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
• Check the load/encumbrance. If it is Medium than Max dex is +3. PHB, table 9-2, page 162. -- david Papa.DRB ... = ... right?) ... it ... since ... clean

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.

A quick way to check - look at his Armor Check penalty. It will be -3
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.... :)
