Coolness


1 person marked this as a favorite.

It's cool, just tossing it out there if you want. I think Owen has a good idea with tagging them Modern classes.


Yep, it's a Pathfinder modern class.


Modern Hero class

Give the Modern Hero a look over, it might help.

My condolences, I am very sorry for your loss.


Very cool!


There is a little bit of the MSRD Future material in the Hero Lab datasets, but we have stayed away from a future book because there is already some material out there and some in the works.

I'll look into Blood and Fists and see what is open. RPGObjects has some great stuff, but I have to see what they have open.

I just took a quick look and the mechanics seem to be open and I think I could get it to work in Hero Labs, but it will be a lot of work. BTW - again they have some very cool modern material. I wish they had more Hero Lab support, (as with all 3pp).


BTW - The download URL is www.gameroomcreations.com/Hero_Lab/GRC.hl

It's a very cool pdf with a lot of good material that would work great for a zombie game. Would you mind if I converted it to the Modern Path and post the pdf and Hero Lab dataset in the yahoo group?


Very cool!!! Congrats!!!


FYI - Updated the Modern Path Hero Lab data files. Let me know if there are any bugs.

For us, I think it was the Hero Lab support that I was able to do myself, otherwise it can be very expensive. But keep in mind we are not trying to make this into a profession, we are just wanted to get the ball rolling on a modern setting.

We had no experience or training in any part of what goes into making a pdf. So everything was "learn as you go" kind of thing. Art and layout was a big issue. First, we had a few friends try and make a few pieces, and it was ok, but not near enough for what is expected. We stayed away from "open domain" art because the rules can be a little tricky and we were just unsure. Eventually we found stock art, again each product's rules are different. I did some research on each product and e-mailed the owner to make sure it was cool to use. And it worked great and very inexpensive.

We have sold a good bit, but gave away much more and made everything open, (again we just wanted to get a basis for a modern setting started). But if you figure time spent on writing, layout, hero lab support, promoting (yet also a big one) and buying art, we are no where near close to making a profit. But that's cool with us because it is not our intent.

So short, it's a lot of work, but very little return in cash, but rewards in other areas.


Very very cool!!!


Also, a great place to send any Modern Path material is "Open Gaming Monthly"! Check them out.

https://www.facebook.com/OpenGamingMonthly


That would be great! Very cool


Very cool, I am glad you and your group had a good time and enjoyed the rules. It's always cool to hear feedback.


Very cool!


The Modern Path SRD is here: http://www.d20modernpf.com/


NP, I hope they help. Good luck!


The is very cool! An outstanding book!


Ok, all Modern Path material, (Heroes and Arcana), is now "Print on Demand" at RPGNow.

I still have to update the Hero Lab and d20Pro dataset to the updated Arcana rules. Going to take a little bit of time, but getting there.

The Modern Path - Arcana book is Print on Demand: https://www.createspace.com/3766812


I finally got around to updating the Modern Path: Arcana pdf. So you can re-download it from where you got it. Next is updating the Hero Lab d20pro files.


Follow the Modern Path to a walk on the magical side!

Arcana of the Modern World explores the different ways to incorporate the use of magic in a modern-style RPG genre. Building on the foundations of the Modern Path: Heroes of the Modern World. To compliment the Modern Hero class, there are new feats, traits, trainings, & difficulties; along with new magical Archetypes to customize the spell caster that you want to play!

A major update to the just about all the old material and added:

ARCANE OF THE FORBIDDEN - This setting is where magic is extremely rare and difficult to cast. This type of setting is typically what you would find in a modern “horror” setting.

ARCANE HEROES - This setting is where magic is more common and what is normally found in the core rules of a fantasy based system. This section expands on the archetypes found in “The Modern Path – Heroes of the Modern World”

ARCANE OF THE MIND - This setting is not so much of a magic setting but rather a system of unique mental powers called “Psychic” abilities. Very similar to the more powerful psionics found in many fantasy settings but adjusted to provide a modern approach.

