Togglecheck (Rating: 1, Comments: 0)
At present, Wikidot's checkbox field for data forms will only display a 0 if unchecked or a 1 if checked.

There may be a list of possible skills, like Double Strike or Indomitable, which the user may check or uncheck depending on whether the character has the skill.
