Holy Chinese dragons clutching orbs representing the gift of enlightenment given to a random peasant who stumbled upon aforementioned dragon while carrying his grandfather up the mountain to die! An update!

Ozy's face looks weird in the third and fourth panels...

I like Ozy's dragon-speak font.

I spot several emoticons in those runes.

(also why is it that in the thread title, recently everyone only includes the day, or the date, or the title, but never all three?)

In this specific case and instance: laziness and general lack of focus resulting from an all-nighter.

1. Did DCS devise that writing system herself, or did she borrow it from somewhere?

2. I almost overlooked Ozy's use of "runes," indicating that he was reading the word balloon rather than hearing.

3. With that in mind, it's hard to tell whether his large-fonted roar was really disruptive. Of course, it's quite possible that the many dragon guests didn't mind, and the other vulpine guests couldn't understand the runes anyway.

4. Too bad the comic is ending, because panel 4 would have some real lasting power as a forum icon.

The writing looks like ancient caveman writing mixed with randomness.

The End of O&M is near D:

More like, the end of the beginning. The strip will continue, if only once in a blue moon, according to DCS.

Well, I doubt the forum will end with the comic anyway. (a lot of people on here don't read the comic too much anyway :P) So don't worry, we'll still be here after the comic ends. I think. :)
gforce422 is awesome because:
-He made the absolute nicest comments about me in the other topic. I didn't respond to them yet, because I suck, but they are greatly appreciated! =D
-I would say he would also be a good runner up as one of the nicest people alive.
-He joined the IRC sometimes. But not enough, I say! Chat moar =D
-He is evidently only 18 year old but he could easily pass for 25. =D
-He is a drummer like *I* am and this in itself is cool.

Ozy knew he wouldn't rune the day he decided to learn another language.
