    What now?
    Move on to the Next world and do it again? Hopefully BEFORE they wreck it this time.

    Well, you're one Munch-level up this this time, so hit die, to hit rolls, saves, and so forth may have gone up. You may even have a new special ability, if you get one at the very next Munch-level.

    So your chances of saving the alternate quantum versions of us on that world is at least a few percent greater in some respects.

    Can I be that guy who points out that scaled up ants would promptly collapse and suffocate under their own weight? Even if you did scale up their speed and strength accordingly? Also they'd explode from their own internal thermodynamics?

    You must be one of the few people here who hasn't yet gotten his Ph.D. in subatomic physics. Do your dissertation on Pym particles and everything will fall into place.

    I mean it's a draw either way because they're going to destroy life on Earth by sheer mass

    Eh, there'd be a sudden and rather loud mass-explosion of organic material, but that'd be about it.

    Might be a lot of structural damage/death though.

    *cough*sorry, I was being dumb with numbers when I said it was two thirds the mass of the moon earlier. It's nowhere NEAR that, but it's still an enormous amount of mass that is gonna drown out cities or like... are anthills getting expanded to accomodate this? 'Cause it'd be hilarious if the ground just started puking tons upon tons of ant viscera one day

    I'm imagining that physics would kick in and there would just be tons and tons of Ant-viscera Volcanoes exploding out of the ground.

    Though this is what I want to happen, so take it with a grain of madness.

    There are about 10 quadrillion ants on the planet compare to 7.7 billion humans on the planet. Ants out number us by like such a ridiculous amount it isn't funny.

    I mean, sure we’d drown under the sheer volume, but they’d all be lying there dying as their spindly legs fail to support the mass of their bodies.

    You guys are overthinking this: clearly the ants' legs are made of AdmANTium and won't have any problem at all supporting their weight.

    We'd better hope they haven't been picking up MMA broadcasts with their antennas. They'll be kung-fu kicking down bank vault doors. Absolutely nowhere to hide....
