Hmmm, that's strange. Anyone else with this problem? Did you have this problem with Release 2, or is it just with the new Release 3?

It works fine on my PC and on my Android tablet, so it might be a Mac thing. I've added an "ISO 19005-1 compliant" pdf (whatever that is :? ) to the download page, so give that a try. Otherwise, as I'm not a pdf expert, I'm rather stuck. I've been creating the pdf directly from Microsoft Word. Anyone with any suggestions?

Skill Caps

The six ability skills (Force, Reasoning, Perception, ... etc.) are capped at five times the character's relevant ability score (page 4 of the BFQ supplement). So, for example, a character with a Strength of 10 can never raise their Force ability skill above 50%.

The other skills (weapons, casting, thief, cleric) aren't capped, but given that a given skill can only increase 1% - 4% per adventure, and that it becomes progressively harder to make skill improvement rolls as you get better at a skill, I don't think this will be a major problem. It will take any character a long, long time to reach a high level of proficiency in every skill, in which case they've probably earned it.

The compliant PDF works for me. :)

An elegant algorithm!

Worked fine on my PC. I actually thought to myself, "the print looks better than the first version." I'm not sure why or what you did, but thought it was better organized.
