I know. I know. “Lone Wolf.” “Doesn’t that mean you just do your work on your own?” Not really. The makers of HeroLab are looking to add a new Web UI/Front-End App Developer to their team. Considering I think that computers are magic boxes filled with gnomes and sprites, I think I’m out when it comes for that job. But maybe you’d be able to do it.
Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!
… is what day it is.
At least for me as I’m typing this, anyway.
But “fun with time zones” will have to wait, because right now we’ve got a couple of bite-sized stories to give you in our Sunday Snippets feature. So let’s get to it.
Today we have: Age of Tyrants Funds, Khurasan releases 1980s Motor Rifles support weapons, Another World Miniatures Releases Selene Redux Mini, Hero Lab Launches D&D 5th Edition SRD, and Polyversal Kickstarter now EU Friendly.
These days, everything is going digital. That’s not a complaint, really. I know some people, myself included, prefer having an actual book in their hands, rather than read something on a screen, but I don’t begrudge digital innovations and will use them when necessary (I mean, I could be going door-to-door telling you about all this gaming news every day, but I don’t think it’d work out quite so well). Well, Paizo and Lone Wolf Development have teamed up to bring Pathfinder to the Realm Works RPG Management Software System.
So, I mentioned previously that I’m gonna be starting a new RPG adventure this weekend. We’re getting all new characters. All that fun stuff. One of the guys in our group, though, has always had trouble with just his rogue he was playing. Even after a year+ of playing him, even only doing so ever couple months, he still wasn’t entirely sure how his main attack worked in terms of the bonus it got when attacking. Yeah, I know. So if he had problems with that, you can only imagine what else might’ve been wrong with his character sheet. Thankfully, there’s things like Hero Lab. And currently, Lone Wolf Development is having a sale on it over in their webshop.
Lone Wolf Development has released their Pathfinder Classes Packs for Hero Lab. Need some help creating your character? Want to make sure you know all the options available to you? Don’t want to carry around a bunch of supplements? Hero Lab is here to help.
Tomorrow, Syrinscape and Lone Wolf Development will be teaming up to bring you a unique online resource to help improve your RPG game sessions. Colen McAlister (lead developer for Hero Lab) and Benjamin Loomes (creator of Syrinscape) will be conducting a Google hangout and are inviting all GMs who wish to get more out of their Pathfinder experiences. The main focus will be integrating their various products to help run the games and create an immersive environment for your games.
Hero Lab helps you out with your Pathfinder games by giving you the information you need right at your fingertips. No more flipping through books or pamphlets, when just a push of a button or a swipe of a finger, you have that information on hand on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. Now they bring one of Pathfinder’s most famous adventures to their program with the release of Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition. The pack comes with pre-built NPCs (complete with their gear, spells, abilities, and so forth), fully customizable encounters, automatic integration with previous Pathfinder adventures and supplements, and the ability to print out reference sheets for NPCs and monsters. Check out some screenshots below the cut.

Plus they have pre-created NPCs that you can print out and have ready for the session. If you have characters made in Hero Lab, this will integrate them right on in just fine.

But for digital space nothing beats Hero Lab and its ability to easily customize and upgrade your character during game play…we can’t wait for this brilliant support to be available. “
Lone Wolf Development has launched a Kickstarter for their Realm Works RPG Campaign tools array. Could your RPG group run more smoothly?
From the campaign:
How many times have you struggled to keep your tabletop RPG campaigns completely organized? Have you ever lost track of what your players have and haven’t learned? Is “real-life” limiting the time you have to prepare for games? Do you waste precious time during games searching for details from previous sessions, some of which occurred months or even years ago? These challenges, and others, are what we set out to solve with Realm Works.
