Golden Goblin's Tales of the Caribbean Stretch Goals

It's not surprising that the Tales of the Caribbean Kickstarter by  Golden Goblin Press easily reached it's initial goal of $20,000 with almost three weeks to go.    I assumed the awesome stretch goals of added chapters, more scenarios, an extra pdf, and a fiction collection would progress like the previous campaigns.

What really struck my eye, was the $29,500 stretch goal: Gunboat Diplomacy.

Directly off the 9/22 Update (edited)

This additional chapter to the Guide to the Caribbean, by Jeffrey Moeller, will allow keepers to run the entire collection of core scenarios as a campaign. Investigators become involved with the U.S. Navy’s Office of  Naval Intelligence ("ONI"), which is still in its infancy. The investigators find themselves on-board the U.S.S. Lamprey, on special patrols to protect both American interests and the whole of mankind against the mysterious forces of the Cthulhu Mythos. This section will:
  • discuss the actual history and operations of ONI in the Caribbean in the 1920s;
  • discuss the secret history that led to the establishment of the U.S.S. Lamprey as a "black ops" patrol, with additional duties beyond the usual
  • outline the career of Lt. Cmdr. Hughes Deschamps, a naval intelligence officer who knows what the world faces
  • include a detailed description of the U.S.S. Lamprey (a plan of which will be included in the prior ship plan stretch goal)
  • detail resources available to the crew (including what elements of ONI know and do not know about the horrors of the Mythos)
  • provide character templates for a naval command officer; naval attache/political officer; signal analyst; pilot; and appropriate sailors for a small patrol ship like the Lamprey.
A little naval/primordial Delta Green-esque action?  Sign me up!
