Subj: damage system

The damage system has undergone a bit of an overhaul (well, this happened about a week ago, but I forgot to post). It doesn't affect TOO much stuff, but it does affect some.

Basically, before, intelligence, for instance, only affected attacks that did 'magical' damage. Strength, on the other hand, affected attacks doing physical damage. So, let's say someone had an attack that involved magically conjuring a boulder that got dropped on someone. A troll would do more damage with that spell than a grook, because the troll does more physical damage.

So, what we've done now is set it up so that intelligence affects anything of magical origin that does damage (well, most things. There are always exceptions.) Things affected by this would be stuff like kai choke, mind crush, and so on.

Also, I removed all boar and moon and moss healing messages the other day, in order to help reduce spam during combat.
