We put out a vote as to what content to show for the month of November. The race was close. So close, in fact, that we’ve drawn up a compromise: It’s apparently NaCoMaMo (National Comic Making month? We feel someone must have made that one up!) so we will be pulling another story out of the archives to be presented page by page.

After that, however, there will be 10 days before the December special begins, so that will be filled with random selections from the archives.

Without further adieu, please enjoy these pages, collected under the title plate Bellmage.

The Crystal Bell Forest is an interesting between land. Like the trading post that is also set along the border between Rialan and the mountains of Atur. The people residing there however… well they’re oft forgotten. Most Rialanites are surprised to find that there are communities set among the mountain forests. What is not forgotten, however are the craftsmen of bells. It is not only a long-standing legend, but the people of Atur revere their bellmaking. Their bells are of the highest quality.
