Making a list of all "I am a Dungeon" type novels.

#1
I really like this new wave of novels where the protagonist turns into a dungeon/dungeon master. I want to read as many as possble so if anyone has a link to one please post it.

Bound Dungeon 
Pretty good novel where MC was a mage apprentice but was turn into a dungeon core by a neromancer. Only 21 chapters but it is one of the best i found so far. Highly recommend.

Devious dungeon
Tried to turn himself into a god but instead indeed up as a dungeon core. Only 12 chapters but high word count per chapter. Also fairly good.

Mystery of the dungeon
Researchers purposely create dungeons to study them. Most of story is from one of the created dungeon's pov. 

Lair
Unique in that it is from the POV of a dungeon monster that grows and learns. Currently author put it on hold and is undergoing rewrite it seems.

Mikayla the dungeon
Have yet to read this. Can't give impression.

Rise of the dungeon
Kid dies but turns into a dungeon. Found it be be just ok, never finished it. 

Rise of the Goblin Dungeon
Inspired by Japanese novels and games it seems. Guy becomes dungeon after playing lots of dungeon lord type games.

Gaia Awakens
Guy dies and becomes a dungeon core. Different in that there is no game like system that allows cores to summon monsters. they have to make the monsters themselves.


Dungeon Hunter (not on RR)
Demon lords come to earth and take control of dungeons. MC is a demon and it is mostly about him becoming top demon but there is lots of dungeon management in there.

Here's one, but from what I can remember it isn't completely focused on dungeon management completely. It should be the beginning section that should be a bit about it. This is the first novel that came to my mind when I saw this post.
I Reincarnated as a Magic Academy!

Ancient Dreams is an excellent series, currently two books on kindle unlimited. Semi-Professional quality.

Hm... I'll just leave my impressions about a few Dungeon stories that have been posted.

Quote:
Mikayla the dungeon
Have yet to read this. Can't give impression.

This story has a very strong Focus on growing as a dungeon core and developing a dungeon core's abilities. She gets started on creating monsters pretty late. Sadly the author screwed up pretty hard introducing new characters, which kinda makes it look like she? worked through her relationship troubles in the story.

Basically very slow development and then it gets weird.
Quote:
Gaia Awakens
Guy dies and becomes a dungeon core. Different in that there is no game like system that allows cores to summon monsters. they have to make the monsters themselves.

Basically as the description says. It's just that the guy becomes a monster too. So basically it's another amoral sociopath power level diary, only without litrpg windows.

If you like that kind of story it's good, otherwise rather meh. Also seems to be dead/finished.

Cultivating Dungeon
http://royalroadl.com/fiction/7318

Former cultivation master reincarnates as a dungeon. But the new world has mana instead of Qi, so his techniques don't work properly. The world itself also forces him to confirm to its level system. The MC is likeable, not a huge monster. The world seems pretty well developed and has rather credible antagonists. The story seems dead though.
Quote:
I am a Magic Academy
http://thesylthorian.com/wn-ma/

Basically a Rumanian guy reincarnates as a dungeon. But he's a Frankenstein dungeon core, pieced together by the headmaster of a magic academy. He then befriends and protects (some of) the teachers and students, learns more about being a dungeon, repairs the school and fights some intruders.
Then the teachers convince him to build a dungeon for training. Things escalate a bit. A monstrous enemy appears that the Dungeon guy only barely manages to defeat. Afterwards they flee by teleporting away.

And that's where the interesting part of the story is basically over. At that point it's just the overpowered protagonist being a humanoid dungeon core that walks through the world and kicks ass, gets a harem, levels up to even more overpowered (peerless), loses his morals and after 60 chapters still hasn't gotten started on building another magic academy.

Basically a very good start, but afterwards it gets progressively shitty. If this was a published series, book 1 would be great, but afterwards it breaks down.

Quote:
City Dungeon
http://royalroadl.com/fiction/11037

German guy gets reincarnated. Negotiates with the goddess of dungeons to be a city planner dungeon instead of a monster dungeon. He succeeds, but the situation escalates a lot. Outsiders attack his city and he becomes part of a transuniversial conflict.

Good story if you like "nice" Dungeons, but the Grammar is not so great and the pacing could be better. The story also seems dead.

Quote:
Haven in a Dangerous World
https://royalroadl.com/fiction/12373/haven-in-a-dangerous-world

This is also a reincarnation story. Basically a girl reincarnates as a nice dungeon into a hostile world and builds up from basically zero resources.

Very interesting start, but the author seemingly ran out of ideas in between and escalated too fast. The world-building is interesting, but the story progression could have been handled better.
Overall a good dungeon story, though a bit disappointing since it could have been great.
