Okay, I want a post that can be FAQ'd and puts these questions in one place. I encourage everyone to tag this FAQ.
So with respect to swarms...
(1) What type of damage is a swarm attack?
Is it untyped? Natural(bite/sting/other)? Area of Effect? Other?
(2) Would two swarms (fine/diminutive) be able to damage each other?
If the damage they do is considered a form of natural/weapon attack, that would seem to mean that their normal immunity would kick in and they would be unable to harm each other.
(3) If two swarms wish to attack the same medium (or smaller) sized target, can they? Essentially entering the same space (square)?
(4) Assuming the answer to #3 is yes, do the two swarms continue to function as two separate creatures each with their own attack, resolved normally?
Or do they become one larger swarm? If the latter, how does their stat block change?
