Item Weights

NOTE: While I still like the guidelines here, I tended not to follow them, so take this with a grain of salt.

Any magic items that scale with the user scale in weight appropriately: doubling for each step larger, halving for each step down.

Standard items that have a price based entirely on weight (for example, Trail Rations) have their cost cut or multiplied for their size, but round up to the nearest coin of the same denomination. Characters may purchase food for a medium creature instead, which will last longer or short as appropriate, which may or may not be more economical.

Consider the following weights official. This way you cannot have infinite paper in a Bag of Holding :)
