A Simpler Basic Action Template

I'm really fond of using the Basic Action Template from the Action 4 book of Gurps. But I recently realized that I don't use it as written in the book, because I mostly use it for quick NPCs. So this is the method I use:

And that's it! You now have a quick character with a fairly robust array of skills!

Index Of BAT Packages

I love Action 4: Specialists. And one thing I've done to make me love it more is sort the packages into categories so I can look at all my options at once and make good decisions. I've been using this list pretty much since Action 4 came out. Now I'm sharing it with you.

Most of these packages come from Action 4: Specialists, but some of them come from Pyramid 3/112, or from my posts about Melee Weapons for the BAT, using Action 4 with Infinite worlds, and Adapting Template Toolkit 3: Starship Crew. I have marked these with Py for Pyramid, m for melee, iw for infinite worlds, and sc for starship crew.
