Howdy, fellow Draconiacs!  RazorFox here. So will Shie and Kess be able to coexist, for Riah‘s sake?  Stay tuned…  ~__^ Those of you looking for a soundtrack for this page can pull up “Thank U” by Alanis Morissette. I want to take a moment to shamelessly plug a new project by a couple old friends of mine.  Those of you who’ve been following The Draconia Chronicles since the webcomic’s earliest days might remember that I had assistance from a teammate named Jen Starling, who expertly handled the gray tones for the comic’s first couple years.  Back in 2005, she and her twin sister Renee launched a webcomic of their own, called Tales From New Winter.  Unfortunately, it was cut short due to various circumstances, but the bug to make comics never quite got out of them.  And thus, the Starling Twins have decided to reboot and relaunch Tales From New Winter.  If you want a fun, swashbuckling anthropomorphic adventure, you’re going to want to give this a look.  Hit up their site [link] and check it out!  Tell ’em RazorFox sentcha! And with that, it’s back to work on next week’s page.  What will happen next?  Be here to find out.  Take care, my fellow Draconiacs, and thanks for reading! =RazorFox.

    Remember, Shie! There’s no “I” in “Team”… although you CAN get “meat”… and that is what Chiara will be be once you get your paws on her!

    • Meat is murder(ed).

      • MaveriKat

        And tasty too! I’m sure once Chiara is tenderized through a thorough pounding of Tigress fists she’ll make for a nice chile… just make sure Lumina doesn’t eat any.

        • Panzer88

          Slow roasted with teriyaki sauce please>:D

        • Kobra

          Now that’s just sick!

          • MaveriKat

            Yes, but after find out what Chiara did, after we were given a year-long build-up to get to know the woman as she kept Lumina alive… it felt like an incredible betrayal.

          • Mr. E

            What did Chiara do? 🙁

          • nightarix

            gave riah that wound if i recall right, can’t say for certain though, been too long since i re-read the archives, particurally the parts involving this group.

          • Kobra

            Don’t forget it was that very group that killed Chiara’s mother when all she was doing was transporting an egg.

        • Mr. E

          Are you some type of wacked-out wacko with a brain that’s slow-mo?! That’s just wrong! >M<

        • Tech

          Let’s not piss off Cartman anymore, ok?

    • MrAMP

      So wait, she was mad at Shie because of the whole eye thing or did I miss something there?

      Also, I guess she’s not that excited about Kess anymore. *Jokingly* Jeez, I wonder why.

      • Now that Riah’s talking, more details on how her eye got injured will be revealed. Hang tight. ~__^

    • Tech

      There’s no “U” in team either. And if I’m not on the team and you’re not on the team, no-ones on the f***ing team. The team sucks.

  • razorburn645

    Hmmm, perhaps Shie isn’t too thrilled about teaming up with Kess.

    • Yet another casualty of the Khalira.

      • razorburn645

        Also I have to say, I knew the Riah was smaller but man she is petit.

        • It’s partly that, and partly that Shie’s just damn big. She’s about 6′ 4″ and about 270 pounds. Not exactly “fun-sized.” ^__^;;

          • razorburn645

            True, but she seems small even against the others in the group. At least to me.

          • She’s still slightly taller than Kess, who’s still the runt of this group. As I get more Tigers back together into the same scene, relative heights will become more apparent, but Shie is the tallest, followed by Rula and Naisha.

          • Panzer88

            I was always under the impression that the tigers from this universe were much larger than humans from our own. Not that 6’4″ and 270 pounds isn’t big, but judging by the way their drawn they look more like 8, or 9 feet and around 300 pounds.

          • Kobra

            Depends on the “fun.” Giggady!

          • BlackWind

            Woo my kinda gal (doesn’t make me feel so heavy then) and 4 inches taller than me now That’s Fun XD

  • Xch3l

    So, all Shie (got it? Shie, she? Man I’m so unfunny :P) needed was lamprey all this time, huh? That means that you can make a tiger talk by giving them food? And vengeance, that works too!

    I hope that Kess and Shie can make it for Riah. You don’t want to have friendly fire on your team, right Riah?

    • We’ll see if Riah can be the peacemaker between the two…

  • Thanks for the shout out! We can only live up to the fuzzy, buckling of swashes that Draconia Chronicles readers have come to expect.

    • The pleasure’s all mine! Always happy to help a friend and fellow webcomicker, even the born-again kind. ^__^

    • Kobra

      Also not shore that they are much of a team. Kess in particular isn’t a good team player.

      • It might depend on what the team’s objectives are. If it means permanently grounding Dragons, then Kess might actually be a key player.

  • XMinusOne

    Mmmm … lamprey. Served on a bed of wild rice and green peas, no doubt. 😀

    • In another universe, maybe, but Tigers aren’t known for being gourmets. ^__^

      • Panzer88

        I just googled lamprey……eww. >_<

      • Tech

        I’m still surprised they cook at all…

    • Anonprtyhrd

      I would think jasmin rice maybe mixed with a bit of wild rice or put some mushrooms with arborio rice and make a risotto?? 🙂

  • Hiorou

    Que gusto ver la siguiente pagina, me deja expectante, es especial por saber que piensa realmente Riah de todo el asunto, ya que no a tenido la oportunidad de desarrollarse como personaje a pesar de aparecer tan atrás en el comic.

