What is Warhammer Age of Sigmar Soulbound?
If you haven’t done so already, we highly recommend reading our review of Soulbound. But, as a summary, this fantasy table top RPG puts you in the shoes of a Soulbound. Called by the Gods of Order to bring holy wrath upon the forces of Chaos, Death, and Destruction. You are bonded with your party and are tasked to travel the mortal realms aiding the people of the land. Whether by battle prowess, intrigue, or locating lost artifacts. The great appeal from this game is that you truly feel powerful. Each offensive action can fell swathes of enemies as their waves break upon your wall of power. A remarkable and exhilarating experience!
So what do you get in the Starter Set?
In the starter set, that is now available to pre-order and/or acquire digitally via the official store found here, you get a plethora of goodies. Everything in the package, whether it be digital or physical, will allow a group of players and GM to pick up and go adventuring.
First of all, the Faltering Light adventure. This 48 page module takes the party to the city of Brightspear. Recently reclaimed from the clutches of the Chaos forces of Tzeentch, the God King’s celestial host of Stormcast Eternals seek your aid. Despite now in the control of order, there are still dangers and hordes that lurk in the undercity. You are tasked in routing them out and stemming any more corruption to the city.
Not only that but, there is a guide to the city of Brightspear with everything you need to know. From wonderful locations, lovable and not so lovable characters, hooks for more adventures and stories, as well as a map. This is great for starting in Brightspear or even continuing your adventures.
If you pre-order the physical edition there will also be 8 six-sided dice to fulfill the tactile experience and view the cascading numbers required to play. Alongside that are 5 pre-generated character sheets from which players can pick and play with straight away. These are accompanied by the rules reference sheets for all those queries and questions when cutting down hordes of enemies, bending the weaves of magic to your will, and how to barter with that cheeky merchant trying to con you.
How do you go from here?
The Soulbound Starter Set is a wonderful place for new and veteran parties to start adventuring. Whether you are completely fresh to the game, or have played all the modules so far, the city of Brightspear will take you on a thrilling ride defending order and delivering justice. Not only that but simply exploring such an exhilarating setting and environment. Whether it be the amazing writing by Christoper Walz, or the plethora of exquisitely talented artists and illustrators, the world is magnificent!
From here, there are several directions you could take or lead up to this setting. The Crash and Burn free supplement, written by the marvelous Elaine Lithgow, pulls the party towards Brightspear battling from atop an Duardin (warhammer dwarves) airship. The Cities in Flame supplement, found in the Gamemaster’s Screen, has whopping 25 more story hooks with 12 superb writers! Including 5 in the city of Brightspear and beyond. Moving from here, you can pick up the recently released Shadows in the Mist module. Here, the party ventures to the city of Anvilgard and aid against a plague damning the city.
All in all, the Age of Sigmar Soulbound Soulbound Starter Set is a must if you want to delve into a new TTRPG or even advance you campaigns if you already play.
