In order to make the game flow better and make it easier to keep track of skills and modifiers I created a set of cards. I have a trait card for all the traits my characters use (quick reference) and then cards for all the modifiers. I place the relevant modifier card under the character card when taking a test.

I find this makes it much easier to run more characters (especially in a solo campaign). Another thing that I found works well is to show the characters strength as a dice symbol showing the strength in pips. I then put the rolled die right next to it and it makes it faster to add the two together. For some reason its much harder for my brain to deal with numbers represented in two different symbolic forms.

Here's Arthur's warband fighting the black witch and a great Wyrm.
