Re: SA that adds 4 ranks to a skill - HOW?
- I figured out what was causing the choose dialog to not appear.
Apparently combining the Intelligence and !SPECIAL on the TYPE= part
of the choose made pcgen think that there were no qualifying feats
(which there are). So I removed the !SPECIAL and it works. Now all I
have to figure out is how to exclude SPECIAL type feats and feats in
which the character already has ranks.
Ps. the use of %LIST in the feats file also didn't work, it should be
