I don't really know who things worked with getting the Vampire Hunter into the builder, but is it possible the Omdure might get in? It is from Paizo, but in the similar vein of the Vampire Hunter D stuff was released through the IP owners. They seem like they would be in favor of getting it into the system.

For reference, the class: https://www.d20pfsrd.com/classes/base-classes/omdura/

There are also some new feats, races, and archtypes in the same Niobe book.

Seeming like they would be in favor is not good enough for copyright law purposes.

Since the Niobe is a Paizo book, you could write to Paizo (or the authors) to ask if they will produce HL files for that product. (This probably won't happen.) If you really want the Omdura class (or anything else from the book), your best option is using the editor to code it yourself.

If someone could please write community supported files for Omdura, that would be awesome. It's a great class and some friends and I really enjoy playing it. Unfortunately, it's really tough to make it work in Hero Lab just by line-iteming additions and subtractions of powers from Inquisitor.

If this still hasn't happened, I'll get to work on it.

You have to be careful with writing community data and sharing it, unless there's an ogl covering it you might be violating copyright...

RavenX

Please do not PM me to inquire about datafiles I coded "for personal use" such as Exalted, World of Darkness, AD&D, or Warhammer 40K Roleplaying. I appreciate your interest, but I do not own the Intellectual Property rights to these game systems. Nor do I have permission from any of the Publishers to distribute the data files. As such, I cannot distribute the work I have done with community on these files. They are "for personal use" only. Thank you.

I am far too busy these days to answer emails. If you message me here there is no guarantee I will get back to you at all.

I have always been confused by the copyright particulars when it comes to creating characters using an aid such as Herolab or Heroforge (that never got released, alas).

Character generators go off of the written word within the pages of a book the uses typically already owns. Though I do understand that one can not sell such worked files without license, why would it being given to others in a community (like Mod Files for a game) be in violation?

It's not just selling that would be a violation - so is copying and distribution.
From the PF Core Rulebook: "No portion of this work other than the material designated as Open Game Content may be reproduced in any form without written permission." Lone Wolf has permission to publish the files/data for the systems in HL. As user's of HL (or owners of RPG books), we don't.
