If someone rolls a 1 on their save vs a fear effect do they soil themselves? Ok, not really important but I can't be the only one who's thought about this.
Unless an ability says otherwise, I let players figure out when their characters retain control of bodily functions.
Rolling a 1 is simply an automatic failure and nothing more, everything else that happens after that is GM Fiat territory and the GM can make up whatever he wants. Any additional stuff like "you fail to overcome the fear effect, in fact, you become so overwhelmed with fear..." that you: "...toss your weapons into the river and prostrate yourself before the BBEG", or "...soil yourself, and then break a tooth from your teeth chattering so badly" or "...start sobbing like a small child with a scraped knee while begging for mercy". Any of these are acceptable for the additional GM fiat conditions of a 1 roll on a fear effect :P
