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!

=RazorFox.

  • Finlass

    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 :D

    • 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! ^__^

  • Silvertail

    Oh, how I wish I could be in Kess’s position right now. ;) (Y’know, minus the unbearable pain and potentially broken bones.)

  • http://twitter.com/Draven_Long Draven

    Despite Enneks current moment of enhanced badass, it’s still not comparable to an everyday Briella.
    P.S. Elektra for the action figure.

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    And preferably with Ennek in a better mood. ^__^

  • hariman

    I wouldn’t stop Ennek from beating Kess up on principle

    Kess deserves this. Kess deserves this a LOT.

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    You make a good point. But could Briella pull off the “Ennek-conda?”

    Also, nomination for Elektra has been noted. Thanks! ^__^

  • Xch3l

    DAT ASS 8E *shakes* Love that “cath me if you can” pose! About Kess, she deserves it…

    BTW: Eone ^_^

  • http://twitter.com/Draven_Long Draven

    Could she? Probably not, her wings would get in the way. But Briella is a dragon, therefor better than a tiger always.

  • http://www.furaffinity.net/user/maverikat/ MaveriKat

    LOL! Interesting “Calling Card” Briella left… she better hope she gets away or they WILL do more than “kiss her ass”.

    And wow. Kess performs an EXCELLENT impression of a pretzel!

  • Kobra

    “Tiger fucking dragon?” I didn’t know that there were dragons that were into that sort of thing.

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Kess is multitalented like that. How Ennek pulled this off is beyond me, but she did it somehow. Kess is gonna be in a world of hurt in the morning. ^__^

  • Kobra

    And forget about Ennek Shie is the bad-ass in this page. As she continues Kess’s comeuppance in her house of pain.

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Briella’s not above getting in a good potshot at her opponents’ expense. She can only be ladylike but so much of the time. ^__^

    Also, nomination for Eone noted. ^__^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Karma’s a bitch, and that bitch’s name is Ennek. ^o^

  • hariman

    I suspect that when Briella sees Lady Red, the greeting will be a well deserved punch to Lady Red’s uppity snout.

    It’s not that I think Lady Red’s snout is uppity, it’s that I think that Briella thinks that Lady Red’s snout is uppity!

  • hariman

    I have faith that Briella can make it out and back to her city.

    Then again, I have a pet theory that she might get some unexpected help from Kilani.

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    All the more reason why Tigers deem it an insult. ^__^

  • Arjay

    Always amusing when Tigers channel their inner Samuel L. Jackson.

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    She’s just following the rules, and the rules say not to interfere with fighting Tigers. Ennek’s free to do what she wants. ^__^

  • frenchskaven

    Kess should have taken this a long time ago.

    P.S: Elektra

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    The best things come to those who wait. ^__^

    And that’s two nominations for Elektra! She’s on the ballot! ^o^

  • Crabby

    Now to go home and convince the earth dragons to build a perfect replica of that pose so it can be immortalized.

  • kittyluver

    i laughed so hard when i saw ennek kicking that crap outa kess that i almost started crying! also, i love briellas card, though it will prob just make teh tigers angrier!

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    I like to think that every one of us has a small Samuel L. Jackson lurking inside. ^__^

  • MrAMP

    Dang!!! I missed quite a bit these last few months.

    I take it that Ennek is kind of tired with all the BS she had to but up with these last few pages and finally decided to take it out on Kess. It begs the question as to what she would do if the twins continue to irritate her.

    Now that’s one interesting calling card. Hopefully she gets to keep it (assuming she’s alive after this…Seriously, I’ve been reading the last few pages and am wondering why Red only sent one, ONE DRAGON, to fight at least four tigers based on the escape).

    One question though, I’ve noticed that the panels are somewhat different. Is that because of Brille’s light magic?

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Of whose pose? Briella’s? Life-size or two stories tall? ^__^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Are you talking specifically about Ennek’s roundhouse kick on the last page, or are you using “kick” in the broad term to include Kess being caught in the “Ennek-conda?” Either way, I’m absolutely thrilled I could get someone to laugh themselves to tears! ^o^

    As for Briella, you can’t blame her for feeling like she’s gained some control over the situation. She’s earned the right to a little taunt. ^__^

  • Arjay

    I’m thinking with the opponent face down, firmly grab each ankle, flip/roll yourself forward over the opponent’s body with your legs tucked in so that your rump comes to rest on the back of the opponent’s shoulders, and your thighs placed on each side of the opponent’s head. Now clamp your thighs together and proceed to pull the held ankles over your shoulders as much as possible for pain, profit, and/or hilarity.

