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!

Up All Night

Okay my final edit is DONE...but the love of my life will double check my bleary eyed edits with yet another pass through.

I know keep saying ALMOST THERE...but I truly mean it every time I say it, I am almost done.

To celebrate (besides going to bed finally) the little skull logo is one you can use on your blog if you so choose to show your support/playing of this little game .  I am also going to have a couple t-shirts made up with the logo! If someone else besides me & my wife want to one, let me know and I can put them up on zazzle or something for purchase.

Now to print a copy for my wife to edit/review with her coffee.

Driver 8 taking a break!

UPDATE: Wife has gone through it again...which means I get to start fixing again after dinner.  Goal is still releasing it into the wild on Sunday.


  1. I'm intrigued, despite having never played TFT or Melee & Wizard.

    Will there be a preview available for those of us considering purchase? I'd like to get a sense of what the game is about beyond the intro on your other blog.

    1. Hi Andrew, first thanks very much for your interest! At some point I will create a free sample download but its not going to be for a couple weeks.

      In the meantime to get an idea of they system and how it is played, I can highly recommend you check out Dark City Game and their free rules download as an immediate starting point. While there are differences in HOW such as a 4th attribute for Heroes (Endurance). The basic nuts and bolts of game play are perfectly aligned. You can download their quick play rules for us with their adventure for free at
