New Summary: CONTIGUOUS Tag for contiguous class progression
Type: New Token
Component: LST Tag
There is a rule that states once a Monk or Paladin multiclasses to
another class, they can't gain another level in Monk or Paladin.
Currently there is no easy way to enforce this rule with existing
LST tags. Two things need to be kept in mind. One, there are
certain prestige class which specifically cercumvent this rule. Two,
many people ignore this rule and so a preference will need to be
added to turn this rule off.
The proposed solution is a new tag: CONTIGUOUS tag for
Tag Name: CONTIGUOUS:x|x
Variables Used : Text (Class name)
Where it is used: in a class line
What it does: This is a pipe deliniated list of classes to which the
class this tag is found in will treat as Contiguous. Contiguous class
levels must be aquired in a sequence unbroken by levels from
other classes. The Paladin and Monk are examples of contiguous
classes. The Monk would have CONTIGUOUS:Monk in its class line.
Certain classes which specificaly do not break this progression
would use this tag to name the class which they may be stacked
with. A Special Monk class would use CONTIGUOUS:Monk and
would allow the PC to take levels of Special Monk without
disqualifying him from taking additional levels of Monk.
When used in the Paladin class requires the PC to take only Paladin
levels and disqualifies him from taking additional levels should he
multiclass into another class. When used in another class would
allow the PC to multiclass into levels of that class without breaking
the Paladins contiguous progression.
When used in the Special Monk class it allows the PC to take levels
of Special Monk without breaking the Monk's contiguous
progression and additionaly defines the Special Monk class itself as
a contiguous class.
IN the House Rules Preference an item would be added which
Ignore Contiguous class requirments <check box>
Special thanks to David Finch for the idea of having the tag name
the class which makes the method of defining how other classes
stack with it much easier.

I concurr, definitely a luxury item. It would be really
helpful for DM policing, tho. If this gets implemented, I
think we should have a poll for default behavior (I'd vote
for default enforcement).
One other thing to consider is the CC 'Ascetic blah' feats,
where they allow normally non-contiguous classes to stack
with contiguous classes. I'd like to consider syntax with
that in mind before this gets coded. If a coder wants this,
please bring it up on pcgen_experimental. Thanks.

This is currently left to user-policing. I'd call it a
luxury item, that can be done if Code has enough resources.
Not a high priority.

I know Fantasy Craft requires this Functionality.
