Even though Re-incarnation concept is the same.. the way you developed the story till now is really unique.. MC is not meek nor arrogant, whole being humble. Even though MC is OP he doesn't show off, it's pace is also quite nice. and i am hoping you can release at lest a chapter daily (only hope though XD). and your story doesn't have grammatical mistakes and easily readable,and you wrote in a way that reader don't lose interest in the story so far. it's one of the best stories i have read.. Thanks for the story
EDIT: I think someday this Author will reemerge like the story's namesake, proving himself a Conqueror by achieving the best-rated #1 once again. For now he remains forgotten, but not forever. #WEREMEMBER
To me, this is the best story that this website have. And that is because it contains all of the regular clichês that you will normally see in this website's novels but delivers it in a refreshing and original form.
First of all, the main concept: reincarnation. I don't like this idea. I think it is silly and unnecessary in most of the novels. This is an exception. What normally happens that pisses me off is the fact that the MC reincarnates and thus is born with some sort of advantages over other peoples of this world but his past life don't really matter. The life the MC had, the people he met and the things he has done don't affect the story.
But here, in Forgotten Conqueror, the past life of the MC plays a major role not just in who he is but in the setting of the world and the plot (since it becomes the MC's goal to discover his origins and discover the status of his past-life enemies).
Usually, the author redirect's the reader's attention of the motive of the reincarnation (or give a half-assed excuses for it to have happened) and starts a new chain of events that the MC has to face.
Not here: the MC seeks only to live his life with his beloved family while researching the history of the world, looking for the motive of his reincarnation and to finish the things he couldn't in his past life (a.k.a. facing an antagonist that was not revealed, yet).
Usually, the MC is overpowered but still manages to find struggles that require him to unleash some kind of hidden power and then finish off his enemies. Most times, the description of the MC's powers don't match his action when he is in danger, because although he is DESCRIBED AS OVERPOWER he really isn't. And that is fine with me. I like MC's that aren't overpower. What I don't like is this discrepancy in the description and plot, that is usually fixed by the author giving some kind of excuse for his enemy being an exception to the beforehand mentioned power-above-all of the MC.
But not here. Kaidus is described as a higher-being and act as such. He is strong, smart and is always ready to finish off his opponents with his full power. His life is never at stake. When he finds some kind of struggle is just to keep his identity a secret. And that is because he IS OVERPOWER not just DESCRIBED AS OVERPOWER and then faced with even more powerful enemies.
Those things together with gorgeous world building made by the author made me fall deeply in love with this novel. The only thing I could suggest is for the author to give a little more depth to the supporting characters (a.k.a. his family and friends).
Regarding other reviews:
@Sylth: You've made a serious mistake regarding the plot of this series. Kaidus haven't lived 20 lives. What happened is that he was born 20 times and killed at his birth, exactly for the motive of him not being able to control his mana at birth and thus having white hair. That is why, when he finally gets to live, such a long time has already passed. Also, you say that he shouldn't obey other people because he is utterly powerful. That is simply not how things work in life. If you think life that you really should try to change that mindset, because if you get some kind of power in your life people will not like you. He has power but he doesn't have to show off this fact. Actually, as long that it doesn't hurt his family or friends, Kaidus tries to live a normal life, seeking only knowledge. If he started to act in his everyday like the higher-being that he is, he would not be able to live the ordinary and quiet life with his family (one that he likes). By acting normal in his college he gets to continue to live a normal life with his family AND is able to research for his past. He doesn't do things just because he is told to, he does them because they are good for him. And regarding his father, Troyle, the injury he suffered doesn't make him useless. I don't know if you have ever had an injury, but the fact is that when you do, in most of the cases it doesn't make you like a disabled person. It just makes you worse than you were. The fact that Troyle was a top-tier mercenary enabled him to have some degree of skill even with an injured shoulder. I think that is all.
@boridu: Well... everyone has their tastes. But I don't think even if you don't like the novel you should say those things, because they simply are not true. If you really believe them you should read again and work hard you your interpretation skills.
I finaly registered on royal road, after blazing trough your ff in about 5 hours (from 1 am to 6 am in the morning) to thank you properly for the story and the wonderful time I had reading it.
