First Let's Try to Understand What Ability Scores Are:
Ability scores are a way to measure the physical and mental characteristics of your character!
Ability checks, savings throws, and attack rolls all use your ability score modifiers.
To explain ability checks, I’m going to use the ever-famous tomato metaphor.
Then Let's Convert Your Ability Score to Your Modifier For Ability Checks
Use this chart to figure out your roll modifier compared to your ablity scores!
For an easy way to calculate your modifier without the chart, subtract 10 from your ability score and then divide that number by two and then round down.
Modifiers will be used more often than ability scores. You’ll want to have your modifiers handy at all times!
