The slot sizes

Forget about weights. Clear your mind. This system replaces that with item slots of six different sizes. Tiny, small, ration, medium, big, and heavy.

Rations are twice as big as small things. They’re the only thing that’s that size. Heavy is also an unusual size, only a few normal gear items count as that heavy, and they’re listed on the sheet.

How to use this

  1. List your strength, and ⅓ and ⅔ of it too.
  2. Check your encumbrance budget. One check mark tells you three things: your penalty (no penalty, just a little slower, or a lot slower and disadvantage on all strength, dex and con rolls), your current gear weight, and how many circles you can mark.
  3. Mark that many circles. You’ve already paid for them with the check mark, so just go ahead. The backpack costs a double circle, mark both. Armor can cost 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 depending on type.
  4. Fill in your gear in the slots that you’ve gotten by marking circles.

That’s it!

The rest should be self-evident so go play! Here is my list of item sizes and the most useful info; and here for an excessive amount of behind-the-scenes rambling & design intent.
