So I am working on a bunch of Archetype (via Groups) for a fantasy game. For newbies who want to just select "Barbarian" or "Bard" and it will add Attributes, Skills, Edges and Hindrances. A shortcut character so to speak.

The important part, none of this should be "free" it should cost for each thing added, this is like a partially built character.

Problem is I have learned how to add Attributes and Skills so they don't reflect in the cost. How would I do the opposite?

Example Barbarian:

Pre-Traits 5000 Timing: Before Calc trtFinal
perform #traitadjust[skFighting,+,1,"Barbarian"]
(I of course Bootstrapped in the skill Fighting as well)
The Boostrap counts but not the raise to d6
Fighting 6, 1 of 15 (14 left)

Pre-Traits 5000 Timing: Before Calc trtFinal
hero.child[attrAgi].field[trtCreate].value += 1
Agility 6 but still 0 of 5 (5 left)

So do I need to actually add code to increase the cost?

perform #resspent[resSkill,+,1,"Barbarian"]

Not sure what it would be for Attributes.

I also tried doing the Skill completely by Bootstrap:
<bootstrap thing="skFighting">
<autotag group="SkillDie" tag="6"/>

Just gives me Fighting d4

It has been awhile since I have worked in HeroLab so have forgotten a bit. Thanks ahead of time.

You are right, the bootstrap just adds the skill at d4 for free. If I understand right, you will want the template to give a d6 to the skill, but charge you for both the d4 and d6. Try this:

Priority 5100

perform #traitadjust[skFighting,+,1,"Fighting d6"]
perform #resspent[resSkill,+,1,"Pay For Skill"]
Timing: Before Calc trtFinal

That should work if I understand you right. And you will still want to have the fighting skill bootstrapped in the group, but don't bother with the settings for it.

Evil wins because good rolls poorly .... or the players are not paying enough attention to the game.
