By this ACKS He Rules! Chuck Dixon’s Conan Gets RPB Sourcebook


Autarch LLC is pleased to announce that it has partnered with the legendary comics writer Chuck Dixon, creator of Bane and the Birds of Prey, to develop an RPG sourcebook set in the world of Chuck Dixon’s Conan, his bestselling series of sword & sorcery novels that builds on the public domain works of Robert E. Howard. 


The sourcebook will use Autarch’s upcoming Adventurer Conqueror King System Imperial Imprint (ACKS II), the second edition of its acclaimed role-playing game. 


“Conan is the archetype of the adventurer who becomes a king,” said lead designer Alexander Macris. “He doesn’t just ‘level up’ — he takes power and rules. Only ACKS II  can offer an RPG experience with the depth and breadth to advance from savage swordsman to conqueror who treads the jeweled thrones of the earth under your sandaled feet.”



ACKS II is Kickstarting on Tuesday, October 24 as a three-volume set of pu leather hardbacks. All backers of ACKS II will be invited to participate in the development and playtesting of the Chuck Dixons’ Conan sourcebook, with early access to rules drafts, session reports, and art.

I'm one opinionated, based geek. I try to steer this tiny ship and can often be heard monthly on the Comic Book Page Previews Spotlight podcast with several fellow "comic book nerds." Follow me on Twitter @ChrisBraly. My preferred adjectives are brilliant/beautiful.
