Review & Commentary On Axioms Compendium Volume 2: 9 - 16 From Autarch For Adventurer,Conqueror, King Rpg

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.

:Among the features within are “The Fetid Crypt of Anatu the Defiler”, an ACKS adventure; 9 new monsters, including faeries, nymphs, and nosferatu; 5 new character classes, including the dread priestesses of Nasga and the Nosferatu scion; 2 new playable races, the Nosferatu and Katripol; rules for creating custom fantasy races; rules for creating dwarven machines; and updates to the mechanics for hijinks, mortal wounds, and more.
While designed for use with ACKS, content in Axioms is compatible with any d20-based fantasy RPG built on the OGL. Axioms is made possible through the support of our patrons, who receive early access to the articles on a month-by-month basis. If you're already a patron, thanks for your support!

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!
