Re: [FREQ] Slayer Archetype: Warhound

Andrew Maitland
 

Doesn't matter really. Any replaced class feature is removed upon taking the archetype. What and when you grant replacement class features is up to you.

That is what the PRECLASS tag is controlling. What level do you gain the replacement.

Cheers,

Andrew

What would be the procedure if there's a swap + delay?
It sound easy enough to have a class feature that replaces 2 features, but what about a feature that gets delayed a level, and is what replaces something else on the level it's gain on.

Archetypes are not hard to add.

FACT:CF_NameOfClass_ClassFeatureWeReplace|true <-- removes the class features we aren't using, and then we tack on the new class features using:

ABILITY:ClassName Class Feature|AUTOMATIC|ClassName ~ New Class Feature|PRECLASS:1,ClassName=LevelValue

And then the class feature replacement is the same as a regular class feature.

You have trickiness when dealing with casting archetypes, but beyond that, not too hard. If you want to tackle it yourself, figure it takes about 2-4 hours when all is said and done if you have no experience.

Andrew

I really would like to write up a character with this Archetype, however, the book that it's sourced from isn't on the list of sources. I don't know if it would be easier to ask for just the Archetype being added or the rest of the book too. I don't know if it helps any, but I do have a pdf copy of the book it's from.

Re: PCGen v.6.07.08 - Classes

Andrew Maitland
 

Ok, so what exactly are you trying to accomplish? Grant a class feature because they took a feat? Remove the PREMULT tag that has been inserted for no apparent reason (You are basing this on 2+ different viable options) and make it based upon an actual feat...

Do this:

1 <> ABILITY:Ninja Class Feature|AUTOMATIC|Ninja ~ Martial Arts Style|PREABILITY:1,CATEGORY=FEAT,TYPE.Martial Arts

CHOOSE is for choosing things. PRExxx is for requiring things. CHOOSE should never be used directly in a PRExxx.

Also, coding help should happen on either the LST Help group or the PCGen forum of the same name.

Cheers,
Andrew

Re: PCGen v.6.07.08 - Classes

BirkholzS@...
 

All:  I may have figured out it currently can't be done.  I just noticed in the PCGen Documentation that it says "While the CHOOSE tag is extremely flexible, it should be noted that support for CHOOSE in class files is still in the works and will cause problems. This is a known issue, and all I can say is that, "We are working on it."

If anyone knows of a work around to do what I want I would love to here it though.

Re: PCGen 6.06.01 - Drow Elf

BirkholzS@...
 

Andrew,

Thank you.  It appears that latest alpha version is working.  I don't usually like to use alpha versions but will use it to see if it keeps working.  Now it appears I need to fix me Deity LST as they deprecated some of the stuff to FACTS and I had added a Ninja class and will need to go in and update that as well, but overall thank you.


Re: PCGen 6.06.01 - Drow Elf

BirkholzS@...
 

Thanks.  I will give it a try and let you know.


Re: PCGen 6.06.01 - Drow Elf

Andrew Maitland
 

Hi,

1) Use 6.07.08

2) Should work correctly once you update (Also, sometimes the Summary page is slow to update... Click on the stat section, and move a value up and then down by 1.  If it still doesn't work let me know.

Cheers,

Andrew

I don't know if I am doing something wrong but when I create a character as an Elf it shows the DEX +2 and CON -2 racial adjustments but when I go into the FEATS & ABILITIES tab and then RACE TRAITS and select the Drow Elf as the new subrace it should be adding INT +2 and CHA +2 as additional Drow Elf racial adjustments but it isn't.  I see in the races LST file that those adjustments are listed but the subrace is commented out.  If I uncomment that subrace it now shows up as a race I can select and the additional racial adjustments are added but now I don't see the additional RACE TRAITS tab under FEATS & ABILITIES.  Is there something wrong with the program or am I missing something?  Is there possibly another LST file I might need to look at?

I change the alignment on the summary page with the pull down menu but it does not update the Statistics.  The Statistics still says none and because of this I can not choose any class that requires a certain alignment.  Does anyone have a work around?

Annoying... But taken care of. Banned and deleted.
