Even more stretch goals: Steven Sanders, Steven S. Long, and Lilith Saintcrow! Plus, new blog posts

Posted by Storium / Stephen Hood (Creator)

This morning we announced three new stretch goals, and you've already unlocked two of them! Sam Sykes' CITY OF FOG AND SALT and Tracy Barnett's IRON EDDA are both coming to Storium. We've also unlocked STORIUM LOCALIZED, which means we're committing to translating Storium's interface into three more languages.

Also, did you see our latest blog posts? Today our press maestro Leonard Balsera interviewed Storium uber-playtester and world creator Lillian Cohen-Moore. And last week our co-founder and lead engineer Josh Whiting offered a peek under Storium's hood, for the technically-minded.

Last but not least, it's time to introduce another round of new stretch goals! We usually try to avoid posting more than one Kickstarter update in a single day, but these goals are pretty exciting and we wanted to get them out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for understanding!

Unlocks at $132,000

SYMBIOSIS — Explorers, mechanics, and adventurers expand and repair a visually stunning 1940s-style bio-punk world on the brink of catastrophe — or lay claim to what comes next — in these tales of ingenuity and intrigue. (From Eagle Award-nominated comic and concept artist Steven Sanders of Wolverine and the X-Men, The Five Fists of Science, and more. Adapted for play by Storium's lead writer, Will Hindmarch.)

THE HEROES RETURN — After a decade in distant lands fighting the Shadow Lord, the kings, nobles, wizards, and soldiers of Veltaria have at last come home. But the High King is dead, and the land they knew has become a different place in the past ten years. As returning heroes, you and your compatriots must decide what course you'll take, and perhaps fight again — though not necessarily with arms or spells — to win yourselves a place in this familiar yet strange land. (By Steven S. Long, award-winning game designer and RPG industry veteran. Co-author of approximately 200 books, he’s best known for his work with Champions and the HERO System.)

Unlocks at $138,000

KEYMASTER — Become one of the chosen few who can open the doors between reality and fairy tales. See wonders, free minds, and bring magic back into the world. But be careful: strange, dangerous things lie behind some of these doors. Our fairy tales have teeth, and ancient evils have their own plans for Keymasters like you. (By Lilith Saintcrow, author of over forty novels, including the Dante Valentine and Strange Angels series.)

      It's really great to see the details in the techie blog. AngularJS added to me take-a-look-at-this list :)

      Does the idea of plans for the GSM becoming a web service mean we may see an API available for Storium some time in the future? *holds breath excitedly*
