Introduction

Vainqueur Knightsbane is your average red dragon: a giant, fire-breathing lizard who loves to take a nap on his hoard of stolen gold, 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?

Vainqueur the Dragon is a short, fantasy-comedy web novel following the adventures of the eponymous Vainqueur, a sixty-feet long dragon of legends, and his unwilling sidekick, the human Victor, as they become professional adventurers in a land of classes and levels. .
