There is plenty of space for the GM to add things like that. The Borderlands itself is roughly the same size as Europe and there are plenty of open spaces for more "PC Race" settlements as well as vast hordes of orcs.

We've met our funding and now get into the interesting part - Stretch Goals!

Borderland Provinces focuses on a key area about the size of Europe where many of the larger Frog God Games adventures take place (Rappan Athuk, Lost City of Barakus, Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms) and ties them together. It is a dark medieval fantasy realm filled to bursting with adventure, but still has plenty of room for you to insert your own adventures.

We are also publishing three SEPARATE versions for Pathfinder RPG, Fifth Edition, and Swords & Wizardry so you can pick your poison (or poisons)!

Correction - Pett is a daemon.

Demons exist merely to destroy - Daemons are a bit more artistically nihilistic. As the PRD states clearly under the monster entry Pett, Richard
With each life claimed and each atrocity meted out, Pett spreads fear, mistrust, and despair, tarnishing the luster of existence and drawing the Earth ever closer to it's final, ultimate ruin.

I'm pretty sure he's an Arcanaloth, specifically. ;)

I crunched the numbers on land mass and posted this at the Kickstarter a bit ago.

"The map is 2,250 miles by 1,500 miles, this is approximately 3,375,000 square miles.

Europe, including the parts of Russia that are considered European, is about 3,932,642.4 square miles."

I just checked the area of the United States. Without Alaska, it comes in at 3.142 million square miles.

And that amount of space and travel time is why those Encounter Tables are so damned important!

And all of the above applies to THREE game systems.

Pathfinder, Swords & Wizardry, and Fifth Edition!

Yay!!! Good chance I will have moved to Alaska by the time this is printed. Hopefully I can find a new group of players there that I can run all my FGG games with.
When are you moving there, Dragonmoon?
I am moving to Anchorage in December-January.

I think that you will be safely in Alaska or going in the same direction the book is. ;)

Bill and Matt talking about what "1st Edition Feel" means to Frog God Games and Necromancer Games.

If I can't walk away from the game for 10 minutes without the possibility of being killed and, possibly, my stuff taken, then there's no reason for me to be playing the game. Because that would not be enjoyable to me.

There's nothing in the game that would discourage that kind of behavior, there is no way to actually give consequences that can't be worked around as they are in the real world.

Just because YOU won't do it, doesn't mean 1-in-50 people aren't going to do it and I don't want to play with those people.

I don't know how much more clear I can be than that.

Even the idea of having a non-PvP server was dismissed with a handwave.

I will say that I passed on the game completely because of the non-negotiable non-consensual PvP. I didn't get past that hump to any other aspect of the game.

The PDF will have unlabeled (player) maps. The maps in the PDF won't be hi-res versions, otherwise the file would become unmanageably big for most people. (The PDFs are kept at 150 dpi).

Bill got the test printings of Sword of Air from the printer about a week or so ago. They've been approved. That's as much as I know at this point.

A bit thin, yes. From Sword of Air through to the Book of Lost Spells for Pathfinder, it's starting to hurt a bit on my wrist from all of the clicky-clicks. %#DigitalAgeProblems

Also, the creature was written to be an adversary to the characters, not a summonable tool. Some of the arguments against also apply to other elementals as well so I don't quite follow the logic.

Remember, the Usurer is also the richest and most politically powerful member of The Camp. And most residents will respond well to money and favors. Being marked for death or capture in the only real place to rest in the area isn't very good.

Solution 3.

Spoiler:

The Usurer is a CR 17 Lich who only uses a seeming to disguise himself. I've always thought that the fact that he's not what he presents himself to be was pretty much an "open secret" at the camp, but since he's so powerful everybody just let's it ride. I would expect most camp inhabitants wouldn't be too happy about someone going around saying "He's a Lich!".

No one makes RPGs for the money. It's not really money you can live off of unless you're with a big company... and even then it's meager wages.

Believe me, I've been trying to make it my living since i was laid off from the Newspaper. It's not happening as anything other than a side job.

And yes, those facts DO make me grind my teeth when people want free stuff or complain about pricing.

It applies as long as the weapon is being used as a ranged weapon at the time. Too much "overthink" going on.

(P.S. I liked some thing about 4E, but the way it played wasn't my cup of tea. Pointing out this or that was done in 4E is a complete "whatever" for me and has absolutely no bearing on the conversation other than to drag edition warring into a thread. Just sayin'.)

They talk about alignment tendencies in the Oaths. One of the Oath paths talks about Chaotic Good as being the common alignment.

Yes. They've unhooked alignment from all classes and it's about time.

Supporting a multitude of settings was the one of the straws on TSRs back in 90s, not the fact that they had them.

One or two books detailing each setting (A campaign and a monster book, maybe) would be, in my opinion, a smart way to handle it.

Or farming these projects out to other companies as they are the adventures.

Obviously the newer the product the more accurate. So if anything in Stoneheart Valley contradicts the original Bard's Gate, then go with Stoneheart Valley.

Also, Dunes of Desolation lists many gods. Greg Vaughan has said that they are all cannon.

From my talks with Bill (and his talks with Greg) it looks like the campaign setting itself will be Summer of 2015 (around Gen Con) at the earliest.

"Instead of flooding the market with an endless tide of RPG books, we’re moving to diversify the business. We have two active MMOs, board games, miniatures, t-shirts, novels, and even more stuff we’re working on."

I'm not going to be of much help here because I think that both are fine lead-ins for Tsar.

I'd say run TWO games. "Stoneheart to Tsar" and "Barakus to Rappan Athuk".

Problem solved!

Isaac Daneil - I only disagree in that I also see a lot of ideas culled from 1st and 2nd edition. You're selling it short by saying that it only pulls from 3rd and 4th editions.

Lots of options + ease of implementation is what I like about it.
