how do saves work?
« on: November 09, 2019, 08:43:54 AM »
i've found a couple of saving spell by -1 items and i've been trying to figure out what it means.  is this based on the old D&D saves system?

Yes, the saving throws system works similarly to the rules for AD&D.

In which a negative affect to your saving throw is beneficial.

So those -1 saving_spell items you're turning up are useful!

To clear up another potentially confusing stat or two..

Saves are good negative.  Resists are positive.

Apply is good positive (damage mit), ac is good negative (evasion).

Can't think of other stats which might confuse.
