Iíve never played in a vtt space, but looking to do so. I know I read in one of the threads that HLO wasnít intended to be a VTT (at least not yet, and Iím paraphrasing a bit probably) but that it could perhaps compliment one.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a vtt noob as a starting point? Prefer to do 2e, but also have all my accounts in HLC for 1e also. Iím looking to do this as a player, not GM at least to begin with.
Thanks in advance. Mod, if this thread in the wrong forum please move wherever appropriate?

Tooting our own horn here but you can try out MapTool for free since it's opensource and will always be free.

To get over the initial "um, where do I start?" there are several youtube videos and a friendly Discord server not to mention a forums with over a decades worth of info...

https://www.rptools.net/

You can visit my links below to grab a Pathfinder 1E campaign and a sever invite to Discord.

I'm currently working on a Pathfinder 2E campaign but it's still rough around the edge and hoping for an API still from LW for HLO. I play face-2-face so my campaigns revolve around that, but there are other frameworks out there for PF1E.

Note: We support HL classic by directly reading the portfolio for character import (my framework then stats out PF1E characters from this). For 2E, MT has full RESTful macro support that will hopefully be enough to interact with HLO for character data.

I use d20 pro for Gming my games. I have used map tools and roll20 in the past and although they are both great resources, I prefer D20 pro for its ability to quickly add and build encounters on the fly.

Cool, thanks to both of you for the info and invite. I guess a quick followup, where is the best place to look for virtual games to join? not really wanting to do PbP, more interested in VTT for PF2 so i can start learning the system.

I just got back in to gaming after a few years and needed a vtt. End up with Fantasy Grounds, but there isn't Hero Lab support for PF2. I just use Hero Lab Online for character gen, then you have to manually input that info into Fantasy Grounds. But if you use HLC there is import tool. I am just hoping at some point in the future, there will be this feature for HLO.

For joining games online games, it's usually best to find the Discord server or forum for that particular game. For instance, there is a Pathfinder Society Discord server which have dedicated channels for people looking for games and looking for players. Those are great to start with IMHO has they are typically one shot adventures designed to run in 4-5 hours.
