[Pathfinder] Occult Bestiary - Adding Template - Prana Ghost

Postby Fresnel » Tue Jun 27, 2017 6:46 pm

I am having a go at adding a template for a prana ghost: http://www.d20pfsrd.com/bestiary/monste ... rana-cr-1/

This is my attempt so far:

###Block: Prana Ghost Template
# Template Name Hit Dice Size Challenge Rating Visible Source Page Define Bonus Ability Pool Bonus to HP Bonus to skill Stat bonus Modify VAR Class Skill Ability Move Main Race Type Race Subtype
Prana Ghost HITDIE:10|CLASS.TYPE=PC CR:1 TEMPLATE:Celestial VISIBLE:Yes DEFINE:NoTypeTraits|0 DEFINE:Maneuverability|0 BONUS:ABILITYPOOL|Ghost Ability|(CR-3)/3 BONUS:HP|CURRENTMAX|CHA-CON BONUS:SKILL|Perception,Sense Motive,Stealth|8|TYPE=Racial BONUS:STAT|Dex|4 BONUS:STAT|Con|4 BONUS:STAT|Wis|2 BONUS:VAR|NoTypeTraits|1 CSKILL:Acrobatics|Bluff|Craft|Diplomancy|Intimidate|Knowledge (planes)|Perception|Sense Motive|Stealth|Use Magic Device ABILITY:Special Ability|AUTOMATIC|Living Prana|Dazing Touch|Flight Maneuverability|Rejuvenation|Astral Step MOVE:Fly,30 RACETYPE:Outsider RACESUBTYPE:Incorporeal ABILITY:FEAT|AUTOMATIC|Alertness|Improved Initiative|Toughness

Can someone spare a few minutes to point out my (probably obvious) mistakes.

I am also unsure where to add the new abilities: Living Prana and Dazing Touch. Which LST file are they put...?

Cheers

So, spaces don't work between Tags. Each new line with indent is a TAB SPACE (Set to 6 for pcgen lst files by the way)

Code: Select all
Prana Ghost
   HITDIE:10|CLASS.TYPE=PC
   CR:1
   TEMPLATE:Celestial
   DEFINE:NoTypeTraits|0
   DEFINE:Maneuverability|0
   BONUS:ABILITYPOOL|Ghost Ability|(CR-3)/3
   BONUS:HP|CURRENTMAX|CHA-CON
   BONUS:SKILL|Perception,Sense Motive,Stealth|8|TYPE=Racial
   BONUS:STAT|DEX|4
   BONUS:STAT|CON|4
   BONUS:STAT|WIS|2
   BONUS:VAR|NoTypeTraits|1|TYPE=Base
   CSKILL:Acrobatics|Bluff|TYPE=Craft|Diplomacy|Intimidate|Knowledge (planes)|Perception|Sense Motive|Stealth|Use Magic Device
   ABILITY:Special Ability|AUTOMATIC|Prana Ghost ~ Living Prana|Prana Ghost ~ Dazing Touch|Prana Ghost ~ Rejuvenation|Prana Ghost ~ Astral Step
   MOVE:Fly,30
   RACETYPE:Outsider
   RACESUBTYPE:Incorporeal
   ABILITY:FEAT|AUTOMATIC|Alertness|Improved Initiative|Toughness


# Ability File: Each line is complete, unlike the above where I did a new line for readability.
Code: Select all
Living Prana   KEY:Prana Ghost ~ Living Prana   CATEGORY:Special Ability   TYPE:SpecialQuality   DESC:Something goes here describing this ability.
Dazing Touch   KEY:Prana Ghost ~ Dazing Touch   CATEGORY:Special Ability   TYPE:SpecialAttack   DESC:Something goes here describing this ability.
Rejuvenation   KEY:Prana Ghost ~ Rejuvenation   CATEGORY:Special Ability   TYPE:SpecialQuality   DESC:Something goes here describing this ability.
Astral Step      KEY:Prana Ghost ~ Astral Step      CATEGORY:Special Ability   TYPE:SpecialQuality   DESC:Something goes here describing this ability.

Oh, and just to let you know. That if you don't have BONUS:VAR|Maneuverability|1 or more, you aren't setting the flight maneuverability to anything more than clumsy. And I coded the flight stuff to kick in if you had a Fly speed. You don't have to add it, which is why I removed it. In fact, DEFINE:Maneuverability|0 doesn't need to be present as it's predefined for you on all races.

Hope that helps!

Loaded smooth as butter.

One small thing. How do I add the (Su) and (Ex) indicators to the abilities?

P.S. It should be Fly 30' (perfect). I have set BONUS:VAR|Maneuverability|4

One issue I have seen, but cannot figure out how to fix.

"Armor Class: A prana ghost gains a deflection bonus to AC equal to its Wisdom modifier instead of the Charisma-based bonus the incorporeal ability normally provides."

How do you remove the Cha based DB and add the Wis DB?

(Su) and (Ex) are added by typing Supernatural or Extraordinary in the Ability TYPE. TYPE:SpecialQuality.Extraordinary as an example.

BONUS:COMBAT|AC|max(WIS,CHA)-CHA|TYPE=Deflection should do the trick.

Needed to put this tag after the incorporeal tag, but all is working now.

Thanks for the assistance.

Back again.

One thing I missed:

"Attacks: A prana ghost keeps the base creature’s natural and unarmed attacks. These attacks automatically count as if they had the ghost touch property and add the prana ghost’s Wisdom bonus to damage rolls (or 1/2 its Wisdom bonus for off-hand attacks and secondary weapons, but no additional damage for single primary natural attacks or the like). If the creature could wield weapons in life, it can wield ghost touch weapons as a prana ghost."

So how do I change Unarmed Attack from +Str to + Wisdom?

BONUS:COMBAT|DAMAGE|????

max(STR,WIS)-STR will probably work better for the bonus. Or maybe just WIS-STR, if WIS will always be higher.
