Master of Dungeons

Master of Dungeons

by Viken

-This is my first attempt at uploading a story I created. It is not a fanfic, but uses several systems from other stories I've read. I hope you enjoy, and feel free to leave comments or criticisms as appropriate. Thank you.-

Edwin Cast was your (mostly) regular guy living and working in Kentucky. He had a knack for working, and was always bouncing from job to job as fancy took him. Insatiably curious, he was always on the look out for new or interesting information or things to do. You could say he was a 'hard-work fanatic'.

But with an ailing mother and the inability to realize that he was being shunned by those considered his 'betters', he met his mortal end at the hands of those people who he replaced. Beaten to death on the same day his mother died, he's soon pulled from the void into a world beyond his own imagination.

Reborn into a fantasy world as the last 'Demon Lord', Edwin is expected to rule over a vast number of races, each of which are considered 'monsters' and demon-kin by the zealous human kingdoms of the world. And if that wasn't enough, the only way to progress and make ends meat is to build and control 'Dungeons' for the righteous humans to invade!

Edwin will have to give it his all in a world he never expected even existed, and will have to learn to survive with his wits and growing power in order to establish something resembling peace in the war-torn lands of Eternia.

-NOTE: I'm still in the process of working on the storyline, characters, and abilities that will be presented. A large number of themes are planned, and mature/adult content is planned. The story may also be a bit slow in some cases, so please bare with me. Thanks again!

-NOTE: People have been mentioning the rough grammar and spelling errors that come with my posts; and while I've said so in the forum comments, I'm going to post it here as well. This is all basically a rough draft. I post the chapters as I write them, with only a spell-check for accuracy. None of the chapters are proofread. Once people point out blatant errors, I try to correct them; but otherwise I'm more interested in writing.

If anyone wishes to proofread my work, shoot me a PM on the forums! Thanks again.

 Now, this is not a typical RE FF, this is in a totally different world (I think).


This writer really sucks me into the story, I totally enjoy reading this.


Of course every author and story has flaws, and this one is no exception.


Every now and then you come across a small grammar error  and ect.


But on the whole I feel that if this author keeps at it and does not drop this series that this will become one of the top 20 FF on this site! 


Great Story with a different perfecptive makes this Truely Unqiue

This story is really interesting with the flip side being told and from the way the setting it laed out its is refreshing and the pace is very good for its genre.


Grammer is solid with some mistakes but nothing that breaks the story.


Characters are really good, though obviously we don't know too much about many of them the story has been layed out  with lots of room for that to develop well. (Personally I hope he gets married early in the story HAREM LIFE GO).

Style is solid 5 star, because it fits the writing very well and it allows the reader to grasp everything.


The best part about this story/writing is simply the CONCEPT of the MC and the setting match perfectly. It bring a whole new perspectiive the recarniation genre which is great.


Only downside is there aren't a lot of chapters or frequent updates =( (which makes means wish for more content).



Love it! so much potential!

Ive always loved the dungeon keeper series, and the intricacies that are possible with this dungeon theme is mind boggling. I cant wait to read more of your stories and how he makes more and more dungeons! Perhaps he can also make dungeons for the masses that adventurers have no hope for passing at all. a dungeon with a combination of cooking, household puzzles, etc whose reward would be mundane enchanted everyday items? enchanted lamps! ever burning controllable frying pans  and the like.


Hope to see you continue!


A good read with some interesting ideas.

An unusual twist of reincarnation theme, with some interesting ideas.

Jottenhiem hime is somewhat cute/amusing to say the least ... and that Lamia, ha, that was one bloody stunt she pulled in front of all that crowd >_<


This is too good… I wish I was gifted with the writing ability of Viken…

A Cool Twist on a Original Reincarnation Story with Potential to be in the Top 5 on this site…

Very Much Thankyou… Tehe :)


this has some potential well done

i feel this FF is on a roll you just need to find the hill and roll it down fast!

The Iron Dragon

Very Interesting and well written

This is simply too good.

Your style, your story, your grammar , your characters ... they all suck me in wanting for more .

Hell guys if you ever end up here make sure to read the fiction, you won't regret it one bit :D


Quite the nice plot going on, although it's still in the early stages of development it is a nice read and commendable that you aren't skimming over it.  I look forward to your story's progression and how Edwin advances. :)


hope theres more coming soon cause i want to see how the saw mill there gonna make comes out...


Such an incredibly and fascinating idea. You should definitely continue writing this. Although using reincarnation as a theme is rather outdated as there are many who tries to use such route, the idea of using dungeons instead of just "duking it out" is very refreshing. Keep up the good work. I'll be following you.
