This one is fixed in next update, i found the offending code and changed it to working one.
On the main topic, there is no resolution yet as i seek for the way to avoid running through every spell script to check it.
I am glad. I mentioned this almost a year ago, but nothing got done. I am surprised no-one else noticed. BTW the CL message displayed at the log window already helps alot, even if it is not correct for things such as SLAs

As i checked our commit log, other Dev did actually fix it in july of 2021, but they seem have been too used to python syntactic sugar, so they wrote their code using it which kinda doesn't work in nwnscript :P

Agreed, i found it really useful. Since we already removed that feature from live, i had to manually add it for my local testing setup in order to troubleshoot which exact part was failing. Btw, you correctly identified the source of issue - it was dragon disciple giving 9 progression instead of 7 at lvl 10, because condition block never triggered it's right part since nwnscript doesn't support ( n < Var < n) style of comparisons.

Penetrating Blasts seems to have a similar bug.

Not a bug. Penetrating Blasts gives +4 to CL for the purposes of spell penetration.

Although, looks like this value might be getting used on spell properties dependent on caster level rather than just penetrating SR. Hmm.

Not yet. Won't be fixed in next patch as making such thing right would require me to rewrite our spellcasting framework (and it's something i plan to do). So i didn't make some bandaid and just focused on next patch. After it, i will come to this topic.
