Today has been a real roller coaster of a day as friends of mine have been messaging me, talking to me, etc about this 1.1 OGL business. And then Autarch today dropped the Axioms Compendium Volume 2: 9 - 16. What's so important about this Axiom Compendium; "Created with the support of hundreds of generous patrons, AXIOMS is a quarterly magazine devoted to the Adventurer Conqueror King System. This exclusive compendium compiles the ninth through sixteenth issues of AXIOMS into an easy-to-use reference. It includes:
- Issue #9 - All Creatures Great and Small
- Issue #10 - Macabre Monsters, Twisted Temples, and Grim Guardians
- Issue #11 - The Empyrean and the Chthonic.
- Issue #12 - The Art of Thievery.
- Issue #13 - Machinery to the Max.
- Issue #14 - Codex and Scroll.
- Issue #15 - Ancient Ways.
- Issue #16 - Wounds and Woe.
Not only does the Axioms Compendium Volume 2: 9 - 16 collect all of the pass issues of Axiom but it adds a ton of content to the Adventurer, Conqueror, King Rpg. And this includes updates for creating your own fantasy races, a ton of new monsters and more all done in a very tidy one hundred & sixty two pages. And for ACK's its much needed update of the material. The adventure “The Fetid Crypt of Anatu the Defiler” is a corker and very well done. Easily dragged & dropped into your own ACK's campaign.
The forces of Law get a boast with the Dwarven technology & lore with the Machinery to the Max article. And we get a full on look at lore & research in 'Ancient Ways' while the ACK's thief get's his due in The Art of Thievery. If your an ACK's DM the the Axioms Compendium Volume 2: 9 - 16 is a must have!
