[PF] Homebrew - Scimitar + 2 + INT MOD

Postby hal9000 » Thu Dec 07, 2017 11:43 am

Hi All,

I'm new to this site. Please let me know if I have done anything wrong and I will attempt to correct.

I'm trying to define a +2 Scimitar that uses INT modifier rather than STR modifier.

I have never made a custom item before, but started by creating a custom item through PcGen, based on a +2 Scimitar.

In my character PCG file I can see this:


Is it relatively easy to do what I wish ?
May I please be shown how to make the file changes?

Character: 11th level Magus
PcGen version 6.07.05
Background:Software developer for past 30+ years.

Kind regards

Welcome to the forums & PCGen community!

What is made by the internal customizer isn't want you want to use as a basis for what your custom data.

Here are some video's on making data, specifically lesson #1 and #6 ... -8q5IT-klM

Here's the documentation and there are List File Classes that are still pretty accurate, if dated.

Thanks for the advice.
I'll watch the videos and give it a go.
I realised the internal customiser wouldn't do the complete job, but I thought it might get me partly there, and I could edit the files to complete the job. I'm probably mistaken, but thought it worth a shot.
