Re: Comic for February 15, 2018: Dragon Genealogy

I'd like to point out that this might be the only way dragons reproduce (as Tony has suggested previously as well). That's even more plausible if Xale is right and dragons "breed true" -- their offspring are always dragons. Yes, yes, I know, Reni says "it's definitely not common," but Reni very well...

Re: Any Power Metal fans?

Only powermetal band i know at hand that i listen to is Sabaton, glorius native band. So i guess you can count me in! I just spun up a Pandora station based on Masterplan and Blind Guardian, and it introduced me to Sabaton. I will +1 to the "Glorious" declaration, I really enjoy their work. Wish I ...

Re: Comic for February 8, 2018: The Pecking Order

It is reasonable to assume that Nora is not the first dragon, though she may well be among the first generation -- or a relatively early generation anyway. She refers here to "brothers and sisters," and Nora has not thus far appeared to use those terms in a non-familial way (as, for instance, the Ba...

Re: Keidran lifespan and the Masks.

We can also safely assume that there are methods to extending life -- or something approximating life -- outside of the Masks' intervention. Euchre (presuming he is not in league with the Masks) and Rose pretty well require it. They're both far too old for Keidran. This is no longer necessarily the...

Re: Keidran lifespan and the Masks.

I can't remember Nora convincing him not to. I personally think that only the Masks can extend life. This is the moment when Nora convinced Trace to spend the time he had with Flora wisely instead of pursuing extending her life (presumably "indefinitely.") We can also safely assume that there are m...

Re: Orchard Valley

However as far as i remember the Towers sinking black mana was a one time thing. Only possible since Trace was plugged into the Tower and went haywire when Flora was attacked. Since he probably designed the things himseld I simply assumed her reversed the Tower to get the power he neede at the mome...

Re: Orchard Valley

I guess there's still no reasonable explanation for why the Basitins would want the Grand Templar, unless the goal was just to make the conditions of Keith's exile impossible to complete. And it's borderline inexplicable that Albion didn't try any rules-lawyering, since not only was Trace not the G...

Re: Orchard Valley

Albion Alabaster being Trace's "inside man" would resolve one of the comic's strange curiosities. So Keith was exiled -- something Alabaster was very much involved in -- and the condition of his return was to bring back the Grand Templar. This would have been pretty concurrent with Trace's actual c...

Re: What are Basitins are based off?

And an aside to avwolf re: his source; what do you have against cabbits, and do I need to stage an intervention? :P Eight years is a mighty long time to wait for someone to stage an intervention. :P Of course, it's probably closer to nine or ten since I watched any Tenchi Muyo... I don't recall all...

Re: Orchard Valley

Also on tha note? did we ever meet Trace "inside man" on the island. Was it the guy building the towers? Generally agree with avwolf above, but I always tended to figure that it was Randall, simply because Randall doesn't seem to be present at that meeting, and it would amuse me for his 'man on the...

, but in the perceptions of literally everyone in the comic, the Humans didn't start anything. With the notable exception of the Templar leadership .

Re: Some Questions

Granted it was because of the alcohol (Why they gave Keith a few crates of Rum so concentrated that it is explosive is beyond me) but if that kind of chemistry exist i think they are not too far away from muskets and hand-canons. Ehh, I don't know. You can get a pretty darn good explosion out of gr...

Re: What are Basitins are based off?

Basitins aren't really based on anything. They're just a made up species. Cats and rabbits were used to inspire certain elements, but that was way back in the very beginning, before really anything about the Basitins other than "Keith is one" was set in stone. Here's Tom's comment from when it came ...

Re: Orchard Valley

Actually I think that the war was beginning before Trace became grand Templar. If i am not mistaken. "A" was already happened. and since then realations between humans and non-humans were strained. But the whole rotuing Keidran from the planet. That was Trace´s idea. And the war a means to that end...

Re: Some Questions

Before this topic ages out, I should probably make some notes here, since we don't have a lot of sourcing for the comments thus far. First, we know that there are fireworks , so it is not unreasonable to assume gun powder exists, at least in some fashion. Could that be a magical effect and Tom used ...
