It's unusual to report that a Kickstarter campaign has reached its first stretch goal three days before its conclusion, but that's what happened with Underworld Ascendant this morning. The game's rate of funding slowed down somewhat after the spike it experienced around the time it hit its base funding goal, but it's now at over $650k, with over 11,500 backers. The first stretch goal was the Underswamp, which was described in a Kickstarter update from yesterday:

Crouched on the confluence of two slow-moving subterranean river systems, the Underswamp is a miasma of odd fungus, twisted trees and creeping lichen. Dank and full of life; a menagerie of deadly toothed and venomous predators roam the spongy terrain. But there is also strange beauty to be found, such as shimmering fluorescent air plants floating above the dark waters. Deep within the Underswamp lie ruins of the temple of Ishtass. This extensive complex, nearly a league across and half sunk in the swamp, is said to hold ancient secrets.

With the Underswamp comes the Rotworm Skin Boots, which give adventurers extra speed wading through the swamp. Let’s all put on the boots and make a final sprint to bring the Underswamp home to the Sygian Abyss!
That's now in, with four days left to unlock the Tracy Hickman novel at $700k, and more importantly, the Lizardmen at $750k. Hopefully the funding spike from four days ago won't turn out to have cancelled out the usual last day funding rush.
