D&D Counters
Stowage Capacity


How much does a backpack hold? Whatever the DM decides is realistically feasible. With that simple stroke of logic, D&D 3E did away with concrete stowage capacities. But when you need to know how much gold you can haul away from the dragon's hoard, sometimes you want a little more precision. Here, then, are the 2E stowage rules, brought back from the dead.
