Dropping off and picking up

Postby Fyr1 » Sun Jan 21, 2018 3:54 pm

I have a few questions about picking up and dropping weapons and items.

6. Is there a limit to the amount of times an item can be dropped/picked up in one turn?

7. Can a creature drop an item, pick up another item, take an action with that item, and then pick up the item they started with, all in one turn?

8. Can an item be picked up as a response action? What if you drop something else to do it?

9. Can you pick up items while in combat?

That will be all.

A lot of these are just judgment calls on the part of the players, decided by WISG if necessary. There's no hard and fast limit on picking stuff up and putting stuff down.

So,

6. not really 7. probably 8. yes

9. This is a little more situational. If you draw a weapon from a holster or a sheath, then it's probably a free action. If you're trying to re-holster or re-sheath a weapon, probably a free counterattack from your enemies. If you have to bend over to pick something up from the ground, then I'd say it's a free counterattack also. If you're already on the ground, and are grabbing something as you get up to spring to the attack, then it's probably free.

What about juggling guns, a la Revolver Ocelot in MGS3?

This sounds more like a Heroic Feat.

Juggling guns is an Action (Use:6) that uses both hands. So you wouldn't be able to use those hands for anything else (like shooting) in the same turn.
