Description

Sandra had been a merchant traveling through the human lands of Muriel, though that wouldn’t have been her chosen profession. 

What she would’ve loved to become was a crafter, producing wondrous creations with her own two hands; however, she didn’t want to become a master in just one craft - she was interested in them all. 

Unfortunately, Sandra was born with a deformity in her hands that made them appear frozen in a claw-like pose; as a result, she couldn’t grip anything with any sort of strength or dexterity, meaning that she wasn’t able craft anything but the most simple of things that required very little in the way of hand-based manipulation. To top it off, while most people could access and manipulate at least one or two of the basic elemental energies, she could see them all - but was unable to manipulate a single one. 

Despite these setbacks, Sandra spent the majority of her 26 years of life visually learning the processes, techniques, and secret formulas for every aspect of crafting she could discover. And it was that pursuit of knowledge that ultimately led to her untimely death. 

Reborn in the shape of a tiny Dungeon Core, Sandra learned about the purpose behind dungeons and Cores from an assigned dungeon helper; at the same time, she also discovered that she had much more freedom than most other Dungeon Cores. 

The repercussions of her mere existence could end up being far-reaching, but the most important thing she learned had nothing to do with the other Cores, the different races, or even the real purpose behind her being brought back to life as a strange glowing gem. Sandra didn’t care about any of that, though - all she cared about was that she could finally do some crafting.

This Dungeon Core story contains LitRPG/GameLit elements such as statistics and leveling and a heavy crafting emphasis. No profanity and no harems.

great story really enjoyed it.

I enjoy fantasy novels and especially ones that involve settlement development. so being a dungeon development was a nice spin. interested to see where the creator aspect comes in. I'm not a religious person but it adds a level of mystery. keep up the great work and can't wait to read the second one.

meh

I enjoyed hearing about a 'female' dungeon core, but I found the narrator boring and monotone. Crafters Dungeon has an interesting twist to the dungeon core trope in that this dungeon is trying to work with the sentient races rather than ultimately working for it's own gain and leads to an ultimately more likable and sympathetic main character. However it also fell into the pit hole trap of any action or momentum being bookended by long boring fact sheets that may be interesting to read on paper but are a huge drawback in the audio format.

Worthwhile investment

Slow to start but good once it gets going it's pretty good. The main character is a genuinely nice person that I really fell in love with. Also I loved hearing from a disabled main character!

I like it.

This is my first dungeon core and I already love this genre.🙂
It would be neat if a story had a core as a side character or antagonist.🤔

original take on my favorite genre (SPOILERS)

story setting was Good. loved the unique dungeon system and how it was progressing. would love if you went into more detail about the crafting process itself.

the main character seems a little too calm in my opinion from having just spent 250 or so years in complete isolation, although her being a special case with this Creator is a totally plausible answer to this.


lastly the voice actor lacked emotion for me and cant realy do a male voice.

This series has great potential and I will be buying the next release

Completely excellent top notch Dungeon Core/ 1flaw

So I have listened to maybe a dozen of Jonathan Brooks books and they are all great, he tells a fun fast paced story and there is usually a few moral questions and a bunch of creative problem solving, it's always engrossing. Almost everything about book was fantastic. The reason he gets a 4star in story for this book is because of the material lists,

The crafting system at it's simplest form is a variety of material types ranging in sizes with a minimum and maximum mana capacity and a material cost combined with a creature type or item type to make a thing, and whenever the dungeon learn some new materials we get a list the reads something like this

"tiny copper orb minimum mana 10 maximum mana 25 material cost 50, small copper orb minimum mana 25 maximum mana 50 material cost 100, medium copper orb minimum mana 100 maximum mana 200 material cost large copper orb minimum mana xxx maximum mana xxx material cost xxx,

tiny Silver orb minimum mana xxx maximum mana xxx material cost xxx, small Silver orb minimum mana xxx maximum mana xxx material cost xxx, medium Silver orb minimum mana xxx maximum mana xxx material cost large Silver orb minimum mana xxx maximum mana xxx material cost xxx,

tiny gold orb minimum mana xxx maximum mana xxx material cost xxx, small gold orb minimum mana xxx maximum mana xxx material cost xxx, medium gold orb minimum mana xxx maximum mana xxx material cost large gold orb minimum mana xxx maximum mana xxx material cost xxx,"

etc ... for however many material have been accumulated,

This is the only real flaw with this book as an audio format, I am certain that in paper format this is a well organized chart that you can skim and if you want to can use as a reference chart and study in detail or skip over easily, but in audio it is a monotonous slog that you will find yourself trying to skip through until they get to the new pieces of information.

