This is super awesome.  Notwithstanding the thread title, I've totally cut opcode 214 out of the picture now, which means this can actually be done in the wizard class (!)

 

Only thing is, the kit has all of its memorization slots stripped away, and spells are replaced with innate abilities under the "cast spell" button... just like SCS HLAs-as-innates.  Given that you can't actually memorize anything, I can't figure out how this kit can possibly use:

- Identify

- Sequencers

- Contingencies


Faiths & Powers: Spell spheres and kit pack for priests and paladins
Might & Guile: Tweaks and kits for warriors and rogues
Scales of Balance: Game tweaks and rule overhauls
NPC_EE: More options for NPCs in BGEE, SoD, & BG2EE

Any idea how I could make something like the Ring of Wizardry work with this system? Or, a bit more complicated, stat-based bonuses?

Say 1st-level spell slots are represented by (x << 8) of stat 113. As I level up, i get 233 effects increasing the stat, to (5 << 8). Then as I cast spells, they decrease the stat, each time by (1 << 8). When the stat drops to (0 << 8), the no longer appear so it is not possible to decrease it any further. When I rest the stat is restored to (5 << 8) and the spells are available again. So far so good.

Say we have a ring with a constant equipping effect increasing the stat by (1 << 8). That would be fine... unless I cast all my spells, dropping the stat to (0 << 8), and then take off the ring. Result: the stat value would drop to (-1 << 8), i.e. -256. Or if I am proficient in SWS, -255. That doesn't sound good. Would the value wrap around and give me 4 billion (give or take a few) points in SWS?
