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!

Hero's Progress

So here is a quick look at where we stand:

Magi Carta is about 85% complete
Cauldron #1 is about 60% complete

After those two I'd like to focus on creating a Barrow exploration sandbox sort of setting...but I will also continuing working on the HOW version of Lee Reynoldson's REDWALD.

In fact I have commissioned Luigi "Artkid" to start new illustrations, many of which will appear in the HOW version of Redwald!

I am geeked about Redwald for a couple reasons: 1) Lee's fantastic vision and writing 2) I love the Dark Ages 3) This HOW system lends itself to a gritty style of play.

Let me also share a very cool resource with you, Ancient Warfare and Medieval Warfare magazines.  These are outstanding resources if you enjoy not only learning about warfare in different era, but about the equipment and battles of the past!  Even better? Ancient Warfare magazine has an extensive free PODCAST library! These are great roundtable discussions of various topics found withing the magazine issues.

I really consider these outstanding resources which one could add any amount of fantasy elements too, or could be tweaked and fit into semi historical setting like Lee Reynoldson's Redwald.

The work continues...



  1. Very cool. I really like his stuff in spears of the dawn, and his black & white stuff in general. Sweet.

  2. Excited about this, as I've liked Luigi's b&w art since playing Under The Moons of Zoon, I like how bold and defined it is.

  3. nice. From the opposite end of the spectrum but the same period, have a look at Age of Arthur by Wordplay games. http://wordplaygames.co.uk/?page_id=32

    1. Thanks Tom for the tip, it looks fantastic!
