Comics: Roll Dice Already!

Carrying Capacity

Now Playing:


In the game, Emma and Farid discover a cache of stolen goods, filled to bursting with weapons, jewelry, and food. Tash speaks in a voice over.

Tash: Breaking through the underbrush, you find the thieves’ lair, full to bursting with stolen goods.

Farid: Wow, no way we’ll be able to carry all this on our own.

At the table, Emma looks in the book while Tash explains.

Tash: You’ll have to make a Circles test back in town to find some help.

Emma: Hang on, it says here the limit of how much we can carry is based on how much we can write down in the Gear space on our character sheet.

Tash: Yes, but there’s no way you can fit that much stuff on your sheet.

Emma: Challenge accepted.

Emma fills the Gear section of her character sheet with increasingly tiny handwriting.

In the game, Emma carries a huge pile of stuff on her back while Farid watches in confusion.

    Square cube law is a funny thing. Mice would be able to carry more stuff proportionate to their size than humans would be able to, so maybe its not so far fetched

      This is true. Though if my understanding of physics is correct, mouse sized bows would be completely useless.

    I imagine rodent adventurers could get a lot of mileage out of cheek pouches.

    Another few solutions:
    Write a google document and put the link on your character sheet.
    Put “the stuff we found in the thieves lair”
    Add a “*” and list everything on the back
