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!

Sneak Peek

Here is a preview of the back cover, over the weekend I added spell gems, cartomancy and Dermal magic.  I am now NOT adding anything else and am pulling it all together in a nice little book.  It's about 130 pages with no art and not including the spell index.   The PDF will not have any art, but will be $10, the physical book with cover and art will be $20.  I am going to get a print test done on the physical book before it all goes up for sale...but the Magi Carta is coming soon!

Please note the Heroes & Other Worlds rule book (print edition) is back up on Lulu!


  1. Curious about 2 things. To use a terry goodkin quote, do you have to get his permission?
    also, The magic the gathering lettering looks very similar, to magi carta. Have you checked that out with creative legal advisement?

    1. Hi Joel its a mock up not a finished nor published cover and the quote will not be a part of the final version.

      As to the font, it is not Magic the Gatherings font and is the same one used in Heroes and Otherworlds main book, on the cover and through out the mgame aterials. It is a free font.

      Thanks very much for your concern.

  2. Ssshhhwwww.... I love that font

    Plus i really like the quote. Maybe you can send him a note

    good job on the cover. it looks awesome

  3. you do not need permission to quote someone.
    the font is quite close to magic the gathering, might be best to avoid.
