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!

Happy New Year...let's go exploring!

I wanted to wish you a very Happy New Year and to say thank you for your support and for playing Heroes & Other Worlds!

To say thanks, and in case you are thinking of starting your own campaign in the new year, I uploaded a new free adventure! It is a Heroes & Other Worlds edition of the OGL intro adventure The Vile Worm.

For 2014, I have another two BIG projects on the table for Heroes & Other Worlds: The Tome of Terrors (the monster book for Heroes & Other Worlds) and Blades & Black Magic, an assortment of more game options, Wilderness/Hexploration stuff and some new spells. 

In addition there are two adventure books done already so my hope is to have a quarterly releases this year. In addition I want to get Cauldron #2 out and maybe #3 out as well.  Oh the ambition is there, but I am unsure if the time will be!

One other note, my Sci-Fi game, Rogue Space, is getting a refresh and should be availble this weekend for purchase on Lulu.  It is a completely different system than H&OW, but adheres to the simple to pick up and play philosophy I strive for in all my games.

Thanks again for a great 2013 and cheers to you and yours for a very happy 2014!


  1. Just to ask "this" isn't where I found The Witches Hound by any chance, is it?

    Playing it now and can't remember where I picked it up at!


    Got Cauldron #0 ;)

    1. Sorry I am not sure about a witch hound?

    2. Nothing important, "5." I found a little "home made" module/scenario on line, "The Witch's Hound" and can't remember where.

      I've gotten a couple of things from you, so I asked. ;)

    3. Nope it is from gnome stew...looks good!


  2. I still miss Calvin and Hobbes.

    1. I miss seeing new C&H strips as well, but damn what a golden age we had with Gary Larson's Far Side and Bill Watterson's Calvin & Hobbes! I feel blessed and lucky that I got to experience it and take away a lot of great memories from it. I also appreciate that Bill Watterson never licensed his creations into animated movies and other goods. Sure it would have been great to have my own stuffed Hobbes, but I respect and appreciate that his work and philosophy for his work was never really about that.

      Thanks for sharing Calvin & Hobbes with us Mr. Watterson wherever you are!

  3. I have not seen this documentary, but I read that it's very cool.


    1. I heard about this and want to see it! Thanks for the link Chris!
