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!

Currently I am working on the bestiary included in the HOW rules. There will be about 70 creatures included and I am trying to write a brief but descriptive entry for each.  Currently (with no art) the booklet is 36 pages.  When I add a treasure generator and flesh out basic adventure creation it should be 48 pages or so.  Add art and is probably 64 pages all told.  A smallish but perfect little complete RPG game.

Blades & Black Magic will provide additional spells, creatures, treasures and a simple setting.  HOW will be required to use BBM.

The work continues...


  1. Looking forward to this. I'm on a sword & sorcery reading kick lately and thus am looking forward to Blades & Black Magic. Cool, alliterative name too. I thought those had been exhausted. Wrong again.

    1. Thanks Narmer. HOW is first then BBM art is in progress for both as is writing...now if I only had more hours in the day to work on it! :)

    2. There was a scene in the book Starship Troopers where the troopers are on leave on a planet that has a 25 hour day. They loved it cause they could get enough sleep and still have an extra hour of recreation. Maybe you should check that planet out. =)

  2. Ha! I think it would just lead to more time in the office! :)
