So THAT is the calculation method! THAT'S SO OBVIOUS IN RETROSPECT.
Story time today is about facepalm moments.
I'll start.
I am an - as yet unpublished - author by trade, and sometimes, one of the things I do to amuse myself is try and build D&D characters who resemble the characters I write about. Not to play, you understand, but just as a fun thing to do.
Sometimes, however, I need stats to go higher then I have reference materials for, and so I would wind up spending forever working out that the mod for 30 is 10, or that the mod for 100 is 45, BY COUNTING TO GET THERE.
…Yeah, that is pretty boring. But on the bright side, I'll never have to do it again!

You can also get the same result by subtracting 10 and dividing by 2.

That's my preferred method, but both work.

Thanks for summing up in one strop why I refuse to play anything after 2E. D20 is a blight and an affliction, and most irritating is the way WotC snapped up games like Star Wars, with the simplest rolling system ever devised, and converted it into this mess.

"I Am Become Editor, Taker of Bait"
Summed up in one strip. Honest typo.
I sense some bad experiences with d20. There are enough systems for everyone, but I like them all so far.

Don't forget Adin's shield bonus! That polearm is parried, yo!
I wonder when armor's max DEX bonus will come up.
