[Hero Lab] Version 7.13 of the Pathfinder files for Hero Lab is now available! Ultimate Campaign!


Product Discussion

Silver Crusade Lone Wolf Development

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.

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.


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.

Silver Crusade Lone Wolf Development

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.

Sorry about that, looks like we missed that one. I'll get that added for the next update.


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! :)

Black magic, my mother used to say...:)

Awesome! I wasn't sure if I was clicking something wrong when setting up available systems/options/rules.

A bugfix update, 7.15, is now available. This fixes the "Favored Enemy: Choose an Option" and Hex: Choose an Option" bugs, adds the missing Reckless trait, along with several other fixes.

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.
