Vainqueur the Dragon
by Void Herald
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?

Well... What to say. I stumbled into this fiction, when I got on Royalroad. It had like... 14 chapters released?
And up until now, It just doesn't disappoint.
I like the style a lot. It taking a twist on the Isekai genre is wonderful.
The story... is sometimes a bit weird, which fully fits within its style. The way every arc turns out, is fresh, new and funny.
The grammar... Well. Is fine.
And the characters are what drives this story home. They are funny, if sometimes stereotypical, but always entertaining enough, as not to break the immersion.
This story is a well rounded package that has everything one could wish from an above average story. Nothing godly. But I'd buy it's bovel series in hardcover. Whatever the shipping costs.
An enjoyable and entertaining read overall.
Vanqueuer is a prideful Dragon whose greatest desire is to accumalate a large, shiny pile of gold and other precious items. Combine him with a subordinate human whose current ambition is to get laid (or "breed" as the dragon terms it) -- and you have a delectable comedic treat. The story is about how the great dragon and his loyal minons go adventuring using a RPG system.
Haven't found any obvious flaws in any aspect yet.
The dialogue is cool, and fleshes out the interesting character traits of each character. An easy read with no mind-numbing descriptions or superfluous details. Too early to judge the world-building, but it is a standard fantasy setting.
I feel like there are too many skills gained too fast to even keep track of in one person, but doesn't take much away from the drama elements of the story.
As of chapter 17, we are just beginning to see the formation of the plot and the obstacles that our characters must overcome to achieve their goals. The relationships between the dragon and his minions is also being established.
So I'll keep updating this review as the plot thickens.
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
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.
This story started super fun, went onto epic but somehow still managed to be fun.
I like when the tags advertising the story fit. Here they fit 100%
The story is well paced, without the heroes having the long explaining monologs and with just the right mix of humour and adventure, with a little dash of politics and the stress of running a country.
Beware there is a Plot armor. Like in an a tual armor
It's been one happyland of a ride with breath taking humour, amazing battles, crazy shinanagins and a friendship like non other.
I can certainly say this is my favorite story and I'm happy it got such an amazing and enjoyable ending and I'll be looking forward to the next.
The story was so entertaining it never felt like the author was stretching with filler the humor wasn't stale the characters were fleshed out and actually changed throughout the story and the ending was extremely satisfying. Even the downtime was entertaining with the mix of humor and actual plot. Not to mention the fact that even with how many LitRpg stories there are this one is still really unique. Definitely one of if not my favorite story in here.
It has been a pleasure to follow this story from the beginning, it has a lot of humor and action to enjoy it was amazing to read and follow.
What started off as an unwilling minionship / partnership has ended in friendship through twists and turns it is simply amazing.
Thanks for the amazing story hope the next one is even better.
I waited for almost 6 months since I started reading for the story to finish so I can finally post a review. And it was worth it.
Overall score 10/5
It is for stories like these that I wish RR had an option to give 10/10.
Clean, understandable, varied vocabulary. Unlike other litRPGs, it doesn't water the story down to just numbers. In fact, you can skip that part entirely and savour the story regardless. A big plus is that the author doesn't overexplain and uses the archetype-al terms everyone knows to quickly get down to the core of the story.
You know you made it when you can make meta-commentary jokes on your own story. The only bad thing about this story is that it ends.
It takes you from 0 to 100 and keeps going. I am often surprised that the story always manages to come out unique and break another ceiling. Another funny thing is that despite being a comedy oriented story, there are still 0 plotholes.
Character score: 5/5
The story boasts an extremely wide palette of characters- you will find anything and everything from talking cats to eldritch gods. All the characters are well written, fleshed out, and fit a certain niche.
I gave it 4.5/5 in a review just so people don't say I am biased. I have seen some minor mistakes (which were fixed immediately once commented.) and the author is writing so fast I honestly don't know how the work is so clean.
I have quite a few good things to say about Void Herald. First of all, he is a beast! Posting a fully completed chapter every 2-3 days is honestly god-level writing. Now add to the fact that this is mostly a comedy piece. And that the jokes/punchlines/funny things are bound to the very narrow field.
He interacts with his readers and answers questions- something I see as a big plus. He posts music, fan art, polls, thanks to his patreons. Engaging your reader-base is important, he does it all.
