      Description

      Add a global bonus which affects the total range penalty for all penalized ranges, but does not affect the range penalty multiplier
      =========================
      There are feats in the new books that affect the overall range penalty for specific weapons or weapon types. This doesn't affect the range penalty multiplier, but the final tallied range penalty for each range increment (where a penalty is applied). Here are some examples of how the feat will work:
      -----------
      Arc Slinger
      When using a sling or sling staff, you reduce your penalty on ranged attack rolls due to range by 2. Point-Blank Shot's damage bonus applies within the first normal range increment of your sling (50 feet) or sling staff (80 feet).
      ------------
      A 3rd level base dwarven fighter with 14 STR, 16 DEX wielding a sling (50' range increment).
      Feats: Weapon Focus (sling), Point-Blank Shot, Precise Shot, BAB: +3
      without Arc Slinger (affected ranges are *):
      [30ft +8] [50ft +7] [100ft +5*] [150ft +3*] [200ft +1*]
      with Arc Slinger:
      [30ft +8] [50ft +8] [100ft +7*] [150ft +5*] [200ft +3*]

      So, any attack bonus that has a range penalty applied to it will calculate out its total range penalty, and then reduce the penalty by -2.

      =========================
      Add TOHIT-INRANGE (or similar) variable that applies to weapon in first range increment
      =========================
      Looking again at the Arc Slinger feat, there's another bonus to the feat which increases the +1 bonus given on Point-Blank Shot. So, with Arc Slinger, Point Blank Shot will affect up to the weapon's first range increment. Using the exact same stats above:
      without Arc Slinger (affected ranges are *):
      [30ft +8] [50ft +7*] [100ft +5] [150ft +3] [200ft +1]
      with Arc Slinger:
      [30ft +8] [50ft +8*] [100ft +7] [150ft +5] [200ft +3]

      With the feat, the PBS +1 bonus now affects both the 30ft increment and the 50ft (for the sling - 80ft for the halfling sling staff)

        Thanks for the location fix, Andrew! I'll get the hang of Jira eventually

        I see that Arc Slinger was coded up to use 3 nonexistent bonus tags, GLOBALRANGEPENALTY for the flat +2 to each range increment, and TOHIT-FIRSTRANGE/DAMAGE-FIRSTRANGE for extending Point-Blank Shot bonuses to the first range increment.

        What is the plan for these tags? Are they just placeholders?

        I have attached a patch that implements these 3 tokens.
