The guards will be speechless, prisoners laughing! This said we're seeing a great friendship being born here.

How did you come up with this storyline, and it's language? I find myself curious, as the characters have grown on me.

@Onasaki: The initial idea was born as a real time strategy game where I wanted to have three races with very different abilities. But I wanted to avoid the typical fantasy races and invented my own. Sogre was the first character ever created. The Katraner/Katranian looked much more like Cats and the Takalier where Lizards in clothes riding Warks.
Much later I used this setting for a comic staring a proto-Nirrod for a customer (I secured my rights for the names and the Designes). After this project flopped, I did use this whole world for a full fledged fantasy story. Which was published 2004. 2 Books where finished... but the sales where not that great because it was the time of Manga copycats ;) and my style was too different.
2010 I decided to revamp Katran and bring it online ...The story is a typical adventure plot with some different approaches.

The Katran language is a mixture of European altered and contrived words. I decided to use a very simple syntax which maybe can be understood by many people.
The language is not finished. I write on it all the time.

The beginning of a mighty bromance.

@JoKeR: You made me curious about your previous works, would have loved to see them.

Well a quick search brought this https://www.amazon.de/Katran-Joker/dp/3936686874

@Maeke: Yes that's the old printed version of Katran. It's in German and has a few flaws in the story. And I must say the drawings are bad compared to today. Hahaha.

In fact chapter 1-3 (except for the pages numbered additional with letters) consists of those nearly unedited old print version. I edited here and there some marginal errors and added digital shades instead of the former grey marker.
