Detailed review

Branduan breaks down Brandon's new game Heroes & Other Worlds in detail.  A good and detailed review for those curious about my new fantasy RPG.

 Heroes and Other Worlds is, by today's standards a simple and rules light RPG that comes all-in-one in a handy booklet with a sample adventure and a sample dungeon included. I would heartily recommend it for someone wanting to replace their worn copies of Melee/Wizard/TFT or for someone wanting a simple game to try out on their kids that won't cost an arm and a leg yet could be played for years if they get to liking it. Likewise, though it may have some odd things for the current gamer to get used to, it's a good system in a small package for a reasonable price

Thank you for your support Lee!

You're welcome. TFT was one of the games I never played, but always wished I had. Just hope Lula can ship it before xmas.

Thanks Lee! Lulu UK apparently ships quickly so I hope you get it soon. I think a HOW/REDWAL mashup would be a beautiful thing.

Have you read the playtest pdf yet? What did you think?

Lee I absolutely LOVE Redwald! So much so I have already started converting it to make it useable in my home Heroes & Other Worlds game!

Fantastic material and very inspired and inspiring!
