Dive fast, die young, leave a high-CHA corpse

An update ready… though it’s not live yet. It will be online closer to the weekends all together with server wipe. Right now you could already test it on local machine – to do so get it from github. Patchnotes:

  • Added additional slow digestion. Golems and Wraiths almost don’t need to eat;
  • Added CHARISMA stat (V 3.4.1 port + adjustments);
  • Charisma influence prices in the shops; later on several new effects will be added;
  • Charisma is end-game stat. The only way to increase Charisma is to drink potions of Augmentation;
  • All races and classes got initial bonuses/maluses to charisma. Eg necromancers got -4 charisma; while priest got +4; spider got -9, while high-elves +5. Please note that character could have certain progression over his life: young high-elves got neutral charisma; though when they become older – it grows.
