Thread: Token Counter

    Token Counter

    Hi FG Experts,

    In my campaign my characters have to defend a city by leading different (small) armies. I invented some kind of mini-ruleset for this kind of encounters.

    So now to my problem: I would like to have a counter on the army token where one can see the number/size of the army. I would be totally fine if I could add single digits (0-9). Has anyone any idea how i can deal with this? or do I have to work around it "manually" and count.

    maybe an example
    Army1 consists of 5 units
    Army 2 of 8 units

    Army 1 attacks Army 2 and kills 3 Units. Now both counters should show 5

    Thank you for help.

    BR

    Set them up as NPC's and use HP. it wouldn't have a number token, but you can add health bars which would be a different visual representation.

    IMO if I was doing this I would use different tokens for each army and then in the combat tracker I would list the army size in either the name or the effects. Adding in picture.

    No problem, it's always easy to overlook the simplest solutions

    The POV that is treating the PCs/NPCs as generic stats, that we have to add our imagination to, to understand their scale representation.
    A single NPC token can be a scale of one or it can be a scale of many. This can be seen in the monsters, as some of them are actually whole swarms of something, as one token.
