Autarch LLC is a partnership of game-creators committed to releasing quality tabletop gaming products. Comprised of gamers, writers, artists and publishers from New York City to Durham, NC, Autarch collectively loves forging new experiences and reveling in old masterpieces. Individually, the partners have published gaming website The Escapist, written RPG supplements for Wizards of the Coast and Goodman Games, and devised miniature war games, but the Adventurer Conqueror King System™ was Autarch’s first adventure together.
Our name derives from the Greek word
autarkhos, meaning self-governing, and reflects our love of classical history. We think it’s an apt name for a creator-owned company, whose highest mandate is to produce things that are pleasing to ourselves. In modern times autarchy has acquired the connotation of despotism, but we have no desire to lord over anyone. On the contrary, we hope that we can best serve you by pursuing our own desires. We are gamers and fans like you, and like the Autarch in Gene Wolfe’s “Book of the New Sun”, we contain a multitude of diverse experiences. We hope that the wide range of things we’re enthusiastic about, and our desire to learn about cool new stuff all the time, mean that you will be excited by some of the same things we are.
