Hi, so first off I totally respect Adam’s ruling on this as a dungeon master, and please don’t crucify me for bringing it back up from chat, but I do still have some thoughts on the concentration save. I mostly just want to understand his reasoning for rolling a 1 autofailing that save.
I think of concentration saves more like an opposed roll, where it’s half damage vs. Con save. If something is doing so little damage that it’s hitting the floor of 10, and my Con score is enough to pass even if I roll a 1, then an auto-pass seems fine to me in the context of an opposed roll. Adam’s argument was there needs to be a way to fail the save, but the way you do that is hitting hard enough to make the save higher.
Great show! Sorry to be the rules nerd, but I find it interesting and Adam has a lot of knowledge about this stuff!
