| What exactly is the strength of ten men? The quick and udmb answer would be the Str of one average man x 10, which would be 100, but that's a ridiculous score.
So let's imagine then that we have one average man attempting a Str check and he has nine average men assisting. A Str score of 10 grants no bonus, but nine men who succeed on a DC10 assist roll each add +2, totalling +18 bonus to assist. A +18 assist bonus is the same as the Str bonus of a character with Str 46.
But then if we assume an average of rolls succeed a flat dc10 Str check without a bonus, then it may well be only half the nine men who sucessfully assist. The assist bonus only becomes +8 (+9 rounded down). And a Str bonus of +8 is a Str Score of 26.
This is pretty confusing as is, how would you folks resolve this? |

sevenzerosixmegarandomTry this:

Take the amount of weight an average man can lift, multiply that by ten, and look on the table and see what strength can lift that weight. There is your strength of ten men.

An average human (str 10) can lift 100 lbs. over his head. A man with the strength of ten men can lift 1000 lbs. According to the table this is between 26 (920 lbs.) and 27 (1040 lbs.) strength.

highbulpPlus, I like how that number matches up with the score if you had 9 average guys assisting. Good job megarandom.
