Patch Notes: 0.20+137 Aulander Jaeger


Theme balance, potency, relationship locks

This patch addresses a fair bit of feedback we've been getting re: theme attacks, potency, armor, and Battledance. The goal with themes and potency is to allow theme attacks to scale into the late game better than they do currently, while not outshining weapons. We want transformations to (always?) be a mixed bag, and this patch also tries to fix some cases where transformations were purely good.

Overall we think this is a big buff to heroes, so enjoy it while it lasts, we'll probably work on monsters next :-P

We also started working more on custom maps to match specific situations, and some of that is ready to roll, and there's a couple new events as well.

In addition, it's now possible to "lock" relationships from the character sheet, which you can use to make sure lovers and rivals remember each other across time and space (all games).

Normally we try to release every two weeks, but lately that's been hard due to the situation, so we might roll with every 3 weeks for a while until child care is available again.
