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!

Things & Stuff

What a busy week.  Spent most of it traveling then 4 hours sleep, a shower and back in the office.  All of it worth it though as I finally (after 6 years) got to spend Valentines day with my wife and had today off to spend with her. No work on Magi Carta on my end, but while I was traveling my wife almost finished the cover and has started the cover of Cauldron #1! Clearly I need to get my stuff together and get cracking again on spells!

A personal recommendation from me to you, DUNGEONSTONE!  I have, as ducats allowed, built up quite a bit of dungeon bits.  It is very hardy resin, and damn easy to paint!  I just ordered some additional bits and really need to keep painting up what I have already...man I need more hours in the day!  Anyway, it's good solid material and at some point, maybe when I am play testing Grim Venture, I'll post some picks of it in action.

A bit about Grim Venture.  Not sure if you've played the video game Dark Souls (see my take here) or know much about it, but it is very unforgiving.  While I do not plan on making it Grim Venture an unplayable, room 1 your dead experience, I do plan on making it tough.  Bad or dumb decisions will kill.  Exploration and searching will be important.  In all honesty its probably a 2014 project at this point, but I look forward to making it happen and my wife's already done the cover, so I am on the hook to make it happen.

Game on!


  1. All sounds good, I didn't know anything about Dark Souls before you posted about it. I've had loads of work on this week too (and man-flu) but my little infinite dungeon is almost done.
