Not that this would come up often, but how do most handle "critical" success odds for Renaissance and compatible rule systems? The rules (paraphrased) spell out that the critical chance is 10% of the character's skill. However, modifiers can alter a character's skill, taking the rules ultra-literally, a modifier would not affect the percentage for a critical. But as a matter of preference, do those who play/GM these rules calculate the chance of a critical based on the modified skills (regardless of whether the modifier is a penalty or bonus), or do you generally keep the critical odds as 10% of the character's base skill level, and only apply the modifer to the overall success or failure? I'd love to hear people's thoughts on this. I am also working on updating the Roll20 character sheet for Renaissance (and related games), and was going to add automatic skill rolls into the sheets, which would require had math being encoded into the rolls.... So whatever the majority is leaning towards, is likely how I would code the math on the character sheet there.
