      birthday cards ('useless entertainment'). etc.
      I will try to send it tonight (after the DND game).
      I will try the bonus--I did figure out I could make it direct, but it just
      increases the Base instead of showing a plus for the item.

      Ernie,
      I seem to be unable to download your pcg file. All I get is "N",
      which I would guess to be the first letter of your character's name
      (Nemo). If you're unable to post it here, go ahead and upload the
      file to the Bugs and Features folder so it doesn't clutter up the
      main Files page.

      As far as magic items go, they can all use the BONUS: tag which is
      documented near the bottom of the readme.html.
      So the BONUS: tag for a Longsword of Willpower +2 could look like
      this:
      BONUS:COMBAT|TOHIT,DAMAGE|2[tab]BONUS:CHECKS|Willpower|2
      (I just can't type a tab in here, so don't actually type [tab]!)

      -Bryan

          Well, when you remove all the Fighter levels and simply close the
          Martial weapon choice window you end up with 205 feats.
          The same problem exists when adding and removing a fighter level (the
          first fighter level) to another char. even if you remove the Martial
          weapon proficiencies manually it gives you a wrong number of feats
          remaining...

              I had to remove the magic item references (since they're unique to
              your lst files and not in mine) and remove the line-feeds that the
              post put in unnecessarily, then I was able to import your character.
              I think the problem stems from the fact that your pcg file indicates
              that you have 186 martial weapon proficiencies - whereas there aren't
              that many possiblilities. When you click on a feat I add the number
              of feats you have remaining plus the number of selections you have
              with regards to that feat. After you make your selections I then
              select the new number of selections from the previous sum (for feats
              you can take multiple times, obviously). So I'm adding the number of
              feats you have +186 and subtracting the number of selections you made
              (there are what, about 30 of them?) granting you an increase on the
              order of 150 or so feats. The obvious question then is, how did you
              get so many martial weapon proficiencies?
              What version of PCGen did you create this character with - and if you
              re-create this character from scratch (forget the magic items, they
              don't figure into this bug anyway) with the current release do you
              get this bug? I just did some correcting of the feat-counting logic,
              so I'm hoping that if you create this character from scratch this bug
              will go away. You can tell if you'll have the bug by looking in the
              pcg file - the number just after the Martial Weapon Proficiency entry
              is how many of the next :: delimiters refer to sub-selections for
              that feat. If it's over 30 (or whatever, certainly 186 is a
              giveaway!) then this bug resides in the current version of PCGen and
              must be squashed. :)

                tool in Java.. and he was showing me how he developed and used classes...
                I downloaded the first zip file, probably 1-26. Seems like it was 1.2. I
                should still have the original somewhere. Maybe.
                I made my own drow class by modifying the Elf(sun) class. You ahve since
                added drow, and that may be part or all the problem. He only cares about 2
                martial weapons, or 3. Scimitar, dagger and crossbow.
                Whatever broought this on, probably is fixed, since I cannot duplicate it.
                However, there is still an issue with signs. Take away two levels, get -2
                feats, remove 1, and you have an additional: what should become -1 becomes
                1.
                I will try two ways: one the same as this, but using current release.
                Then try fighter only, since I do not need any additional rogue skills.

                Thanks.
