Food and weight

Just found this on the wild internet -- it applies to Angband, too:





... and I wish it worked like this in real life, too.

The incentive to not overeat in Sil is pretty strong

To be fair, that does in fact apply in real life, at least in the same sense that it does in RPGs. When you're on a hike, eating food is the only real way to reduce your load, and loading back up on water can become quite painful.

+1 !!! I hiked the Pacific Crest Trail in 2011, and eating to reduce the load was definitely involved. Eating everything possible when in towns was also necessary, since I was burning upwards of 12,000 calories a day -- far more than I could carry in my pack.
