Cleric domains don't display in the Cleric Spell List


The following six cleric domains (all from the divine section of the rules) simply don't work. That is, if you choose the domain, the domain spells are not added to the cleric's list.

  • Charm

  • Liberation

  • Nobility

  • Rune

  • Scalykind

  • Weather
    I tested it with an unaltered copy of the data files to make sure it wasn't a result of my tinkering breaking stuff.

As an aside, why are the divine spells in the "basics" section rather than the "divine" section? It doesn't really matter that much, just seems a bit odd.

Human, Cleric 1, Wis 12 - Deity None, Domain 'Artifice' - Granted Domain Spell L1 - Animate Rope [Artifice]
It's not displayed in the Spell List, but it is in Known List.

As I'm presently at work, and it took me fifteen minutes just to get that much handled, I won't test the rest in what I imagine will give me the same result.

The Domains used to display in the Cleric Spell List, now it's just granted. However, I can see an issue if the option to not automatically grant known spells is deselected.

Normally you'd see +Domains and the two spells you were granted would be there. This seems to have been lost.

Not being in the known list (the right panel) was the issue; sorry if that was unclear. Domain spells appear in the known spell list for all the other domains. For example, if I select the Magic domain, I see "Magic Aura [Magic]" in the known spell list under level 1. If I select the Charm domain, I don't see "Charm Person [Charm]" anywhere on the list. I tested every domain, and the six I listed did not work.

Is the screenshot older or has it been fixed already?

...also, I meant to create this ticket in the DATA section, not the CODE section... though I couldn't see anything wrong with the data, so I guess it's possible it's not a data issue.
EDIT: Oh, I see, it was moved from DATA to CODE. Okay then.

The screen shot is of the 5.16 version. I tested using the 6.01.4 version. Since the data isn't broken I made this a code issue and have pushed it to the Code team.

I've confirmed that the spells each of these domains get granted to the known list for the cleric when the domain is taken. They do not appear in the available list - that is expected and documented in