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    You know, I’m visualizing that and it might actually work. I threw this together with only the faintest regard for whether it was realistically doable or not, and you just made it feasible. Well done!! I’m impressed!! ^o^

  • AACMIV/ac2

    a kat fight it the KATBOX! *ba-dum-tis* XD

  • Crabby

    Both

  • Crabby

    The life sized one they can put down there as a reminder to any tigers that happen to venture down there.

    The two-storied one she’ll probably want right outside of Lady Red’s quarters.

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    LOL! And I can guess which side of the statue would be facing her window. No matter what time of the day it is, she’s always got a great view of a full moon. ^o^

  • http://hamstap85-studios.webs.com/ hamstap85

    Not a bad calling card. Sure to draw attention.

    I know your fav is Red, so you’ll make her action figure behind our backs anyway, but my nomination is for Eone. Just have a thing for earth dragons…

  • http://mechaashura20.deviantart.com/ MechaAshura20

    My fan-made character for this is an Ice Dragon; I don’t think we’ve seen any Ice Dragon on any page.

  • Ashen735

    Kighan. Love that crazy dragon chick. ^.^ probably way late but meh gotta give it a try. btw I read through the comments and being a new reader I haven’t seen the problem so far, like I understand where everyone is coming from but I always assumed this recent eye candy was more of a joking thing. dunno anything about the fan service though so I got lost on that.

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    I’m willing to forego my own favorites for you all’s. And yours is the second nomination for Eone. She’s officially on the ballot now! ^o^

  • Kobra

    Oh right, I forgot that Shie isn’t the one fighting right now… Sorry.

  • JoeRaven

    Omg! Love it! I laughed so hard and woke up the wife! Winning! This gets a MEGA STAMP! Amazing job once again Danny!

  • http://petitesymphony.com/rascals mastergodai

    love that calling card

    and lady red gets my vote

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    If what you’re referring to is that light haze, it’s supposed to be just glare from Briella’s decoys. As for your other questions, the answers, my friend, are waiting in the wings… ~__^

  • http://krahazik.deviantart.com Krahazik

    If I recall the idea wasn’t for her to “fight” the Tigers, just find them as a forward scout and stay out of sight till Red can catch up to them with her flock.

    I hope she gets away and if we are talking action figures, I wouldn’t mind one for the Princess and one of Briella. I hope she manages to get out of there with her hide more or less intact.

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Woohoo! Sexy violence is our house special at the Draconia Café! ^o^

  • Kobra

    Well as fare as they know. There may be some dragons that are interested.

  • Hoj_poj

    Whos wings?

    PS: Lumina (that’s the princess dragons name right? The little white one?)

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    That is, indeed, Princess Lumina. Nomination noted. ^__^

  • Ria.Pendragon

    I second Lumina/Chuki.

  • Hoj_poj

    Well, I did already got for Lumina, but briella in the “calling card” pose would be kind of awesomesauce too.

  • Aethus

    Wow, I never thought I’d see Ennek get to be so badass…and the sight of Kess tapping out so emphatically was just hilarious X3
    Few comics keep me waiting as anxiously for the next page as yours does, and with the sheer amount of them I read, that’s saying something ^^U
    P.S. Lumina thirded, is best dragon :P

  • Argodeath

    Great work Razor hopefully Bri will make it out know, and i don’t mind the calling card either.

    Also i nominate: Elektra for action figure.

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Interesting. I hadn’t thought of her doing that pose as being good for an action figure, but maybe a statuette. A hypothetical one, mind you. ~__^

  • Surun the Scroll-writer

    There we have Ennek showing Kess who’s top cat ’round here’ heh, this is indeed the kind we have. Maybe a lesson learned :3, and a lovely Briella getting her tail out of dodge! Heh she’s so cute ^_^, I love seeing her safer than she had been now. =)

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    One more decoy, just to put an exclamation point at the end of the sentence. ^__^

    And we have a nomination for Lady Red! ^o^

    Cool! Princess Lumina, aka “Chuki,” is on the ballot! ^o^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Wow. I am truly honored by that comment. Thank you so much! I’m overjoyed to have created a comic that keeps people brimming with anticipation. You’ve made my day, my friend!

