I recently came across a source book called "Laying Waste" by TPK Games, which describes a nice alternative system for critical hits in Pathfinder. Does LWD plan to support that some time in the future?

IDK - but you could do an "Adjustment" as a user file. It would be something like -

post levels 10000

~ If we're not enabled, get out now
doneif (field[pIsOn].value = 0)

var x as number

x = random(20)

if (x = 0) then
field[pChkName].text = "1 - Check the ? for full txt results"
field[CustDesc].text = "Standard critical damage as indicated by the weapon type."

if (x = 1) then
field[abText].text = "2 - Check the ? for full txt results"
field[CustDesc].text = "Critical multiplier increased by 1."

and so on....

More companies would love to provide HL support. There are four problems with that:

1) It takes time.
2) It isn't free.
3) There are not very many people that are willing to do it.
4) It takes time (this is worth noting twice).

While it is entirely possible that someone will do things for free (that is how we have this http://www.d20pfsrd.com/extras/commu...tions/hero-lab), people are well within their rights for asking to be paid to do it. Some things are super easy and do not take very much time, but other things are more complicated and/or time consuming.

Adding a spell or an item are examples of something easy. Adding a class or archetype take the longest. Implementing all of the materials in Laying Waste would take time.

Many people, like me, would be willing to do it, but they do not have the time available for doing more than a mod here and there (as opposed to a full project). And I have no idea what a good rate to charge would be.

Evil wins because good rolls poorly .... or the players are not paying enough attention to the game.

I believe they have hired a guy that is working on the HL package last I heard. I only know this because of the "type" of questions I got asked. So I am unable to say how far it got but I thought it was a kickstarter stretch goal or something?

I admit I am sort of guessing based on the questions that it was the above mentioned product. If not the same it was really similar.

The TPK Games website lists Lone Wolf as one of their partners so that's why I asked. If they are doing it themselves it's okay for me :-)
