u mean u dont know what encumberence is?!? wow. its the weight u can carry. drop all the thingd u dont need like bones and cups and the like. u have a weight limit called encumbrence. after u go over that number, u cannot move until u lose some wieght. its a number in the left corner of the inventory.

Have you been using the TGM cheat? Because you can carry however much you want, but when it is disabled and you are beyond the encumberance limit you will be encumbered. Besides, tgm rips what you bought the game for. DO NOT USE TGM!!!

Yes, the higher your strength, the more you can carry.

Just for the record:

Dictionary.com en·cum·brance premium.gifthinsp.pngspeaker.gif /ɛnˈkʌmthinsp.pngbrəns/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[en-kuhm-bruhthinsp.pngns] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation –noun

1.something that encumbers; something burdensome, useless, or superfluous; burden; hindrance: Poverty was a lifelong encumbrance.

en·cum·ber premium.gifspeaker.gif (ěn-kŭm'bər) Pronunciation Key tr.v. en·cum·bered, en·cum·ber·ing, en·cum·bers

  1. To put a heavy load on; burden: a hiker who was encumbered with a heavy pack; a life that has always been encumbered with responsibilities.

Got it?

I know it's tempting, but don't carry things you don't use. I sometimes get cool armor or a weapon I think I might use.. but I never do. So all it's doing is limiting how much I can carry. If you don't want to sell it, put it in a chest in your house or something.

Easy solution is to just buy a house and keep loot that you aren't using in a storage cupboard.

Or, if you have Shadowmere you can take advantage of a useful glitch - first knock her out by jumping off a cliff or something. 'Use' her unconscious body and deposit any unwanted or heavy items into her inventory. Then wait for her to come round. Bingo, instant portable storage! To add or remove items from Shadowmere just knock her out again and take/replace what you need.

I gave in and bought the shack. I could get essentially free lodgings from Aleswell Inn having completed the 'Zero Visibility' quest but it doesn't have any storage space, so...

Ideally I'd like a second house. I'm saving up for Rosethorn Hall at the moment.
