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!

BLADES re-org?

Max Dunbar

I had my wife read through the current draft of BLADES and she pointed out that many of the setting options (like culture) are a bit confusing in terms of their placement in the rules. If it is an alternate way of creating/playing/using the rules--should it be better put in an appendix or she suggested culled from BLADES entirely and put into a separate overall setting/ gazetteer book. I am mulling it over as it important to listen to someone separated from the work. It is true, sometimes you cannot see the forest for the trees.

In your opinion are the core combat rules and adventuring guide good as a book? Is a separate gazetteer with setting character creation a good thing?

Let me know your thoughts and opinions, they are valued.


  1. You should listen to wisdom. Your wife. I personally like having the rules adv. And rules guide by themselves, and create my own world. A separate Gazette also would give your more room to explain things more clearly. I like the way she thinks, tell her thinks and never let her go. She is a keeper.

  2. Thanks Bill--I am leaning this direction and es indeed she is most definitely a keeper sir!
