Some armors apply disadvantage to stealth regardless of proficiency.

That would be a seperate list.
As would attack rolls and AC.

Inexplicably, by RAW, the Paralyzed, Petrified, Stunned and Unconscious conditions don't automatically fail those checks(!); rather, they fail those saves...

However, I think it's pretty safe to assume that a creature affected by any of those would automatically fail a check too.

Just pointing out what seems to me be to a rather large oversight by the designers.

Oh, good catch.
Kinda funny that you can more easily grab a statue of a 200lbs fat wizard then a statue of a 200lbs muscled barbarian.

Since you've listed Reliable Talent, you might consider Glibness, which operates in a similar fashion. Double-check me on all of this, but I believe it's an 8th level spell available to bards and locks that makes Charisma-based checks have a minimum 15 roll for an hour.

It has the added benefit of fooling any lie-detecting magic.

Thanks for the list, btw. It's proven useful!

Kind of a funny thing about Remarkable Athlete vs. Jack of All Trades, one gives half-proficiency rounded up, and the other is rounded down. They couldn't even be consistent with that...

The barbarian obviously has an oiled physique.

How about list what can be affected by ability modifiers bonuses/penalties. Example Bardic Inspiration affects Initiative, Counterspell, Dispel Magic, etc

About the only skills they might be forced to attempt would be opposed checks. Of those, opposed Athletics/Acrobatics checks to resist grapples/shoves is about the only one that comes to mind.
