Howdy, fellow Draconiacs!  RazorFox here. So it’s back to the Dragons, and it looks like there might be a bit of friction between the Fire Dragons and the Earth Dragons.  Will the two sides be able to function as a cohesive unit?  Stay tuned… Those of you looking for a soundtrack to this page can pull up “Icky Thump” by The White Stripes. This coming weekend of November 1 through 3, you can join me, along with fellow Katboxers Nekonny (Caribbean Blue), Sage (YOSH! Saga), and MasterGodai (Rascals) at NekoCon in Hampton, Virginia!  It’s the largest single gathering of Katbox talent in over four years.  Look for all four of us in the Artist Alley, where we’ll have books, posters, prints, commissions sketches, and at my table, you can pre-order your copy of the 2014 Draconia Chronicles Calendar!  We’d love to see you there, even if it’s just to say hi!  For more information on NekoCon, check my convention calendar to the right of the comic.  Hope you can make it! Just a reminder that the comic is no longer on any fixed update schedule, so the best way to stay on top of updates is to subscribe via RSS, or to follow me on one of the social media services to the right of the comic.  Take your pick, though I recommend the Facebook and Twitter feeds, personally. And with that, it’s time to continue sketching on the calendar and working on a special Halloween treat for you all.  Keep an eye on my socials!  Take care, my fellow Draconiacs, and thanks for reading! =RazorFox.

    They’ve buggered off! They’ve scampered!!

    • WE know where they are. Will the Dragons be able to follow the trail? Stay tuned…

      • pride-and-parliament

        I sense impending calamity.

        • Gravedigger

          see the future doo you Hmm??

          • pride-and-parliament

            I just meant foreshadowing– I’m not a he-witch! No burning on the stake, please.

          • Gravedigger

            i was trying to sound like Yoda

    • pride-and-parliament

      They’ve scatted! They’ve vamoosed! They’ve gotten the hell out!

    • Jerohan

      They ran away, cleared out, absconded, retreated, made good their escape, f***ed off.

      Or, is layman’s terms…

      They ain’t here, yo.

  • Shade

    Hmm…….if they decide to follow them……..and Kilani remains adamant in her decision to return west………potential.

    • Ah, you’re starting to see it now! ^o^

      • Gravedigger

        I always saw it, its harder to explain than to see

    • pride-and-parliament

      O ye goddesses…

  • Brad Bates

    just a question, when dragon molt, their scale color becomes lighter and paler, will the skin color ever return back to the color it was?

    • Good question, and the answer is yes. The new scales start off a little lighter, but gradually get back to their original hue, if not darker. ^__^

  • Hawz

    Yet another thing to look forward to. ^_^ The fan girl really has to calm down, this is SERIOUS. Also, I would like to know more about the earth dragons. [/_/]=>[^_^]<=[_] I like how Meta became the center of attention by the end of this page.

    • Saph is proving to be a little excitable, but people are surprising me with how well they’re reacting to Meta. I might have to keep an eye on her… ~__^

  • MrAMP

    Meeting between Kilani and three of the best fire and best earth dragons imminent!!!

    But on a related note, I had no idea that earth dragons could sense their opponents. It will be very interesting to see how earth dragons fight since, from what I could recall, we’ve never had any intel on that.

    • Well, if they’re paths cross, we might find out… ~__^

      • “…if THEIR paths cross…” Autocorrect fail. v__v

    • Dis

      It makes since really. Anyone with earth abilities should be able to detect things on the ground currently or where something was before. Like Earthbenders from Avatar.

  • ThatOneComment

    Me likely how this is going so far. Also, it just came from the back of my mind, but I am sure Kilani may be able to speak dragon. Just throwing that out there.

    • Kilani could speak to *A* Dragon, though Chuki probably just learned how to speak Tiger, since it was what Kilani spoke. Good hypothesis, but doesn’t jibe with what’s happened thus far. ^__^;

      • ThatOneComment

        Very true, but I also have no idea how long Kilani was held prisoner by the dragons. It’s been a very long time since I read the beginning of this great comic.