    As for Kess, I think just about anyone would be tapping in that same position. I didn’t design it to be comfortable, after all. Kess has no choice but to tap like a telegraph. ^__^;

    And Princess Lumina is most definitely on the ballot! ^o^

  • Chuck

    Despite her anger, Ennek still has the presence of mind not to cause serious injury to Kess (just a little pain & humiliation). It may be time for a new leader. One that isn’t such a hot-head like Kess.
    Pretty slick how you wrapped those panels around the center action.

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    No, we haven’t, and that’s because there aren’t any. Water Dragons can work with water in all its states, though, including ice and steam, so that’s close. ^__^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Thanks for the kind words! Can’t blame Briella for getting in one last lick, can you? ^__^

    And Elektra has been added to the ballot. ^o^

  • Chocothunda

    7th panel had me rollin!

    Also, DAMN, ENNEK! When she gets pissed, she gets pissed!

    Also, Briella with dat ass; gotta say, that’s a hell of a way to leave a lasting impression ;) *shot for bad pun*

  • Sleel

    Torn between Sombrana and Brie.

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    LOL! And they’ve got to let it pass on its own. Who knows when Ennek will actually release the hold. ^__^

  • Wrytergirl

    Kess feels the might of the “Ennek-conda” Hopefully she learns her lesson. But right now, I’m just hoping Briella can escape. She’s too amazing to die!
    And I nominate Queen Oscura for a figure. :3

  • Discord

    oh no not at all, the mood is perfect, I would want her to be baaaaaad kitty

  • Argodeath

    Just a question razor How much do you bilieve the figures will cost?
    I want to know how much i need to save? :)

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Well, if these purely hypothetical action figures existed, and seeing as how they’d be limited-edition, they would probably be around US$30 each. Hypothetically speaking, of course.

  • http://www.jelliclechronicles.org Rumblepurr

    “And you can kiss my…” Yes, indeed – good signature… Either that or “Bite Me!”
    My choice is Chiara. Second choice is Eone… Have to love a dragon with a good figure and personality… note the order…
    -R-

  • Deadmen008

    Finally! I get to see Kess get her comeuppance! :D

    I recently got into this series, and I have to say, I love it! I only wish I found this comic sooner. It to me forever to read every strip. Keep it up sir!

    And I vote for Lady Red. :)

  • Bman36033

    1: that has to hurt alot XD
    2: nice referense to snakes on a plane.

  • Sojourner

    Kess gets what’s coming to her, and Briella high-tails it out of there.
    For the hypothetical figure nomination: As always, my vote goes to Gaia.

  • Agen

    Heh, uhm BOO!

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Thanks! So glad to have you along, and thanks for the kind words. I hope to keep serving up the sexy violence for a long time to come. Hope you’ll continue to join us every Monday.

    Kess getting her comeuppance is quite satisfying, even for me. She got so good at making people hate her that I knew it’d be immensely satisfying when she finally got her ass kicked. I decided it’d send an even bigger message if it was at the hands (and thighs) of her fellow Tigers.

    And your nomination for Lady Red gets her on the ballot! Woohoo! ^o^

  • http://www.yootahwrites.webs.com Ecthelion Yuda

    SO….MANY…..BADASS…..REFERENCES…….

  • Kobra

    The Ennek-conda huh? I see that as being a cross with the walls of Jericho and the scorpion death lock. Briella defiantly has a good idea following the water. It can ether lead her to the way out if it is an external source of water, or it can lead her to the main source in witch case she can finally get rid of her sent and throe the tigers off her trail for good. Win win!

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Briella would agree that you have good taste in Dragons.

    And your nomination for Queen Oscura has been noted. ^__^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Briella’s a lot of fun to work with, and she’s developed such great chemistry with her Tiger pursuers, albeit in an adversarial way. Now the question is whether she’ll make it out alive. o_O

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Glad you love the 7th panel! Naisha channels her inner Samuel L. Jackson. There’s one inside us all. ^o^

    Ennek’s been percolating for a while. The kettle finally whistled. Time to brew up some piping hot whoop-ass! >o<

    And Briella just wanted to express her feelings to her pursuers. Such a cheeky gesture. ~__^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Can’t blame Briella for not mincing words. ^__^

    Since Eone’s already on the ballot, I’ll count your first nomination for Lady Chiara. Thanks, Rumblepurr!

