(TFT) Re: TFT Digest V4 #157
So how about taking Slippery Floor and using it in a swimming situation?
This seems like a totally brilliant idea to me!
Breast-stroke's advantage over crawl for underwater is that
the arms are coming forward all scrunched up and in the turbulence of
the body anyway, so not as much drag on the forward stroke. Slippery
Floor fixes that as well as wiping out the the whole body-drag thing
at the same time. I'd also say carried equipment would make no
difference in that situation.
I don't have a good idea *how* fast you could go with that
set-up. I'm thinking of riding on a really good skateboard,
hand-paddling along ... pretty close to running speed, I guess.

I think you have missed a trick, Jay. As I understand it, picking
up a dropped weapon, or scooping one on the go, lets you pick it up,
but it is not ready until the start of the next turn.
not to be too conciliatory, but I think you are both right. From AM p.3
Option I.g. Pick up dropped weapon ... pick it up *and ready it*
Option III. Move more than half your MA ... Take no other action
except ... scoop up a weapon.
So if I understood what Jay said, he thinks option 1g allows
a character to move 1 hex, grab up a dropped weapon, ready, and (if
the character knows thrown weapons) throw it, all on the same turn. I
agree. (If I were trying to start an argument again, I might bring up
Two Weapons, but it's probably safer to restrict that to the "house
But my original suggestion, which involved spending 3 MA to
scoop up a weapon, does *not* permit the character to then throw it
on the same turn, since no other actions are available (and under
Movement it clarifies that the weapon isn't ready until the next
Difference is how far the character moved; 0 or 1 hex to
allow Option 1g, more than half MA to get stuck into Option III.
