Self plug here but for the low low price of FREE, give MapTool a try and with all that money you'll save, you can spend it on Hero Lab!

But seriously, I've been told we have a great community of people so if you feel a little overwhelmed with a big blank grassy map, hit us up on Discord! Chances are, other people asked the same question(s) and willing to help new players get started (or search through the history for answers). We also have a forums if that's still your thing.

Yeah, but it looks like the main framework for really getting going with SWADE was only just picked back up to be worked on in December and is nowhere near ready, as far as I can tell (https://forums.rptools.net/viewtopic.php?f=84&t=7443). For me that does make a big difference on wanting to really use it.

Plus the lack of a web interface is a potential issue. Although, TBH, I don't mind hosting it locally as a server if Maptool would present itself as a web page. So either as a GM I'm running the app and doing things from the application and the players connect to the web server front end set up by Maptool or even if I run it by connecting from a local browser instance to do the GM work as well would all be really, really nice additions to deal with that problem.

I wish I could export from Hero Lab Classic to FoundryVTT. It looks really promising.

You're probably going to be better off going the other way, getting FoundryVTT (or any other VTT) to provide a way to import from Hero Lab. FantasyGrounds has an NPC Creator extension that can import a standard Stat Block format that is used in any Pinnacle products which Hero Lab supports as an output format. Others could potentially implement something similar.

I ended up going lowball and I'm using roll20.net and using Discord for the voice chat. It does enough to get the job done. I tried FGU as a test but it was too cumbersome and my players weren't impressed.
