In our last newsletter, we had uncovered a nasty issue that delayed the major Realm Works update. Thankfully, everyone was very supportive and understanding while we got the bug fixed, and we greatly appreciate that! More importantly, everyone’s patience paid off!
Earlier this month, the huge update finally rolled out – a critical milestone towards the release of the Content Market and web-based access. This new version introduces features like default fonts and custom styles, true names, and extensive control over Realm Work’s automatic link detection. The most complex piece involves the conversion of everyone’s content from rich text, a primarily desktop-focused format, to HTML. This clears the path for users to seamlessly access their content on both the desktop and web.
Before you grab this big update, please read the full details on our website. There are some very important details to know about upgrading, and it’s best to go in fully informed. The list of enhancements is long, and we want everyone to be aware of them all.
One smaller feature we want to highlight is the third-party application integration. Syrinscape, a popular sound app, was the first company to take advantage of this feature! Head here for details on how to integrate Syrinscape within Realm Works.
Looking forward to the Content Market? Stay tuned for a big Realm Works announcement later this month that’s sure to make some waves. If you haven’t already, you may want to like Realm Works on Facebook, follow @lonewolfdevel on Twitter, and/or follow Lone Wolf Development on Google+.
This week has been an eventful one for Pathfinder fans, with huge sales and new releases! In case you missed the news, you can save anywhere from 20-40% off 30 different Pathfinder deals in our Hero Lab sale, live now. This sale ends Sunday, November 8th, so don’t miss these limited-time discounts.
And now, you can grab our latest Pathfinder release, which includes Black Markets, the second half of Heroes of the Streets, Distant Shores, and the latest chapter of the Hell’s Rebels Adventure Path. We’ve even included all the Pathfinder Society pregenerated characters, thanks to the assistance of some dedicated Venture Officers.
For info on all the releases this month, check out the updates below.
Black Markets and Heroes of the Streets
Sometimes the good guys need to break the law. Do you need to find an item or spell for a quest that can’t be bought in any reputable establishment? Find the shops and markets that operate off the grid in the latest Player Companion – Black Markets. This new book joins Dirty Tactics Toolbox, as well as the rest of Heroes of the Streets, in the Player Companion #20 bundle, now available for only $4.99!
If you’re waiting on the second Player Companion for October, Occult Origins, it will be starting off the Player Companion #21 bundle next month.
Explore beyond the Inner Sea region of Golarion, and learn about the other societies and cultures on the edge of the world. Fill your adventure with new cities, gods, magic, and adventure sites, with the latest Campaign Setting – Distant Shores. This new book joins Inner Sea Monster Codex, Hell Unleashed, and Occult Bestiary, finishing off the Campaign Setting #14 bundle, now available for only $4.99.
Dance of the Damned – Hell’s Rebels Chapter 3
The Silver Ravens have made progress in their fight against Lord-Mayor Barzillai Thrune and his forces. Now the party and their allies must join forces with the elves and the free city of Vyre in an attempt to cut him off from his trade routes. Will they succeed, or will they fail to bring these supporters to their cause? Find out in Chapter 3 of the Hell’s Rebels Adventure Path – Dance of the Damned.
Game Masters can now run the latest chapter of this AP using Hero Lab. All the encounters from Dance of the Damned have been added to the Hell’s Rebels add-on. If you haven’t picked up this Adventure Path package, grab it today for only $24.99.
Players can also pick up all the player content from this book as a part of our free update, available now!
From time to time, it’s helpful to have a pregenerated character. Maybe you’re new to Pathfinder Society, or you didn’t have time to whip up a new character for a one-shot game that your friend is hosting. It’s times like this when the Pathfinder Society Pregenerated Characters can be a useful resource for all Pathfinder players.
Thanks to the hard work of six Venture Officers, these pregenerated characters were created and added as a free resource for all Hero Lab users with the Pathfinder game system. You can find them within Hero Lab by following these four easy steps:
- Open the Pathfinder game system within Hero Lab
- Select “Open File” from the Configure Your Hero pop-up
- Open the “Pathfinder Society Pregenerated Characters” folder within the Pathfinder portfolios folder
- Choose your character!
These pregens will be very useful for Pathfinder players, so thank you again to Andreas Persson, Dave Frahm, Jester Deren, John Grisby, Phillip Goettsch, and Preston Hudson for helping us make these available to the community!
You’ll also find a number of other changes and bug fixes in this update. A full list of the changes are included on our forums. To keep up with the latest Hero Lab news, make sure to “like” Hero Lab on Facebook, “follow” @lonewolfdevel on Twitter, and “follow” Lone Wolf Development on Google+.
Runners will soon have the option to enhance their bodies with new cyberware, bioware, nanotech, and all manner of augmentations with Chrome Flesh. Releasing in the next two weeks for only $9.99, this book will provide players with dozens of upgrades to make their characters stronger, faster, and more of a threat to evil corporations, insect spirits, rogue AIs, and the other sundry inhabitants of the Sixth World.
Savage Worlds players will soon be able to use new races and cyberware, build their own starships and power armor, and more with the Science Fiction Companion. Releasing in the next two weeks for only $7.99, this add-on will be a must-have for every Savage Worlds campaign!
If you’re playing Kings of War 2nd Edition to satisfy your need for a good fantasy miniatures game, we have some great news! Thanks to the hard work of the same volunteer data file author that supported Warhammer Fantasy 8th Edition, you can now create and manage rosters for this hot, new game. Thank you to Joseph for his contributions to these files, and his support of Army Builder.
