If you're going from Caspanion to Thalkettoth, then your failure rates should go up because your INT is lower. If you're going from Thalkettoth to Caspanion and seeing your failure rates go up, then something strange is going on. So far as I'm aware, the weight-based encumbrance only affects your SP, not your failure rates.

Pete: thanks for the correction/addition.
