    Help with an effect syntax

    According to the Wiki if I want to do different damage to a TYPE of creature then I should do the following syntax. Yet, it doesn't work and creatures other than those listed still take the full damage.

    Any help greatly appreciated.


    Cheers,
    Booker.

    Looks like you have a colon ( after the first slashing instead of a semi colon (. Not absolutely sure since that font isn't easy to read.

    So DMG:1d6, slashing; IFT: TYPE(undead etc); 16, slashing
    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/

    Thanks,

    But that adds 16 to the initial 1d6 if they are undead. What I want is if the creature is undead then the max 16 damage is applied instead.
    If they are not undead it just adds the standard 1d6.

    You can't do that - there's no do this or do that in conditional effects. Anything before a conditional effect (IF or IFT) is always active, anything after a conditional effect (this could be multiple effects) should only activate if the conditional effect is matched. See the details here: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/wiki/..._on_IF_and_IFT
