excellent dungeon story

I have read many of the dungeon novels on Royal Road and this is one of the best ones in my opinion. It is the only sci-fi-ish dungeon novel I have truely enjoyed.

Amazing character development, story flows well.

This might just be my new favourite story on here. It is an incredibly unique take on the concept of a dungeon core novel.

The story flows well and doesn't get stale. I find the style to be very nice to read.

There are a few errors in the grammar. There aren't many and they don't take away from they story, but they are noticeable. Think about a plural instead of a singular, or an extra 'the' in a sentence, nothing as egregious as there/their/they're or similar errors.

If I could give a 6 for characters I would. The author manages to very naturally develop the drones that the MC starts with by showing instead of telling how they change. The drones also feel like different people instead of different clichés.

All in all I definitely would definitely recommend this novel to anyone.

Maybe cause I was sick

I was not really feeling all that good when I started reading the story and even when I felt better the story just feels so lacking. I only made it to Chapter 11.

The story in my eyes has some serious fundemental flaws. Super computer AI that has feelings but dosen't but does; you think that this would be a highly powerful 'go-getter' from the onset, but it is like getting a child's Leapfrog when looking for a state of the art mega server.

The Dungeon Core thinks and acts like a normal person, if you wanna take it a step up or down you could say it is a person with a mild form of OCD.

They story does however pick up after the 7th chapter; or so it did for me, but at that point the dungeon story I was looking for had aleady burnt the bridge.

They story up to that point is not really bad persay, it is just not what was advertised - the story as of ch.11 is about the life and times of semi sentient worker drones that learn to take care of a fubling 'sentient' calculator, and that is actually a decent story. if you are looking for it.

It's so good I coudn't stop reading for 10 hours

If you like logical inhuman powerful protagonist, this is the jam for you. It's a masterful introspection into a semi-alien mind, with good plots showing up everywhere. And the pacing... HNNNNG the pacing feels GOOD. Good job author.

Adsterhappy always makes me happy :D

-The style is fantastic, and while it represents a machine and co. well, it could use more litRPG elements to represent the litRPG tag. After all, the beggining represents that but it can also just be a normal system interface, as there is no menu. Though the upgrade paths fix more of this problem, and if the recently included system pays off well it might become a five star.

-The story is how you think they would react, but at the same time throwing in suprises here and there. There are always advancements that keep you entertained and yet there is enough tension because sometimes you aren't always supporting the MC due to ruthless actions. A fantastic balance!

-Grammer problems- 0% detected. Cleanse: Unnecessary

-The characters always have building to them. While Custodian might not have a fast developing character, those around him develope quickly. The enemies, when you see their point of view, actually seem like people. Sometimes you cringe a little when you see the people you kinda liked fall. Adds emotion to a (currently) quite emotionless MC

Overall everything is great, and if the Foreman thing gets developed further (currently i'm at chapter 35) then a five stars for style too!
