Re: [pcgen] [pathfinder] [Trackered] Amulet of Natural Armor vs. Draconic Bloodline
Incorrect TYPE usage with Natural Armor <http://jira.pcgen.org/browse/DATA-77>
I've found the proper solution, just need to get the Silverback approval to put it in.
For the folks following at home, the simple solution is to take any of the 'TYPE=NaturalArmor.REPLACE'
(i.e. the ones supposed to be 'Enhancement Bonuses' and simply change it to
PCGen already supports this, the bonus will be included under the Natural Armor on the OS sheets.
Better yet, the Type Break Down should show your Base NaturalArmor & NaturalArmorEnhancement.
