Hero Lab Giveaway!
We’re excited to announce our winners for the Hero Lab Giveaway! Congrats to the Dungeon Master of Roses Tinted who shared the following creative limerick telling the tale of why their DM deserves a copy of Hero Lab. We are happy to present them with one and enjoyed your bit of rhyme.
Our DM is great at story telling
All the work he puts in is such madness
To cut down his prep time duration
We would also like to congratulate Anrya and hope she enjoys the product and keeps gaming for many years to come!
Hello Lone Wolf!
I’d like to nominate my daughter, Anrya, for your Hero Lab Giveaway Contest this month. She’s an avid roleplayer who at the age of 12 traveled to GenCon and earned exceptional praise from tables full of adult gamers for her passion and maturity as a roleplayer.
Now in high school, Anrya has just begun her journey into the world of GMing and has enjoyed helping me manage our home Pathfinder campaign using Hero Lab on my PC. She has recruited her friends into a new Pathfinder campaign and is hoping to start her first session shortly. A major challenge for her, has been one common to many kids we might describe as ‘digital natives’.
While she has been working with her friends to generate their characters, she has been working on Skype or Facetime to communicate on one hand while on the other hand she has been rifling through our various hardcover books, juggling pencils and shuffling endless characters sheets. This seems entirely natural to me, being an ‘old-crusty-gamer’, but for today’s digital natives, this presents a fairly stark chasm to cross – they are quite used to being able to find whatever they need quickly online, while being able to instantly collaborate with their contacts. It also doesn’t help that her friends are quite spread out across the town/countryside where we live, either. Thank goodness she’s still so passionate about running her game!
Having her own Hero Lab license would help encourage her immensely and provide her an amazing tool to stay organized and manage all levels of her campaign. Hero Lab is a tool that makes sense for an ‘old-crusty-gamer’ like me, because… well, I forget things. For her and her generation, however, Hero Lab is a tool that works as they expect and need things to work. It is amazing what levels of creativity she and her peers can achieve when they are not held back by ‘archaic paper-shuffling’. Great times roleplaying with your friends should not feel like learning how to become a librarian or an exercise in filling out tax forms (note: I appreciate all Librarians and Tax Consultants!).
Thank you kindly for your consideration, and keep up the great work!
Many thanks to those who participated in our contest, we enjoyed all the stories, praise, and amusing commentary. While it wasn’t easy picking winners, we hope that those who won enjoys their loot! Keep an eye our fore more opportunities in the future!
