A new update of the Pathfinder files for Hero Lab is now available from the automatic updates mechanism in Hero Lab.

The classes in Occult Adventures are so complex that it's taking us a while to get them finished, but since we've passed the halfway point, we decided to give you all the classes that are finished, rather than waiting for the last ones before releasing it all.

This update adds the Medium, Mesmerist, Psychic, and Spiritualist classes from the Occult Adventures playtest. The Kineticist and Occultist are still being created, and we'll get those to you as soon as we can.

This update also has a few bug fixes.

A warning about this playtest material; once Occult Adventures itself is released (it's scheduled for a Gen Con 2015 release), all of the playtest material will become a part of our Occult Adventures package. For those who purchase this package once it's released, the characters you've created during the playtest will continue to work in Hero Lab, and you'll get access to the new content added in the full book (with the caveat that if something about the class changes between the playtest and the full version, there may be some changes you need to make - for example, if the class selects from among several abilities, and one of the options you selected for that slot is removed after the playtest, your character will have an unselected ability to choose, in order to replace the one that's no longer legal). If you do not purchase the Occult Adventures package, any levels of the playtest classes will be removed from any characters that used them. (As a note, this is the same way we handled the ACG, APG, UC, and UM playtest classes in Hero Lab).

Also, be aware that this is playtest material. We'll try to keep up with any official updates to the playtest as it proceeds, but we'll always be at least a few days behind. Also, if things about these classes change during the playtest period, existing characters using the class that changed may end up with errors.

When you activate Bonded Manifestation, do you get all the abilities you've earned so far (so an 8th level spiritualist would gain ectoplasmic shield and spirit touch), or would you have to choose one of those abilities to gain this time?

If you do have to choose only one, can you pay multiple times/round to gain multiple abilities at a time? If so, does each new ability require its own standard action to turn on, or can you turn on as many or as few as you want with the same action?

If you can use only one at a time, and you're not allowed to pay extra to get multiple abilities, and you wanted to change abilities, do you need to turn off one before starting another, or is there any efficiency bonus to switching the active power, as opposed to the normal free+standard to deactivate and then re-activate this ability?

My reading is that the "...gains a new way to use her bonded manifestation" phrasing means you can only use one at a time - you have to pick only one of the ways to use the ability at a time, but I wanted to make sure that was how this ability was intended to be used.

A new update of the Pathfinder files for Hero Lab is now available from the automatic updates mechanism within Hero Lab.

We've added the Monster Codex in this update - lots of new items, feats, and variant races to use to modify the monsters you'll be throwing at your players, so that you can still give them surprises with familiar monster races. This book also has nearly 200 NPCs - Monsters built with class levels, ready to drop into an encounter. This package is available for $9.99.

From Rite Publishing, we've added In the Company of Monsters, which contains six evocative player races and racial paragon classes that are sure to bring new and exciting encounters to your game. Includes new options for the Gargoyle, Giant, Ironborn, Minotaur, Restless Soul, and Wyrd races. This package is available for $9.99.

We've also added Ships of the Inner Sea to our existing Campaign Setting #13 package. This package is available for $4.99 already includes Undead Unleashed, and will get at least one more book from Paizo's Campaign Setting line in future releases (the exact book or books are still to be determined).

And although we're not finished, we didn't want to delay getting you all the portions of Advanced Class Origins that are finished. This has been added to the existing Player Companion #17 package, which is available for $4.99 and already contains Champions of Corruption, and will get another book from Paizo's Player Companion book in a future release. The portions of Advanced Class Origins that are finished are the Bloodrager, Investigator, Slayer, Swashbuckler, and Warpriest classes.

This update also includes player content from Adventure Path issue 87. We've also improved the CR calculations, so that Hero Lab now takes into account Key Classes when calculating CR.And we've redesigned the summary panels. There are now fewer of them, each is wider, and they can now scroll to show everything on them if there's not enough space.

I've gotten my subscription set up. Please do change the number of copies of each pathfinder pawns to 2 of each item.

I'm interested in adding a Pathfinder Pawns subscription, but I'd like to get two copies of everything, because I find that I often need multiples of many of the characters in order to have enough for the encounters I'm running.

