    This story is great… thanks for the hard work you put into it dude

    One thing I’m curious about is; before you started writing this had you already had most of the story figured out? or did you just think of the general premise and let the story take you where ever it went?

    Just want to say that this story is flipping awesome. Found it while just looking for something to read and it really took me by surprise at how addicting it was for me to read. Once I started reading I couldn’t stop. Keep going at it! You’re doing a great job!

    This is a really great novel to read especially chapters with his family as well as the fight scenes where he goes merciless towards his enemies. the novel is also easy to read as well as good the characters were well portrayed in the story one in which i like was the captain of droxxos and the mercs. as well as his family, oh and also the dudes who specifically harass him and then gets totally shut down like target practice.
    Pleas keep up the novel and stay healthy, hope there will be an update soon.

  7. I have to say, this has become one of my favorite reads, taking the place among my personal top 3, “Overlord” and “Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei” being the other two.

    Ever since I watched Kaze no Stigma many years ago I’ve found myself drawn towards stories like this where the protagonist is stupidly overpowered compared to the competition. Having read enough manga/watched enough anime where the main character starts out weak but eventually triumphs through the “power of friendship” it feels surprisingly refreshing to read stories like this one.

    I don’t know if you have a Patreon page or something similar set up, if you do, send me a link, and if you don’t, consider setting one up since I don’t think I’d be the only one willing to throw a couple bucks your way each month.

    Keep up the good work, you’ve got an amazing story going here, and I can’t wait to read more about young Kaidus!

      Me too. lol.
      For me, it was Alucard from the Hellsing anime that started my OP love.

      As for a Patreon account, I dont one, but I have considered it. Maybe I’ll make one when I have time to write more than just a chapter a week.
      In the mean time, there is a donation button on RoyalRoadl. It can be found at the end of every chapter on FC there. http://royalroadl.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?fid=1439&page=3

      And thank you for your praises.
      Mahouka is also one of my favorites, so to have my story put in the same category is truly amazing for me.


      • Alucard is pretty damn badass as well, with his near immortality and unstoppable antics, but there’s just something about characters like Kaidus, Tatsuya and Ainz who have just overwhelming magical powers that easily crush their opposition.

        Oh and I have to say, I think it was a pretty genius idea of what his equipment in the prologue turned out to be (keeping it vague for spoiler reasons). When the first one was revealed I was pretty shocked, and I was left to wonder which ones the other pieces would be. Oh, and I can’t wait to see other peoples reactions when/if they find out (not counting his family).

        Regarding Patreon I think that you could probably set one up already, with either a monthly or per submission type of payment. Not only would it allow people to help support you to write more often, but even if it never becomes anything especially big, it would most likely at least pay enough that you could feel like the time spent writing and coming up with ideas would at least pay for itself. If it ends up bringing an income it would allow you to eventually spend more time on it, which leads to more and happier fans and more possible Patrons.

        Anyway, I’m no Economics major or anything (in fact I’m basically a 23 year old NEET at this point), and I don’t know a ton about Patreon, but I don’t think it would hurt to try, especially since people can choose their own amounts to donate as Patrons each month.


        • Za1d3 says:

          It’s definitely an idea.

          And thanks. The idea for the spirits was one of the reasons why I wanted to write FC in the first place. ^^


          • Ascherit says:

            Do you take story integration ideas/plot progression ideas?


              • Topcreater says:

                Until recently, stories like Mahouka Koukou no Rettousi, Code Geass and Doulou Dalu have been on my top three list. Basically, it is due to the fact that I cannot get enough of overpowered protagonists that with time reveal their true powers and hidden identities, coupled with their great love to their families, lovers or loyal friends. I was fairly dissatiesfied with the direction Mushoku Tensei took later on, so I was truly exhilarated, when I discovered that Forgotten Conqueror exceeds its plot by far. Now, Forgotten Conqueror has earned a place among these top novels.

                You are doing a terrific work! The language is absolutely brilliant compared to other novels! I simply cannot get enough of the relationship Kaidus has with his familiy (particularly to his sister), his spirits and his acquantances (particularly to his school friends and those who have been observing him for a while). Then there are those shocking moments when he slowly reveals his powers to his opponents and acquintances, excellent!! Furthermore, the antagonisms and subsequent, interrelated battle scenes are first-rate – the mix of swordart, magic and innovative utilization of spirits is really awesome! I am looking forward to how Kaidus’ “current” and “future” relationships will develop and how he will create ripples and shocks in the world.

                Keep up the good work!!

      I recommend reading “I Shall Seal the Heavens” & “Coiling Dragon”


  8. Fred says:

    Thanks for your work! This is a masterpiece… I mean I would also put this piece of art along with Against the gods, Douluo Dalu in term of badass main character being reincarnated with a second chance. Truly love the mix between family day, mysterious journey with a side character/spirit and the main story following Kaidus. Currently in my most aniticipated update of each week!

    Long live Kaidus! Long live Za1d3!

    Really interesting read up to B02 CH19. Looking forward to more!

