I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

Could work. Somewhat similar to "make all checks complex checks."

Potentially workable. Seems like you might as well dump the entire existing skill system and GURPS it though at that point.

Hence my question about actual game mods - you are admitting the same thing I've experienced, which is that dice failure=task failure is the most common way of running BRP.

comment How do I get my PCs to not be a bunch of murderous cretins?
The problem is that in historical wars, there's some sense of definition of "it's us against the French for a limited time." PCs take this to "it's us against whoever we happen to be around forever."
