Just curious if anyone is reading / listening to this series by Dakota Krout. The story is about how a dungeon is born and grows - sound familiar? Currently 3 books, 1) Dungeon Born, 2) Dungeon Madness, and 3) Dungeon Calamity.

So kind of like the ecology of a dungeon?
Does it feel as if it's based off a role playing system (IE, authours influences)?

Both the dungeon and the people entering the dungeon learn and get stronger over time. There are actually magic levels and rankings that all go through. I've only listened to the first two books, I don't think the third book is available on audible yet.

Different point of view, and more in line with role-playing than most books.

Finally had some time to read this book, really good stuff. Love how it switches between the explorers and the dungeon's point of view. Have to get the second one now! Thanks for the recommendation.

Happy to hear you enjoyed it. When you finish the series, there is a new series called the Ritualist. It is somewhat similar, but in this case virtual reality is taken to the extreme and someone is kind of drawn into a game full time.
