The Global BONUS Tags

The BONUS tag tells PCGen that the following information is to be added to a character as well as where it is to be added.

The general format for bonus tags are as follows:

BONUS:<category>|<group>|<formula>

This can be followed by pipe-delimitated PRExxx or TYPE=<type> tags.

Each of the "Tag Names" in this page go in the <category> field, and the "Variables Used" go in the <group> field.

For the Formula syntax, see the Math Operators and Formulas page.

LIST is a special case in feats.lst . It can be placed in most <group> categories. LIST will be replaced by the choice from a CHOOSE tag contained within the feat.


BONUS Types

Each bonus comes in four different types.

  1. The Typeless bonus with no type
  2. The Standard bonus with type (TYPE=name)
  3. The .REPLACE bonus type (TYPE=name.REPLACE)
  4. The .STACK bonus type (TYPE=name.STACK)

Bonus Type: Typeless

What it Does:

Examples:

BONUS:HP|CURRENTMAX|3

This bonus would grant the character an additional three hit points.

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|4

This bonus would grant the character a bonus to the listed skills of four.

BONUS:SKILL|STAT=DEX|1

This would grant the character a bonus of one to all skills based on DEX.


Bonus Type: Standard

What it Does:

Examples:

BONUS:HP|CURRENTMAX|2|TYPE=Luck
BONUS:HP|CURRENTMAX|3|TYPE=Luck

So long as the 'Luck' type is not listed in miscinfo.lst, these two would result in a final value of 3, since 3 is the largest 'Luck' type.

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|3|TYPE=Luck
BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|4|TYPE=Divine

These would return a 3 from Luck, and a 4 from Divine, for a total of 7. They are different Types.

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|2|TYPE=Luck
BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|3|TYPE=Luck
BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|4|TYPE=Divine

This would also return a value of 7, since 3 is the highest Luck bonus, and 4 is the highest Divine bonus.


Bonus Type: .REPLACE

What it Does:

Examples:

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|3|TYPE=Luck.REPLACE
BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|2|TYPE=Luck.REPLACE
BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|4|TYPE=Luck
BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|2|TYPE=Luck

This would take the 2 and 3 with the .REPLACE (total 5) and compares it to the standards, which are 2 and 4, and takes the highest value, for 5.

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|1|TYPE=Luck.REPLACE
BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|1|TYPE=Luck.REPLACE
BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|2|TYPE=Luck.REPLACE
BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|2|TYPE=Luck
BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|6|TYPE=Luck

This would take the values from the .REPLACE (total 4), and compares it to the standards, which are 2 and 6, and takes the highest value, for 6.


Bonus Type: .STACK

What it Does:

Examples:

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|4|TYPE=Luck

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|2|TYPE=Luck.STACK

This would take the 4 of type Luck , and then add 2 more from the Stack , on top of it.

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|4|TYPE=Luck.REPLACE

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|4|TYPE=Luck.STACK

This would take the 4 of type Luck , and then add 4 more from the Stack , on top of it.

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|4|TYPE=Luck

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|3|TYPE=Luck.REPLACE

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|3|TYPE=Luck.REPLACE

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|1|TYPE=Luck.STACK

This would take the 4 normal, compare to the .REPLACE (6) and give the higher value, then add in the .STACK , for a final value of 7.

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|4|TYPE=Luck

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|1|TYPE=Luck.REPLACE

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|1|TYPE=Luck.REPLACE

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|3|TYPE=Luck.STACK

BONUS:SKILL|Bluff,Listen|3|TYPE=Luck.STACK

This would take the normal (4), compare it to the total .REPLACE (2), give the higher value, then add in the .STACK (6) for a final value of 10.


Special BONUS Types

There are two types of special "types" defined in the miscinfo.lst file in the system/gamemode folders. These are the Bonus Stack Types and the AC Types .

Bonus Stacks

Within PCGen, tags which do not have a TYPE=<type> sub-tag appended are assumed to stack, tags which do have a type appended do not normally stack. Some games have exceptions to this rule and list specific types which always do stack. In the fantasy gameModes Dodge and Circumstance always stack. The BONUSESTACKS tag in the miscinfo.lst file lists those exceptions. The following are commonly used types that are defined within the miscinfo.lst file for this purpose.

