        Hi,

        The witch spells are there for me...

        They are defined in the pfapg_spells_mods.lst file - you might want to
        check that you have the current pcc file and that it has a reference to
        that file.

        Oh and which version of pcgen are you using? I tested it in 5.16.3 and
        the current trunk code.

        Cheers,
        James.
