Fantasy Olympics: Event Four

The daily Olympic strips continue.

I haven’t gone swimming in armour, but I’ve gone swimming in full clothing and it is not easy.  Just swimming holding a few of those weighted bands around your arms can be difficult after a while. Full plate armour should make swimming almost impossible. Amusingly, swimming in armour has gotten easier and easier over the editions. In the playtest for 5e, heavy armour currently only imposes a penalty to stealth checks. So you can swim normally in a suit of full plate. Which sounds a little like swimming with a few dumbbells tucked down your shorts.