Like I said earlier everything else about this book is completely great, the narrator has pleasant voice, and good characterization, the characters themselves are interesting, and pretty likable, The story so far is winding up to be an involved political trade association through intermediary allies of the dungeon. It's going to be a blast,

Hopefully in the second book he'll abridge the entries or place them conveniently to be skipped

Decent story, poor narrator

The story in and of itself was pretty good. however, Cooksey, the narrator, made it unpleasant. pretty much any time she attempted to do any "voices" I cringed internally (sometimes externally too). she attempted to do them during any dialogue, unfortunately this made me start to detest any other characters besides the dungeon... well series have replaced narrators before, so I'll sleep my fingers crossed for this one's sequel!

really enjoyable

I normally don't like dungeon core books but the unique crafting and the character development make this book very enjoyable.

Good story but somewhat disappointing narration

Jonathan Brooks is a new and talented author. I’ve read most of his books on dungeon / station cores and they are all pretty good.

I’m marking this down due to the poor narration. The intonation, pacing and inflection were all poor. E.g. Pausing mid-sentence with lots of weird inflections on the end of words was distracting throughout.

Not Bad. Not Great.

As the headline implies. This wasn’t a bad book. The story was slow to build up and to build a solid foundation, which in my belief was never quite accomplished. I love crafting, dungeon building, core building, etc. so this book’s genre isn’t outside of the realm of what I enjoy.
This book though. Repeats and repeats and repeats stats that are cumbersome, long and completely unnecessary for the crafting aspect. Mostly this wouldn’t be an issue if it wasn’t the repetition of the same basic building blocks to crafting that literally read out like a DND stat page that you don’t need to know for the end result. I’d prefer for a one time explanation of the material, then explain the crafting process more. It just felt like padding for the books time/pages.
The overall character development, though slow, was enjoyable, just not nearly in-depth enough.
Months go by and it feels like a grind without much detail. This author is so much better than this book. I look forward to book 2, in hopes that the foundation and errors are fixed. But book 1, was a struggle to complete and to keep interested in.

Excellent Story with a fresh approach to the genre

Mr. Brooks is King of the Dungeoncore right now as far as I am concerned. He spits out these dungeon books left and right, up down. This time he brings you the Crafter’s Dungeon. Low and behold, He brings a fresh approach to the genre that a lot of folks are going to like a lot. Coming into the book, I was wondering how he would pull off a crafting and dungeon core story. He certainly does and he does it very well. It makes a lot of sense too. It doesn’t feel like it is something forced in so he can get readers who like crafting books. It is a rather brilliant approach.

One thing I really liked about this book, is that the dungeon building and crafting are the main focus. I have read dungeon cores before that spend too much time outside of a dungeon doing things that don’t interest me. Some folks enjoy that but I don’t. 90% of this story is in the dungeon. That may bore some readers because there is a lot of the book where Sandra just talks to herself (or in her head). She does have the usual assistant that pops up in every dungeon core that gives her direction but she leaves off and on during the story. I like this intense dungeon focus…some may not. There is a lot of litrpg elements here. A lot of stats, a lot of crafting recipes and ingredient gathering, trap designs, enemy designs etc…

Now on to the problem that I had with the audiobook – the narration leaves much to be desired. I am not familiar with Ms Cooksey, but looking at her previous projects this is her first litrpg. She did a serviceable job. She was not bad…she was not great…she was ok. She seemed to improve as the audiobook went on or maybe I just got used to her. She can be very monotone at times. There are orcs in the book and she didn’t quite hit the mark with their voices. I understand that it can’t be easy with a female narrator, but I felt she could have done a bit better with some research. She doesn’t ruin the book by any means. She just holds it back a bit.

I give Crafter’s Dungeon an 8.25. I really enjoyed the story. If the narration had been a bit better that score would have gone up to an 8.75 potentially. This is a story that shouldn’t be missed whether you do the audio or e-book. I really look forward to the 2nd one.

Nice story of an early world/dungeons development

The humanity of this story line was compelling. An interesting take on a pacifist dungeon which sounds oxymoronic, but it works. Audiobook version gets weighed down by the stats read outs in every development stage. While I enjoyed the book, it feels like the first 3 chapters of an adventure novel that were drawn out to the point of borderline boring. Only upside was the companionship that was found eventually.

Crafting and dungeons!

Great story and narration!

A crafting obsessed young woman meets a horrific fate, and is reborn as a dungeon core. Can her know how save four sentient races on the brink off extinction?

This is a fun and well developed adventure. If you like crafting or base building stories you will definitely enjoy this book. This story is engaging and has great characters, a well developed world and an interesting magic system.

I loved this book and am eagerly waiting the next book in the series!

Great first book

I loved how different it was to other books in this genre I've read, how it focused on a dungeon making items with its own hands.
