I considered setting it up like favored enemy but im at a loss for how the CHOOSE/CHOICE works, which one is apropriate etc. And when looking at the Ranger Favored enemy code, there isn't a mention of choice/choose. it seems to just do what it is supposed to do. I've seen another post about shifter's from a couple of years ago. but it didn't identify with this specific problem and i expect i may run into this with other races as well. I'm lost and would greatly appreciate any help.
