Good idea. What if the charging party is a knight on horseback? You could include Mounted Combat this way.

Cheers,

Some 2:2 or 2:3 encounters would also be helpful.

Good suggestions, thanks. I am keeping track of suggested examples.

Multiple combatants seem like a good idea, but I was thinking more like 1:2 or 1:3 - not sure how 2:2 in one example would be any different than 1:1 in two examples?

Just popped in to let everyone know I'm still out here chipping away when I can. :)

Very nice; I have bookmarked the site :-)

Any chance this sort of thing could be pitched to Steve Jackson as part of the e23 lines? I am thinking a simple "combat tutorial" like this in a printble PDF form would be pretty cool.

(sorry if this has already been asked)

I'm in the very early stages of working on a 2:2 combat which is one fighter (meat-shield) and one mage (backpack) versus two zombies. I'd be very appreciative if you'd host the example when it is ready to be checked for RAW accuracy. (Well, not total RAW because it also uses spells from Magic.)

Glad you find it useful KDLadage!

I've toyed with the idea of submitting to e23, but that wouldn't be for a while - I imagine I would need many more examples, across a wider variety of combats.

I will be converting the individual examples to PDF at some point soon though - quite a few folks have mentioned wanting copies of the examples for their off-line players.

Sounds good The Bearded One, I'd be happy to host it with the others - the closer you can keep the format to what I'm already using, the better. :)

Just a thought. You could do the pdf like a test, lets say green will do a step and attack red will do all out defensive with retreat rolls 15,12,9,7 so a reader should try to figure the result of the round and then check the result with the normal explanation.

Pecete, why complicate straight forward examples like that?

If you do make them PDFs I hope they also stay, and you keep adding to, simple .html pages. It's no hassle to open PDFs, but I'd rather not bother.

An example using grappling rules would probably be a good idea.
