You're a necromancer who has to choose between raising a skeleton squad or one giant skeletons.

Which do you choose and why?
>>
>>284490869
Skelepin squad
More spook = more effective damenge
>>
Why would I want one skeleton when I could have five? This isn't really a contest.
>>
I've seen this once before.

Skele squad loses DPS with each hit, giant skele doesn't

Regardless of which squad goes first, skele squad loses
>>
Giant Skeleton. I'd build a fort in the hollow of his skull, peeping out through his vacant sockets.
>>
I would normally go with the skellesquad, but a giant skeleton? How giant are we talkin' here?
>>
>>284491043
>>284491154
Whoa guys, but that giant skeleton could fuck up small buildings in one swing.
I will go with the giant skeleton, and maybe eventually I can raise multiple giant skeletons.
>>
Giant skeleton does 25 dmg til it dies, skele squad does less dmg over time

Giant fur sure
>>
I choose video games.

Casual.
>>
>>284491154
AoE would rek them all
>>
>>284491043
One giant skelly is way spookier than loads of small ones
>>
With those stats? Gimme the biggie.
>>
>>284491321

Enjoy my pooping on your head. Lmao digest everything I eat!
>>
I would take one regular size skeleton with the strength and power of the giant one. That would be better. A giant one is just easier to hit.

Then I would take that one regular size with the power of the giant and make four more of it.
>>
I'll take a group of ten baby skeletons.
>>
The answer is obvious
>>
Can I use milk to buff the Skeleton Squad?
>>
>>284491452
But you'd need baby corpses to make baby skeletons...
>>
if small skeles attack at the same time (one turn) they do the same amount of damage than big spooky
>>
depends on the game

>5 skeletons
>vulnerable to AoE

>1 skeleton
>vulnerable to CC
>>
Well, I take it the skeleton squad is better for terrorizing the living
>>
That depends on a few factors.
Is the armor a flat damage mitigator? If it is then the large skelly no question.
If the skeletons can act as a shieldwall, soaking up arrows and spells then I'd go for them instead.
>>
Well that depends.

Are each of the 5 skeletons skilled in different fighting styles and weapon use? How big is a giant skeleton? Who am I fighting? Does the giant skeleton come with a giant weapon or do I have to help him forge it?

all skeletons are equally beautiful and spooky

>weak to aoe
Gotta get all the skeletons man.
>>
It depends on if you're fighting one strong enemy or a bunch of enemies. Giant Skeleton is way stronger against a boss.

Small skellies can be beaten one by one, diminishing their overall damage.
Meanwhile giant skelly has the same HP of the small skellies combined but does the same damage until he dies.
Plus giant skellies are spookier than smaller ones.
>>
can I summon the five and have them join together like voltron?

Giant Skeleton

>mfw I ride on my giant skeleton while it fucks up everything
>>
>>284491538
Guess I'll take the big skelly then attack a maternity ward, then.

>Kill expectant mothers
>Army of skeletons within skeletons
>>
I choose both because I'm a fucking necromancer.
>>
Giant's usually better, unless I'm fighting multiple enemies at the same time where 25 damage to one target at a time would be wasteful
>>
The giant would deliver consistent DPS where as the skelesquad would be picked off one by one, although it depends if I'm using them as a shield to counter some sort of aoe?
>>
Bear skeleton

only answer

You guys have to consider some different factors, such as AoE attacks ruining the squad, or a big single attack doing 150 damage making the giant skeleton die in a single hit.
Also if you have an attack aura or buffs, it'll be more effective on more minions.
>>
>>284491818
What if the buff is an attack speed or a % damage buff?
>>
>>284491587
This anon gets it.

Also in an arpg or pnp situation the squad gets swarm bonuses.

In most normal situations/games the giant skeleton is better investment

But lmao5skele.

So skele squad.
>>
>>284490869
A giant Skeleton, Ruin some filthy peasant town and BOOM free regular skeles, fuck finding a dead giant about to get a new Giant one.

Skele squad.

Ill just get a golem for my giant minion needs.
>>
squad
b/c i could have them hide in a closet
together

yes
>>
>>284490869
A skeleton squad would definitely look cooler, so I'd go with that.
>>
I'd love hanging out with my undead spook bros. But I probably would save a lot of gas money by riding my giant skeleton around and I imagine he'd be a pretty great bro too.
>>
>>284490869
depends. are the baby skeletons faster? if so, i would like to bum rush my enemies.
>>
>>284491689
But what if you're fighting something with powerful single-target abilities?
>>
>>284491369
and CC would rekt the giant one
>>
>>284490869
Each turn, the big skeleton kills 1 small skeleton, reducing the skeleton squad's attack power.

Eventually the big skeleton will take 75 points of damage before he wipes out the skeleton squad.
>>
Without knowing anything else, skeleton squad is definitely the safest bet.

If the enemy has stuns you're fucked with one giant skelly.
>>
>>284491203
But why would skeletons be fighting each other?
>>
Disregarding mods, which games allow you to actually play as a skelly?
>>
>>284492347
Every game that lets you play with a human costume

Giant skeleton
He can tank hits without losing any attack power, and regain HP after the battle.
>>

Stop skeletons from fighting.
>>
>>284492241
1st you're stupid. It's not about skele on skele combat. 2nd if it WAS, the squad necro casts stun and giant is fucked or giant's necro casts AoE dmg and squad necro is fucked. There's too many variables.

Lmao5skele all day.

Skele squad, because I have a better idea of when I need to resummon them, and they can stymie a larger group of enemies that want to eat my face than the Big Spooks could.

>>284492149
Depending on what your rules are that would be the same situation. The powerful single target ability could probably wipe out 1 skele per spell, or you use it multiple times in the fight against big skele. If you have a spell powerful enough to oneshot big skele, there's no way you'd be afraid of little ones anyway.
>>
>>284490869

The group of little skeletons benefit greater from attack speed bonuses

All these fools choosing giant skeleton are not realizing that it's proportions are the same as the small skellies, making it very structurally weak.
Kek I would't be surprised if his legs break and he collapses on its own.
>>
Depends on the situation.
For bosses, either will work, really
For little dudes, little dudes (unless the big skeleton's attack has an AoE type thing, in whiche case either will do)
>>
Fuck. Now i want to play a game where I can be a skeleton necromancer and have armies of skeletons.

Diablo 2 was great, but i want something different..
>>
>>284490869
WHOA WHOA WHOA YOU SILLY CUNTS THE ANSWER IS OBVIOUS

1 BIG SKELETON= REALLY BIG BONES

HE CAN ONLY BE A BIG SKELETON, YOU DIG?

BUT 5 NORMAL SKELETONS? WELL SHIT NIGGA YOU CAN TAKE THEIR BONES APART, FORM THEM TOGETHER TO TRANSFORM THEM IN A BIG SKELETON.

LIKE MUTHAFUCKING TRANSFORMERS


BUT WITH SKELETONS!!!

Bigger/stronger creatures usually have higher saving throws to protect against cc spam. Although it wasn't mentioned in the OP
