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.

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.
