PRE-ORDER NOW | RELEASE APRIL 2020
“So, wake up Dreamer. Wake up and seize your fate.”
The Withering King Xavian has somehow spread his corruption to The Tapestry, the connected network of slumbering humans. His corruption is causing dreams to turn and become twisted in strange and unnatural ways. Your once innocent dreams become sinister nightmares capable of corrupting your mortal soul into something else…
“But fear not, Dreamer…”
Dreamweavers from around the world, like myself, have banded together to stem the tide of corruption. But we need your help, Dreamer. The only way to push Xavian away and out of The Tapestry is through the combined might of human dreams. This means that we must enter the dreams of slumbering humans around Tikor and wake them to the dangers we face.
Only once you Dreamers are awake can you affect your dreams and push back against the corrupting forces of Xavian.
“So, wake up Dreamer. Wake up and seize your fate.”
Drift of Dreams will be a 100+ page full-color graphic novel set within the Swordsfall universe. Within these pages, you will find stories from people across Tikor, caught in the struggle for power between ancient beings. It’s a struggle that humans never asked for, yet are nevertheless entangled in. Where once Tikor the battlefield, it’s now in the theater of the mind. A dreamworld where humans have all the power, and yet none.
Some humans revel in the chance to fight against the corruption that threatens to break the dreamworld. When the Dreamweavers awaken them, they use their dreams and push back against Xavian.
On the other hand, some find themselves pulled to the dark seduction of The Withering King. Which one of their darkest nightmares are actually their greatest wish? Xavian knows, and he shows them visions of things yet to come.
The central group of Dreamweavers known as The Kelm, have dispatched their most talented ‘Weaver, a private figure known as The Seeker, to deal with the rising threat. They say that when it comes to diving through the connected dreamscape, no one is better.
However, The Seeker isn’t the only one in The Tapestry with a mission. Deep amidst the dreams, a corrupted Dreamweaver lurks. Having succumbed to the vile curse of Xavian’s Touch, they are now the conduit allowing the god of corruption to invade The Tapestry.
Drift of Dreams will have TWO covers to pick from. The Goddess of Creation, Ishvana or The Withering King, Xavian.
The Ishvana cover will be drawn by Swordsfall Lead Artist, T’umo Mere. If you’ve been following Swordsfall at all, then his art should be no surprise to you! His art leads the style and design of Swordsfall, bringing a real taste of Africa to the world.
The Xavian cover will be drawn by legendary Artist, Chris Cold. Cold is a bit of a hidden name in the art world. You may not know his name off the top of your head, but his work is in dozens of books, games and even movies. The way he draws terrifying and creepy figures is among some of the best. His name was the first in mind when it came to bringing the foreboding corruption of Xavian to life
Will you patron Ishvana or Xavian?
For this Graphic Novel, we’ve brought together an amazing crew of artists from around the world. All of them are excited to bring the unique flavor of diversity that is Swordsfall to ink. Be sure to visit their sites and add them on social media!
Even if it’s not on this project, we all always believe in SUPPORTING THE ARTIST.

“The idea behind my sample is rooted in my struggles with dreams. Anxiety dreams and nightmares that leave the body in pain from it reacting to the stress. So I found the idea of the poisoning of the Tapestry extremely cool. That character is as close what I envision to messing up everyone’s dreams. Like The tapestry is bleeding thick, dark slime that swallows light.
And victims of their blight have a mark that they only they can see, that gets bigger over time.”
