However, that's not working for me. I copied the Rogue class entries
into my bespoke lst files and edited its name to Brogue. then I changed
1<tab>FEATAUTO:Simple Weapon Proficiency|Rogue Weapon Proficiencies|All Automatic Proficiencies
1<tab>ABILITY:FEAT|AUTOMATIC|Simple Weapon Proficiency|Rogue Weapon Proficiencies|All Automatic Proficiencies
With the first line th Brogue gets all the rogue abilties as you would
expect. With the second it gets bugger all. Can someone else confirm
this to be true with their latest code?
