Introducing Pathfinder Class Packs for Hero Lab

Monday, September 7, 2015

Getting started with Hero Lab just got less expensive for players, making it easy to discover for yourself why Hero Lab is Paizo's official, in-house standard for character creation. You can now unlock your favorite classes in Hero Lab with new "Class Packs"—everything from seven essential rulebooks, all for only $29.99!

Each Class Pack unlocks 3-4 Pathfinder classes and includes everything from seven of the most popular Pathfinder rulebooks (see below). For only $29.99, simply choose your favorite Class Pack and start creating characters with the software that just won its third ENnie award. To unlock more classes, you can pick up additional Class Packs for only $6.99 apiece!

How Do Class Packs Work?

  • Create and manage characters from the 3-4 classes unlocked by each Class Pack. For example, if you select the Druid Class Pack, you'll unlock the Druid, Oracle, Shaman, and Spiritualist classes, allowing you to build characters from those four classes in Hero Lab.
  • Class Packs include everything from seven essential rulebooks: the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook, Advanced Player's Guide, Ultimate Combat, Ultimate Magic, Advanced Class Guide, Occult Adventures, and Ultimate Intrigue (when it releases in spring 2016.) All archetypes for unlocked classes are included, as well as all feats, spells, gear, optional rules, and everything else from those rulebooks—it's all you need to create characters with your unlocked classes.
  • Further add-ons like Advanced Race Guide, the Summon Monster creature package, and Player Companion packages can be readily integrated with Class Packs. They are purchased and behave just like they do in Hero Lab today.
  • Hero Lab users who already use another game system, like Shadowrun or Mutants & Masterminds, can get started with their first Class Pack for only $20! Simply add the Pathfinder Class Pack option you want to your Hero Lab license through our website.
  • For our existing Pathfinder users, if you feel that Class Packs are a better fit for your style, you can switch to the new Class Packs for free! Be sure to review all the details before converting, as it's a one-way, one-time option. The conversion option is also a limited time offer, so don't miss out!

While the info above covers the most important details about Class Packs, we know that many prospective users will have questions and/or want more information. We've provided extensive details on our website, plus we've assembled a comprehensive FAQ. So check out those links to our website learn more!

Now that I've shared this great news, I'm heading back to prep for my own Pathfinder adventure this weekend. To my fellow gamers out there, may the dice be with you!

This is pretty cool.

I have a few friends who could benefit from the ease of Hero Lab (and who have jealously watched my wife and I run our characters from our iPads) but have hesitated to adopt it due to the price point for obtaining all the materials they would want to work with.

I'll be pointing this out to them.

I've been using Hero Lab for the D20 license before Pathfinder was introduced, once it became officially licensed for Pathfinder I immediately purchased Pathfinder data sets and have continued to do so for each new release.

Hero Lab has an enormous amount of data, Paizo and third party publishers too, and continues to grow and develop in useful features.

This is a great way to dip your toes into the Hero Lab software, without breaking the bank.


I must say that I don't own HeroLab, but this is a cool idea nonetheless and makes me consider..!
