Subject: Balancing a scenario for more than 6 survivors? rss

All of the scenarios in the book says 6+ survivors, but how do I best balance the game if our group has four players that all want to control 2 survivors each?

Is there an "official" way of doing this? Or is two extra characters not that big of a deal balance wise?

I have all the content from the "Knight" pledge cool

I believe the rule book states that you just add another spawn point somewhere. One per extra 2 characters

Hmm. I must have definetely overlooked that.
That seems a bit harsch though? most scenarios already start with 4 spawnpoints, adding one more means 5 which then means you lose the entire game if just 1 Necromancer gets through.

I just opened the box to check for this, and it is even in the index and everything blush

Another spawn point right from the start still feel a bit intimidating, but here goes. Thanks guys

If that should happen too early in the game, just ignore the 'auto-lose'. From that point on, you'll have six permanent spawn points (plus any new necromancer spawn points), which means the game just gets tougher. It is OK to adjust any rule that interferes with having fun. Having fun is the only rule that shouldn't be adjusted.

No it will still require 2 Necromancers. The limit for losing is increased by one for each additional spawn token added at the start of the game.

Completely agree. Thats the beauty of this game, is the sandbox element.
Perhaps I will ad some another Abomination to the mix instead, just to spice things up.
