[Hero Lab] Version 8.5 of the Pathfinder files for Hero Lab is now available! Magical Marketplace! Inner Sea NPC Codex!


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 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.

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.

Anybody else have trouble getting the update downloaded and installed on an iPad? My app keeps crashing midway through.

Thank you for the update!!


I really like the way you reorgnanized the tabs in the editor. It looks and feels cleaner, simpler, and user-friendly. I hope you will continue to look at other ways ways to enhance the UI of Hero Lab. Thanks.

If you haven't already you might want to ask this on the Lone Wolf forums. They are there more often then here for obvious reasons.

I wish you luck!