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Glad you like the panels in the upper half. I argued with a couple different layout designs before figuring this one out. Looks like it worked. ^__^

    An old acquaintance of mine was actually an amateur professional wrestler on the weekends. He put me in a submission hold, which I couldn’t name to save my life, but it stretched every muscle on the side of my body. It hurt like a bastard while he was applying it, and I promptly cried out like a little girl for him to release it. As soon as he did, the pain stopped. Only hurts during its application. I have an idea of what Kess is feeling right now. She’s gonna be real limber afterwards. ^o^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Both great choices. I’ll take that as one nod for each. ^__^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Boo? Why boo? I say, YAY for a new follower! ^o^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    1. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, or a Tiger having an annoying day.

    2. Thanks! People are really digging that bit. It’s the series’ first uncensored F-bomb, so I wanted to do it right! ^o^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    We don’t mind her tail being nice and high. ~__^

    And that’s a nomination for Gaia. Kickin’ it old school! ^o^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Be still, thy beating heart! ^__^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Agreed. The question is whether she’ll get there in one piece. The remaining Tigers’ anger level is approaching 9,000. ^__^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    That is, IF she sees her. Briella’s not home free yet.

  • Finlass

    hmm have we see to mutch Dragon Ball Razor? :D

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Actually, ironically, I’m not a big “Dragon Ball” fan. But I have seen various episodes of “DBZ: Abridged.” That’s gotta count for something, right? ^__^

  • Darkguyver2020

    Okay, in all seriousness, I’d like to list some observations I’ve made. I may be one of your newer readers here (I started at around page 250) but I have taken time to read the entire webcomic from the beginning.
    Ever since your original writer, Donnie, jumped ship, there has been a noticeable decline in the storytelling. The proof is in the pudding with this chapter. There has been a somewhat excessive amount of fanservice, cussing and dated internet references crammed into it since you took the helm. In addition, you have let this Briella chase scene “drag on” (u c wut I did thar?) longer than it should have. By all rights, it should have ended once Shie got her paws on her.
    Regardless, your artwork is top notch and I will continue reading despite my criticisms. But try to tone down on the points I’ve listed so not to let the story suffer as a result. Remember, “All things in moderation”.

  • Xyn

    Don’t mind that your prey is getting away, go on, keep fighting.
    I think I’ll put a couple votes in for that possible figure: first, as you say above, ‘kickin it old school’ with a vote for Gaia, and a secondary vote for Fuegana, for no reason, other than I like her character.
    ( in response to darkguyvers comment, I think its actually gotten better since you took over. Take as much time as you want to tell your story )

  • DragonForLife10

    excessive amount of fanservice? EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF FANSERVICE?

    Son, i am dissapoint.

  • Finlass

    well there is no fanservice here if you read the hole webcomic and get some back ground storry you shout now by now why shie let her go and why that happens you don’t see the big picture becaus your still missing peaces of the puzzel to understand each char that is here in

    Just think about that

  • Kobra

    Figures you’d want it to end with Briella getting caught and killed. But as for the “Excessive fan service,” part, it’s the icing on the cake man. You can’t have cake without icing!

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Wow.

    I could act all butt-hurt about this, but I’m really not. You bring up a lot of good points, and you’re right that I probably need to balance things out a little better. I also agree that this storyline has dragged on a little longer than I’d originally planned, but the ending is very near, so thanks for your ongoing patience. I was never very good with endings, and I’m learning a lot about this whole writing thing as I go along.

    A good friend of mine recently reminded me of a quote by comic guru Scott McCloud, who said, “Write what you want to read. If all else fails, you’ll at least have a faithful reader.” When I inherited the writer role on this comic, I looked back at the comic and realized that the boredom and tedium that the audience was exhibiting was fully mirrored in my own emotions. There came a point where I asked myself whether “Draconia Chronicles,” the comic series, the world, and the characters in it that I created, would be something that I’d be likely to read, and I realized that the answer had become “no.”

