I would love to see more integration between GM and Player experience in Hero Lab Online.. particularly with Pathfinder, since everyone in my Pathfinder Group uses Hero Lab to track their characters.

1. Allow players to share character information with each other... by setting checkbox's next to the data they want to share.

2. Allow players to post messages to the GM that the GM can answer BETWEEN games. That way the game doesn't have to stop to answer non-immediate questions.

3. Allow GM to PLAYER to GM and back to Player functions. For example... Using the Ultimate Campaign rules, let the GM tell the players "2 days of downtime you can use." Let the players pick what they want to do with their downtime (add on to building in town, earn some money, retrain, etc.) which would go back to the GM. Let the GM approve their choices. Then that would update their character sheet with the correct changes.

4. If characters are stored on the Wolflair storage, allow players to make a scratchpad copy of their character that they can play around with different builds without affecting their main character sheet.

5. Let both players and GM have access to the character sheet stored on WolfLair (two different accounts access same character). Player should designate the GM of their choosing, should be updatable in case someone else takes over GMing a game for them.

6. Have revision control so if someone messes up a character sheet they can go back to it.

7. Have an online character portrait archive.

8. Allow custom game design.

Oh! And one more thing!

9. Let a GM create a house rules section that will automatically be updated between all the players... so that when they make a ruling on something weird all the players in their game will know about it.

I think via mechanics this will be possible already, but a sticky note in a chat box or message of the day box (perhaps?) that lists the house rules would be nice too.

I agree with these suggestions!

I was really hoping HLO was going to be built for games that take place over the internet, i.e. Roll20, or other virtual table top and Classic was going to remain the same.

Honestly I now want them to add a third sub-project to the list. Dynamic Map Tool; a tool that uses Realm Works files and creates a VTT out of it and with it being a dynamic tool that it can be used with the design of HLO client to create a full on software suite!

Yeah it is a pipe dream, but damn is it a good one! All that power in one suite, ohh yeah!

I had a recent look at Realm Crafter again (which I own) but it is still in too limited a state for me until the Pathfinder stuff gets released for it. I think it has a lot of promise, but I would have to cut and paste every single thing I already have (or worse, hand enter it) right now before I can even get a game started. I am really looking forward to them getting some modules and the like... or even some templates as starting points for your own Pathfinder campaign. I would ADORE being able to create npc's in Hero Lab and import them directly into Realms.

My group won't use any of the planned features. We only use HL for character creation.

For me personally, I'd like an simpler way to create my own game system.

Having access to characters on both my laptop and desktop will be handy though.

I currently use DropBox as my place of storage.
My laptop and desktop both access the same file (not simultaneously, although that would be possible).

Proper mobile phone support so that I can finally use my IPhone.

That's appears to be the driving decision behind Hero Lab Online.
