magic resistance and saves from an rp perspective
The title captures my questions. Saves improve as you gain levels, suggesting they're more than just luck, however if they're your characters naturally improving ability to resist spells, what is the difference between that and magic resistance (in principle rather than in application as I realise there is no roll required if magic resistance kicks in).
Is this just another quirk of 2e?