Is this an option? I haven't been able to find any settings that let me set that up.

Inner Sea Gods will be its own package.

No "point buy" ability scores in Hero Lab as far as I can find. This seems like a pretty basic functionality that would be useful to many people. Makes me not want to purchase this product.

When you're first starting a new character, on the screen where you're choosing the books to use and the level to start at, one of the options is labeled "Pick/Roll Ability Scores" - click on that, and change it to "Point Buy: Standard Fantasy, 25", or one of the other point buy options.

If you want to modify an existing character, you can re-open that form by choosing Configure Hero from the Character menu.

A new update of the Pathfinder files for Hero Lab is now available from the automatic updates mechanism within Hero Lab.

This update adds a new feature to Hero Lab - the encounter builder. This lets you choose a target CR for your encounter (and if you've loaded the PCs into Hero Lab, shows you their Average Party Level, and how difficult this encounter is estimated to be for them). Then, look through all the NPC and monster portfolios stored in Hero Lab (currently over 4,000 of them if you own all the available Hero Lab packages), to find the ones you want to add to this encounter. We also offer a filter option, if you're looking for specific details in the monsters you're adding. Hero Lab will keep track of the XP that your encounter is worth so far, and how much is still left in the budget for the CR you've chosen. Once you're finished, you can add those enemies to Hero Lab, and use Hero Lab to keep track of the enemies' HP, conditions, the spells cast on them, etc.

This update also adds Champions of Balance as a free update for anyone with the Player Companion #14 package. This package already contains People of the Sands and Bastards of Golarion, and is available for $4.99.

For those of you with Rite Publishing's Secrets of Adventuring package, we've added more content to that package - Chapter 8 as a free update to that package.

If you don't have Secrets of Adventuring yet, do you feel like your Pathfinder game needs a refresh? Feel like you just need a new take on classes or the usual approach to your games? From the publisher that brought you 1001 Spells, Rite Publishing is now bringing “The Secrets of Adventuring” to your game! This book brings provides new choices for the usual Pathfinder character options, and also takes a new approach to classes. If your players aren’t interested in the hack and slash approach, provide them with the option of Tactical Archetypes! Rite Publishing has partnered with Hero Lab to release Chapters 1-6 this month, and more chapters will be released over the following months as free updates to anyone that has purchased the package. Refresh your game today with “The Secrets of Adventuring” for only $14.99!

This update also adds player content from Adventure Path issue #79 "The Half Dead City" and includes several bug fixes.

If you're not familiar with Hero Lab, please head over to the Hero Lab page of our website. There, you can download the program in demo mode and try it out. The only things you won't be able to do in demo mode are save and print (although you can see the print preview), so that you can give it a thorough test before you decide to purchase our program.

Another option if you'd like to try Hero Lab is our Hero Lab for the Pathfinder Beginner Box program. This program is free, and does support saving and printing, and allows you to make heroes and monsters from the Pathfinder Beginner Box.

Is there a tool that accepts Hero Builder as an input (standard format export, XML, API, etc) and does a decent job with the output? Is there a way for a report generating tool (Cognos, ODBC, etc) to reach inside of Hero Builder and grab the data it needs to do a decent print out?

Basically, is there any way to get under the covers of Hero Lab to create a third-party formatting tool?

In Hero Lab, click the view updates option at the top right. At the bottom right of that list, change the "Show All Updates" filter to "Show Custom Output Types", and that will give you a list of the custom character sheets that have been created by our users.

For information on creating your own, in the Help menu, choose "Hero Lab Manual", and then click the "Custom Output" link.

azhrei_fje, to find the DTD, open the Help menu in Hero Lab, and choose "Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Manual". The DTD is one of the last things, so scroll all the way through that file. Unfortunately, I'm not aware of anything like the old statblock you're asking for that already exists.

The sort of weapon grouping you're asking for is on our to-do list, but is not a project we've had a chance to implement yet. The closest you could come to this is to print off several copies of the statblock, each time with a different set of weapons equipped.

A new update of the Pathfinder files for Hero Lab is now available from the automatic updates mechanism within Hero Lab.

