ACKS Genasi


Here are 4 very basic elemental-touched human races for ACKS. Make your own classes with them! They all follow a basic pattern of one spell-like ability and one secondary power.


Grey Matter-inspired classes for ACKS

Here are three classes I made for ACKS which were inspired by the Grey¬†Matter retroclone. Grey Matter is a retroclone by the person behind Taxidermic Owlbear ( which also hosts the giant comprehensive list of retroclones. Grey Matter is pretty cool in that it is a simple OD&D-alike with a billion options for races, classes, spells, monsters, etc. So it’s a 400+ page rulebook that’s all simple options rather than complex rules.

Anyway, I took inspiration from three classes in Grey Matter – the Bishop (warlord/cleric), Inquisitor (assassin/cleric), and Mystic (mage/cleric) – to build the classes here. The Mystic name is obviously already taken for ACKS, and a multiclass mage/cleric is already done in one way via the Nobiran Wonderworker, so I decided to turn my class into a human wonderworker for those who don’t want to use the Nobiran for whatever reason. Hope you enjoy.
