After another enjoyable session of BBF last night, played using Roll20, I've got a question about managing combat.
There are 3 PC's in the party, plus one NPC who is a guide (I'm sure you know which adventure this is). They were attacked by party of 9 harpies. I know my players enjoy the multi-action mechanism, particularly if the initiative is in their favour, but I find I lose track of the multi-action penalties - how many previous actions a player or monster has taken. Any of the 3 players can take multiple actions, as can the NPC I control and any of the 9 harpies... as each round progresses I have to track which harpies have attacked or defended before, and then what if they decide to take multiple actions?
If I decide to track this on paper, in any round I'm recording multiple actions for 3 PC's, 1 NPC and 9 monsters...
Any tips or advice on this? Am I over complicating it?