This update adds Magical Marketplace to the existing Player Companion #13 package. This package is available for $4.99, and already contains Blood of the Moon and Mythic Origins.

The update also adds the NPCs from the Inner Sea NPC Codex. These are available from the Import Stock Hero option in the Portfolio menu. Look through the list of portfolios for "Inner Sea NPC Codex". These are available to all users, but some of these NPCs may not be fully available unless you own all the books that were used to build them. For example, The Arclord of Nex NPC uses the Arclord of Nex prestige class, which is from Paths of Prestige.

Hero Lab's editor has been re-arranged somewhat. Now, there are several main tabs in the editor, with the individual tabs you're used to grouped within each of the main tabs. Since this change also lets us avoid a limit that we had reached in Hero Lab that restricted the number of editor tabs that could be shown at a time, we've taken the opportunity to go through our list of editor tabs to add, and add them.

The Managers, Rooms & Teams, and Buildings and Organizations sections of Ultimate Campaign's Chapter 2: Downtime have now been added. These are available to anyone with the Ultimate Campaign package.

We've also added several new spell adjustments, and this update includes several new bug fixes.

Thank you for reporting this. I've added it to our to-do list.

For future reference, here's our bug reporting form

Since we only check Paizo's forums every few days, you'll probably get a faster response posting bugs there than on the Paizo forums. Also, having the bugs all go to a single place makes it easier for us to organize our bug lists and make sure we don't miss anything.

The Advanced Class Guide Playtest is now available in Hero Lab!

A new update of the Pathfinder files for Hero Lab is now available from the automatic updates mechanism within Hero Lab.

The Advanced Class Guide Playtest is free to everyone with the Pathfinder system for Hero Lab, but only until Paizo publishes the Advanced Class Guide book (which is scheduled for a Gen Con 2014 release). Once that book becomes available, we'll be adding an Advanced Class Guide package to Hero Lab, and all of the playtest content will be moved into that package. If you purchase the package once it becomes available, any characters you created using the playtest material will continue to work (with the caveat that there may be changes between the playtest version of a class and the final version that may require some fixes). Those who do not purchase the ACG package once it becomes available will not be able to use any of the playtest content after that.

Journey to the Far East with the Heroes of the Jade Oath package, produced by Rite Publishing. With new skills like Fung Shui, as well as new feats and optional rules, your players will enjoy exploring this rich culture's history within this new Pathfinder setting. Enjoy new classes, archetypes, spells and more! This package is now available for $14.99.

The Free City of Zobeck package, produced by Kobold Press, lets you journey to the famous Crossroads City, compiled at last for everyone who loves noir adventure, clockwork characters, dwarves, and kobolds. A wealth of new feats, PC races, spells, equipment and archetypes are available for everyone who loves gritty and urban characters! This package includes content from Alleys of Zobeck, Streets of Zobeck, the Zobeck Gazetteer, and the Player's Guide to the Crossroads. This package is now available for $14.99.

Havoq, I apologize, but I can't figure out what the abbreviation "SLA", means, so I'm not sure what issue you're trying to report.

SLA = Spell-Like Ability.

There have recently been a slew of FAQ entries about SLAs, which you can find on the general FAQ for the core rulebook.

The key one is that spell-like abilities now satisfy pre-requisites for feats and, apparently, prestige classes. So, for example:

- Aasimars have Daylight, a 3rd-level arcane spell-like ability. With 3 levels of Rogue and 1 level of any arcane casting class, they can enter Arcane Trickster.

- Any gnome with the standard racial spell-like abilities qualifies for Arcane Strike, even if they lack an arcane casting class.

I've done some work in Hero Lab's editor writing up homebrew stuff for one of my campaigns. Based on that, I suspect that implementing this in HL is going to be a MAJOR pain.

Thank you for explaining the issue. I had seen that FAQ, but I had not realized the connection between that and more generic prereqs like "Able to cast 2nd level arcane spells" - I had only been thinking of it in terms of "ability to cast detect chaos, detect evil, detect good, detect law, or detect magic", which is something that we can't do yet - I knew that this FAQ meant that when we get that working, we heave to test for spell like abilities as well as castable spells.

Havoq, thanks for bringing this to my attention, and Tinalles, thanks for explaining the details. I've added this to our to-do list.

