Adventurer Conqueror King System for Foundry VTT

This game system for Foundry Virtual Tabletop provides character sheet and game system support for the Adventurer Conqueror King System (ACKS).

This system provides mechanics and character sheet support, and features a compendium with Monsters, Items, Spells, Proficiencies and Abilities, and more, all to make the judge's job easier for running ACKS games on the Foundry VTT. Also included is a world map of the Auran Empire (the default setting of ACKS) - although the judge is free to ignore it. Every campaign is a law unto itself.

ACKS, like most B/X clones, is also broadly compatible with thousands of modules and other OSR content and rulesets with a minimum of conversion necessary.
