Beasts of Burden
If you have suggestions of carrying capacity for different creatures, or know a place that has them let me know. I keep looking at the AD&D Wilderness Survival guide, but they gave 500 pounds for a mule which made me doubt their judgement (some mules could do that, but I think the average mule was smaller). How about dinosaurs or mythical creatures?
Oh, and the elephant has enough boxes for 10.5 eight-sided hitdice. If that isn't enough for a particular ruleset let me know, but I wanted it to look aesthetically pleasing too.
Late night addition: It's pretty cool learning how these different animals are good at different things maybe this is the first step to having these kinds of creatures more real in my world. For example, llamas carry less than all the others but eat less and are even better than mules on treacherous terrain. They are fine in the cold too.
