There is no Epic Loot here, Only Puns.

by stewart92

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.

Delta the Ditzy Dungeon Core

Reviewed at: 128: Ode to Deo

I'm on chapter 16 at the moment. Haven't seen any dungeon puns yet, but plenty of fun situations.

This story did one thing very right. It has made Delta, the main character, likeable. I just want to root for her as she tries to improve her dungeon. Recommended for dungeon builder story enthousiasts.


Its Ruli good. The depth of Deltails provided in the imagery and descriptive language makes it a joy. By the time its finished I believe it will be a Core story of Royal Road.

 Keep up the writing and puns. Look forward to the many chapters to come. 



Привет stewart92

Stewart92 Я твой фанат. Так что знайте, у вас есть русские фанаты!

Я плохо знаю английский, поэтому читаю через гугл переводчик. Даже плохой перевод Google не разрушил вашу книгу!

A classic dungeon story, not so classic anymore. Dungeon stories nowadays have been so overdone that there are only cliches left. Not this one though. Delta is basically a novel about a person/heroine saying I don't want to kill anyone, I want to be their friends. Except this one isn't so cringy. This novel is heartfelt free flowing classic without all the japanese isekai tropes. A must read for everyone.


One of the better Dungeon stories out there

Reviewed at: 101: How to be a Dungeon

I can honestly say that this is one of the better Dungeon stories out there. 
Very good world-building with just some slight flaws in terms of the "Characters know a lot more than what the reader gets to know until the story calls for it" type of writing style a lot of authors go for to progress stories.
To me, it`s a bit of a negative, but the rest of the story covers it easy enough to not make an issue out of it.
All in all this story is great, and a must-read.


This is one of my favorite comedies and Delta is amazing. I like the world building and the slow reveal about who and what she is as she tries to be friends with everyone while facing her worst nightmares. With a wide cast of colorful characters (who probably don’t properly give out the nightmare vibe they should; Maestro) I definitely check in regularly to see more of Delta. 5/5 would recommend.


Heartwarming yet engaging with a good plot

Reviewed at: 105: Delta's Day Off

This is a light hearted read, but at the same time has a rather deep plot that keeps moving forward. Some laughs, some smiles, a couple cries. Give it a shot you'll be surprised...


One of my all-time favorite stories

Reviewed at: 1: Smashing Start

I love this story, and would recommend it to everyone. It has well-built story and plot, and some of the most memorable characters I have ever read about. Some small grammar mistakes here or there, but these are barely noticable and didn't detract from my enjoyment one bit. A must-read for everyone, in my humble opinion. I started reading and finished it in under a day! I just couldn't put it down.

The fact we're given actual maps is the cherr- er, mushroom on top.

Delta needs many hugs and more mushroom friends!

A dungeon story that is good to the core

Stewert takes the traditional dungeon core trope and adds humor,puns and a interesting plotline on to it.The grammer is great, the characters are well developed and the story is interesting and ever expanding.This is a must read for those who like adventure and fantasy with a dash of humor.
