      I'm asking because I'm trying to create a familiar-ish creature. I
      have BONUS:STAT|STR|2 on the MASTERBONUSRACE line for a creature and
      it's not showing up under the master. Are certain things prohibited on
      this tag? I don't see this one at all in my 5.8 documentation.

        the rsrd_companionmods.lst show:

          ... Not sure if you can do that, but a good place to start would be the TYPE tag. TYPEs cannot have spaces. :) Barak

            tag.

                ... The problem may be that the race you specified does not exist in the files. I don t know what you are using but in the RSRD set there is a Bear (Black) ,

                  The problem may be that the race you specified does not exist in the files. I don't know what
                  you are using but in the RSRD set there is a "Bear (Black)", "Bear (Brown)" and "Bear (Polar)"
                  but no "Bear". The MASTERBONUSRACE tag may need an exact name.
