Filling Stats Box

This category is also famous with the name of the main body of the character sheet because it attains lots of information related to the ability of the character. It attains information regarding the ability modified, skills modifier, and many other abilities of the character. Now, let’s discuss all the things which are asked in the stats box.

Ability modifier

The first thing which is asked in the stat box is the ability modifier of the character. The ability modifier is the number of additional bonus points that you can add with the score you’ll get from the dice. Let us know with an example:- Suppose your ability modifier score is a+1 and you’ll get 10 after rolling your dice then your final score becomes 11.

Proficiency modifier 

This is the next thing that is asked in the stat box as a proficiency modifier. It is also called an additional some for the modifier. This score is used by players to upgrade their weapons. It is a fixed data so you can’t fill this data according to your preference. At the beginning of the game, the proficiency modifier score of every player is +2. So, you only have to add +2 in the box of proficiency modifiers.

Saving Throw

The next box attains the section of saving throw. The saving throw is an ability that helps the character to defend from the attack of another character. The calculation of saving throw is done with a combination of 2 types of scores which are Dexterity score and proficient modifier score. The sum of these 2 scores gives birth to the score of the saving throw.

For example:-

Suppose, your dexterity score is +2 and your proficient modifier score is +4 then your saving throw score becomes +6. If you’re still facing any problem to count your saving throw score then you can see the character sheet booklet.
