Comic 286

Howdy, fellow Draconiacs!  RazorFox here.

From an idea that was floated in the LiveStream for this page, we introduce Ennek‘s finishing move, the “Ennek-conda!”  I’m sure there are more than just a few of you out there  who get a kick out of seeing Kess in agony.  Enjoy!  ^__^

Those of you looking for a soundtrack for this page can pull up “Black Betty” by Spiderbait.

Last week, I floated the idea of the hypothetical possibility of doing a limited-edition run of poseable Draconia Chronicles action figures.  By a margin of 54% to 46%, you all voted to see a Dragon be the subject rather than a Tiger.  Thanks for the input!  Now, the question becomes, which Dragon?

Since the question is rather open-ended, I’m going to ask you all to respond via your comments below.  All the Dragons that get at least two nominations will go into next week’s poll question and then we’ll figure out who would get the spotlight as an as-of-yet-hypothetical action figure.

Finally, my buddy Jon Ponikvar is running a KickStarter campaign so as to raise capital to create an animated pilot episode based on his webcomic, Peter & Company.  Jon has helped us out here at The Draconia Chronicles with a guest comic for last year’s “Draconia Chronicles Annual,” and I’m returning the favor by pledging my support for this huge undertaking.  I encourage all of you to donate, whether a little or a lot, to help out one of our fellow webcomickers make his dream a reality.  He doesn’t have all that far to go, so even a little bit will get him a lot closer to his goal.  You can find out more about the project and donate on his KickStarter page.  Tell him RazorFox sent ya!

And with that, I bid you adieu.  This page was an exhausting one, but still a ton of fun.  I’ve already got the next page scripted, so it’s time to get drawing!

Take care, fellow Draconiacs, and thanks for reading!

    good work like always but Bril shout not risk her luck anymore or she will rune out of it and get her scaled ass in troubel again *g*

    and Kess needs more punshiment time 😀

    • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

      Ennek didn’t say she was done. ~__^

      • Sleel

        Good, good. Just one submission hold can’t be nuff payback for her ages of *censored tirade here*. She deserves more pain and blood leakage. And if ya end up killing of poor Brie, at least let Brie get her first.

  • DragonForLife10

    probably not the first one to think this/comment this(skimmed past all the comments)

    DAT LIGHT CLONE ASS!

    HNNNNNG

    • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

      And it’s “light,” so no calories, and no guilt. ^__^

      • Darkguyver2020

        I’m sorry if I offended you with my criticisms, Razorfox. In hindsight I could have worded it out in a less condescending manner. But I’m pretty sure you know exactly what I’m talking about. I still appreciate the effort you put into the webcomic. Just tone down the fanservice just a little bit, that’s all. ^^;

        • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

          No offense at all, dude! I actually really liked it. I need a reality check every now and then, and I sincerely appreciate your comments, good, bad, or ugly, as the situation warrants. Scroll up and check out my response. ^__^

          • Darkguyver2020

            Good to hear, man. In regards to your response, I admire the fact that you took a bunch of fanservice images and created your own world and story out of them. I personally found myself more invested in the story during the earlier chapters. I’m sure many people condemned you for killing off Gaia, but to me, if showed you weren’t afraid to take risks. Also, while the fanservice was definitely present, it wasn’t shoved into our faces quite as much.
            I tend to enjoy stories that can stand on it’s own two feet without having to rely on gratuitous nudity and pop culture references to keep an audiences attention. While there is nothing wrong with weaving them in here and there, too much could distract from the plot. The cussing could be toned down as well. I counted at least 5 swear words on this page alone.
            At the risk of repeating myself, I’ll end this reply here. Good luck with the comic. I look forward to seeing what else you come up with.

          • LostDragoon

            Now there is a calling card you can get behind, let alone i love the rhyme. Did this have to do with siblings Razor?

          • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

            Glad you love the rhyme! Though I’m not sure what you’re referring to with the bit about the siblings. Ennek and Kess aren’t related in any way, if that’s what you’re thinking. o_O

          • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

            Actually, on the topic of swearing, that’s actually done on purpose. One of my goals has been to show the Tigers as being flat-out more aggressive and barbaric than the Dragons, and therefore, to help illustrate that, their language is intentionally more profane. So, for instance, if they’re describing feces, they wouldn’t say “poop” or “droppings” or anything like that. Rather, they’d just use the word “shit.” Short, simple, and effective. You’ll see that it’s far less common amongst the Dragons, but since the Tigers outnumber the Dragons by a 7-to-1 ratio in the present scene, you’re going to hear more Tiger dialogue than Dragon.

