I'm pretty sure the bodies won't be reduced, as they've been increased in the not to distant past. Also, I do believe race, and gender are already taken into account when body weights are considered. The last female halfling I came across was only like 50 pounds. I could've put her in a pocket and forgotten about her.

The only thing that should weigh that much is a male half-orc/caliban.

Doesn't matter, and no it doesn't, so be glad for that at least. :lol:

Yeah, if things were overtly realistic, you'd be tugging 200-300 pounds of gear along with that fighter.

lol.. actually I'd love to see containers that only fit certain things.. like quivers that only fit arrows, a scabbard only big enough for a sword but only takes up maybe 2 slots..

Was with a corpse, standing in waist high water, and the message said, at least I think, that I had to rest before being able to move.  So I had to rest under water oddly enough, since moving to the side out of the water wasn't possible due to being stuck.  Icly, it didn't make sense that without any warning you can't move.  I'm sure a point comes where one can't move, but you sense it coming with fatigue, and in that  situation in the scrag cave, icly Nell would have dragged the corpse out of the water to the ledge, but was forced to rest in the water so as to then move.

Just a wierd a situation.

In your case, Icono, you could have dropped the corpse and should then have been able to move.

Either way, I've been revising the system. You'll now get an encumbrance score that's reset every rest and the immobility won't kick in before reaching a score of 10. The system checks once every minute, and if your encumbrance is more than twice what you can normally carry unencumbered, you'll get a point. If you have more than thrice what you can normally carry, you'll get two points - four times, three points etc. You'll get messages as you are gradually feeling exhausted.

This also means that you will be able to walk around as long as you like heavily encumbered as long as you don't get above the two-times your normal to heavy encumbrance limit, which is considerably higher. You'll also be able to walk around ten minutes within the two to three times normal encumbrance range. It should be much more lenient.

You'll see the changes as per next update, than I'm uploading at the moment.

I weighed 217lbs when I checked myself at the gym last night, and I am definitely no half-orc.


But yeah, for the halflings, I figured they would be <100lbs.
