Having a party marching order and knowing where everyone was by using something to show were they were and where the enemy was at. It can get very complicated quickly.

Role-Players Amount Right

As role-playing fits more and more computer systems I think bigger groups can be formed if everyone has a tablet. The Dungeon Master can track everyone in the party easily.

Yes, I think you are correct in this. I think it'll also help to make the game more visual as tools are created to display maps, combat, positioning, etc. But there will still be a max and I'm not sure where that max is. Ten maybe?

Page 4 Role-Players Amount Right

My game has been running pretty consistently at nine players. I've been able to handle it with some tools not usually available at a table, and people seem to think the game does well. But there has been some strain, both on myself and the group.

I think it would be possible to go well above ten players, but they'd need to work quite well together without much intercession, and I would expect increasing problems as the number goes up.

Role-Players Amount Right

Anytime you get more than two people the chance of players not getting along starts to go up. Character interaction can be interesting at times. I have not yet found a good number that I can handle or would want to handle.

Agreed Daishain… everyone has an idea of what they want to do and what their character is or isn't and sometimes friction erupts over the smallest of things. I guess I know that! I would think the more players the greater the chance of this happening.

Comments: I like small groups of 3-6 players. Small groups make things more fun and interchangeable because you get to know the players as a person and their player styles. The game moves lots faster too. Larger groups take long to do simple tasks because there is always someone who is not ready to move forward. rolleyes.
