30 Day D&D Challenge, Day Twenty-Three: Least Favorite Monster Overall

Day 23 - Least Favorite Monster Overall

With a passion that burns hotter than the Nine Hells, I hate swarms. They are a cool concept, but Gond dammit they suck to fight. Perhaps other editions handled them better but the way 3rd Era/Pathfinder handles them just makes them a drain on fun. I've never made it through a swarm fight well. They tend to be TPK's or things to retreat from. The problem is they're long and drawn out TPK's. As my friend pointed out, there's nothing more humiliating than dying like an extra in an Indiana Jones movie. Because of my experience fighting these things, I almost never use them.
