Alright, so I'm looking at tempting one of my players towards damnation by slowly corrupting them throw attaining knowledge and power. Namely, a Book of Shadows/Book of Ancient Secrets.

I started out with just creating an item that functioned as a Book of Ancient Secrets. No problem there actually, just created a Wondrous item and bootstrapped it on. It created a new tab where they could add ritual spells from all lists. Cool.

I realized I started this bass ackwards, so removed the bootstrap, and then bootstrapped on the Book of Shadows and removed the requirement of Warlock. That...didn't work out as well. It has an eval script that references a table. No idea what the table is, or what I should be adding in/removing to take care of it.

The warlock stuff like that invocation and pact of the tome all uses variables that start with a "c" - which means they are "class" fields, variables and tables and expect in those cases the warlock class

Trying to modify or adapt them is likely to fail on non-warlocks or cause weird effects because the warlock method of adding spells is completely different from the rest of the classes.

I would suggest looking at the feat Magic Initiate and the associated configurable. The configurable is what actually sets up a new tab and spell selection lists and would allow for not using Charisma.
