Thanks to all those responded via email and in our comments section to my call for help in finding a mass combat system. I guess I never realized how many mass combat systems were out there. The sheer number available is slightly jaw dropping.
Wanting to compile a comprehensive list of the systems that seemed most promising, I took the suggestions from those kind enough to offer them and added some of the other systems I had heard of by word of mouth and online. I couldn't seem to get the preliminary list down below 20 so I just gave up and left it at that. As I look through each system I'm sure I'll eliminate some fairly quickly.
Here is the list...
- Conan d20
- Tunnels & Trolls
- D&D Rules Cyclopedia
- Legend of the Five Rings
- GURPS Mass Combat
- Savage Worlds
- Decipher's Lord of the Rings RPG
- Rolemaster’s War Law
- The Flower of Battle for the Riddle of Steel
- A Song of Ice and Fire RPG
- Burning Empire (By Burning Wheel)
- Army of Darkness RPG
- Black Company Campaign Setting
- Cry Havoc
- Way of the Daimyo
- Empire (Alderac)
- Fields of Blood (Eden Studio)
- Birthright Campaign Setting
Some of these I already have but haven't looked at, while others will require me to head over to DriveThruRPG for the PDF to save money. This seems to be a more epic undertaking than I had anticipated, but it seems like it might be a lot of fun!
If anyone has any experience with one or more of these and doesn't think they are worth my time and money please let me know via email or in the comments section.
