I've been out of commission for the past couple of days due to food poisoning, but I did manage to program the visual effects for Fire Gate into the game! (And in the process, fixed a couple more bugs relating to the x and y offsets for visual effects).

Light Bomb now has its own, totally awesome animation in-game! It's broken into parts, so I can't just attach an animated gif of the whole thing, but I'll record a move soon so you can see it all. For now, here's a gif of the explosion part.

Also: Cryo Cross is done, and boy does it ever look awesome! That's now in-game too. ;)

--new script actions: AddTag and RemoveTag. Each has two parameters: character name and tag name. AddTag will add the named tag to the named character; RemoveTag will remove it. (For RemoveTag, you can also just use ALL as the tag name parameter if you want to clear all tags from the named character.)

--new script actions: AddTagToArmy and RemoveTagFromArmy. Exactly like AddTag and RemoveTag above, except that the first parameter takes the number of an army on the map instead of a character name, and performs the operation on the entire army.

--you can now use -1 as the team number parameter in the Fatigue condition to set the same starting fatigue level for every army

I've added accuracy to the damage preview for attacks. It'll usually be 100%, but this way there won't be any crazy surprises if your character is on ice (or is blinded, or is attacking someone with a dodge percentage, or is using an attack that has base accuracy less than 100%, or...) ;)

Added documentation for DamageChar and DamageCharAt to the manual.

Made it so you get hurt if you wander into the campfire in the Zash and Red battle.
