Original ONGOING Adventure Fantasy Female Lead LitRPG Magic

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.

I really enjoy this story.  A lot of the secondary characters are great, both the dungeon monsters and the people in the town nearby.  The whole story is very charming.

Once again, stew pulls off an amazing and fun to read adventure. One of my favorite stories of all time.

  • Overall Score

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.

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.

Captivating story, bad puns, I like it

It's interesting how overpowered characters still have mundane issues, worries, and expectations. There are so many OP characters in this story, but at the same time, none of that overpoweredness leads to simple skips of things. Problems still exist, mud still sticks, people get just as annoyed.

It makes interpersonal clashes much more interesting where basically nation destroying entities just slug one out over a simple argument, where a simple grapple turns into landscape destroying altercations where the normality somehow shines through.

The way the dungeon develops, the bad puns flow on and even expand and the intricate Microphillic tendencies of the dungeon give it such a great personality.  I can't wait what will happen when floor 42 is reached. I wonder if Fera will ever invent a gargle blaster to bash Ruli's head in with a lemon slice wrapped in a gold brick. The story keeps me wondering where it will dig, what it will unearth and how it will develop.

I recommend this as a solid read, but I do wish that the author would use something like Grammarly or just look at the red lines of the spell checker editor to fix the most glaring mistakes. It can pull one really out of a storey when the wrong word is used.

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.

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.
