View Full Version : 3.5 "Epic" Battle

2010-05-20, 12:00 PM
I'm running a 4 hour game with 5 level 11 PCs. I am staging a storyline-ending epic battle and wonder how many real combats I should run, and how much I should run as "background" colour.

You're only gonna have time for two or three combats... I'd just roll them into one big combat if it's an epic battle.

The answer really depends on your players, on their style of play and optimization levels. An appropriate encounter at level 11 should still only take a few rounds, normally, after all.
