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?

Yep. That title and summary are 100% correct. this story is about the VAINEST dragon you will ever see and the unlucky thief that awoke him from his "nap". It would be perfect but the dragon and his minion both take away half a star because of their motivations.

What happens when the most op fantasy creature, dragons, gain access to the fair omnipotent MC factory known as 'the system'? Antics, shinanigens, and this story right here.

Ok, I need two hundred characters so lets go further, thought it may be a bit dry.

this is a comedy  bromance story set in a fantasy world paralel to earth.  Victor the protag is a charismatic thief who uses his street smarts and satyr realism to survive in a fantasy world.  Vainquar the real protag Knightsbane (with a capital K he can tell and he is listening... maybe its over 200 characters so maybe not) Calamity of his age King of the Albanion mountains is the real protag and quickly hijacks the story the protags life and all good things like any good natured protag should.  Hijinks and shinanigens ensue in a very bromantic way that will captivate all the hearts and minds of bromantics everywhere!

To balance the half star rating I gave the last story I looked at. Also is good.

It is a flying tank not just enough to go some kingdom and get into his vault would think that over the years and the fact of being a dragon of greed would make him more cunning than other dragons.
It boasts of the nobility and does poor tasks of humans in adventures .__.
