      BONUS:SKILL|Tumble|max(DEX,STR)-DEX

          ... That s wrong, isn t it? What if you have a negative dex bonus. Eg. STR18 (+4) and DEX8 (-1). You would get a bonus of +5 on your skill. Marc

            That's wrong, isn't it? What if you have a negative dex bonus.
            Eg. STR18 (+4) and DEX8 (-1).
            You would get a bonus of +5 on your skill.

              Close, what will happen is that you will have a -1 to start with, due
              to your dex penalty.
              Total = KEYSTAT + Rank + Misc
              = (DEX) + Rank + ((DEXMAXSTR) - DEX)
              = (-1) + Rank + ((-1MAX4) - (-1))
              = (-1) + Rank + (4 - (-1))
              = -1 + Rank + (4 + 1)
              = -1 + Rank + 5
              = 4 + Rank

              Make sense?
