So, I'm kind of trumped right now, and I need to know what the rules are in terms of the type of action required for one player to pass an item to another player during combat.
You see, my friend has come up with a theoretical way to make a gnome rail gun in the 6 second space of one turn by that each turn is chronological but also simultaneous. So by lining up a group of people (NPCs and Players) with decreasing initiative roles he can pass a gnome from one player to the next in the space of the 6 seconds thus accelerating the gnome to a ridiculous speed due to the theoretical space the gnome has crossed in one turn.
Now, I'm all for interesting ideas, but this is insane, I know the combat rules can find a way to allow it, but this is some sort of temporal anomaly within the combat rules, no?
So yeah, back to the point, passing ANY object, and then receiving said object , large or small, takes what kind of action from either player?
