I'm building a Pulp Scientist in d20 Past, but having some trouble understanding the rules for Inventions (see my other d20-past questions).
The Scientist advanced class says, "Inventions tend to be bulky, weighing 10 pounds per level of discovery" (d20 Past p84). Which is fine for the two 1st-level discoveries, but what about the five 0th-level discoveries?
Is there a general rule that when multiplying by zero, one should multiply by one instead? If there is, my poor Scientist's starting inventions will weigh 70 lbs.!
Given the horrendous d20 Modern penalties for being encumbered, I don't really want to sink everything into Strength just to carry my gear.
