  1. It’s nice to see another character creation/gm tool come available in the marketplace, but I don’t know if it isn’t too late to really get the d20 market. That will largely depend on the friendliness of the tool. Etools can be a memory hog so a competitor would be nice to see. As for other RPGs, I have been fond of Metacreator, but looking at the Hero Lab functionality it might be a superior software for my Savage Worlds stuff.

  3. I agree that Hero Lab is coming a bit late to the market. Still, I respect what Lone Wolf has done with Army Builder and Card Vault, and I see the same level of quality in Hero Lab.

  5. Understand d20’s dominance over the system market, but I personally would really like to see it used for another game system.

  8. Understood. Just hope they port in the old game systems, say like Marvel, Star Wars d6, oh and yeah BNW!!

  10. From what I’ve seen, they’re looking to get permission from each game publisher first. I’d guess out-of-print games come lower on their list, but there’s no reason AEG couldn’t let them do BNW (for instance) at the same time as Legend of the Five Rings. Games for which a publisher no longer has a licence, though, would be tricky if not impossible, if only for legal reasons.
