Negative Numbers in Dice Roll Totals
 
I saw some of my players make rolls tonight that gave them a final total of less than zero. Isn't there a limit somewhere? I thought you could never have a result less than 1 or possibly 0.

The math says the result should be lower than zero (-5 modifier and rolled a 2). But I thought thought the game rules stopped results from going that far.

Which rules system? Which types of rolls in that system?

Sorry.... Pathfinder 1ed, they were making skill checks and attack rolls.

Poking around the Archives of Nethys, I haven't seen anything that puts a lower limit on a check, attack roll, or saving throw. It's always "you succeed if you get (this number) or higher"; sometimes 1 and 20 auto fail/succeed.

Damage rolls have a minimum of 1 nonlethal, which is mostly reflected in your Shield Bash example.

Hope this helps.

Sounds good. Thanks for the clarification.
