EN World Review – Soldiers of Fortune by Matt James

soldiers of fortune coverWell I’ve posted another EN World Review this week, and I have the real pleasure to recommend the new Soldiers of Fortune sourcebook to my fellow Dungeon Masters and 4E gamers.  This D&D 4E supplement was written by Matt James for the folks at Open Design – the publishers of Kobold Quarterly incidentally – and is a real tour de force examination on running a military style campaign, set against the backdrop of war and the pitched battles between armies.

Review of Soldiers of Fortune by Open Design

I have run a couple of military-style D&D campaigns in previous editions – 2nd Ed and 3.5 to be precise – and these campaigns can be a very enjoyable change of pace from the standard devil-may-care dungeon-delver adventuring that many D&D players experience.  The material provided by Mr. James offers a lot of solid assistance to Dungeon Masters wanting to try their hand at pushing their heroes into a blood-and-guts war-torn campaign arc, and is definitely priced to make it an attractive addition to any DM’s bookshelf.

Have you ever tried Dungeon Mastering a campaign set in the middle of a massive war between two kingdoms?  Or do you have first-hand experience with having your character pulled into a campaign where battles raged across the lands, or were forced (volunteered) to join the army?

As always, your comments and feedback are most welcome!
