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!

Hey you have got some questions and I have answers!

Q) Where is the physical print book on Lulu?
A) Lulu had a printing problem and they took it down temporarily until they can figure out the issue. Should be back up in a few days.

Q) How many pages is the Magi Carta?
A) before la out its about 120, and there are some bits left to add in so without art, I am goign to say around 130pgs. With art? around 140-145 I think. It should be ready to roll at the end of this month

Q) When is Cauldron #1 coming out?
A) At this point I have to say June.

Q) Anymore Hexcrawls coming?
A) Absolutely! I have a hexcrawl Barrowlands project in the plotting stages and am happy to say AJ Stone of Stonewerks fame is handling the Barrow Cartography!

Q) What else is coming?
A) REDWALD! A Dark Ages setting by Lee Reynoldson which he has graciously allowed me to convert into a HOW "Otherworld" book!  This is going to be a great and gritty setting perfect for the HOW system!

Q) is that it?
A)NOPE-I still have plans for Blades & Black Magic which will have hexcrawl/outdoor adventure rules as well as some other neat bits...AND Grim Venture is an adventure homage to the old Death Test adventures!

LOTS of plans and lots of work to do, its just finding "free time" to get them all done and out to you!  I very much appreciate your interest, patience, and support for HOW!


  1. I would like one of each right now please!

  2. Redwald sounds very interesting. Will the magic system be changed to rep a mythic dark age setting?

    Obviously the Magi Carta is a pickup!

    1. Yes indeed the magic system in Redwald is different...I need to finish Magi Carta and Cauldron #1 before I can focus 100% on the HOW version of Redwald. Thanks for your support!
