Given that Thrown Weapons talent lets you whip out a mace or spear and throw
a single action, this talent seems more than reasonable.  But given that AM
you to pick up a weapon off the floor during movement with a dex roll,
of your action, I have wonder if Quickdraw should even be a talent, maybe
just a
change to the rules.  (Either that, or the "free quickdraw during movement"
should be looked at.)  One way or another, though, like it should be easier
draw a sword from a scabbard than from the floor.
OTOH, if you fail your "quickdraw from floor" roll you end up with nothing,
a weapon that's ready next round, so maybe that makes up for it.>>>

The rule states that "a weapon picked up this way is ready next turn".  The
rule regards MA loss if an item is picked up.  I know that Ty on his site
mentions a talent quickdraw sword in his Refined Character Creation system
but does not go into specifics.  Maybe he could give us his home rule for

Thanks for the comment, Stan
