comment How can I avoid players spending too much time planning?
I'm with @Falco -- game time and real time are different because either the characters are doing something that physically takes longer (I send a week travelling to the other town), or it just wouldn't be fun playing downtime (we spend a week resting). This meets neither of those requirements. YMMV, but as a player, I'd call foul if a GM said that.

comment Is there a good way to distribute pregenerated characters?
For the secret sheet, I sometimes put a "I was going to leave this blank because your character is transparent, but I figured you should have something to read. Feel free to laugh a bit or say 'oh, that will be fun when I betray everyone'."

comment Vast and expanded realistic combat system
I was coming into this to add GURPS. The Martial Arts book adds more in terms of different types of weapon parries (parrying with two weapons, for example), different types of attacks (for example, telegraphing your attack to give you a plus to hit and a plus to the opponent's defense), and maneuvers. If you want to get crunchy, I would look at GURPS + Martial Arts.

comment How do I handle moving to someone's back and attacking in GURPS?
Good question. I don't know. It was originally a comment, but I thought the detail on the Retreat rules warranted its own answer.
