Gold & Glory is a sourcebook set in the Forgotten Realms for the 2nd-edition Dungeons & Dragons ruleset. It details various mercenary organizations of the Realms.

The jingle of gold and the chance to earn glory in the battlefield motivate many people to answer the call to arms. These men and women are mercenaries, willing to fight someone else's battle for the chance to earn a few coins or lasting fame. Gold & Glory describes the mercenary companies of the FORGOTTEN REALMS® Campaign Setting. The famous and the infamous are detailed within: the Flaming Fist, possibly the most powerful private army on Toril; The Mindulgulph Mercenary Company, certainly the most bizarre; the honorable Bushido, the sly Masquerade, the snobbish Order of the Blue Boar, the hard-fighting She-Wolves, and many more. Many of the companies are brought to life in the 16 full-page full color portraits in this sourcebook. Gaming information, including statistics for BATTLESYSTEM™ Game scenarios, is offered as well. Player characters can adventure with these mercenary corps, earning gold and glory for themselves![3]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. Gold & Glory refers to several historical events as "recent", including the end of the Horde Wars (1360 DR), the Amnian discovery of Maztica (1361 DR), the settlement of Fort Flame in Maztica (1364 DR), and the ongoing power vacum in Tethyr (1360s DR). It is therefore assumed the sourcebook is set at some point between 1361 and 1364 DR.
