*This is actually based on a real incident in a game I ran years ago. Back in my early days as a GM I went through a period where I strictly enforced the encumbrance rules. My players hated me for it because I came up with the dirty tactic of placing treasure in small denomination coins such as copper or silver pieces. This often forced the players to make some difficult decisions such as leaving things behind. It also caused them to make some ‘stupid’ decisions such as forcing a rescued princess to carry several large bags of coins. — Jolly
