Regardless of which, whether a pole is encumbering in a dungeon or
not does not account for when you're walking outside in a grass field,
underneathe a clear blue sky, white wisps of clouds smeared gently.  So,
why is that pole 25lbs, how is it encumbering you?  IMHO, encumberance
of an object and it's weight should be seperate.  This permits you to
have encumberance modify weight (to maybe different degrees) in different
terrain and enviromental conditions as compared to walking around with
nothing to encumber them.
