In Age of Sigmar: Soulbound’s new campaign, you decide the fate of a city

Age of Sigmar: Soulbound, the tabletop RPG adaptation of Games Workshop’s Warhammer Age of Sigmar miniatures game, has just received its second full campaign. Publisher Cubicle 7 has released PDFs of Blackened Earth and put physical copies up for pre-order. While the campaign can be viewed digitally right now, the books are coming Q2 2023 and the pre-order price is $39.99 / £29.99.

A five-part campaign with 70 locations and an illustrated city map, Blackened Earth seeks to pack plenty of adventure into its pages. The campaign centers around the industrial arms trading town of Greywater Fastness and tasks your party with navigating the many threats they face, from infighting to the Skaven and Sylvaneth knocking on the door.

While the previous Age of Sigmar: Soulbound campaign, Shadows in the Mist, drew inspiration from the Noir and Pulp genres, Blackened Earth tackles themes of industry versus the natural world.

“Each beat in the campaign focuses on one of multiple factions vying for control of Greywater Fastness,” Soulbound developer Sam Taylor told Wargamer, “As the drums of war constantly beat back- plan, reaching an inevitable breaking point.”

“The band explores every corner of the city and investigates what’s going on,” Taylor continues, but also adds, “There are many points later where the band goes off and explores the world outside the walls, allowing them to see the character of the city itself from different vantage points.

“We hope the situations the party finds themselves in will really test their morals,” Taylor said. He suggests that “their ultimate goal is to save the city”, but that the campaign might lead them to ask themselves: “Is the existence of Greywater Fastness ultimately worth the cost of producing it?” »

Taylor is particularly excited about the Blackened Earth destination, explaining that the campaign has multiple endings. “The final adventure takes pieces of everything that has come before and shakes up the formula. Here the party faces more crises than they can realistically handle, the choice is theirs which ones to tackle and how to go about it,” he says.

“The fate of Greywater Fastness is truly in their hands, and there are many potential outcomes for what happens to the city in the end.”

PDF copies of Age of Sigmar Soulbound: Blackened Earth are available now from DriveThruRPG for $19.99 / £17.60. Physical copies arrive Q2 2023 and can be pre-ordered from Cubicle 7’s store for $39.99 / £29.99.
