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 unsheathed!

Well I am happy to say my own copies arrived and considering all the work time and effort that went into it, I am very happy to see the results. 

 I talked a bit about making a "BLADES boxed set"--and using some bits and pieces here is what mine looks like. If you make your own I'd love to see it!
I checked and my measurements were correct, 2 BLADES books fit in the box which means BLADES (and when completed) BLACK MAGIC books will BOTH fit in the same box with dice!!  The pencils and note cards will not, but still--it will make a crazy super fine portable boxed set!

With hard work and persistence, a dream (however goofy or small) can come true. Don't ever let anyone tell you different!

I am going to share a poignant bit from my reading of Letters from a Stoic by Seneca. I read this at lunch today and though written thousands of years ago, it still rings true.  When asked why he writes when he know the masses will not read or care, Seneca quotes Epicurus: "I write this not for the many, but for you; each of us is enough of an audience for the other."

I want to say thank you for letting me write for you, whomever you are and where ever you are-thank you.


  1. I really like the idea of a boxed set and that looks nifty.

    I like that quote. I've never been a very philosophical person but I do seem to connect the most with Epicurus.

  2. Got 2 blades books for my group, will buy more later. Very interested in the box. Let us know. Thanks for youbhard work.

  3. Thanks very much for the support Bill, I hope your group digs the game!!

  4. Man, I'd forgotten you were going to release this on the 31st, and I barely managed to score the LULU Print sale; got in literally in the last ten minutes! I'm REALLY looking forward to reading our first new content in quite some time, and can hardly wait to see the Black Magic book hit the street. In the meantime, I know you're as busy as a one-armed paper hanger and I am looking forward to seeing what Frostcrawl looks like! Keep up the great work!

  5. I think someone asked somewhere but I didn't see the answer. Do you have an eta on Black Magic?
