Guy- I ended up just creating a formal in the "Miss" line. For example, I would write On miss, half-damage is: [(1MHW+Int)*.5]

Looks good! I bet even better if you have player chat icons disabled in preferences.


I like the icon showing, especially since half the time I can't pronounce the name :)

Agreed - flavour text stands out in this format.

oh thanks, i tried [1MHW+Int/2] and it kept setting it to ["1MHW+Int/2"] for whatever reason and bugging out the power

i only know enough about macros to screw myself over :mrgreen:

huh I'm running into a really weird bug where it keeps replacing the name of a player characters class with "Weapon" or "Armor"

That's decidedly odd. Can you isolate what you're doing when it happens (e.g., change it back, and see if you can figure out what macros you run to make it occur)? Most likely what's happening is that I used "Class" as a local variable, which I should not have done because it's a token property. But I don't know where to look.

isolated it, its a conflict between Rumble Slim and Plothos Inventory

opening the inventory changes the class name

odd, because this is the only problem ive run into with them

Huh. Plothos must use "class" as a local variable somewhere. Solutions...aren't easy. You'll either have to edit my framework or Plothos' to remove the reference to class. All things considered, it might be easier to change my framework - I don't think Class is reference anywhere but in the AC formula, in Edit Character, and in rfw.charSheet, whereas in Plothos Inventory it might be a fundamental part of the inventory system.

  • Is it as simple as changing "Class" to something like "CharClass"?
  • Where is the AC formula? Is it in the campaign macro "Fix Formulas"?
  • Is the 'class == "Fighter"' line in the Execute Power macro also related to this?
  • What is the purpose of rfw.CharSheetb and rfw.CharSheetC? Backups?



When I delete Class Features, it removes the macro but doesn't update the character sheet. It doesnt remove the Swordmage Aegis macro. (I only tested this with the marking features)

It should be that simple - you just have to make sure to change every reference to it in the framework, and make sure there are no references to charClass used as local variables. It's not easy to change property names.

The AC formula is the one found either in Campaign Properties, or in the Fix Formulas macro.

As for the fighter thing, that was to automate fighter's marks, but I think I'm going to take it out because the fighter actually chooses to mark, so I'm going to leave that in the hands of the player/user. And the charSheetB/charSheetc are just backups while I was playing with the character sheet layout and features.

And finally, I"ll check out the class feature thing and make sure it's deleting properly.

Really, plothos ought to modify the inventory system not to use the word "class" - since that's not exactly an uncommon term in game systems, and drop-in tools ought to be insulated from requiring any property changes to the frameworks they're used in.
