- Gave every piece of equipment a number of rune slots (better equipment has more slots)
- Right-clicking a piece of equipment now opens a menu for adding/changing runes

Combat
- Changed the base damage of weapons

- Damage other than physical is not distance-based
- Gave the display of damage during combat a "-" sign in front of it
- Made the location of damage displayed during combat be a bit random (but still in the vicinity of the character affected)
- Added a "Victory" and "Defeat" screen for when combat is finished (now requires clicking before returning to the map)
