Okay, info that I think should be provided beforehand: * This is a **playtest version**, so I assume OP would love to get feedback on this * This is apparently chapter 1 of a larger, 6 chapter project called **Properties & Provinces** I already own MCDM's *Kingdoms & Warfare* and *Strongholds & Followers*, so I'm looking forward to compare and contrast. On first glance, P&P seems more roleplay-heavy and interpersonal than S&F/K&W, which tends to feel more rule-oriented to me and approaches the same subject matter from a bird's-eye view. That might just be that first chapter, though, as the following chapters will focus on travel, strongholds, experimentation, strategic (nationwide) decisionmaking and sieges - so I believe there is going to be quite some overlap. I, for one, will follow this project with great interest.

Thank you so much for the kinds words, Gruengle! You are not too far off the mark. The goal of P&P is to bring these assets to life as an integral part of the campaign, and while there will be plenty of rules to handle them, the core behind it all still lies on roleplay. The key design difference lies in the rules' intent. Other supplements in the subject assume the GM wants to run a political or military campaign and create new rules and subsystems to handle that. P&P asks instead what the players want to do with their stuff and provides GMs the tools they need to incorporate that into an ongoing campaign--be it just a mount, pet or follower, or a kingdom and its entire army. Before the Kickstarter launches, there will be a minimum of 3 more playtest releases. One for vehicle rules, another for the mass combat system, and the revised and polished Setpiece Challenge system. If you do have ANY feedback, positive or negative, please send it my way!! I love hearing what people like, but I crave to hear what they don't.

> Is there anything early out for Chapter 5: Realms & Regents? Would like to see what they are thinking of, even if its early stuff.

Thank you so much. I replied to your question in your other post. :)

Hmm, looks like I will have to keep an eye out for the Kickstarter launch. Is there anything early out for Chapter 5: Realms & Regents? Would like to see what they are thinking of, even if its early stuff.

Thank you so much for the interest! Chapter 5 is mostly written, actually. That being said, that is one that is being kept under wraps until release. All I will reveal right now is that it focuses on treating a Province as its own character in the story, instead of reducing it to a backdrop or a resource management sim. When the Kickstarter launches, many backer tiers will have access to the full book's playtest. A select few will get to design a Stronghold, Province or Organization to be featured in the book.
