Re: [PCGenListFileHelp] Re: Alternatate class features and substitution levels
A few methods come to mind, it depends on how thorough you want:
Set an ability or Template that grants everything else based upon the level of the originating class
- which can negate the other class abilities if needed. See "Archetypes" in Pathfinder to see how
this was implemented.
You don't need to even implement a substitution class, you just take the ability.
ACF is set up so you can implement it the same way as Archetypes.
