...and yes, I know "arrows come in quivers"...but not in my realm. ;)

I have created an item called a Quiver. This item holds 20 arrows or
20 bolts. Here is the LST file entry:

{ Quiver
TYPE:Goods.Container.Quiver
COST:0.5
WT:0.2
CONTAINS:20|Arrow=20|Bolt=20 }

If I have 20 arrows or 20 bolts (individually), then all is well in
the realm as I can only put 20 of either one in the quiver.

If I put 20 arrows in it, I can still put 20 bolts in it (for a total
of 40 items).

If I have "Arrows (20)", then I can put multiple sets into the quiver,
making it so each quiver is holding 400 arrows (Quiver of Holding
anyone?).

Here are the valid things to go into the quiver:
-- any combination of bolts or arrows for a total of 20.
-- 1 set of "Arrows (20)".

How can I code this correctly?

Thanks.

Quiver
TYPE:Goods.Container.Quiver
COST:0.5
WT:0.2
CONTAINS:20|Arrow=20|Bolt=20|Total=20

> -- 1 set of "Arrows (20)".

Suggestion:

Arrows (20).DELETE

Problem solved. :)

Arrows (20) is an archaic construct from back before you could
right-click and buy/move 20 arrows at once.

Ahhhh....Total=20....that's what I was missing.

Oh, and here I thought it was for buying a "set of 20 with a quiver"
type of thing.... *shrug*

So each individual arrow comes with a quiver now? *grin*

Thanks for the info, can the "Arrows (20).DELETE" go in any of the

move from a position I've taken, but I always listen to people's
ideas (and often run them by Eric Beaudoin who has a radically
different viewpoint than myself on a lot of issues.)

Which sources were you looking to do that to? A customization PCC
sort of thing, or some specific book? It needs to be in the SRD set
since that is how the SRD actually lists them.

Actually, I'm fine with just removing them from my equipment lists
(and the data sets I give out to my players).

Ideally, if I can have it in my own LST file (kdcEquipment.lst) it
would be great, but when I tried that, it didn't seem to work. I also
tried it in the customsources data files and it didn't seem to work
there. I'll be honest though and admit that I haven't read the docs
on this tag...so I'll go look there (unless that's not going to be
useful).

I know I could just delete it from the LST file, but if I can have one
of my sets remove it, that would be ideal (then I wouldn't have to try
and remember all my mods later...).

Thanks.

That did work. Great. :)

Thanks.

And for anyone else wondering (and lurking), it can go in any of the
loaded source files (I put it in my own equipment.lst file) and it
took effect.

There is, however, a .FORGET tag that should take care of things. In your
custom equipment list, put Arrows (20).FORGET, and they should be gone.
