Version 12.7 of the Pathfinder files for Hero Lab is now available!


Product Discussion


This month sees us still playing catchup with the paizo releases, as we finish out Heroes of the Street, and release Black Markets and Distant Shores. Now you can explore the exotic lands of Golarion or engage in less than legal commerce! Our monthly AP releases continue with the Dance of the Damned for Hell's rebels, and fans of Psionics should be glad to hear we now support both that system and Psychic Spell like abilities on the iPad app.

Unfortunately, one of the books for this month didn't meet our quality standards in time for this month's release. But fear not, fans of Occult Origins! You should see support for that book in November's release.

New Releases


  • Black Markets has been released as part of the Player's Companion #20 package!
  • Dance of the Damned, Chapter 3 of the Hell's Rebels Encounter Library package is now available for purchase! This includes all the encounters from the third issue of the AP, in an easy to search format and with paizo's art. The remaining issues of the AP will be released as updates to complete the package as they are available to the public. As with the Rise of the Runelords GM content, no additional packages are required to make use of these portfolios, even though they draw on races from the Bestiary and other sources!
  • Content from Distant Shores is now available as the fourth book in the Pathfinder Campaign Setting #14.
  • Content from the second half of Heroes of the Streets is now available!

Enhancements & Changes


  • The iPad should now be able to handle Psionics and Psychic Spell-like abilities!
  • A big thanks to frumple, who volunteered to tag the many many spells in pathfinder so that the correct version would show for spell like abilities when creating monster races.
  • Added the Armor Bonus Adjustment and Background Skill Points adjustments to the Adjust tab.
  • A FAQ that stated that Tiny or smaller creatures should use Dexterity instead of Strength for Climb and Swim checks has been implemented.

Bug Fixes

  • Blood rage was missing its target information.
  • The psychic detective wasn't replacing fast poisoning.
  • On the iPad, if the consolidated skills rule was active, you could still see normal skills on the play tab.
  • On the iPad, if a lot of adjustments were present on the Personal tab, they could hide other important things on the tab (like languages).

  • Daze, Mass was showing at both 4th and 5th level for several classes.
  • The Beast Rider and Wave Rider cavalier archetypes were not replacing the mount ability, meaning that they could be combined incorrectly with other archetypes.
  • The Shapeshift shaman hex was not allowing a wider array of forms as a character's shaman level increased.
  • Items melded into a polymorphed form were still counting as being held in a hand, which could interfere with the claw attacks of the assumed form.
  • Custom made weapons and armor with the Ghost Touch ability were reporting an error when equipped by incorporeal creatures.

  • Summon Nature's Ally VIII was accidentally removed from the Druid spell list when adding it to the Shaman (for recent errata).
  • Crane Riposte was not reducing the attack penalty for fighting defensively while in Crane Style to -1.
  • The Divine Protection, Dimensional Dervish, Divine Deception and Clan Seer feats had a typo in their descriptions.

  • Equipment sets which selected one handed weapons and set their equip state to two hands would lose iterative attacks.
  • Users who owned Pathfinder Unchained but not the Advanced Player's Guide could not select a race for their unchained eidolons.
  • The Books Used button on the journal tab was showing the information for every hero in the portfolio, rather than just the current hero and any minions he might possess.

  • Mythic Command Undead wasn't functioning correctly for a necromancer who selected Command Undead as their bonus feat.
  • Time Stutter was giving too many uses/day.
  • Psychic SLAs could be undercast to such a degree that the PE pool would actually increase!

Data File Authoring


  • Added the AlignSplOK tag group, which remove the normal limitations from alignment and deity alignment for cleric (and similar classes) spells. For example, if AlignSplOK.Evil is applied to the hero, you can normally cast spells with the Evil descriptor, even though you or your deity are good.

That is great.

However, once again, ALL third party files that are not sold from the lonewolf webstore have disapeared.
So that means that all Frog God games, Adventure a week, community packages are poof ! Gone and are not recognized anymore.

This happens about every new update and is frankly growing irritating. If some more permanent solution could be found to avoid this, that would be great.

This means a conflict was found between your addons and the current version of HL. This caused HL to go into safe mode and not load any addons.

I can confirm the Community Packs have no issues with v12.7 of Pathfinder. So this means one of the other addons you have is causing it. =(

The Pathfinder software keeps changing and the 3PP companies are not doing support/update to the files they released. In software development updates have to happen as the OS or tool is changed. In example look at all the changes LW has done to the HL .exe binary to make it be compatible with Windows 10. You don't yell at MS for the issue when HL .exe has problems in Win 10 so why complain to LW when a 3PP fails to keep its software up to date?

Contact the makers of the addons and ask for fixes. Unless this is done the real issue will never get solved. =(


I just checked after uploading the update and my Frog God Games files are still listed in the updates so they are still available.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

I have no idea why the Frog God stuff isn't done through the herolb site. I'm pretty annoyed as I have bought all of it, bought new computer and can't find the email with the link. I have frog God account and my files are not on it. That plus I bought fire s she bears and had to rely on Tim making the actual ships useble.

I'm with you, but I already tried to contact them, and this is so annoying.

I am due to start a Razor Coast campaign sometime next year. Should I just tell my players "sorry dudes your character sheeets are ******" every time there's a new update ?

The great point of hero lab is precisely that it is open to everything Paizo, and then more.

And I am already spending way too much time on RPG/software forums, so no I can't find some to go to Lonewolf's.

Well, sorry for the rant anyways.

BTW, thank you shadowchemosh for the work you are doing, as I have tested some of your creations.


Any word on how the Simple Monster Creation from Unchained is going
