V3.2 - Waterdeep and Candlekeep - April 18, 2021

While the official adventures almost always include stat blocks for new monsters, there are also a lot of NPC’s and creatures that are described merely as modifications of existing one, like “Blahblah uses a Mage stat block with the following changes.” Many such monsters are programmed as their own entries in the Community Pack, so a DM can find them in the Encounter Builder. Almost all of these that are NOT in the encounter builder are able to be created using the base stat block and the many, many adjustments available in the Adjustments tab. So one way or another, when the patch notes say all monsters for a book are added, they’re either in the Encounter Builder or can be done with adjustments.

  • Acquisitions, Inc. - Added five new backgrounds.
  • Candlekeep Mysteries - Added all items, monsters, and charms.
  • Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount - Added two new backgrounds.
  • Mordenkainen's Fiendish Folio - All monsters added.
  • Unearthed Arcana: 2020 Subclasses, Part 4 - College of Spirits Bard and Undead Warlock added.
  • Unearthed Arcana: Folk of the Feywild - Four new lineages added.
  • Unearthed Arcana: Gothic Lineages - Three new lineages added.
  • Waterdeep: Dragon Heist - Added all items and monsters.
  • Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage - Added all items and monsters.

  • BGDiA - Added all variant background features. Add them to the PHB backgrounds using the Background Option, Baldur's Gate adjustment.
  • DMG - Added the siege weapons. They can be found in the gear tab.
  • DMG - Added a "Generic Object" to the Encounter Builder. Add this to help track an object's AC and HP in the Tactical Console; its size, material, and durability are adjustable per the rules in the DMG. Use adjustments to tweak its stats as needed.
  • GoS - Added the additional Saltmarsh-specific options to existing backgrounds. The Noble’s extra origins table can be enabled via a Saltmarsh backgrounds adjustment.
  • HotDQ - Updated the extra background Bonds to make it clear they’re from this adventure, and reorganized list to not intermingle them with default Bond options.
  • MToF - Added the three astral vehicles. They can be found in the gear tab. Also added Blessed of Corellon as a Supernatural Gift.
  • OotA - Updated the extra background Bonds to make it clear they’re from this adventure, and reorganized list to not intermingle them with default Bond options.
  • PHB - Added more adjustments: weapon attack effect, weapon extra damage, weapon target, melee weapon reach.
  • SCAG - Tweaked Bladesong to provide Int mod in Con save situational note.
  • TCoE - Changed the Genie's Vessel from a piece of gear to a wondrous item, and ensured it can't be manually added.
  • ToA - Added the many inhabitations from the tomb as supernatural gifts.

  • All - More typos corrected.
  • MTOF - Fixed the Tiefling variants to have the correct spell names and indicate the level they’re being cast as. Thanks to ShadowRose for the catch and the fixes.
  • MTOF - Cleanup of incorrect and duplicate deities.
  • SCAG - Fixed the double Performance proficiency from Training in War and Song. Bug reported by ShadowRose.
  • TCoE - Fixed Telepathic feat to remove Shadow Touched stuff. Fixed Eldritch Mind to remove Tome of the Pact requirement. Thanks ShadowRose for the reports and fixes.
  • UA Feats - Fixed Spear Mastery to also benefit ranged spear attacks. Thanks to ShadowRose for the bug report.
  • Other - Removed some old coding that handled Kobold Press sources, which was presumably broken by a Hero Lab update at some point.

  • UA - When a lineage grants multiple creature types, Humanoid sometimes overwrites and hides the others. To avoid this, we have to push the secondary type to "overwrite," allowing both to be displayed. This makes the secondary type appear higher and display on the stat block. This isn't an issue with any programming (yet) but it may look strange. Please report any bugs you think may be related.
