Final Day: REFRESHER, NEW ADD ON, VIDEO Q&A, FINAL STRETCH GOALS
Yesterday, I talked about our Stretch Goals and issued a challenge to see if we could unlock another goal or two prior to the end of the campaign. Well, you sure showed this Aquatic Ambassador that humanity is up to the challenge!
Since yesterday's post, together we managed to unlock FOUR Stretch Goals, bringing our total (thus far) up to THIRTEEN! A remarkable accomplishment that will add new monsters, a new scenario, more art, and a new Add On opportunity to our project list!
Yesterday saw us add a boatload of new backers. I want to take a moment to highlight some key Update posts that new backers may want to check out (and existing backers may want to read as a refresher!).
COMPLETE PLAYTEST MANUSCRIPT PREVIEW - PARTS 1-6: Read the entire manuscript for the game now! Remember, though, there are still some minor edits, development and proofing that need to be done. But, you can consider this about 95% finished.
Jan. 20 update - REWARD TIERS: your best starting point for figuring out which Backer Reward Level to choose to help support this project.
Jan. 21 update - ADD ON REWARDS: the important companion piece to the Reward Tiers topic.
By hitting so many Stretch Goals yesterday, we've unlocked another key ADD ON reward, so I'm going to talk about that real quick:
This new ADD ON is a physical, printed card deck featuring the Quip quotes and Cinematic powers featured in Appendix I and II of the manuscript. If you look at the complete reward tier chart (below), you'll see that all backers receiving the PDF version of They Came from Beneath the Sea! will receive a Print-and-Play PDF version of these cards. That means you'll be able to make your own deck at home.
HOWEVER, if you want a printed, physical deck - you can ADD ON +$15 to your Pledge Total and confirm your selection in BackerKit during our post-campaign process.
IMPORTANT - This ADD ON reward, the Quip & Cinematic Card Deck, can ONLY BE ADDED to Reward Tiers that are receiving the HARDCOVER rulebook for They Came from Beneath the Sea! This card deck will be added to the shipment containing your hardcover rulebook - if you are not receiving the hardcover rulebook as part of your rewards, there's no shipment to add it to.
If you want to add the Quip & Cinematic Card Deck - the physical, printed deck - to your rewards, you must be pledged to the MAIN CAST reward tier (or higher).
Again, the step-by-step process for adding additional rewards is included in THIS UPDATE.
(Thanks again to Karpomatic for suggesting this Stretch Goal, and thanks to all backers for moving the pieces and making the campaign grow to a point where it was even possible to make this happen!!)
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

FINAL STRETCH GOALS
Now that we've annihilated all the Stretch Goals I'd laid out in yesterday's post, it's time to throw up some final challenges, and see if we can add these final additional content rewards.
At $45,000 in funding - SUPPLEMENTAL SWIMMING SAVAGES! - A boatload of new threats and challenges will be created and released as a Threat File! PDF, added on to the rewards list for all backers receiving the They Came from Beneath the Sea! rulebook PDF.
At $47,500 in funding - A NEW SCENARIO - One final adventure to be had with a new scenario PDF, added on to the rewards list for all backers receiving the They Came from Beneath the Sea! rulebook PDF.
At $50,000 - OPTIONAL OCEAN-DWELLING OPPONENTS - A raftful of new threats and challenges will be created and released as a Threat File! PDF, added on to the rewards list for all backers receiving the They Came from Beneath the Sea! rulebook PDF.
SO - FINAL 27 HOURS as I post this... a whirlwind of activity ahead... THIRTEEN STRETCH GOALS UNLOCKED ...
(A gentle reminder that the new Quip & Cinematic Card Deck can only be added on to reward lists that include the hardcover book; you just add +$15 to your pledge total; All Add On rewards will be confirmed in our post-campaign pledge manager)
