Cultivating Dungeon

Cultivating Dungeon

by RexZShadow

He was once hailed as the Sage Emperor, although not the strongest in the world, he was the most knowledgeable. People traveled great distances to seek him for help with their cultivation. One day he suddenly died in an ancient ruin and when he thought it was all over he was given a second chance. He reincarnated, not as a human but as a dungeon! Join our MC as he is thrown into a world of magic and fantasy!

P.S. This is not an OP MC story, the MC will be starting from the beginning. While he has the benefit of his previous knowledge there are large drawbacks as well. I want to clarify this as my description can lead to the assumption of an OP MC.

Hello everyone, this is going to be my first book and I’m very excited to write it. I had many ideas I want to write about for a long time but never wrote the out. I started reading JPN LN then got into all the Chinese LN so was influence by both types. I already read a few ln about being a dungeon/dungeon master and really enjoy and one day suddenly had an idea. What if a cultivator was to become a dungeon? A lot of these dungeon ln all have someone with modern world experience become the dungeon so they all have this advantage of games but what if someone who is straight out of a xianxia novel instead? Someone who has no idea how a more medieval fantasy world works and have no idea what a dungeon even is. This give me a lot of fun things to write about and finally decide to try writing it share it with you all! I hope you all enjoy it and please leave comments/review telling me how I can improve.

Now at Chapter 6 and I like it

The story has an interesting angle.

 

I've read stories before about people reincarnating into dungeon cores.  This is the first time I've read a story about someone who tries to cultivate as a dungeon core.  What is more, he is also trying to get his dungeon monsters to cultivate!

 

With only six chapters written as of this review, I believe this story has a lot of potential.  It is true that the writing is a bit rough in spots.  With time, the quality of the writing will improve.  I look forward to reading more.  =)

A very engaging mix of two of my favorite genres!

I really like your style of telling the story with many POVs , but still finding a balance so that the story does not get overloaded. I also like the premise of your story where you mix two of my favorite genres (Xianxa and Dungeons). You have occasional Problems with Grammar, but they don't obstruct the flow of the story so I don't really mind them. I really like your characters with who one really can identify with.

Overall a very good story that keeps you coming back for more.

The pace is good and the people are interesting. The story itself is very interesting and funny at times.

There are also standard and unique dungeon options that are better explained than onther novels and that gives the feeling of being there insted of being confused because of the cheap explanations that i have read in other dungeon stories.

If you like dugeon stories you will love this one.

Have a great read :)

27 chapters in... and looking good so far... with some minor misstakes...

main character is the pinnacle of cultivation tips and knowlage about martial arts and is reincarnated as a dungeon core... ofc he will train his dungeon monsters... not really that orignal idea with reincarnating, cultivation, fantasy and so on but then again its a kinda unique combination of em and has some easily predictable things in some sections but still ofc theres more stuff you wont predict that you do so its a great read...

there are several ways the author has impared the "sage" from abusing his powers like hell (some of wich are really good excuses to limit the MC from being Too OP) but although the synopsis states that the story is not a "OP MC story" but the MC is still quite OP in several ways but like in every good novel theres always a greater force at play against the MC.

 

its indeed a interesting read and i personaly will be reading this series as long as it keeps going without droping in quality ....

that being said there are still some minor details that have forced me to lower the overall score from 5 stars to 4.5.

this work has some minor typos here and there....

minor details missing like for example: a sertain chapter explains adventure ranks G,F,D,C,B,A and S details a bit and E rank is skipped in the explanation

small formating issues for example: the Point of view changes feel like they get lost in the chapters other text with them being same sized text as everything else just with *-marks (*at the nearby forest*)

and some other minor details that dont really affect the overall scoring  from me that i would lower this more than the half a star

I like the idea to try something new by using japanese's and chinese's favorite genres and making it into a whole new one. You took both genres best parts and used them to make the story enjoyable while not making mish-mash. I hope you can go back and remove the grammar mistakes you made there.

This story has TONS of potential. With the daily updates so far coupled with the sizable chapters it's a good start. The story has a good flow and the plot has many routes it could go down and several sub-plots that could make great arcs. While the fight scenes haven't been numerous the few that are there are well thought out and not overly dramatic. Of the characters introduced so far Alice is perhaps the most disappointing in that she hasn't had enough time to flesh out her personality. I am very interested in how this story will do and I hope that there is MUCH more to come.

A diamond in the rough

It takes a lot for me to comment on a story. I’m usually really picky when it comes fanfics and have read plenty of bad ones which I can tell within a few chapters. However after reading this piece, I feel as if I am indebted to writing a review.

The author uses popular ideas from xianxia novels like cultivation and reincarnation, but then takes the unconventional approach as the mc reincarnates from a human to a dungeon. Not only that, but the author also knows how to write such a story. It isn't easy writing a story when the mc doesn’t have a body, but the author does it flawlessly.

Initially I also felt the quality of writing needed some improvement, but as it progresses on the writing and style improves dramatically, syncing themselves well with the story and plot.

And unlike many stories, I feel the flow is not is not too fast or slow and progresses without rushing past any important details.

What I like best is that the author has a steady pace at which he posts new chapters. It is difficult to say if this will continue in the future, but to the Author: PLEASE KEEP IT GOING =)!

Overall I have to say I’m really impressed with this story. Though it is fairly new and could use some refining, I definitely feel this is a jewel with a lot of potential that is definitely comparable to the top stories on RR. Can’t wait to read more!
