multiple attacks

Post by Eddie » Wed Oct 19, 2016 7:52 pm

in original Dungeoneer! enemies with multiple attacks could target multiple heroes and only had their skill lowered if they had more heroes to fight than attacks.

example: Troll has 2 attacks, against 2 heroes it attacks both equally with no penalty, with 3 heroes it has -1 Skill and only targets 2 of the 3 heroes with attacks (although it still rolls against the 3rd as a defensive measure)

this no longer seems to be the case in the rulebook...i'm just wondering
1 is this deliberate?
2 do people play with the original rule anyway?

it doesn't feel right that a monster capable of fighting numerous enemies should be penalised if that many enemies attack it at the same time.

I don't have the books in front of me but the bit about outnumbering and the bit about multiple attacks aren't together on the page and it's not made clear how they work together. From memory there's nothing saying you don't count multiple attacks against outnumbering and my opinion is you need to.
