Vainqueur the Dragon

by Void Herald

Original ONGOING Adventure Comedy Fantasy Satire Anti-Hero Lead LitRPG Multiple Lead Characters Non-Human lead Strong Lead

Vainqueur Knightsbane is your average dragon: a giant, fire-breathing lizard who loves to take naps on his golden hoard, kidnap princesses for fun, and make the life of adventurers miserable. Vainqueur's only pleasure in life is to watch his treasure get bigger, one coin at a time.

So when a would-be thief turned unwilling minion tells him about "classes," "levels," and "quests," Vainqueur wonders if maybe, just maybe, he should consider a career change. 

After all, why bother hunting monsters for free when you can get paid for it?

A wonderful story about what happens when a dragon is introduced to the System and the concept of being paid to kill and loot things. A few minor typos here and there. A fun, lighthearted read.

Bonus points for having a non-reincarnated dragon main character.

I haven't had so much fun reading a story in a long 6 months and this was good 

Not really much of a review but if your looking for a good laf read this and so far I dont have many negatives to say about this only 1 and that is that the dragon is a little dim in the head

Well, first of all, let me say that I love this story. It's a fun, action-packed adventure about dragon named Vainqueur and his reluctant human minion, Victor, as they travel the world, slaying monsters, slaying humans, eating humans, and raking in as much gold as they can. Vainqueur and Victor have a good double act going, with lots of interesting people showing up for a bit. 

It's a good book if you're looking for a funny, light hearted comedy action fantasy mix. 

Keep in mind, you probably don't know where this story is going.

Thank you Void, please write more chapters

Reviewed at: 22: The Meat is Life

The grammar, spelling, and general technical skill this story is written with do their job wonderfully- they make the story more understandable, flow better and let me just leap in, in addition to doing their basic job of simply not breaking flow or immersion.

Edited because I noticed some mistakes, can't give 5 stars

 

Void has a certain flair to their works, it feels like a flight of fancy, yet my feet are still on some sort of surface. Kind of like jet-skiing or windsurfing. Which I like.

 

Despite being a whimsical, light hearted (in tone) comedy there is an emergent (background?) plot. It is emerging very tastefully and organically in my opinion, the hints are intriguing and what has been revealed captivating. I like the shape of the plot and think it adds a dimension to the story without taking away from its premise and style.

 

Finally,  the characters.  I love reading the character interactions and delight in the personalities on display- both of which fit in to the story's feel by being super-realistic whimsical caricatures of people that could exist.

Thank you Void. To anyone else reading this, try a few chapters

If gold is most valuable thing for a Dragon's hoard

Reviewed at: 18: Uninvited Guests

Then this story is gold for my hoard. 

Has a good twist for LitRPG subgenre. Characters are funny and feel fleshed out if they are not fodder. 

Grammar wise there wasn't any mistake that I could find or notice.

Author's style is attention-grabbing. 

So go on and read this story and have some fun. 

Also please consider joining as a minion.

It's actually rather funny - which is always a rare find. Even has internal logic, as far as such things go. 

Definitely recommended!

BEHOLD THE MAJESTY OF VAINQUEUR, MANLINGS, FOR HE IS THE GREATEST CHARACTER TO EVER LIVE, IN FANTASY OR REALITY. 

this is not a joke. i do not have a 5 ton dragon who can melt steel beams with his breath looking over my shoulder. I am not a hostage. i do not need help. I DO NOT NEED HELP

welcome to the story of the second calamity of man. In this story, a dragon's human minion is extorted into making him rich beyond any of the other dragons. This human was never asked to be an isekai protagonist, but became one anyways because a sentient dice thought it would be funny to put a person who was evil on earth into a world who just overcame one calamity in a demon king, and now has a second one coming- the greatest of all dragons. 

I don't think i've ever laughed so hard as i have over the all the things Victor has to go through. Seriously. you need to pick this up. It'll make your day a little brighter.

This book is mostly a comedy relating to standard tropes of fantasy, I would recommend it to people who are seeking a light-hearted book that is quite whimsical.

 

I would not recommend it to people who disklike overpowered mc's and people who dislike there not being a lot of emotional investment.

i like it, what can i do about it.

it's pretty interesting and i think the strong suit in this series, it's the comedy. the MC (the dragon) grows a bit during each chapter, and his human minion learns to goad it to do less destructive actions. 

there's a whole lot a fun in between. the only thing i'm worried about it's the end game or the final objetive, since i don't really see a clear finish line with the story it could turn repetitive.
