We had our first session yesterday, and I decided to sport some undeads and witness the power of Turn Undead. Many lulz were had.
However… Skeletons are labeled as “horde”, so I decided to drag in around 20 of them. After nearly killing two of my three players off, they got a brief respite when they killed a sentient skeleton that commanded them.
But guess what, I hate bookkeeping. Skeletons have 7 HP and 1 armor, and it is a rare event that even the darn fighter kills them in one blow. As such, I had to track the HP of around 7 skellies at a time.
How do my fellow GMs deal with this? I felt that it quickly got a little arbitrary, since I quickly forgot which skeleton the HP count belonged to.
