I only really use crouch to go under something or to get on the same level of an enemy usually rats or spiders. Maybe it should be similar to how Chameleon and Invisibility work with one making you harder to see/hear and one making it nearly impossible for you to be seen/heard. I have never really focused on the stealth system in Daggerfall but even so it randomly seems to occur, allowing me to walk up to a mob without them noticing.

Yes, that's how the Stealth skill works (passive check) in both classic Daggerfall and DFU. Actually entering active "sneak" mode, by making your character move more slowly, merely increases your existing chance of a successful Stealth check. viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1831&start=10#p26824. Crouch has nothing whatsoever to do with this.

No one with any sense. But I might move silently through the whole dungeon and frequently do. Move silently and get a backstab with a critical strike and bam! Dead vampire or sorcerer or whatever.
Its just backstab. :) Crit strike doenst do more damage.
