  1. For some reason I show the video as unavailable.

    It’s traditional to have the ability score in the main box, but I prefer the modifier for a simple reason.
    I use the modifier at least 20 times more often than the ability score. Heck, with only a few changes you could alter the game to just use the modifier.
