February 2017 Newsletter

January was a busy month for Lone Wolf teams. We released nine new Pathfinder packages, several 5th Edition packages, multiple updates to both Hero Lab and Realm Works, and even managed to fit in an update for Mutants & Masterminds! That makes for a lot to cover this month and a little bit of something for everyone!

Our Realm Works team members have been extremely busy the last month bringing you features, bug fixes, and paving the way for the Content Market! If you’ve been anxiously awaiting import and export capability, the wait is over! You can read all about the new Realm Works features in our news post titled Imports, Exports &  More.

Also, if you’re curious how import/export works, or want to learn about other features, we recommend you check out our brand new article series titled Designer’s Diary. These helpful articles will be an ongoing series that aid you in making the most of your Realm works content. Be sure to bookmark the page and check back often as more articles are coming soon, including article #4 which explores how the various game-specific content structures work! If you’re more of a visual person, you can watch the many user created videos in our Realm Works in Action forum to help you become a pro at creating realms!


Bug Fixes and Free Content: 
We’ve nearly finished exterminating all the bugs in our import/export update, once that’s finished we’ll be delivering the promised free content! We are striving to ensure everyone can enjoy We Be Goblins, Isle of Kandril, and Streets of Zobeck the week of Feb 13th. As soon as these are out, and all the content we have available for Kickstarter backers is delivered, our focus will be launching the Content Market as soon as possible! Wave one of the content Market has already been determined and we are hard at work ensuring that everything possible is released at launch.

Is there something you’d like to see in the next wave?  Take our brief survey to ensure it makes the cut!

Content Market: The Content Market will be here before you know it and you’ll be able to immerse yourself in content from a variety of game systems. As we’ve planned since the Kickstarter, Pathfinder, System Neutral, Savage Worlds, and even the 5th Edition SRD will be a part of our initial offerings. Kickstarter backers who have been with us since the beginning can expect to receive any items from the initial launch they’re entitled to for free, with others being delivered as they’re released. While we will be starting out small in wave one, remember, more content is on its way!

As we outlined in our previous post on Content Market pricing, most package prices have already been set. With items such as Halls of the Mountain King being priced at only $24.99 for the entire 160 page book or system neutral content as low as $4.99. For official Pathfinder users, it’s a bit more complex as the PDF is conveniently included in the price. However, if you already own the PDF from Paizo directly, measures have been put into place to ensure that you won’t have to buy it again!

Submissions: Are you working on a submission for our upcoming Community Content program? The Realm Works Content Sharing Guidelines are available now! With numerous tips and layout advice you’ll want to make yourself familiar with this before you submit content for approval.
