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!

Anniversary #1...

of Heroes & Other Worlds!  I can't thank you enough: the good folks at Dark City Games, the players, the supporters, the commentators, the critics and the lurkers for giving this knucklehead's game some of your time and attention! THANK YOU!

As a thank you, for this weekend only, the core rules are on sale!  Get the PDF for $9.99 or the print book for $15! If you are new to Heroes & Other Worlds, now is your chance to give it a go! This special pricing will end by Monday so get after it!

Holy crap, it's been a busy, and productive year for Heroes & Other Worlds and I am happy to say year two looks to be another good year of releases kicking off with Lee Reynoldson's Raedwald in December!  Blades & Black Magic, which will have lots of player options and some alternative stuff, will be out in 2014 and there are two larger adventure modules coming out next year as well! Undoubtedly, another Cauldron or two will also roll out next year too!

So from me to you, thanks and, God willing, I hope we get to share many more of these!   I am cracking a beer, rolling some d6's and sharing an adventue with some friends this weekend to celebrate.

Good gaming to you!


  1. Happy Anniversary, my friend and well deserved - especially the beers ; )
    And here's to many more celebrations to come, may your lantern be forever bright and your sword never dull.

  2. I just want to say that I recently picked up a copy (darn it, I always miss those sales -- but I don't feel too bad, since good work should be rewarded whenever possible) of HOW and I'm very impressed and happy. I'm really glad someone is more or less keeping the old TFT trope alive, too -- it was always my favorite RPG, despite it's flaws (which your rules do much to correct). So a well deserved congratulations, and I'm eagerly awaiting your coming releases.... ;-)

  3. Congrats! Looking forward to all that;s coming in year 2.

  4. Appreciate the kind words and support all!

  5. Hope you have even more success with HOW this coming year.