ARCANE OF THE SPELLCRAFTER - This setting is an alternate spellcasting system where magic is broken down into its basic form and can be applied in almost any configuration the user wishes.

Also included is a free Hero Lab’s dataset that can be found in your Hero Lab’s software “Find Updates” section.

Finishing up the new updated arcana pdf, should be out next week. It needed a lot of work, but should be good to go. BTW - It'll be a free update.


Modern Path Hero Lab datasets updated. Added, many bug fixes, lots of new material including the updated NMP Modern Magic and the MSRD psionics renamed to psychics.

BTW - I am now working on the updates to the arcana book with new material and look.

Yea, that's the issue, it can be almost anything.


For us, I think our datasets is our main selling point. I do not have a background in writing, art, or programing (as many of yall have seen, lol). But, I was able to put together datasets when we released our material and it helped promote it.

To be fair, our datasets are free, but that is because I kind of enjoy putting them together. It's kind of like a puzzle and it also keeps me busy and out of trouble, lol.

But it is a lot of work and can be very frustrating without help. Again the HL community and HL staff are very willing to help you out and point you in the right direction.


We want to say good luck and happy to help out if you wish.

We kind ran into the same issues with classes and AC. Some people like "xyz" and dislike "abc". So we kind did both, a customizable base class and archetypes for the other classes. I even got the old prestige classes working in Hero Lab. So hopefully we had all the class options coved. But as you will see, it's difficult to cover everything.

We also started with DR for armor, but as it became an optional rule in the PDSRD, we just went back to the basic AC bonus and let the user decide what they want.

We also have had a lot of requests for a future setting, but really it's too much material to cover by us. I was looking at the Future MSRD the other day and it covers a lot and it might help you out a bit. I think it was a good set of "generic" rules for a future setting. I really like the PL levels to help keep things a bit organized.

Again, good luck and looking forward to it!


Yep, everything we do is also done with Hero Lab support. We are all kind in the same boat. With everyone's busy lives, Hero Lab, PCGen, d20Pro and other software saves a lot of time and keeps everyone on the same page. You are right, it is almost "a must have" today.

But it takes a lot of time and work, especially if you don't have a background in programing. So it tends not to be cost effective.

I am able to keep up our data files and I also try to include other's that are related to the setting. Because I know it's just not something everyone can afford to hire someone to do. You just kind of have to "DIY" when you can find the time. It's just not something many 3pp can afford or have time to do. So we all kind just have to help each other out when we can.

With the editor in HL, if you are doing a simple input with the editor, it's fairly strait forward and not too bad. But, if you are doing something that requires a "script", it can get tricky. What I do is look around for something already scripted that is similar and try to modify it to what I need. Also the HL forums has great support and many people that are willing to help out.

Also, there is great community support where people try to help out making datasets. It's at: http://www.d20pfsrd.com/extras/community-creations/hero-lab


BTW - I am getting ready to update this pdf. Is there anything yall want included, fixed, changed, etc.


lol, well we want to affordable for everyone and also a way for everyone to be able to use the rules. We hope it helps build support for the modern setting that we all can build on.


The dataset is free and the Modern Path SRD is also free.

Hero Lab:

You download Hero Lab and view and use it for free. You just can't save or print anything without a license.

Modern Path SRD: http://www.d20modernpf.com/

Also, I know they are working on a PCGen Hero Lab dataset and it's all free.


Very cool! Congrats!!


New Modern Path Hero Lab updates.

I got the old MSRD prestige classes working in the Modern Path dataset. So you can use them as archetypes for the various class or with the Modern Hero class or just as prestige classes.

A few new weapons, armor and gear and new "PL" material.

There is a check box to use the old MSRD material along with the Modern Path material. If you check that box, you get the MSRD skills, feats, rep and wealth.

Hopefully there are no load errors or bugs, but if so, just let me know.

The dataset is a free update within Hero Labs auto updater.