This update adds The Worldwound to the existing Campaign Setting #10 package. This package is available for $4.99, and already contains Fey Revisited, Chronicle of the Righteous, Dragons Unleashed, and Castles of the Inner Sea.

This update adds two new Player's Companion books to Hero Lab. The first is Dragonslayer's Handbook, which has been added to our Player Companion #11 package. This package is available for $4.99, and already contains Quests & Campaigns and Kobolds of Golarion. The second book is Pathfinder Society Primer, which is now the first book in the new Player's Companion #12 package. This package is also $4.99, and will get 1-2 other books from the player companion line, to be determined as Paizo publishes more books from that line.

This update also includes player content from adventure path #72, which wraps up the Reign of Winter adventure path, along with assorted bug fixes.

If you're not familiar with Hero Lab, please head over to the Hero Lab page of our website. There, you can download the program in demo mode and try it out. The only things you won't be able to do in demo mode are save and print (although you can see the print preview), so that you can give it a thorough test before you decide to purchase our program.

Another option if you'd like to try Hero Lab is our Hero Lab for the Pathfinder Beginner Box program. This program is free, and does support saving and printing, and allows you to make heroes and monsters from the Pathfinder Beginner Box.

The Monster Creator was added early this year as a free update for everyone who owned the Bestiary 1 package, but it looks like we forgot to update that page on our website to mention that new capability. I'll get that fixed.

In Hero Lab, if you just want to print out statblocks for the various monsters from the Bestiary, you can load that monster from the Portfolio menu...Import Stock Hero. If you want to customize these monsters, you can add class levels, templates, or additional HD from the Classes tab. Then, you can generate a statblock from the file menu...Output Active Hero Statblock.

If you're looking to create new monsters from scratch, we offer two options. The first is the Bestiary Monster Creator. We've implemented the Monster Creation guidelines (Bestiary 1 pgs. 290-293), so that as you choose a Type and change the HD and ability scores, and then add the monsters attacks, special abilities, etc., we calculate where your creature falls on table 1-1: Monster Statistics by CR, which will give you an idea of what CR to assign to your creature. This capability requires the Bestiary 1 package within Hero Lab.

If you've already finished designing your creature, you can use our integrated editor (Tools menu...Launch Editor) to enter the stats you've chosen, and create a new race that way. Then, you can customize it with classes and templates and generate a statblock the same way you'd handle one of the monsters you had imported from the stock portfolios.

This package already contains Fey Revisited and Chronicles of the Righteous. This package is available for $4.99.

This update also adds two books from Paizo's Player Companion line; Quests & Campaigns, and Kobolds of Golarion. This is a new package, and is available for $4.99. In a future update, a third Player Companion book will be added to this package (the exact book is still to be determined).

This update also updates the Pathfinder files to the 6th printing core rulebook, adds player content from adventure path #71, and includes several other bug fixes and improvements.

I just wanna know how you guys always manage to make the download exactly 97.7 Mb. Seriously! There's got to be so much variation in the updates, yet the download is always exactly the same! :)

More like buggy magic. I think the download's around 157MB right now, but there appears to be a bug that won't let the downloader report more than 97.7 MB.

On second thought, Chapter 4 isn't really all for the GM - it's for the entire group.

If you're playing a campaign with a kingdom, your PCs will be the ones with rulership positions in that kingdom, so you're making decisions about how the kingdom grows, and your characters are the ones dealing with the stories that arise about that kingdom, and if you go to war, your characters are probably out leading their armies, so you're rolling the dice for the mass combat units on your side of the battle.

So what does this have for PCs? So much of Ultimate Campaign seems to be kingdom building etc., which I guess can be new screens of some sort (seems more like Realm Works candidates), but for Joe I Manage My PC With This, what all do you get from UC in Hero Lab?

Chapter 1 is character history, traits, story feats, and drawbacks - entirely character based.

Chapter 2 is about putting together organizations and buildings, on a scale PCs can use.

Chapter 3 is new systems like contacts, reputation, and honor, that your GM might choose to use, and if so, Hero Lab can track them. It also has advice on roleplaying companions, roleplaying character retirement, etc.

