Weight of items, carrying and throwing them.

Will total weight of carried items decrease party speed, if this feature (party speed) is enabled ?
Will very heavy objects be throwable, even one square away ? Hopefully not.

Weight of items will definitely affect how you can throw them, and champions will have a carrying capacity that can slow down the party, just like in Dungeon Master.

Disabling throwing past a certain weight cap? Sure, that's a good idea. What should the limit be? 15Kg? 20Kg?

Throwing range of items should depend on the strongest character. But its not such a big issue after all. Just that when I modded camping sites items for LoG, people were not supposed to move them, so I made them incredibly heavy. Sure, they could not move with them, but they could eventually throw them... ^^
Ho well, no big deal, party speed depending on encumbrance seems much more relevant :-)

Keep up the great work, Georges :-)

I think it makes sense for heavy items (heavier than some formula depending on strength, perhaps even a combined party strength) cannot be thrown, but will drop straight down at your feet if you try.
