Underworld Ascendant Kickstarter Update #28: Novel stretch goal unlocked, new stretch goal announced

With two days of funding left, the Underworld Ascendant Kickstarter campaign has shot into high gear once again. Last night, it sailed past $700,000 and 12,000 backers, unlocking the Tracy Hickman novel stretch goal, which will establish the backstory of the Dark Elves faction. The Lizardmen stretch goal at $750k seems like a sure thing now, but to make things more interesting, OtherSide Entertainment have added an intermediate "mini-stretch goal" at $725k - the Dire Grove. The latest Kickstarter update explains:

The next stretch goal, at $750,000, is to unlock the Lizardman. The Lizardmen are fierce hunters who worship the Underswamp and its wild magics. The crafty Lizardmen prefer luring their prey into traps to immobilize their future dinner. What better creatures to guard the secrets of the Underswamp?

We've already funded their home with our first stretch goal, the Underswamp. So now let’s get them to settle in. Besides, they’re the only intelligent creatures that would actually like to live there.

To help induce the Lizardmen to move in, let’s unlock the Dire Grove, a special area within the Underswamp. The Dire Grove is dominated by a massive species of swamp willow. These willows make fine roosts for Lizardmen treehouses. They also bear a fluorescent green berry, which is said to have an odd magical effect if consumed.

Upon our Kickstarter reaching $725,000 in funding, halfway to bringing the Lizardmen home, we will add the Dire Grove to Underworld Ascendant.
You might also be interested in the previous Kickstarter update from yesterday, which provided an evocative description of the kind of experience we can expect from the game's beginning moments, a little physics demonstration, and an endorsement from good old Brian Fargo (recorded before the game was renamed from Ascension to Ascendant?).
