This is the main information thread for the community add-ons called "Packs". Each Pack is downloaded and installed just like the official Pathfinder game from inside of Hero Lab. It just requires a one time setup to use and after that you will be auto-notified when updates are released.

Setup Instructions

Please see THIS pdf document for detailed install instructions. After setting up the update URL restart Hero Lab and click on the "Find Updates" button. Then from the list look for "Pathfinder Pack (vX.XX)" and click Download.

The updates URL is:
Additional HL Licenses
The requirement of needing official "licenses" to make use of the community Packs is a thing of the past. The single download "Pathfinder Pack" contains the contents of all the previous different packs now!

What Pathfinder Community "Packs" are available?
  • Pathfinder Pack – Contains all the community's hard work in a single download. (Unchained, GM Bestiary, GM Mythic Bestiary, Eberron Campaign, 3PP [Ultimate Psionics, Path of War, Rogue Genies Games..], and d20 Modern)
  • Gestalt Variant Addon - This packages allows for creating gestalt characters for Pathfinder. It is "beta" and a work in progress.
  • Encounter Library: Curse of the Crimson Throne (original 3.5 version) - This download holds the pre-built encounters for the Pazio's 3.5 version of Curse of the Crimson Throne AP.
  • Encounter Library: FMG Way of the Wicked - This download holds the pre-built encounters for Fire Mountain Game's Way of the Wicked AP.
  • Encounter Library: Mummys Mask - This download holds the pre-built encounters for Paizo's Mummy's Mask AP.
Looking for Module or AP Encounter files?
Zip files with the encounter files for many modules and adventure paths is located on the d20pfsrd repository. These are separate downloads because as of last check we have 1.5gigs of encounter files. No way to include that in the version released each month.

What issues are known and what is on the to-do list?
