I'm making a small RPG game and I'd like to not put the precise weight up for display, at least for non identified objects.

The problem is I know of only two words, light and heavy, that describe weight. Sure I could modulate them with 'very' and throw in some medium weight but it seems like an unworthy shortcut.

Could you help me out with a list of different weights for various "RPG" items (from extremely light (a mushroom) to very heavy (like a boulder) through daggers, breast plates and war axes ?

I'm sorry if this is not the place to ask questions like this here.

    \$\begingroup\$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because I'm not sure this requires the expertise of an RPG community to be answered. You might have better luck on the English language & usage Stack. It also kind of seems like the RPG you're making is a video game RPG which is also off-topic here as we're a Stack for Pen and Paper/tabletop RPGs. \$\endgroup\$ – Purple Monkey May 29 '17 at 10:30

    \$\begingroup\$ I recommend you also do some research using a thesaurus before turning to EL&U. \$\endgroup\$ – doppelgreener May 29 '17 at 12:03
  • \$\begingroup\$ +1 for recommendations but -1 because I'm specifically here in the pen and paper RPG furum to ask this, in a video game forum they'd just recommend me putting the numbers in there. Guess I have to dig up my old D&D books for hints. \$\endgroup\$ – Valmond May 29 '17 at 12:55

    \$\begingroup\$ We also have a list of forums we recommend for this sort of (discussion/list-generation/brainstorming) question. And I'll note that Our Very Own Role-playing Games Chat is one of those forums--I'm sure you'd get great ideas picking the brains of those hanging around there any time. \$\endgroup\$ – nitsua60 May 29 '17 at 13:01
