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!

Another art preview!

Sometimes words ruin the awesome, so Luigi's work speaks for itself!

Here is a sneak preview of two well known illustrations re-imagined by Luigi (Artkid) just for BBM!  I am damn excited about this project and Artkid's work provides great inspiration and life to BBM.  Back to the scriptorium.

Grim Venture

AFTER finishing the BBM rules, the first adventure I plan on releasing is a riff on DEATH TEST.  Basically I plan on making it Death Test set hundreds of years later....the world has moved on.  I may also create a limited edition bagged kit with the module included, maybe this is the only way to get the adventure?  Still time to figure all of that out.

I also am pleased to say Artkid (Luigi) has accepted a commission for another 10 illustrations!  So including the cover that's 16 unique and original illustrations from Artkid for BBM!  It is all fantastic and I can't wait to release the full rules so his art can blow you away too!

Back to the scriptorium...

Basic plus...

One of the items I plan on adding to the B&B rules are a list of combat actions.  Originally I did not want to do this as it seems to mean players have to choose an action to act.  But in play, I've found my list can help rookie players come up with ideas.  So much of what goes into B&B will be optional additions.  I look at HOW as a preview of the basic rules, but B&B will add on to that with rules like: Each melee attack made expends 1 EN, when EN reaches 0, you must add 1 die to ANY further tests.  A player regains full EN with a meal, rest and sleep. A meal adds 3 EN, each hour of rest adds 2 EN.

These and other rules will be all inclusive in the manual, but under the notation of "Iron Rules" or "Deeper Cuts" or some such titles through the rules.  These can be easily added into the core rules or left out.  I plan on adding these as an extra option at the end of each section of the applicable rules: character creation, combat and magic.

Slave to the power

Simply swamped with work and I have no free time to focus on gaming materials currently.  I have some terrific illustration work commissioned from Artkid to use in the Blades & Black Magic rules and when time permits I hope to pick up writing again.  Sorry for the delays! Image by Eduardo Cardenas
