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!

Stay on Target...

Thanks to Pastor Beau polishing up the rules through editing, my goal is to finish the final pass of editing and then lay out for HOW this weekend.

Assuming that gets done, I'd order a print test booklet by Tuesday (11/4) and do a final review before putting it up for sale on Lulu, Most likely that would be sometime the week of 11/12.

There will be 2 options: Full Rules (Player & Referee sections) and just the Player's portion.  I decided most Referees will want both in one book anyway so there is no reason to split the referee portion out separately. If I am wrong, let me know.

I have also considered putting the Players rules or maybe the whole game, into a Pocket book format (standard shelf Paper book ) but it would end up begin just as expensive as the digest so I am not sure that really needs to happen.

Holy crap, I can't believe this is almost done!


  1. Red 5. Where's Porkins! I can't spot him!

    I'm looking forward to this!!! (I know, I've said that before but I think it is worth repeating.)

  2. I certainly hope it merits your good wishes and excitement. It is a "basic rules" and will be further expanded in Blades & Black Magic with hexplore/wilderness charts, more creatures, character options, and spells.

    Cauldron magazine will be the joint effort by me and anyone else who would like to submit add-ons, articles, and adventures to the HOW system. Lofty goals, but HOW needs to come out first, and it is on the way.
