Allow Dwarven Auto Languages to be removed.

Description

Advanced Race Guide - I'm helping code this resource, and one of the Dwarven Alternate Racial traits restricts their automatic languages to only Dwarven. However, AUTO:LANG|.CLEAR isn't stripping their languages. Andrew asked me to put in a JIRA. Hope I've done this right.

Are you using it in a .MOD of the original Dwarf race? If not then it is not expected to affect the race - please see the .CLEAR Docs for the full details.

I had tried putting Dwarf.MOD in the line, but that didn't work. Do I need to make a separate Dwarf.MOD entry in the file? I can do that, but I'm still learning the .lst coding, how do I call that from this race trait so it only applies when this race trait is chosen, or is that even an option?
The line as (most recently) applied is:
Xenophobic KEY:Xenophobic ~ Dwarf CATEGORY:Special Ability TYPE:RacialTraits.SpecialQuality.Extraordinary.DwarfRacialTrait.DwarfLanguages.SaveBonus Dwarf.MOD AUTO:LANG|.CLEAR AUTO:LANG|Dwarven BONUS:LANGUAGES|NUMBER|-INT DESC:Isolationist dwarves despise non-dwarven humanoids. They speak only Dwarven and do not gain any bonus languages from possessing a high Intelligence score. In addition, they learn only one language per 2 ranks of Linguistics they possess. However, their untrusting nature gives them a +1 bonus against mind-affecting effects, except for fear affects. COST:0 SOURCEPAGE: p.12 ASPECT:SaveBonus|+1 vs. mind-affecting effects, except fear

TRUNK ONLY - See if this works for ARG.

Use TYPEwarfLanguage in a CATEGORY:Special Ability and it will kill the Auto granted Languages of Common and Dwarven.

Andrew, after your change modding my entry to the below now works. If there is a cleaner way to implement, let me know, but it's working as intended.

Xenophobic KEY:Xenophobic ~ Dwarf CATEGORY:Special Ability TYPE:RacialTraits.SpecialQuality.Extraordinary.DwarfRacialTrait.DwarfLanguage.SaveBonus AUTO:LANG|Dwarven BONUS:LANGUAGES|NUMBER|-INT DESC:Isolationist dwarves despise non-dwarven humanoids. They speak only Dwarven and do not gain any bonus languages from possessing a high Intelligence score. In addition, they learn only one language per 2 ranks of Linguistics they possess. However, their untrusting nature gives them a +1 bonus against mind-affecting effects, except for fear effects. COST:0 SOURCEPAGE: p.12 ASPECT:SaveBonus|+1 vs. mind-affecting effects, except fear
Now to figure out the change to the Linguistics skill.
