Saving throws do not seem to work as I expected and I am curious why.

With Saving Throw: 11 and bonus +1, I observed the following:

- A minus 1 modifier is applied to the die roll, which is the opposite of how a saving throw bonus works (the aim is to roll high)
- The roll fails or succeeds based on the un-modified die roll. In this example, a roll of 11 succeeds, even though a result of 10 is shown (due to the minus 1 modification applied).

Expected way of working:
- the +modifier increases the die roll result
- the save is made successfully when the modified die roll result is equal to or higher than the ST value

Was trying to create a multiclass character, Fighter/Magic User/Thief. The character sheet was only allowing for 2 classes. Am I missing something?

I only automated two classes.

From the rules under Elves: "Elven player characters may be Fighter/Magic-Users, Thieves, or Fighter/Magic-User/Thieves."

When multiclassing as a Fighter, the Strength to-hit and damage bonus does not turn on.

Short Bow is missing damage dice.

Long Sword +1 weighs 60 lbs?

I sent Matt an update several months ago to fix those issues in the player book. I will Ping him again.

I'll get the fighter multiclass strength issue updated after the Holiday.
