-King James I, Daemonologie
Everywhere one goes one finds the landscape of the New World strewn and dotted with brooks, fords, streams, lakes, and eddies. From the icy cold of Hudson's Bay to the blessed warmth of the Summer Isles and beyond Swimming grants the ability to move in and through water.
To use it, select the Adventure Menu button and then click on the Activate Swimming button.
Warning: Swimming across even a small river uses a significant amount of phlegm for a starting player, and can easily cause an unwary pilgrim to KO.
