I've tried to simplify it by saying that anytime you roll %ile doubles, d20
against CON.  Fail, you get a poker chip which represents -10% to everything
until you reasonably rest.
+2 for every STR worth of ENC you're carrying (max limit 5xSTR)

Honestly, I haven't number-crunched to see if it generates 'realistic'
results, but it a) provides a credible and easily-understood link between
your load and fatigue consequences; and b) makes the penalty for fatigue
significant enough that people are aware of it, but not obsessive.
