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!

The checks don't show the final check, they're the diceroll itself. Your skills change the DC you need to hit instead of upping the roll (so your +2 on your skill is making the DC 2 lower instead)

I think it's the 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.

Ahhhh I see, so it lowers your DC rather than effecting the dice roll. Very helpful, thanks!

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.