Defense

Dodge

Circumstance

NotRanged

NotFlatFooted

Armor Class Types

PCGen tracks bonuses to the armor class through the use of several AC types. The following are commonly used types that are defined with the ACTYPE tag in the GameMode's miscinfo.lst file.

Total

Flatfooted

Touch

Base

Equipment

Armor

Shield

Ability

Size

NaturalArmor

NaturalArmorEnhancement

Misc

ClassDefense

Dodge


Miscellaneous BONUS Type Notes

Bonuses with negative numbers have been found to stack even when they have matching types.

While you can't .CLEAR a BONUS tag you can add a counter bonus that would negate it. In this case you would add a counter bonus and PRExxx tag it with the reverse of the feat's prerequisite.


BONUS Tag List


*** New 5.11.1

Tag Name: BONUS:ABILITYPOOL|x|y

Variables Used (x): Text (Ability Category)

Variables Used (y): Number (Amount added to pool)

What it Does:

Adds to the number of available Abilities the character can take.

Example:

BONUS:ABILITYPOOL|Salient Divine Ability|1

The character may take one additional Salient Divine Ability.


*** Updated 5.7.1

Tag Name: BONUS:CASTERLEVEL|x|y

Variables Used (x): Text (Class name)

Variables Used (x): ALLSPELLS

Variables Used (x): DESCRIPTOR.Text (Spell descriptor name)

Variables Used (x): DOMAIN.Text (Domain name)

Variables Used (x): RACE.Text (Race name)

Variables Used (x): SCHOOL.Text (School name)

Variables Used (x): SPELL.Text (Spell name)

Variables Used (x): SUBSCHOOL.Text (Subschool name)

Variables Used (x): TYPE.Text (Class type)

Variables Used (y): Number, variable or formula (Number to add to caster level)

What it Does:

Examples:

BONUS:CASTERLEVEL|Sorcerer|1

Adds 1 to Sorcerer spell caster level.

BONUS:CASTERLEVEL|TYPE.Arcane|1

Adds 1 to Arcane spell caster level.

BONUS:CASTERLEVEL|RACE.Gelfling|4

Sets Gelfling innate racial spell caster level to 4.

BONUS:CASTERLEVEL|SPELL.Levitate|2

Adds 2 to caster level for the 'Levitate' spell.

BONUS:CASTERLEVEL|SCHOOL.Transmutation|2

Adds 2 to caster level for all spells of the 'Transmutation' school.

BONUS:CASTERLEVEL|Paladin|CL/2|PRECLASSLEVEL:Paladin=4

Sets the Paladin's spell caster level to half his class level after he reaches level 4.

(Note that the syntax used in this last example is only valid in a class line)

CLASS:Defender.MOD <tab> SPELLSTAT:INT <tab> BONUSSPELLSTAT:NONE <tab> SPELLTYPE:Arcane <tab> SPELLBOOK:NO <tab> BONUS:CASTERLEVEL|Defender|TL <tab> SPELLLIST:1|Channeler

Modifying the class Defender changes all of these tags to determine bonus spells and maximum casting level.

Additional qualifier: .RESET

.RESET is an additional qualifier that can be used for all subtags except CLASS and RACE. What .RESET does is resets the caster level to the value specified instead of adding it to PC's caster level (which is what would usually be done). Note that if any .RESET qualifier is encountered then the caster level is reset even if other bonus tags do not have them. Also, multiple .RESET encountered do not overwrite each other.

The syntax is: BONUS:CASTERLEVEL|subtag.text.RESET|number

Examples using .RESET:

CASTERLEVEL|TYPE.Divine.RESET|max(CASTERLEVEL.TOTAL,10)

In this example all Divine spells would have a caster level of either 10 or the PC's default caster level, whichever is higher.

BONUS:CASTERLEVEL|SPELL.Fireball.RESET|7

BONUS:CASTERLEVEL|SCHOOL.Evocation.RESET|3

These two bonuses in combination would result in a caster level of 10 for Fireball (because it is also in the school of Evocation) and 3 for all other Evocation spells
