That's an amazing piece of art.
Simply imagining the running water makes for one amazing scene.
3.5M for 2 Big cities is so worth it, guess I'll have to see if I can increase that pledge some more :)

That's the stuff right there, the lore's as engrossing as the land.

You came through and gave me a super awesome screenshot AND a campaign almanac?
This makes me happy. I don't think we'll be able to make all the stretch goals, though, but I'm pleased with what we have (still, a big city would be nice).

Unfortunately, I've reached my limit for what I can afford to pledge.

Beautiful screenshot.

Love the stronghold stretch goal. I'm hoping that the management options will be similar to NWN2's Crossroad Keep.

The one thing I can't get excited about is the lore. It's not that I don't like it. I do. ...But hearing about the lore is like reading the back of a book I've already decided to buy. It's like getting dessert but no meal. I want the meat and potatoes. I want to get in there and explore and touch things and meet people. I want someone who supported Waidwen (or supports him still) to tell me why his iron-fisted rule in which he persecuted heretics was just and right. ...And I want that argument to make sense, even if I completely think he's wrong. I want to have some ignorant hick yell at me for using Hylspeak, laugh at his foolishness, only to have someone else make a better argument that makes me think twice. There are the bones for great stories in this, but the stories are what I want. I don't mean to slight the lore-craft. It's just that I hate licking the icing when I could have a full piece of cake. ...But I guess the point is to tease us, so in that regard I suppose I'm arguing against myself. :Cant's rueful grin icon:

EDIT: Always with teh typos.

WOW! This is absolutely gorgeous!
The Lore sounds thrilling and I canĀ“t wait for more informations.
I really hope, we get to the 3 and 3,5 Million mark. To bad I pledged via paypal...
BTW, if I pledge another 15$ through Paypal, would I also get the Campaign Almanac?

PS: The Screenshot looks amazing!

More interested in the lore stuff than the screenshot - but the screenshot does look nice. I guess I won't be undoing my plegde, heh.
