When rolling for instance perception for initiative do penalties for things like precipitation apply? Would it matter or change the application if someone else in the encounter were rolling stealth?
Personally, I would give a bonus to stealth instead of a penalty to perception. This would make it more likely someone would beat the perception DC.
If everyone is rolling perception for initiative, adding a penalty to everyone has no meaningful effect as they are only ranked not success/fail.
