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!

no worries, not dead

I had a couple private emails asking me "hey what's up? No posts lately? Iis the game dead or what?"

The answer is a resounding "No!"  Heroes & Other Worlds is very much alive, and despite my real job's best efforts to bury me this year, I remain fighting fit although quite weary.

 It's been a whirlwind of activity in the real world on the job in terms of travel and time commitment, and on the family front a number of bad news illnesses and surprises this year that have taken most of my personal time outside of work.  All in all,  it's really taken its toll this year.  Even so, all's well that ends well, and health concerns on the family front are blessedly on the mend and the majority of heavy lifting this year on the job front is complete, now its time to see if all the hard work pays off as we hope.

Yada, yada, yada...everyone's got problems Jack, so what about the game? Well glad you asked.

The HOW version of Lee Reynoldson's Raedwald  is still on track to be done and out this year. This is my one true goal to finish out lucky year 2013.  Beyond that, I do have two other projects already done and in the hopper for next year.  So more releases are coming for sure, no worries and thanks for your support!

I will have to ask for your further patience though, I do have ideas and a plan for 2014--but need to focus on completing Raedwald and getting that to you first, before saying more.  Stay tuned heroes...there is most assuredly more to come!

Alfred the Great, me not so much

I think I mentioned it before but two of my favorite reads are Ancient Warfare magazine and Medieval warfare magazine.

I subscribed to both and get PDF issues, then loot them for all sorts of great ideas.  So tonight they emailed and I downloaded the latest Medieval Warfare magazine.  This issue is perfect for those of you who dig a gritty and more Dark Ages style game.
Check it out for yourself here.

Now for the not so great part of the post.  I have more ideas than time in my life right now to do everything I want to get done.  Between work, travel, and other obligations, I am burning myself down.  So I had to make a hard choice, but I think its the right one...Cauldron #2 will have to wait as I focus my limited availble time on finishing the conversion of Lee Reynoldson's Raedwald.

Cauldron #2 will still come out, I just can't guarantee when, and Lee's Raedwald is so great, it's the one I would want to have first as a player too.

Thanks for your support and patience!
