    PFRPG Upgrade NPC Actions Extension

    This extension replaces NPC spell effects with those from PFRPG - Spellbook. This happens automatically when you click the 'add encounter' button.

    Extension Homepage and Readme

    Bug Tracker and Suggestions

    To avoid my threads taking over the PF1e subforum, I publish most updates in my combo thread (with only major updates in this individual thread which is primarily for discussion and bug reports).

    Future plans:
    Adding automation for NPC feats/abilities like Power Attack, Breath Weapons, Etc. Will probably use tahl_liadon's recurring effects: monsters and (n)pc abilities for creating these abilities.

    Can you elaborate on what precisely the extension does? So, when I have actions for an NPC, then it searches for the names of spells there to overwrite the defined actions?

    You're spot on.

    Because the actions are usually created by the (woefully inadequate) parser, the PFRPG - Spellbook module includes pre-defined actions.
    This makes leveling up characters a breeze, but requires you to manually re-add all NPC spells if you want to replicate that polished experience.

    I copy actions of the type "effect" from the spell in the module to the same spell on the NPC after deleting any actions of the type "effect" that the parser has created. This makes prep a lot easier for automation-focused GMs

    I have marked the small amount of code that I added with "-- bmos replacing spell effects"

    Nice I was only wondering whether some extra action is needed (besides having the module), but seemingly not then (which is good )

    This saves a lot of time for prepping encounters!

    Things like this should be built in... ;-)

    I edited function called by the "add encounter" button on the encounters sheet.

    Upgrade NPC Actions v1.1
    Now brings over all actions (except saves if saves already exist).
    Better spell name detection
    A fix for NPCs without spellsets causing script error

    Coming soon to an effects library near you, tooltips!:

    This doesn't have anything to do with the rest of this extension, but it seemed like the most fitting place for it (I didn't really want to make another extension just for that...)

    EDIT: Upgrade NPC Actions v1.2 is now available with this helpful little feature

    Does this is compatible with 5e or it is exclusive for the mentioned settings?

    No idea. No sure what benefit it would have in 5e since PFRPG-Spellbook only has Pathfinder spells in it.
