Re: [pcgen] Re: [Pathfinder] [Core] [Race] [Vision]
Uhg, we slipped into LST coding, we really should move this over to the PCGen List File Help
section. Please follow up over there.
It shouldn't be cross-polluting, but if it's the case:
If that works, then you have a bug.

As per the description from Paizo, low-light races "can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light." And since how far a human can see is subjective to visibility and line-of-sight, no real number value can be assigned.
