Re: Revisiting regional feats
- For the campaign book I'm working on, I handled the Regions a bit
differently. Not a criticism - just a different way.
I used Templates. One for the main, overlying region, which then
makes them pick subregions which are also templates. By assigning
region and subregions on the appropriate template lines, I could use
PREREGION and PRESUBREGION all over the place.
As for your cleric issue, a PREMULT would be the way to go.

- Sorry it was at Mr. Maitlands suggestion I used abilities.
I really could still use some help on the stuff in this thread. I'm
diligently workingon deities and domains while work on the regional
feats is stalled.
Any help appreciated.
Also, if anyone is interested, I'm running a 3.5 game on Fantasy
Grounds using PCGen as the character system. Contact me if you want
- You can use either method... the results are the same.
Send me a private email, or jump on AIM/YAHOO/MSN/IRC (whatever medium
you prefer) and I can help you finish your project...
Oooh goodie a game eh?
Though I prefer the free method - Fantasy Grounds is nice... rptools has
a nice free mapping program we use for our games.

- Fantasy grounds II integrates nicely with PCGen. I ran my first session
(first DMing in years, first 3.5 ever) and the combination and FGII and
PCGen and Skype worked exceptionally well.
