    Very cool. I am not familiar with Hero Lab, how interactive is it after you create your character? Is it fairly intuitive?

    I would like to know more.

    Haven’t used it in game… I have actually never err um had occasion to get to play Low Life :(. From the fluff found HERE and looking at the interface, It can be used as an electronic character sheet – tracks Power Points, bennies, health and injuries. For the GM they have what they call a “Tactical View” which tracks all that across multiple characters, pulls initiative cards every round, tracks the turn, etc.

    And of course it can be used to manage your character over time – character advancement.

    You can download it and try it for free – not sure if there is a time limit on it, or if in that mode you can use these custom settings.

    Ok, cool. Thanks for the info. So this would be something like Roll20, that allows people over a long distance to play together at a virtual “table”?

    No I don’t believe it has a virtual component. More a GM tool

    Any chance you could pass that module along, Thom? I like Hero Lab but haven’t delved into its underpinnings, really.

    I’ve been known to call it “that hero… wolf thing? The f#%&*ing character builder. No, not the Wizards one, the Pathfinder one. Just shut up.”

    But to your question, no.

    I’m an avid user of character/monster/adventure creation tools, and it seems like carefully curating large datasets, hacking, and simple programming puts it right in my wheelhousse, but I’ve never thought about customizing.

    Mostly I’m lazy, I guess. 😉

    Wap – Delighted to (assuming it’s ok with Andy) – U want what I have now or you want to wait until its done? I am keying in all the data elements now, including any of the logic I can figure out. My intent is to then hit the boards with all my questions at the end.

    I have the races in (Minus special rules that will wait until the end), Powers, Hindrances, Skills, Racial Properties, Back Ground Edges, Combat edges and Leadership Edges.

    Still to go:
    Professional Edges, Weird Edges, Legendary Edges and T’zint Edges.

    And all the gear. I will prolly tackle the missing rules before the gear.

    IANAL, but I think andy needs to weigh in to protect his IP.

    If he does, I’d love to help with an official Hero Lab Low Life.
