What Happens If You Kill Their Leader?

Bosses have dudes working under them, right? These could be henchmen, underlings, cultists, servants, bodyguards, minions, followers, apostles, disciples - you get the idea. Hmm, maybe this should be a random table of its own?

Ok, so this situation came up 2 or 3 times during my Game Hole Con sessions last Saturday...

The PCs focus their initial attacks on the leader. He dies. What happens to all his followers? Well, now there's a random table to determine that shit.

The Leader is Killed... Now What?

1. All his followers immediately kill themselves.
2. All his followers surrender.
3. All his followers attempt to run away.
4. All his followers continue the attack.
5. All his followers continue attacking with renewed ferocity (they get advantage next round).
6. His followers receive sudden reinforcements (multiply current forces by 1.5).


There you go, enjoy! If you end up using this in one of your games, definitely tell us about it.
