Im seem to be missing the point on whether Im setting or logging variables and if they have to be local or global.
1) I want to pass a variable (status name [DEX]) from the ability (Breath weapon) to a formula that performs the saving throw (based upon variable [DEX])
2) The variable is going to be part of the "target change.value Change" for hit Points on the attack
3) The formula (calculating dam w/ a Saving throw) would load (set/log?) the variable in initial state and then evaluate by checking the targets' DEX score and then further performing the saving throw.
The variable doesn't seem to pass into the formula at all, my test calc is always zero
