Character creator software for RPGs is not exactly an innovation. Nonetheless I still thought it was sort of cool that the people behind Army Builder and Card Vault are doing a generalized RPG tool called Hero Lab. Oddly, given the name, they haven’t announced a kit for the Hero System – just the d20 SRD. But Lone Wolf’s track record and industry profile at least raises the possibility that more RPG publishers will get on board, and there will finally be a multi-system PC tool for chargen that doesn’t leave users at the mercy of lawsuits or open-source developers.
