Encumbrance is a player statistic that represents the total amount of weight the player can carry.

Players can see the total weight of the items they are carrying on the Backpack screen from the Status game menu. This will include items they have equipped as well as those carried in the inventory. Many items weigh fractions of a kilogram, but the Backpack screen truncates the amount to two decimal places.


Carrying limitEdit

The player's carrying limit when fully rested is 30 kilograms. The carry limit can only be increased by equipping a moose-hide satchel.

The amount of weight the character is carrying increases the rate of fatigue. Also, as fatigue drains toward its lower limit, the maximum carry weight will begin to decrease. Encumbrance penalties apply as normal. Once the 'Exhausted' fatigue state is reached, the carry limit will become half the normal value (or 15kg). The carry limit will be restored once the player has sufficiently rested.
