The charactersheet handles skills like standard D20. Skills work diffrently in IH, making the standard funktions of the charactersheet useless. Sometimes even misleading.

I'm afraid that one was my fault, Hefsgaard, so I'll take a look at it.

Thanks - Its still usable, for playing. but less experienced players keep getting it wrong :-)

If I had Any experience with XML programing, I would have sent suggestions. Still can ;-) but only to funktion or design.

How about making Skill groups a List, and linking to that instead of linking to levels? Perhaps even including Group levels in the Skillcheck total?

Design wise, I think I would halve the Box with Ranks and level-link, move it to the right, and extend the Skill Groups box into the vacant space. That way there would be room for the 6 groups required, which is max. I think.

I've made some changes to the ruleset which are being reviewed at the moment. The skill group system is a bit too complex to automate easily, so the box to the lower right is meant to be more of a notepad area to keep track of these things. It is a text box, which means you can type more lines than it shows and it will scroll automatically. Unfortunately the FG engine doesn't allow you to add scrollers etc to plain text controls ... yet.

The main skills list should now be more intuitive - there is no class skill/cross-class skill distinction.

Hopefully this will hit a shelf near you soon, and my appologies for having caused the trouble in the first place!
