I am trying to set up the racial bonus of +5 for saving against poison for dwarves. As there are no condition for being poisoned, it isn't possible to set a conditional test.
I am not sure how the "racial" bonus listed here http://www.fantasygrounds.com/wiki/index.php/4E_Effects works, but it seems like the bonus is given regardless of what the saving throw is used for.

What am I missing here?

Have you tried : SAVE: 1, poison

Saves don't have a type. Hence, effects for saves just have a bonus to the saving throw.

You will have to do it manually - i.e. the player can ask if the save is vs poison or not. If it is add a one roll +5 and roll the save.

I was supepcting as much, but got confused by the racial modifer listed on the effects page.

[bonus] is purely for stacking purposes.
