Not supposed to be here today

So there's a new preview of the magic item book out: http://wizards.com/dnd/Article.aspx?x=dnd/4ex/20110819

It has new armor types, but each armor counts as a base type for the purposes of enchantments. However, proficiency with the base type doesn't give proficiency with the new type; there are seperate feats for that. It includes leather with the base AC of hide and chainmail that is light armor (again, with the base AC of hide). I'm just curious if this is going to be a problem in the builder; is there any way currently to make one type of armor count as another type for enchantments but not for proficiency? Is making a light armor version of chain at all problematic?

I'm looking it into right now. I think it might be possible to pull off.

Yeah, that's not too hard to do, although I'm not seeing the proficiency feats anywhere yet. Are they out yet?

Alright, as far as I can tell it might be tricky to have superior armour show up red in the shop if you lack proficiency with it: the LCB seems to base this on whether you're proficient with the armour category in question, so if you're proficient with chainmail, ring mail and banded mail will always show up "black" even if you lack their proficiency feats.

You do take the appropriate attack roll/Reflex penalty if you lack the proficiency feat, though, so in this respect it's working I'm just not sure it's possible to put these types of armour into a category of their own while still allowing them to receive the proper enchantments.

Yeah, she died, like, twenty minutes after that.


So are enchants and the colour of the armor tied to the same value?

Do weapons do it entirely differently? Because a superior weapon that is a heavy blade can get heavy blade enchants while people still lack proficiency with them.

Looks like it. The entry <specific name="Armor Category"> Plate </specific> seems to define which category a given type of armour actually belongs to, for the purpose of both available enchantments and determining its proficiency status in the shop. (Changing the item's internal category didn't seem to have an immediately apparent effect.)

It's really mostly a cosmetic issue more than anything because the actual penalties for lacking proficiency are handled separately and function as intended. Also noteworthy is that shields seem to work differently, because the barbed shield actually does show as red if you don't have the required feat.

But basically, superior armour right now is being treated as masterwork armour in most respects (if you're proficient with hide you're also proficient with earthhide etc. and they all qualify for the same enchantments), and I don't think there's any easy way of working around this. You could, in theory, go through all enchantments and separately add superior armour to the possible base items as appropriate, but...yeah, in theory at best.

Two things..
First: (i've mentioned this before) Hybrid Rangers are still unable to select Archery Mastery powers to swap out.
they can select the feat, they can select the Class option, but they can't finalise it by swapping a power on the retraining tab. No powers are listed.
I think its some where here:

<RulesElement name="Rapid Shot Mastery" type="Class Feature" internal-id="ID_CDJ_CLASS_FEATURE_34502" source="Player Essentials: Class Compendium">

<rules>
<replace power-replace="rapid shot:at-will,1" optional="true" />
</rules>
You gain Rapid Shot in place of a ranger at-will attack.
</RulesElement>

the replace states <replace power-replace="rapid shot:at-will,1" optional="true" />
but i think it should state that its a ranger or hybrid ranger at will.





Second: Martial Cross-Training is wrong for scouts, it should be listing RANGER powers, it only allows access to fighter powers.

we need to change this line <select type="Power" number="1" Category="$$LEVEL,ID_FMP_CLASS_3,encounter" /> to allows what ever the class's parent class is, not just ID_FMP_CLASS_3 for fighters.

</rules>
You lose one use of your power strike power. In exchange, you gain an encounter attack power of your choice. The power must be from your class and be of your level or lower.
</RulesElement>

thanks all...

Just a heads up that I am still going through all the feats and rewriting short descriptions to be more exact (yet hopefully still short enough). In many cases the short descriptions are missing entirely so I add them. This is slow work but I expect to finish it by the end of the month.

BTW, is there a way to tell the builder that my party has enough Stones of Light to give initiative bonus to my character? If not, maybe there should be an item that gives the set bonus to character.

I understand that everyone is busy, but the Renegade Red Wizard theme doesn't work quite right. I have an idea of how to get it to work, but as i don't have any skill in creating parts, i figured i'd merely give my theory. Since the theme has no utility powers and instead replaces the level 4 and 8 class features granted by the mage (secondary specialization school) why not add the features it grants as options for mages of those levels, but have them only show if the theme is selected. Also, the theme should make all other choices at those levels invisible/unchoosable, but again i have no clue how hard that would be to code in

There are bunch of outstanding issues. The Ranger thing has been brought up several times. I am not sure who designed the workflow for the ranger feats. Until it gets fixed you can use the house rule button to get your power card.

The Red Wizard theme is an oddity. Anytime you "drop" class features in the LCB you have to be very careful because you can never get them back. Even if a class feature mimics a feat or something dropping it causes any similar feat or power or feature not to work either and it is permanent for the character save file. So you have to tread lightly there. I have some ideas too but I need some time to try them out.

I am also helping "crash" CBLoader with updating testing. I don't know when it will be ready because like I said I am crashing, mostly. But stuff is in the works.

I'm not going to push out an update for this yet since YeOldeSteve is still in the middle of things, but as to the Archery Mastery problem, throw an "ID_FMP_CLASS_5," before the "at-will,1" line in the class features to fix the hybrid problem. I'll have to make a separate Martial-Cross training feat for Scouts. When it looks like we're back to a normal update regimen, I'll push the Ranger fixes through globally.

Hey guys.

