Drakefire Chasm v1.3.1 Released

'Tis a fairly small release, though I did finally manage to track down certain targeting bug that has been in the game since the beginning.

I did a handful of balance tweaks as well; many of the weak will abilities got buffed. Ball breath is more viable option to choose now, too. In fact, I beat the game with it while playtesting.

I also renamed the unique adventurers. It was silly to give them names after Warcraft characters with one letter changed even though 11 of the 12 adventurer types are very much inspired by WoW's player classes. It started to annoy me for various reasons and thus they now have somewhat better names.

And if you haven't already, you should totally head to Mr. Doull's blog and vote for Ascii Dreams Roguelike of the Year. (You can pick as many as you want!)
