So, I had a game last Monday. I know that the game is not well suited to minis. I had an old adventure that was created for D&D 3rd, so I had all the stuff for it in paper minis and Maps. I discovered that you can use it as an aide for large combats. Combats where the PCs are up against around double, maybe more, combatants. It also helped some imagination in it. A more timid Player was able to vividly describe an action of acrobatically leaping over a person to slice down on another enemy. He was a halfling monk with an Acrobatics Move on his sheet. So I had him roll that, then roll the Hack&Slash, but it allowed for a great description. I used dice on a map to roughly describe where the bad guys were in relation to them. No worrying about ranges or sizes or movement actions. Just, “Hey, you are about here and they are about here. This will be moved around a lot and not in any sort of order, What do you do?”
The visual helped not only the combat but it helped me keep track of a lot of opponents. Just wanted to Share.
