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!

New Release!

Now available for Heroes & Other Worlds is J.D. Neal's The Chaotic Caves!

Mr. Neal's work is an homage to the classic B2 Keep on the Borderlands module from yesteryear.  There is a complete town to start your adventures in, a wilderness area to explore with multiple encounters and of course a cave system filled with various denizens and adventures!

I'd say there is actually more adventure in J.D. Neal's work than in the original!

If you are looking to start a campaign this is a great resource to start with, and it could be dropped into Robert Conley's Blackmarsh setting to start an entire campaign!

Note, some of the spells in Chaotic Caves require the Magi Carta or you could always just make it up! Use promo code SUPER20 this weekend to get 20% off all my stuff on Lulu.com (Not sure if that code works in all countries, sorry)


  1. Ordered. Looking forward to this. Any chance of either of the sequels getting the HOW conversion?

  2. Hey Chris, thanks for your support! What are the two sequels? I was considering Morgansfort potentially.

  3. I guess just one sequel.

  4. Thank Chris, that may need to be converted too!

  5. So, why are you selling it under "J.D. Neal" on Lulu? The way you currently have it on Lulu quotes "Copyright J.D. Neal" which could fool some people into thinking I have the copyright to it and hence can claim ownership.

    It is based on an OGL product; what that means is you can modify it, declare you own material as intellectual property (I forget which, its in the OGL), and put your name and copyright at the bottom of the list. Thus the derivative is your copyright.

    Using a title like "Chaotic Caves: HOW Edition" and "Based on the original by J.D. Neal" should satisfy anyone who is annoyed.

    1. Sorry for any confusion, that was not my intent at all. Just trying to give credit for your work.

      I changed things up and hope that alleviates any confusion or issues, thanks J.D.

  6. Indeed, you do not need my permission to make a derivative. It was nice when you asked, but that is what the OGL (as used here) is about: giving people permission without them having to ask. Or at least as I understand it.
