Considering buying Hero Labs for a 5e game that we run online. Currently we use Roll20 as our platform but we use shared google docs for our character sheets.

Does HL allow exporting character sheets to a text format that would be editable on Google Docs? Even better-- has anyone developed an importer for bringing HL characters into Roll20? (I saw someone has done that for Fantasy Grounds)?

Thanks much for the info.

Oops. I accidentally started two threads. Thought the first one hadn't gone through.

It's alright. We have to manually approve the first couple posts, so that is sometimes confusing to folk. You should have seen the spam we used to get on these forums before we started doing things that way though. It was like a plague of biblical proportions!

I didn't know that you checked posts, maybe I just didn't think of it. But this is one of the forums with the lowest bullshit level I've ever seen so it seems you are doing a tremendous job. Thanks a lot for that.

You can output a hero in plain text, HTML, BBCode, or Wikitext. You don't really get a huge amount of information. Here is a one of the characters being run in my D&D game output as plain text:

It's not very much information, but it's certainly enough to cover the major points.

Actually, that might be fine for game use. Thanks for that. Very informative.
