It's been a long time coming, but I'm overjoyed to announce that the Kickstarter for the Player's Companion for the Adventurer Conqueror King System is now complete! Here is the notification from our partner Game Salute that the hardcover books which were the last of the rewards have all been sent out to backers:
If you missed out on the Player's Companion Kickstarter, it's available for sale now that all the backers have theirs. You can get the PDF from us right away through Game Salute; it'll be available at Autarch's DriveThruRPG page as soon as they finish their product approval process. And if you order the hardback book from us, you'll get the PDF for immediate download while the book is sent to you to arrive at the same time it's available in stores.
If you were a backer of the Player's Companion, make sure you've downloaded the extra files (following the instructions in the most recent backers-only updates) that are our way of saying thank you for your patience with our delays on this Kickstarter. It's my hope these will substantially enhance your enjoyment of the Player's Companion. We plan to make 'em available to non-backers in a forthcoming annual round-up of the year's best additions to the Adventurer Conqueror King System.
We're eager to hear about how the Player's Companion will be used at your gaming table, and to answer any questions that might come up in play. The Autarch forums have a section devoted to the Player's Companion as well as an Ask the Autarchs area. You're also invited to the Adventurer Conqueror King community on G+, which is a great way to find players and share ideas.
Although we're very proud to release the Player's Companion into the wild, we won't be resting on our laurels. Autarch is gearing up to Kickstart its next project, Domains at War, which covers all aspects of mass combat from Campaigns to Battles in ACKS and its fellow offshoots of the original fantasy roleplaying game. And on a personal level, my wife and I are expecting to add twin boys to our family tomorrow which means I won't be doing any kind of resting at all!
In order not to spam you with messages from Kickstarter, I'll combine baby pictures and the annoucement of the Domains at War launch into one final update. In the meantime, please don't hesitate to leave a comment, write us at email@example.com, or call me at +1 (917) 749-6938 if there is any problem with your rewards on the Player's Companion.
