Looking at the ENC rules in preparation for my at-work lunchtime HOW game, I'm wondering what the official take on ENC granting equipment such as backpacks, belt pouches and sacks.
One way to look at it is the ENC granted by gear is actually a capacity, so your large sack holds up to 3 ENC of goods, provided the goods fit (GM will have to weigh in if players attempt to place a shovel into a large sack. For example, a backpack has +4 ENC but weighs 1 ENC. When the backpack is full the total burden counting against a character is 5 ENC.
Alternatively, carrying the ENC granting item provides extra ENC like slots for a small increase in the bearer's ENC. For example, you have a backpack rated as +4 ENC. A full backpack (4 ENC) counts as ENC 1 which counts towards a character's ENC limit. This is similar to how how the encumbrance system works in Castles & Crusades which gives you a reason to have scabbards for your swords.
