I'm creating a 'racial' template (monster) and want to add the cBonusHD in the list but no matter what I use as a 'Fields' value like pMinimum it will only add one Hit Die level no matter what value I set it to.

What I need is to have a place where I can read about what pMinimum, pMaximum and Value fields in a bootstap item do.

I also need to be able to read about bootstrap items and what they do, like cBonusHD do.

Where can I find this in documentation?

I doubt you'll find anything that goes down to a granular field level like that.

Have you read Mathias' documentation/tutorials over at: http://forums.wolflair.com/showthread.php?t=21688 ?

The "official" authoring wiki is here:

there might be some leads there to follow.

From my experience:
pMinimum, pMaximum are fields that hold the limits to a "pick" from a dialogue. Basically they are set or modified to control the minimum and maximum user entered value.

Value usually holds the end value that is picked in a field after some script calculations were performed.

My guess at what might be wrong with a script like yours is that you may not have the timing right. Hit Dice and hit points are very picky as to when you can modify them.

cBonusHD is a class level Pick designed to represent a Bonus Hit Dice. Just like a 3rd level class requires three class level Picks to be 3rd. To get 3 Bonus Hit Dice requires 3 instances of cBonusHD.

Meaning bootstrap cBonusHD three times to give 3 hit dice in example.

Hope that helps...
