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.

Looking forward to reading more of this story,

  • Overall Score

This is one mighty interesting tale to read. The characters are relatable and have a refreshing unique of 'seen it, done that' attitudes. The way it is written makes you cringe for more and most importantly.

This is the first female lead that I find pleasant to join in her adventure. I want to be on a contract with her too!!


  • Overall Score

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.

The title should be changed to There is no Epic Loot here, Or Puns. Seriously though, either up your pun game or revise your title. On another note, characters are likable if not all that complex. There doesn’t seem to be any overarching goals or problems and retains a lighthearted tone (aside from maybe that whatever that respawned her at the start but as of now it plays no part). There is no useless and crippling foreshadowing such as “the shadowy emporer of despair and cheese chuckled gleefully, watching as his insert evil plot here came to fruition” so that’s good. I don’t really understand the setting all that much and it could use some more development. There are a few problems with grammar and all of them really stick out but luckily they’re not that common and can still be understood. The style is a resounding success and makes this an enjoyable read. All in all I’m gonna have to give it a not-bad/10

The title is an oxymoron

"There is no Epic Loot here, Only Puns" is obviously an oxymoron comparable to 'pretty ugly' or 'puns are dumb'.


Epic Loot acquired by reading this story:

1. Puns

2. General sense of fulfillment and enjoyment

3. Maps

4. Pots

Epic Loot lost by reading this novel:

1. Time

2. Weight, as you sit on your computer chair for 12 hours a day reading


also the grammar is good, the characters are fleshed out, it's funny, and puns are among the highest form of wordplay in the english language.

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!

This is definitely not your average 'Dungeon Core' story. If you are like well-fleshed characters, spider killing puns, pot-making-mushroom, and DUCKS; head over to SpaceBattles and catch up to the newest 37th chapter.

Absolutely great. Cant wait to see more. So far the entire story is constantly interesting. I love the peacefulish dungeon angle. I hope the story doesnt lose that. The characters are super fun, as are the monsters. The theme is super fun and not super heavy drama. And Delta is absolutely adorable.

  • Overall Score

Good to see this here - Love it!

I've been watching this story develop for months on Spacebattles, and it just keeps getting better. Varied and interesting characters, an intriguing and colorful world, and foreshadowing of potential plots to be. Honestly one of my favorite dungeon stories right now and a pure pleasure to read.

  • Overall Score

Publish it and I will buy. It's a fun light hearted read that is uncommon to genre it's well written with praiseworthy grammar and the characters are extremely endearing and lovable
