Subj: Changes and fixes

We've just loaded up a slew of changed and bugfixes, the details are as
follows:

- A new config option is available for visually impared players using a
screen reader: CONFIG SCREENREADER ON|OFF

- VENGEANCE (Necromancy) has been fixed to correctly fire when in "No XP
loss" conditions (home city/CTF/etc.)

- The command BOARD SHIP can no longer be forced.

- COMPASSSLASH, ARMSLASH, LEGSLASH, CENTRESLASH, DRAWSLASH (Two Arts)
will now cause limb damage to the attacker if the ability is reflected
by an aura of rebounding.

- Being hamstrung no longer impedes movement in ASTRALFORM or BLACKWIND.

commodities when the attempt failed.

their noose or are no longer in the trees.
