  1. Your Book of War supplement is excellent. As you say in the show, finally a seamless "holy grail" that could actually work during a game session!

    1. Thank you! Yes, finally... I'm really grateful to Daniel Collins for having come up with such an elegant skirmish/mass combat set of rules that was easy to extend. If you try these out, let me know how it goes, please!

    2. I intend to when I get the chance, although it may be a while. The campaign I've just started consists of 1st and 2nd level characters, and, well… it's Barrowmaze, so I don't foresee a lot of opportunity for mass combat *yet*. (But with PCs like these, you really never know…)

    3. @John, you can indeed use Book of War to take 100 men into a dungeon - https://chgowiz-games.blogspot.com/2015/08/sir-reynalds-assault-of-monastery.html

    4. Ah, my apologies, it was actually Part 2 that talked a bit about how I used Book of War in a dungeon... https://chgowiz-games.blogspot.com/2016/01/taking-100-men-in-dungeon-act-2.html
