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?

Thank you Void, please write more chapters

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

An earthling tries to steal from a dragon; fails and subsequently becomes it's minion.

A dragon with a class, lol.

Two chapters in, and much like the hoard, golden

I can tell, even with two chapters, that this is gonna be great.

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.

Great story, humorous writing and characters. A very enjoyable read.

 

The only critique I have is the book cover, I'm not very sure if it's licensed and I see no mentions or credit to the artist (Björn Lensig):

 EDIT: All is good now!

Things like this make life worth living

This is 100% one of the best fictions i ever read, the characters so far are interesting and the story seems to be progressing at a nice pace and i can see how no matter how strong and smart vainqueur grows, his objective of increasing the size of his hoard with all he considers valuable (be it gold or minions) will always be his main driving force.

I hope i can keep reading this story for years, thank you herald :D.

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.

Poor little manlings

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.