        • Kobra

          This comic was built on fanservice fool! Quite griping.

          • Darkguyver2020

            Have you read Razorfox’s responses? He took my criticisms maturely. How about you try to follow his example.

          • Ionjam

            Does the Ennek/Kess “Say Auntie” make anyone else think of “A Christmas Story”?
            That being said, since Briella has already received a vote, I would like to put forth Fuegana, eating a samich, wearing a dirty tiger outfit with the head hanging in back like the hood of a hoodie so she can eat said samich….. or is that too much detail (and maybe a cheat since it makes it both a tiger and a dragon), in which case, I nominate Fuegana. :)
            (Then maybe later release the Kighan with takedown action, and then the Xhianil with psycho action)

          • Ionjam

            PS. Regarding Darkguyver2020. Sometimes a well developed story line can take on a life of it’s own. In my opinion, this speaks not to the lack of skills of the writer, but to the strength of his/her imagination. To be able to breath so much life in to a work of fiction is a rare thing. This can detract from a story line if it meanders too much. While I personally don’t feel this has detracted from this comic, it is something to be aware of. So far, I am completely satisfied with your story telling, and awed by your artistic ability. However, this is just my humble opinion and not meant to more than thus. thank you for sharing your gifts.

          • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

            Thanks so much for the kind words! Darkguyver brought up a lot of good points, and it helps to have an outsider’s perspective on things. At the end of the day, though, this IS still my own creation, and I’d be doing you all a disservice if I weren’t putting out a comic I myself weren’t happy with. Let’s see if I can balance this diet. Thanks again for the praise! ^__^

          • Darkguyver2020

            Once again, I’d like to apologise for the display up there, Razor. Some people really need to follow your example and learn to take criticism.

          • Kobra

            Oh you sorry S.O.B.

          • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

            Okay, I don’t normally do this, but I’m going to have to intervene here. Darkguyver, you brought up some fair criticism, and Kobra, you’re welcome to your opinion and I respect your thoughts, too. But I will not have a lively discussion and even what one might call a debate just devolve into personal attacks and name-calling.

            If you wish to carry on that way, please take it elsewhere.

            Kobra, please accept that everyone is entitled to their opinion and are allowed to express them freely here on this site. That includes the ones you don’t agree with. Tigers and Dragons can fight, but we’re all here on this page to enjoy a comic together.

            Darkguyver, as much as I appreciate your comments, each time you respond to Kobra, it only encourages him. Please, just leave it be. The drama should be confined to the comic pages.

            I do have access to a banhammer. I’ve never had to use it, and I don’t want to have to use it on either of you. Consider this your warning, though: play nice, or play somewhere else.

            Thanks for your cooperation. ^__^

          • Argodeath

            4 MORE DAYS!

            Damn razor you can keep people in suspense really well can’t wait to see conclusion,fingers been crossed for a few weeks hope Bri makes it, Witch at this point i don’t doubt.

          • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

            Wow! Thanks for the compliment! I’m a shameless abuser of cliffhangers. Gotta bring you back next week, every week, to find out what happens next. ^__^

          • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

            Fuegana is now on the ballot! And I love the idea of having her in the Tiger tackle-dummy suit! Maybe that’ll be a good way to give people the best of both worlds.

            And believe it or not, I have never actually seen all of “A Christmas Story,” so any connection between Ennek’s demands on Kess and the movie are a cool coincidence. ^__^

          • Kobra

            How about you do everyone a favor and just shut up!

          • Darkguyver2020

            How childish. Although I was critical about some points, my only intention is to help Razorfox. I want to help him grow as a writer, seeing he’s now flying solo on this project. You on the other hand spam these pages and throw insults at people that have a differing opinion to yours.
            Grow up!

          • http://kingpose.deviantart.com/ kingpose

            Today seems to be the day that people get butthurt about webcomics. And I can’t decide between Kighan and Elektra…

          • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

            No butt-hurt here, or at least not for me personally. How others handle it is up to them. I learned a long time ago that if you want to get better, then you have to be aware of your shortcomings, and often, an artist might be in denial–or completely oblivious–to them. You learn to enjoy the good feedback, and take an almost masochistic glee in bad feedback. It becomes a challenge to prove the naysayers wrong. Darkguyver did me a lot of good, and I thank him for it. ^__^

            As for your nominations, I should point out that Elektra’s already on the ballot, as she’s had two nominations in earlier comments. Kighan’s only got one so far, and yours makes two. Kighan’s on the ballot! ^o^

          • http://kingpose.deviantart.com/ kingpose

            I was just talking in general, since over on LL people were complaining that CBlue was advertising in the wrong place, etc. Then some other stuff on a few other comics. And if Elektra is on the ballot, can I switch my vote for her to Gaia, if I could :3

          • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

            Well, actually, Gaia is also already on the ballot. She’s already gotten her two nominations. Voting begins on the next update, which goes up Sunday night. ^__^

          • amarisnight

            Wow, I’m a new reader and I just have to say I just want to read more….Awesome job RazorFox! If I’m allowed a vote, I vote Arc and Chiara (seeing as how Elektra is already on the ballot >_>).

          • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

            Another new reader! Thanks so much for joining us, and be sure to spread the word about us! As for your nominations, you just put Arc and Lady Chiara on the ballot! Thanks! ^o^

          • http://www.digitalcharles.com Sinstarr

            Hey Razor, sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been really busy hear lately.I must say that Kess had this coming a long time ago, and maybe she’ll be more aware of her surroundings in the future. lol. I know it may be too little too late but you know my vote goes for Blue. Can’t wait to read the comic tomorrow!! ^_^

          • http://www.digitalcharles.com Sinstarr

            hmmm……maybe he won’t notice. I vote for Blue as well, and I am not the same Sinstarr. lol. ^_^

          • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

            I know it’s really you, Land Shark. ~__^

          • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

            I think the consensus here is that Kess has earned every bit of this ass-whoopin’. Glad you’re enjoying it!

            Your nomination for Blue has been duly noted. ^__^

          • http://kingpose.deviantart.com/ kingpose

            Well I feel just plain stupid.
            Silly me and picking those who have been voted for.

          • Kobra

            Oh god, I knew as soon as you showed up in the form things were going to go bad. Everyone else was enjoying the post and then you had to come in and rage over trivial things like too much fan service and pop culture references. And now you’re attacking me for calling you out on you’re own shit. You’re the only one throwing insults at people so maybe you should take you’re own advice.

          • Darkguyver2020

            I suggest you learn how to read, kid. Did you see any raging in my previous posts on this page? No. It’s a little thing called “criticism”.
            The only person I’m raging at right now is you because you’re such a halfwit. Seriously, does your mommy know you’re on the computer looking at comics that are clearly below your age limit? Maybe once that mound of slush rattling in your head matures into a brain you will understand.

          • Kobra

            Kid, you’re calling me a kid now. Well aren’t we the presumptuous, arrogant ass. First I didn’t like you because your a dick, now I hate you because you’re the worst kind of self righteous, trolling, bastard.

          • Darkguyver2020

            Cry some more, bitch! If you don’t want to be called a kid, stop acting like one!

          • Kobra

            The only one acting like a kid is you, worse yet like a snob. No one had a problem with how things are going except you, which tells me that you’re the only prude that’s the odd one out.

  • snakehead250

    i like the calling card

    • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

      Because writing “Briella was here” on the walls just wouldn’t quite cut it. ^__^

      • Explosion Zuruck

        ASS SHOT! And tigers DO fight amongst themselves. FIRST FROM DA NINTENDO WII BEYOTCH!

        • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

          They certainly do. Talking things out are for pansies. Tigers settle it with fists, claws, suplexes, and submission holds! ^o^

  • Wolf

    Briella all the way

    • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

      Another nod for Briella, who’s already on the ballot. Sounds like she’s got a good coalition behind her. ^__^

  • Kobra

    Common Ennek kick Kess in the head with her own feet now!

    • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

      LOL! If she bends her a little further, Ennek could probably do that. ^__^

      • Kobra

        Cat’s are flexible I’m shore she can do that.

      • Kobra

        After all they can reach to lick anywhere on there body. Except the top of there head but that’s what they use there paws for.

  • King of Blades

    wow i’m new here ad i must say, ive read up to now in today and yesterday, just wow i think this might be my favorite web comic, i think i side with the dragons, can’t wait util monday
    p.s lady red all the way for my vote.

    • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

      Thanks for discovering the comic, and for reading the entire backlog. I know it goes back pretty far. To say that this is your favorite webcomic now is a huge honor for me! Enjoy the ride!

      As for your nomination for Lady Red, she’s actually already been nominated onto the ballot, but thanks anyhow. She and Briella are shaping up to be the two front-runners when the poll goes up this Monday. Be there! ^o^

  • unreal2056

    Yet another great page, also i cast my vote for Fuegana and Oscura.

    • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

      Thanks! Fuegana’s already on the ballot, but believe it or not, Queen Oscura is not… until now! Thanks for getting her on! ^__^
