A lindworm is a type of dragon.


BTW, I just recently cracked the "50 subscribers" threshold!
Many thanks to everyone of you!

Also, it occurred to me that right now (as of writing this), there are (including my own comic here) four currently ongoing stories with my characters!!*
I have no idea how that happened!
So many special thanks to lirvilas, Jay042 and Stilldown!

* Edit: Stilldown's story has come to a conclusion by now, between the time of me excitedly writing down this observation and this page going online.

Congratulation on half-century!

I'm also intrigued to see that dragon's rampage :D

Thank you! ^^

Also, from here on it's my normal bi-weekly update schedule again, so you'll see the rampage very soon!

somehow a "lindwurm" sounds a lot more dangerous than a "dragon"

also, I must again wonder what profit motive could possibly drive anyone's urge to summon such a creature

I found it would be a smart idea to establish that there is are different types of dragons.
This one is meant to be just a beast, but maybe one day I want to write a Cryptida story with a full on Smaug-esque dragon that has human-level intellect and everything...

Regarding what Lena could possibly gain from this...
I didn't reference The Nibelungenlied "just because", there is a specific plot point regarding the dragon in that story which might give a clue...
(I realize there may be some cultural divide at play, since I suspect that more people tend to be already familiar with said story around my neck of the woods. I wouldn't be surprised if e.g. Stilldown would easily able to guess by now what Lena is actually after...)

I have a kind of suspicion yet... and it is not the dragon 64.

The... what now? This?? Well, that would be a rather weird (though nevertheless interesting) turn! :-D
