Sometimes it is good to have a no-nonsense combat encounter. A chance for the players to roll dice and character’s to crush skulls without worrying about the consequences.
Tonight’s RPG brainstorming topic is to think of a standalone combat encounter but with a twist. There must be a single boss monster and a host of mooks but importantly, the boss cannot simply be a big version of the mooks. So if you have Orc mooks you cannot have an Orc boss monster. A part from this, there are no limitations -any genre or setting will do.
