    How is that even possible...

    Should I keep the total roll, and low STR, or re-roll lower total roll to have higher STR...

    I assume you mean a low percentile strength ? (ie 18/05 for example)
    In my opinion, keeping a high roll would be better, as there's some opportunities to raise your stats throughout the game, so any score of 18 will roll over to 19 regardless.

    There will be plenty of items that boost Strength to 19 and beyond. Definitely keep your high rolls in other stats.

    For the most part high str is not a big issue. There are a lot of ways to increase your str via items or spells or avoiding the issue by using spells or ranged weapons. Generally I would take high general stats and put them into other stats that are harder to improve.