Someone mentioned this on the bug list:

Bug List posted:

Heroes of the Fallen Lands: Currently the Thief class can choose from any Rogue and Skill utility powers at level 16. Like many of the Essentials classes, the Thief is supposed to automatically gain Slip From The Grasp at level 16, with no additional choice of powers.
I am not sure if it was always coded this way or if it was changed at some point. I am changing it to work as the book says but I just wanted to ask if there was any errata that allowed folks to choose other powers for these class feature defined powers. I don't believe so but I figured I would ask. I know on Page 55/57 it mentions the powers you get to "choose" but like the poster said I don't think this one counts.

You are correct. I think that if you don't want slip from the grasp, then you have to burn your retaining for that level to swap it out.

[b]changes to Rogue, Bugfix parts [b]
Thief class features (that are pretty superflous, like "gain an extra trick, gain this power, etc) have been suppressed on the character sheet.
Deft Blade also now correctly changes the Melee basic attack power card to reflect an attack vs AC or Reflex. (It also works with weapon finesse.)

I should probably add lines for each stat as it is possible someone could take melee training (any other stat), which might effect how I've implemnted this fix.

What other feats/class features allow you to sub in another stat for STR on an MBA?

Intelligent Blademaster, melee training, what else?

Quite honestly i hadn't read the article till today and I was just throwing something out there that possibly could get some creative thinking going on. Sometimes when I'm coding up part files the stupidest things pop up when I work on sections Ive never done before and sometimes as crazy as it seems they work. Example being, when i was coding the companion cards, the logical thinking was I could add changes in a rule with requirements and it would work, but as the requirements got larger and larger they no longer worked, but they all worked fine in feats with companion as the type (go figure).

Yep When i was writing this (that is a big issue) from what I understand Level 4 and 8 is restricted to Mage Only because it replaces the Class Feature still haven't figured out how to fully replace them at that level and not effect the levels afterwards.

Well, call me lazy or impatient if you like, but when I modify a single .part file, CBLoader often insists on merging every single one of them all over again, which always takes the better part of five minutes as such, I generally avoid trial-and-error unless there's absolutely no way around it.

Since it doesn't affect the calculation at all you could have just added a line to the Power Card for Melee Basic that said:

That would have been only one line in the feat. You don't have to change anything else.
Also, your change actually makes all basic melee attacks with any weapon target AC or Reflex per the way it is setup.

Did I mention that Conan the Barbarian was awesome? It was. Skip the 3D however. It was waste of $4 just like the 3D in Captain America. This Conan movie was actually more true to the legacy regarding pacing and feel of Conan than the Arnold movie was. Conan is a barbarian here. And it was nice to see him on a boat like he always should have been.

Yeah, I'm just fiddling with it right now, to see if I can't get it the way that I want. If it doesn't work out, I'll just do it like the "X Style" feats, and insert it on it's own line.

Too clever by half, it seems.

EDIT: Conanchat: I thought the movie was alright, but not enough character development.

I've think I've got it working. Although a fair criticism of the way that I've done it is if you take multiple MBA changing powers (no idea, but you could), then the power doesn't like that very much.

Well, call me lazy or impatient if you like, but when I modify a single .part file, CBLoader often insists on merging every single one of them all over again, which always takes the better part of five minutes as such, I generally avoid trial-and-error unless there's absolutely no way around it.

By all means I in no way think you are lazy LOL, and I too understand the wait while loading files.

Holy Cow Turd Batman! I am impressed.

Many thanks to the CBLoader team for their work on this. It is much appreciated!

Bug to be fixed.

Hymn of Resurgence (cleric level 3 encounter attack)

the Effect entry should read: Each ally in the blast can choose either to gain 5 temporary hit points or to make a saving throw.

It currently reads each ally in the burst.

Muay Thai is great but Buttscoot-Shin-to-Balls Style is undeniably better.


Bug Fixes:

BugFixes.part
Deft Blade and Piercing Pick now put text on to the melee basic card. They should also output the change to the Attack line correctly too (Str vs. AC or Ref/Fort, and it should account for melee training or other MBA alternate stat things)

Cleric.part
Hymn of resurgence typo has been fixed.

EDIT:
Wizard.part
Suppressed Magic missile, spellbook and Cantrip selection on the Character sheet to bring those in line with the other "grant Power" class features of the mage.

I think the code you referenced will work as intended for the Oghma domain only when the PC's Int bonus is zero. We need to replace Int with Wis, not add Int and Wis together.
So this seems to work, as far as completely replacing Int with Wis for the skills affected by the Oghma domain:
code:

You can use Wisdom instead of Intelligence when making an Intelligence-based skill check.
	In addition, when you use healing word, each ally in the burst gains a +1 bonus to the next saving throw he or she makes before the end of your next turn.
	You also gain the following powers.

This still doesn't address the character being marked as "Status: houseruled" as soon as the Oghma domain is applied. Incidentally, the same happens with the Selune and Torm domains, but not with the Corellon domain. I haven't dug far enough into that to figure out what's fundamentally different between the new domains, but something's wonky in the NWCG code in the 10-cleric.part file

I'm just creating new warpriest characters and they are not showing up as houseruled.

Can you try creating a brand new oghma warpriest to see if that comes up houseruled?

EDIT:
Changes to Rogue.part

Thieves were incorrectly getting Fading Retreat (a master thief pp utility) at level 16 instead of Slip from the Grasp. That has now been resolved.

Holy smokes! Thanks for the catch Drew. I had been staring at the screen too long when fixed that this morning.

Aye. That is probably a good idea. I will upload a copy.

I load the builder from scratch, start a new character, select Warpriest as the class and either Oghma, Selune, or Torm as the domain. Voila! instant "Status: houseruled".
