Every time i lvl up, i get the lvl-up results ..
It states " death saving throws decreased by -2 "
Is this a bad or a good thing ??
I mean, is a low Saving throw better then a high one ?

Its a good thing, the lower the better.

I think it goes something like this. If you someone casts a spell that lets you have a saving throw (lets say save vs. spell), and you have a saving throw of 2, than it would roll a 20 side die. it must roll 3, 4, 5... 20 to affect you.

correct me if im wrong

sounds pretty good to me [img]smile.gif[/img]

If you have a saving throw of 8 , that would mean you'd have to roll the 20 sided dice and get 9-20 in order to neglect the effects.

Thx man !!

Example, your saving throw is 5. The computer rolls a 20-sided dice( D20) and checks against your saving throw. It needs 4 and lower to affect you. If it rolls 5 and above, you pass your saving throw.

Note though, 1 is always a failure, and 20 is always a pass.

The 20D adjusts accordingly. If your saving throw is -2, then the dice values range from -2 - 18.

You will only fail when the dice rolls -2. If you activate dicerolls to appear in your battletext, you will see the computer roll negative values occasionally.
