I am working in a homebrew campaign set for the next version of the WotC Dungeons and Dragons, I really doubt that we have permissions to do that publicly, but there is nothing improper if I do it for myself.

My question is, there is a bonus called "Proficiency Bonus" or PB that is applied to combat and certain checks and skills, it starts with 2 in level one up to level four and increases by one each four levels. I have been trying to make a formula that compute the  correct PB for all levels and cannot figured it out.

So far I tried (TL+5)/4 rounded down, but it does not applies for the lower levels.

Thanks

• Should it be (TL+7)/4? That would give +2 at level 1, +3 at level 5, and an extra +1 per four levels after. DS/DL

• There s supposed to be some sort of license for it, but it s not going to be announced for something like a year. The announcement seemed to stress fan-made
Message 4 of 14 , Jul 12, 2014
There's supposed to be some sort of license for it, but it's not going to be announced for something like a year.  The announcement seemed to stress fan-made material, so there is speculation that for-profit companies wouldn't be able to use it.  I suppose we'll find out.

• Hi Chris, That was my first thought but then I verified the progression. The PB doesnÆt increase to +3 until 5th level. 2+(TL/4) would reach +3 at 4th. Doug

Thanks for your answers, the previous solution (TL+7)/4 actually works fine, it gives the wanted results since the progression starts in 2 in level one and increases by one in levels 5, 9, 13, and 17.

There is a loooot of work to do to make a viable character, but I am working hard toward it, I will publish later if I have any success.

Thank you all again

Hi Thaldorf

PCGen does not have permission to include any D&D Next material in its distribution.

I believe WotC has announced that they will announce its plans for its D&D Next equivalent to the OGL/GSL sometime next year and until they do we do not know if permissions will even be possible.

That said, the Data Monkey’s here, and more specifically on the PCGen LST File Help group, can help provide some guidance to any interested users on how to code the material up themselves.
