  • Looking for Pathfinder bug fixesenhancements, and data file authoring changes? You can read all about those on our forums!
  • The full Pathfinder update can be found here.

If you’ve been waiting for the Book of the Damned to be available in Hero Lab, your wait is over! We’ve also released data files for the Antihero’s Handbook and the first two chapters of the Ruins of Azlant Adventure adventure Path for your October gaming needs.


Book of the Damned

Abandon All Hope!

As long as mortals have feared what awaits them after death, the threat of damnation has loomed. Powerful fiendish lords rule the deepest, darkest reaches of the Great Beyond: archdevils, demon lords, the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and more. Such is the power of their evil that even angels cannot resist it—when one servant of Heaven cataloged all the evil in existence in the Book of the Damned, Heaven’s judges doomed him to exile, appalled at what he had wrought. The Book of the Damned data package includes:

  • Several brand-new monsters to fill out the ranks of all 11 of the fiendish races, from sinister classics such as demons and devils to new favorites like asuras and sahkils.
  • New blasphemous rituals, magic items, powerful artifacts, and spells to arm your villains with or for heroes to discover and defy.
  • Three fiend-focused prestige classes, ready to vex and terrify adventurers who dare stand against their plots.
  • … and much, much more!

Book of the Damned is available in our store for just $12.99!


Ruins of Azlant

The Ruins of Azlant Adventure Path begins with the adventurers standing on the deck of a ship ready to make landfall at their new home. However, dread settles in as they notice that the colony is empty and abandoned. Tasked with uncovering the whereabouts of the prior group of colonists, the adventurers go ashore and explore the deserted settlement.

You can pick chapters 1 & 2 of the Ruins of Azlant Adventure Path in our store for just $24.99, with the remaining chapters being added as they release! This data package includes everything you need to properly run encounters in Hero Lab for the Ruins of Azlant Adventure Path.


Antihero’s Handbook

Join the Moral Minority!

Not all adventurers are exemplars of heroism, righteousness, and justice, but that doesn’t mean they can’t get the job done. With Pathfinder Player Companion: Antihero’s Handbook, you’ll find new rules options for characters on the shady side of morality. Whether you need a less-than-heroic background to justify your character’s flaws, are looking to join an antiheroic organization, or seek ways to play corrupt or cowardly adventurers, this book has just what you’re after. Featuring new archetypes, alchemical items and discoveries, and magic items, Antihero’s Handbook is the perfect guide for anyone not willing to stick to the straight and narrow.

Antihero’s Handbook is available now in our Player Companion #29 data package for just $4.99 and also includes the Elemental Master’s Handbook!





We know everyone is waiting anxiously for the release of the Content Market, and so are we! We’re more behind than we expected due to the need for “all hands-on-deck” to get Hero Lab Online into place. However, we’ve also encountered a hurdle we simply can’t overcome on our own. There are some technical issues with the communications between our site and Paizo’s site that have to work for properly handling purchases and authenticating ownership of Pathfinder PDFs. We are working closely with Paizo to resolve these hurdles as swiftly as possible. Once we move past them, we will release the Content Market. In the meantime, we plan to begin delivering some of the Kickstarter content shortly.


If you’ve been following the adventures of Lone Wolf lately, you’ve probably heard a lot of buzz about our newest addition, Hero Lab Online. While we’ve done our best to answer the landslide of questions in our Hero Lab Online FAQ, some things can only truly be answered by seeing it in action.

Good News! You can now sign up for the HLO Open Beta! We need your help to make Hero Lab Online the best character creation tool it can be. We invite you to sign up for the Open Beta and keep an eye on your email so you can dive into making characters for your Starfinder game as soon as it’s live. You’ll be able to let us know what you love, what you don’t, and share valuable bug reports with our dev team to help us make Hero lab Online even better!

Currently, HLO is being reviewed in a private Early Access Beta, but we’ll soon begin notifying people that the Open Beta is live. The Open Beta will start out small and then expand, with invitations being sent out based on the order in which signups are received, so don’t wait! We expect the Open Beta to launch the week of October 23rd. Until then, you can check out these awesome screenshots of HLO in action…


 Army Builder volunteers have been hard at work providing updates as usual! You’ll find new versions of the following in the latest Army Builder releases.

  • Age of Sigmar (Spanish) has been updated to v3.1 to include info from the General’s Handbook 2017
  • Gates of Antares v1.12 now includes all the newly released updated pdf army lists
  • War of the Ring has been updated to v1.11 with a variety of bug fixes


Lone Wolf Development is headed to PAX Unplugged next month on November 17th and we hope to see you there! You’ll be able to find us at booth  #856 and as usual we’ll be neighbors with our friends at Syrinscape! We’re going to need a few volunteers for the show, so if you live in Philly, or are just looking for a way to offset badge costs at the convention, and you’re versed in Hero Lab and Realm Works, send us an email!

Volunteer Requirements

Here’s what we’re looking for from our volunteers:


Ryan, a long-time Gen Con volunteer

  • Commit to working a total of 18 hours over the 3 days of the show: Schedule permitting, you may arrange your time so that you can still attend the show events you’re interested in.
  • You should have in-depth knowledge of Hero Lab, Realm Works, or both: You must be able to demo Hero Lab, Realm Works, or both competently, going into the “gory details” of at least one game system, preferably Pathfinder or 5th Edition.
  • You should enjoy helping new users: You’ll be representing and demoing Hero Lab or Realm Works to new users for 16 hours of the show, so you must be able to give a good impression.

Work means hanging out at the Lone Wolf booth, demoing the products to users and answering questions about them. Lone Wolf staff will always be available to help if you have questions.


As a thank you for helping, we provide the following perks to our volunteers:

  • Free exhibitor badge – this gives you all the benefits of a regular attendee badge, plus early access to the exhibit hall each day.
  • Free accommodation – we’ll put you up in a hotel room (you’ll be sharing with 1-3 other volunteers).

You’ll be responsible for meals and travel from where you live to PAX Unplugged and back.


Email our volunteer coordinator no later than October 31st. Please include your name, contact information, and your experience with Hero Lab, Realm Works, or both.
