Amen!


Just $750 away from getting the Deities included in the book.

And they are included now :) I am sure this is going to be an awesome, thorough guide on the Borderland Provinces area, and that it will be a great ressource for running, for example, Lost City of Barakus and Rappan Athuk campaigns! And the kickstarter also includes a hardcover book of adventures set in the Borderland Provinces.

I am just about to wrap up and conclude a large sandbox+metaplot campaign that has been running for a good 3 and half years+ (characters are in the level 16-18 range).

Then I am going to begin a new sandbox campaign shortly, that will begin in Endhome and have both Lost City of Barakus and Rappan Athuk as some of it's biggest "campaign tentpole" dungeons. The Borderland Provinces campaign book and Adventures book comes in as REALLY handy ressources for our next campaign I am sure! :D (Together with Cults of the Sundered Kingsdoms, that I am buying as an add-on).
So I couldn't be happier about the timing of this KS!

I am going for the PF version, though I can see the benefit of all three versions! My own second choice would be the S&W version, as if/when we aren't playing PF I think ACKS would be my preferred ruleset.

BTW: I am SO going to be placing a certain Keep on the Borderlands somewhere in the Borderland Provinces... who can resist doing that. Hommlet and the Moathouse will be there too. And a certain Tower of the Stargazer will be put not so far outside Endhome (west of it). Along the Sinnar coast, one or two hexes south of Endhome I will put the Lonely Coast from Raging Swan Press, and I plan to kick-off the campaign running Retribution there (at least it will be one starting hook for the players to go and deliver something to the Curate at Cymer Priory), and then the players will have reasons to go back to Endhome afterwards, and EXPLORE ON! :D

All right, reviewed Barakus and its Player's Guide today and posted again about the KS, hopefully getting some people to check it out. (In case you haven't read Barakus yet, take a look at my review - the book's SO worth it!) :)

Part One of 'Of Necromancers and Frog Gods' is up over at BlackGate.com.

It's a history of Necromancer Games. Part Two will cover Frog God.

A third post will look into The Lost Lands. I touch on them in Part Two, but there's so much to talk about, I had to spin it off into its own essay.

I've been backing the kickstarters since Razor Coast and love what FGG is doing.


Stretch Goal #5 “Echoes from the Otherside” fiction is unlocked and with 61 hours left. Stretch goal #6 is "Perilous Places #2" at $54,000. Come on, "You Can Do It!"

After reading the stretch goals I want to know what products are from the Borderlands. I would like a full list...

Anybody???

Also, I agree that Keep on the Borderlands has got to be placed in this area.

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.


Yeah that is one of the things I really like about the Lost Lands - that there is PLENTY of room to place your own stuff without "breaking anything", that and well....that FGG just consistently produces gaming material of the very highest quality! (both production AND content wise). And certainly some of the best dungeons and modules ever made :)

There is no official location for "The Keep," but I myself would put it somewhere along the northern edge of the Wilderland Hills, which is the southern marches of the Kingdom of Suilley. There are definitely small keeps along the edges of those hills to protect against incursions, and in fact a major assault into neighboring Keston Province happened only 10 years ago in the campaign timeline. It could even be placed right along the Trader's Way, if you want it to have a wild but oft-traveled road nearby. The further you get from the Trader's Way, the wilder the territory becomes, so you're basically toggling the Keep's isolation upward as you move eastward.
If you look at the map and find the hex where the Trader's Way appears to go directly over the top of a hill when entering the Wilderland Hills from the north, I would place it in the hex to the northeast of that one (O-17), in the extreme eastern portion of the hex. That places the Keep about 40 miles from the stone Hyperborean road, where there might still be a dirt road but it's into an area where the forts are extremely isolated from any sort of immediate help from anywhere.
Hmm, this might be an interesting update to post, too.

There are 39 hours left and we have unlocked stretch goal #7. The next goal I would like to see unlocked is this one:

$59,000 Stretch Goal #11: Perilous Places #3. Specific encounter tables for the Forlorn Mountains, the Kal’Iugus Mountains, the Meridian Range, the Rampart Mountains, and the eerie peaks of the Cretians. This is an expansion to the free Alternative Encounter Tables PDF.


Yeah, that's really also my primary end-goal right for this KS!


On a related note, also check out next week's podcast installment of Guys, Games and Beer for an interview with Bill, Skeeter, Matt and me along with a cast of thousands (you'll see what I mean when you watch it), while we were at Gamehole Con last week.

The total is climbing!


Tom, would you happen to know which episode of the podcast it would be?

Next Thursday. Part two of the Gamehole Con interview.


Last day!

We have hit 12 stretch goals, and the $95 Complete GM package is hugely discounted from retail, so you need to get it while it's cheap and while it comes with lots of free stuff. Don't miss out on what's going to be a popular and classic adventuring area for 3 editions simultaneously.

It's good stuff. I have a preference for the Hibiki. Charging hard towards the finish line.


