Howdy, fellow Draconiacs!  RazorFox here.

Kess put forward her argument last week, so now it’s time for Ennek‘s rebuttal.  Sounds like it didn’t go over too well with Kess.  Where do we go from here?  Stay tuned…

Those of you looking for a soundtrack for this page can pull up “If I Were You” by Hoobastank.

And I don’t really have anything to add this week.  This week was the “spring forward” weekend here in the United States, marking the beginning of daylight-saving time.  It’s where we, as a country, celebrate how much we love sleep by willingly sacrificing an hour of it, so I’m up, but my bed is calling me back.  It would be rude not to answer.

See you all here next week!  Take care, my fellow Draconiacs, and thanks for reading!

=RazorFox.

    And she was doing so well too. Then she had to go and ruin it by rambling on about a truce with the dragons. Should have just stuck with “blood” argument and left it at that.

    • Some people just don’t know how to stop talking. ^__^;

    someones getting cranky! ^-^

  • MrAMP

    Well, so much for my idea of some sort of relationship. Although, Kess has been known to get angry, which could lead to some angry…– 😯

    As I was saying, I guess peace wont be an option here.

    • At least not for now. Some things, Kess just won’t allow herself to consider.

  • Mr. E

    Say RazorFox, the Archive button has been glitchy as of late can you or anyone notify the “Katbox Wizard” about this please?

    • We’re very aware of it. It has to do with a problem with the new WordPress install we’re using. It current acts as a “Random” button. I’m told we’re not too far from rectifying the problem. Thanks for your patience.

      • Mr. E

        You’re welcome! (^o^)

  • MaveriKat

    Oh shoot! She’s dissing Shie! Kess better quiet down or she’s in for a tail-kicking!

    • There’s definitely a size difference to consider. Remember, Goliath won a ton of fights before meeting David.

      • MaveriKat

        Somehow, I doubt Kess has David’s intuitiveness…

    Ennek, you have made your way onto the list of people who actually think sensibly in that group. I wonder…..what would Kess do if a dragon happened to help her in some way. Will she be completely ungrateful and kill the poor creature, or will she rethink the whole thing. Because, as I see it, there are no bad guys in this war (unless you call a ruler who is willing to erase her own daughter’s happiest memories evil), just creatures, er, people trying to survive in a world where nobody is on your side. Even when you think you can trust somebody, I’m pretty sure that this group of tigers can prove otherwise.

    Translation: So what if they killed your mother? ONE dragon did that, and ONE dragon was raised by your sister. If that isn’t proof enough that you guys can live in peace, then I suggest that you pack your bags and go back with Kiriad, because you’re making as much sense as her right now!

    4 people that can end the war (potentially):

    1. Kilani
    2. Lumina/Chuki
    3. Ennek
    4. Eone? (Just a thought, maybe, maybe not…)

    • Kess has proven herself a tough nut to crack. Maybe Ennek’s planted a seed in Kess’ mind.

      • Wolfheart811

        Was the seed planted by her words? Or by the rock?

        • LOL! Guess you’ve gotta dig a hole before dropping the seed in. ^o^

          And is Kess a tough nut to crack? Or just her head?

    Yup, Ennek and Kilani are now sharing the top spot for my favourite tigers.

    • Ennek’s movin’ on up… to the east si-ide… To a dee-luxe apartment in the sky-yi-yi…

  • ThatOneComment

    Looked like the conversation was going alright, then Kess went and snapped like a b**** on PMS pills. Well, maybe not THAT bad, but she’s acting like a pain in the ass, and I don’t care if it’s because of her past. Ennek and Kilani have the right idea(Shie too, who stopped killing).

    • Certainly sounds like Kess might be part of a waning majority–maybe even a shrinking minority, soon. Will she ever find redemption? We shall see… ~__^

      • Brit

        I agree with Ennek

        • I also agree with Ennek, it WOULD be nice if everyone stopped fighting, but then we wouldn’t have a story. ^_^

          • Draven’s got the right idea. ^__^

          • tjb123456

            well razorfox you got your work cut out for ya. becouse now we have yet to see one dragon that is sympathetic to peace and we have 2 tigers that do.

          • Oh, you’ve met her, actually. In fact, it’s not so much a “her” as it is a “them.” ~__^

          • tjb123456

            oh, right earth dragons. forgot. though I’m not sure it technically counts. I’m sure it does but I’ll have to be honest. personal motivation feels more “authentic” to me. mostly because their philosophy sounds more like a guideline then conviction.

          • LoneWolf

            dont forget about the male dragons they were against the war from the start in fact they left because of it

          • alex_longfur

            Well now, it’s about time at least one of them considered a truce! Alas, it is but wistful thinking…

          • Someone’s got to have the dream.

        I do wonder one thing though, as I have a lot of thinking time from not sleeping, will you ever color the early pages of DC? If not is fine, I do kind of hope the earliest pages will be changed from GIFs though, I can’t change them myself without lowering the clarity/perfection(I had a simple word for this, similar to value, but I can’t think it) of the image.

