While me and my ex-fiancée have separated and gone each in his or her own way (in a friendly manner; things didn't work out for us as a couple BUT we still see each other as good friends; she is now in London starting a Master's Degree in Genetics in a few weeks), I am still interested in this setting.

Furthermore, people in my regular (D&D 3.5E) gaming group have expressed interest in playing ACKS once we finish our current campaign (in a few months), and in this setting. So I have to work on it more seriously now.

Here is the Lizardman Gladiator class for this campaign - a modified version of the Thrassian Gladiator using my latest Lizardman racial template:

Autarch has agreed to publish the Barbarian Conqueror King setting and rules (as well as the Sword & Sorcery Monsters) as a supplement to the Adventurer Conqueror King System (ACKS). We signed the agreement yesterday!

Time to start writing!

Congratulations to you!

I've been following your writings and I'm looking forward to seeing the final product(s).

Hello everyone! I'm very excited to have golan2072 working on Barbarian Conqueror King.

The inspiration for his work arose out of the thread on "Upcoming Products", in which we saw a passion among our community for the Heroic Fantasy supplement and the Auran Empire campaign supplement. Therefore we knew that this type of product would be well-received.

Both BCK and the Heroic Fantasy supplement will follow a similar format - new rules for the genre; new character classes, races, magic, monsters; and a gazetteer with light-weight campaign setting. (I may call the Heroic Fantasy supplement "Hero Conqueror King"...or we might call BCK something like ACKS: Swords and Sorcery Companion.

Perhaps it would be possible to stick to the "low middle high" naming theme, with the names changing to fit the milieu? For golan2072's work, something like "Barbarian, Marauder, Chieftain" or "Barbarian, Champion, Warlord" might fit the theme.

Barbarian, Reaver, Warlord? Mainly for the Howard callback:

“Hither came Conan, the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandaled feet.”

A Dragon Incarnate racial template for this setting (a Dragon Incarnate class will appear in the BCK book):

Great for a Barbarian leader. The class will have Dragon Incarnate 2 + Fighting 2 + HD 2 and will be a strong sword-mage with a lot of charisma.

Golan, is BCK going to interact at all with the Heroic Fantasy rules? I'm just curious how much overlap (if any) there might be between supplements.

I'd wait for a more official reply from Alex, but BCK is somewhat more gonzo/pulp/horror sword & sorcery fantasy, while the (excellent) Heroic Fantasy rules are somewhat closer to the Tolkien and Howard baseline. Also, BCK is built with the basic assumptions of the ACKS core in mind, while Heroic Fantasy has a (great) new system of magic.

are there any active Autarchs besides Alex at this point? I mean, he works hard enough that it wouldn't be uncalled for to refer to him in plurals, but I was under the impression all the other Autarchs are no longer active.

Alex is certainly "the Man," but, as I understand it, there are others actively involved.

Is it Tavis? There was a podcast a few months ago with Alex and a partner-in-crime. Plus, I think it was Tavis posting on rpg.net.

By the way, great things are being worked on in regard to this setting... Working on really cool stuff in collaboration of the Autarchs! It might take some time, but will DEFINITELY be worth the wait.

I need that book. I'm not spamming, just reminding I did not give up waiting for it.
