Swim Penalty?

The armor check penalty description in the equipment chapter states that such penalties are doubled when swimming. That's from 3.5.

The old rule, swim checks suffer a -1 penalty for every 5 pounds of armor and equipment worn, was from 3.0 and is listed in all the class features in Conan - AE.

They shouldn't both apply right? If so, how did Mongoose miss this?

You're new here, aren't you? :wink:

Heh, it's a known typo. Use the 3.5 rule (which is the rule listed under the Swim skill description in Conan, so it trumps the other refrence).

Welcome aboard.
 
I've been a lurker for a bit. Thanks for the welcome though.

I'm just annoyed the error made it into the AE edition.
