I couldn't help but calculate the masses of various boulder sizes, with reference to damming the tunnel in Cantona. I used 2.75 g/cm3 for density. This confirms that, say, 5 to 8 characters, working together, can lift a 3-foot diameter boulder.

Perhaps we need one more file on this site to archive game mechanic stuff like this chart, the one I found for falling items as weapons etc. It's a little cumbersome to find these articles again within all the chaff.
