Won by the Sword, designed by Ben Hull, is the first of what was meant to be a series covering campaigns of the 30 Years War. The social media reaction on development and errata issues when this game first came out seems to have killed Ben Hull's desire to design games all together. This module is an attempt to give more players a chance to recognize Won by the Sword's brilliance. Ideally, this might spark a positive social media reaction, hopefully resulting in Ben Hull reconsidering his withdrawal.
