    Text parsing for skills.

    Is there a text parsing nomenclature for this effect: SKILL: -2 acrobatics?

    For example: "Foe is Dazed until the end of your next turn." This will highlight the Dazed to be dragged to PC or NPC.

    I am hoping there is something similar for Skills and Abilities.

    Also how about "-2 to Attack (save ends)."

    No, there is no text parsing for that. You have to create effects to give a bonus or penalty to skills, abilities, attacks or saves.
    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 here https://www.fantasygrounds.com/featu...rerequests.php

    I noticed the effect Helpless is not parsed.

    For example: "Foe is Helpless." does not work.

    Try these:
    -2 penalty to attack
    -2 penalty to perception

    They work for me. That is, they highlight and drag and drop onto a character and the character seems to suffer the appropriate penalty

    Use "bonus" for bonuses.

    +2 bonus to attack
    +2 bonus to perception

    manager_power.lua for even more details

    Heh, replying in the 4e forum again, a subject I know nothing about. Ignore my muttering.

    Thank you!

    And a working example for a penalty for an ability would be:

    "-2 penalty to charisma ability."

    Where you able to get Helpless to work?

    For Helpless, noticed that in data_common.lua there is a distinction between the conditions it parses and the conditions it knows. Helpless is one of those like running and climbing. (Highlighted some below.) I would assume (but have not tried) that if you add the word "helpless" to the "conditionsparse" list that it will work. But some of those may have been left out on purpose.

    I did see in manager_power.lua that you do get combat advantage if your target has the helpless condition, so at least that part should work if you manually add a "Helpless" condition.

    Code:
    conditionsparse = {
        "blinded", 
        "dazed", 
        "deafened", 
        "dominated", 
        "grabbed", 
        "immobilized", 
        "insubstantial", 
        "invisible", 
        "marked", 
        "petrified", 
        "phasing",
        "prone", 
        "restrained", 
        "slowed", 
        "stunned", 
        "swallowed", 
        "unconscious", 
        "weakened"
    };
     
    conditions = {
        "balancing", 
        "blinded", 
        "climbing", 
        "dazed", 
        "deafened", 
        "dominated", 
        "grabbed", 
        "helpless", 
        "immobilized", 
        "insubstantial", 
        "invisible", 
        "marked", 
        "petrified", 
        "phasing",
        "prone", 
        "restrained", 
        "running", 
        "slowed", 
        "squeezing", 
        "stunned", 
        "surprised", 
        "swallowed", 
        "unconscious", 
        "weakened" };
