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 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.

Hello Mathias,

Do you know if Inner Sea Gods will be the last one include in Campaign Setting # 11 or it will have it's onw package due to its size?

Thank you

Hardcovers are usually Free, or their own package typically. For instance, Ultimate Campaign, Gamemastery Guide and the NPC Codex are all free. But there is not as much crunch in there.

So to answer your question.. I do not have one other then It will likely be $14.99 or $9.99 As it does have some PRC's and other spells and magic items in it that it will count for some crunch.

But this is a guess and I could be far far from wrong.

Inner Sea Gods will be its own package.
