Obsolete: This article refers to an aspect of the game which has been removed. It is retained for historical reference only.

An aum (Arbitrary Unit of Mass) is the standard unit of weight in Crawl. It has no real-world equivalent; item weights are generally assigned according to game balance rather than realism.

Players have a carrying capacity of 100 + (25 * strength) aum. If you are above capacity, you'll gain the encumbered condition.


  • In 0.15, DCSS lost all concept of weight. Now, the only limitation of the inventory is the 52-slot limit.
  • Prior to 0.13, players could carry up to 30 * strength aum.
  • Prior to 0.6, players could only carry 10 * strength aum.
