Re: Editing phbclass.lst file
- The Bardic music stuff is for his Music ability, which is Super
natural or Spell-like depending on which one he uses. Be sure to
leave the DEFINE for the VAR there, too.
To remove casting from a class:
The casting stuff you want to remove is the CAST, KNOWN, and the
Spell type/spell stat. The biggest change (exactly what you are
looking for) is change the SS from CHA to None (Spell Stat) and ST
(Spell Type) from Arcane to None. It's the 6th and 7th fields on the
first line. Neither one has a tag in front. Bard doesn't have it,
but if a class has a CASTAS, flag, you would want to also remove it.
The MEMORIZE flag should also go away, as that is for spotaneous vs.
prepared. Any class that had the SPELLBOOK flag you would also want
to remove (to remove spellcasting). SPELLSKNOWN too. All but the
CAST and KNOWN are on the first line.
