After rediscovering this site recently, I dusted off a project of mine I started last year. and finally got it to a state where I’m happy enough with it to post it to the cruel wilds of the Internet.
I started this last year when my Sorceress in a Pathfinder game was going to eventually take the route of the Bloatmage (or at least the Bloatmage Initiate feat), and wanted to flesh out what really meant to be “obese” in the game. I’ve seen a few other homebrew rules out there, but they were either too incomparable, complicated, or I just didn’t like the theme of them (I like to keep weights more grounded in reality).
Let me know what y’all think, and if you have ideas for improvements or additions, let me know here, or via e-mail (my address is in the document itself).
January 22, 2019 - Added the Body Types; section (moving it out of the ideas section into the main section). Clarified dexterity penalties for Morbidly and Grossly Obese. Rephrased ant haul to make it easier to read.
January 13, 2019 - Updated the text in regards to ant haul and other encumbrance-affecting magics. Some spelling and grammar fixes. Fix to the Overweight entry on the chart (it listed no saving throw penalty when there was supposed to be a -1).
January 11, 2019: First public posting onto the Internet.
