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.

A PUNtastic dungeon story

This is one of the most unique dungeon stories on royalroad.

And thats because it defies ALL the tropes, and adds comedy, puns, and weirdness in the mix.

Nothing is what it seems to be, theres always more behind the characters and the world.

Be  warned, many laughs inbound. And please give more mushrooms to Delta (tell her it was your own idea)

All hail our glorious duck overlords

Hilarious and different take on the whole dungeon core theme. Give it a shot, it's worth it.

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

Great jokes and good friends await in this one of a kind story. It's different and that's what makes it great when it isn't the same as a dozen other dungeon stories. Great character and mysteries make this something I think more people should read.

A different kind of story with a warm twist

Heartwarming will be the best word to describe this story, but that does not mean the story does not possess epic or action moments and amazing characters. If you add the writing, plot, character development (Oh, Nu...), world building, dungeon building...

But returning to the review stuff.

The story is centered around Delta and the characters around her, since it starts as a classic dungeon core story (dungeon building and resource management), it keeps that going non-stop but with a VERY different and unique approach and I will even be able to say that this is a story which can be read by both 13 and 18+ year old people with a double reading with characters as endearing as DEO (screaming intended) and the rest of the cast, both from the dungeon and Durence that try to be happy go lucky even if the world is a bit grey for them.

If you can spot the puns (good and bad), it's because the grammar is solid and constant, the writting flows and even if it skips to a different POV from time to time, it sounds more like extra chapters than part of the main story while helping developing the world around the dungeon.

The main character has spun, even if Delta tries to be a loving and caring "mother" to the dungeon, and at the same time, Nu is the strict father figure that acts more like a protective and caring brother for Delta.

The cast keeps increasing and in ways nobody expected due to Delta deltaing her life inside the dungeon, and the dungeon affects at the same time Durence, making eccentric people appear from there from time to time.

At this point in the story, there have been some antagonist figures in which my favorite was the tax collector (biggest evil in the world!!), but even if everybody survives Delta, that doesn't mean that they weren't deltaed in the process.

Release dates are constant and abundant, which helps a lot with serialized works; author answers properly to critizism and at the same time addresses queries made by fans. The author even draws maps for people to understand better the description and the layout of the dungeon.

If you liked the Wandering Inn, this series is similar in some tones but keeping both a warm theme and a clear direction to the story that does not let it stagnate.

i love this light novel so much. the emotions, the care put into this makes me smile just from reading. the staggering amount of unique characters and the care and deep trust they have for delta is part of what makes this story so light hearted, not to mention deltas wacky and heartful personality. i have laughed many times and am still now being entertained in my once a week reading up the updates.

I like silly and I like fun. Starts out weird and the strangeness grows to epic near incoherent proportions. Probably written by a mad mystic that has a few sanity points left.

Boy I’m glad to discover this hidden gem!

Honestly, someone suggested this on Novelupdates Forums with a link and being a bored girl I was, curiousity took over which led me to find this certain hidden gem.

I’m not best with reviews/critiques but I’ll comment for the sake of this unique and very entertaining story. 

This dungeon story is worthy for a reads. For starters, the MC here won’t give you a startling slap on the face from it’s OP-ness. Although she has the typical system thingy and a will to do her wishes on a whim, there’s still a limit for it and a little sense of what’s it like to begin small. I also enjoyed the setting because there’s no such bloody thing called harem/reverse harem that mostly dungeon stories have, instead, I like the hilarious fluffy moments here. The characters are never dull at all; they have their own circumstances, different personalities, and past experiences, definitely not boring to read. MC is a former-human(?)-turned-dungeon-core, maybe, and I became a fan after realizing her eccentric jolly behavior. She’s like a one weird good friend we need.

Some stayed for the story development, others stayed for the character-building, few stayed for the plot-twists, and I stayed for the amusement this hidden gem brought. I’m genuinely grateful that stewart92 had published this masterpiece and shared it to everyone. Thank you.

This does exactly what it promises, gives puns and dungeon fun. Delta is great and the MENU is a cool addition to this series.