Less than $400 away from the $64,000 stretch goal with 6 hours left.

$64,000 Stretch Goal #15: Spire of Iron and Crystal (paid). This module has already been published for Fifth Edition in its “Director’s Cut” format, in Quests of Doom 2. If we hit this stretch goal, we will publish the pdf of the Director’s Cut for Pathfinder and Swords & Wizardry, and sell it as a $5 add-on to the Backer Kit. LOCKED


Stretch goal #15 is done.

The Exchange

Pledged now.


And it's done.

Whoop! Just in time for The Blight to start, oh my aching wallet :D

Nice total, I hope of enough to encourage more 5E stuff, but maybe not if divided between the three rule set. A lot of work to publish in 3 rules and SW/PF well established.


dang it, meant to pledge to it tonight but thought it was going on a bit longer. any chance for extra paypal drive or anything or am I gonna have to wait for the release?

also congrats on the funding!


I'm liking the free Bard's Gate and Durbenford PDFs.... :)


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I posted this on the Comments page but thought more people should see it.

To the Frogs, you say you appreciate our supporting your desire to create these books. Well, here is the reality. If the material you create wasn't as good as it is we wouldn't support you like we do.


I ordered the pdf for Bard's Gate not that long ago, but I only have Durbenford in hard copy at present.


I just ordered Durbenford in PDF a few days ago, and I have Bard's Gate in print and PDF. Oh well, it will be good for someone.


DMMMITTT!!!!! I JUST found this freaking KS today!!!

AARRGGHHH!!!

I'm running a Barakus game that started this weekend. Sigh. Well, I guess I'm going to have to buy it all piecemeal...


Mark, The Blight KS is LIVE.

Publisher, Frog God Games

Backerkit will bebout next week. They shut down for the holidays and we cannot launch it. Thank you for your patience!


I got my backerkit, 73 shipping ouch! But such is the cost of living here.

Are FGG going to release the numbers of each version? Just cos I'm curious :)


There are some significant items missing from the Backerkit listing. Such as the Pledge that got you 4 copies of the Players' Guide and the Players' Gazetteer.

EDIT: Just spoke with Chris AKA Viking Frog and he will get the problems straightened out.

Bummer, I did mine already.

Just got my PDFs, at a first glance it looks great! Can't wait to get the physical books so I can read it properly. (I hate reading from a screen, hence my abundance of overburdened bookshelves.)

One immediate question... there's a lot of effort gone into providing pronunciation for most of the places and names. One that seems to be conspicuously absent, though, is the pronunciation of "Foere" and "Foerdwaith"... My reading is "foe-AIR" and "FOE-erd-wayth"... is that about right?


Love the PDFs as well. Cant wait for the whole Campaign Setting

Shadram I was wondering the same thing, but I like what you provided.


I would say I can't wait for this to be available at retail, but I have so many other books from lost lands to buy, so I guess I can wait.

But I can't wait.

To the Frogs, I just have to say that you guys exceeded my already-high expectations on this one! I'm still reading through my PDFs but this is ticking all of my GM Setting Requirement boxes and is filled with so many plot seeds and ideas, I don't know where to start.

This is what RPG settings should be about - empowering GMSs to run games. The thing oozes history, conflict, and verisimilitude without ever losing sight of the fact that it exists to inspire and support RGP stories. Great job!

And although the Blight really isn't my cup of tea (I don't really like my FRPG tech beyond Renaissance-level), the full blown campaign setting kickstarter can't come fast enough! I'm also looking to pick up Sword of Air once there's some additional money in the wallet.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this project full of awesome, awesome RPG goodness.

P.S. Pathfinder all the way!

While I do not want to speak for the Frogs, I do believe the "tech level" question was addressed in one of the early updates. Matt Finch described it as "weird" not "modern." He has a lengthy discussion about it.

It is the second update right after the KS launched. I do believe it will abrogate any concerns people might have about "high tech" invading their game.


In addition to the update justmebd mentioned, Greg Vaughan posted the following in the Comments section of the Kickstarter campaign:

"...The tech level of The Blight isn't really beyond the Renaissance level, though some things look a little like it. But even then they're more a magical golemworks/necromanctic arts sort of thing rather than clockworks or what-have-you...."

Yes, Greg did post about the Lost Lands tech level and the Blight & Razor Coast and how they fit with other regions in response to my question. I don't doubt the Blight will be awesome. For my groups and campaign tastes, however, it would strictly be a guilty pleasure/completionist buy for me and I don't have the money to drop on it right now.

Sword of Air seems more up my alley. FGG purchases are always well worth it but such mighty tomes aren't cheap. I have to go where I'll get the most utility first.

Makes a lot of sense. Hopefully you won't fault a man for trying to boost the signal. :)

Absolutely not! I'm glad to see it funded.

Plus, my completionist tendencies will probably have getting around to it eventually. All's good in the Lost Lands as far as I'm concerned.
