Carl didn't suggest removing the attacker selection code. Swarms of
beggars will still be dangerous to monsters. BUT, when a monster attacks
back, it will slaughter large numbers before something stops it.
One might put a limit on this... say that the attack value is used as a
measure of how many attacks a monster can make.
Thus your Big, Nasty Dragon has a value of 500. I'd use that as a
counter, and decrement it for each successful attack (not changing the
actual attack value), so that at most a dragon could munch 500 peasants
before it would lose its turn... but that munching a party of 6 nobles
would just about wear it out.
