Re: KNOWNSPELLS vs. spell list in classspells.lst
- What they are saying, Allen, is that instead of a Paladin having to

level. This piece of code simply tells PCGen that the Paladin class
does not have to "learn" spells and to go ahead and list all spells
labeled Paladin by the lst files in the Spells tab.
