A Huge quadruped eidolon with Muleback Cords could get by with a strength of 39.

27.2155 tonnes. (English tons, in the tradition of having completely arbitrary multipliers, are 2,000 lbs, not 1,000 lbs.)


You might want to fire your math teacher.

PDFs are exactly the sort of thing that a weight entry of "--" was designed for.


That's 1000 times heavier than my current order of Pathfinder books.

30,000 lbs at 2.2 lbs/kg makes this 13,600 (ish) kg, or 13.6 tonnes. At 2,000 lbs per ton (note the spelling), this is a round 15 tons.

Blerg. I can't read, apparently. I really thought it was 30 tons, even though it clearly says 30,000 pounds.

It's even odder than that. My source says the English ton (the LONG ton) is 2240 lbs vs the American ton (the SHORT ton), the 2000 lb variety. Thus, 30000 lbs is 13.39285714285714 long tons.

This is because 1 ton is equal to 20 hundredweight, but the definition of the hundredweight differs between countries. In the U.S. there are 100 pounds in the hundredweight, and in Britain there are 112 pounds in the hundredweight.

Go figure.
