Fools and Heroes World Background
Fools & Heroes has a rich background history developed over
many years of game play. However this background has never been
collected together in one place. The object of this page is to
collate information (of any sort) that relates to the
background and history of F&H.
The material here has come from many places, the now
defunct Legends board (of which I only kept a small number
of items), old copies of the Norham Herald and
before that Rubber Swords, numerous branch and guild newsletters and websites, not to mention the F&H noticeboards.
Some of this material is over 10 years
old and its unclear to me whether or not it is still
consistent with the various national and local campaigns.
I've tried to indicate the source of everything so you can
make up your minds. I've not made any attempt to discover
or contact the original authors of this material. If you
recognise anything as belonging to you please get in
touch. Similarly any material you may have relating to
the campaign world is happily received.
Submissions of any kind
are welcome. I will accept emails, floppies, photocopies or even originals (I promise faithfully to return them). Emails should be sent to email@example.com, hard copy can be given to me at fests and exec meetings or sent to my address (which your LO should have). You may also wish to subscribe to the FnH History Email List.
Those interested in the world background should also check out the F&H wiki
NB. These pages are permanently under construction.