  • Dis

    Tiger warriors…..Come out Come out to Plaaaaay! Can you dig it!

    • Yay, someone got the reference! ^o^

      • Dis

        I first heard of the warriors from the videogame advertisements back in 2007 and from there found the movie it was based on.

    • Gravedigger

      CAN YOU DIG IT, SUCKA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • CinnamonSalve

    These elemental puns get boulder every day.

    • I find that you need a real set of stones to make elemental puns like those.

      • Dis

        These puns deserve a YEEEEEAAAAAH!

      • CinnamonSalve

        Hopefully they aren’t Slated for a reunion with the Thunder Dragons, then. It would be a Shocking twist.

  • Puffball

    Haw, I see Red’s now shedding where she was hit with the Sun Gun XD Nice touch of details there, Razor! Man, with the dragons flying out, they’ll be on Kilani at the very least in no time flat.

    • Thanks for noticing Lady Red’s molting. At least she and the Earth Dragons will have something to talk about together. ^__^;

  • Khorn

    nice, been waiting for the earth dragons to get on the move and show what they can do, I do have hige belives they could be one of the strongest dragons if they would train them self in fighting with their earth magic (blokking fire and water with magic shields or stuff is one thing, trying to block a huge bolder with only muscles is totally another)
    and I have one quistion!! (uh uh pick me!!) there are these strange lines on the earthdragons necks, are these burning-marks after the volcano disaster?

    • Lady Red probably thought the same thing when she decided to enlist the aid of Earth Dragons for this mission. As for the Earth Dragons’ necks (and shoulders), the extreme heat from the volcano triggered early molting for them. Eone actually mentions this just a few pages ago on page 328. ^__^

      • Gravedigger

        aw man, I was gonna guess molting, CURSE YOU RAZORFOX!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Kobra

    Looks like Saph is really enjoying her time with her idol.

    Also looks like Meta is quite the tracker.

    • Saph’s totally cloud-nining here. And Meta sounds like she’s going to be a force to be reckoned with here…

      • Gravedigger

        says you

  • Paris

    Does…… Lady Red have claw marks on her ass?

    • LOL! No, they’re actually an “echo” tattoo of the same flames she has on her legs and arms. It’s always been there, and anytime Lady Red’s ass is in a shot, I try to show the left cheek to show off the extra tattoo. ^__^

      • Gravedigger

        artist promising to show hot ass, this is why I have you on the list man

  • Kobra

    Also Eone better drop the attitude or this is going to be a long trip.

    At worst one of them may use her a a living shield.

    • Well, we’ll see what happens, if and when a battle arises. Until then, it looks like she’s going to be a conscientious objector to this mission.

      • Kobra

        Don’t know why, she asked for it, and no amount of complaining otherwise will change that.

  • ElektraFan

    I think I’m beginning to understand why queen Oscura reduced the amount of earth dragons to a minimum. Because she knows that earth dragons can manipulate the physical world with their magick and as such, they could reduce the kingdom of Oscura to dust if they wished, especially to demand explanation about Gaia’s whereabouts. Well, at least this is what i think.

    And Saph is so cute, she is more sweet than that $#@!*& named Kess. And i love Meta’s atitude: “If you are questioning me, lady Red, then you are questioning the Goddess herself and this is something i wouldn’t dare”.

    • The delightful contrasts between Saph and Meta are making them a ton of fun to work with! Glad you’re digging them, because I am, too. If they find their targets, then we’ll probably get a glimpse at what they’re capable of in battle…

      • Gravedigger

        someone has to be cannon fodder

    • Tech

      Never hack off the cleric. They’ve got friends in high places…

      • Gravedigger

        and you never know when youll need a medpac

  • Tech

    Awright, times up. Let’s do this. LEEROOOOOYYYYY nnnJENKINS!!!

