Alright, so normally, you only have access to one Bond at character creation. however, some of my players created bonds to other players before a campaign but it won't let me add anymore to a character in the HeroLab. i thought at first making it a Permanent Adjustment, but there is no option for adding Bonds.

Is there a possible way to recode the base program to allow a MINIMUM of one Bond but make the maximum increase to say 5 (A touch extreme but just as an example)?

I don't know if they'd change the program to support a maximum on Bonds.

The background "bonds" are actually pretty much freeform fields, you can type over whatever you random roll to customize it. Nothing stops you from typing two bonds in the one text field.

Otherwise, you can create your own variants to every background or an adjustment that touches the following:

hero.childfound[BackCheck].field[BondMin].value += 1

That code above can run First/10000 and it changes the number of minimum bonds required by 1. You could port this into an adjustment that every time you up the counter, the value goes up, requiring the user to put in another bond.

You can also look at the BondCurr value and write an expr-req that compares BondCurr to 5 and throws an error if you go above 5.

If the length of the additional Bond text isn't too long, just add it to the existing Bond?

I wasn't entirely sure of how to work this. the second idea here, to just add to the Text might work best. although, having a backup idea won't hurt. thanks for the ideas guys and i hope you all have a great day.
