    Noob Question about Temporary Ability Damage

    Hello,

    Only question to come out of our trial run last night - If a PC casts a spell that reduces ability score (i.e. Ray of Enfeeblement) on an NPC, how is that applied to the NPC? I couldnt find in the combat tracker a place to reduce the strength score, and ended up manually using a modifier for each roll that it was applicable to, but didnt know if that was the best way...

    Thanks!

    Not sure... Did you try to apply the correct effect to the NPC such as "STR:-2" ?

    No - I checked the effects but didnt see one that is applicable. I am assuming that would be a custom effect? If so, would that be a -2 to the score, or to the modifier?

    Thanks

    See the "Abilities" section of the Modifiers table here: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/wiki/...ects#Modifiers

    STR applies temporary damage (if it's negative) to the ability score. STR:-2 is 2 points of STR damage.

    Note: In PF1 you don't actually apply temp damage directly to the ability score, instead every 2 points of damage results in a -1 modifier. Hence STR:-1 doesn't do anything, STR:-2 or STR:-3 results in a -1 penalty, etc..
