I took the Steadfast Personality feat on my swashbuckler and my CHA bonus is +4. I also took the traits Freed Slave and Indomitable Will, which each add +1 to my Will saves. I also have a + 3 Cloak of Resist and my character is Lvl 11, so has a base +3 Will save. Thus, my Will save modifier should be 12 (3 Base + 3 Magic + 6 [4+1+1] Misc). However, I only see a +11 Will save (instead of 12) since there is only a +5 in the Misc column (when there should be a + 6), so something isn't properly stacking. After removing both traits to see where the discrepancy was, I noticed that the discrepancy seems to be on the Freed Slave Trait as it isn't adding to my Will save total.
I’ll take a look, but unless specified otherwise, Trait Bonuses don’t stack. Freed Slave (Trait) and Indomitable Will (Trait) would not stack, unless the bonus is stated as different.
Freed Slave - “You gain a +1 trait bonus on Will saves.” - Inner Sea Primer
Indomitable Will couldn’t find any trait with that name, but I found Indomitable Faith.
Indomitable Faith - “You gain a +1 trait bonus on Will saves.” - Ultimate Campaign.
Anyways, not a bug, working properly according to the Game System rules on like bonuses only take the highest value.
Rules system not clearly understood by OP. Explained rules and the program as working in the intended fashion. Will not alter the program.
Yeah, I’m relatively new to the D20 system, so thre are some details I’m still fuzzy on, admittedly. But Freed Slave is a Regional Trait and Indomitable Faith (you’re correct, “Indomitable Will” was an error on my part) is a Religion Trait.
Asking for confirmation: so two different traits that give a bonus to the same Saving Throw cannot stack, even if they’re from different categories of traits? (Damn, that sucks, now I’ll have to find a new trait to put there, preferably one that gives a bonus to Fort saves.)
Bonuses of the same type regardless of source do not stack. There are some few exceptions to that rule but in this case the bonus type is Trait.
