That's probably the best way, it keeps things moving along rather than thinking about 5 feats per turn.

This might be a very specific case but what do I do when I field a unit of heroes? Are all skills to be reduced to a d2 or worse?

just give them all a special Sentai Squad skill that lets them all use D8s or 10s, but they have to work together to preform a feat, or something

I thought about something similar in fact, maybe giving the leader and the 6th member d10 skill while the rest remains at d8.

When have you ever seen somebody put that many heroes in the same scene if the whole point wasn't that 90% of them would be defeated?

Skill dice bottom out at d4, so they'd just be mysteriously incompetent until enough of them were defeated that the survivors' skill dice would start ramping back up again.

Quite a lot of times. It's my daily bread, in fact.

Why not treat the whole unit as a hero? Each member alone is Incompetent, but each member that contributes to a group action increase the skill die size by one (to a maximum of d10). That way they can only operate at full effectiveness if at least 80% of the team is there.

And for added hilarity, imagine what it'd be like if the group rolls a crit fail.

So if unit has deflection, like from heavy armor, and is hit with a 1d10 explosion. Is that unit disrupted? It wouldn't take any damage.

In games I played, a unit with Deflection had still been considered Disrupted even after deflecting 1d10 explosion.

Look for the Secondary Effects on Shielded Targets callout in http://brikwars.com/rules/2010/3.htm#3 . Knockback is based on number of d10s, so it hits first, before Deflection decreases the damage.

Which makes sense. A unit's armor would block the shrapnel (which is what does all the damage) but the shockwave still hits him full-force.

So I want to have this guy be able to run into groups and, "explode" lightning. While not killing himself with the attack. If I use SN dice, would 1d10 and 1d6 make that work? Or would a shockwave centered on him kill, or disrupt him?

1d10 would be enough. With supernatural effects, an explosion centered on yourself only affects you if you want it to.
