Expanding the Magical Items Worn area

Post by caragon » Mon May 20, 2019 9:51 am

I was wondering if there are any plans for expanding the Magical Items Worn area in the near future? I have several high level characters I have been playing for 30+ years now, created in D&D 1st, converted into D&D 2nd, then 3.5, then Pathfinder 1st ed. Some are near Epic and others ARE Epic and I just don't have the room for all the items they have aquired. Especially the wizards with the Ioun Stones. Thank you for your time and response.

It is unlikely that this will be updated. There may be some work-arounds for this. I will think on it and get back to you. If you can post your character and describe what you want to be different, I can come up with a solution that you might like (there are plenty of tables for additional custom information throughout TOS+, so this would just be about utilizing what is already there).

Shai is correct - that won't get expanded.

As Shai might hint at is that you can create objects that are a combination of several object, thus reducing the overall footprint.
TOS+ supports up to SIX effects per item, and very few items uses that many!

So basically, creating a combined object would be the way to go for your Epic character!

Another solution is to create the items you need in the ABILITIES worksheet... If you set Permanency to YES, then the effects of the item will be activated. If you set the permanency to NO, then you can activate the item on the Laptop worksheet...

I'm pretty sure these ideas can handle any Epic characters!

P.S.: wow 30 years? nice! Why have you never posted/shared it in the Adventurers [TOS+ Characters] section of the forum?

@caragon, do you want to share your character so we can work on helping you out with it? You can share the .tos file (not the full Excel file) here on the forums! :)
