So, at the beginning of summer, some friends and I were able to wrangle up some coworkers for a campaign.
We started with 5 or 6 players, but as word spread of the game, more and more people began to join. Last night I ran for 9 people. Now I’ve been running ICRPG for a few years and 5e for a few years more and have almost solely focused on speeding play and making beginner entry as easy as possible so I was thrilled at the growth and excitement!
However, as the summer is closing up and we’re all headed back to collage, it is about time to wrap up the campaign- only issue is that absolutely everyone want to be there for the grand finale. I could be running for 11 to potentially 15 (unlikely, but still realistic) people.
Any advice for running engaging, challenging, and interesting final battles for HUGE groups?
I want to put on a show, I’m pulling out all the stoppers and am down to try whatever you think works- rule changes, scenario ideas, combat to non combat ratio, battlefield size, speed enforcement, croud/volume control, 2nd GMs… whatever!
Thanks for any advice, this is consistently one of my favorite RPG communities, you guys are the best, thanks again!
