[35e] WotC / Races of Stone - Goliath

Postby r_kaiza » Sun Jun 12, 2016 8:23 pm

Hi good people,

I am trying to add the Goliath as found in Races of Stone to my campaign. I followed the lessons here until I got to the special abilities. Goliaths have a couple of racial powers and special qualities, but I was unsure on the best way to add them.

At first I tried to replicate what the rsrd_races.lst does, but I got lost. I understand that rsrd_abilitycategories and rsrd_abilities_race play a role but I just could not trace the various calls back to the source. The alternative would be to follow what's in the lesson and use the SA tag, but where would the full description actually go?

Thank you,

k.

Wow thanks, I swear I had used the Search function of the boards before posting, though.

We don't host Closed Content. I meant a quick GOOGLE search on the world wide web.

Can I ask one more thing... I understand the race entry and also the "Race Traits ~ Goliath" bit, but how does the programme know that the race traits are the various abilities listed below (Powerful Build etc.)? Is it because of the ".Goliath Race Trait" modifier in their TYPE section? Also, why does "Race Traits ~ Goliath" not have a KEY descriptor?

Thank you,

k.

Wow, I completely missed this reply...

ABILITY:xxx|AUTOMATIC|TYPE=Blah

with TYPE:Blah is what adds the abilities.

Lack of key is because it is never seen by the player. It's a holder ability.

Hi there good people,

I am trying to add the
Learn more about goliathas found in Races of Stone to my campaign. I complied with the lessons below up until I reached the special capacities. Goliaths have a few racial powers and also unique high qualities, but I was unclear on the very best way to include them.

In the beginning I aimed to duplicate just what the rsrd_races. lst does, however I obtained shed. I comprehend that rsrd_abilitycategories and rsrd_abilities_race contribute however I just might not map the different recall to the resource. The alternative would be to follow exactly what's in the lesson and use the SA tag, but where would the full description actually go?

Thank you,

Reinventing the wheel is fun... Have you taken a look at what other homebrewers have created?

Probably easier than redoing them all. But if you want, I'll be available off/on for the next hour, and then sporadically in the evening tomorrow if you want to chat live over on hipchat. Let me know.

Cheers,
