Blue Core is an occasionally-nsfw fantasy Web Serial Novel available here.

The protagonist, a regular Earth human awakens in a fantasy world, finding himself as a Dungeon Core in a RPG-Mechanics Verse.

As it turns out, three things separate the setting from the stereotypical LitRPG:

  • Dungeons are portrayed as more organic creatures than usual - rather than a fully magical crystal being, they consist of a network of biological tendrils protected by stone walls. They also cannot spawn monsters from thin air, but must gestate them in living hosts.
  • Advertisement:
  • There is a "Depletion" mechanic which can permanently reduce your RPG-Mechanics Verse powers. Most Dungeons siphon power from prisoners and anyone in the general area, causing this as a side-effect.
  • The Big Bads of the setting are "Mage Kings", mages which have taken control over a Dungeon and uses it as a power source, a minion dispenser, a mobile base, and a siege weapon.

Faced with a mildly Crapsack World, the protagonist must ensure his survival before striving to make the world a better place.


Blue Core contains examples of:

  • A Dungeon Is You - the protagonist
  • RPG-Mechanics Verse - regular people have a Status and Skills, and they may unlock a Class through their actions.
  • Naughty Tentacles - those averse to this trope may want to avoid chapters marked "nsfw", though at least things are kept consensual.

How well does it match the trope?
