The StormVerse Chronicles are a series of stories that began with the five season long Storm Front, and continues now with Tempest Fore.
This is where it all began. The first chronicle follows a group of friends known as The Pack.
The second major chronicles, Tempest Fore follows Dade and others to the large metropolis of Saran City.
Mainstream is Marcel’s story.
Interludes are self contained stories that are scattered throughout The StormVerse Chronicles. Many events alluded to in the main series are often covered in these.
Ponderings is my own little corner of the SV, where I get to share my thoughts on anything and everything. Read at your peril!
New Zealand, you smell like awesome!
I have just returned to the Land of the Long White Cloud and it feels great. It’s supposedly ‘hot’ here but after spending a great deal of time in 40c plus temps repeatedly, I’m gonna take this so called heat and revel in it. Yus!
How’s the Polar Vortex treating you people on the wrong side of the world? I hope you aren’t freezing much. But if you are, just remember, it’ll be summer for you soon enough! And then you can complain about the heat and I can be happy in my cold winter!
So, this January ended up much like last January. Maybe we should call January Ty’s time off. Anyway, I’m back in my home base and have my SVness at my fingertips, writing and beyond. So stay tuned to the regular channels for updates. Gimmie a week or so to settle back in (though I’m planning on NYE2 posting sooner than that) and I’ll get SV Sundays underway for 2014. The big one for this year is of course, this:
I’m really looking forward to another cracking year like last year and getting into the tentpole of 2014 for the SV; Tempest Fore: Cede Nullis. Before we get to that we have a few stories and stars to catch up with. SCR II: The Archangels, and the next Mainstream.
I hope it’s a great year for everyone. Anyone have any particular hope or ambition or goal?
Gravity was my favourite movie of 2013 by a long way. Recently I’ve enjoyed Thor 2, Ender’s Game. I have yet to watch Catching Fire properly. There’s nothing on TV that I watch until Game of Thrones resumes. Love that show.
Anyway, must run! Peace!
About two weeks earlier than I’d intended, the new look family of SV sites are here! While I wanted major sections of the SV to have their own sites, the way that was structured just wasn’t working the way I wanted. They were too different and disconnected. This year has been amazing for content, and I wanted 2014 to have a site infrastructure that could help make that content easier to access for everybody. Something clean and simple in design, while still pretty! So, this almost like a One StormVerse project. Sorry if you liked any of our old layouts, but they’re all gone now. Every site uses a flat design theme that has a unified nav bar up the top, and footer at the bottom. Now it should be easier than ever for you to get around the SV. Every site now uses similar navigation structures that should make it easier for you to get where you need to go. READ will take you to the good stuff and that’s really all you need to get you started now! Here are some key notes for the new site design going into 2014;
I’m very happy to have the foundation of this new style for 2014 complete. Big thanks to ZachSanity from chat for his suggestion to embrace the new flat design style and uniform themes. There will still be some little CSS tweaks to get the colour schemes right on all the sites, but they’re pretty good to go right now! I was planning on launching all of them on New Years Eve but well, plans changed for me so I figured I’d get them out of the way now.
There are some things I want to do for 2014 to further improve the SV. Get the Wiki up to date. Add a bit more graphical swagger to the sites. Global announcement bar up the top. Easy way to see the latest chapter. Little things like that.
Here is something very cool from a new fan, Micha27 from chat! It’s a very cool drawing of Mr. Grumpy Pants; Storm.
Thanks a lot for this one, Micha27! Last week’s release got lost in the upgrade shuffle but you can find it by heading over to the What If? site. It’s not hard to miss since it’s the only one there at the moment! It’s a fan written piece that I’m sure you’ll enjoy, set in the Storm Front era and holiday themed.
Speaking of holiday themed, tomorrow’s SV Sunday release kicks off the Interludes season. So naturally, it’ll be on the Interludes site! lol. It’ll release at the same time chapters always release. I’ll have more information on that one in the morning.
Have a look around, and settle in to our new/old home for 2014. While I’m sure I’ll catch you all soon, I hope you have an amazing holiday season and I’ll catch you on the flipside!
It’s hard to believe we’re already up to the go home period of Tempest Fore’s second season. The final five chapters kick off with TF2.11: When Liberty Burns this Sunday at the usual time. The main chronicles all have 15 chapter seasons now, and these final five chapters kick things up a notch for some of our characters. I’m very curious to see how people feel about these last chapters of the season.
I have not fully settled on what I will be releasing after TF completes this season, but there are plenty of options. I hope you guys are really enjoying the season though, and most especially this year! TF will finish the season in the first week of December. In 2014 I may do two seasons of TF, which means TF will conclude its run in 2015. It’s helpful having this one release a week system so I can almost plan the year out as far as online releases go.
So we’re in the second season as you can see from above. That means Cede Nullis and Rising Tempest will be the seasons we get next year, and that means in 2015 we’ll see the end of Tempest Fore, and the two season special of The Return. That’s thirty five weeks taken up right there! Maybe I’ll fit Maelstrom onto the tail end of that year but with the side series and interludes it might get bumped to 2016. And that’s when we’ll find out who is getting married! As far as writing goes, I hope to actually be writing Maelstrom next year. I’m already well into Season 3 of Tempest Fore, so I write well ahead of where the SV Sunday updates are. I’m already planning what my life after The StormVerse Chronicles will be like, writing wise, but really, when The SVC does end with the final season of Maelstrom, it just means my next stage of work begins trying to push it further into other mediums.
Anyway, I think this is a great time to catch yourself up on Tempest Fore before this weekend’s chapter comes out. I’d love to hear what you guys think of it too! How do you like our new front page? Settling into it? I hope so. I’m out!
