How long until someone realises there is no way a force meter will work in a game as open as SWC? Hell it was annoying enough in restrictive games like KOTOR that changed it based on a stupid belief on dark siders having to be homocidal maniacs.
In SWC it's just around because the equations are written in a way that utilises it, it'll be so easily manipulated people might as well just be allowed to enter whatever number they want.
Ral, the system is designed to incorporate a FM, so rules have to exist for it. But they will not be simple, and will attempt to take into account as much manipulation as possible. Or as much as we can anticipate.
