Green Flame Blade and Negative Modifiers

If you have a negative spell-casting modifier (let’s say -1 in Intelligence) and cast Green Flame Blade (at a level below 5th). What damage does the second creature take? None, -1, or round off to 1 damage?

For reference:

Green Flame Blade

As part of the action used to cast this spell, you must make a melee attack with a weapon against one creature within the spell’s range, otherwise the spell fails. On a hit, the target suffers the attack’s normal effects, and green fire leaps from the target to a different creature of your choice that you can see within 5 feet of it. The second creature takes fire damage equal to your spellcasting ability modifier. This spell’s damage increases when you reach higher levels.*

Booming Blade or Green Flame Blade: Utility against creatures with immunity to non-magical damage?

Both Booming Blade and Green Flame Blade have the following text:

You make a single melee weapon attack against a creature you can see within the spell’s range. If the attack hits…

Reading this question makes me believe that a weapon which has been magically enchanted or enhanced, even temporarily, would overcome this immunity, and that both base weapon damage and cantrip damage would apply on a hit (and double on a critical hit).

Question: What damage, if any, would be generated by attacking a creature (with immunity to damage from non-magical weapons) with a non-magical weapon as part of a Booming Blade or Green Flame Blade attack?

Do colors red and green necessarily signify opposites

In some cultures red signifies stop and green go – stop and go can be considered opposites. Is it really different in other cultures?

But suppose I wanted to show a screen with only two buttons, possibly of different shapes, each for a different kind of action. So action 1 and action 2 are not opposites. Is it a good idea to make one of the buttons green and the other red?

Does the Symbiotic Entity damage apply to a creature hit by the secondary damage of Green Flame Blade?

For a Circle of Spores Druid, they are able to add 1d6 Poison Damage to their Melee Weapon Attacks while their Symbiotic Entity feature is active.

At 2nd level, you gain the ability to channel magic into your spores. […] While this feature is active, you gain the following benefits:

  • […]
  • Your melee weapon attacks deal an extra 1d6 poison damage to any target they hit.

These benefits last for 10 minutes, until you lose all these temporary hit points, or until you use your Wild Shape again.

Circle of Spores, Guildmaster’s Guide to Ravnica, pg. 27

When a [melee weapon] attack from Green Flame Blade hits a target, the spell causes an adjacent creature to also take damage:

[…] On a hit, the target suffers the attack’s normal effects, and green fire leaps from the target to a different creature of your choice that you can see within 5 feet of it. The second creature takes fire damage equal to your spellcasting ability modifier.

Green Flame Blade, Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide, pg. 143

For the purposes of Symbiotic Entity (or any other feature that adds damage to “any targets hit by Melee Weapon Attacks”), does the extra damage (on the second target) associated with Green Flame Blade count as being hit by that damage, making them eligible for the extra poison damage from Symbiotic Entity, or does being “hit” by an effect necessarily involve an Attack Roll?

Does the Green Flame-Blade cantrip work with the Zephyr Strike spell?

Does the Green-Flame Blade cantrip work with the Zephyr Strike spell?

Specifically, I am unsure as to whether the Zephyr Strike spell requires you take the Attack action. It states: “Once before the spell ends, you can give yourself advantage on one weapon attack roll on your turn.” I’m unsure whether the making of this attack would fall under the Attack action, or if it could work in conjunction with Green-Flame Blade.

Why green on green bar paper?

One of the biggest business application my company builds uses green and white as the alternating background color in tables. This is due to the green bar paper used in former decades with line printers. I was wondering why they chose green.

Wikipedia only states that it was used to help the reader stay in one line, however this is, in my opinion, a consequence of the alternating background and not specially due to the green color.

Does anybody know why they particularly chose green and not any other color? Is that due to any ergonomic/usability reason?
