Holsters for Thrown Weapons
« on: (14:27:26/06-23-17) »
Can the holsters hold more than one thrown weapon?

It seams a bit excessive to have to spend 275 nuyen per 25 nuyen shuriken / throwing knife for a concealed qucik draw holster, or even 175 nuyen for "just" a quickdraw holster.

I believe this is more of a rules question, unless you believe it not exactly mentioning such would be a grave oversight from the authors.
Not sure this is stated anywhere. I would assume you'd be able to stack multiple in a holster, but it is a quickdraw holster. How many would you need to draw that quickly? You can ready a handful.
Still waiting on a Vector-Thrust Liminal Body.

You can ready up to half Agility(round up) with one action. So we're looking at an absolute maximum of readying 7 throwing weapons at once (and that's assuming an exceptional attribute with genetic optimization and +4 augmentation on an Elf. That caps out at a total of 13 I think.

The much more reasonable range is 3-5 tops. I would probably be ok with saying a holster could hold up to 10 or so of a particular throwing weapon (depending on the weapon).

Definitely more of a rules question than a dire need for errata. Might be useful to include it in a redraft though.

"Dire need for an errata?"  No, not really.

But with the inclusion of the Rapid Draw Adept Power (pg 173, Street Grimoire) it does open up the area of a "properly holstered" weapon.

While it appears to be generally hand waved that any weapon can be properly holstered for free...  A Thrown Weapon Adept would be interested in getting the concealed and / or quick draw options.  And it gets worse when you expand from the shuriken / throwing knife arena into grenades, javelins, throwing syringes, mono-bolas, etc....
