      Hi,

      Could you send me a sample character or two please? I'd like to try this
      one out myself. Either send it via direct email, or open a help jira at
      http://jira.pcgen.org please.

      Cheers,
      James.

        I've been having the same issue. I used James' instructions and managed
        to add my new source (a homebrew for our game's house rules), but it's a
        torturous path for a simple requirement. Has anyone thought of a
        method/function to do an 'add/delete source' to an existing character?

        Pete