    • ElektraFan

      It is incredible that neither Kess nor Ennnek didn’t realize yet that the egg Kilani raised was the same that Red and the other dragons had in their possession. And Kess redeeming herself? Oh please. The day when i see a vampire donating
      blood or a male dragon laying an egg it will be the day that Kess will
      redeem herself.

  • who is SHIE??

    • If you’re just now joining us, Shie (and her sister Riah) are the remaining pair of Tigers that we haven’t checked in with on this scene. Hopefully, you’ve got Ennek and Kess’ names down, though. ^__^

      noooooo, not the frowny angry tiger grin. It be saaaaad. Need more fanservice to turn that tiger frown upside down!

          Y’know, Kess’ attitude on the whole can be summed up in a quote from Ren and Stimpy.

    Looks like Kess is still a stubborn ass. Perhaps another rock might fix that.

    Oh , sound like Ennnek is becoming a peacenik. Based on Kess look she not too happy about the thought though Ennek needs to use RockThrow. Know what Kilanni and Ennek and other peaceniks needs too unleash the eye of tiger, and defend there position on the war. I wonder if kilianni will end up making her own faction made up of tigers and dragons sort of like a tiger-dragon peace alliance?

    • The future may still hold a surprise or two. ~__^

  • pride-and-parliament

    Kess: “You goddamn hippies… *grumble* *grumble*”
    Of course, Kess does have a point. If they don’t attack the dragons, they’ll have to have heavy protection if they don’t want to be sitting ducks. Even then, if the dragons DON’T stop attacking and the tigers DO, the dragons are just going to keep attacking them until they wither away their defenses. I think there are more dragons than tigers, correct? So the tigers will probably be defeated before the dragons are.
    Interestingly, it seems world peace on a two-civilization country is essentially equivalent to the prisoner’s dilemma (basically how the money is distributed in Bachelor Pad).
    I suppose they could try to leave– but they have a lot of resources there, including the keepers of the Y chromosome. Though technically, I suppose they could get away with just one and use him as the “king” bee to the dragons’ queen bee– that is how the draconian society works, right? The only one permitted to mate is the monarch, Queen Oscura? (Aside: Just remembered “oscura” is a Spanish adjective; some all-purpose definitions might be “opaque” or “shadowy.”

    …Why do I sometimes talk so much on the internet? o.o

    • razorburn645

      I was under the impression that the Tigers had a serious number advantage and that the use of magic as well as flight is what gave the Dragons the edge.

      • The Tigers do, actually. The Dragons, while fewer in number, are more powerful individually, and certainly seem to be more organized.

        • pride-and-parliament

          OK, maybe it’s not as doomed as I thought, then.
          Still very risky, but not 100% doomed to failure. Though I suppose we should take into account the risk of battle. …Anyway, it will be hard to stop the inertia of this battle. How do you talk soldiers thirsting for blood out of fighting altogether?
          Not to mention their bigoted conceptions they have of the other species…

          No, I don’t think this plan would be a good strategy to enact now…

        • Kobra

          If Oscura wasn’t so dame picky about who got a kid and grew the dragon population more then they would have the tigers on the run.

  • Kess mentality would fit rather well in the WH40K context. I’m guessing that she has those lines in her head all the time:
    My armor is contempt
    My shield is disgust
    My sword is hatred
    In the Tigers’ name
    Let none survive
    (I’m in my Imperial mood right now)

    • Ooh, that’s good stuff. Sums her up perfectly!

    • Mr. Al

      We need some good intervention here, shit is defnietly gonna hit the fan for both sides, the way things are going. Doesn’t have to be “divine intervention” (heck i don’t even know if there are any higher beings in that universe), but some strong understanding of moral and reason from a joined tiger-dragon attempt is needed.
      The Armor of Righteousness
      The Helm of Salvation
      The Belt of Truth
      The Shield of Faith
      The Sword of The Spirit
      Shod with The Gospel of Peace
      Someone needs to take up those arms, challenge Kess to a duel and snap her out of it, before she ruins both herself and everyone around her. -_^

    • william

      i don’t think kess is gonna be swayed by words on this matter, or at all. she seems too steeped in rage, it’s blinding her, like most church figures in the past were blinded by their pride of lack of sin, to see the clear answer right in front of her. sad to say it, but kess seems like a lost cause.

      • Jerohan

        AAaaaaaand with that my respect for Kess just plumeted, and my respect for Ennek just soared to new hights.

        • I’ll update the scoreboard. ^__^

        • Mr. E

          Mine too, all Kess ever thinks about is killing every dragon on the planet, even if some are against the war. Sooner or later if this keeps up, she might even any of her own kind if they get in her way of twisted vengeance. I HOPE that never happens. (€ -m-);

        • Professor Fate

          Culturally and developmentally the Tigers seem to be stalled in the Neolithic era. Crafting more efficient weapons and more logical battle tactics would enable them to exploit their superior numbers more effectively against the Dragons with their innate abilities to control the elements. Achieving a parity in combat/warfare would allow peace negotiations to begin, but not before.

