How do I get hero lab to retrieve the description text of another item to append it to the description of something? I know in Pathfinder this can be accomplished with a tag, but how I would implement that? Do I need to shadow all the things to the hero so it can be retrieved?


Please do not PM me to inquire about datafiles I coded "for personal use" such as Exalted, World of Darkness, AD&D, or Warhammer 40K Roleplaying. I appreciate your interest, but I do not own the Intellectual Property rights to these game systems. Nor do I have permission from any of the Publishers to distribute the data files. As such, I cannot distribute the work I have done with community on these files. They are "for personal use" only. Thank you.

I too am wondering the same thing. I have skill specialties that have a tag for the associated skill. It would be nice to be able to add the text of the Skill name automagically when displayed.

foreach thing in component where "tag expression"
     @text &= eachthing.field[descript].text
Be careful to use eachthing, not eachpick, in a thing-based foreach like this one.
