Re: [pcgen] Want to get re-started
- On a quick scan I did not see a reply to your message so here it goes.
Yes CMP (http://www.codemonkeypublishing.com) does offer all of the WotC
sources for a price. Yes, their site does exist, but it appears that
they have been having a lot of server problems over the past week.
The only problem is that the 3.5 sources from CMP are not yet complete.
However, there is free support built into PCGen via the RSRD (Revised
System Reference Document). The RSRD is basically all of the "open"
non-intellectual property information from the SRD. This means that
there are some monster races that are not available, some spell names
may have been abbreviated or changed, and Dieties do not exist.
I hope this helps.
