Ref: One, two, three.
There's a lot of names mentioned in this strip. Instead of linking to them all, or asking you to go back and study Chapter 65: Mohkadun (there won't be a quiz!) I'll say this.You DO NOT need to know all the characters and events referenced to follow the story and I'll try to provide more pertinent links on a case-by-case basis as the story unfolds. But Chapter 65 is at your fingertips should you like!

I double checked the archive just to be sure, and despite every time their paths might have crossed, Bun-bun and Frog have never met. Please let me know in the Reactions Forums if I messed that up because I’d RetCon that.

Ref: The Original Tale of Mr. Stiks (which is reprinted in today's strip). This is also one of the links from two comics ago. Reprinting the tale was the easiest way for me to remind or inform you all of who/what Mr. Stiks is.

Whelp, this wraps 'Lost and Found' and we found a LOT. So many odd characters from storties from years ago. This is a big story that ties much together. I will do my best to include all information needed for this story in the story, but will keep putting ref-links in case you all want a trip down memory lane. Onward and sideways!

Does it make sense for people to be celebrating the Lemuralia Festival in a town just north-west-ish of Mt Vesuvius in 455-ish BC? I say so, but I'm not actually a historian. ;)

Hey all! I wanted you guys to know Ozzid has shown up in previous comics from many years back. In the panels I drew him, he looked different in every single panel and I missed that he had a tail until recently. Some of you have figured out where Ozzid shows up, others perhaps have not but it will be explained. So Ozzid needed a tail, and now Ozzid has one.

OK, so Maloufo's nipples are weird, his specific story is not needed for Immortal King, and the fourth panel 'break of the fourth wall' is my attempt of self deprecating humor over my inability to NOT make you guys feel like you have to read a decade of comics to understand what's going on! ;)  Speaking of things you don't need to know:
Ref: The Summoner and Maloufo.
Another neat thing you don't need to know for this story is that summoner is Riff's great-great-great-thousands-of-years-over grandma. It's TRUE!

NOTE: "parapox" is a genus of viruses, in the family Poxviridae, in the subfamily Chordopoxvirinae. However "para-pox" is a virus from prolonged exposure to a space-time contradiction. It's important to understand that para-pox always means a paradox, but a paradox can occur without any cases of para-pox. The more you know...
