Re: [PCGenListFileHelp] Re: Can you have MULT:NO with a CHOOSE?
- View SourceHi,
1) CHOOSE:NUMCHOICES=x doesn't work with STRING
2) You need to preselect the Choice if directly granted since a chooser won't pop up, instead you
need to use BONUS:ABILITYPOOL|x|1
In the ABILITYPOOL you'll want to have the Preselected on a PRExxx
Imbue Unarmed Strike Choice CATEGORY:Internal TYPE:YourAbilityPoolType
CHOOSE:STRING|Flaming|Frost|Ghost Touch|Shock|Thundering ABILITY:Special Ability|AUTOMATIC|Imbued
Unarmed Strike(Flaming)|PREABILITY:1,CATEGORY=Internal,Imbue unarmed Strike Choice(Flaming)
Repeat for each type. As to the SpecialQuality vs. SpecialAttack, it affects an opponent, I'd call
it an Attack myself.
