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!

    I converted my Pocket Full of Peril #10 adventure into a full Heroes & Other Worlds adventure! It features the cartographic wizardry of A.J. Stone of Stonewerks blog fame!

    Part of my gamer OCD issues is the need to have printed copies. So I "arted up" the free download and you can buy it on Lulu.com.  It is at a special into price of $6.99 as future issues will be $10.  If you want or need an "arted up" issue that sits and fits right along with the HOW rules book, it is available to you!

    2012 was a great year for me personally as I completed a dream of mine to publish the fantasy game I always wished I had found.  I am very grateful for the kind words and support from so many people!

    Heroes & Other Worlds is off to a great start and I have many plans for 2013! I hope you will come along for the adventure!

    I wish you and yours a very Happy New Year!

  4. Nice work. Great idea to include the basic rules.

  5. I just checked out Cauldron #0 - outstanding work! The basic rules was a nice touch and it made me think of when Dragon was good and the Space Gamer, Fantasy Gamer, and the old White Dward were all around.

    1. Thank you very much Charlie. That is very high praise, and I hope in the long term to continue to improve and make the Cauldron something worth looking forward to.

  6. My print copy arrived today - neat little thing it is :)

    1. Thanks Geordie, I just got my print copies too! Looking forward to a better and more varied issue #1!
