-- rewrote all the code for saving, loading, and displaying unique character portraits so that they now support variant expressions at runtime, just like the procedurally generated ones do. :)

-- fixed a small handful of dialogue bugs discovered during last night's playtesting.

-- completely rewrote the process that decides what dialogue characters have to make things less linear, and more varied and unpredictable.

Thanks, Carmine! I'm giving this another shot in March 2018--hopefully we can make it happen. :)

-- added a wound system to the game. If a character goes below 1 Health, they now gain a Wound Level greater than 0. Characters with a Wound Level greater than 0 are unable to perform normal nighttime activities or participate in battle, and will have to recover for a number of days equal to their wound level before their health and energy start to regenerate again.

A character's Wound Level corresponds to how far their health drops below 1; a character whose health drops below 1 gets a Wound Level of 1, plus an additional 1 for every x points below 0 their health goes (where x is 10% of the character's maximum health). Thus, for instance, a character with maximum health of 30 who takes 10 damage while at 5 health will end up with a Wound level of 2.

-- characters can now get individualized status effect immunities unconnected to their elemental resistances. (Golems and Spirits are immune to Poisoned; Depressive characters are immune to Enthralled.) Status effect immunities are now implemented, and prevent characters from getting the associated status effect.

-- characters now get twice as much experience from the Practice activity. In addition, Hot-tempered characters in particular can now get a +50% experience boost when practicing by themselves.

-- camp activity narrations can now have a stat requirement associated with them via the char1StatReq attribute, which takes the stat name, a comparison character (=, g, g=, l, or l=), and a value to compare it against.

-- wrote some new character approach lines.

-- tweaked recruitment cost algorithm so Strength / Psy have a heavier impact on a character's price to recruit.

-- fixed a bug in which a character could get the same physical attribute twice (once naturally, and once as a life skill side effect).

-- implemented individual character recovery rates (impacted by the Insomniac and Sound Sleeper attributes) and hooked them into the Rest nighttime activity. Most characters recover 25% of their maximum Health and Energy after a night spent resting; but Insomniac characters recover 20%, and Sound Sleeper characters recover 33%. (Spirits always recover 100% in a single night.)

-- redid the options menu for combat.

-- adjusted the relative probabilities of certain classes being generated. Axefighter, bowman, swordsman, and spearman are now more likely to be generated among physical human classes; psy healer is much more likely to be generated among psy-focused human classes. All other human classes are, in turn, somewhat rarer as a result.

-- added the Throw Voice skill to the game (behaves like a ranged Feint--known by Ventriloquist characters)
