Hero Labs "module" for BT:AToW?
« on: 01 February 2012, 23:57:13 »
Any plans to get an official character design software "module" for Hero Labs?

I like the product, would love to see some character creation/management software such as Hero Labs.

Does anyone know if something like that is in the works?

The answer that was given by the folks at Lone Wolf a while back when that question was asked (prior to the release of the Shadowrun dataset) is that they would see how things went with the Shadowrun module.  I haven't heard anything new about it, nor has it been announced.  That said, I'm very much hoping that the collaboration with Catalyst on the Shadowrun dataset went well so that we can see an AToW dataset release. :)

I've been working on on myself using the Authoring Kit. It's point-buy only, but I've got the traits, skills and qualities mostly entered, along with some other stuff. Not anywhere close to done, but I figure it's a third of the way there.

It's been a while, but I'm working on this again. Included are a few screenshots to show what's been done. If anyone has some experience with the HeroLab authoring kit, I'd love some help!

How is this project coming?  I don't have any experience with the authoring kit but I'd love to see Herolab support for AToW.  With Realmworks coming out this summer, it seems a perfect fit for the sandbox style play that AToW encourages.  Since Herolab is integrated with Realmworks, it would be nice to be able to create and maintain characters using Herolab and just zip 'em over to Realmworks.  Is there any chance of an official licensing deal?

wow, looks like a pretty neat system and ATOW is dying for a CC program.
Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries

These, in the day when heaven was falling,      Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
The hour when earth's foundations fled,         They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
Followed their mercenary calling,               What God abandoned, these defended,
And took their wages, and are dead.             And saved the sum of things for pay.

Wow. Did not see this earlier. It looks promising and I do know that Hero Lab is a very good toolset. I hope it continues.
Alas poor Photobucket. I knew him Horatio, a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy.
