So far so good. The dungeon story with unique own twist, while still in line with the genre. 

The main character background - as a legendary dwarf blacksmith - before becoming the dungeon, gives the story a chance to stand out.

He is a proud dwarven crafter who now has somewhat cheated death and became dungeon. He does carry over his personality and knowledge which should make things interesting in the future.

Also the way he expands and evolves his dungeon is something you would expect from a master craftsman. Without rush but with a solid plan. 

I'm still quite curious how the other character - the former dungeon now known as Echo will turn out. In a way in the beginning it was "dungeon fairy" replacement sort of thing - as a former dungeon who can share the knowledge and experience with MC. But later evolves into something more original.

The story is updated regularly, and the chapter size seems rather larger than most other works on this site. Grammar and style is fine. The plot so far is promising, and it seems author has planed ahead and has a clear direction in which it will be going.

Best story ever! A must read!

I have been an avid reader of books ever since I was in preschool, yet among the hundreds of novels I have read, this one easily is my favorite.

Story: The plot is brilliant. Instead of a useless 30 year old stay at home loser reincarnating as a dungeon with a harem of busty women, this story takes a much better approach, with a 700 year old Legendary Crafter dwarf reincarnating as a dungeon. Adventurers try to capture the dungeon, and they marvel at the majesty of the dungeon every time.

 

Style: The style is brilliant. It flows effortlessly from 1st person to 3rd person, weaving in and out of points of view. A description of an aspect of a dungeon takes one paragraph in Smit's view, but through the adventurers' POVs takes many paragraphs to explain the intricate designs of the dungeon. Really beautiful writing and great word choices.

 

Grammar: Quite some grammar errors, but nothing that obstructs the reader's understanding of the story.

 

Characters: Amazing characters. Every single character I enjoy learning about, and every character is enjoyable. I especially enjoy the kobold chief, Pala, with his undying loyalty and determination to please Father (Smit).

is it weird that when i read about him humming i imagined songs from LotR?

it would be cool if that becomes a habit of his, singing/humming ancient songs in forgotten languages that whisper on the wind for miles.

THIS AINT UR TYPICAL DUNGEON STORY

At only 15 chapters this story quite beautifully written. The reader can feel the work that went into each chapter and it leaves you with a deep sense of satisfaction. The story is not too rushed and is set at a moderate pace with no information dumps along the way. Each POV is masterfully done to give the reader information about the new world. One of the greatest works I have seen on this site and a must read I would recommend to anyone.

This could be very, very good...

In short : an artist builds a dungeon on cheat mode.

He is OP, of course, but the author has a real talent for describing atmosphere. You can FEEL the eeriness and majesty of the dungeon under construction.

Usually dungeon stories are cases of a human from earth reincarnating into one with no reason as to why they somehow remember their past life (or worse, a random God with stupid reasons). Here we have a case where a 730 year old dwarf native of the fantasy world dies and instead of quietly going to the afterlife he possesses an injured dungeon heart. The whole thing flows logically and feels like a real book instead of some horrible fanfic self insert power fantasy.

The dwarf dungeon in question then builds himself a uniquely dwarven dungeon, everything must be masterwork, beautifully sculpted walls, etc. The descriptions are very pleasing. I don't know where the author will go with this long term, but so far I am very satisified with the story.

Familiar but unique and interesting

I love how the MC is taking so much pride and work into making his dungeon and making it this beautiful place instead of just focusing on how to kill people to gain power. Really looking forward to how this will work out.

Also I really want to see how people react if they are inside the dungeon when  he starts singing one of his songs. As another reviewer said I would like to see that become a regular thing.

Okay so I'm not used to reviews only write them to motivate author to not give up on the story. So far (chap12) it is intriguing. No mistakes that were glaringly obvious. His creatures though murderous seem like cute children. Overall can't wait to see what's gonna happen in the future.

Humming and song gave this story amazing atmosphere kinda like Tolkien's books. Hope to see(hear?) more.
