I'll have to give that a try.
That's how I do it. Haste round, normal round, extra attacks.

Re: Awarding XP

Initially I allowed my PCs to level when they rest but it tended to bog the game down because of the 3 spell-casters looking up spells while the 2 the non-casters twiddled their thumbs. Now I just do end of session, as is recommended.

That's pretty cool. Looks like it would be at the header of a page in the old Vampire: The Masquerade book.

Re: Feedback for small addition to Fighters

Combat Options is the best way to go I think. Makes Fighters more interesting without adding too much bloat or upsetting balance. I have found that players derive a lot of roleplaying satisfaction from specializations.

Re: Idea: Soak

DR or Damage Resistance, a coveted effect in DnD 3.5 where I started. I've considered introducing it but the more I run BFRPG the less I miss the mechanics I'm used to which are not present.

You can also order a hardcover from DriveThruRPG. That's where I got one and the quality is excellent.
