View Full Version : Effect Duration options

October 7th, 2021, 00:20
Hey Leo, I am setting up some custom Patrons and one of them has a transformation effect that lasts 5 rounds per Class Level. I was trying to set that up to have an auto duration set up when placed on the character. Is there a multiplication function in the Duration formula? If so, what's the syntax?

Hey Tab!

The short answer is yes. Duration is parsed into the main clause, operator, and modifier. The main clause can be a dice phrase (1d6+1), caster level (CL), or a number modifier. The operator (+-*/) is applied to the modifier, which can be CL, an ability score modifier in short form (ie, Int), or a number. This covers every possible duration from the core rules.

In your case, CL is treated as the main clause and 5 is the modifier, so you would enter 'CL*5' for the duration.

I'm working on a website that covers all the features that are different than 5E, but progress has been slow.

Cool! I was certain it was there I just didn't come up with the *.
