So, last night we had a situation where there was a firefight happening in a packed cargo bay. There was so much cover that folks were having a hard time killing one another, and one side had taken position up on a catwalk. The other side advanced and got into close combat.
The sides looked like this:
A: 2 Characters, 8 Underworld Thugs, 2 Iron-suited personal guard.
B: 1 Character, 5 Anvil Scouts, 10 Underworld Thugs
How would one resolve a close combat like this?
Specifically, how does one determine who attacks who and would it really require 16 opposed rolls?
I couldn’t find any rules specifing which side determines the target of which attacks.
So how would you Burning Empires experts handle this close combat?
