(Adventurer, Conqueror, King!)
I wanted this game from the first momment I heard about it, and so when I had heard the PDF, and pre-orders where up I rushed online and ordered my copy. But wait, I get the Pre-Order all done and no downloadlink for my PDF...GGGGRRRR...no problem I email the guys at Autarch in in momments I receive an email from the CEO himself, stating he's working on it, SUPRISE I receive my Download link! +1 for great customer service!
I want my hardcopy now, but it looks like I need to wait...oh well I'll print out my PDF, an hour later I'm digging in to this meaty book-o-crunch. Yeah!
Likes and Dislikes
The Art is rocking it's got this Conan feel to it, I love the Fighter pic, makes me want to have a character like that.
The Racial classes is something I have been toying with in Ganth so thats a huge plus for me, I really want to use ACKs for Ganth on some levels, BUT thats somethin I'll save for my dislikes!
WHAT the piss a Easter Egg! Yes at the back of the book a Dwimmermount preveiw, just for me, Dwimmermount by James over at Grognardia, the guy that through his blog got me back to my old school roots, and is it true Dwimmermount for ACKs?!? Now this is for me and it will be what I will be using ACKs for, whole parcel.
Domain Rules! I love them this is something I will be doing in Ganth and using to build Ganth I love it!
I want H-ACKs! (Hyborian-Adventuer Conqueror King)
Now my dislikes, look I am just not catching on to the watered down 3.X character creation...it just isn't something I want in Ganth. So Ganth stays at its core 1e/Osric/LL 'nuff said.
Now I know some don't like the "Get me ten troll eyes for this spell/item/craft" bit, But I like it. It seems right to me and give a reason for low levels to have a use in a game that caters to high level play. So I can ignore the MMO feel it has. At one point back in the day in the Monster Maunal Gary gave us the reasons to collect body parts, it seems the guys at Autarch expanded that idea.
So their you go! Buy this game, and pick it a aprt it's proof that the OSR is surging in the face of, dah dah dah 5e!
