• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

How to get a dragon across a stream in six easy steps.

Step 1. Secure a rope around a branch. Use this to make a winch system to put the dragon in the air.

Step 2. Tie the rope to the dragon.

Step 3. Lift the dragon. Dragons are light to help them fly, so this step is actually quite easy (if the dragon cooperates)

Step 4. Tie the other end of the rope to a tree on the other side of the stream. Using two ropes and a person on each side, pull the dragon across.

Step 5. Realize that your first step should have been to tie up the pixie.

Step 6. Panic.

Step 7. Take a bath.


Chasing the Sunset is a fantasy webcomic by artists Mithandir and Alien, set in a universe called The World That Is. Here there be dragons.. and pixies.. and unicorns, fae, elves, and a human or two.

The comic follows the story of a young elf boy, Fallen Leaf ("Leaf" for short), and his friend Ayne as they travel west across the land in search of Leaf's father, who was swept away in a flood many years before. Leaf believes his father may still be alive because a traveling Bard has brought a rumor of an elf man living across the ocean. Joining Leaf and Ayne is Myhrad, a vegetarian drageling (baby dragon with the personality of a lazy housecat) whom Leaf befriended not long after his father disappeared. Another companion, far less welcome, is Feiht, a pixie who joins their quest and 'volunteers' to carry any 'shinies' they might encounter along the way.

As they travel, Leaf and Ayne both acquire strange identities and allegiances. Ayne joins the mysterious blue Amazon tribe occupying No Man's Land. And Leaf, after spending the night in a bewitched tower, is possessed by three Furies — magical spirits of uncontrollable wrath. They must also deal with tedious matters like old prophecies, monstrous trolls, dragons, bards, sorcerers, escaping the pursuit of family members, and placating the various persons Feiht has 'borrowed' from along the way.

The comic can be found at this address.
