    5E Food weight consumption and weight of food/rations

    I do not know if I am as hung up over the realities of the numbers as much as I am the incongruities of the numbers within the rules. It seems that the weight of food required per day was written only in context of foraging and it did not count the costs and weights of purchased food. I'm not...

    5E How the Camel lost its hump

    Quick google search indicated that a riding horse should carry no more than 20% or its weight, or typically around 240 lbs (and that includes the rider!). Way less than the 480 lbs cited in the rules. Whereas a camel can carry anywhere between 375 lbs and 600 lbs. The 480 lbs cited in the...

    5E How the Camel lost its hump

    Camels can survive up to seven months without food and water, but these are wild camels and not carrying a load, i do not think it is a worthwhile model to try to represent.

    5E How the Camel lost its hump

    True, but I do not think such a small bonus influences any player to choose a camel over a horses. I see the fiscal decision still driving the decision in game for 5e. Unlike 1st edition, the camel offered a clear choice over a horse for desert environments.

    5E How the Camel lost its hump

    I thought about that. I was thinking of sandwalk ability, but that sounded too much like a 4e terrainwalk ability that does not exist in 5e. (except for the White Dragon which has Ice Walk). I also did not want to overemphasize soft sand as difficult terrain and leave it up to the DM to make...

    5E How the Camel lost its hump

    I did not double check publication dates, which I should have. I keep forgetting that the basic rules were still being republished in new edition after the AD&D 1st Edition came out. If there was ever a group to double-check research, this place is it. I'll make some edits to correct.

    Good catch -- I'll edit.

    5E How the Camel lost its hump

    How the Camel lost its hump When the camel was first introduced as a mount in Dungeons and Dragons, it was a premium mount with preferred abilities over a riding horse in desert environments. However, over the years, with each subsequent edition, the camel has been relegated to a poor man’s...

    5E Food weight consumption and weight of food/rations

    Perhaps the "Feed" for animals is like the human rations then, which explains the excessive weight to need? It does not spoil, but it is also not fresh grazing grass.

    5E Food weight consumption and weight of food/rations

    I just thought of something regarding the weight disparity of rations per day and food requirements per day. Food spoils. Rations don't. So a pound of is all that is needed fresh, but it will spoil if not consumed within a day. Whereas the rations can keep for a long time, but weigh more. I...

    5E Food weight consumption and weight of food/rations

    So I am about to run a campaign with an austere environment and I am refreshing my memory on the rules for food and water consumption, travel distance, weather impacts, and exhaustion. However, I’ve come across a weird incongruity in the rules regarding feeding requirements. According to the...
