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.

I believe this is on topic for the site currently per meta.rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/609/…. Those dissenting may VTC and take discussion to meta as desired.

comment Is there a genre-agnostic RPG as complex as Aftermath RPG?
I think this is clear enough as a question now. Someone not familiar with the Aftermath RPG should clearly not answer; the OP is not under any responsibility to explain it in order to ask a question.

No, the 3.5e rule was "you take -4 to hit an opponent in melee, period." See "Shooting or Throwing into Melee" on the d20 SRD. But clearly your GM, like so many, house ruled it to make it more interesting.

comment Finding a system which allows the setting of SWAT / hostage rescue
Nothing homebrew, but the stuff from Commando is significant expansion for small unit tactical stuff.
