Since this game is a little different from the original, I am not sure regarding this issue:
If one of your healthy characters is in the same zone as an enemy that is wounded and with an item, do you have to use 1AP to move, but NOT MOVE AT ALL and take the object from the wounded character?
According to the rules, picking up and dropping objects occurs DURING movement, so the character must have been activated to move. In this case it will not move, but it has to be activated to pickup the object.
Problem is action of picking up or dropping objects is not supposed to use AP.
"A character can pick up an object from a zone during a movement action. This does not require the player to spend any AP as it is considered part of the character’s movement. "
Picking up items is part of a movement action, meaning that you still need to spend 1 AP to activate the movement, even if you then choose not to actually move. They really should have said "This does not require the player to spend any additional AP.
