Attention new viewers:
THE CHAINS THAT BIND takes place a couple of years after A CAGE CALLED HOME and although it is not a direct continuation of A CAGE CALLED HOME’s story characters do reappear. Reading the previous comic is not required to enjoy this one but it can help as long as you can put up with it.

An excerpt from Ritual Observance “When the moons grow dark and howls cut ragged through the dry air we know the season is ending, and the Day of Rags is upon us. It is on this day where reflections merge and beings from beyond the mirrors edge come closest to ours, only beat back by the light of the living soul. It is to this end that we dress those whose souls shine the brightest, children and people of faith in primitive rags and give out of kindness to display the flaws in the reflection and prevent the merge.”

This is supposedly how the Day of Rags began; at least it is often cited as the first mention of the holiday, although recent findings seem to prove it to be apocryphal. It really is a strange idea, that villages would dress their children like scarecrows as if they could spook these unknowable horrors like swarming vermin. Even at the time of Ritual Observance’s writing, the “reflected map” which depicted the lands past the penumbra where our university sits as a mirror reflection was being phased out in favor of maps built on exploration rather than guesswork.

Regardless of its origin the Day of Rags is still a spectacular sight, from the systematic rows of Arcadia to the dirty sprawl of The Cage people join in with the festivities giving treats to strangers they’ll meet only on this day. Even here in the university with nary a child in sight the spirit is strong; from poetry readings to parties we observe the holiday, but without the tired ritual. In the end it really doesn’t matter what the Day of Rags origin is, or even what is was when we were younger, what matters is how we choose to celebrate and the fact that every celebration is it’s own.

Have a happy holidays from the Eckoro University Press to you

I’d like to thank everyone who’s made it this far, I had no delusions about how niche the thing I was making was, I can’t tell how happy I am for each person who read it all the way through. Also a special thanks to Eldra who helped me proofread the comic and provided support along the way.

As teased in this final page there will be a sequel to this which will close the book on The Cage, I hope to be able to get it out in a few months and I’ve already made great progress on it. It follows the hunt for the most dangerous breed of afflicted through the cramped shadowed corners of The Cage, and I am seriously super excited and hyped up for it.

This is seriously one of the most strange and exciting things I’ve done in my life, and I’m glad to have all of you along for the ride.

It took me a long time to create this comic, so forgive the uhh, varying artistic quality.

A note on the dead kindling comic:
I was mostly writing kindling as I went along making it up as I go, it was all for fun and I did have at least a little fun with it. However I found I had a hard time writing it at all, which is strange since it was a passion project. Kindling was supposed to be a light hearted escape, something I wanted, but it just wasn't my voice and became impossible to write so I gave up on it.

I never stopped thinking about Nocturnal though, and eventually I decided to make this darker more hard reboot. I hope you enjoy thank you.
