1. ## how do you calculate BAB, Initative, Fort, Reflex and Will?

how do you calculate
BAB
Initative
Fort
Reflex
Will

and for AC
TOUCH
FLATFOOTED

I usually use a character generator for this, but would like to know how to do it manually.

2. Shouldn't at least BAB and the base save bonuses be inferable from the class(es) of the character?

3. As for AC, touch is its (full AC) - (any armor or natural armor bonus), and flatfooted is (full AC) - (any dex bonus).

4. For BAB, Reflex, Fort, and Will saves:

Each character has levels in classes. There is a table for each class, giving the BAB and saves they have at each level. You simply add the BAB and base saves from each class the character has.

For Reflex saves, you also add in the dex bonus. For Fortitude, you add in Constitution bonus. For Will saves, you add in the character's wisdom bonus.

Well it seems this Q did come in handy afterall - I always thought natural armour stayed and Touch was full AC - Armour (oops )

I must admit I'm confused. Don't you have a PHB or SRD?

7. They might not. I didn't to start.

Check there mate.

8. If a class or creature has a good saving throw, it's equal to 1/2 HD +2. So a 6th-level fighter has a +5 base Fortitude save.

A bad saving throw is equal to 1/3 HD.

9. Of course, we're assuming he is talking about a character. Maybe he is talking about building something from scratch. Then again he could be totally new to D&D. It is kind of a mysterious post.

it's always good to know how things work manually.

there are different ways to calculate each of those things. if you could provide some examples, we could probably answer your questions better.
