Pathfinder RPG Packages

Pathfinder Players and GMs, Hero Lab has many options for your game! Find what you’re looking for below:

Two Ways to Get Started: Choosing an Entry Path

Pathfinder players have two choices when purchasing Hero Lab: the Rulebook Entry Path OR the Class Pack Entry Path.

Each entry path offers a different approach to access the material from seven essential rulebooks: Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook, Advanced Player’s Guide, Ultimate Combat, Ultimate Magic, Advanced Class Guide, Occult Adventures, and Ultimate Intrigue (upon release in spring 2016). Both entry paths feature the same initial price of $29.99.

The Rulebook Entry Path is the way we’ve traditionally made Hero Lab available to gamers. You start with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook and add individual rulebook packages to your license. This is typically the best entry path for GMs and players who plan to purchase all seven essential rulebooks in the near future.

The Class Pack Entry Path is an alternative, cost-effective way of getting started with Hero Lab. This entry path is tailored to players, providing access to all the material from the seven essential Pathfinder rulebooks for only a limited number of classes. This news post contains extensive details about how you can unlock your favorite classes through Class Packs.

Whether you choose the Rulebook Entry Path or Class Pack Entry Path, all Pathfinder users receive the following bonus content, including:

  • Feats, items, prestige classes and other player content from the Pathfinder Adventure Paths;
  • Complete content from the Pathfinder Inner Sea World Guide;
  • All NPCs from the NPC Codex, Inner Sea NPC Codex, Gamemastery Guide, NPC Guide, Rival Guide, and NPC Codex.

The Rulebook Entry Path and Class Pack Entry Path each have a number of add-on packages unique to the specific model, allowing you to purchase additional rulebook content or unlock further classes, respectively. There are also numerous other general add-on packages available to both entry paths, and all may be purchased at our online store.

Not sure if you should choose the Rulebook Entry Path or the Class Pack Entry Path? More details on each are presented below. Answers to all remaining questions should be found on our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Pathfinder Rulebook Entry Path

Selecting this entry path allows you to access content from the seven essential Pathfinder rulebooks on a book-by-book basis. You’ll start with content from the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook, plus the bonus content listed above. Content from the six remaining essential rulebooks is purchased via separate packages, with all the options from each rulebook (classes, archetypes, feats, etc.) becoming available when the rulebook add-on is purchased.

To access content from the additional essential rulebooks, you can purchase the Rulebook Entry Path Packages in any combination below:

  • Advanced Player’s Guide – new classes, alternate racial traits, archetypes, feats, spells, and more from the Advanced Player’s Guide. ($9.99)

Pathfinder Class Pack Entry Path

By choosing this option, you’ll receive one initial Pathfinder Class Pack, unlocking 3-4 classes and all material from the seven essential Pathfinder rulebooks. All archetypes for unlocked classes are included, as well as all feats, spells, gear, optional rules, and everything else from those rulebooks – everything you need to create characters with your unlocked classes.
