which has no WotC IP. This list is about being able to ask for help
running the program, reporting bugs, and asking for features and
What the person was asking for was WotC IP.
He was also asking a coding issue.
A coding issue should be asked, in generic format, on the coding list.
A WotC IP issue should be asked on the Code Monkey Publishing forum
on the CMP site.
These are the rules as have been set down for this list by the
creators and maintainers of this list.
Hence, krazhit was correct in his response.
Zen Archery is from a Builder Book, and hence, is WotC IP, and should
not be discussed here.
