Sounds like we need to update docs, it's been years since we've used HITDICE as part of a race. We
split that out into two tags 'MONSTERCLASS:x:y', (Yes, one of the few tags where you'll see two
colons), and 'HITDICEADVANCEMENT' for the second.
For instance, an Animal might have "2" hit dice, this would be written out MONSTERCLASS:Animal:2 -
you'll see there is a class file that has a class for the various monster race types.
To limit the max "HD" you use a tag called 'HITDICEADVANCEMENT' this can determine growth, and max
HD allowed for the creature.
If I can ask, if you're going to start asking how to code up things, to move that to our home brew
support group - LIST FILE HELP (Link is in the footer).
