The Island, as seen on the cover of Chapter 22.

The Island ( Shima?, lit. 'island')[1] is an island situated off the coast of Kahka Brud. It is the location of a compound-style dungeon (also referred to as The Island) that is the main setting of Delicious in Dungeon.[2]

Overview[edit | edit source]

Located on the island are the Governor's Mansion, the Main Street and Merini Village. The dungeon is located near Merini Village. Near the dungeon, there is a local resurrection center situated underneath a temple.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

In the past, the island belonged to elves, dwarves and humans, who all called it by various names, but it is now known simply as 'The Island'. At one point there was a war between the elves and dwarves (and gnomes) that split the island into east and west, with the dwarves using their tunnels underground to hide. After the war, the dwarves continued digging their tunnels and eventually discovered the dungeon.[1] It was discovered in 507.[2]

The dungeon on the island was said to have been created by a Lunatic Magician, having sealed away a once splendid country fit with a golden castle.[3] Elven glyphs are written on the walls of the dungeon, all in the same handwriting, indicating that the Lunatic Magician is likely an elf.[1] The dungeon's ecosystem apparently is able to take into account the defeat of monsters by adventurers, as without them, the monsters would be able spill out onto the surface.[4] Due to the mysterious ability to resurrect the dead inside the dungeon, it is theorized that there is a spell of immortality cast on the dungeon that can affix the soul to the body, and knowledge of how it works is highly prized.[1]

The area above the dungeon was once an olive producing region.[5]

As of the present, there is no longer any treasure on the top three floors, coupled with an increase in lowlifes and the appearance of orcs on higher levels than previously seen.[1]

Levels[edit | edit source]

The dungeon is separated into different levels, which have different characteristics.

Level 1[edit | edit source]

The uppermost level of the dungeon. Once the graveyard of the nearby village, the discovery of the dungeon resulted in it filling with merchants and adventurers.[3]

Monsters known to inhabit this level include:

Level 2[edit | edit source]

The level is filled with tall trees and towers, linked by wooden bridges. It is theorized by scholars that the area is the top of the golden castle sealed away by the Lunatic Magician.[6]

Monsters known to inhabit this level include:

Level 3[edit | edit source]

The entrance to the Golden Castle, now moldy and covered in dust. Footsteps can be heard, but it is unclear if they are those of fellow adventurers or the undead. Most monsters on this level are undead, rotting or skeletal. There are water fountains in the shape of lion's heads throughout the level. There are also toilets in the busier areas, which have been maintained by Senshi for many years.[9]

Senshi's base camp is located here.[9] There are also merchants on this level, but their clientele tend to be fairly shady.[10]

Monsters known to inhabit this level include:

Level 4[edit | edit source]

The level is a cave made up of the castle and an underground lake. The water has absorbed magical energy and glows faintly. At the bottom of the lake is the castle town.[15]

Monsters known to inhabit this level include:

Level 5[edit | edit source]

The exit of the Golden Castle and the entrance to the castle town, which contain evidence of their former splendor. The streets often magically rearrange themselves, making navigation difficult. The orcs' former home is located here.[22] There is an overgrown graveyard attached to the town that is populated by Dryads.

Monsters known to inhabit this level include:

Level 6[edit | edit source]

A network of underground waterways built using the mining tunnels of dwarves.[27] It is stated that most monsters on this floor use mental attacks.[28] This level was once hot and humid,[29] but is now cold and snowy.[30]

Monsters known to inhabit this level include:

Deepest part of the dungeon[edit | edit source]

An old dwarven defensive site, filled with pipes, machinery and mechanical contraptions located past a large door with no visible lock. The level is fairly warm.[36] Further onward is an ancient dwarven city, hewn from the side of a cliff face, with giant fungi sprouting in some areas.[37]

Monsters known to inhabit this area are:

Lunatic Magician's House[edit | edit source]

A two-story cottage located deep within the dungeon, presumed to be the residence of the Lunatic Magician.[40] The cottage looks as if it has been unattended for hundreds of years.[41] It contains a hall of broken mirrors,[42], a dining room with walls covered in Living Paintings,[43] a bedroom in disarray and a disorganized library.[44] Seated in the dining room are the living yet soulless bodies of what seems to be the royal family of the Golden Castle, including Yaad.[45]

Monsters known to inhabit this area and its surroundings are:

Golden Castle Village[edit | edit source]

An agricultural village located somewhere in the dungeon. The immortal residents of the Golden Castle have been living here for at least 400 years. In this area, there is some kind of magical barrier in place that robs monsters of their aggression.[48]

Monsters known to inhabit the area are:
