Are there rules for dealing with Unruly Mobs of NPC's? Not Armies or even people with Weapons. But a large crowd in a panic or even a large posse.
Not exactly sure of the intent here. I presume the request is for something other than simply running them as a group of Extras (though that would seem to be the way to handle a large posse). I would note that Group Rolls allow for handling such large groups outside of combat as easily as handling a single character.
In combat, a tight group of a panicked crowd or horde of zombies could be handled as a "swarm" of characters instead of individuals.
Or if the group of characters is not dangerous, but more of an obstacle, passing them could be handled as a Dramatic Task.
It really depends on the specific use and intent as to which rules would work best, but there are different ones to potentially use. _________________ Clint Black
