internal variable? Yes, it does make things better because it is
consistent with the naming schema in the game however it's not a far
jump from "will" to "willpower" and it obviously hasn't been a big
This is a case where someone did what is normally the right thing (fix
a typo) but had the cascade effect of screwing up a lot of stuff (e.g.
all homebrew class LST files and any 3rd party R/SRD lst files).
Welcome to the twilight zone, coders, where the legacy attached to
cruft may outweigh the value in fixing an error. May god have mercy
on your code library.

use interchangeably with CMP and R/SRD. Now you have to maintain 2
different sets. Though admittedly there's not a big chance of that
but it could happen, especially if someone puts each class in its own

the SRD files. You should be using the PHB/DMG/MM sets from CMP as
well as whatever "addons" you're using.
It's that mixing of SRD and non-SRD (and PHB/DMG/MM in this context
are non-SRD as they're the CMP renditions of those books) that will
always always be a pain/nightmare/bugfest.
