    Mythmere pushed a small update to the Core Books today. We fixed a few minor typos. Thanks for the feedback.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    Unfortunately, the modifier under "save rolls" does not seem to have any effect.

    A suggestion for a minor improvement: on the Abilities tab the Class Abilities section has the list edit buttons, but the Skills section does not. It would be nice to have the buttons for both or for neither, only for consistency (both can be edited with the right-click menu).

    And a request: is it possible to use a lighter gray color for the char sheet and the value boxes on the char sheet? I find the black letters and numbers a bit hard to read against the current dark grey background.
