  1. The last victim of dragonfire on page 1307 was instantly reduced to bones. Keltan looks like he may come out with a mild sunburn.

  2. He was hit by dragon fire before, all he said was a small ow. and then spoke to the dragon and the rider whacked his dragon. In response Keltan used his club to make a red mist! Giants are very flame resistant, they are the answer to dragon attacks. Seems plug-ugly doesn’t know that, or thinks it’s magic that can be worn off him.

    1. Well, if one dragon hurt him on page 1182 then I can imagine that 7 would sting pretty bad.

  3. I hope he remembered to put on sunscreen that morning 🙁

  4. Magik armor ain’t gonna melt and I hope Keltan will use YOYODYNE on the riders, not the dragons. Great page.
    How’s life JED, Are you doing okay? Been following you since day one of Zona and even have your comics. Your pace seems to be slowing down and I’m really kind of worried about you. Hope all is well, take care.

  5. Well, Smasher/Crusher is about to get some more action, I think. And Gorshash is about to find out that giants don’t burn.

  6. Keltan took the full breath attack of a Dragon wearing nothing but a loincloth. With that armor I doubt he’s going to be inconvenienced at all.

  7. This might leave a mark? I am thinking This is going to turn out badly for someone….

  8. It hurt him like us feeling the hot water from a faucet, he shook it off just like a wet hand. They might have to cut him out of that armor after this, I’m sure the fasteners will be melted a bit. But, at the same time, was was written in those books they found that it was magical armor, so it might have felt like a hot summer breeze to him.

    1. do you know the hot summer breezes here in Arizona? they like a blast furnace. or dragonfire.

  9. I don’t know if there is a name yet, but here’s another entry (perhaps entry idea) 🙂
    Go a little ancient giant, and get a worthy of Mentl and Erogenia pun in.

  10. you should feel the hot summer breezes here in Phoenix, AZ. More like a blast furnace or a dragon blast. LoL

  11. Sheesh. Please be safe there. Drink lots of water and stay out of the sun 🙁

  12. @Kiddeagle
    Yes, seven bigger dragons spitting fire in unison would hurt more than just one “teenage” dragon.
    I surmise it will still not be enough to take him out of action at once.

Rich Morris – YAFGC Patreon

One of my favorite webcomics is “Yet Another Fantasy Gamer Comic” (https://www.yafgc.net/). Its creator, Rich Morris is a telented professional who has been creating these delightful fun, engaging and funny long form fantasy comics for years. At long last he’s got himself a Patreon site so that we can give back a little for all the free stuff he’s put out there.
My Zonaphiles will recall when he did the portrait of Zona and Mentl, and now as part of my Patreon-age, he’s doing a finished portrait of my choice. And I chose Ipola. The prelim sketches see below.

I cannot urge you strongly enough to support art, and support artists, and support this artist and his art.

At Last! “Challenges Of Zona – Confessions” Visual Novel

Frigging finally, after hours and hours of solitary toil to make a visual novel/game of Zona (including an abortive attempt to export it which meant I had to practically recreate it from scratch) I have a 0.01 beta version as a demo. It is short and a bit rough around the edges, but I hope you all have fun with it.

Set in the master bedroom of the Hollywood mansion right after their engagement party, it’s where Zona confesses to her new silver-bonded Mentl the one thing that she has been keeping to herself forever.

In a way, this returns Zona to her origins in the adult find-your-path books she was created for, as the visual novel medium is just a higher tech version of that. Also, it’s very dirty. Definitely NOT safe for work.

I think of this as a “proof of concept” for one more product and direction we can take the characters and reward my wonderful Zonaphiles. Frankly, I think she lends herself to this medium pretty handily.

A one dollar patronage at patreon.com/JEDraft gets you access to this and much more!

Warm regards,

JED

HELP AUSTRALIA NOW

My people, this is a global ecological emergency.  *All* of us need to pitch in as best we can.

So if it helps you get motivated,  then Zona, Mentl and all their friends are willing to bare it all for you to get the resources where they’re needed.  Send me an email with a forwarded receipt or screen grab of an Australian 10 dollar (or above) donation and we’ll send you a nice sexy pic of the “Challenges of Zona” character of your choice.

I chose these two organizations as being the ones that will help the wildlife and the people, but I am willing to accept any proof of (recent) donation to any accredited relief organization dedicated to assisting with the fight against these horrific bush fires Down Under.  


I’m a Californian, and I have seen my share of nasty wildfires, even more and worse in recent years. The Australian fires make anything I had to be evacuated from seem like a grease fire in my kitchen.  If you think you are safe from the effects of this disaster because you live on the other side of the world, think again.  This is worse than any fantasy world-beater my imagination could come up with.  I have given and will give again.  

For those of you who just like to click: 

WWF:

Red Cross:

I’ve given and will give again next paycheck.  How about you?

Zona G8 Mk2

Just at the moment, we’re temporarily stalled on the animation project. So we’ve taken advantage of the lull to revisit the Gen 8 model of Zona, and I think this time, even more than last, we’ve hit it on the head. So Brian came up with a couple of pinups of her of which this is a closeup. If you want to see more (much more) become a Patreon patron at https://www.patreon.com/JEDraft

Warm regards, all!

R.I.P – P-Chan

My heart is heavy tonight. We had to say goodbye to my dear constant companion and the inspiration for all the black cats in “Challenges Of Zona”, my beloved friend, P-Chan.
He was very old and finally was very confused and in great pain. So we eased him into Summerland Thursday evening.
Nonetheless, he’s still there in the past and in my memories, and in Inky and in Incus and in the one-eyed winged cat from the Otherwhen. (Yes, long-time readers will remember when he lost his eye to an abcess, years ago.)

He was a very very very good boy.

Warm regards,
JED

RIP, Peter Tork.

When the world and I were young, just yesterday
Life was such a simple game a child could play

It was easy then to tell right from wrong
Easy then to tell weak from strong
When a man should stand and fight
Or just go along

But today, there is no day or night
Today, there is no dark or light
Today, there is no black or white
Only shades of gray

I remember when the answer seemed so clear
We had never lived with doubt, or tasted fear

It was easy then to tell truth from lies
Selling out from compromise
Who to love and who to hate
The foolish from the wise

But today, there is no day or night
Today, there is no dark or light
Today, there is no black or white
Only shades of gray

It was easy then to know what was fair
When to keep and when to share
How much to protect your heart
And how much to care

But today, there is no day or night
Today, there is no dark or light
Today, there is no black or white
Only shades of gray
Only shades of gray…
