Is familiar mascot supported in HeroLab? I don't see how they'd pick an ally outside of campaign theater (unless it's just a text field) but I can't even see an option to choose which master ability benefit is given to someone else.

So itís something you can choose daily per familiar rules.

ďEach day, you channel your magic into two abilities, which can be either familiar or master abilities.ď

Currently rebuilding all PFS characters...

I'm not asking how the ability works. I'm asking where you select the ability chosen for Familiar Mascot in HeroLab.

Doesnít make sense to implement it was my point. Itíd be like adding a feature that on rest for day has you reprepare spells by dumping your spell book and starting over. Or even more realistically itíd be like choosing who guidance, bless, or other spells were applied to in herolab. I donít think it makes a ton of sense unless the campaign tool takes off and gets completed.

Maybe you don't understand what I am asking. There is a feat called Familiar Mascot that grants one of your master abilities to someone else. If you select Share Senses, for example, the shared senses go to another PC in your party. If you select Extra Reagents, someone else gets them. You no longer get them.

So even if we don't have a mechanism to show who has the benefit, the benefit should NOT be showing on the actual owner of the familiar.Currently, the only way to represent this in HLO that I can see is to not select the master ability on the familiar owner and just leave the error that you can choose another master ability.

Something like a check-box to indicate, "Ability granted to party member?"

I think the right way within the HeroLab approach would be a configuration on the Familiar Mascot feat where you select one of your chosen master abilities. The main thing is to show that you've selected all the master/familiar abilities you need to, but not show abilities/actions on the sheet from the one you've given away.

Like Share Senses shows a Share Senses action on the Play tab. Cantrip Connection adds a cantrip slot to your daily spells. But if it's selected for Familiar Mascot, that shouldn't happen.
