Does anyone know the formula for how many points of weapons and armor your warrior can carry? I know it focuses on strength and constitution, but does anyone know the exact formula for figuring it out?

Thanks.

I've seen at least 4 different formulas. As far as I know, though, nobody has seen the code to confirm or deny these formulas.

The easiest (and probably most common) is

ST + (Lesser of ST/CN) - 6

DotarSojat -- You pose an excellent question.

Encumbrance (ENC) is very important when filling out your strategy sheet. You get a penalty when you put too much weight on your guy in armor, helm, and weapons. I've been using the popular formula Assur presented and it has helped me keep from overloading my fighters.

A while back, I wrote a short article entitled, "Dress for Success", in the DM-93 Noblish Island newsletter. I'd recommend reading the DM-93 Newsletter back issues. if you haven't already, because there is a wealth of info there as well as this forum. I'm always learning something new from that source. Assur and Consortium affiliates are regular contributors as well as Jorja. All three have continually provided valuable tips to me since returning to the game last fall.

Keep asking you questions. Also, share your discoveries as well. You might be surprised at the feedback from the DM2 experts. I've been helped when my discoveries & assumptions were both right and wrong.

Best of luck dualing,
Trim
