Mass Battle System

All,

I'm confused about a few things in the conan mass battle system, and could use some help clarifying.

1) Say I had a really awesome mounted guy, and wanted to charge a formation of spearmen/pikemen/whatever type with reach weapons. How many of them would get AoO on my guy? Would it be every single guy within 10'? That'd be a lot of guys, my 'hero' would get ripped to shreds!

2) I'm confused about area damage spells. How do you determine how many counters are hit? And how big is a counter? I know that it's not part of the system, but how would a regular 3.0 fireball work?

Any help would be great!

Yes, but don't worry! Many of those attacks will be taken against your horse, not you! It's only on the following round that you'll be butchered as you try to pull yourself from under your collapsed screaming mount! HTH!
