Super Simple/Reasonably Accurate Encumbrance

No "weighing" required.  Does a Long Sword weigh/encumber the same as a Lantern?  Not exactly, but close enough!  Allows Old School Style approximation/negotiation

ENCUMBRANCE
PCs have 24 Encumbrance/Inventory Slots before becoming Overburdened, 30 max, filling more than 6 assumes a backpack, or other container(s)
Most carried/equipped items, in a wide range of sizes, from a Medium Weapon (hand axe, short sword), lantern, 50’ of rope, up to larger items such as Primary Weapons, Rations (1 day) take up one ENC Slot, however…
Worn Items clothing and jewelry do not count toward Encumbrance
Armor Light = 2 Slots, Medium = 4, Heavy = 6
Oversized Items long/bulky items count as two (or more) slots; Heavy weapons, Medium shields, polearms, longbows, a quiver arrows (20), 100’ rope…
Monies 100 Coins / 5 Bars/Ingots / One Brick = 1 slot 
Small Items = 3 per slot; torches, Light Weapons...
Small bundled items may = one slot; 6 Potions (1oz) in padded pouch, 6 Scrolls/tube...
STR Bonus = Number of Bonus slots, do not count toward Encumbrance
