      Hi all,

      I want to code up an unusual feat and don't have the foggiest idea of where to start...or even if this is the sort of thing that would be possible to code.

      This feat reduces the "cost" of all/any metamagic feats by one level. But

      * only on spells of one school (chosen when you select the feat)
      * that school can only be your specialty school or a school that you already have Spell Focus in
      * can only be used 3 times per day

      Yes, this feat can be selected as a wizard bonus feat. (Can be taken more than once, but different school each time.)

      I've been using the PCGen spell memorization feature, so it would be nice to implement this feat.

      Thoughts?

      Thanks,
      Allen

          Hi,

          Okay, the tag that controls the level is this:

          ADDSPELLLEVEL:

          I don't know if it'll take a negative integer though. Only testing it will achieve that. What you
          probably need is to request a FREQ, "Allow ADDSPELLLEVEL to take a variable" and then we'd add
          "+GlobalSpellLevelAdjustment" to that, and your feat would do 'BONUS:VAR|GlobalSpellLevelAdjustment|-1'.

          Next up, I'm not aware of Restricting selections, that will have to be enforced by GM and Player.

          What you can do is

          CHOOSE:FEAT=Spell Focus
          MULT:YES
          SELECT:1
          STACK:NO
          [That will select any Spell Focus choice the character already has]

          DESC:Usable 3/day, you may apply this feat to your specialty school or spell focus.
          [Add anything else you want know about your feat here]

          That would work perfect if Spell Focus as a Feat was already granted to Specialists. However, I
          doubt they get it, so the alternate method would be:

          CHOOSE:USERINPUT|TITLE="Choose a School of Focus or Specialty you possess"

          LIMITATIONS:
          PCGen won't enforce the School
          PCGen won't enforce the Times per day

          I hope that helps.

          Cheers,
