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)!

Based off the previews is that the design and layout you are using? It really looks good.
I'm playing around with design ideas in the preview. It's not going to be exactly the same because I can do color with the teasers and not with the book. I think that I hit paydirt with the Agincort font (the fancy headline font) straddling the Victorian and Medieval feel, though. :)
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.
I think that you will be safely in Alaska or going in the same direction the book is. ;)
Please define "PvP Skills" and fully define what you think it means to say "Consensual PvP".
Because, apparently you only think it's dueling or something.
Totally accepted and no worries.
I wasn't in a good mood that day, either, so we're good. Sorry for my misunderstanding you!
And to prove you aren't psychic - My "heart's desire" is to have fun playing a game. Sometimes that's improving my character, other times that's improving my PvE fighting skills or improving my PvP fighting skills, or maxing out my crafting.
Non-consensual PvP rules don't fall anywhere in my desires.
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.
