        Hey - that sounds good. I don't think I have anything like that in my
        Features Requests.txt file (Bugs and Features folder in the Files
        page). I don't handle the bonus spells for being a Specialist OR for
        domains yet, so some thought needs to be put into that - I'd prefer
        it was a solution that worked for both. Your suggestion would work
        for mosts cases, but not cases where a Domain bonus spell wasn't
        normally available to clerics (or of the same spell level). Maybe a
        meta-magic button? I'm not sure what would be convenient there - I'm
        open to suggestions!

          It should default to the method on pages 19-20 in the DMG
          however. Since this is in the rules and is official for the
          RPGA. It's also become a standard in most PBeM and online
          games. As well as reached wide acceptance in home games if
          web-forum discussions are any indication.

          Also note that currently it is the number one asked for
          feature. So it might be good to boost it up a little on the
          priority scale. :)


          8 Base.
          1 point each for 9 to 14.
          2 points for 15 and 16
          3 points for 17 and 18

          And likely +1 point per 2 after that.

          18 is the max starting base attribute. : ) so the +1 per two after would be moot. 8 Base. 1 point each for 9 to 14. 2 points for 15 and 16 3 points for 17 and
