"This publication proposes rules for adding the Soldier of Fortune to your game as a Martial Archetype option for the Fighter. This Subclass resembles some of the traditional melee and dual wielding Fighter/Ranger variants of previous editions, but puts a distinct emphasis on the element of chance involved in any martial exploit. Other inspirations include Critical Hit/Fumble charts throughout the history of the game, both official and homebrewed.
This Archetype focuses on melee combat, encouraging Players to take risks. Dealing out as many melee attacks as possible against their enemies to maximize their chances of dealing blows that could turn the tide of battle, they stand to gain or lose everything.
May fortune be ever on your side."
