Are you loading any files other than Dungeon Fantasy RPG?

I just created a character with only that file loaded, added all three skills, then Bardic Talent, and I'm clearly seeing all three receive the bonus.

Seems to work now when I start a new PC, Not sure why it didn't when I loaded the new data set.
Thank You

If you have an existing character, remember that you have to Resynchronize to update the existing traits on that character to the new data.

Just as a curiosity, is there a way to build new bardsong abilities inside the file? I used powers before, but didnít see a way to do that here.
Thank you.

There's no builder as such, no, so it would require all manual editing.

ETA: I've added a note to look at adding a builder for the file. If I get to it, it will likely only happen in the GCA5 version.

Much appreciated. Thank you.

I just got GCA 5 from Warehouse 23 and am trying to use it to make some DFRPG 62-point hirelings.

You'll have to load this new file, then any existing characters will need to resync their Equipment (and the stuff on the left side of the dialog).
Unfortunately that's a dead link for me. "This item might not exist or is no longer available."

I didn't see any Dungeon Fantasy listings on the GCA downloads page (https://www.misersoft.com/gca5/?cat=5) even though patch notes for DF are listed on the "Package Updates" page. Can anyone tell me how to get started with DF in GCA? Clearly it's supported; I just can't figure out how.

With CGA5, you select which books to use in
menu : File > Manage your Library

The DF RPG and the Gurps DF serie (not the same !!!) books are sorted under worldbooks.

You should create a new library, and select the books you want for your DF characters.

For DFRPG, you want Dungeon Fantasy RPG.gdf and possibly Delver to Grow

For the Gurps DF line, you want the various Gurps Dungeon Fantasy .gdf (1 to 15)

DFRPG is an optional update : if you don't have it, run CGA 5 updater in
menu : Help > check for updates
you will have a screen to select it. (make sure you have the latest version of CGA5 before trying to update the datafiles )

The Dungeon Fantasy RPG box-set is now included with GCA as a single complete file in the \worldbooks\ folder. The base file is "Dungeon Fantasy RPG.gdf" and if you want to use it there's also "Dungeon Fantasy RPG - Companion 3.gdf".

Here's a short little video on Youtube that I made about how to get started, after another user asked how to start using DFRPG to make a bard. It should help you as well.

There's also an optional download from the Check for Updates system that lets you install a file for Delvers to Grow from Gaming Ballistic. (Gaming Ballistic have lots of cool stuff for DFRPG so look around there if you follow that link.)
