    You can now train to reduce your encumbrance. The Physical Fitness skill now reduces encumbrance by 1 pound for every 10 skill bonus. For example, someone with 10 ranks (50 skill bonus) will see a 5 lbs reduction.

    Additionally, a new Ascension Skill has been released at the Common tier:
    Name: Porter [porter]
    Type: Passive Buff
    Other Requirements: None
    Available to: All
    Prerequisites: 10 ascension ranks combined between Strength and Physical Fitness.
    Ascension Ability Points:
    CEIL(Rank / 5)
    Mechanics: Decreases encumbrance by 2 pounds per rank

    Then the game went down for maintenance, probably to increase the weight of everything in the game.

    Encumbrance is 100% the reason I've never played a tiny person race. Happy to see this change.

    The point is though this change is a massive buff to small races that I frankly think they did not need.

    My Giantman doesn’t really need an extra +40 lb carrying capacity, he fries or finishes his bounty long before he hits encumbrance issues. A Halfling on the otherhand I would guess this update is life-changing.

    But why? They get a ton of other benefits.

    Balance through player annoyance is not good balance, IMHO.

    .
    My takeaway is that if you QQ enough on the officials, you get something good. At least, that's clearly what appeared to have happened here, based on the rampant QQing about poor halflings and the new SMR changes.

    Encumbrance is stupid and they should just remove it from the game entirely.
