    How would you go about adding this effect to a power/item on a PC?

    one of my characters recently discovered and finished the Tome of Exalted Deeds, and several of the powers from the item are 1 use/day, except if they recharge on a 6 when they are used.

    You can't have an automatic recharge on a PC - only an NPC. You can use the 'preparation' mode in the action tab to set the limits of the power but you'll need to roll a dice and manually do the recharge effect.
    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/

    Right now I am having troubles to get the autoparse for innate spellcasting working

    i.e. that is what I can successfully use to parse "normal" Spellcasting.
    Code:
    <spellcasting>
    	<name type="string">Spellcasting</name>
    	<desc type="string">Spellcasting. The Ravager Slaughter Lord is a 9th-level spellcaster. Its spellcasting ability is Wisdom (spell save DC 15, +5 to hit with spell attacks). The Ravager Slaughter Lord has the following spells prepared: \rCantrips (at will): light, sacred flame, thaumaturgy\r1st level (3 slots): bless, cure wounds, sanctuary
    	</desc>
    </spellcasting>
    The first post says

    If the NPC has innate spellcasting abilities then replace the heading with 'Innate Spellcasting' and replace the 1st level, 2nd level etc with 3/day, 1/day or whatever the NPC rate of casting is.
    So what would I have to change in my spellcasting example to get it to work with innate spellcasting?

    I tried the following ones but to no avail:

    Code:
    <spellcasting>
    	<name type="string">Innate Spellcasting</name>
    	<desc type="string">Innate Spellcasting. The Ravager Slaughter Lord is a 9th-level spellcaster. Its spellcasting ability is Wisdom (spell save DC 15, +5 to hit with spell attacks). The Ravager Slaughter Lord has the following spells prepared: \rAt will: light, sacred flame, thaumaturgy\r3/day: bless, cure wounds, sanctuary
    	</desc>
    </spellcasting>
    Code:
    <spellcasting>
    	<name type="string">Spellcasting</name>
    	<desc type="string">Innate Spellcasting. The Ravager Slaughter Lord is a 9th-level innate spellcaster. Its spellcasting ability is Wisdom (spell save DC 15, +5 to hit with spell attacks). The Ravager Slaughter Lord has the following spells prepared: \rAt will: light, sacred flame, thaumaturgy\r3/day: bless, cure wounds, sanctuary
    	</desc>
    </spellcasting>
    Code:
    <spellcasting>
    	<name type="string">Innate Spellcasting</name>
    	<desc type="string">Spellcasting. The Ravager Slaughter Lord is a 9th-level spellcaster. Its spellcasting ability is Wisdom (spell save DC 15, +5 to hit with spell attacks). The Ravager Slaughter Lord has the following spells prepared: \rAt will: light, sacred flame, thaumaturgy\r3/day: bless, cure wounds, sanctuary
    	</desc>
    </spellcasting>

    I would start with an example from the SRD (such as Drow), and then update to fit your creature.

    Given that, I found that the Innate Spellcasting trait is not auto-parsed like the Spellcasting trait. I'll see what I can do to fix.

    I don't know about doing it in the xml, but have you tried putting it in through the GUI and then seeing what if it works and what xml is generated?

    yes and it did not work either, I guess due to what Moon Wizard said.

    Possibly this is what you want

    Also, where on the weapon does "silver" need to be included, properties? Does the format matter for that also?

    Thanks for the work on this write up! It's been a tremendous help.
    Try bludgeoning, slashing, piercing, !magic, !silver

    Thanks Zacchaeus for expanding on the effects. Do you know which traits do have an impact on the automation. I did check some and nearly all i checked didn't work.

    traits that are hard to automate because the condition for it to trigger is not within fantasy grounds:
    • Magic Resistance (trigger for magic attack is not on the save while dropping the save on the NPC)
    • Brave (trigger for frightened is not on the save while dropping the save on the NPC)
    • Sunlight Sensitivity (trigger for sunlight is not in fantasygrounds)
    • Stone Camouflage (trigger for the rocky terrain is not in fantasygrounds)
    • Keen Hearing & Keen Senses (the triggers for the hearing and the other senses are not on the saving throws)
    • Siege Monster (Objects and structures are not recognized)
    • Reflective Carapace (Does not recognize the condition)