    Thanks Za1d3!

    thanks for the hard work Za1d3


  12. LightofAsura says:

    Can i just say, Anise could probably either start countless wars, or stop them all together with her absolute cuteness. When i went to RoyalRoad, and saw this on top i was skeptical, but after reading only 10 chaps i was hooked, and and can honestly say you deserve top spot. I’ve read hundreds of books, and this even though it’s only on book 2, can be considered in my top 10 forever. Keep up the good work, it’s amazing.

    Any updates


  14. Das says:

    Holy fk, this is good. The style of writing reminds me of japan+english light novel.

    Sometimes the kids ”conversation” reminded me of harry potter series. Oh and the usage of banter got me good. Loving the character and world building too.

    This need more views. Cheers and big thanks to the author for indulging us in this wonderful ride.

    Will definitely be donating once I settle my paypal payments

    I would recommend you reading “3 levels of leadership”.
    Great materials for developing characters.

    Hi, Za1d3. may i ask you to give us a present in new year in the form of MASS RELEASE CHAPTER. thank you for your hardwork.


  17. allecrastia says:

    Hi Za1d3 thanks for keeping uploading your writings! I’ve been enjoyed it very much! But if it’s not that much to ask, are you gonna upload the next chapter tomorrow(a week after last chapter), or 3 days later (your previous scheduled update), Hope you’ll respond to this, my F5 is breaking xD


  18. Xiare says:

    I was quite happy when I found your novel in the site that I mentioned to you last time. ( I hope that you gained a few more readers from it.) It seems that I really quite adore this story of yours because when I read this post (http://forum.wuxiaworld.com/categories/original-stories) I suddenly thought of this novel. I hope you can check it out when you have the time and maybe post this story in there. (I hope you don’t mind me suggesting you to post your story in this or that site.)

    Just dropping by to give some words of encouragement. I started to read your ff yesterday and to be honest, after reading the description, I was highly skeptic. Fast forward 10 hours, I am already waiting for an update! I absolutely love everything about it ( wish I could give constructive criticism :X hehe but I seriously don’t see anything to improve ). I have been trying to find something else to read while waiting for an update, but everything else seems to fall short now on RR! Damnn you!!

    Well, keep it up and thanks for writing such a great story!

    Hello,my english is not so good but i need to left a word to the writer. I first read this story last week. After reading the first few word i was not not interested with the story so I close this website and open other website such as gravitytales or some other website. A week after that i couldn’t find any story that interest me so i search other light novel in the internet and I found this story around evening and start reading. At first I thought I had read this story so as i was about to exit this place something came to my mind. “Why don’t I just continue reading this, maybe I’ll find something that can interest me so i continue reading this from where I left it. Unknown to me I have been reading this story nonstop without noticing the time,hygiene,hunger and people and after i finish it was already dawn. Some other people may have already finish reading all the chapter but I’m a slow reader. So here i want to thank you for writing this amazing story. And sorry for my bad grammar.

    Sorry for the long comment. I just need to tell the writer about it. Sorry for posting long and bad grammar comment.

  32. Narcolepticmunchkin says:

    Za1d3, for donations, why not just make a special donated chapter like what many novel translator use ? But because yours is original story, put a bigger rate for it, eg : for a total donation of $125 you’ll publish an extra chapter that week.

    Second, you can perhaps putting ads (which mean, you need to move out from wp).

    Third, E-books. Make a book, sell it like 3.99 or 4.99 for every volume (like 10 chapters a volume). And perhaps you can do it for 0.99 a chapter next.

    Just some mcnuggets for the mind…


    • Za1d3 says:

      Lol. I would love to, but I fear I’d be unable to pull through for some of the chapters. That’s my main concern.

      And you are right about moving out of WP. I’ve played with the idea earlier this year, but never went through with it.

      As for an Ebook, that’ll probably have to wait. I Still have to go back and correct a lot of issues.


  33. Narcolepticmunchkin says:

    Hmmm, but judging from many people experiences, ads in truth are not all sugar and rainbow. Where the field fact is, the revenue ain’t that big. But still, some is better than none.

    For e-books, you’re right, it’s not a small decision. You need an editor, though probably not really that urgent.

    Like what my mom always said, “If you want people knows your products, you need a promotion. It’s all about sugar coating, cooperations, and human relations.”

    Somehow, all this writing and revenue stuff makes remember The Simpsons episode, The Book Job….How I hope that team writing a story can instantly be like, “Congratulations, you’ve sell your book for one million dollars.”


  34. Ajoy kumar says:

    I think i’ll drop the novel for a few months. Maybe a year. Got tired of checking for updates every 2 or 3 days. Its been like 1 & 1/2 month without any update. I dont know what to say to the author.!! He says he has personal life. I mean which author doesn’t have personal life. I’m not here to complain, just to let the author know that we have been waiting for the chapters. But I don’t know if our words reach him in between his PERSONAL Life. In any case I’m saying bye bye to this novel. Perhaps after a year I will pick it up again :/
