I'm having an issue with skill checks that I think is a bug. My character has +2 charisma and proficiency in persuasion, but I've been rolling 1-4 on checks. Shouldn't 1-4 be impossible since I have +4?
My apologies if this isn't a bug and I've just misunderstood the game mechanics!
So say if normally the check is 15, but your is +2 charisma and your proficiency bonus is +3 , then the dice you roll you need to meet is a 10. I could be wrong obviously, but that's what I thought has been going on.
Technically it doesn't lower the DC, but the die roll needed to pass the skill check. The game kind of follows in the same vein as Pathfinder: Kingmaker by displaying the minimum needed after all modifiers have been taken into account.
