Re: Adding New Spells

Hi M,

That supplement is already in the coded sources

wow that test character I rolled to make sure the spell was in the source was one of the best rolls I've ever done... 12 total mod.

Once in pcgen and with pathfinder loaded, without a character loaded go to Sources- Select sources- click on the advanced tab and enter the companion name -add selected, then I would save this selection and use this modified source material when using the character.

That should get you what you need.

 

Hope this makes sense.

Adding New Spells

MVLaRocca@...
 

Hi Everyone,

I was hoping you could help me with a small issue.  I am having trouble adding in new spells to the 6.08.00 RC8 version of the program.  A player found the "Burning Disarm" spell from the Pathfinder Companion: Cheliax, Empire of Devils expansion and would like to use it for his Druid character.

is there a way to add the spell to the program?  Not a programmer or a coder so I could use all the help I can get.


Thanks in Advance,

M

Re: Editing item properties for Pathfinder Items #bug

Wyrms,

I'm not sure this forum is the best place any more to place a question.  I think Discord my be frequented more often by the volunteers.

As to your question.  I looked at the lst files for the Scabbard of Many Blades in the Advanced Class Guide and the Efficient Quiver in Ultimate Equipment.    From what I can see, there is no code written for the Scabbard of Many Blades, just a brief description and note.  The Efficient Quiver has a complete code and description write-up.  It's easy to edit the lst files.  I use Notepad++ suggested on these forums years ago.  If no one provides the exact code, use the line for the Efficient Quiver as a guide and have a go at it yourself.

As one suggestion before editing, I always copy the line I'm about to edit and then comment out the original making changes only to the copy.  This way I can go back and see what was originally there.

Editing item properties for Pathfinder Items #bug

The Scabbard of Many Blades in Pathfinder has this description:

This scabbard can hold multiple melee weapons in an extradimensional space, including weapons that would not normally fit in any kind of scabbard or sheath. It can hold up to four two-handed weapons. Two one-handed or light melee weapons can fit in each two-handed weapon slot, for a maximum capacity of eight one-handed or light melee weapons. Only weapons designed to be used by creatures the same size as the wearer or smaller can be kept in a scabbard of many blades. The scabbard can’t be used to store shields (even if they can be used to make melee attacks), gauntlets, improvised weapons, or wands, but can store rods (which are treated as one-handed weapons) and magic staves (which are treated as two-handed weapons).

When the wearer draws a weapon from the scabbard, if she does not lose her grip on it (keeping it in her hands at all times), as a move action she can have it switch places with another weapon in the scabbard. If the wearer has the Quick Draw feat, she can do this as a swift action. If the wearer loses her grip on a weapon drawn from the scabbard, that weapon can’t switch places with another weapon until it has been, sheathed in the scabbard of many blades and drawn again.
My problem is I cannot actually store anything in the scabbard as it is not considered a "container" in PCGen. How do I edit it's properties to fix this?

That's an odd set up. If CHA is the main score, it should dictate DC, but you can change the DC for the class using the BONUS tag. Just realize you need to use Score IIRC.

Here's a podcast I found interesting about the maintenance costs of open source software. And it made me think of my favorite open source software: PCGen!

Re: Looking into PCGEN

Wow, a very well written assessment that hits all the points.

@Paul you should recruit Steven to the PR team!

As a long-time developer with the project, I concur with Steven. PCGen does a lot, it takes abuse and for the most part we include most of the mainstream books. However, you get what you pay for in terms of support. Only a handful of us are around to kick the tires and grease the rails.

If you want something included, the best  bet is to ask for help and give it the old college try first.

Yes, it is still kicking along as a project, but at the pace of the available volunteers, which is not much... But hey, if more people join up and contribute anything could happen.

I consider it the best character management software extent.

For those who love the bleeding-edge, or those who cling to the little box of stapled booklets, it is no doubt disappointing. Trying to cram every single source ever thrown together by anyone will absolutely break it. Stripping it down to the basre essentials sometimes produces unexpected results---the "where did that come from" effect. 

Sometimes things break. Usually, the guys fix them. Sometimes, that takes a little time.

As far as cost-benefit analysis goes, if you're not one of the half-dozen people pouring their life into the project, it is an insane bargain. You won't find anything else that can do what PCGen does for an ask.

Working the edges can put some burden on the GM---using unusual classes or combinations of classes can sometimes find a seam in the code. But usually, PCGen can take a remarkable amount of abuse and still kick out a character sheet with good numbers on it.

Like many old-timers, I have evolved my own system. All I had to do to make it work was beat on the source files---not trivial, but not Nemean Lion, either---and the engine cranks out my character sheets. I have an "additional" save (I call it Clarity), I use a To Cast roll for Spellcasters, and I rationalised the number system (being a wargamer at heart). PCGen took it all in stride.

Hope that helps.
