Are there any plans to put D&D 5e online?

Thanks,
Rob

I'm pretty sure that Lone Wolf's long-term plan is to port at least the most popular game systems on Hero Lab Classic into Hero Lab Online, but until they have User Content working it's probably not worth it for D&D 5e or Pathfinder First Edition.

Currently Running: Pathfinder Second Edition
Currently Playing: Star Trek Adventures

Former HL Games: Pathfinder First Edition, D&D (4e & 5e), Mutants & Masterminds (2E & 3E), Savage Worlds

so the D&D material that Wolflair is allowed to put in HL is only the open source material. Which is not even the entire players handbook. Wizards has their own online character generator so they don't license other companies. There really is no point in coding it for HLO. The only thing (in my opinion) that makes HLC useful for 5e is Fenrir's exhausting efforts to enter data, which cannot be done for HLO.

Wizards don't have their own online character generator. DnDBeyond is a third party tool that pays a licensing fee to WOTC for the rights to use their content for profit. They are just like LWD except they made a better product and WOTC are picky about who they approve to use their licensed content. There are multiple third party companies (Roll20, Fantasy Grounds, DnDBeyond) who have acquired the rights to sell WOTC content.

The subjective "quality" of the platform has absolutely nothing to do with licensing. But no, we do not have it licensed, so the only materials we can support officially are open source and 3rd party, so it's limited to HLC.
