Minions – Ep153


We’ve noticed that in a lot of current RPGs there have been rules in place that downgrade one group of enemies so that they aren’t much of a threat individually, but in a large group can be quite tough. Those are the minions. Are they the key to “cinematic” combat or just a gimmick?

    Something that I feel was failed to mention is that, A minion can become a hero. IE Sam Rockwell in Galaxy Quest. He was a “red shirt” that was known at security officer 3 to security chief Guy Fleegman. But anyway, I think that it is a misnomer to refer to a good guy as having minions. A bad guy would have minions, a good guy would have a side kick or a hero helper.
