Ken’s not one to back down from a fight, no matter how one-sided … on either side. Invincible monks? Sure! Harmless farmers? Sure!
Slime creatures from outer space? Sure!
And that’s why he’s awesome.
He’s a big fan of giving Equal Treatment.
Ina’s Legs make a brief but shining appearance.

Obviously Ken has never heard of the Angry Peasant Rule.
Actually, most people have never heard of the Angry Peasant Rule. It was a house rule developed by our DM (who was also my father) way back in AD&D version 1. It went like this: a group of 100 or more angry peasants (or other low level beings) working together as a mob hit as a single 16HD monster. This effect scales, so 200 angry peasants hit as 2 16HD monsters, 300 as 3 16HD monsters, etc.
I’m not sure exactly how that would translate into the modern Challenge Rating system, but the premise should be understandable: no matter how badass you are, an angry mob can still be dangerous. A sufficiently large mob WILL swarm you under eventually. The Angry Peasant Rule implements that by giving the mob improved chances to hit and to critical.
