PostSubject: Optional Rule   Thu Mar 24, 2011 9:49 am

Eric, I want to discuss something with you. There is a Horde mechanic in the Warhammer 40k RPG that I play. As the name suggests, it's an abstract way of dealing with combat when your PCs are facing massive numbers of opponents. Granted that RPG is d100 based instead of d20, but I'm working on adapting it to Pathfinder. Trust me, it makes the DMs job in those situations 100 times more streamlined and combat goes much smoother and faster. For example, last time I ran a session of that game my players faced off against around 300 opponents. The players are genetically enhanced super soldiers, and their enemy was just massed fodder, but still a combat like that in Pathfinder would take all night due to sheer numbers. The fight took about 15 minutes. If I can adapt the rules to the d20 system, I'll definitely be using this in any future campaigns that I run. I'll fill you in on the details when I see you, but I think you'll be interested.

Mart,
That sounds interesting and it sounds like a decent mechanic for handling hordes. Once you have it developed you should come over one time and we'll play test it. That way we don't take away from game time.

No problem, you have some time. I won't need the mechanic for about 1 more month Twisted Evil
