Basic Lift is clearly defined (pounds over your head with one hand in one second) and is also used to calculate encumbrance levels. But what lifting capacity refers to in game terms is not clear to me. If you have BL figured, do you ever need to refer to lifting capacity?

I figured it was some explanatory term and not a characteristic, but the given formula "the square of ST" made me wonder if it was meant to be calculated or not. I'll leave it alone and focus on BL.

Get into Campaigns and there's more about Lifting and Moving things and it's all defined by BL.
