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!

Internet = hexcrawl

It is interesting to me how one can sort of stumble upon hidden treasure using your Google machines to wander Al Gore's World Wide Internets.  It's kind of like having your own digital hexcrawl complete with trolls!

Taking my morning constitutional around the interwebs  I stumbled upon quite a little treasure trove of fantastic material and resources.  I stumbled upon a wonderful island based hexcrawl!  Not too big, and not too small...kind of the perfect starting point for adventures really, welcome to The Isles of Mist.

Wait...there is even more goodness to be discovered! You see Tad has compiled a Hexcrawl resource page that provides a wonderful collection of links to develop and understand the idea and creation of hexcrawls!  Check it out on his Ars Phantasia site. Lots of great material and thoughts on gaming as well as outstanding cartography!  Enjoy it!


  1. Thanks so much for the shout-out Fenway5 (Christopher?), I'm glad you found the adventure and the hexcrawl resources page useful. BTW, this was the first I've seen of your blog and I look forward to exploring it as well in the next week.


    1. Hey Tad, fantastic work my friend its just amazing stuff!! Wish I had half that talent! I Can't wait to see what you do next!
