Pre-Order ‘Rise of the Runelords’

Greetings Hero Lab user!


The Rise of the Runelords Encounter List
(Work in Progress)

If you’re a Pathfinder player or GM, the Hero Lab team has some exciting news to share!

You’ve probably heard of Pathfinder Adventure Paths like “Rise of the Runelords”, “Iron Gods”, and “Giantslayer” – great pre-built campaigns that thousands of Pathfinder players have come to know and love. These six-part, monthly adventures take a party of fresh-faced PCs up to level 15 and beyond, and can be easily adapted to a GM’s home-brew campaign world. In addition to dozens of pages of setting information, each 96-page chapter includes maps of areas to be explored, flavor text that helps bring your adventures to life, and dozens of encounters to challenge your players in combat.

In the past, we’ve been unable to provide these Adventure Path encounters for use in Hero Lab. Well, that’s about to change…

Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition for Hero Lab


The fearsome Skinsaw Man, pre-built in Hero Lab and ready for battle!

Today, you can pre-order the first of our Adventure Path packages for Hero Lab: Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition! The new Rise of the Runelords package provides you with everything you need to bring all the Adventure Path’s encounters to life through Hero Lab, including details for every monster, class, and option used – regardless of whether you’ve purchased the add-on packages that are normally required.

With Rise of the Runelords for Hero Lab, you can access all of the encounters from this AP, pre-built and ready for battle. Every encounter is available with just a click of the mouse, including spells, weapons, and special abilities already selected for NPCs. When you use Hero Lab’s integrated Tactical Console to manage your combats, you’ll be able to import each encounter for immediate use at the game table!

No Additional Hero Lab Packages Required!


Manage all of the ‘Rise of the Runelords’ encounters in the built-in Hero Lab Tactical Console!

Unlike the published Adventure Path, Hero Lab also provides GMs with all of the monster stats, such as Goblins and Zombies, without the hassle of flipping through your Bestiary book or PDF. Best of all, for any encounter using material from a Pathfinder supplement (like the Advanced Players Guide or the Bestiary), that material will automatically be available for you to use within the Adventure Path!

For example, the Skinsaw Man, one of the foes in this Adventure Path, is a demented Ghast that the players must face in battle. While Ghasts were introduced to Pathfinder in the Bestiary, you won’t need to own that Hero Lab add-on package to use them in Rise of the Runelords! In fact, you can still use the Skinsaw Man in an encounter, view all of his Ghast-specific attacks and abilities, or even print out a character sheet to reference at the game table.

Pre-Order Today!

Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition is available to pre-order now for only $24.99!
