Melee Weapon Weight

Postby neverfox » Sat May 12, 2012 3:01 am

Forgive me if this question has already been addressed (or if I simply missed something is reading through the core book) but the search function is ignoring all of my queries.

There doesn't seem to be any mention of melee weapon weights in the core book. How do you deal with the contribution of weapons to encumbrance? Is there a general rule that can be applied to the size categories that works well?

I do give the weight in the text in the weapons book, but yes this is an omission.

But weapons made for fighting (as opposd to tools adapted as weapons) do tend to fall into predictable weights, roughly as follows based on size

T up to 1 lb
S 1-2 lbs
M 1-3 lbs
L 2-5 lbs
VL 4-7 lbs

This would apply to all the weapons, including maces axes and hammers.
