  • [Paizo] Hero Lab Partners with Pathfinder RPG

    Hero Lab Now Only Officially Licensed Character Management Tool for the Pathfinder RPG

    July 2, 2010 (SAN JOSE, Calif. and REDMOND, Wash.) – Lone Wolf Development announced today that it has signed a licensing agreement with Paizo Publishing for Hero Lab to be the only officially licensed character management tool for the bestselling Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. As part of the agreement, Hero Lab will not only include content from the Core Rulebook and Bestiary, but also from the soon to be released Advanced Players Guide, in addition to all of the setting specific elements from Pathfinder products published by Paizo.

    "In the last year Pathfinder has really taken the industry by storm, and those of us here at Lone Wolf are delighted to provide a valuable service to such a great product," said Lone Wolf President Rob Bowes. "Paizo is one of the companies that just gets it. They understand that software tools like Hero Lab are critical to the success of games published in the 21st century and by lowering the barrier to entry, Hero Lab makes it easier than ever for Pathfinder to attract new players, and for existing players to maximize their gaming experience."

    "We've been watching the development of Hero Lab for years, and it’s been amazing to see how the Lone Wolf team has adapted the tool for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game," said Paizo Publisher Erik Mona. "I can't wait to use Hero Lab to help me design cool characters for use in my own campaigns as well as in future Paizo books and adventures."

    Released in 2006, the ENnie award-winning Hero Lab includes an easy-to-use, intuitive interface integrated with a versatile database engine. Users can add their own custom content to existing Pathfinder and/or other roleplaying games. Players can even create data files for entirely new game systems. The combination of powerful, user-friendly software and the diverse RPGs it supports make Hero Lab one of the most successful character management tools ever released.

    The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game is a fully supported tabletop RPG, with regularly released adventure modules, sourcebooks on the fantastic world of Golarion, and complete campaigns in the form of Pathfinder Adventure Paths like Kingmaker and The Serpent’s Skull. The Pathfinder RPG is also compatible with the 3.5 edition of the world’s oldest roleplaying game.

      This was excellent news to hear. Hero Lab is such a quality product and people have been looking for a Pathfinder RPG character creator for a while. Plus this doesn't prevent someone else from making theirs compatible with the Pathfinder RPG so all the better!
