I have converted saving throws on my mud to a very simple formula. Since
they are on a scale of 1 to 100 with lower scores being better, I use:


saving throw = 91 - level;

Then each class has one save category where they get a bonus -15%
modifier. For warriors its paralyzation,  for wizards its magic, for priests
its fear. (I have changed the saving throw categories as well.)

This gives a first level character saves of 90% in all categories, except
their special one which is 75% and their saves will drop 1% each level.
This progression may seem a little slow, but it makes an item with -5% to
your save vs fire worth keeping.

Some of my races also get bonues to certain save categories. I can post
the code for my saving throws if anyone is interested.
