Encumbrance (Enc) is a measure of an item’s size, shape and weight. Bulky items will therefore have a higher Encumbrance than smaller, but heavier items.
Characters can carry a number of Encumbrance points equal to their Size + (Physical Strength x 2) without penalty. If a character exceeds their carrying limit, they are considered to be encumbered. For each point over the limit, Physical Strength and Physical Agility are reduced by one for the purposes of tests and calculating movement.
