Assuming the correct (or good substitute) materials are available, duplicates of documents and hand-written notes may be created.
modifiers apply for the specific signature or writing or long works.
When the document is finished an initial average check is made by the DM to see if any obvious errors were made. The general result is known but not the exact figure. This result is then kept for the document. Each time the document is presented the examiners perception roll is checked against the document and modified by their knowledge of the document. A guard would have a fairly good knowledge of a castle pass but a merchant would not be familiar with a royal order to close their shop (but they might get it checked). Creation time is 2 hours+ per item.
