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!

All these spells

All of the spells going into the Magi Carta are being adapted from OGL sources.  There are a number of reasons why and I thought I'd share them with you here:

1) Gives HOW players an arsenal of spells to work with like never before
2) Spells are established, tested and are expected spells in fantasy gaming
3) Allows OGL system players/GM to transition to HOW more easily
4) Readily available and useable under OGL terms

In addition to spell lists, I'll provide the "subclass spell lists" should you be converting to, or decide to use subclasses in your HOW game. In addition I have a article on Spell books going in and a new magic type Cartomancy to add in as well. So far I have about 35 hours into the project and another 45 or so left.

Original spells will continue to be found in the pages of the Cauldron as well as In the Blades & Black Magic book so have no fear on that count!



  1. Splendid, a good idea for all the reasons given.

    1. Thanks Geordie, I think it will be a good resource.
