Crit Hit Damage Calc Question

General Discussion

Crits Page 306 - “Add double any circumstance and conditional bonuses and penalties to damage.”

Wanted to see how folks are reading this? Or if there has been clarification from Paizo.

It reads to me that we should double penalty as well as the bonuses. Doubling a negative number would net in a larger negative... which doesn't feel very crit like... why should a debuff double in power in this situation?

If anything, it seems like we should zero out the penalty on a crit or apply the penalty as normal.

You double absolutely everything, modifiers included, except damage that only gets added on a crit (e.g. 'deadly' dice).

You're on page 308 not 306 btw.
