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!

Cauldron #1 complete!

Well fellow Heroes, it is COMPLETE!  Man what a chore to get over the finish line today!

Well it would not have been possible with out the outstanding contributions (in alphabetical order) of:

T.M. Arnold

E.P. Donahue

Garrison James

A.J. Stone

Sean Wills

and of course my lovely wife!

Note the Book & PDF are both full art, thus the prices are fairly close to one another.  Use code JUNEBOOKS13 to get 20% off.

Also my wife's cover awesomeness is ONLY available if you buy the physical book.  It's worth it because she is going to get a nice bouquet of flowers from the proceeds! Check out that cover majesty, hell yeah she deserves it!

You can buy either (or both) editions of Cauldron #1 at lulu.com or just click the Heroes & Other Worlds cover image in the top of the bar to your right.

  1. That strontium hue is an excellent use of saturation...My eyes are drawn straight to it........Wait.....I think I turned that exact shade while watching the Pens lose to the Bruins. Aaaaahhhh!

  2. My Cauldron came over the weekend. It's very cool, the adventures are well done.

    1. Glad it arrived, still waiting for mine! A lot of super talented folks made some great adventures and they made this 1st issue better than I could have hoped!

      I am already looking forward to #2!

  3. I'd love to get this and H&OW. Last time I tried UK lulu said the H&OW file was corrupt and cancelled my order. Has that been fixed?

    1. Hello MB, something happened at LULU a few months ago, I uploaded a fresh file and its printed fine ever since. Thank very much for your interest and support!
