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!

As I work on a spooky themed Cauldron #2 It's really fleshing out into its own book of sorts.

Currently a spooky mini hex crawl, a slew of spooky strange spells and two mini adventures comprise the contents.

I am considering making this whole thing a one time a year only, Halloween, purchase.

And part of me is even considering making it a one time only purchase on Halloween 2013--physical copies only.

Not sure yet where it will net out, but as I work away on it that's where I am.

By the way if you know Latin can you tell me which might be correct?

Ater Vade Mecum or
Vade Mecum Ater?



  1. I was taught to put the verb last, and subject, if needed first.
    So, Mecum Ater Vade.

    Although, in theory, all three are correct depending on what you are trying to emphasize.

    1. Thanks SAROE for your help, much appreciated!

  2. Vade Mecum is used to refer to a reference book which one brings with them.

  3. Did Cauldron 2 come out and I missed it? Or is it still to come? I really want the witch magic spells and equipment for a character.

    1. Hi Andrew, you did not miss it...it has yet to surface. My real job and family issues precluded my completion on the time line I wanted. Raedwald has a unique spin on an Anglo-Saxon style Wicce so that may provide some good ideas! Cauldron #2 is still coming, just later than I had planned. Sorry for the delay, but thank you for your support and patience.
