    Can't get custom effects to work

    Hi all

    I am trying to create a custom weapon but I am having trouble getting it to work. I heave entered the following code into the weapon's damage section:

    IFT: TYPE (undead); DMG: 1d6

    However when I tested it, the result came back as "TYPE: untyped" in the chat box. I'm using the 5e monster manual for my monsters. I've tested the code against undead and non-undead with the same result. I have also tried target a creature and clicking the "damage" butto in the PC character sheet and dropping the damage onto the target token

    Does anyone know what I have done wrong?

    Hi Aphasial, welcome to FG.

    You cannot (normally) attach effects to a weapon; the effect would have to sit in the character's action tab and be applied from there. You can however use this extension to do what you want https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...cs-characters)
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    What you can do though(if you don't want to download another extension), is code the weapon like you would a spell.
