Default Re: Placement of Talents in the Rules

Steve said somewhere that Melee was first written due to his extreme dissatisfaction with the combat rules in existing RPGs (and let's face it, D&D style combat rules were all there were, even if they were re-skinned as blasters and ablative armor). So it makes perfect sense that you could easily do that. (And good on you for doing so! I was always too lazy!)

Wizard, on the other hand, was created more to fit in with Melee than to work as a substitute for the existing Vancian magic system. So it makes sense it would be a lot harder to use as a substitute unless you simply ripped out the existing system and replaced it wholesale with Wizard.
