I'm using Genius Inc.'s DND Monster Maker, and I can't seem to make the tool show a Saving Throw bonus of +0 in its generated stat block. I'm trying to make a monster that has a -2 to Wisdom but has proficiency in Wisdom (so net +0 bonus), but it won't show.

As a work around, I put +10 in the Wisdom Save instead, and erased the 1 after printing the stat block out.

Is there any way to make the tool show a +0 save?

    \$\begingroup\$ Have you looked at the instructions? (I haven't used the tool myself, but step 15 does seem to explain the issue even if it makes sense to display it in your case.) \$\endgroup\$ – V2Blast Nov 26 '18 at 4:55

    \$\begingroup\$ @V2Blast I didn't see those instructions (I just scrolled down to find the elusive Download button hehe), thanks! The instructions don't say anything about my case, anyway, and I've contacted the creators. \$\endgroup\$ – daze413 Nov 26 '18 at 6:09

  • \$\begingroup\$ @L0neGamer I have not found an answer, and haven't received word from the creators yet. \$\endgroup\$ – daze413 Dec 29 '18 at 17:16
  • \$\begingroup\$ So, is the issue that it shows a -2 or that it doesn't show a +0? \$\endgroup\$ – Peregrine Lennert Feb 20 at 13:33

I think the issue here is that the tool doesn't show any score with a zero modifier, so you will just have to use the knowledge that if a saving throw or roll doesn't appear, it has a modifier of 0.

  • \$\begingroup\$ This isn't consistent with how the Monster Manual shows stat blocks. If your aim is to share it through media, this won't work. \$\endgroup\$ – daze413 Feb 21 at 12:42
  • \$\begingroup\$ Well @daze413 I didn't develop the tool, I am just guessing at why it might not show anything \$\endgroup\$ – Peregrine Lennert Feb 21 at 13:55
