An attack roll represents a character's attempts to strike an opponent on the character's turn in a round. When a character makes an attack roll, he or she rolls 1d20 and adds his or her attack bonus
. If the result equals or beats the target's Defense
, the character hits and deals damage
. Many modifiers can affect the attack roll.
A natural 1 (the d20 comes up 1) on the attack roll is always a miss. A natural 20 (the d20 comes up 20) is always a hit. A natural 20 is also always a threat-a possible critical hit
If the character is not proficient in the weapon
he or she is attacking with (the character doesn't have the appropriate Weapon
), that character takes a -4 penalty on the attack roll.
