changes are done very well and contribute greatly to our knowledge and they go with the story well. Currently feels sort of slice-of-life as of chapter 23 (may be subject to change). Unique and well-done. Did I mention at the end of the chapter there is a map of the dungeon as it appears so far? It is also labeled and very easily understood +.5 stars 4.5/5 Sorry your story is great, author, but I can't justify giving another dungeon story 5 stars for style no matter how good it is. It just isn't original anymore. Keep up the great work with your story though.

Grammar

The grammar is good and there are no major errors. The story flows well and is easily readable. There are no minor errors like missing commas, apostrophes, colons, etc. either that I can remember while writing this review. 6/5 Because most grammar on RRL is crap.

Story

great world-building so far. We are slowly learning more about how dungeons are viewed and treated in this world as well as how they work. Other than that go read the story yourself I can't put much here without being vague or giving spoilers. 5/5

Characters

One of this novels strong points all the characters so far are great. The village nearby the dungeon seems like gathering place of DLC endgame content. Everybody, there is overpowered as hell but has some reason they live out here in the middle of nowhere. So far we have a confirmed dragonslayer, ex-archdruid, holy saint, and other miscellaneous powerhouses. The POV of different "villagers" is done splendidly. The menu has started developing a personality as well as of the latest chapters I have read. Amazing characters that aren't flat at all. Showers Author with gold stars 100/5

You start for the dungeon, you stay for the world!

This story is as different from the generic reincarnated as Dungeon(-master) as could be.
You start with the MC reincarnating as a Dungeon and slowly getting to know what that means and how to move forward. But continuing onwards, people outside the dungeon are introduced, their stories, their lives, their characters. And with each chapter, with each character and every pun (XD), the world gets revealed.
The story so far (Ch-95) has developed to a point where you can´t wait for the next chapter, because you simply can´t anticipate what might happen, or what consequences might follow.
I can only recommend reading this Novel! XD

General funny, strange, and just plain fun.

I do wish it updated more regularly, but regardless, there is very little to complain about in regards to the novel, in my opinion.

It earns the slothy seal of approval.

So I saw this story mentioned elsewhere and came to check it out. Not my usual tags. At which point I found myself literally guffawing is when I decided to stay for the long hall. Well worth the read.

Ready for the Spotlight

Hellooooooooo everyone!

Klemnomaniac here to give you the skinny on one of the highest rated stories on Royal Road!

But before we a-continue, a note: the essence of this review, written by fabulous moi, is done in the spirit of one o' my favourite characters in this divine piece of calligraphic ecstasy.

So with no further ado, darlings, let the performance commence!

--Verse 1: STYLE--

And what would a performance be without style and flair, I ask you sugars? A bore, is the answer.

However, this story thankfully does not suffer from such an issue.

Written in such a way that engages the audience, it leaves you wanting for more, like any good star should.

Easy to read and with constant progression, Mother-dearest, or Delta for her close fans, will leave you wanting an encore of her humourous shenanigans time and time again. FIVE STARS, BABY!

--Verse 2: STORY--

Now, little chickadees, any good song will tell a story but only great songs will let you know what they are as soon as you hear their rhythm.

As soon as you hear about the girl whose a pacifist dungeon, you'll immediately know that it's this story. Driven by a unique and engaging premise set in  a fantastical world, it's no wonder Mother Delta's got her fans here screamin' for more!

--Verse 3: GRAMMAR--

Now, an interlude.

Grammar is good for any structured song; the difference between being a singer and a sinner, though my pipes and looks are all devilishly good, cherubs.

Overall, this story keeps a relatively high level of grammatical combobulation that brings out a masterfully written story. Mistakes are far and few between, probably due to some oversight or bug.

And after all, we know a thing or two about a glitch in the System. wink

--Verse 4: CHARACTER--

Me oh my, if it isn't the Chorus of this here enterprise! A song is only as good as the music, cher. And my, isn't the music good?

An eclectic, zany cast of characters if ever there was one; you could say it gives the story soul. Anywho, my little darlings, if there's one thing you'll find in spades reading through this mish-mash of pure joy-joy goodness, it's the heart imbued by the care and attention to each and everyone person introduced into the setting.

--Outro: CONCLUSION--

Sad to say, my mushroom maniacs, but I must depart but not before I give my final song.

You'll find no story more entertaining, driven by it's universe and endearing to the end than 'There is no Epic Loot here, Only Puns.' I highly recommend it to all who would want to read comedic fantasy. Hell, I'd recommend it even if you didn't. But it would certainly be a mistake to miss out on this wonderfully, absolutely fab-ul-ous piece of literature.

And if you ask who I'm emulatin' for this review?

Well, you'll just have to read the story, honey-dumplings.

A star's gotta have a little mystique, you know?

Style and humor very reminiscent of early Pratchett work, though still fairly rough around the edges.

Wonderful and lovable cast of chacters, even the main character, though she could maybe cut back a little on the puns (or at least be less on-the-nose about it, calling them out at every turn).

 

Very good, with potential to be brilliant. 10/10, would visit again.

Could've been better

Extremely fluffly, nothing really happens. There's some nice lore on dungeons and it's effect on the nearby population, but nothing really happened from chapter 29-40. Dungeon development slowed down dramatically, and the personality of the MC has not really been developed. The only problems the MC has is in designing the layout of the dungeon but she has only to think of something and the solution will be given to her. Her assistant has more personality and the story would be vastly improved if it was told from his perspective.

It really feels like I'm Preaching to the choir here about this but here we go.

You! Whoever is reading this, you should stop reading my review and go read this story, like, right now.

 

Still here? let me convince you.

Here we have a dungeon with CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT! they go through phases before figuring out what they truly want. They have genuine mistakes and setbacks that cause their friends pain and they learn from it.

The town is honestly my favorite part, however. Large amounts of characters who feel like they were originally created as one-off jokes become deep and complex. backstories are dark and tragic without feeling overbearing.

It is rare for a book or story for me to like it with no villain, no real goal. And yet, I can't stop reading this. Even now I'm looking at chapter 111 desperately waiting for 112.

So, yeah, read this like right now.

She is human and she likes people. This is a problem because the best way to get mana is to kill. Yet she perseveres and survives.
