ASTRAL AVES

Hey... 'Sup. I make Astral Aves. It's a fantasy comic about ghosts and politics and spooky witches. Check it out.
The Epic Of The Whitemarche, Cycle I, Rune IV.
I hope you are a giant nerd, because before Chapter 8 begins, we’ll be peeping into the book Lorn was peeping into, The Epic of The Whitemarche!  Looks like the Whitemarche seems to have very different ideas on whats-what.  The good news is this will update daily until Chapter 8 starts!

Anonymous asked: How does magic work in Astral Aves? And whats the big difference between dawn magic from the whitemarche and magic from the black horn? Please tell me as much as you can that isn't important to the story!! I love it so much! Thanks, a fan :)

Oh wow! Great question! I think I can explain a bit without spoiling much, so here we go!  ’Magic’ in Astral Aves works under the principle that there are two worlds existing on top of each other. Humans are able to use their shadow to interact with The Nocturne (Ghost World), and ‘Ghosts’ are able to use Light to interact with a The Diurne (The Human World).

Dawn and Dusk are both times when shadows cast long, and they’re basically different perspectives on the exact same principle. The ‘Day Star’ (Sun) wants a world of True Noon (there are no shadows when it’s noon…), but was tricked by the Witch Algol to go wandering across the sky (according to the mythology)

Culturally, the Whitemarche eventually decided to align themselves with ‘Light’ and ran out most of the dawn witches long ago (hence Israfel Bronte’s title ‘Bringer of Light’)…so Gretag (That old granny who helped Lorn), is one of the few remnants of an older culture of witches that has a different perspective on the ‘Shadow Magic’ humans use to interact with the other world.

The technical details of that are going to be fun plot points in the future!  Thanks for asking!

Astral Aves, Chapter 07, Page 56.
Chapter 7 is complete! You can read the whole thing HERE. It was a big learning curve for me, and I’m really excited to start chapter 8, it will begin next week, so this Friday will be a break!  Chapter 7 ended up being 56 pages, and it felt like it was a good point to break things up! As always, thanks a ton for reading, and tell your friends to read too! It’s a tiny comic, so any help goes a long long long way! Thanks again!