As many have mentioned the world is very unique and hard to grasp at first, the story starts dark with many dead people, but so did humanity troughout it's early history! I like the mature writing style,and the very human side of the charakters, with all their fear, jealousy, anxiety and anger.
Some have pointed out, that the reincarnation genre is already often used and nothing new, but so was the idea of a young gifted boy with magical abilitys attending school and many of us still liked Harry Potter! So it's not always about original ideas, but what you do with them and how you can captivate your readers in sharing the feelings of the characters, which in my humble opinion the author did very well.
Please keep up the good work and I hope you like the token of appreciation i left you via the new option !
(and please excuse my grammatical errors if I made any, for english is not my native tongue and I am writing this from my smartphone ^^)
I'm really enjoying reading this. The combination of your style and grammar make it easy and fun to read. The story is interesting, it's not going to fast or slow, just the right thing. Im hoping to see you uploading this story for a long time
its weird your ff not in best rated. Well your story is interesting one and the MC clearly has unique character. I hope you continue your story more!
Forgotten conqueror is a well written story with decent and engaging characters in a moderately engaging world. It contains a good mix of action , drama and character development. The character development suffers though because every character is either perfect moral superman or a mustache twirling villain begging to be killed. Both the main character and the reader will near instantly recognize them as they are introduced, making character development unnecessary.
The author does a decent job of world building. He succeeds in making a large and living world but fails somewhat in making it interesting. We never really want to learn more about the world as the only interesting or important character is the main one. A consequence of how overpowered he is.
Too cliche and basic power fantasy driven. We are told that the church had his previous twenty reincarnations murdered but never see any remnant of this church or how they knew to do so. It seems to exist as as part the main characters "tragic backstory" only to make it clear how ridiculously much hes suffered before the story even begins and so totally deserves to fly around the world like a bored godchild and killing all the cliche villains he can find on an epic quest to murder an entire global spanning organization because they annoyed him one time. Or maybe it's because he personally dislikes their philosophy of mages being in charge? Strange , considering he kills and tortures anyone who gets in his way with magic and goes out of his way to point out how powerful he is and how that means no one can tell him what to do.
The first book is basically a collection of short stories about how awesome the MC is, but is pretty fun, hence a relatively high score even if I ended up dropping this. The 2nd book, though, is extremely filler-ish, and takes everything that wasn't good in the first, like the side characters, over descriptions, and plot points that lead nowhere, and makes it worse; it's not pretty fun.
This was a fun serial just in terms of pure op character. Magic system wasn't especially well put together but it didn't feel necessary to flesh it all out for a while. The writing always felt pretty weak to me but it was a fun read. Once he leaves the starting city though it becomes boring as well with a much weaker supporting cast and I'm dropping it
Skip the prologue, it's mostly just talking about how badass the MC is.
Pros: likeable characters, OP toddler situations, that kind of thing.
Cons: the entirety of the prologue, some pretentious/edgy dialogue and descriptions, gives plenty of attention to irrelevant things, lots of boring action, every villain is the same "do you know who i am?!" kinda guy.
I've read until b2c54 and i think i'm going to drop this, the fun parts of the story is when the MC is a child and his interactions with his family, the MC's travels and stuff like that. But the author tries to give the story some tension and action with some villains and stuff and fails so hard it's somewhat impressive, the story boils down to loops of "Will the MC arrive in time" and the worst part is how boring the action is, not only does the author give plenty of attention to irrelevant characters that are going to be killed off, when the MC is going to kill a villain he doesn't just kill them, no, he has to have a elaborate fight and show the enemy who's boss and lots of times there is absolutely no reason to do that. The MC never shows much semblance of planning or intelligence and neither do the villains.
And don't even get me started on the "woe is me" and "i have darkness inside me" stuff. The tragic backstory serves well to kickstart the story, but that's it. Whenever it comes back it only drags the story down and the MC is none the better for it, he still only throws his overwhelming power around and he doesn't even do THAT well.
The story started off well with the war part. The mother was quite an interesting character as well but she gets pushed aside so that the story could continue into a school setting, great.
The mother still shows up now and then with the little sister but it\'s far less exciting. The story is confined to the school, which is a problem since it isn\'t very interesting, and the boy has no challenges he has to face. Everyone he meets is easily curb stomped.
Dropping this at chapter 20