      I dont think so, they dont look alike at all, and for what she (Ennek) said (and what I`ve seen) Scyde doesnt have cubs so that will erase her as an option.

        • Mr. E

          Me too.

    • Nobody

      That sums it up. Not only voices of compassion, but any voice of reason, is gonna be shot down and excommunicated at BEST, this war isn’t just a war for them, it’s a STATE OF BEING. The idea of the war ending in any other way other than the complete extermination of the other side isn’t even part of their brain function. But realistically, while both sides try their hardest to kill each other when they run across them, they don’t seem to have any organized designs at destroying each other other than one queen trying her own child into a super-weapon.

      This isn’t a fight between nations, or ideals, or blood feud between families. It’s not like any war humanity had fought with itself. This is the jungle law ‘kill or be killed!’

      Even the ones saying ‘why not just NOT kill each other?’ are pretty much considered crazy. Because other side is NOT composed of people from their perspective. From their POV, they’re trying to humanize rabid wolves.

    Bad to ask Kess what she thinks. If she’s thinking anything at all, it’s usually bad.

    • Gotta respect her conviction, though.

      • Kobra

        Not really, no.

        • Mr. E

          Me too.

  • Jerohan

    AAaaaaaand with that my respect for Kess just plumeted, and my respect for Ennek just soared to new hights.

    • I’ll update the scoreboard. ^__^

    • Mr. E

      Mine too, all Kess ever thinks about is killing every dragon on the planet, even if some are against the war. Sooner or later if this keeps up, she might even any of her own kind if they get in her way of twisted vengeance. I HOPE that never happens. (€ -m-);

    But, but… If there’s no truce…there’s no Sandy Claws…

    • There IS a Sandy Claws! You just gotta believe!

      • Maluc

        Just curious… was that a PaRappa reference or just a coincidence?

        • I’ve never played PaRappa before, so chalk it up as a cool coincidence. I’ve just got a funky flow like that. ~__^

    well razorfox you got your work cut out for ya. becouse now we have yet to see one dragon that is sympathetic to peace and we have 2 tigers that do.

    • Oh, you’ve met her, actually. In fact, it’s not so much a “her” as it is a “them.” ~__^

      • tjb123456

        oh, right earth dragons. forgot. though I’m not sure it technically counts. I’m sure it does but I’ll have to be honest. personal motivation feels more “authentic” to me. mostly because their philosophy sounds more like a guideline then conviction.

        • LoneWolf

          dont forget about the male dragons they were against the war from the start in fact they left because of it

  • alex_longfur

    Well now, it’s about time at least one of them considered a truce! Alas, it is but wistful thinking…

    • Someone’s got to have the dream.

    That sums it up. Not only voices of compassion, but any voice of reason, is gonna be shot down and excommunicated at BEST, this war isn’t just a war for them, it’s a STATE OF BEING. The idea of the war ending in any other way other than the complete extermination of the other side isn’t even part of their brain function. But realistically, while both sides try their hardest to kill each other when they run across them, they don’t seem to have any organized designs at destroying each other other than one queen trying her own child into a super-weapon.

  • Professor Fate

    Culturally and developmentally the Tigers seem to be stalled in the Neolithic era. Crafting more efficient weapons and more logical battle tactics would enable them to exploit their superior numbers more effectively against the Dragons with their innate abilities to control the elements. Achieving a parity in combat/warfare would allow peace negotiations to begin, but not before.

    The closest thing I can compare this conflict to, is the war between Germany and Russia, or America and Japan during the seconed world war. Both sides trying to kill as many of the other as possible, with each one seeing the other as subhuman scum to be annihilated. A no holds barred fight, where there can be no peace, only victory.

    The closest thing thing in human history that I can compare this conflict to, is the war between Germany and Russia, or America and Japan during the second world war. Both sides trying to kill as many of the other as possible, and viewing their enemies as nothing more than subhuman scum to be wiped out. A no holds barred fight, where there can be no peace, only victory.

    Why exactly are the earth dragons left out of combat? Wouldn’t they’re ability to control the earth make them able to cause massive earthquakes in the specific areas where the tiger’s armies are? Or pick up entire mountains and then drop them on whole tiger cities? It just seems odd that the queen would be so prejudice against them, and not consider them a valuble resource to the war effort.

    • Mr. E

      I have to admit, that IS odd, but wouldn’t that put a strain on their health doing earth magick like what you described?

    • Hiorou

      Thats is because (for what i`ve seen) earth dragons got a philosophy of no violence, attack just if selfdefense.

      In real term, yes, earth dragons got a great potential for fight and make damage, but they refuse to use it, so they, in terms with the war, are maybe in some degree agains it. They look like they enjoy create building more than the idea of fight, Eone even say that there just a little minority of earth dragons that actually wanted to fight.

      So, is not that earth dragons doesnt have ability, they just dont want to use it for war an conflict,this, under the queen perspective (AND other dragons) they can be percived as a wasterd potential power.

    • Tech

      Personally, I think they’d be suited to a role more like a siege engineer, throwing up trenchworks or ramparts and the like
