    PF2 - Wishlist Item

    As I go through and create a detailed spell list entries for the all-in-one, drag-n-drop module, I am coming across a lot of necessary repetitiveness where entries for heightened spells have to be replicated for each level to ensure the powers at that level are accurate for use.

    Example: Grim Tendrils. At level 1, it's a 2d4 negative damage spell with 1 (or 2) persistent bleed (with saves to reduce or eliminate, etc). A 2nd level version of it makes it 4d4 with 2 (or 4) bleed. Etc. These have to be broken out as separate entries as the spell's user may select it at varying levels.


    What would be terrific, however, and allow for a 1-spell-entry-does-it-all version would be if there was a Dice Multiplier for Damage (and Heal) that included an option for Spell Level. What would be equally as useful, and I imagine immeasurably more of a PITA, is having an Effect tag that also was keyed to Spell Level; such as [SL], similar to [CL].

    So here's a mock-up example of how a single Grim Tendrils spell entry that works for all levels might appear:


    The reason that would be amazing is because with just 1 spell entry, depending on what spell level it was dropped into, it would automatically adjust. So if that Grim Tendrils was placed into a 3rd level spell slot, it would adjust to be 6d4 and the effects would adjust to 3 bleed (or 6 bleed on the 2x for crits).

    Again, I expect this isn't an easy ask and we can all certainly use the more broken out spells that are employed currently, but as a Wishlist Item, this would be pretty nice.

    It's a good idea. I'll look into how feasible it is to implement in a future release.

    On spells and targeting, is there a way for a spell caster to target all his allies in the combat tracker at once? Instead of having to drag the target to each one every time.

    Yep. Use the normal multi-targeting options. The easiest is to click the "Target friendly unit" button in the map toolbar (if you've got the tokens on a map). Info here: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/wiki/...kens#Targeting If you're not using a map, then CTRL+click on each entry in the CT to add all the targets at once. Then click the relevant button to apply the effect - you can't use drag/drop for multi-targets.

    Ohhh. Have to have the little lock icon on the map unlocked for the player to see any targeting icons. Took me a little bit to figure that out. Thanks.

    Critical hit decks and fumble decks are in the pipeline. As the Harrow Deck isn't really a Second Edition product I doubt that will be done, at least not by me.

    EDIT: Critical Hit Deck in action preview:

    Nice Trenloe! The harrow deck is non specific to rules. They go on alignment.

    Yes, but they are not a Pathfinder Second Edition product. Hence why I won't be doing them.
