Notes[edit | edit source]

  • 'Maximum Weight' in this table refers to the weight of the creature, rather than the creature's carrying capacity, which is determined by its Strength.
  • When the Enlarge/Reduce Enlarge/Reduce spell increases or decreases a creature's Size and weight, additional weight is added or subtracted if necessary to place the creature in the correct Size category.
