Thanks to help from Mergon, dungeonguru, daplunk, and Shadowchemosh, I've finished putting together a first pass at the player options in Guildmaster's Guide to Ravnica.

How to get it
This is pre-release content. That means that you cant get it just by updating your 5e Community Pack through Hero Lab's interface. You need to go to the GitHub and grab the files. Everything will need to go in your 5e game data folder. You can find where this is through Hero Lab. Click: Tools > Explore Folders > Game System Data Folder.

The needed files
These are the ones you need to pull down or otherwise copy from the GitHub to get everything programmed for GGtR:
  • COM_5ePack_GGtR - Backgrounds and Factions.user
  • COM_5ePack_GGtR - Classes and Spell.user
  • COM_5ePack_GGtR - Races and Languages.user
  • COM_5ePack_VGtM - Races.user
  • COM_5ePack_XGTE - Spells.user
  • COM_Source_110 - Sourcebooks.1st


Method 1: Download it all
Go here and click the green "Clone or download" button. Then click "Download ZIP". Extract the everything into your game data folder. You'll get warnings to overwrite stuff. You don't necessarily need to overwrite everything, just the above files.

Method 2: Copy just the files
Click on each of the five files in the GitHub, then open the same file on your computer in Notepad. If the file doesn't exist on your PC yet (like the three files with GGtR in the name), you'll need to make them first. Copy the full text from the GitHub version and replace the entirety of the file on your computer. Save that file.

Finishing up
Either method you do this, you'll need to reload Hero Lab. Save and quit, or hit ctrl+r. To see these options on a character, use the Configure Hero menu and check the box for Guildmaster's Guide to Ravnica.

What's included
  • Order Domain Clerics
  • Circle of Spores Druids
  • The Centaur, Goblin, Minotaur, Loxodon, Vedalken, and Simic Hybrid races
  • Encode Thoughts and Chaos Bolt spells
  • 10 Backgrounds, representing the 10 guilds, with all background features (and factions to track your renown with them)

What's Left
I'd love to say I will get on all these right away. But the truth is, I won't. We have to catch up on Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes first. By the time that's done, Ghosts of Saltmarsh and Acquisitions, Inc. will be released, with plenty of work to do on each. If you're interested in helping with anything, let me know.
  • Bug fixes; the same animal enhancement can be chosen twice and Tireless Precision doesn't work perfectly
  • Monsters
  • NPCs
  • Magic Items

I found a bug/mistake/problem!
Great! This is prerelease material, so the more we find, the better. Tell us as much as you can by logging an issue at the GitHub. We'll see what we can do.

"Ooooooooh, he's tryin'!"
