Subj: Knockout info

With the knockout free-for-all coming up tomorrow, I've enacted a
couple of changes to make sure that fights do not go stale for too long.

* After ten minutes have passed without your opponent dying, you will
gain the 'battle_hunger' affliction.
* After fifteen minutes (i.e. five minutes after the previous), you will
gain the 'bloodlust' affliction.


Battle Hunger will prevent you from moving more than one room away from
anybody you are capable of attacking. For the sake of a Knockout, this
only means your assigned partner.

Bloodlust will cause your shield tattoos (and similar abilities) and
prismatic barriers to instantly dissipate. It will also cause you to
passively lose your endurance and willpower.

Of course, if the fight still continues to go unresolved, I may have to
utilize my infamous pixie toxic cloud!
