L’Île Mysterieuse: Equipment


Encumbrance is designated in encumbrance points. A character can carry as many encumbrance points as their strength score without any penalties. When carrying encumbrance points up to two times their strength score, characters are considered encumbered, which gives them a 50 % slower movement score, makes them automatically surprised and gives them an initiative penalty of -1.

Some items have an encumbrance score of less than one. Those items are not counted towards encumbrance unless a full set of n/n is carried, in which case their encumbrance value is one. Very small single items can be ignored for encumbrance purposes. 1,000 coins are considered to have an encumbrance score of one. Rations for a day are considered to have an encumbrance score of one, but iron rations have an encumbrance score of one per week of rations.

Weapons can be attached to belts and bandoliers. No weight for containers, except their contents. Characters weigh as many encumbrance points as their constitution score.
