        Click on the picture with the right mouse button (or appropriate to get into the context menu) and select “Save link as…” (or something like that) in the context menu. “Save graphic as…” (or something in this way) will download the picture. Since I use Firefox with German language settings I don’t know exactly what the menu item is called in English, French etc. or in Chrome, IE, etc.

    Excellent work. Three cheers for Priscilla Chee! Three cheers for Peter Gresser! And three cheers for the regular staff, for once again going far above and beyond the call of duty!

      Hurray, Hurray, Hurray!
      Since I’ve never been around for something like this. I am really amazed and so happy about this awesome surprise. You all go above and beyond in not just art, but just your dedication. Turning merely reading your webcomic into an amazing and delightful experience. Thank you for all your hard work and for raising the bar on my expectations.
      Also there were videos when the characters spoke?

    But if Kyo’nne sings good now, then Tu won’t be holding her ears!

    Fitting for Drowtales… and a concert in the setting! ;p Now who wants to do a Metal remix? (dodges rotten vegetables)

    I’ll be listening hard to that string bit that flows in, might be fun to try and replicate it on the violin. :9

  7. Tranx says:

    This is awesome!! :) :)

  8. Retaya says:

    Quickly! Someone go make a rock-remix of this! >83

      The cover-version of »Ein bisschen Frieden« (A little peace) was the song I intended for Kyone knowing her from before the time-jump.

      Honestly, the song fits very good for the actual setting after 15 years of war. As Kiel said lately: For us it’s one year, but it’s 15 years of war for them.

    This. Is. Awesome. 8D
    Although, I can’t take the idea of Khal playing flute very seriously xD
    Any written lyrics to go with this?

  10. NeoDarklight says:

    …I probably shouldn’t have been listening to Temporal Shenanigans prior to listening to this. Either way, it’s a pretty darn good song.

  11. Ali says:

    Y’know, after a few listens, this song really reminds me of the Celtic folk music my dad plays in the car when we go to Scotland – great memories. No wonder I’m enjoying this so much =]

  12. anonymous says:

    How would you download this for any media players? A link or a way to download it directly on your computer would be helpful.

  13. Greenwood Goat says:

    Nice song. I did, however, think of Kyo’nne as more of a rocking sort of performer, for some reason.

    When I saw the mp3 filename, I immediately thought of the finale to Gates of Delirium by Yes, which was actually released as a single under the title “Soon”. (YouTube link) Different style, same sentiment. Yes, Gates of Delirium was one of those whole-side-of-vinyl tracks, and so it can have a five-minute finale.

  14. BlackFulcrum says:

    Awesome song, I really like it.

    Also, Achievement get!

  15. Tiam says:

    My Morrowind explore music list just became even more epic! Thank you!

  16. Songtress says:

    Drowtakes CD, music inspired by? Can Fanz haz?

  17. Asdfzfgdgfadasaf! <3

    This song is amazing. It reminds me a little bit of Aoi Hitomi from Escaflowne ( in the beginning.

  18. Madalynn says:

    YAYY!!! I’m so excited her character has blossomed beyond a boy crazy adolescent!! I might have a new favorite character if you keep this up!!! Can we have more music too???? o.O XD

    • Greenwood Goat says:

      Is it certain that she isn’t still boy-crazy? >:=)> That she isn’t exploiting her fame to that end, like so many performers do? Perhaps she’ll end this performance with: “You’ve been a great audience! I love you all! Especially you, you, you, you, you, you, that one, that one, no, the one with the blue spiked hair, and girly-boy there with the big glasses – ooh, catch him before he gets away!”

  19. DPG says:

    Was expecting something “rockier”, but that was quite good.

  20. Justin Allen says:

    The download link isn’t working for me.. :(
