Well, as a 17 now.

that's how it SHOULD work, but I started a new playthrough yesterday, and in dialog Intelligence rolls, it actually depicts my -1 I have because I have 8 Int, and then, weirdly, a +4 from the Headband. It's really strange, and not how it should work.

Yeah, I noticed that, too with my elf ranger. Obviously cheap hardware. I'll need to get it replaced with something more effective in the future. Probably only 10k gold anyway. If that. Hafling made, too. Bleh.
