Howdy, fellow Draconiacs! RazorFox here.
Let me lead off this week by saying thank you to all who took the time to check in on me and see how I was doing. The Draconia Chronicles world headquarters of Norfolk, Virginia, was right in the crosshairs of Hurricane Irene, and based on the hype surrounding the storm, we were bracing for the worst.
Oh, and we had an earthquake earlier this week. Seismic activity is one of the very last things we associate with our region, but sure enough, we experienced a 5.9-magnitude earthquake last week. Between that and an impending hurricane, people were treating these things like harbingers of The Nabisco Apocalypse, as I’m sure such an event would carry corporate naming rights.
Nevertheless, the earthquake shook us but caused zero damage in our area. If anything, we were amused by the physical sensation rather than scared by it. The hurricane did a little more, but still packed far less of a wallop than we were bracing for. Or, perhaps, our overpreparedness made it seem like less of a storm. We’ve been hit before and been caught underprepared. I guess we DO learn lessons, from time to time.
So, to sum all that up, I’m fine. Thanks, everyone, for your concern.
In anticipation of the storm, I booked a day off work to marathon page 255 to a finish and uploaded to the Katbox servers to ensure that you’d have a page today, whether I was “on the grid” or not. The Draconia Chronicles has been running since January 3, 2005, and in the ensuing 6 years and 8 months, I’ve never once missed a scheduled update. I wasn’t about to let some punk-ass hurricane change that.
And so we find Lady Red finding out what some of you correctly deduced would be Kilani‘s exit point. Unfortunately, Briella‘s the one who’s stuck with the *ahem* crappy assignment.
Those of you looking for a soundtrack for this page can continue to pull up “Who Are You” by The Who.
The dates for Intervention are drawing ever closer, and I wanted to mention that the early pre-reg special ends this Thursday, September 1. If you wanna save a few bucks when you come out to see me in Rockville, Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC, on the weekend of September 16, I suggest you get to clickin’ this link. Intervention, a new breed of convention, focuses on web culture–we’re talking bloggers, podcasters, and, of course, webcomics–and they’ve been kind enough to have me back as a guest for their second year. So if you wanna meet me and a buttload of other folks whose websites you probably already visit, Intervention’s the place to do it. Hope to see you there! Tell ‘em RazorFox sent you! ^__^
Oh, and don’t forget to join the Draconia Chronicles Facebook group!
And with that, it’s back to work on next week’s page. Take care, fellow Draconiacs, and thanks for reading! Keep spreading the word!

Whoa! Wow. Poor Lady Red. How the girls put up with it on their way out in the first place is beyond me, least of all Shie and Riah. Hmm, I wonder if Briella can pull up a map of the SEPTA system and the route of the 408!
Poor Lady Red? Poorer Briella! And yeah, you’ve gotta feel bad for the Tigers having to go down in that, but when your freedom and your life are both on the line, you do what you’ve gotta do. The only other option was running through the Imperial City in plain view of other Dragons, and amidst dozens of massive fires. Given that option, suddenly the sewers don’t seem quite so bad. ^__^;;
HA…That has to be the worse assignment ever. Good to hear that everything is okay with Storm Irene.One quick question. Do all light dragons have infrared vision or just her?
More advanced Light Dragons can go into other parts of the electromagnetic spectrum, such as infrared, ultraviolet, x-rays, etc. Not every Light Dragon can do what Briella’s able to do, and no Dragon at all would want to do what Lady Red’s asking her to do. ^__^;;
Crap, yeah that pretty much sums it up. Also looks like Red thinks that this is deliberate. Hard to see were they would have that level of foresight though.
Well, you heard Briella. Maybe they knew what they were doing and were deliberately trying to throw off their pursuers, or they just got lost. I’ve actually got an answer to that on an upcoming page. Hang tight. ^__^
so can light dragons see through walls
Well, now that I think about it, yes, some of them may be able to. Getting into the non-visible spectrum is mainly the dominion of much higher-level Light Dragons, but yeah, I supposed they could see through walls. Good catch! ^__^
I’ve said this elsewhere, but it’s gotta be better than retail! At least down there, Briella only has to deal with crappy smells. Ten bucks says the real expressions on the kitties faces were more “grimaces of abject terror at not finding a way out” instead of the “grins of mockery and gloating” seen here.
As opposed to crappy attitudes from customers? ^__^
And as for the Tigers’ faces, you may be right. As we saw a while back, even they weren’t too crazy about the stench and how it got into their gear. But from the Dragons’ perspective, it’s all “Nyaaa-nyaaa! Can’t catch us, scalies!” I’m having loads of fun showing the Tigers from the Dragons’ point of view. ^o^
First you say it, and then, you’ve got to go down in it. Poor Briella. ^__^;
So, if she did the IR thing, she can control the TV and see it in full 3D?
LOL! Whatever Briella wants to watch, Briella gets. Do not fight for the remote, for she IS the remote. ^o^
So, really advanced light dragons could potentially set up holograms as decoys, or do the Predator thing.
You’re catching on, now. ~__^
Heya, RazorFox! Would’ve commented sooner but lost my darned internet connection before midnight. Anyway, wanted to let you know I *LOVE* how Lady Red is envisioning the Tigers… and I think she needs some Pepto.
Yeah, Dragons don’t exactly have the most positive impression of their Tiger enemies, do they. ^__^
I can only imagine how Tigers envision Dragons… :3
Dear to say, that is a crummy assignment xD that is one of those sad things heh heh.
We’ll see if Briella demands some sort of compensation later on.
Briella is getting the short end of the stick huh? xD well sucks to be her then!
Hey, work’s work, right? ^__^;
Only her second appearance into this comic and you’re already giving Briella the worst job imaginable? This does not bode well for her in the future. Well, so long as you don’t kill her off, I like her.
I’ll admit that I didn’t really start off with any deep, long-term plans for Briella, but so far, she’s been a fun character to work with. I might just be able to continue using her for a while..
I’d almost say that “We Won’t Get Fooled Again” would be a better theme this week. It does continue with CSI: Draconia. Too bad the dragons probably will be fooled again some time in the future.
Good song choice. I might just have a place for that suggestion. Perhaps on an upcoming page…? ~__^
Their teeth scare me…alot….
The Tigers’ teeth? They can be used in two directions: “in” and “through.” ^o^
what do you excpect i mean… they are tigers after all
mmmm, hot tiger girls bending over and smacking themselves on the behind while having their mouth open and tongue out :3
This is the wonderful thing about the Internet. You name the fetish–no matter how specific it is–and someone out there has it! Glad I’ve tapped into the “Hot Tiger girls bending over, smacking their own asses, mouths open, tongue sticking out” demographic! As long as the Dragons keep telling Tiger-centric stories, I think you might have more usable material coming your way. ^__^
