Vainqueur the Dragon

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?

It’s a unique premise, set in a classic world. It’s basically about a dragon who realizes, “Why be the end boss when you can be the one who kills the end boss.”

I just spent the last hour laughing so hard that my ribs are aching, my throat is sore, and I can barely read my eyes are so teary.  This is one of the funniest things I've read, and I read a lot.  Strongly recommended - when finished, I expect this to become an all time favorite novel (please, please finish/continue it).  If I could give six stars I would.

YES. 

Feed me MORE chapters author-sama! 

We wouldn't want a dead furry enthusiast at you're house, now do we?

I always try to leave the stories I read alone for a few weeks so I can stack up chapters to read. Vainqueur has bested me, I’m unable to stop myself reading chapters as soon as I see them come out. An excellent story that’s very enjoyable to read.

A Story filled with laughs and comedic moments and filled with characters who make you laugh. The dragon especially is a extremely fun character. The Story so far is very entertaining and am just waiting for more

Is only matched by his ineptitude!

Our scaley MC is a dragon who has recently discovered the 'system' and loves gold. 

Becoming an adventurer enables him to gain gold for doing dragony things that's he wants to do anyway. Hilarity ensues!

First 18 chapters are brilliant in terms of humor. Will update after reading further.

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!