    I set out to transform the series into a much more dynamic creation. Not wanting it to be pigeonholed into a single genre, I wanted the series to have elements of drama, comedy, action, adventure, romance, violence, and yes, sex. I wanted to throw occasional bones to movie buffs, video game nerds, internet geeks, and animation fans. In other words, I wanted the series to be virtually everything I personally wanted in a webcomic.

    As for the issue of fan service, the very reason “The Draconia Chronicles” came into existence back in 1999 was to showcase exotic anthropomorphic cheesecake. I’ve never denied this fact. The Tigers wear very little, and the Dragons are all completely naked. This is not by accident. And the fact that a set of calendars showing off shapely Dragon ladies would eventually turn into this creative outlet still blows my mind. I feel immensely lucky to be able to draw this comic every week, and luckier to be able to show it here on Katbox alongside such popular titles as “Las Lindas” and “Caribbean Blue,” and even luckier still to have such a receptive audience show up to read it each week. Furthermore, I feel incredible when I see how much emotional investment so many of you have come to have in the characters in the past year and a half that I’ve been at the writing helm. It lets me know that all the sweat-equity I put into each page is worthwhile.

    I absolutely see your point that a little bit more moderation in some areas might be beneficial, and that the best diet is indeed a balanced one. Man cannot subsist on candy alone. I’ll take a more critical look at the comic’s content, all the while staying true to my personal goals for the series, and I thank you for the gracious manner in which you articulated your comments. I sincerely appreciate it, and most of all, in spite of the criticism, I wholeheartedly thank you for your continued loyalty as a reader. You have no idea what that means to me. It’s one thing to be thought of highly by your readers, and it’s another thing for them to want you to be even better. With your help, I hope to get there, and I hope you and everyone reading this continue to join me for the ride.

    Thanks, Darkguyver! ^__^

  • Kobra

    Wow, I remember when you were on me about letting Razorfox tell the story the way he wants to tell it and now look at you. Hippocrit!

  • Darkguyver2020

    No, Son. I am “disappointed” in you. (yes, I know the meme. Illiteracy is not something to be proud of).
    A webcomic should not have to rely on gratuitous amounts of tits and ass to hold a reader’s attention. The story is what sucked me in and kept me reading to this point.
    I’m not some prude who gets all uptight when he sees naked furry girly parts. But Razorfox shouldn’t overdo it.

  • DragonForLife10

    i read this because its fun, not for the fanservice. although the fanservice is fun XD

  • Xyn

    “I’m not some prude who gets all uptight when he sees naked furry girly parts.” Then explain the term paper you call a comment, and the others in the stack of comments, that has you complaining about elements beyond your control. You also seem to enjoy shooting down others, which is quite evident in that you repeat your argumentation in paragraph form in response to whoever opposes your view, which seems to be Kobra more often than not. In conclusion, put your views out once, and if they are acted upon, good for you. Otherwise, take it to the forums, and complain there. I’m almost positive no one wants to hear it in the comments. If the elements of a prospering story become too much, there’s the ‘close tab/window’ button, no one’s making you read.

  • Darkguyver2020

    I love how people fail to grasp the concept of criticism around here. It seems that Razorfox, whom the comment was aimed at, is the only one who isn’t acting all butthurt about it. This is exactly why he should tone down the fanservice, because the comic is clearly catering only to brainless morons that care only about their daily fix of scaly/furry porn.
    “Don’t read it if you don’t like it”.
    Here’s the thing, I DO like it. I’m very interested in seeing how this feud with the Dragons and Tigers will play out. And while I do enjoy the fanservice, too much can be overkill. Twokinds made that mistake. I’m just trying to help Razorfox not do the same.

  • Darkguyver2020

    As for Kobra. He’s just an immature little brat whose parents are clearly doing a poor job of monitoring his web activity.

  • Finlass

    If you see how pissed ennek is i don’t think she will cool down that fast and kess has some problems now *g*

  • Darkguyver2020

    So two naked tigresses wrestling, a variation of a “Snakes on a plane” quote and a decoy of Briella spanking her ass isn’t fanservice? Sure…. I’ll take your word for it.
    And I would think about it if I could read the rest of your unintelligible comment…

  • Kobra

    Still it’s now down to the twins and the airhead Kenzi. Briella has got this.

