TYPES OF ROLL

Attack roll
1d20 + 1/2 lvl + abil mod + enhancement + misc vs. AC or a NAD

Determines whether an attack hits. Weapon attacks are usually against AC; magic, unarmed (e.g. grab, bull rush), and improvised (e.g. drop a chandelier) attacks are usually against a NAD. Often followed by a damage roll.

Damage roll
Varying numbers of dice (d4s to d12s) + abil mod + enhancement + misc

Determines how hard an attack or effect hits.

Fort/Ref/Will save
1d20 + (Fort/Ref/Will defense - 10) vs. atk bonus + 10

Determines whether you can avoid an attack; alternative to attack roll. Particularly appropriate if attacker is nonsentient (e.g. trap, environmental hazard) or defender is pulling some kind of stunt. Not actually a saving throw!

Saving throw
1d20 + misc vs. 10

Roll at the end of your turn to determine if a (save ends) effect wears off.

Skill check
1d20 + 1/2 lvl + abil mod + 5 (if trained) + misc vs. easy/med/hard DC

Like an attack roll, but for noncombat situations and stunts. e.g. If you jump off of a ledge to attack an enemy below, you roll a skill check to pull off the leap correctly and an attack roll to actually hit the guy.

Ability check
1d20 + 1/2 lvl + abil mod vs. easy/med/hard DC

Like a skill check for situations where skill is irrelevant. e.g. breaking down a door is purely a matter of strength, not technique. I occasionally give a +5 bonus if the subject has massive natural talent; e.g. Huge creatures get +5 to many Str checks, computers get +5 to Int checks about quick computation.

Initiative roll
1d20 + 1/2 lvl + Dex mod + misc

Roll at the beginning of combat to determine turn order. Also works like an ability check for reaction time.
