Can't use multiple Skeleton templates


My current campaign includes a necromancer and we have been using PCgen to also create the undead he raises, but one of the issues we have found is that while creating a bloody burning skeleton is explicitly stated as possible within the rules on the official PRD (it even says a bloody burning skeletal champion is possible), but doesn't work within the pcgen system. As the most experienced with the pcgen data format of our group I plan to try and create templates for each of the combinations on my own for us to use as a work around, but feel that a more permanent solution could be found without needing to transfer these files over to ever new installation of an update.

Do you have this template already set up, or are you asking a volunteer to create this template or set of templates?

I haven't yet done any of it, probably will end up starting work on them next weekend, I just wonder if there is not a better way to do it than making a seperate template for every possible combination of special skeletons (as well as zombies and other creatures with variant templates) and wanted to bring it to the attention of someone with more knowledge of the inner workings than I.

I'm still not catching what you're wanting from me. Are you wanting to collaborate, get advice, or have me address the issue? (Most people open bug reports to get a fix) You're mentioning someone with more knowledge of PCGen. I'm probably the most qualified on the content side.

If you want to chat about it, I'll be on hipchat for the next 3 or 4 hours -

OP seemed to want advice on how to do this, no further interaction since last comment. Closing this out, as the template(s) being asked for, probably need to be added through other source books.
