House Rules: Attacking Together

February 1, 2010

I always thought it was strange that D&D doesn’t really have rules for players to attack together. If all four of you stick an enemy from four different directions at once, surely it’s going to hurt more than if you stick it four times individually! So we have a house rule.

If players want to launch a simultaneous attack, those with higher initiative must ready an action until it’s the slowest player’s turn. Each player rolls an attack. If every attack hits, each character does an extra point of damage per character level. If someone misses, the characters do individual damage only.

After the attack, initiative returns to normal.
