Axioms Compendium 1-8

Selected Option:

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
first eight issues of AXIOMS into an easy-to-use reference. It includes:

  • Issue #1 - Magic. Eldritch secrets are revealed.
  • Issue #2 - Beastmen. The savage swords of chaos, are unleashed.
  • Issue #3 - Economics. He who has the gold, makes the rules!
  • Issue #4 - War. Let he who seeks peace prepare for war.
  • Issue #5 - Magic II. Some magic is minor, some magic is monstrous, and some
  • is not magical at all.
  • Issue #6 - Fractal. Because when you zoom in further on an area of game design,
  • you find that when you zoom in further on an area of game design.
  • Issue #7 - Magic III. The art and science of magic is plumbed yet further.
  • Issue #8 - Randomness. The oracular power of dice is revealed.

The compendium includes revised rules for strongholds and domains, senatorial domains,  mercantile ventures, and mass combat, and new rules for elite troops, gladiatorial schools, shaded magic, spellcaster type creation, beastmen custom classes, wilderness stocking tables, 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! To learn more, visit

The printing error on the spine has been corrected and the book is now available again. Thank you for your patience!

Purchased this and, while the interior is beautiful, the spine reads "Capital of the Borderlands" instead of Axioms Compendium. :)

Indeed, it does, that's a pity.

Ouch. I thought I had gotten that error corrected. :(
Please contact me at if you'd like a refund or a replacement code for the book.

I've turned off the POD while I order a new proof. I'll turn it back on as soon as I get a corrected copy.

No trouble, Alex, it is a small thing. Thanks for the offer, though.

This would make a fantastic PoD.

I agree.

Hi Autarch - Any plans to make POD? I'm old school, and not a big fan of pdfs.

Alexander M January 15, 2020 4:29 pm UTC
Yes, we do plan to do so, but we are having some DTRPG/LSI submission issues at the moment. It's also lead to our Capital of the Borderlands POD being hung up. So I would say it'll be 3-4+ weeks til its ready.

Fantastic! Count me in for a PoD/PDF combo. :)
I've got all of the individual issues, so I'm in no hurry.

Jason D January 16, 2020 1:21 am UTC
That is great news. I'll get the combo too when it's ready.

The information on this states 14 pages? That seems a bit small...
Customer avatar
Alexander M January 15, 2020 6:53 am UTC
That's definitely wrong. I'll get that updated. Thanks for letting me know.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