    • Ojalá, nos contará lo que piensa de todo esto, y que se ponga al día con las otras.

      • Hiorou

        Ademas veo conflicto venir! Riah aun considera a Kess como parte del grupo, Shie no tanto, oh al menos empieza a experimentar problemas y choques de interés con Kess (Y por alguna razón creo que tal vez la opinión de Riah sobre los dragones puede ser más concordante con la de Kess, pero esto es mera especulación)

        Hey, ¿ Recibiste mi mensaje anterior on FA? Pareciera que el problema se diera solo en la pagina anterior pero no estoy del todo segura.

        • Surun the Scroll-writer

          Heh well someone still sounds like they have a bone to pick with Kess or rather harbors annoyance(or worse) towards her. Unsurprising as that is. Let’s wait and see what happens. 😮

          • We’ll see if Kess and Shie can work together again. Soon… ~__^

        • Sí, lo vi. Que bueno que no parece ser un problema mas grande.

          • Hiorou

            De momento parece ser asi.

  • Slasheredge

    I see a great conflict coming in the near tiger future.

    • A schism, perhaps? A civil war? Stay tuned… ~__^

      • ElektraFan

        Now i understand why dragons and tigers are at war: vicious cycle of vengeance. Just see what Kess is doing right now. She wants all the dragons dead for murdering her mother. And of course a dragon closed to the one Kess killed won´t let her get away with that and her grief is turned into revenge against all tigers. And the tiger closest to the one who was killed by that dragon wants revenge too. And the vicious cycle continues until both sides are death. As long as personal vengeance is the reason for justifying this endless blood bath, the war will continue.

        • Now you’re getting it. ^__^

          • Panzer88

            Are we ever going to see what the original cause of the war was? Somehow I feel like the Foxes secretly orchestrated it from behind the scenes. Possibly for past transgressions made against them, following a previous war with both the Dragons and Tigers. Similar to how the Belkan grey men from Ace Combat 5 pitted Osea, and Yuktobania, against each other to cause them to destroy one another, as revenge for loosing the Belkan war in Ace Combat Zero.

          • Mr. E

            There IS more to this war than we all realize…

          • Mr. Al

            makes you think about Yoda at the end of ep2, y’know?

          • nightarix

            the war could also just be the first stage of the foxes plan, make two enemies that would normally unite against them, fight each other and weaken themselves till the foxes feel the time is right. then wipeout/enslave them both at the same time.

          • Tech

            I firmly believe it has to do with someone saying “yes, that loincloth makes you look fat”.

        • somebody

          Why does that really, really remind me of Naruto?
          Senju and Uchiha wars, anyone?

    So, from what I understand, this is all about getting revenge. I understand that after taking family AND an eye, it can be hard to forgive. But what goes around comes around, and this seems to be a never-ending cycle.

    EVALUATION TIME!

    Tigers seem to be losing, but not THAT badly. Tigers are awesome, leader….no comment. Dragons are amazing, leader….no. Speaking of leaders, we haven’t seen Kiriad in a while.

    —————————————————————————————————————-

    TEAMWORK SOLVES EVERYTHING! MOST OF THE TIME!!!

    (Sorry. Ate a lot of chocolate. Major sugar rush. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m about to run laps around my house.)

    • All good observations. Hope your sugar crash is a gentle one. ^__^

    Ok Someone need to ask an A.P.Q(armor piercing question) “You want revenge for lost eye, and the toture you went through? Sure go on ahead, but answer this question “What did your kind did to hers? How many loved ones you taken away? What has your kind taken away from her? Finally, What would revenge solve you get your revenge then what make yourself and your kind a target of the vegance from the loved ones of the dragon you killled?” Pretty much I hope someone goes ghost rider and make both sides feel the pain of their victims,But its good she is talking, but I dont think the team will get along very well with the whole shie refusing to kill mindlessly, and Ennek becoming a peacenik gthing going on. Keep up the good work.

    • Kobra

      That is a dame good question, hopefully someone will ask it. But better phrased.

    • Thanks for the compliment! And they’re all good questions. It sounds like you’ve got a good understanding of the endless cycle the Dragons and Tigers find themselves in.

    You know, the fates can be cruel sometimes. Shie’s vengeance mission could have already been completed already. If only Riah was conscious enough to have made a positive ID on the intended target when they passed by each other earlier during their escape.

    Now Riah wants to go work with Kess to help accomplish this goal. That’s just too cruel.

    At least I’m certain that Shie might have been able to recognize her intended target from the Briella clone. But I’m not really sure how good of a look she got at her during their initial flight.

    • Shie might not’ve noticed the Chiara decoy, but Riah sure did.

    Wars of this nature come from the adage: “An eye for an eye – tooth for a tooth….” (Exodus 21:24) The trouble is, as Tevye observes in “Fiddler on the Roof, following such a course of action is that the world would end up ‘blind and toothless’. All it takes for this type of war to continue is one person who will not let the feud and their anger fade away.

    • And there’s no shortage of those people in the Draconiaverse, I assure you.

    Would Riah date a wolf if he was nice and would protect her from any more dragons?

      1) There’s no “dating” in this setting, it more-or-less goes “Phwoar, look at ’em muscles! Fancy a shag?”
      2) mating would very likely result in anaphylactic shock for her and a rash for you.

  • you know who!

    muscles…
