Problems updating d d character builder
Firstly it provides space for your 6 core stat scores (Str, Dex, Con, Wis, Int, Cha) and will automatically work out the appropriate modifier for that score.This is a very important section to get right as those stat modifiers are used in various places on the sheet!The total column actually shows you the total bonus that will be applied to your 1d20 roll with the exception of any entry in the global bonus section as stated earlier.The final column here (highlighted with a blue background) is the passive score for a particular skill.You then can check which stats you have saving throw proficiency in as well as automatically seeing how much of a bonus each save throw gets and indeed make a save throw for a particular stat.Know that your initiative total (the total bonus your initiative rolls will get), your overall level, your proficiency bonus, and your Armour Class (normal and unarmoured) are all auto-calculated from entries you make elsewhere in the sheet.Below the list of skills there are 4 slots to allow people to add in any custom skills or tools they may want to use (most commonly things like Thieves tools would be put in here). (talk) , 17 December 2015 (EST) This section is simply a lot of space to record as many or as few details about your character as you want.Specifically it is focused on the roleplaying elements of your character like their traits, bonds, etc....
You should remember that the core stat modifier (STR, DEX, etc..) that you would normally add for a skill is already automatically applied.
This is simply a way of tracking usages of things like a clerics channel divinity, a monk's Ki points, a paladins Lay on Hands healing pool, a Barbarians rage, etc...
Thirdly, There are large text areas to allow you to note down any class features/abilities or notes that you may find useful.
The sheet also allows you to track whether you have or do not have Inspiration (click to toggle), whether you have succeeded or failed on any death save throws, and of course what your current and maximum (auto calculated) hit die are based on your class levels..you can use a hit die by clicking the button next to the one you want to use.
Finally, in the bottom left corner is the "Active Bonuses/Penalties" area.
