Traveling on Arda you will find several rivers and streams. Sometimes they become an obstacle on your way. This skill will help you swim across the deepest rivers or lakes, and might also prove helpful when exploring a new land or running from an enemy.
To master this skill, good health, an iron will and great agility are required.
Swimming allows you to enter rivers and lakes without a boat and survive. It is also the only way to enter underwater places.
Your swimming skill will be checked each time you enter the water, when you try to get back on the ground, when you move from a water room to another and every few seconds spent in the water.
Failure means that you gulped some water and choked. Swimming will also consume your movement points quickly. You will drown if you become exhausted while swimming, or if you fail too many checks.
Finally, when swimming underwater you must also take into consideration how long you can hold your breath. Underwater fights are particularly bad for your health, unless you can resurface quickly.

to fall from a cliff into a river.
