New stretch goals: Richard Dansky, Adam Koebel, Lauren Roy... and Elizabeth Bear!


We're less than $500 away from unlocking Kenneth Hite's post-apocalyptic setting THE DAY AFTER RAGNAROK. That means it's time to announce our next set of stretch goals.

Since our campaign is moving faster than expected, and since we have so many worlds and authors lined up, we've decided to roll them out to you even faster! It's our pleasure to announce four new stretch goals today. We are proud and excited to have these creators involved in our campaign. Their works span Hugo-winning fiction, tabletop game design, and writing for best-selling video game franchises.

Without further ado, here they are:

Stretch goal #5: Unlocked at $49,000

SQUATCHTOWN — Walk the mean streets of a city where Bigfoot's not a legend and private eyes just might be nine feet tall. Take a walk on the real wild side where big heat meets big feet, and human and sasquatch worlds collide. (By Richard Dansky, author of Vaporware and Central Clancy Writer for Red Storm Entertainment/Ubisoft.)

Stretch goal #6: Unlocked at $51,000

DOWN AND OUT IN THE KINGDOM OF COINS — Whether you're registered agents of the High Guilds or illegal night marketeers wheeling and dealing under the noses of the powers that be, there's only one rule in the Kingdom of Coins: murder, dark magic or new, weird blasphemies — anything sells. (By Adam Koebel, co-creator of the ENnie-winning Dungeon World.)

Stretch goal #7: Unlocked at $53,000

THE HOLLOW — Quaint, remote Camden's Hollow is famous for its abundance of ghosts and its hospitality for ghost hunters, but when you arrive for a weekend of orb-spotting, you find the town deserted … except for the restless dead. (By Lauren Roy, author of Night Owls.) 

Stretch goal #8: Unlocked at $55,000

GOTHAM JAZZ — It's the height of the Jazz Age. The height of Prohibition. Benjamin Franklin's heirs — the Right Honorable Order of Thaumaturges — reign with their weird technology over an America gone strange, where masonry-domed city states hunker amid poisoned wastelands and munitions factories and beautiful women swill bootleg liquor in smoky speakeasies. (By Hugo and Sturgeon Award-winning author Elizabeth Bear.)

      @Franklin: Sorry, I missed this comment until just now! Yes, every world (including the stretch goals) will have a custom "banner" (basically a cover photo). There will also be a library of art that can be used for character avatars and story cards. We probably won't be able to commission custom art for every single world (due to scale and expense), but some will have indeed have custom art. Everything else will have art assembled from our library, which will match roughly by genre. Hope that helps!

      I am excited about quite a few of these worlds. Will or do these stretch goals incorporate the art (i.e. images/pictures) for each of these worlds?
