This is called a “flight”, so why are crows called a “murder”?
Most of you guessed it, dragons are flying from Karazi to the dragon palace. It was mostly red dragons stationed in Karazi (over the Elwind mountains for the most part) hence its mostly red dragons returning, though these aren’t palace dragons.

Its certainly been a while since I’ve done a full-page frame, perhaps a bit too long but I definitely enjoyed doing this one.

There’ll be a blog post tomorrow talking in detail about the dragon redesign you can see here, including for those Forgetfuls who haven’t followed most of its development on Twitter, stay tuned for it!

  1. Because quite frankly, crows are murderously intelligent.
    Murderously, geddit.

    Well, stupid comedy aside, it’s probably due to the corvids general association with sites of death like battlefields and executions in a similar manner as vultures.
    Carrion and stuff.

  2. Edit because I made a stupid: Not Corvids are the family, the genus in question is Corvus (ravens and crows).

  3. Corvidae is basically the best family.

  4. Why are they called a murder? Because corvidae are badass, that’s why.

  5. I would still argue a flight of dragons is more murder than a murder of crows, however.

  6. because anyone who called a flight of dragons a murder is dead

  7. I think “murder” is not used because dragons, when in groups, don’t do so much plotting and sneaking around (okay a few exceptions, but on the whole). Perhaps “manslaughter of dragons?” “Destruction of dragons?” Wait no, too cheezy.
