What is Heroes & Other Worlds?

Heroes & Other Worlds is a game of adventure inspired by Metagaming's classic Melee/Wizard/TFT system combined with inspiration from the Moldvay edited basic game. The rules are easy to learn and use standard six sided dice. The system is simple, sensible and flexible in the spirit of classic role playing games from the early 80's. Become a Hero, Other Worlds await!

Hello fellow heroes.  Luigi continues to work away on illustrations for Blades & Black Magic.  I continue to work on BBM as well as updating the core HOW rules which are the backbone for BBM.  I have had a few interesting emails recently regarding this project.

First, I am pleased to announce another artist is on board to provide additional illustrations for HOW.  Below is a sample first sketch from Urric and I think after seeing his work on deviant art you'll be as excited as I am to see what else he does!

In addition some other emails have asked about plans and progress with this project, and I though maybe others might be curious too:

1) Heroes & Other Worlds will be the core rules set.
2) Blades & Black Magic is a Sword & Sorcery setting/variant using the HOW rules as their basis.
3) I do plan on doing a programmed "life or death" adventure
4) Once HOW is out, I'd like to solicit player ideas, adventures, equipment, spell or magic item additions to be included in a free downloadable quarterly zine. By fans for fans!

So in a nutshell that's where we stand.  Any questions? Ask 'em if you got 'em!
