There is no Epic Loot here, Only Puns.

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.

Excellent characters and world-building

The development of the village surrounding the dungeon was a pleasant surprise. This isn't like other stories where the only character is the reincarnated dungeon core and a few very close companions. Instead, this author goes above and beyond with interesting world-building that only makes me more and more excited at who is going to walk into Delta's dungeon next.

Dungeon Core Waifu Seeks Friends

This is the story of Delta, the dungeon core with the heart of gold.  Fans of murder dungeons looks elsewhere.  There is a strong supporting case, although as this series continues on I feel like Delta as a character is surprisingly stagnant.  Kind of adorable, but stagnant.  Also it seems, 60-odd chapters in, the author is pretty comfortable with the size of the dungeon in relation with the town that most interacts with it, which is starting to feel lackluster.  

And yet I'm still reading it so who am I to truly complain?  This story is plot light but character heavy, and thank the heavens because some of the characters are outright adorable.

One of the best story’s on Royal Road

As always I will keep this brief. Story is amazing. Massive amounts of character growth, puns and jokes out of the wazoo, drama that doesn’t get old, memorable characters, good worldbuilding, and has unlimited potential. Give it a read, you will not regret it.

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.

Ive just read from prologue the chap 75 and i have to say this may be the best story ive ever read. The characters are wonderful and full the progress is slow but noticable and concept is fleshed out. My only issue with this story is that im out of chapters to read.... for now.

Try it. You won't regret it.

Stupidly funny, (or is that punny?) with a solid storyline to keep you entertained. Lots of tropes, puns to make your toes curl, comedy gold and just a pinch of tragedy to give direction to the story. Honestly I can't find anything to complain about. This is my favourite story on rrl. Give it a try, you won't regret it.

Why is there no comedy tag. Delta deserve a comedy tag. Her whole dungeon deserve a comedy tag. Hell, this whole novel is one big comedy tag

If Pratchett Wrote Dungeon Fic

As I was writing this, I noticed that two other people have already compared your work to that of the late great Sir Terry Pratchett.  And who am I to go against my esteemed peers?  Because they're totally right.

It's got abtruse coincidences, convoluted puns, one-note characters that reveal secret symphonies, and just downright clever and interesting dungeon ideas.  It's great.  If you're not reading it already, maybe get started.

Reviewing up to Ch. 69

I'm really enjoying the character development, the comedy, and the plot. While there's some room for improvement on the grammar and formatting consistency, it reads well.
