2006-05-01 [Veltzeh]: How about masterworking to decrease weight? And carrying capacity for flying?
2006-05-01 [Duredhel]: To fly you need to be at half or under half of your maximum carrying capacity, and MW can decrease weight sometimes, but that depends on the item and GM's call.
2006-05-01 [Adaman]: Dur, if strength is halved by the regular encumberance, wouldn't that make it closer to the critical incumberance?
2006-05-02 [Silverbullet]: ouh, gots a point there! ...though maybe emcumberance and critical encumbrace are only calculated with the base Carrying Capacity..? Let's say a char has 6 str and 5 con, his base CC would be of 30. If his weapons and items weigh more than 30, let's say 34, then the char's str would be halved (bringing it to 3), but his base CC would remain the same....? dunno..
2006-05-02 [Duredhel]: Yeah, since strength is not permanently reduced by encumberance, it does not affect CC.
2006-05-02 [Veltzeh]: And a char who has 6 STR and 5 CON will have a CC of 27 (or 27,5 but I hear it gets rounded down), not 30. Listen to the university math student, now... :P
2006-05-02 [Duredhel]: CC can go to .5 :) since there's items that weight .5
2006-05-02 [Veltzeh]: Whoo!
2006-05-02 [Silverbullet]: ah, crap... you're right Vetlz.... just that i was getting so used to doing my weak chars (5 str/ 5 con) that doing (5+5)/2*5 was getting redundant so i simply was doing 5*5 (str*con) ^^"
2006-05-03 [Veltzeh]: How much do GPs weigh?
2006-05-03 [Veltzeh]: Hey, how about encumbered flying? I bet you'd still be able to fly even though you weren't as fast or strong... so would over half the carrying capacity be encumbered for flying and critically encumbered if the load is over the total CC?
2006-05-03 [Duredhel]: Nah, you can't fly if you're over half your encumberance weight. And I'm not doing GP weight cuz GP changes a lot and quickly, so its too much of a drag to be changing equipment..
