So I've got a few items that give bonuses to stats and skills, most importantly the Ring of Influences, and I just noticed that when I go to the character screen, it doesn't show the bonuses. My Charisma is still 13, despite the +3 the ring gives me. Is this normal, or should they be displayed?

You are correct; they should. I just tested this with an old build, and when I took off the ring, my BE and CH both dropped by 3, as they were supposed to.

If the ring isn't adding a bonus (and your CH stat isn't turning green to indicate it) then I have to admit that I don't know what's going on. It could be a glitch, or a cursed item you're unaware of, or something else. When you take the ring off, do your CH and BE drop by 3 each?
This ring is magickal, isn't it? I suppose you have to have some magickal aptitude for this ring to be working, just like for Charmed/Magick/Mystic/Arcane Ring.

Thanks for the replies folks, I haven't played Arcanum for a long time so I couldn't remember how it worked.

I made a custom background, so that might be causing the bug. I'll try seeing what happens if I get a magical aptitude.

If you look at the ring in your inventory, does the information box at the bottom of the screen show a "magick power available" percentage? This tells you whether you are receiving the full benefit of the magickal item based on your magickal aptitude. If your aptitude is low, you may get only, say, 50% of the bonus, or even 0% if your aptitude is very low. If you have a technologically-focused character, then your magickal aptitude may be so low that the ring simply doesn't work for you at all.
