Patch Notes - May 5th, 2020

Fixed dozens of miscellaneous spell description errors.

All merchants in Pocket Plane have been labeled with their relevant supplies. Complimentary refreshments are also now available near the bank. Thanks for donating!

MISCELLANEOUS
Character creation features more informative descriptions of races, classes, and statistics.
Dozens of previously lost strings (mostly descriptions for AAs and spells) have been restored.
