    I do not know anything about it. But assuming a small discount you can take a look at the backer levels.

    Beautiful map by the way

    As long as LW doesn't use the same money grubbing license system as Army Builder OR the weak update server for Hero Lab, I might pick this up. Wouldn't mind the fees if you didnt have to pay for the program up front. And that update servers cuts my connection do to lag every update, never mind I can download whole games through Steam. And if the Kickstarter is a clue, the cost is ~$35. That's the first tier that actually gets you a copy of the game. If they add some backer rewards, I might jump on, as it is, I'm not.

    I do believe there will be usage fees, as your data will be stored in their 'cloud'...at least that's how I understand it to work. Would be nice if there was an off-line way to work with it, but I understand why they're doing it this way.

    Really? Ugh, hope its not like that. Would be a major minus. I'd prefer google drive or drop box for my online storage needs, but I don't see that happening.

    Why the cloud? That's not something I guess I understand yet and it's certainly something I do NOT trust.

    I know, "It's the future" and all that but seriously? Do people ever realize how much they are giving away using the internet to store personal information? I'm probably a bit less trusting than I need to be but hey, it doesn't hurt to be a little paranoid these days.

    I was wondering if this had a way to store your data on your own drive and not use the cloud at all. It just seems to me like it's a way to keep you hooked into paying down the line if you want to keep access to your creation. That's a turn off for me. I don't even use Photoshops cloud to store my stuff.

I designed a region of my setting by taking a map, marked the points of interesst and fleshed out content, linked it together and went into further detail as I went along. It was fun doing it that way. Think of the Paizo Kingmaker map ( not the map, I don´t like that one ) but the marked plot hooks and landmarks.
    That sounds exactly like my app... and since mine hasn't been a roaring success what makes this one different and worth kick starting ? Oh well, best of luck with it anyway !

    Also, I do hope that this -> "With our patent-pending Fog of World™ technology..." is a tongue in cheek phrase or at least something different to the fog of war of what must be in 30 years worth of games by now not to mention all the VTT apps out there. I would not be impressed with a kickstarter to raise $100K just to spend it on lawyers to screw over the RPG community.
