Re: Re: [pcgen] Perform skill
- Well, I know that the rules lump all the performance skills together. As
a GM, you should just rule that they're separate skills and that players
need to take things separately. As for your prestige class, I think that
PCGEN would handle it perfectly as you need.

Perform (Singing) KEYSTAT:CHA EXCLUSIVE:NO
USEUNTRAINED:NO CLASSES:Bard|Rogue|Monk TYPE:Charisma.perform
Just for everyone else, I also added the following:
Perform (Untrained) KEYSTAT:CHA EXCLUSIVE:NO

until you have at least one rank in it. You can add more like it and
pick different Perform skills. You can also see the total of all
Perform skills if you need it. The (Untrained) version is nice for
performance skills the character does not know, but wants to try
