comment How do I make and use tactically interesting terrain?
No weapons and silence weren't really what I had in mind. I see those as more like parameters or blanket conditions for the fight rather than terrain. I can see how they'd force the players to be more reliant on terrain though. Maybe I should put the players in situations where they have to think smart to win rather than think smart to win 1 round earlier.

comment Are there maneuver options for non-combat skills?
@gomad 4th, I think. I'm not too involved in GURPS, which is why I need help finding rules I suspect exist.

That looks exactly like what I was looking for. Do any of the other GURPS books enumerate more such skill techniques? Well, yes of course they do, it's GURPS. Where can I find more such skill techniques? Also are there any generic techniques? I like to use something that reduces time spent on a skill like First Aid that takes 30 minutes to apply.

comment How can I depict three dimensional combats?
@wax, yes. @dpatch, the plastic box dice come in is the right size for a mini to fit under while supporting one on top. It wouldn't work so well for stacks of more than two characters, but in my 16 years of gaming, I've never seen that happen.

comment Is there a way to make the damage system in 4e more like previous editions?
@C. Ross, TY but I can't take credit for it. It was in several LFR mods and for the longest time I assumed that was how you were supposed to punish certain failures.
