Brawling and Melee
In order to make Brawl more worthwhile I want to add a bonus from having ranks in the Brawl to using some Melee weapons. This is to represent the players ability to fight in close quarters.
The way this will work in game will be that if a PC has Ranks in Brawl this will correspond extra Boost dice to the dice pool to a maximum of 3 extra Boosts. This will work as follows:
2 Ranks = 1 Boost
4 Ranks = 2 Boosts
6 Ranks = 3 Boosts
This means players with ranks in Brawl but no Ranks in Melee will still be viable with some melee weapons.
This is only applicable with certain weapons (small one handed melee weapons; knives, batons, etc)
