comment How should I handle nerfing a player for the purposes of game balance?
That's the main thing. Because of how we stat vs. how some other chapters stat (namely, they don't allow his Infection and they don't allow multiple Alterations), he is nowhere near as powerful in other places as he is at our chapter. That said, the reason he has the Infection is central to a major campaign plot, wherein he was, for a time, undercover among the PCs and leaking information to the bad guys. Now that he's no longer undercover, he is still leaking information to them. He just managed to convince the PCs that they're not bad guys.

He has, however, been agreeable to certain types/degrees of nerfing - so long as it does not defeat the purpose of his character concept.

comment How should I handle nerfing a player for the purposes of game balance?
Asking him to leave isn't an option as he is a Chapter Owner. He is not interested in a permanent Plot or NPC position, but I have considered making his character a local NPC. The main issue with making him an NPC is that NERO characters are able to travel to other chapters(which he does, frequently), and as an NPC (unless I pulled some shenanigans) he would lose that ability.

You could also add in "Weapon Focus (Long Sword)" for a further +1 attack bonus to both hands.

The dice aren't necessarily biased. Khaal could also be rolling in a way that causes his dice to be lower more often than not.

comment Balancing players' rolls, not characters
I found a related product online (discontinued, apparently?) that could be used for this purpose. dicecards.com/bits Playing cards where each of the cards has a d4 - d20 on it, as well as other random elements. Only 40 of the cards have a d20: you could keep any number of those (3 perhaps) and use those to trigger the reshuffle.

No luck with regard to a video for pulling blows... I'll add some generic tips as well as another of my favorite videos that illustrates fast, but soft swings.
