I was playing the fortress at Dieppe scenario with a friend the other day. There was a situation in which one of his men-at-arms units wanted to initiate a melee and there were two opposing archers adjacent to him. Having no other friendly units to engage my archers he was forced to attack both of them. I forget the exact modifiers but it wasn't really unfavorable to him (if at all). The result ended up being a D + R for the defenders. I was unsure if both defenders suffered the results. That seemed overly punishing. It just seems like there's barely any penalty at all for one unit attacking several defenders and that seems unrealistic? Or maybe I'm just used to games where one against many is far less effective. To get right to the point, do all units involved in a melee suffer the results?
