Other Worlds is a roleplaying game of heroic action and adventure for any genre. The game is driven by description: descriptions of characters, details of actions, and dramatic visualisations. Numbers and dice rolls are secondary to the action; in fact, you will find that in Other Worlds the rules serve to emphasise the story and increase the drama rather than getting in their way.

This book contains the following material:

  • A comprehensive worldbuilding procedure that the whole group gets to take part in
  • Over 100 ready-to-use character templates, from assassins to xenoarchaeologists and everything else in between
  • Detailed guidelines on creating your own cultural archetypes, professions, trademark powers, supporting characters, and adventure locations
  • A simple, elegant conflict resolution procedure that can handle any situation
  • Turn-based set piece rules to handle the more important conflicts of your story
  • A wealth of practical advice on how to get the most out of play, based on real experience at the games table
  • Quick-start genre packages for fantasy, horror, pirates, science fiction, superheroes, and the wild west

A really good improvement over Heroquest. It requires a lot of imagination from both GM and players as they cooperate to make characters and worlds. It does clear up my initial misgiving from the free preview, as it needs less than half the aspects [...]

This is the game I've been looking for. Other Worlds is a very adaptable and cinematic system. The focus is on making interesting stories that make sense. Conflict resolution is very elegant and shows you how to keep the story moving forward win or [...]

OW is a cinematic-style role playing game. It has good mechanics for describing abilities abstractly. The book is lengthy but easy to read and understand. It does handle a wide variety of game worlds. OW lives up to the hype. [...]

An awesome product. This book does, for me, what HeroWars/HeroQuest set out to a rules-medium Narrativist RPG where The Setting Matters. Building on Robin Laws' foundations, this iteration gets it right: it's smooth, infinitely expandable [...]

I've had a read through of Other Worlds, and in some ways I like what I see and in some ways I don't. There's a lot to this book, and I think it is well written and explained. I'm just not quite so sure that Mark managed to achieve the rules light system [...]

Livres Scannés
Ces livres électroniques ont été créés physiquement en scannant les originaux et en utilisant les images obtenues pour faire les pages pdf. Chaque page est passée par un programme de reconnaissance optique ces caractères (OCR) afin d'essayer de déchiffrer le texte imprimé. Le résultat de ce procédé OCR est situé de manière invisible derrière l'image de chaque page scannée, pour permettre d'utiliser des recherches de texte. Cependant, un texte dans un livre donné sur un fond graphique ou avec des fontes manuelles ne sera probablement pas reconnu par le programme OCR, et ne sera donc pas pris en compte dans les recherches. Aussi certains livres imposants peuvent être redimensionnés pour correspondre au système, et peuvent ne pas avoir cette fonctionnalité de recherche de texte. La plupart des livres les plus vieux et en rupture d'impression sont dans le format images scannées.
Format électronique original
Ces livres électroniques ont été créé à partir des versions électroniques, et permettent donc d'utiliser pleinement la fonction recherche. De plus, la taille de leur fichier tend à être plus petite que celle des livres scannés. La plupart des livres récents sont dans le format électronique original.
