Storm Weavers: Story Driven Solo Tabletop Game

Created by Storm Weavers

Storm Weavers is a unique combination of a classic gamebook with an element of tactical combat taking place on the board. As a dwarven warrior, you undertake a journey across the vast land of Midgard to find and rescue your friend. To achieve your goal you must overcome a sinister adversity. As you travel from location to location, you have to face strong orcs, clever goblins, bloodthirsty wolves, ice giants, all migthy gods, cowardly wizards, greedy merchants, bad people, good people ... can they stop you from reaching your goal?

French and English editors note

Greetings, Adventurers! 


You're probably wondering what's going on in our dwarven workshop. 86% of you have already completed Backerkit surveys, for which we thank you! We hope that the remaining 14% of our community will be able to do so in a short time.

In the meantime, we have already completed the translations of all the content of both the English and French versions. Both versions are currently being edited. The edition of English version is already 75% completed, while the work on the French edition has just begun, as we needed more time to find a daredevil who would take on this task.

As the translation of the game and the editing has been of special concern to many of you, we would like to assure you once again that the game that will come into your hands will be linguistically at a high level, thanks to: 


John Marc Green, English version editor

John Marc Green is a gamebook enthusiast who was first introduced to branching fiction with the "Choose Your Own Adventure" books he enjoyed as a child in the 1980s. He is currently teaching writing, media and film production at the university level in the US. A lifelong book lover, he is a writer and is planning future gamebook projects. He recently published an article on branching story design patterns in the Gamebook Zine, available in print and digital formats on Amazon. He loves Celtic and Nordic legends, as well as the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Neil Gaiman.


Antoine Prono, French version editor

My name is Antoine Prono and I am a freelance translator specialized in the gaming industry. Over the past years I translated, edited or proofread more than 200 KS and non-KS games set in various universes: Science-Fiction (Nemesis, Dune), History (Monumental, Glory: A Game of Knights), Fantasy (Northgard: Uncharted Lands, Paper Dungeons...), working with many French game publishers. I also translated role-playing games (Mage 20th, Conan), videogames, and W40K novels (Black Library). As a gamer myself, I know that a proper translation is critical for a good gaming experience. Storm Weavers reminds me of the books of Ian Livingstone that I read when I was younger, but with a new twist and a modern gameplay, and I'm really excited to work on such a project. I will make sure that French-speaking players get the best gaming experience that Anna and I can offer!


Je m'appelle Antoine Prono et je suis traducteur freelance spécialisé dans le jeu de société. Ces dernières années, j'ai traduit, repris ou relu plus de 200 jeux KS et non-KS, dans des univers différents : la science-fiction (Nemesis, Dune), l'histoire (Monumental, Glory : A Game of Knights), la fantasy (Northgard: Uncharted Lands, Paper Dungeons...) et travaillé avec de nombreux éditeurs français. Je traduis également du jeu de rôle (Mage 20th, Conan), des jeux vidéo et des romans dans l'univers W40K (Black Library). En tant que joueur, je sais que la traduction se doit d'être impeccable pour assurer une bonne expérience de jeu. Storm Weavers me replonge dans l'ambiance des Livres Dont Vous Êtes Le Héros de ma jeunesse, écrits par Ian Livingstone, mais en y ajoutant un nouveau twist pour s'adapter au jeu de société moderne. Je suis très heureux de travailler sur ce projet ; avec Anna, nous allons nous assurer d'offrir la meilleure expérience de jeu possible aux joueurs francophones !


So that’s all news for now. Take care and hear you soon with the next update!

Greetings, Adventurers!


We will be sending out a smoke test for the surveys right after this update post. This will go out to a small percentage of backers. If you receive your link today, please fill it out ASAP so we can work out any issues if they exist.


Assuming there are zero issues, the remainder of the surveys will be going out tomorrow!

Backerkit Surveys in review! Expect your Survey in few days!
almost 3 years ago – Sat, Jul 10, 2021 at 01:50:53 AM

Greetings, Adventurers!


First of all, thank you very much for your true dwarven patience!  Here's some good news - we've finally completed the Backerkit Pledge Manager setup. So what are the next steps?

   1) We are waiting for Backerkit to accept our survey. The process may also take up to 2 business days.
   2) If we get a green light, we will run a "smoke test" - we will send surveys to 5% of backers to check if everything is okay.
   3) Right after the smoke tests are finished and the final fixes are made, we will send surveys to all of you!


Just in case, if you haven't had the pleasure of using Backerkit Pledge Manager yet, let us show you what it looks like:


1st STEP 

In this step, you can just move further by clicking "Get started" button, or you can switch your pledge by clicking "switch your pledge level" text just below the button. 

2nd STEP

Then you will see the message as presented below - just confirm it by clicking "Got it, thanks!" and then click "Next: Add-ons"  to move further. This message is presented in case someone feels confused or missed the possibility of changing the pledge at previous step.

3rd STEP

This is an add-ons section. Your pledge has already been automatically added to the basket on the right, but at this step you can freely buy additional products - these can be add-ons from the campaign as well as additional copies of the game. Both campaign add-ons and additional products are listed as "add-ons" in the store, so don't get confused by that. 

4th STEP

This section is simple - we ask you to provide your shipping address. 

5th STEP

This is the last step - order summary. At this stage, you will see your total account balance for additional products, add-ons and shipping costs. After paying the balance, the survey is complete and all you have to do is to wait for the game to arrive at your door!

So, we hope that this will be helpful! Expect your surveys soon! 


With Dwarven Regards, 

Mat,
