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?

One of the best in Royalroad

Reviewed at: 37: Meet the Dwarves

Nearly perfect in every area it excels. Humour, character growth, stereotypes and jokes. You can't stop reading when you started to read first 5-6 chapters. What is even more good is the more you read, the more intriguing the story becomes. What can I say? Not reading this story is your loss. Just start already.

  • Overall Score

One can't summarize this without sounding insane.  The chapters themselves are models of directed chaos but the over all story is barely held in order with the romping characters and plot.


Give the first 3 chapters a try and you will finish the story.

  • Overall Score

a very good story the author listens to cronstuctive feedback without being bitter about it and most importantly this story has good charecters and a direction the sotry seems to be moving in while being enjoyable

  • Overall Score

Often we find a good comedy story that starts great. Then it slowly goes too far in one style or another. Think of how many parody movies just went too far and ended up stupid instead of funny.  

This story is one of those great examples of humor that never goes too far over the limits yet dances that edge so wonderfully. From start to its latest update there is something to laugh or smile about in each chapter.

This is one of the funnest reads i have ever had.
