    SAVE modifer in the effects system

    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?

    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.

    [bonus] is purely for stacking purposes.
