Weights

LiyaneLiyane Member Posts: 103 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
What's with how crazy weights are?

Princess Lispethia is described as a "slip of a girl" and "14 years old" yet weighs 120 pounds.
My enchanted "pebble" weighs 3 pounds.

And my favorite to date:
A swarm of bees weighs 125 pounds.
A bee weighs about .1 of a gram (0.0035274 oz)
So 125 pounds of bees = 566,990 bees

Laerin came up with a different total using a 3K bees per pound measurement to come out to a mere 375,000 bees

    You should live in a metric country, then all these crazy weights are just magical fairy units and everything makes sense.

    This large shield glows softly yellow. Emblazoned on its enchanted surface are ancient Aldar runes 
    that seem to undulate before your eyes.
    It weighs 0 ounce(s).

    Yup

    I wonder if they had plans to use weight for something but never got around to it

    @Torinn lets hope not. Can imagine killing the septacean and suddenly being unable to move with its massive corpse weighing me down.

    A contraption of curious design, this piece of equipment bears faint resemblance to a traditional kite shield, albeit with marked 
    differences. The body of the shield is curved and hollow, a series of buckled straps within evidently designating the space for the bulk of 
    the wearer's arm. Otherwise sleek in shape and form, arrays of contracted and overlapped platinum plates adorn the sides of the shield in a 
    wing-like crest, able to be extended on demand by clenching the glove-like appendage which rests at the very end of the wearer's arm, 
    covering their hand entirely. Runes of unknown origin flutter across the winged extensions, thrumming with latent power.
    It weighs 0 ounce(s).

    Yep, mine's 0 ounces too.

    I'm convinced it's not actually the mass of the item that is weird, but that gravity in Achaea affects objects differently. That's why things like mass salve work- they alter how gravity works. So clearly bees have mastered gravity alteration and increase their weight to stimulate wing development in order to further the evolution of their kind so that in the year 1300, they can overtake us all. >.>

    Or the bees can't help themselves from the royal jelly.
