Thank you for you help, either way.
Okay. Grey, I bet if you added another 'role' to that Jam template you linked me, in descriptors.lua, it would suddenly give you a birth dialog. I decided on a whim to copy the Example descriptors in, which didn't work, but when I added a second Role descriptor into the original template file, it popped right up.
Now... idk where that dialog is or what it really does. ^.^ It really doesn't do anything I want it to do, I just couldn't figure out why in one module it was getting used and not in the other.
