Drift of Dreams | A Swordsfall Graphic Novel Announced

Enter the Tapestry

“Wake up Dreamer, or let your Nightmares become your Fate”

The Withering King Xavian has somehow spread his corruption The Tapestry, the connected network of slumbering humans. His corruption causes dreams to turn and twist where they normally would not. Turning a normal dream into a sinister nightmare capable of twisting the mortal soul into something else.

Dreamweavers from around the world have banded together in an effort to stem the tide. The only way to push Xavian away and out of The Tapestry is through the combined might of human consciousness. This means that the Dreamweavers must enter the dreams of slumbering humans and wake them within their dreams.

Only once people are awake can they affect their dreams and push back against the corrupting forces of Xavian.

Or do they? For some, the darkness is inviting and the corruption is wanted. Some who awake from their dream slumber decide to slide into the darkness with Xavian as their master.

Who will rule The Tapestry?

Drift of Dreams is a 100+ page full-color graphic novel set within the Swordsfall universe. Within these pages, you will find stories from people across Tikor, caught between the struggle between ancient beings of power. Some humans revel in the chance to fight against the corruption that threatens to break the dream world. When the Dreamweavers awaken them, they grab their dreams and push back against Xavian. Others, on the other hand, find themselves pulled to the dark seduction of The Withering King. Which one of their darkest nightmares is actually there greatest wish? Xavian knows, and he shows them visions of thinks yet taken.

Will they Help or Hinder?
