“Winter was hard, but we were foolish to wish for Spring. With the sun came the floods of melted ice, thick fields of mud and the raids of territorial wolves. We would hope for summer but know not what challenges that would bring in this treacherous place.”
Before the Snowy Peaks, We Wept is a storygame that tells the story of a community in an unfamiliar land. The games structures are designed to mirror the seasons. You meet four times a year to play, once in each season, and use the weather as inspirations for your stories.
It was originally commissioned for ME&R, an alt/indie/art games zine.
