All we can say at the moment is that we've been in discussions with Wizards for quite some time about this subject. Nothing has been officially determined at this point. We'll definitely let everyone know once we have something concrete to share.

I'd say hold off until GenCon on this one. I am sorry to say but it is too early to begin worrying about doing something like next. WotC has changed so many things in this playtest with each iteration nothing is completely consistent, much less set in stone yet. Anything from those packets is still subject to change until they release books, which from what I've seen isn't happening anytime soon yet.

Wasn't expecting something to come out for next for a while. But from reading Rob's post it almost sounds like there may be something in the works for HL being the official character generator for Next just like for Pathfinder. I may be reading more into his statement but if were to happen that would be kewl.

Rob is trying to work something out with wizards of the coast, but I honestly believe this close to GenCon any "negotiation" talks would be more likely to happen at the convention. GenCon is the big gaming convention of the year where representatives from all parts of the gaming industry gather each year. I say it's an uncertainty because nothing is really set in concrete with next. Mike Mearls could wake up tomorrow and decide to scrap something in next and replace it with something new. The skills system I know for a fact is undergoing extensive testing of various methods. From a data file authors perspective, I'd prefer to see something concrete before worrying about coding. It would be a waste of time to keep up with playtest materials. I would hold off until after GenCon as that is where Rob or another LWD representative would have the opportunity to talk with WOTC/Hasbro.

Nice? Would be Ideal for me. I would have stopped running 4e altogether if it wasn't for Hero Lab the day WotC changed its hero builder to online access only. Hero Lab kept me playing that game far longer than I would have. I cancelled my D&DI account after multiple failed attempts to build a character on their software. It crashed on me midway through character building so many times and lost the data I had put in that it was just a chore to make a character. Hero Lab caused me to reinstate my account to keep the data updates going.

I really believe the wolf pack here knows how to make great character management software and I would love to see Hero Lab become the official software for next (Or D&D in general). I hope Hasbro learns from its mistakes. I really do.
