The Jester had an intriguing blog about encumbrance recently, which got me remembering a proposal for encumbrance I had devised back in the 3e days. I had it all detailed in the old Regdar's Repository, but it got all chewed up when the forums got moved. It was fairly simple, so I'm reproducing it here.
Encumbrance As It Stands
Right now, in 4e, encumbrance is simple. You get 10 pounds (or 4.5 kilos) per Strength point. If you go over that, you're slowed. Over 20 pounds (or 9 kilos) per Strength point, and you have to drag the goods. Over 50 pounds (22.5 kilos) per Strength point, and you are immobilized. For most people, that's plenty. However, it has some issues.
