I'm trying to create a skill that would make a certain party member attract all incoming enemy attacks for a few turns. How could this be done?

Makes sense. I totally forgot this word "taunt" :D I'll take a look. Thanks.

absolutely no need for plugins - just give the actor a state with a high target rate

only need taunt plugin for specific types of attacks. like taunt all physical hit type but magical hit types have normal targeting, or vise versa.
if just having it taunt all attack types then only need target rate states.

I thought about this too, but I remembered that TGR is just a chance to be targeted more or less by attacks: It's not a replica for a true taunt.

OP can try making all battlers start with 0% TGR, and then use your suggestion, but I'm still not sure how that will fare in actual play.

Don't let the limitations of the editor that force the number to be read as a percentage misdirect you into something that is not true.

The target rate function uses weight mathematics to determine the true target of the skill.
that 100% default should be read as "weight: 1" or "weight:100" depending on how you want to calculate.

True, just increasing the target rate does not make it impossible to target the other actors, but the probability to do so goes down extremely fast, especially if the state gets multiple target rate increases.

Finally got my website fixed and the security sorted so it's been a productive day. Can I go to sleep now? I mean... I don't need to work right?
It's always a good idea to refresh yourself on what your plugins do. I'm working on a map with opening walls, and I was about to tear my hair out over how much image editing and hand-constructing of autotiles I'd have to do, when I looked again and saw @Shaz 's Tile Changer could copy areas from another map.
"sorry it took me so long to respond" - can we please agree not to say that anymore unless it actually took a long time?! (Like 36hrs at least) I mean, I'm running out of funny responses here xD
Ugh... 4:53AM over here and I can't sleep so why not just game make.
I just love the MV feature that allows you to create your own animations!
