CometStrike: The size of the comet IS related to the Force. The diameter of the
comet is the force of the spell in centimeters.

AT system: You may know that generally the kneecap and groin and head area are
vulnerable, but you don't know about the distribution of various arteries,
nerves, tendon connections, and other organ disbursement throughout the body.
Moreover, the reason the force is increased and not just say, two dice added,
is to reflect the more damaging nature of each attack due to the knowledge (not
the preciseness, as in a smartgunlink) of eack attack. Also, someone mentioned
that the only advantage this gives over other systems is the fact that it is
also useful for Armed and Unarmed combat --- you think this is minor !?!?!?!?
And yes, the price is to cheap, new price is: =Y=3,100. As for how this program
works, essentially it has in memory a 3D motion/shape mapper which overlays the
knowledge (vulnerability map) over recognized shapes (bipeds), it then feeds
this info into the cybereyes display.
