Hi Everyone,

I have a new player in the game, a halfling wizard, whose AC is one
point less than it should be.

His DEX stat is a modified 18 (base 16 + 2 for halfling) and he's
wearing no armor.

Looking at the AC boxes his total AC is 14, flatfooted 11, touch 14 =
base 10 + armor 0 + sheild 0 + stat 3 (s/b 4 from DEX modifier, right?)
+ size 1 + misc. 0

Why is it not picking up his total DEX bonus of +4? How do I fix it
without having to do his whole character over again - especially since
we're playing in less than 6 hours (and I still have a house to clean
and laundry to do :) )!

Thanks!

Dawn

Encumbrance penalty.

You get the character to drop some of the booty he's carrying. :)

Wait a second - let me double-check that. I've been dealing with
another character and I've got him in my mind. Let me check the
encumbrance and then I'll get back to you.

if at medium load (and not wearing any armor like you mention.) Not
Armor check from encumbrance isn't a big deal for a wizard, but for a
rogue.... :)
