Re: choser to select FEAT or ABILITY?
- Ok, I think I get it now.
I kind of made BONUS:ABILITYPOOL to be CHOOSE:ABILITYPOOL in my head as it does give a choice like mechanic. But BONUS:ABILITYPOOL will only give you new abilities not alter ones you already have.
Am I correct that what you're trying to tell me, is that CHOOSE:ABILITY can't do that at the moment either so it can't be combined with something like BONUS:DC|%LIST|2 or BONUS:DAMAGE|%LIST|2 as things like DC and DAMAGE aren't properties of the ABILITY itself of of the things the ability grants?
But CHOOSE:FEAT using hidden feats would have the same problem, right?
So currently there is no good way to do something like
BONUS:DC|%LIST|2 CHOOSE:ABILITY|FooBarBlast choice or
BONUS:DC|%LIST|2 CHOOSE:ABILITY|TYPE=FooBarBlast or
for a hypotetical feat like Improved FooBarBlast DESC:Your FooBarBlast %1 now has a 2 higher DC|%CHOICE
And then for CHOOSE:ABILITY you either need an ABILITYCATEGORY "FooBarBlast choice" which can be an ABILITYLIST or have TYPE=FooBarBlast but then all abilities available for FooBarBlast need to have TYPE=FooBarBlast.

Thanks Drew, now to review errata and update my homebrew.
