OK. Kick me in the face if you must, but Classic Trav combat does not work. No way. No how. Sorry. The modifiers at closer ranges just pile up to mince a foe.

What do you do?

This is what I do: I use free-form movement rule (ditching the rangebands), and I use most other rules, but apply armour DMs to damage and not to-hit.

I also use more general Mercenary-style combat skills.

There are a number of other tweaks I use, but ... what do YOU do??

I also use a formalized skill mechanic with combat. Read about it here:
