So I've not really checked in with HLO since like, May of last year. I remember the creators were saying that integrating with VTTs had bumped up in priority with the pandemic. Did this ever materialize?

Can I take my HLO characters and easily import them into Fantasy Grounds or Roll20, like I used to be able to with Classic?

Also, what is the state of an Authoring Kit/Custom Content option, to add custom classes, races, weapons, etc, la Hero Lab Classic.

I think HLO has made the export on their end, but nothing has materialized for FGU or Roll20 for input. We just build the character in HLO and then re-build in FGU and use HLO to make sure it's correct.

And the comment they've made about the Editor (not even touching the Authoring Kit) is that, since things run on their servers rather than on a person's computer, they're still trying to figure out a good way to avoid sloppy or malicious coding resulting on a drain in server resources. Halting Problem and all that.

I've got a (admittedly basic) import script for Roll20. You may get some wonky results sometimes due to the erratic nature of the HLO export file.

Slate has created a module for Foundry VTT that imports PF2 characters from Hero Lab Online, thanks to HLO's json export.
