--fixed a bug in which enemy healers would skip their turns if set to Passive and no enemies were within maximum attack range; they now check for allies to heal as normal, regardless of how far away enemies are

--put in placeholder death monologues for Naila Hashmal, Oliver Spenks, Edwin Gabbergast, Sarn Kamina, and Siripent.

--increased the effectiveness of Weakened status; it now subtracts 4 from a character's strength instead of 2.

--did some work on finalizing the defensive battle to rescue Sarn Kamina; took Cloch out of the battle so that I might give him his own battle in the mines.

--created new cut scene with the lissit stowing away aboard the ship :)

--went back and tied up some loose ends with the game's character progression; scheduled learning of advanced abilities for characters who didn't have that programmed in yet, and added the Promotable tag to certain recruitable characters who didn't yet have it.

--created NPCs for $300+ Kickstarter backers; Doran Chamberlain and Annel Stormhunter.

--you can now use the TeachAttack script action in static cut scenes, provided you delimit the affected character's first and last name with a colon. (This will only work on characters who have already appeared in at least one battle on the side of army 0.)

--added an optional parameter to FadePortrait that allows you to have portraits go transparent and then fade in instead of having them fade out.

--fixed a bug that would sometimes cause the SpawnRandomly script action to not work properly.

--ItemDrop now has a mandatory first parameter; a number between 0 and 1 that determines the minimum distance from character spawn points that the item will be forced to drop. (Higher means farther away.)

--updated the manual with documentation on FadePortrait, as well as a new lissit word.

--Charge now does 150% the amount of damage that Lance does, instead of 140%.

--updated Emma and Sabrina so they eventually learn Feint and Double Strike.

--refined draft of the Battle with Cloch, adjusted its difficulty downward somewhat.

--created new cut scene with Emma and Sabrina on the ship after Tarion appears to Emma, in which Emma learns the ability Inspire.

--reduced the psy power of the five guardians of Coria Pass to account for the increased damage level of the elemental blasts

--added Archos into the game; created new enemies

--created rough draft of the battle with Archos

--reduced the energy cost of Motivate from 5 to 2; created new attack, Inspire, an AOE version of Motivate that Emma can learn. :)

--updated the game's sound and music code to support multiple different swfs holding ambient sound loops and music, then split the game's existing loops into two separate swf files. (I had reached the limit on how many ambient sound loops and music tracks Flash would let me stuff into a single swf file, and would've had to make do without adding in the final boss music and new environmental loops otherwise.)

--wrote a new cut scene, spruced up and completed two other cut scenes that were in rough draft form.

--added new environmental sound loops: beach and open sea.

--updated some of the game's tracks with new, final mastered versions; added final boss music to the game.

--added the character Malcolm Eichan to the game.

--reduced the price of kite shields from 320 aura to 250.

--gave longbows their own variant on Arced Shot: Longbow. This gets around the issue with Arced Shot being dependent on having Bow. Because longbows don't give the character Bow, this was causing longbows to not give the equipped character any attacks at all!

--increased the base strength bonus of the iron longbow from 7 to 9, and boosted the strength bonus of the recurve longbow to 13.
