infodumps, the bane of amateurs

I read about 20 chapters of this, and unfortunately this work is filled with infodumps.
Most conversations read like 
"Question"
"Answer"
I myself am guilty of making infodumps.
But professional editors hate infodumps with a fiery passion. They go nuts when it comes to "Show don't tell."

Plz put this in the Non-human Lead section. I've been searching for this story for months thinking it was there, but to no avail. I finally found it when I looked up slime (for the umpteenth time) and decided to look around before putting the Non-human part in. That's how I found this story (tho I found it out by a few stories mentioning you due to being inspired.). Hope this lives up to the hype.

You've done really good so far.

By using slimes as your theme you've been able to create a really colorful tale from the eyes of Doc the Dungeon. Your characters feel really "alive" and there is always more about them than meets the eye. I would also like to credit you on the fact that you managed to describe everything really well. Every time i read a chapter i can easily imagine the scenes that must be playing on at the moment like a movie inside my head. You keep your story fresh by switching from decord (Undead Dungeon) and new, memorable characters and always manage to keep the reader on the tip of their seat through great battles and explorations (And recently investigations).

I also like that you made a power roof really early into the story (S class adventurers). What you see a lot here on RRL is that authors write themself into a corner and try to keep the story alive by creating stronger and stronger enemies. (Bigger is better they think, most of the time they make their characters fight gods and such) This in itself is pretty normal but it goes wrong when the Mc (and his enemies) become too strong in a short period of time. By doing that you make all the previous battles and hardships the Mc had to go through look stupid and alienate your readers. Dragon Ball (altough it is an anime) is a good example of this and if you're looking for an example on this site i would say Once Human, Now a Parasite which i really don't recommend because of this.

Last but not least i like the fact that you change from Pov a lot. Pov changes only really shine through when used with good characters and you certainly succeeded in that. My favorite use of the Pov change so far is the bear brothers exploration and the fight against the undead horde.

This story spreads itself a bit too thin. As characters are added I care less and less about any non-dungeon activity. I wish there was another story without any drama from above ground. As it is it isn't hard to just skip past any paragraph with the bears, Nat or Mary in them.

spoiler free (was read to vol.4,c.25)

I want to use title of the first review to start mine:

I CONSUMED THIS STORY LIKE IT WAS A DRUG

33 hours of being awake. Too bad its on hiatus though.

This story can't be this good to everyone but for me its a rare gem. Its because I really like when story not super serious and have some funny or relaxing moments and I like when you reading novel from different POV, no mater third or first person, because it helps to understand story and you get to feel reactions and perspective of the charatecters.

Now, to the rating.

I prefer my rating fair without bias and emotions as much as i can.

 

Style: like I said, novels with many POV is the things that I like, there some minor problems that I can't remember, but overall its pretty solid, but not exraordinary, so 4/5

 

Grammar: I am not native English speaker and my english far from perfect, but sometimes there some mistake appear or other problems, but its perfectly readable and you can enjoy it without problems, so 4/5

 

Story: thats where the story shine: enjoyable, goodpaced with some twists. And most importanly you don't feel like characters always need to super rush everywhere, to take revenge, to grow strong. No, there sometimes rush like in a every good story, but its not make you feel stressed. Some deaths(actually a lot of deaths, but most unimportant), some sad moments, but its a dungeon story - people die for wealth and power! About romance I personally don't really care, its cringe or stresfull in novels pretty often, but there a potential and some moments but not there yet.

The most important thing is that still fells like only start of the story and there A LOT more what can be writed and developed. The problems is author sometimes not plan far ahead or changes his mind about some developments, or tries too hard to make shenenigans behind the scenes, maybe there some pressure readers, editors or someone else, MORE CONFIDENTS IN YOUR STORY, MAKE IT SO YOU LIKE IT! Example: There was finally some really interesting potential development of prologue chapter but author later changed it (I think for the book), but at least about it readers were informed. We need more connections with prologue chapter, or it was changed too? But anyway, overall its really good and absorbing story that you want more of, so 4.5/5

Charaters: good, enjoyable charaters with different characters, desires and views, no annoing characters exept one to me. There some problems when MC suposse to not remember a lot of thing or behave in certain way, but with that author given himself pretty blurry border, so 4.5/5

Overall: 4.5/5

Advice for author if he still plan to continue: try to not look back and fix plot holes or plots if its not important. From my observations its very often result in stress for author and desire to stop writing because its not perfect. Authors often gets better, but start of novel remains the same. When you try to fix its often the end of novel or hiatus.

almost 0 game elements ;-; just what i prefer

It gradually loses it's luster what i'm trying to say is that a dungeon is mostly preffered with a game-like system like a shop or a mana creation board or something Dungeon Heart indeed said he was inspired by this story but i can't see anything note worthy to point out expect that i really enjoyed the first arc but the rest kinda went slow ,i prefer a faster kind of story which ends in about 100-250 chapters and small chapters about 1500-2400 letters .I could recommend this story as a new kind of inspiration but i wouldn't read it again why? because it was boring after the second half of the second arc it really became luckluster almost boring .I could say though the grammar is alot better than other novels maybe this story could be better if you made a slime dungeon with slime golems ,slime soldiers maybe some kind of human - like structure for the slimes, the worst part about this story is propably the start which made 0 sense and at the end of the first arc which remembered some memories before he transmigrated/reincarnated which really was a downside but the last and final that ruined the story is that you never tried to explain how big is the kingdom , the other kingdoms etc. blah blah blah you know WORLD BUILDIND well i won't be harsh cause this is propably an amateur made story and i kinda have higher demands when it comes to game oriented things well dungeon is something i would prefer it to be a slime kingdom it could be more interesting and the world building could develop more effieciently

Interesting but Inconsistent

I understand that this is a draft edition and that most of the required changes were (hopefully) made in the final editions that made it to Amazon. I'll start off by saying that the plot is a neat idea; not a lot of people can stick with a dungeon story like this. The style is mostly in a kind of fun-loving tone. Decent characters, and a lot of them, although some could use some more fleshing out. Throughout there are a lot of changes made in later chapters that aren't carried back to past chapters, leaving people fairly confused. I'll attribute that to it being a draft and readily available in the purchased books.

Grammar is what I've found to be the worst part of this story. There are tons of errors in every chapter, from mispellings to entirely wrong words. One off the worst is how canonically "wargs" are a very very bad thing to have around, while "worgs" aren't as big a deal (1st book, "The Stones Start to Roll"). Many times throughout the books the Twins are referred to as wargs instead of worgs, which speaks to me of poor attention to detail, especially to something that was implied to be so important.

If you can ignore the many errors then it's a decent enough story for a draft. Sit back and enjoy the goofiness, dungeon building, and ocassional morbid moment (slimes gotta eat too you know.)

Would recommend this to anyone looking to read a dungeon core book was my intro into this type of book and can't get enough of this genre. That being said slime dungeon chronicles is a very fun read I devoured all 4 of the books they didn't last a day once I had them very interesting takes on slimes and their evolutions.
