There are not that many solid dungeon building stories out there but this one definitely takes tops on my list of dungeon stories.

Question warning spoiler!!!!

Warning spoiler!    Author I'm confused at the end of the first book the princess turned into a slime as she was his avatar or whatever however in the next book none seems to know who she is like the pixie, even tho the pixie was the one explaining what an avatar is now She can't remember her? Plz explain

  • Overall Score

Too many plot holes

He doesn't know what slimes are, yet know about honey and gold; doesn't know horses, yet bows and swords are ok; immediately identifies Claire as a even? There isn't any sort of consistency in this character building whatsoever, not to mention the characters are really boring, albeit cute, with illogical responses and actions worse than a common Japanese light novel's meek main character.

Truly a heartwarming story about a young dungeon finding his way through the world. It's adorable how he learns the horrors of humanity and that everything is merely food! :D

The worst part of this webnovel is how there are quite a few spelling and grammar errors. I would recommend having a proofreader or editor look at them first to fix the obvious stuff or scan through once yourself before posting. The way it is written is easily understandable and the grammar errors don't undermine the meanings.


As for the story currently the only concerns I have are how the demon made his power grow exponentially and how he is the only slime dungeon. I'm pretty sure that Falcon understands the pitfall of rapid power growth being a cheap, unsustainable form of entertainment but our favorite little dungeon is still growing pretty quickly... Content such as happenings in the dungeon or adventures or how the evolutions of slimes actually behave seem much more fulfilling to me. As for being the only slime dungeon-- this doesn't make sense at all. It's a starter option and surely one pixie or another has had the idea to choose slimes even if just for the novelty of it or to experiment with the unknown.

Most of the characters are either one or two dimensional, but the focus of the story is on Doc and the biosphere of the dungeon so it's better to have only Doc and his pixie be the ones with character development. Too many complicated characters would take away from the atmosphere.

The main point is that it's exciting watching our favorite little dungeon crystal growing up and trying to survive in this world filled with turmoil and this story is a pleasure to read!~

I wish you well with your health problems, now off to read Galataea Crystallim, Hero of Naught and Mystery of the Dungeon like you recommended~

A good Dungeon to crawl

Stumbled on this Dungeon while waiting for a couple of other stories to chip themselves free of their writers blocks.  Book one has a few rough spots that can be largely chalked up to early write as you go efforts. Book two, book three the plot firms up a good deal in a way few Dungeon stories ever manage.


More than a bit of Crafter/Game Master to the theme but the MC doesn't run full tilt to over powered. The over all balance of the story is decent as not everything is explained, nor is everything whisked away by a magic solution. Style yeah mostly enjoyable but one point keeps getting hammered showing adventurers it's a "good dungeon" and isn't going to go blight the landscape.  It keeps getting brought up but it's insipid exposition. The factions could be a little more pronounced and the whole thing handled by a couple dungeon runs, an MC balance tweaking discussion, and after dungeon reports with the faction bosses comparing notes.  Grammar..........never thought I would say this but even if you don't go for typed gutturals only the mom has a bit of purple formatted flavor to her text. A bit of formatting can go a long way to making people stand out as individuals.


Good or bad the brothers are the best characters out of all three books. They shine. Elementally perfect bouncing in out and around the story in a way that just works better than everyone else. I laughed, clapped, cheered, laughed harder. Calling them MMO gamers on a speed run may be off the mark but also a fairly accurate description.


P.S. The teleport glyph......Not sure if I can call  it genius but it's a great mechanic to skip a lot of repetitive elements after their first run. A lot of Dungeon stories are either dungeons with a much simpler design or a meat grinder without something like a teleport.

P.P.S. looking forward to book four.

I mean that quite literally anything else besides 5 stars for royalroad, is pure nonsense.

Fun Read Should Read

I hope this story goes on for a while as it is a fun read. The Protagonist is not too strong but not helpless either which is something that is hard to do well.

I love this story

Your story is part of why I come and check RR every couple of hours. The Slime Dungeon is one of my favorite stories on this site. Please keep up the good work.

I've read other dungeon stories and oh my blob this is a better read. I loved how the author is pacing the story so far and thank you my dear good sir for not making the MC overpowered too fast. The characters' involvement with each other is great, not focusing on just one for too long and giving everyone what their current role in the story is.


Grammar is great and not an eyesore, character development is good, and I don't know if this is what they'd call a biased review for giving you straight 5 stars.
