Good lord, Shadowrun NEEDS a good character builder. The game is fun enough, but the character creation is such a chore that if I was running the game, I'd not want to kill off characters or NPCs just so I wouldn't have to run through the tax-audit of making a character again.

Shadowrun. Also, the old (pre-reboot) WoD.

The only thing stopping me from buying Hero Lab is the fact that you do not support Shadowrun or Scion. If you had either one of those I would buy it tonight. My first choice is Shadowrun btw since I am starting a campaign up this weekend.

Of all the games you have listed, the only one that catches my eye is True20 (as it is the only other one I play regularly). Games that it would be useful to me to see supported include Mongoose's Traveller and Wizards of the Coast's Alternity (which is long out-of-print).

As far as Mongoose goes, they have already explicitly stated that there will not be a Hero Lab version of their Traveller rules, though I don't recall ever having seen a reason.

And for Rifts, all I can say is, good luck. Palladium is unbelievably paranoid about their intellectual property. Even if you can convince them to ease up a little, I can only imagine the problems inherent in setting up the data files for a game that doesn't even agree with itself on many points (ever looked up the same rule in different books?) and for which the classes become more and more ridiculously overpowered with every supplement that is released. Not to mention that the system itself is clunky and about as streamlined as a child's lunchbox.

Something that .needs. a good character builder is Rolemaster - all the ones I've found online are outdated and buggy. Character Creation can take two or three sessions between all the charts and books..

Same here. I'd buy it now if it supported Shadowrun.