Chapter 4 is kingdoms and mass combat, so that part is for GMs.

A new update of the Pathfinder files for Hero Lab is now available from the automatic updates mechanism within Hero Lab.

This update adds Ultimate Campaign to Hero Lab. This is available as a new package, for $9.99. A few sections of Ultimate Campaign, specifically Kingdoms, Buildings, Organizations, Rooms, & Managers are behind schedule and were not complete by release time. They'll be added in the next few weeks as free updates for everyone who owns the Ultimate Campaign package, but the rest of Ultimate Campaign is ready to go.

For those of you who will be GMing at PaizoCon, I'd like to remind you of something we announced in our newsletter last week - we'll be giving copies of Hero Lab to all GMs at PaizoCon, or for those who already own Hero Lab, we'll add the Ultimate Campaign package to your license. (Or, if you want to use Ultimate Campaign now and not wait, go ahead and get that package, and you can take a copy of Hero Lab to give to someone else).

This update adds a second new package, Campaign Setting #10, which begins with Fey Revisited and Chronicle of the Righteous, and will get 1-3 more books from Paizo's Campaign Setting line, added as Paizo publishes more of those. This package is available for $4.99.

This update also adds player content from Pathfinder #70, and includes several bug fixes and improvements.

Talk Paizo into writing a set of guidelines and parameters for it, like they wrote this set of monster building guidelines, and we'll implement it as a tool in Hero Lab.

When you're creating your character, set it as an NPC, and turn on the "Average HPs at New Levels" optional rule, then select the race "Bestiary Monster Creator" on the Background tab.

A new update for the Pathfinder files for Hero Lab is now available from the automatic updates mechanism within Hero Lab.

We've got a new book in this update, Player's Companion: Animal Archive. This is the first book in a new Player's Companion: Golarion #5 package. This package is available for $4.99, and will get 1-2 more player's companion books, to be announced as Paizo releases more of them.

We've added a new tool in this update - the Bestiary Monster Creator. This implements Appendix 1: Monster Creation from Bestiary 1 (pgs 290-293) as a set of tools and guidelines that will allow you to enter the statistics and abilities for a new monster, and then see how those compare to the suggested statistics for a monster of the CR you have chosen. This tool is a free update for any of our users who own the Bestiary 1 package. This package is available for $14.99, or, we have a Bestiary bundle - all three of our Bestiary packages for $29.99, which is about a $5 savings over buying them individually.

We've got 7 more of the classes from the NPC codex added in this update. We'll keep working at this until we have every NPC and iconic in that book available for use in Hero Lab. The NPC codex NPCs are free for all of our users.

Support for the Reign of Winter adventure path also begins in this update. We've got the player's guide for this adventure path and the player content from the first issue, #67.

A new update of the Pathfinder files for Hero Lab is now available from the automatic updates mechanism within Hero Lab. Note that this release requires yesterday's 4.1a update of Hero Lab itself.

We've begun adding the NPCs from the NPC Codex to Hero Lab as a free update for all our users. To use them, choose "Import Stock Hero" from the Character menu, and select the class you want to draw from. In this release, we've added 10 of the 11 core classes (everything but Wizard), and two of the prestige classes (Duelist and Pathfinder Chronicler). We'll be adding more classes in each update until we've made every NPC and iconic character in the NPC Codex available in Hero Lab.

This update adds People of the North as a free update for everyone who owns the Player's Companion: Golarion #4 package. This package is available for $4.99, and already contains Knights of the Inner Sea and Blood of Night.

We've also added Irrisen, Land of Eternal Winter as a free update for our Campaign Setting #9 package. This package is also available for $4.99 and already contains Artifacts & Legends, Inner Sea Bestiary, and Mystery Monsters Revisited.

Want more monsters to choose from when deciding what to throw at your players? How about more than 750 of them? Frog God Games has created a Hero Lab package for their massive Tome of Horrors, and they're selling it through Hero Lab's own purchase mechanisms. You can purchase it using the "Purchase Data File" option in the License menu for $29.99. They've even included their own artwork - from the Portfolio menu, choose "Import Stock Hero", and you'll find all the monsters from Tome of Horrors with the artwork from the book included.
