Did anything ever come of adding any of the Palladium Books properties to Hero Lab? Mainly Rifts...

The folks at Palladium were keen on having us develop data files for Rifts. When they talked with their lawyers, though, there was already a legal obligation on their end that they felt could be unnecessarily complicated by licensing us to do the data files. So everything was put on hold. If memory serves, I believe the conflicting obligation expired in 2010. So it's still possible we could work something out, but it has to wait until the conflict is no more.

For more details on this, you might consider asking the good folks at Palladium directly, since I'm not sure what additional details can or can't be shared.

Thank you for a simple and straight answer. I've been trying to get that answer out Palladium for going on two years now. Every time I would ask, I got the runaround.

I really hope you can get something worked out.

Over the past year, Hero Lab has been gaining a great deal of momentum. We've got a number of major new game systems already in the pipeline and a full schedule into the Fall. So we can definitely re-open discussions with Palladium. However, nothing can be completed in the near term, even if Palladium decides that they want to actively pursue this with us.

I would be all about purchasing the ability to use Herolab to make Palladium Character of any setting. That would be just too kool, and alot easier. I love playing the game, but Character creation can take a while.

Rob- thanks again for the GREAT communication. I would throw my money at this, too. I love the Rifts/Pall Megaverse.

Any movement towards Palladium Books being brought into the fold?
