Super quick post. I've been furiously spending my evenings working on the combat system. It's coming along certainly, and I've still got a good bit to do, but I'm certainly moving it along in the right direction. Maybe with a bit of luck, I'll have a better update to post in another few days. But my test characters are certainly doing their worth, fighting giant spiders and such as I test things out.
Tomorrow, I'll be adding threat to the monsters, so that I can start to work out who they want to target, then let them start attacking and write the code that will let them move in the right places as they see fit.
