For other uses, see Feather.

Feather is a magical effect, alchemical effect, and a spell that temporarily decreases the target's encumbrance, resulting in a slower loss of Fatigue and an increased capacity to carry items. Its magnitude directly corresponds to the reduction of weight that is perceived. The inverse of this effect is Burden. Feather is a member of the Alteration school of magic, governed by Willpower. Its base Magicka cost is 1 point.


Fortify Attribute: Strength can be used to achieve a similar result and has additional secondary affects.
