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.

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.

OK, so is this the most serious piece of writing? Not really. However I'm going to make the case that it doesn't need to be. The story doesn't feel to me like it's trying to be prize winning or invent new literary techniques. To me it is a window into a world and into characters that are funny, engaging and ultimately loveable to the nth degree.

The story is well paced in my opinion and was written by someone who made at least some effort to follow English grammar rules. Most importantly however is that so far it has been immensely enjoyable and never boring.

The only thing I would mention is that the secondary story is not as interesting as the main story. The cuts to it every so often, so far, have just irritated me as it diverts attention away from the characters in durence who you actually want to be reading about. I am waiting to pass judgement until these are actually relevant though. It might just be that I've jumped in too early.

Keep up the good work my friend!

Light and Fluffy Insanity

There Is No Epic Loot Here, Only Puns is a dungeon core story that leaves me at different points laughing, breathless from awe, or crying from the sheer emotions conveyed. The characters are each in-depth individuals with their own personalities and motives that mean that their interactions with each other are amazing. It has a bit of a rough start, but only in comparison with how overwhelmingly good it becomes later on in the story. It has a well developed world, plenty of mystery, and it continuously goes sideways in a direction that is both wonderful and compeletely unexpected. Sometimes has problems with rambling, and the puns could use work, but part of the puns appeal is how bad they are. I truly love this series, and it is quite possibly my favorite series on RR. Highly recommended.

Every chapter brings a smile to my face

A thoroughly unique take on dungeon novels. The writing may not be flawless, but is pretty great on the whole. Plot and pacing remain solid throughout. Characters are fun an memorable.

If I had a single complaint to make, that simply would be that there isn't enough! Even so it generally updates on a fairly consistent and regular basis without sacrificing quality so I don't really mind.

The consistent optimisitic and cheerful mood throughout the story, no matter how dark it gets, never gets annoying. If anything it is infectious and always lifts my mood and has brought smiles to some of my worst days.

It's a good story.

  • Overall Score

Subjective Enjoyment: Makes me smile.  The jokes and humor are bad, and that's how I like it.

Morals:  Similar to Discworld.  This world is TRYING to be a crapsack world, but it has one too many pesky GOOD people causing chaos.  This story doesn't pretend that the world is a nice place, but it won't make you depressed either.

Memorability:  I don't think the author knows how to make characters that aren't memorable.  Once again, I have to compare this WN to Discworld.

Updates: So far the author has kept writing despite IRL setbacks, so I doubt anything can stop the author now.  Even if it does go on hiatus someday, this work of love would still be worth reading.

Objective Quality:  I would never accuse this story of being *quality* fiction, but then again I don't remember the last time "quality" fiction made me smile.  Jones would give it an A+.

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.

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.
