Mass Combat Rules for D&D Released for Free!

Mike Mearls has released the second Unearthed Arcana article on the official D&D website! It’s the second in the monthly series and this month looks at the Mass Combat Rules for D&D. A nine page PDF download is provided with info providing rules for a battlesystem to handle “When Armies Clash”.

This content was originally planned to be part of the Dungeon Master’s Guide, but it didn’t make the cut since due to the need for more playtesting (according to Mearls in this previous story about mass combat we posted). Whether it was additional playtesting, trimming page count or deciding (correctly) to focus on delivering the rest of the DMG… we get now get Mass Combat rules for free and the rules look pretty good.