    • LOL! Good catch! I was soooo close to doing the full quote, or at least adapting it. Problem was that I actually couldn’t tell whether Leeroy was saying “time’s up” or “thumbs up.” So I played it safe and went a slightly different direction. ^__^

      • Gravedigger

        Gravedigger didn’t catch it, please oh wise RazorFox tell me more!!!!

  • Chromoid

    So I’m curious… we’ve seen Water Dragons, Fire Dragons, and Earth Dragons. Are there any Wind Dragons, or are those replaced by Lightning and Light Dragons? I ask because usually whenever there’s “elemental” groups, those four are the main ones and I haven’t even heard mention of Wind as a magical element yet.

    • There are no Wind Dragons in the story, though Fire Dragons do have a bit of control over air currents via convection. You’re correct, in that they were replaced, numerically, by the Light and Lightning Dragons. Five seemed like a more manageable number when I was first fleshing things out, so Wind got the ax. ^__^

      • Kobra

        Isn’t the fifth element suppose to be wood or metal? There have been plenty of metal dragons in fantasy.

        • Alas, no wood, but metals are just shiny rocks, and that’s the Earth Dragons’ dominion.

          • Kobra

            Are you saying there metal benders too?!

        • Tech

          some systems say it’s Void, others Quintessence.

        • Michael Halpern

          no the Fifth Element is a girl capable of taking out a bunch of thugs on a ship….

  • Tech

    What’s it say about me that I imagine The Meta from Red vs. Blue doing the Enemy Scan…?

    • It says that the creators of Red vs. Blue and I think alike. ^__^

      • Gravedigger

        red vs. blue the classic battle of colors

  • killatitan64

    What I think is that there should be a dark dragon breed elements flow in a circle where one element overcomes the next like fire beats earth, earth beats lightnin lightning beats water and water beats fire see a circle but then there’s light which exists outside the circle so it looks like nothing beats it but everything must have an opposite so darkness has to be lights in turn they beat each other as light cannot exist without darkness and even in the brightest light there is darkness

    • Nice! Yeah, that’d be pretty cool. One day, I hope to better illustrate any “checks and balances” there might be between the elements.

      • killatitan64

        Yes and how you said firedragons controlling air through heat currents many elementscan branch outto control lesserones likewater controlling ice or earth controling metals

  • Chocothunda

    Note to self:

    Earth Dragons make the best trackers :3

    • Gravedigger

      I second that notion, do we have a third

  • killatitan64

    Hey wait maybe lightning dragons can make sonic booms with thunder

    • I wouldn’t rule it out. ^__^

      • Gravedigger

        and ill take off my mask

  • MaveriKat

    It it just me or does Eone look quite sexy with her scales peeling at this degree?

    • She’s got plenty more scales to lose. ~__^

      • Gravedigger

        we can only hope

  • Michael Halpern

    One question did you just pull the “seismic sight” out of the Avatar the Last Airbender playbook?

    • Pure coincidence, I assure you. Besides, my Dragons were manipulating the elements years before “Avatar” premiered. ^__^

      • Gravedigger

        are you sure????

        • IAmHawz

          Imma answer your rhetorical question, and say: “YES, HE’S SURE”

          • Gravedigger

            it wasn’t a rhetorical question, I was being serious

          • CinnamonSalve

            *ahem*
            Srs Gravedigger is SRS.
            *badumpish*
            Thank you, have a great night.

          • Gravedigger

            I don’t even know what to say to that

        • My Dragons were bustin’ the elements since 2000, during which year the 2001 calendar was released which introduced this concept to the Draconia mythos. “Avatar: The Last Airbender” didn’t debut until 2004. Any similarity is therefore coincidental and grandfathered in.

          TL;DR: Yes, I’m sure, and I’m not changing a thing. ^__^

          • Gravedigger

            okay, just checking

            you really make it sound like yyour old

  • Sleel

    In my head, instead of conciliatory gesture, I hear the Klingon Judge in Undiscovered Country rendering judgment on Kirk…. “In the interest of fostering amityyyyy…”
