Re: (TFT) Animated TFT Battles

So the quick notes;

1 pt ST = 5.5 foot pounds force.
ST 10 is Joe Average with 55 pounds of "force" tying loosely to the
weight of "work" with a surprising and well populated range of items
and labor products measured more or less in the neighborhood of 55lbs
from rucksacks and bags of 1000 drachma sized gold pieces to bushels,
pecks and other units of agriculture expected to be gathered in an
hours work and so forth and so on... so not only encumbrance but also
work gets covered here and encumbrance gets a kick in the head from ST
100 which is equal to 1 HP which ties engines and vehicles nicely in
with encumbrance and work... oh yeah and a new factor of ST I call pST
for passive ST is in there for some armor damage effects... like so;
