I'm looking for a guide or tutorial for adding a new class into the pathfinder editor.

Specifically, this class:

You won't get a guide on a specific class, but you might be able to find a class already done that has similar abilities that you can look at in the editor.

Some guides/help:

Editor > Help > Help on using the editor (This includes classes)
Shadow's notes on the editor
LW Hero Lab videos on YouTube

A lot of what you want is likely to be copy and paste into the editor, then getting harder when you start doing class abilities, etc. Generally, the best start is to "New (Copy)" something that already exists and modify it, if you aren't comfortable doing your own scripting.
If you run into trouble, start a new thread and explain what you want, what you have done, and what doesn't work.

Current RPG's: Pathfinder (GM), Pathfinder (Player), Gamma World (GM, Pathfinder homebrew).
HeroLab: 3.5 & Pathfinder. HL User Files for PF: Greyhawk Setting, Gamma World (WIP).

DM and player of D&D since 1980.

I would add that since this uses the Spheres of Power system, you should have all of the files for that system (for reference and bug quashing purposes), and should probably set up a separate copy of the Pathfinder system specifically for the Spheres, to work on this (Tools menu, Duplicate Game System)

UPDATE: It's going well so far. A little stuck on one specific class ability:

Natural Scoundrel
A mountebank must select the Scoundrel sphere with the first talent they gain from this class and cannot select the natural rogue drawback when gaining this talent.

Even with the Spheres of Might and Power add on, I'm not sure how to add that little restriction in.

Sentinel gets Guardian as a bonus, and has to choose only that.

Striker gets their choice of an unarmed sphere, I think Boxing, Open Hand, or Brute.

Okay... So I've been trying to get this to work, and I'm absolutely baffled.

I tried taking the Combat Training Class Special and turning it into Natural Scoundrel.

Combat Training has only ONE bootstrap: Player can choose a Martial Sphere.

So I changed that bootstrap to: Player gains the Scoundrel Sphere.

That should do it it, right?


I playtest, and... you still have to choose a Martial Sphere... except you no longer have any options.

How...? Why... What...?

I don't. I don't get it.

The ability I changed, LITERALLY doesn't have anything else on it! no other bootstraps, no tags except "helper" tags, no evalscripts, NOTHING! What gives? It makes no sense!

Sorry. Frustrated.
