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!

Creature Feature: Gillman

 Gillman (Territorial)
DX:9/12 swimming
MV3/9 swim
DM 1d6+1 claw
TR: Pouch or Lair

The Gillmen are an ancient aquatic race of humanoid standing between 5 and 6 feet tall.  Primarily found in tropical coastal or deep river, jungle environments. No one has seen a female Gillmen and there is speculation there may not be any as the Gillmen are know to raid human settlements and steal females.  Gillmen are extremely protective of their territory and are known to fixate on a female until they are killed or the female is taken out of their territory. The gillmen prefer to lure pursuers back into the water where they are more agile and apt to have a superior advantage to humans. 

Adventure hook: The characters are asked to help in the strange disappearance of women harvesting muscles near the old sea caves.  Their baskets are found left behind with scattered shells and strange large wet foot prints.


  1. They could move about like a shoal, keeping together, in combat all picking on the same nearest foe.

    1. Outstanding idea Geordie. That is how they could get next to small fishing vessels or river ferry craft and attack them! Brilliant!
