[DATA BUG] Mage Armor stacking with armor Armor bonuses
- View SourceI noticed this at the game table when a character's AC didn't add up
properly. Believing I coded something wrong in my campaign .lst files I
checked them and the RSRD files and found the stacking problem seemed to
be in the RSRD files.
Tested with a generic PC in 5.10.1:
RSRD.pcc only; 1st level human fighter; equip armor (Half plate in this
case); apply Mage Armor temp bonus and PCGen calculates an armor bonus
rsrd_spells.lst codes Mage Armor's armor bonus as:
rsrd_equip_armorshields.lst codes Half-Plate's bonus as:
The documentation says that REPLACE causes a special sort of stacking,
which seems to be the problem. Comparing to the Bracers of Armor in
rsrd_equip_wondrousitems.lst it seems that at least Mage Armor should
not have a .REPLACE on it.
As an aside, is there a reason all the shields, bardings, and armors all
use the .REPLACE tag? I found TYPE=Armor.REPLACE used in the +X magic
bonuses and the Ironwood (+1) material, but those should be Enhancement
bonuses to AC. I admit I might be reading the tags wrong, but it looks
like they're coded as Armor bonuses.
