Seems like it's time for this discussion again *sigh*. There are TWO
different kind of tests in SR: SUCCESS tests and RESISTANCE
tests. Resistance Tests are unaffected by modifiers (yes, this DOES
mean drain and wound staging as well as spell resistance).

ONLY the SUCCESS tests are affected by modifiers.

Of course this is all AFAIK and so on. I am really getting tired of
having to tell this three times a year, maybe I should do a crontab
entry. ;-)