  • Layle

    Action figures? Briella ofcourse! I vote Briella! <3

  • Darkguyver2020

    Oh trust me, I’m a fan of icing, just like any person. But you wouldn’t pour a heaping bucket of it on your cake. That would ruin it and could give you bad tummy ache if you tried to eat it.
    A webcomic’s story is like the cake and the fan service is the icing. It needs to be spread thinly so not to ruin it. That’s what killed Twokinds for me.

  • THEHashtagHEEL

    I think Ennek should’ve tried the Yes! Lock.

  • Sleel

    TwoKinds is my first webcomic. Read it all, still do. Nothing there I would count as fanservice. Except to someone looking for an excuse to get their panties in a bunch. Not even seen a link to nsfw versions. Vote incentives don’t count.

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    And to think there was a time when you doubted. ^__^

  • Hoj_poj

    The next poll is going to be fricking massive.

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Well, many would agree that Kess brought this upon herself. Reap what you sow. ~__^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Thanks for the kind words. I won’t spoil the ending, but we’re quite close to the end of the chapter. I’m ready to move on, too. ^__^

    I’ve noted your nomination for Fuegana–interesting choice! Also, your nomination for Gaia gets her on the ballot. ^o^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Anything can still happen. ~_^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Good catch on Briella’s mission! In fact, my original plan was simply to have her witness some Tigers milling around outside the Calera as she hid in some nearby bushes. Then I figured that it’d be more fun to have her go inside. True story! I decided that I’d created this new character, and I didn’t want to have her just be a body with a couple lines to say. I wanted to get some miles out of her. Judging by how you all have taken to her, I’d say she’s doing just fine.

    As for your nominations, Princess Lumina is actually already on the ballot. Your nod for Briella just got her on there, though she might be too amazing to be an action figure. ^__^

  • DragonForLife10

    LONG POST O.O

    i actually read the whole thing O-o

    Sorry people, no TL:DR for you in this comment.

  • Hoj_poj

    Man cannot subsist on candy alone? CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

  • Darkguyver2020

    It’s spelled “Hypocrite”, stupid. Would it kill you to use a spell checker?
    But yes, I guess I did say that. But I was referring more to the plot. Things like eye candy, swearing and pop culture references however are just minor additions and could kill a story if used excessively.

  • Kobra

    Would it kill you not to be such a nit picker.

  • Darkguyver2020

    Would it kill you to learn to take criticism.
    Seriously, read Razorfox’s responses. I’m helping him by bringing these things to his attention.

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Well, so far, there are six names on it, so it’s not the biggest poll I’ve ever run.

    So far, the ballot is comprised of:

    – Elektra
    – Eone
    – Princess Lumina
    – Lady Red
    – Briella
    – Gaia

    Those are the only ones who’ve received two separate nominations here in the comments, but there’s still time to add others. ^__^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    It’s all good. Every page is a learning experience.

    As for your nomination, I’ve taken note of it. Let’s see if Kighan makes the ballot. ^__^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Another nod for Briella. Her support continues to grow. Interesting… ^__^

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Yes! Yes! Yes! ^o^

  • Kobra

    I’d go with which ever one has the best horns and assets.

  • mewr13

    Well then, this has been an interesting comic update. My vote is for Fuegana with a sammich and/or Arc…..I can’t decide which one >_<.

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Well, Fuegana’s already on the ballot. The sammich is not guaranteed right now, though. ^__^;;

    But your nomination for Arc is the first for her, so I’ll put her on the list. If someone else nominates her, she’ll be on the ballot this Monday.

  • Kobra

    If you do make one of Gia please don’t add a detachable head…

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    LOL! It’ll be fully attached, I assure you. Besides, if you all are anything like me, that detachable head would get lost in no time flat. ^__^;;

  • Zhacuro

    Great comic so far Razor, Kess has had this coming for awhile cause of that “punch first look later” reflex. I’ll drop a vote for Eone, and Oscura as secondary

  • http://draconia.katbox.net RazorFox

    Indeed, she did. Kess got a pass from Ennek the first time, but not anymore. ^__^

    As for your nominations, both Eone and Queen Oscura are on the ballot now. Voting begins soon. Be there! ^o^

  • http://clasesdechicasgato.info/ Capt. leon

    why ths comic is not in TOPWEBCOMICS.COM?, because is great!
