Carrying capacity determines how much weight the player character (PC) may carry before becoming burdened or strained by excessive load.

CalculationEdit

To make calculations easier, basic carrying capacity (BC) is defined as the highest possible weight at which the character is not yet strained, i. e. only burdened.

All fractions are rounded down.

  • Unburdened status is from zero to 0.75 BC.
  • Strained status spans from 1 BC + 1 stone to 1.5 BC.
  • Strained! status spans from 1.5 BC + 1 stone to 1.75 BC.
  • Overburdened! status spans only from 1.75 BC to 6 BC. Should the character carry more than this, he will die of being crushed under tons of luggage. It is impossible to pick up this much weight; only specific situations can trigger this effect (typically losing a temporary carrying capacity boost).

The primary attribute for calculating carrying capacity is the character's Strength.

  • Strength at 1 gives 640 stones.
  • Add 40 for each point of Strength up to 10.
  • Starting with 10 Strength (1000 stones), each strength point up to 15 adds 100 stones of capacity.
  • At 15 Strength (1500 stones), each point up to 20 gives 150 additional stones.
  • At Strength 20 (2250 stones), each point up to 25 adds 225 stones.
  • At Strength 25 (3375), each point in strength gives extra 300 stones all way to 99 Strength, finishing at 25575 stones.

Basic carrying capacity can be modified further by several means.
