I contacted Kobold Press via Paizo's forums about the Pathfinder version of the Hero lab files for this product. They have stated that there has been no word on the progress for release. However, the 5e version has apparently been released.

Can anyone provide any information regarding an estimated release date of the Pathfinder version of the KP product?

Thanks.

We'd love to have Demon Cults for Pathfinder in our catalogue, but we unfortunately don't have the staffing to make that happen at this time. While it's possible KP has their own people working on it, we're not aware of who that would be or when it might be delivered to us.

Hope this helps, and sorry I don't have better news!

Colen,

Someone published the 5e version of this product for Kobold Press. And they seem to be wanting to contact you guys to get this completed for their Kickstarter.

We built the 5e version of DCSS, but we don't have the resources to do the Pathfinder version right now. We've been in contact with KP about it, but I'm not aware of anyone working on it at present.

So, I have to ask - since Hero Lab fully supports Pathfinder and can't fully support 5e due to WotC's licensing decisions & D&D Beyond, WHY would you build the 5e version and not the PF version?

Or are the 5e and PF resource pools completely separate from one another?

I get that Ultimate Wilderness & PF companions is a lot of content but that kind of work effort/load is something you folks have been handling for years.

According to Frog God Games they are seeing the following demand:
60% 5e
15% Pathfinder
25% Other

I suspect that likely has something to do with it.

Source?

Given that all of FGGs recent kickstarters have been 5e releases of previous PF & S&W releases with only minimal new PF/S&W content/updates, that's hardly surprising. Which, as a huge FGG fan, is annoying to say the least as I'm still anxiously awaiting the release of the Campaign Setting...

Hero Lab's in a different boat. Even if 5e demand is high (I'm sure it is), HL lacks official licensing. I don't play 5e, but if I did I'd almost certainly be going the D&D Beyond route for official support even though I'm a big Hero Lab & RealmWorks fan. I'd still use RealmWorks for campaign management, obviously.

I asked them in their latest kickstarter live stream. Their response was 5e is the place to be right now.
