Say you're a level 18 character who has the maximum essence spread: 1 Destiny, 16 Essence. You have the ill luck of falling into an underwater battle. You have no swim.

You'll be dead within 2 - 4 rounds.
- 1st Round is your holding breath round.
- 2nd Round you might take none (P) you might take everything (S).
- 3rd Round you'll be taking at least 1/2 (9) Essence every round.
- 4rth Round = Guaranteed death.

Rather lethal, I'm not complaining. This'll turn the Swimming skill into a must.

I'd modify this by allowing characters 1 wyrd when they fall into the water. Every P rune drawn represents an extra holding breath round.

Actually...I was wondering if replacing Swim with Sailing would be handy. It'd make designing longboat friendly Vikings far more tempting.

obviously, he doesn't have much of a destiny if he's drowning.

Heh,

Or perhaps his Destiny is for one of Aegir's daughters to stumbled upon his corpse?

Ugh....

I've have too much Vanagard on the brain. I'm forgetting about the damage tracks.

Drowning is still dangerous but not nearly as insta-kill as I'm thinkning.

Yeah we want it pretty intense because naval battles should come with some risk if you're not a good swimmer. :twisted:

Environments need to be played-up. Rangnarok is dark, so Norns should always be asking their players: "who is carrying the lit torches" and taking note. Darkness impeding line of sight needs to be used often as well as denizen cinematic actions of snuffing our torches. :evil:

Raises a question, on a standard sunless moonless day...how far can a dweller see (without other light sources) in hexes.
