Adding 0d6! 0+0 is still 0

Hi quick question how do you add 0d6 from the reach table (or any other modifier) to the score of successes this has totally confused me as I can't see how this benefits you as if you add zero there's no change to the result. Probably missing something really simple but I can't see it!

So, first off, to which game are you referring? Do you have a page reference?

Just a place holder so you know that the weapon was accounted for.

You can find Reach back in CR 3.0 Swordplay 2009 version.

Sorry it's from RSBM the reach table for weapons says add 0d6 to successes. If you add 0 to a number it doesn't change so what am I missing?

You're not missing anything. Some (most) weapons don't have a significant Reach advantage. They have "zero Reach". Some of the longer weapons have "one Reach". They could have just left the "zero Reach" weapons off of the list, but then, later, when you're told to add the reach to your successes, you'd be confused if you were looking for the Reach of your hand axe.

So, yeah, +0 successes is no benefit.
