  • Ranged combat characters are generally going to want a second combat ability, as neither Archery nor Thrown have a defensive option built in. Most characters take Dodge, which personally I consider a combat ability. Behind that, I've seen a fair amount of Thrown paired with Melee (throwers are often holding a pointy thing that can serve as a potential melee parry weapon) and Archery with Brawl (archers don't generally want to parry with a bow, unless they want to end up with a broken stick instead of a primary weapon).

    Sometimes, if I'm playing a character with some fighting in their...

    I'm pretty sure you can do the same action twice (at least, I'm not aware of anywhere it is forbidden), but there aren't a lot of combat actions described in the rules so you'd have to come up with one that would make sense to do twice. Attacks would make conceptual sense to, say, attempt to attack two opponents, but attacking twice in a mixed action is explicitly forbidden. Likewise, using two simple boons is another thing you might want to do, but is also forbidden. Possibly feats of strength type stuff?
