Thanks to You, They WILL Come from Beneath the Sea!

Posted by James Bell (Collaborator)

Hello Drylanders,

We did it! We funded a new Storypath system game, They Came from Beneath the Sea!

And not just that! We unlocked FIFTEEN STRETCH GOALS!

We added an alphabet-soup of new opponents with 5 Threat File PDF sections! We added 4 new Adventure Scenarios! We added a ready-to-go character pack PDF, a discounted Redbubble T-shirt opportunity, a digital wallpaper, upgrades to the Director's Screen and additional art for the core book, AND an optional add on for the Quip & Cinematic Card Deck (don't forget, you can only add that on to reward tiers receiving the hardcove rulebook...)

Who would have thought we'd unlock all of that awesomeness back when we started this campaign... in 2018!


So, thank you to all the backers who supported us and made this happen. And a personal thanks to everyone who participated online, either in the comments section of the kickstarter or on social media around the web. I've got a bunch of new actual play messageboard threads and Youtube channel/podcasts to follow! This is the game that launched (and will sink) a thousand ships...

And thanks for all the puns! A boatload of puns!

And now for a special big reveal...

I know, right?!  I'm not actually an undersea alien - IT WAS A RUBBER MASK THE WHOLE TIME!

Sorry for the deception, and special thanks to my SFX and makeup team for helping me with this one!


So, as noted in the previous update, I'll be sending out updates once a month and whenever we've got a new goal, survey, or other item to cover. If you have any questions or need clarification on something related to the kickstarter, you can leave it in the comment section - I will be notified with every addition. Or, you can find the Contact Creator button and Rich will forward your message to me.

For setting stuff and questions about the game itself, it's probably best to post to the Onyx Path Discussion Group here

So, thanks to everyone for helping build this community and this game and celebrating the wacky fun (and chilling creatures) that will be unleashed!

Now to go collapse in the sand for a few hours and recover from the awesomeness of the last couple days! High fives in the comment section, and you'll hear from me again soon...

In the meantime, enjoy this additional BONUS content, featuring the Gentleman Sea Captain's Guide to Aquatic Threats! Perhaps this can aid you once you discover that... They Came from Beneath the Sea!
