izzy,

As others have said, you should definitely read it and compare it to some of the other books out there on the campaign.  This is an interesting topic, and one which has come up before.  Several years ago I decided to take a look at how Sword's book and Eric Jacobson's For Cause and for Country described the same situations in a multi-part blog entry.  I don't want to give away all that I found but it suffices to say that Sword seems to take the most anti-Hood approach he can at all times.
