OK, I know that adding eq slots is unfeasible for many reasons.
But here's my (maybe) more possible idea. Since I have a history
of low-strength characters, until now, I often have problems
picking up things like boats when I need them. So I was thinking
if you could maybe add a slot 'on back' that would be only used
for backpack-like containers, no stat items whatsoever, and would
relieve lots of weight carried problems by equipping all that weight.
Since there's some kickin' large containers out there that could
logically be worn on your back, this would be a big help to weaklings.

Why not simply give up a slot and wear a backpack there? If it isn't
worth it, then trim the weight of your char. As far as I can see, adding
another slot like that would make it fairly hard to steal stuff for
thieves (already pretty darn hard thanks to curse) not to mention it
being a 1k slot for reducing everyone's acs by -25 or so.

Giving up a slot wouldn't be so bad if it were a slot other than
about body. and you could take ac off of backpacks.

If you use a deerskin bag, you can use the held slot.
If you use a sack, you can use your waist slot.
If you use a top-hat, you can use your head slot.
feh, looks like plenty of slots available already to me.

And there is a great backpack, with good AC, worn about body. Not
being able to carry things is one of the disadvantages of low
strength characters. It is realistic. You even get to cheat a bit
by putting a bunch of stuff in a pack and carrying it with little
or no increase in weight allowed.
