Salutation Bruno, comment va?
So... I play WHQ as classic D&D style, in the same world too.
The rules below are "house" rules used for my campaigns.

DETERMINATE THE ENCOUMBRANCE VALUE:
F X 10 X Size Q
Size Q is definate by the WHFB stand size:
1 little (As animal, dog etc...): 2x2 cm Q= 0.5
2 human: 2x2 cm Q= 1.5
3 great: 2.5x2.5 cm and horse Q= 3
4 huge: 4x4cm Q= 5
5 Colossal: 5x5cm Q= 10

You need to determinate all values for ich item. But, more simply, you can use the "stock" value equipment tables. In fact, the ending result is almost the same.
You can give at your warriors a holy bag too emoticon

Salut
If you play to WFRPv2 or v1 you can find encumbrance of a lot of items.

An Heroes can have F*100 points of encumbrance. F*200 for Dwarfs and F*300 for horse... By tranche of 50 pts -1 M

Re: Encumbrance Rules


Base encumberance limits on the strength of the hero/pack animal.

As most items have a Gold value use that to count towards encumberance. Maybe some items can be created to add or decrease how much a player can carry.

Is not F but S like Strengh... F is for the french (Force in french = Strengh in english version)

For Ogre maybe x300 or x400 is a idea.

Crap, my document doesn't exist anymore, I'll type it out real quick... These rules are not meant to be realistic so much as to keep my brother from hoarding all the Treasure cards :b

WHQ ENCUMBRANCE (or Monty Haul?)

1. Every character can wear the items of armor allowed by their race/class and carry two hands worth of equipment for free. For example: two sword, sword and shield, sword and bow, etc.

2. WHQ is a game of quick equipment changes involving such items as one-use shields, etc. so STR determines how many items can be kept at the ready (slung over the shoulder, worn on the back, etc.) for quick switches of what is held or wielded. If a character is STR 1, then 1 extra item may be held at the ready. Add 1 extra item per STR point. (Example: Ragdarock the Barbarian is STR 3 and is traveling with a Lantern and a Sword in hand and a Shield at the ready. He could also be traveling about with a special one-use Shield and a Bow as well with no penalties.) For purposes of this rule, remember two things: it applies only to the Lantern, Weapons and Shields only. Also, Bows and Staves count as one-handed weapons for encumbrance purposes, while two-handed weapons count as, er, two.

3. Daggers, knives, pistols and throwing stars don't count as weapons for encumbrance because they are supposed to be weapons that can be whipped out in an emergency. Also, this makes them ideal weapons for weaker characters.

4. Characters can carry one item of armor in their packs above and beyond what they may wear for each two points of Strength on their profile. This applies for each body location, so a STR 4 Barbarian can wear a full suit of armor and still carry two pairs of gauntlets, two helmets, etc.

5. The exception to rule 4 is that a character may only ever carry one extra suit of armor or breastplate.

6. All other items and equipment such as one-use items, potions and scrolls are unlimited in number, and you still may hoard as many of these and as much gold as your greedy heart desires.

7. For each infraction of the above rules, your character is at -1 Movement per turn, and must drop equipment or have Strength spells cast upon them in order to move normally. The only other way to get around this is to use optional Henchman rules.

Re: Encumbrance Rules


Well, I haven't had too much input on 2nd edition because I don't think I have the same goals as everyone else. For example, I still use Gold for training instead of exp and don't desire to make WHQ as sophisticated as other Roleplaying games.

On the other hand, I have always been interested in overhauling the magic system, but I don't know that I'm on same page as everyone else with that...
