Default QREBS - Burden

As written, Burden from QREBS is added to an object's weight in kilos to determine felt or effective weight. The example given on p.192 of the BBB is an ACR-10 weighing 2.8kg with Burden-4; effective weight is zero.

I don't feel this is very realistic. It's a rifle; it should feel like some kind of encumbrance.

How about adding or subtracting 10% to effective weight per unit of Burden. At most, B+5 will add 50% to felt weight; at best, B-5 will make the object feel half the weight. Round to whatever level necessary.

The ACR-10 B=-4 would have an effective weight of 1.7kg under this system.

...This ends the Party Political Broadcast by the Pettifogging Detail Party. Normal programme will resume shortly...
